"I'm not going out on xc of any level without my Hit-Air vest. It offers superior protection from neck to tailbone when inflated. I'm even more impressed how discrete and secure it is when deflated."
"I had been looking to purchase an air vest since earlier in the year when they were introduced in Aiken. The cost and size of the competitor's vest concerned me, so when HIT-Air introduced their smaller and lighter product--which was actually the first air vest designed in the UK--at roughly two-thirds the cost, I thought I would give it a try.
At the end of the day, I do not think any one safety item will make riding ever completely safe, but I can tell you that after hitting the ground a few weeks ago I was able to pop up without any bruising or tenderness which was quite nice as none of us like to be banged up and sore!"
"Thanks to my HIT-Air Vest I came away without even a scratch to my entire upper body after my intermediate horse fell on me at a competition. There is no doubt in my mind, had I not been wearing my HIT-Air Vest that I would have had serious injuries to my upper body."
