Overview

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. Imported.

This vest is designed for adults, and to deploy properly the rider must weigh a minimum of 100lbs. If a rider is under 100lbs, please contact our Customer Care Team – we would be happy to help select the right vest!

Please Note: Our Regular Length Adjustable Bungee and Clip Bungee Lanyards are recommended for customers with horses 15.2 hands or taller. If a customer will be riding horses between 13.2 hands and 15.2 hands, we recommend a Short Length Lanyard. Air vests should NOT be used on horses under 13.2 hands.


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

Western Lanyard is available to be purchased separately. Click Here!

CAUTION: Safety equipment must fit properly and be appropriately secured with manufacture approved parts only. Altering or adding to safety equipment voids warranty and can result in injury. As a safety precaution, inspect all products prior to each use.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So nice and light! I love this vest! I felt weighted down with another brand and tried this one and am so happy I did. I don't even notice it when I have it on. I like that it provides more protection for your neck and lower back, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from well made I really like this vest and have not ridden with it yet. It is well made and fits great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this vest! So I finally took the plung and bought an Air Vest. I'll be honest in that my decision to buy the Hit Air over the competition brand was purely about money. I could afford this one and not the other. But to my surprise I actually like it ALOT better than the competition. It is so light on that you barely notice it. I wore it for the first time last weekend in an event and I am happy to say that I did not use it (No unplanned dismounts, yay!) But I can say it was great to use and it definitely made me feel safer. I had the oportunity to try on the competition vest and I was so happy with my decision to buy the Hit Air. I definitely recommend it to anyone and look forward to wearing it in the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Comfortable My daughter hated riding in her old foam vest, and was so happy when she outgrew it. But now that we own a spooky TB, I felt she needed another protective vest. There were no protests about wearing this one after the first day, and it is so comfortable that I wear it "just in case."
Date published: 2013-01-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Easy to assemble and adjust, durable, quick on and off for schooling and events. Gives me more confidence riding. Very glad I made the investment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Safety First We bought this vest for our daughter when she moved up to Intermediate. When my husband saw the xc jumps for the first time he freaked. I feel much better that when THAT time comes she will be much better protected. After seeing a friend that is also a trainer take a fall on a novice level horse, I am sold on this product. She said she didn't even get the breath knocked out of her when she landed on her back HARD. Even lower levels should be wearing this vest. However - we lost the button that attaches the ripcord to the saddle when switching it to another saddle so be careful not to drop it in the tall grass. We need to get a new one before the next event.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I bought it I just wore this for the first time today on a horse I am just beginning to ride for a friend. It definately made me feel a bit more confident knowing I had the vest on in case I were to fall off. It is comfortable and looks very durable. I am so glad I finally bought one!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Peace of Mind This is a good air vest. My daughter was worried that it would get in the way of her riding, but, it's so light and streamlined that she forgets she has it on. It's common for riders to jump off and forget to "unplug" - it's a good idea to put someone in charge of reminding them. The sizing on these vests can be confusing - - we've found that the 2XS-S seems to fits most riders, junior and adult. Please note, the saddle strap does not come with your purchase from Smart Pak - this is contrary to their website description. My personal opinion is you really need the saddle strap as it securely connects to the stirrup hooks. Attaching it to the D rings seems unwise as it could easily pull the rings out or break them. I did see one of these vests inflate - not a fall, just mistakenly forgot to unplug. The sound is odd, and the horses did startle a bit, but, none of the 5 horses who heard it seemed too spooked about it. We are very happy we made this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great vest I had one of these before, got from a mobile unit but it had a hole in it so I sent it back. I have been waiting on them to be the same price as the mobile unit for a while and came across smartpaks, the shipping was free so it was the exact same price! Be sure to buy the grab strap when you buy the vest, otherwise there will be some finagling trying to get something to attach the lanyard to. Love the vest, love the price!
