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.

Why We Love This

The Tipperary Eventer offers upper body protection for riders of all levels without restricting movement. The lightweight, dual density foam segments provide a high level of impact reduction. The patented FLEX construction ensures maximum mobility, a comfort fit and superior air circulation. The full-length zippered front closure allows for easy on and off and the side laces provide a personalized fit. Riders will experience improved posture. Angled at the front, the Eventer accommodates various rider positions while the extended back covers the tailbone. The shell is covered in lightweight and breathable Durasport for long-lasting wear and easy care. Features a soft roll collar for added comfort.

Ingredients

(Maintenance Dose = )
Ingredient Per Serving Per Pound

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 Vest is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 67.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! I bought this after I got bucked off my new green Arab gelding. Nothing broken but lots of bruising. I was grateful I was wearing my helmet but while recovering I decided I needed additional protection in case (hopefully not) this happens again.Love the quality of this vest and how lightweight it is. I still feel I have freedom of movement and I feel more confident with the extra protection. I feel it runs a little large.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable The safety vest is very comfortable and does not feel restrictive when I am riding. I would recommend this vest for any type of riding.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not comfortable for me Bought it hoping it would work. Armhole cutouts on the front side are too small for me. I'm relatively thin, and it would cut into me when I put my arms in a forward position. Nicely made though. Hard to find one made for a man's body though.

    Date published: 2017-05-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable I am still recovering from the fall that convinced me to buy this vest. But I find it comfortable and am hopeful that it would provide protection if/when I ever go off again. Sizing: the size small fits me and I am 36 up top and 31 waist, usually size 10.
    Date published: 2017-04-18
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable I bought this vest one year ago and after about 4 months the zipper started popping open on its own. I should have returned it but didn't and now I am having a heavy duty zipper sewen in. For the price I would look at different front closures. That being said I rode cross country in summer heat took two awkward falls without even a bruise and the vest is really comfortable.5 stars for rib protection 1 star for zipper.
