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

*** Airbag vests should only be used with english saddles or western saddles without a horn***

Hit Air Equestrian Super Light Weight Vest is rated 4.888888888888889 out of 5 by 18.
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
