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 use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from 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'!).

Why We Love This

The Tipperary Eventer Vest is most preferred by world class riders! Light weight Flex-Pad design allows for a contoured custom fit that is not restrictive to movement. This versatile safety vest can be worn through all levels of competition, from beginner to Four Star, during schooling rides, and out on the trail.

Favorite Features

  • Dual density padding system provides superior shock absorption and impact reduction
  • Flex designed padding and construction allows for maximum mobility and increased airflow
  • Lightweight and breathable Durasport covering with a Micro Mesh inner lining and vented padding
  • Zippered front with adjustable side laces provide a custom fit
  • Scalloped lower front limits the amount of restriction in the saddle
  • Extended padding provides increased protection for the tail bone

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light and Comfortable Bought this a while ago, and I'm glad I did. A little bit small, but I like it a lot. It is super light and fits well. It is nice and soft and bends to your body. The only thing I don't like is how it gets hot in the summer (but that is how most vests are, anyway.) But overall it is worth the buy!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable Getting my first vest and have tried 6 different brands, but the Tipps are the only brand that doesn't feel as bulky or restrictive. This vest is very lightweight, moves with your body and non-contrictive feeling. Only concerns are: !) Although I ordered the correct size, it fits a little big above the chest area, so has a tendency to ride up at the top; 2) There is no extra protective flap on the sides to cover the area where the sides come together under the laces; 3) It is not rated (I am guessing because of #2).Really like it though and will try it in a smaller size to see if #1 is eliminated.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, great for novice evener For my 14 year old daughter - she found it very comfortable and gave her a lot of confidence in her first eventing trials. We are very pleased with this vest. We found the smart pak video on how to measure for size and how to put on the vest properly to be very helpful . She is 5'8" and 115 lbs and the Adult XXS worked great. Great price too for someone just getting into the sport.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what it used to be! I have two Tipperary vests. One I bought 3 years ago and love. The second I bought a year ago and it is not the quality of the original vest. The problem I had was that I would be riding and the vest would come unzipped. I was not wearing anything under it other than a top. I contacted Tipperary and the rep said that the unzipping was a problem they had been recently having. She told me to wear only a top under it no heavier than a t-shirt otherwise it would come unzipped. I told her that I was not wearing heavy layers under it only a thin top. I was originally told to send the vest back but I never received the shipping info. And really do I want a vest that I can't trust to not come unzipped? Otherwise the vest is comfortable and comes in fun colors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only Vest I Need I'm about to order my 3rd vest- first two needed to be replaced after hard falls. They've never shown any type of wear, I am just cautious about using possibly compromised safety equipment. I've used these Tipperary vests since I was 12 years old... now 21. They're so comfortable you don't even notice them, and the adjustable sides are awesome. I've always worth the Adult Small, even though I've grown quite a bit! For reference, I'm 5'9'' and 160lbs, but small chested. Larger chests probably have to go up a size. I only wish they were certified.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look and super comfortable! Love this vest! I'm actually a hunter rider, but ride young horses alone fairly frequently so wanted to get a little extra protection in case of an accident. After reading the reviews, I ordered an XS and it fits absolutely perfectly (I normally wear a S or M in shirts). I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to move around in. Just the extra, comfortable protection I was looking for!

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
