As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

The Hit Air Advantage Airbag Vest is a culmination of more than a decade of experience in airbag technology by MUGEN DENKO, LTD. The Hit Air Advantage Airbag Vest is a "harness type" airbag that employs the new higher speed key ball mechanism which activates the CO2 cartridge.  Versatile design makes it perfect for riders of all equestrian disciplines including Eventing and Western.
Favorite Features
  • Top fast: 0.09 sec deployment time!
  • Attention to detail is unmatched by any other brand of airbag apparel
  • The neck airbag is significantly larger than the leading competitor's
  • The neck airbag inflates first, where most injuries occur, followed by (in only fraction of a millisecond) the torso and hip airbag
  • The key box where the CO2 cartridge is deployed is protected from dust and dirt and provides sound insulation to minimize spooking the horse during an unintended deployment
  • Added comfort in the saddle because the hip air bags are concealed inside a special pocket making it unnecessary to have a long "duck tailed" style that can be uncomfortable in the saddle
  • Cool to wear due to the open design
  • Cartridges: Advantage 2XS-S and S-XL uses 50cc 

Includes: Instruction Booklet, Canister-Changing Tool, (1) Canister, (1) Saddle Strap, & (1) Lanyard

    Hit Air Advantage Airbag Vest is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny! I bought this last Xmas, husband insisted. 54yrs old jumping 3'3-3'6 2x-3x times a week. Amateur, full time job, mortgage, etc. I have come off 2 times and it has worked perfectly every time! Maybe a bruise here and there but nothing major! Not hard to change cartridge-just follow the guide. I wear every time I jump, a great piece of safety equipment and mind. Be Smart!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended I bought this after coming off my horse and taking quite awhile to recover from broken ribs. It was recommended to me by a woman that was wearing it when she fell and had no injuries from which to recover. At age 66 I don't bounce anymore. Better than bubble wrap!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low Profile Safety Vest I was pleasantly surprised by how low profile this vest was when I got it. The CO2 canister arrivers separately, I read through the attached booklette pretty easy to assemble. I did read other reviews who mentioned the vest runs small. I found the opposite. I got the smallest size (since I run a size 2 in regular clothing) and it was a little big for me. I adjusted the internal belt which helped, but its still a tad large around the chest. I attached it using the hand grab supplied to my saddle and was ready for action! We live in So. CA, so it did run hot to ride in (and its only May!). It does allow for some air flow as the vest is partially open. But overall honestly, after 2 bad falls in 12 months, its worth the peace of mind. Highly recommend! It was backordered but I ordered anyway based on the recommendation of the rep I talked to and it arrived before the date stated.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked! Wish Sizing Were A Bit Different I bought this in January. I got the smaller size of the two options because I needed the smaller size for my chest size. I did wish that it were a bit longer over my tailbone. But I specifically wanted the Hit Air because of the size of its neck roll and the protection it provides to the head as a result, so I decided I'd be okay with the shorter coverage. Yesterday I got to see it in action. I came off my horse as a result of a buck. The vest inflated as I came off and before I hit the ground, although it actually didn't reach full inflation before I hit and continued to get tighter as I scrambled up. Everything from my mid-back up was perfectly fine - no soreness whatsoever. My head was protected from impact by the neck roll. I did have lower back pain (right above the tailbone), but got checked out and it was only bruised - nothing broken. I firmly believe that without the vest I'd be in much worse shape than I am. And note that I was wearing only the air vest, without a passive vest underneath. I am very, very happy that I had my vest on and plan to continue to wear it, even at shows over my jacket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight I have worn this several times..I can hardly tell I have it on..very lightweight! Glad to have this safety piece if I have an unforeseen dismount..Hopefully I will never have to use it but so glad that I have it now.
