Why We Love This

The Hit Air Equestrian Super Light Weight Vest is a "harness type" airbag that employs the new higher speed key ball mechanism (component that activates the CO2 cartridge). This model is especially light weight, cool and more comfortable than the competing brand. It is also much quieter when deployed than the competing brand, making it much less likely to spook the horse during an unintended deployment.
Favorite Features

  • New high speed airbag deployment system
  • Recommended for use over body protector
  • Uses 48cc cartridge
  • Weight 800g (1.76 pounds)

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

100% Happiness Guarantee
HappinessGuarantee
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 Equestrian Super Light Weight Vest is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great experience with this product I bought two of these vests. My sister was riding with me wearing a vest and came off her horse. It inflated perfectly...I heard the hiss but it didn’t seem to spook the horse particularly. My sister was fine although she wet her pants when the vest squeezed her...it was funny. We never ride without them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits I haven't worn the vest yet, my horse is ill...but as an older rider, I'd like to protect myself as much as possible..

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heard great things I heard great things about these vests so while I had the most eyes decided to get one. Haven't used it yet though. Seems light weight n will keep me from breaking any ribs at my age.
    Date published: 2016-10-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from just what I was hoping for. I did a lot of research and finally decided on this vest due to it's track record and reviews from multiple sources. I bought it to use in addition to my Tipperary vest when jumping and for cross country and to wear alone on those stupidly hot days when I wear nothing when on the trail.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What great concept The Hit Air vest is everything the reviews say it is. I ordered it after seeing an endurance rider get bucked off, the vest inflated and she got up and walked away! I sent the one I ordered back (m-xls size) because it was too long. The smaller one isn't going to work for me either due to length which is very disappointing. Awesome staff at Smartpak who patiently helped me work thru the sizing issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Made Vest Just purchased this Vest and my 13 year old daughter used it at a 3-Day Event over the weekend. The Vest fit well, made with nice durable material and was adjustable. My daughter is very petite, however, the XS-S seems to be a great fit:) When considering, I would say that the vest runs a bit large, but that works because she wears an additional padded vest under it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS VEST! Yesterday at my cross country schooling event I took a fall at a tabletop and hit my back on the far corner. This vest took what could've been a horrible situation and left me walking off the course. I'm so grateful for this vest and highly recommend it to any looking for a light weight air vest

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Provides added safety and confidence I have been wearing the Hit Air vest for about three years. I originally bought it for rides on my three year old, but after seeing how it cushioned falls, I began wearing it on all my horses including out foxhunting. I have a couple agile ponies with quick spins and I have more than gotten my money out of the vest. I highly recommend it, particularly for mature riders who find the ground a bit harder than it used to be. It provides an added level of confidence if you are riding a young or spooky horse. I recently bought a second vest as the bladder on my first burst after the latest fall. Waiting to see if, and at what cost, it can be repaired. But meanwhile, didn't want to be without a vest.
    Date published: 2015-08-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and comfortable I am 62 years old and recently had a fall. My back was black and blue and I couldn't ride for two weeks during which time I decided to buy a protective vest for any future mishaps. I tried a regular vest that was too hot and too heavy, so I went for the Hit Air product. I live in the Phoenix, AZ area and even though it hasn't reach 100 degrees yet, the vest is so airy that I'm sure I'll wear it all summer. My only fear is that I'll forget I have it on and may someday dismount before detaching it.
