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
  • Zip front
  • ASTM F1937-04 SEI Certified for maximum protection

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.

Tipperary Eventer Pro is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 35.
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.

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.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my new Vest I bought my vest a few months ago and I love it! I bought the tall and it is tall enough, that is the hardest part about buying vets as an average weight tall person. It is light weight, it breaths, and I feel like it moves with me instead of against me. I also love that it meets all of the new safety standard world wide.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long enough in torso I bought a small tall for my 5’11 145 lb frame and it seems to fit well and covers my tail bone. Don’t notice it when riding so comfortable. Concerned about reviews on zip failures but instructions for use say to have side strings loose while zippering or unzipping so hopefully this will save the zip. Seems high quality. Not had it long enough to rate 5 star.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wished it would have worked for me I was really hoping this would work for me. I am having a difficult time finding a protective vest that will fit.According to most measurement charts for the various brands, I am a small in the waist but a large in the chest. It seems as though most protective vests are made to fit men. I have already tried an Aerowear (couldn't breathe in it) and a Tipperary eventing vest, which really ran large and felt like no protection at all. This vest was substantial, comfortable, and fit great, except for the spine length. I knew when I ordered it that it might not work. It was so long in back I could sit on it. I really wish they made it in a short. If the length will work fine for you I think you will be very pleased with this vest.Unfortunately I had to return it. The quest continues.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from NOT HAPPY! IN FACT, PRETTY SAD. After taking a nasty fall in December, 2017, fracturing two vertebra, I made a commitment to myself to always wear a protection vest for future rides. I purchased this one in purple as it had the highest safety rating (also the most expensive). Over the course of a few weeks, the zipper came undone three times so I sent it back, ordering a replacement. I've had the replacement for a few weeks and today, the zipper came undone on the new vest! (It opens from the bottom up while riding). Further, I learned that my friend, who ordered this same vest in black, had her zipper come apart the other day as well! To top it off, I was reading the Q & A for this vest and noticed some comments about broken zippers (so this is apparently an ongoing problem they have not resolved). The response states, "Thanks for your question! Many boot and shoe repair places or seamstresses can easily replace any kind of zipper, however there is no guarantee for the zipper on this vest." WHAT???? No guarantee for the zipper???? For a PROTECTION vest? I have spoken to the Smartpak people several times about the issue with both vests and they have been very helpful stating they are reporting this problem with Tipperary and they suggested I try another brand which I will do sadly, as I've gotten used to the feel of this vest and feel otherwise protected by it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skeptical Purchaser I have worn my vest about 4 times now and I am really pleased with how comfortable it is to wear, and easy to put on also!!
Date published: 2018-03-19
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfort is only "Pro" This vest is about $100 more than the USG "Flexi" series and not as highly rated. But, it's not as bulky and it's more comfortable. When ASTM tests their vests, they test up to 24.5 joules of kinetic energy, whereas BETA 3 testing uses 35-45 joules. So, the BETA Level 3 testing is higher. I went with the USG Flexi vest, which also happens to come in brown which looks quite chic with my brown field boots and brown helmet ;-)
