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 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

    Hit Air Equestrian Super Light Weight Vest is rated 4.8571 out of 5 by 14.
    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.

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value in air safety vests Bought for my 15 year old daughter. She is a novice level eventer and sometimes schools at higher levels. We have been pretty lucky so far, but have seen other riders take bad falls. The additional piece of mind is worth the cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best investment ever I bought this 3 weeks ago and unfortunately got a real life demo last week over a jump. It worked perfectly protecting my neck and torso. I was fine, my horse didn't spook and I'll never ride without it. Two witnesses to my fall have already ordered their own.
