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, Advantage XL-3XL uses 60cc.

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

    Hit Air Advantage Airbag Vest is rated 4.4583 out of 5 by 24.
    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Came off horse stepped on me. Came off horse, he stepped on me, hoof print on the back of the vest, I didn't feel a thing. Everyone who saw it had heart failure, I got up and said I'm ok.I have between 3 and 4 pounds of Harrington rods in my back,

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safe Landing Sorry, should have hit 5 stars, not 1! My review is the previous one.
    Date published: 2015-11-20
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Safe Landing I have a good seat and can ride out most anything until the day my horse tripped and his head dropped out from under me and I had no choice but to fly off. Cracked a few places in my back which is what drove me to search for a way to avoid this should I ever fall again. This vest was so worth the investment. 6 months later my horse tripped and dropped out from under me again but his time I was wearing this vest and it worked beautifully and saved me from any injury. I will never ride without it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from probably saved my life I bought this last year after a park accident resulting in a lumbar fracture and broken pelvis. I had it on last weekend when I was "ejected". It might have saved my life, in addition to my helmet, but certainly protected me from injuries more serious than a broken shoulder! The only addition that I could suggest would be shoulder "caplets". I'm so glad I made this investment, and Thanks to Dover Saddlery and Smartpak for making it available to recreational riders.
