We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

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 Ride-Lite Vest is a great choice for the beginner or recreational rider. The short-backed style allows for a greater range of motion. Note that the shorter back length does not provide tailbone coverage.  A four-way twist molded channel system allows for better air flow and a close fit.

    Tipperary Ride-Lite Vest is rated 4.4286 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from light weight with good moveability For plus size ladies eventing , crash vests are a necessary nuissance. I was worried about finding one that would let me still move freely in the saddle and would fit over my chest. This does both. I cannot say it is the safest vets compared to the air vests or charles owen models however for lower levels it holds up well. And if you're like me and hate feeling constricted, then this is the vest for you. Multiple adjustments at shoulder and waist as well as a front zipper. Fits my longer torso well without hitting the saddle

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the size and comfort of this vest. I love the size and comfort of this vest. I originally ordered the small but it squeezed my boobs to tightly under the arm hole area. I returned it and am very happy with the medium size with my 36D bust size. The ladies at Smartpak are very helpful in helping you make a decision on your purchase. I tried three different brands before deciding on this one and size. I will definitely purchase from Smartpak in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great vest I bought this for my daughter who has just started riding cross country ...fit is great ( they have an accurate sizing chart) and based on previous reviews...I believe this is a very safe vest that provides excellent protection at a great price

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great vest for the price I really liked the vest...It fit well (except for length...I'm short waisted...so it's a little long in the back) I'm hoping I actually don't have to test it out!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I've ridden in this vest for over a year now, and have had no problems! I use it when jumping, or riding outside of the ring. It's lightweight yet durable. It gets thrown on the ground, stepped on, and wet, and still looks great! I've only had one fall in it, but I landed on my feet, so I can't comment on the safety aspect of it. Prefer this one over the more expensive Tipperary vest.
