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 4.5 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, non obtrusive when riding. This vest has given me back my confidence to ride after having taken a fall. I forget I have it on when I am riding.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes me feel safer on XC I was concerned at first with the sizing b/c there are limited options but was pleasantly surprised how well the vest fits over my other XC vest. I can hardly tell I have it on. I also like the new design on the back. One of the reasons that I have waited to get an air vest is b/c I felt like some vests are too long in the back and this modified design is more contour to your body, but when it is popped the air bag overs the correct parts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have 2 of these vests! I should have bought this vest years ago! Am currently riding a green gelding on trail who is going through a spooky phase. Well, at least I hope it's a phase :-) Anyway, I have had 4 "opportunities" to try this vest out and it is just perfect. The vest blows up immediately and I almost bounce when I hit the ground. I bought another one for my young friend to use when she rides along with me. It's so worth every penny. Buy one and save yourself lots of pain and injuries!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every rider should have one I bought this for my daughter. I was concerned about the fit; it only comes in 2 sizes and she was probably right in between. It fits fine but I would consider that it has to go over a heavy coat in the winter in the northern states. I ordered it in early Dec and got it in mid January. Quite a wait. The shipping date changed every 2 days. However now that it is here, I am happy. I hope we never have to see if it really works. It is expensive, but I know that a broken neck or back is much more expensive.
