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.

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

Imported

  • 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

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.

Sizing

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 4.5 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable It's flexible and moves with you. I tried on a couple of others but they were like stiff boards. I bought this after a bad accident where I broke four ribs and collapsed a lung. I don't want to ever do that again! I ride primarily trail and some dressage. Both English and Western. I am 5'4", 115 lbs., 34" bust. I ordered the XS and it was way too long (hit the saddle and caused the vest to lift up into my armpits) so sent it back and ordered a Youth Large from another vendor. SmartPak doesn't carry the Youth sizes.It can be warm on a hot day but that's to be expected from any vest. Very easy to adjust. Makes me feel a lot safer. Wish I'd bought this long before I needed it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality I bought this recently. I love it, it's very well made. Fortunately, it hasn't been tested yet by a fall, but I'm taking comfort in it's approved certification. I would highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty comfortable for such a heavy duty vest! I had my spine fused as a 12-year-old kid (scoliosis surgery) and I purchased this vest after my surgeon recommended I wear some sort of torso protection if I were to get back into horseback riding as an adult (I'm now 28). I started taking lessons again after 16 years out of the saddle and I purchased this vest because of the high quality of construction and the spectacular safety rating. I've worn this vest now for a few rides and I really like it. I'm surprised by how comfortable it is! For a SUPER STURDY vest it is quite flexible and light, and I don't feel like it encumbers my movements. Maybe if you have never worn a vest (or really hate wearing a vest) it might feel awkward for you, but this vest softens a bit and molds to your body as you warm up and ride. The only downside I see to this vest is that it is hot if you are riding in summer weather, but hey, I rather be hot and safe(r) than the alternative!
    Date published: 2017-05-25
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this vest! I bought this vest about a year ago as I was going to start eventing, and it was a great choice! It offers much more protection than the other Tipperary vests, and is fairly lightweight. In really hot weather, it does become a little warm, but that's not a big complaint as I only have it on for about half an hour. Overall, great purchase!
    Date published: 2017-04-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Update for me I bought this vest after trying 3 other styles. Thirty years ago I evented in a Tipperary, and still have it-in the colors of the farm I rode for. Felt that I needed to wear one at times now, as my Thoroughbred can be bratty at times and my new riding./driving Haflinger I want to ride out and about. One never knows. I am still hassling the fit. I bought XS, and the side laces meet with a polo shirt on, and with winter sweaters, etc, how much gap there should be. Have not been on a horse or in a carriage with it yet, but definitely the best fit/most comfortable of all the other styles I tried. I am 5'5"/105 lbs./ 34" bust

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent safety vest! I bought this vest for my 14-year old daughter. It fits very well and she feels safer riding with it. The adjustable straps on the sides make the perfect fit very easy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vest mixing style and function well! Bought this vest after having the Tipperary Eventer vest and thought it would be good to upgrade to a "certified" vest. I agree the shoulders can sometimes feel restricted but its pretty rare that I even notice. Its certainly more bulky than the original Eventer but after it molds to your body shape you really forget you are wearing it. Its a little warm at times, but I never feel like I'm going to overheat...worst case is a sweaty shirt underneath but with a moisture wicking shirt it doesn't last long. I do feel the original Eventer had more cushioning (give) to it, but the Eventer Pro would spread an impact across the body better. The pull strings on the sides are a vast improvement to the original Eventer especially for folks that don't always have someone around to help out. That all said, I'm really happy with the Eventer Pro and think it will add a great layer of protection in case of unplanned dismounts!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and stylish Due to health issues, I was told I couldn't ride anymore. That was not an option for me and I decided to add a protective vest to protect my torso in addition to wearing a helmet, (I've been wearing a helmet since I started riding 35 yrs. ago). My doctor agreed with this strategy and I talked with several sales reps who helped me decide on the eventer pro as the most practical protection for me. The fit is good although, it is a bit heavy. I think it might be a bit warm in the summer. I like the fact that it is ANSI rated and has no gaps between the foam pieces. It could use a loop to hang it, I've been keeping it on a hanger in tack room of my trailer. I know it is cut high in the front to allow more mobility for jumping but, I would feel more protected if it came down just a bit farther in front. The XL doesn't come in tall sizes which would have given me a little more coverage. All in all, I am happy with this vest and my husband is much more comfortable with me continuing my equestrian pursuits.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Vest I've had this vest for a while and I do feel that it will protect me in situations but I feel that is is extremely uncomfortable! It constricts my shoulders while I ride.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feeling safer I ordered this vest after a lot of research. A year ago I had two train wrecks on a facility's lesson horse that physically, and then mentally, kept me from riding and kept my own horse unridden with only ground work. Now that I'm ready to get back to riding, I knew I needed something to protect my body and give me a better sense of safety. I followed the sizing chart on the website and the vest fits perfectly. It is lightweight and very comfortable. I love that I can adjust the size with the side laces. The ordering process was very simple and it was delivered as scheduled.
    Date published: 2015-07-08
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has one issue I bought this because I had a show coming up. This past weekend was the show. I had worn the best twice before and ridden in it, but I went to put on the vest and zip it up on Saturday before schooling cross country and the zipper broke up the middle. I was able to unzip it and fix it and I thought it was fine. At the show on Sunday though, it broke again. I was, again, able to fix it, but I don't like that it could do that on a cross country course. I love the vest and it's very comfortable, strong , and protective, but the zipper needs work. I know some other people how this happened to as well. One friends broke just the other day as well.
    Date published: 2015-05-19
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this vest! This vest is very comfortable to wear. The strings on the sides make it easy to adjust for a snug fit, and easy to loosen for easy removal after riding. The ANSI certification gives me confidence that the vest will protect me in a fall. I had one string come loose from the plastic ball holder and have not been able to re-thread it, but I can tie the strings together and still get by easily.
    Date published: 2015-03-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vest I love this vest. It is super comfortable and easy to move in yet feels very protective. I like that it meets safety standards so if USEA ever starts requiring vest be certified, I am set.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vest!! (Part 2) This is an update to my previous review of this vest. I ended up ordering another vest, as it seemed new stock had come in...and I am so glad I did. The new vest is absolutely perfect - I love it! Fit is perfect and it is so comfortable and lightweight. The vest is more expensive than other rated vests, but it is so worth it to have a vest that is this comfortable! I do not even notice I am wearing it. Just love it and I am so happy.
    Date published: 2014-09-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vest I am buying my first vest and have tried 6 brands. All other brands and styles feel too bulky and restrictive to me, but this vest fits and wears great - and unlike the Eventer mode,l is rated. Fits true to size, is very comfortable, feels very, very protective, doesn't ride up on me and molds to and moves with my body. It is very expensive, but it is far more comfortable than any other brand. The only issue I have with it, is it has a bit of an annoying smell to it. However, this is the only rated vest that works for me, so I am going to have to figure out a way to deal with that...and SmartPak's customer service is working on a solution - their customer service is awesome!!!
    Date published: 2014-09-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit!!! I am quite pleased with this vest!! It fits very well, is comfortable, and looks nice, too. The side laces are fantastic to adjust fit perfectly, and the segmented sections conform to the body without being bulky or stiff. I previously used the regular version of the Tipperary vest (really liked it!), but when it came time to purchase a vest, I decided to go with one which has been approved. I bought the tall/small size, and my measurements over clothing are 36" chest, 24" waist, and I'm 5'11".
