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

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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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 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.
    Date published: 2015-04-14
    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.
    Date published: 2015-03-02
    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.
    Date published: 2014-09-17
    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.
    Date published: 2014-06-20
    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!!!
    Date published: 2012-10-10
    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!
