Point Two has revolutionized safety in the equine world by combining the latest airbag technology within a lightweight and comfortable jacket. This lightweight, durable air vest is chosen by riders all over the world, for everything from eventing to hunter/jumpers, dressage, eventing, polo, schooling, and hacking out on the trail. It inflates in less than one second to protect the rider in the event of a fall. Point Two Air Vests supplied 14 Nations at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics.
The ProAir model is designed to be worn in conjunction with a conventional body protector for the highest level of safety, but it can also be worn on its own. During Cross Country phases in most high-level competitions, the organizers actually require the ProAir to be worn with a BETA approved Level 3 body protector, like the Point Two ProFlex. However, testing has shown our air vest to actually be more effective than a typical body protector when compared one-to-one. In fact, Point Two Air Vests are the only air vests to be certified with SATRA M38 as an air vest alone. See Point Two’s safety page for more information on certification.
Regardless of what kind of riding you do, whether it’s hunting, jumping, dressage, or trail riding, the ProAir vest works on its own as a lightweight, less cumbersome body protector.
This vest is designed for adults, and to deploy properly the rider must weigh a minimum of 70lbs. If a rider is under 70lbs, please contact our Customer Care Team – we would be happy to help select the right vest!
*Please note that the ProAir vest is the only Point Two model that shouldn’t be worn with a western saddle, because the bottom clip could potentially get hung up on the horn. The Point Two Hunter and SoftShell models can be worn with western saddles as they have zip closures instead of straps with clips.
Care instructions: Spot wash with water and mild soap. All Point Two air vests should be sent to the Point Two office in Wellington, Florida for annual servicing/maintenance. The vest will be dismantled, thoroughly cleaned, all parts inspected and tested, and a brand new airbag will be put in EVERY TIME.
***Please note that only bayonet canisters can be used on new vest purchases. If purchasing extra or replacement canisters, please select the bayonet option. Screw in canisters will only work for older vests that are manufactured before 2012.***
Please also note sizing options in order to select correct canister size for your vest:
50cc canisters can only be used with:
Child Small ProAir
Child Medium ProAir
Child XL P2RS (Hybrid)
All other vests should use 60cc canisters
