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

At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Hit Air Advantage Airbag Vest is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfortable and Great Fit After breaking my neck as a result from a bad equestrian fall I am so happy this vest gives me a sense of security. So easy to wear. Don’t even notice it when schooling or competing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I just purchased this vest a couple weeks ago. I wear it every time I ride. It's very comfortable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfy I wanted something light weight with out all the bulk and being able to move freely was a big thing I ride western so when I looked at this vest I did a lot of product research do to the cost and I found that everyone loved it so I took the plunge a little skeptical about the attachment to activate it I attached it to my pommel I had plenty of free movement without getting caught up in it and free to move around in the saddle as a trail rider would I give it’s 4 stars because I hope I never have to use it but if I didn’t or I hope it makes the 5 Star

    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.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sizing is Wierd I owned a Hit-Air vest before and stupidly sold it, so now I am in the market for another one. The sizing on the Hit-Air Advantage says one size will fit small to extra large. I called SmartPak to confirm this. Extra large usually covers me for most items, but unfortunately, this vest didn't even come close, so sadly, I had to return it. I know that the vest is a great item and regret that this one didn't fit. In notes below, I have marked "runs small". That is for someone looking for extra large, especially that will go over bulky outerwear.
    Date published: 2016-11-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of Mind Sales and service for this item was excellent! Let's face it; an equestrian life is a joy and a risk. Purchasing the Hit Air Advantage Airbag Vest has given me that extra boost of confidence. The time and care in my phone order gave me assurance that the fit would be correct. I love it!
