Hit-Air Pro Plus
The Hit-Air Pro Plus has larger airbags than the standard Hit-Air vest to give the same quality protection for all riders. The air bags deploy just as fast as the Original Hit-Air to keep you safe on your rides. The airbag is placed at the back of the key box to strengthen it’s shock buffering function. A panel of “VISCO ELASTAN”, an additional shock absorbing material, placed behind the CO2 cartridge and on each front rib panel provides additional protection.

My wife is a Hit-Air frequent flyer. She starts horses, rides trails/endurance, and obstacle courses, so unscheduled dismounts are an expected thing. She’s had the vest pop more times than I care to count, and every single time she’s hopped right up, dusted herself off, inserted a new co2 and jumped back in the saddle in just a few minutes. She’s come off in arenas, trails, and on concrete. Worse injury was a scuffed elbow on the concrete. None of our horses have spooked from the sound of the Hit-Air vest inflating (I’ve heard about other brands being so loud they scare the horse). These vests are truly amazing, and a huge comfort thing for me. We’ve even bought vests for friends, and special needs kids that ride, that’s how much we love and trust Hit-Air.

I have yet to have an unplanned dismount (inflation), knock on wood. IR riding in this vest about half a dozen times now. It is comfortable and I don’t really notice it once I’m in the saddle and riding. I like the two-clip easy on and off and it is easy to clip in and out of the saddle. It does allow a bit more movement around my chest than a different vest others at my barn wear. However I think a little wiggle room is a good thing so that if/when the vest does inflate it doesn’t squeeze the air out of your lungs.
