Why We Love This

The Eventer Pro is Tipperary’s state-of-the-art cross-country vest featuring the latest technology, an anatomical fit and carries ASTM/SEI certification. Our patented Tectonic foam plating is a unique double layer pattern that moves and flexes with the rider without any separation or gaps providing unmatched support. The Live Spine™ technology provides increased impact protection while flexing and matching the riders’ movements. The torso is cut higher in the front to encourage agility in the hip angle and lower at the back to cover the tailbone. Shoulders are designed to allow maximum reach and rotation of the rider’s arms. Flex Lace Closures™ provide a customized fit and allow the vest to expand and contract with the rider’s movement. As a safety precaution, please inspect product before use.

Also available in children's sizes! Tipperary Children's Eventer Pro


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.

  • Evolution Foam™ conforms to each athletes body shape and allows for air return circulation, cooling the body in high temperatures along with specialized antibacterial agents that prevent the vest from odor build up
  • Lightweight, high density foam provides powerful protection from impact
  • Tectonic Foam Plating™ in a unique double layer pattern, moves and flexes with the rider without any separation or gaping
  • Live Spine™ works in conjunction with the Tectonic Foam Plating™ to provide increased impact protection while moving, flexing, and mimicking the athletes movements
  • Higher cut torso provides greater mobility through the hip angle
  • Flex Lace Closures™ along with additional darting on the front and back of the vest provide a more customized fit allowing the vest to expand and contract with the athletes movements while offering easy quick fit adjustment with draw string clip and added side flap protection
  • Reflective trim around the edges of the vest provides higher visibility and increased safety

Ingredient Amount

To ensure your Tipperary body protector offers the optimum level of protection, it is important
that it fits correctly.

What you Need:

  • A soft fabric measure tape with inches or centimeters. Don’t have one? You can download
    and make your own here. All you need is a pair of scissors and clear tape.
  • A friend to help.
  • Wear a T-shirt.

How to Measure:

  • This vest requires measurements of the chest,
    waist and spine. Remember, the Competitor vest
    is designed to be adjustable.
  • Chest: Under the arms at the widest part
    across the chest.
  • Waist: At natural waist.
  • Spine: Measure from the base of the neck
    to where your belt would sit.
  • Note that the “long” version of the vest adds
    approximately 2” or 5cm to the FRONT of the vest.
    Note this vest is NOT designed to cover the tailbone.

Putting on Your Vest:

  • Each time you put on your Competitor vest,
    make sure all the Velcro® straps at the sides are
    loose to prevent undue stress on the zipper.
  • Make sure the zipper is seated well and do it up.
  • Adjust the straps to ensure a snug fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing vest I bought this a while back and I’m so happy I did. I feel so much safer while riding. This vest fits nicely and doesn’t get to hot in the summer months.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as comfortable as the original vest Since I have gained weight I decided to upgrade from my current older model Tipperary and go up a size. I figured that I should try the Pro since it is "more protective". Unfortunately it is also heavier and feels more constricting in my chest, even after I got a larger size. It also gapped between my armpit and my chest. I think that vests are not really made for us "busty" girls.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ugh I’m sure this is a great vest for eventers but it feels like a straitjacket. It comes up high under the arms and made my ribs sore. I’ve tried three vests and all are uncomfortable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I researched many riding vest after purchasing a new horse. I decided on the Tipperary Pro 3015 due to the reviews & long standing name of Tipperary. However, recently after riding several months in this vest my new horse did decide to go into a full bronc buck & I was left with broken ribs on each side including broken ribs under my shoulder blade. I did not land on any rocks, just dirt. I am disappointed because I wore this vest faithfully even on five hour trail rides in the hot summer heat which can get pretty hot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hoped I wouldn't have the zipper issue but... My vest just arrived and I was so excited because after tons of research, even knowing that there was a possibility I was going to have issues with the zipper like the other reviews, I hoped I wouldn't be one of them. I tried it on and it fit great, was pretty comfortable and I went to sit down in tall chair so I could feel how it would be when sitting....and the zipper popped open from the bottom. I wasn't even riding or anything. Super bummed but I can't justify keeping it and having to pay someone to put buttons/a better zipper in on a $400 vest. Just grateful SmartPak will let me return it for free!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good safety insurance when riding different horses I purchased after much research, including a CO2 inflatable type. Here's why I went this route. I usually fly to the location I'm going to trail ride & airlines, don't like air cartridge's. Many accidents happen when mounting or dismounting & the HitAir type don't protect when not hooked up. Other horses may not respond well when the air cartridge pops. This vest was long enough & this vest is ASTM F1937-04 SEI Certified.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Size Perfect I got this in exchange for the Champion vest that did not fit at all. This vest is a great fit and the quality seems good as well. Jessica who works there recommended the switch and she was spot on! She was the deciding factor.
Date published: 2020-10-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and full coverage Good product and reasonable price. Comfortable and light. Full coverage of body. I’m In a southern state and vest is not hot like some I have used. Easy to adjust to fit snug but allows free movement.
Date published: 2020-04-04
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty zipper I have two old Tipperary safety vests that had worn thin. They lasted so long that I was confident about buying a replacement but to my disappointment after a handful of rides the zipper has consistently become undone from the bottom leaving the vest fastened only my neck.
Date published: 2020-03-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Tipperary Eventer Pro! This was my first safety vest purchase and I spent about 2 or 3 months researching all the available options. I was looking for a non-air vest that didn't break down in the brutal Florida heat. Speaking of heat, yes it does make summer riding a little warmer but the side lace helps with air flow. I just wear a thin shirt with it. It definitely does not make it so warm that I won't use it. I have 5 and 6 year old geldings that are pretty level headed but being introduced to trails and I am in my 50's now and don't bounce like I used to. It gives me a bit more peace of mind having this vest. Some reviews stated the zipper malfunctioned and that is why I waited to review. The lace sides allow for it to be kept looser while zipping then the side lace can be easily snugged up vs zipping with the vest already tightened on the sides. It is still plenty rigid but quickly formed to my shape and have had zero issues. It still looks like new after heavy use for over 6 months. I highly recommend this vest.
