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.

  • Removable liner for easy washing
  • Adjustable waist & shoulder straps
  • Floating sternum pad

    Tipperary Ride-Lite Vest is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice vest, it isn't too heavy, or bulky I bought this for everyday riding and jumping. I recently fell off and broke some ribs, so this makes me feel more secure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable I am an amateur rider; this vest is so comfortable that I actually wear it, not only when required by rules. I’m not tall and I also appreciate that the back of this vest doesn’t bump in the cantle of my saddle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and does its job This vest works because my horse bucked me off again today and I did not get hurt! Two months ago when he bucked me off, I broke two ribs. I'm taking the horse to a professional to find out why he has started this new bucking behavior.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! The Velcro straps to adjust the fit makes this vest feel secure and comfortable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made item Got this a few weeks ago, chose it because it was a good brand but not super expensive. I know nothing about using these vests, and so far have not had a chance to try it out. I was please with how quickly the item arrived. I am impressed with the workmanship and the fit seems true to size. My shoulders might be a little narrow for the fit, so I will have to see how comfortable it is when I am holding the reins, or if it cuts into my shoulders. I love the adjustability of the vest, hoping it will work out well on the trail.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basic but good quality Got this for cross country as I am just starting to get into eventing. I am not sure if offers as much protection as the rated vests but for the price it fits great, is comfortable and well made. I am 5'5 and 125. XS fits well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality and fit I bought this to protect myself after an accident where I fell off my horse and broke multiple ribs. This vest is comfortable and lightweight. I forget that I'm wearing it while riding. I was worried it would be too hot in the SC heat but that has not been an issue. Wearing it gives me confidence. The Velcro straps are adjustable for a secure fit. The only complaint I have is that the vest makes a squeaking noise. It's not noticeable when riding, but when I'm tacking up it's a little annoying.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glad I bought it Bought this vest a few weeks ago and like it more than I thought I would. It doesn't interfere with my riding like I thought it might. My horse tends to spook and as I age and get more brittle bones I am concerned about coming off and getting hurt. Wearing the vest is something I can do to hopefully prevent a more serious injury if I do come off.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good quality but not for me I bought this for myself. I am short and small chested. the fit was fine, but overall was way to stiff. felt like a cardboard box at my low back but fine everywhere else. I returned this for a Tipperary youth size which still fit my back legnth and was much more form fitting in the small of my back. Thank you Smartpak for the return policy!!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works! I've been wearing this vest for nearly every ride since October 2014, and I just now had an opportunity to test its true effectiveness. I had a hard fall straight onto my back/side/behind this week, and I definitely feel that it made a difference. I fell from a 16h2 horse onto a gravel hill. I'm all scrapes and bruises elsewhere, but my neck, back, ribs, etc. feel completely fine. The vest protected me from the surface abrasions I would have gotten (it shows the marks that would have been on me, but didn't rip) as well as absorbing most of the impact. Once you get in the habit of wearing it, it's relatively comfortable and easy to incorporate into your routine. I don't feel that it affects my movement much, though it took a couple rides to adjust. I do think it runs a little large (I measured meticulously but the sides do overlap a lot when I fit it to myself snugly). It is warm to wear in the summer, but not unbearable. I'm pretty sensitive to heat, and I can manage to forget about it while riding. It's proven to be durable, at least for my riding level. I use it approximately 3 times a week, and the zipper and velcro are still going strong. No problems. It may not be the most heavy-duty vest for eventing, but I think it's great for anyone looking for some additional body protection in their daily riding.
