Add to Cart:


  • Manufactured by: Hit-Air UK Ltd


The Junior Hit-Air Equestrian Air Vest has all the design and protective features of the adult vest. The light-weight, neat fit is designed to encourage children to wear the Hit-Air vest every time they ride. It can be worn over a body protector for ultimate protection and to adhere to BE and Pony Club regulations in competition - or on its own if chidren woud otherwise wear no protection at all.

Children must weigh a minimum of 25kg to trigger the mechanise and the vest must be purchased on behalf of the child by an adult of 18 years or over. An adult must read the instructions on receipt and be responsible for fitting the vest, attaching the saddle strap and lanyard and changing the canisters once inflated. This option takes a 50cc canister.

Hit Air Equestrian Air Vests inflate outwards (rather than inwards) reducing the possibility of the rider being winded when inflation occurs

In addition to the vest, our offer includes saddle strap, lanyard and full instructions.  We have heard of cases where riders have bought third party CO2 cartridges at cheap prices only to find they do not work correctly with the Vest.  These models require a 50CC canister and we are making a special offer to enable customers to purchase spare canisters at a genuine reduction of 50% off the normal price.


Buy any model & get 1 spare/replacement CO2 cartridge at 50% off  + FREE UK SHIPPING

Hit-Air Equestrian Air Vests Safety:

  • The Hit Air vest is designed as a shock buffering, stabalising system, giving added protection to the neck, spine, collar bones, lower back, rib cage and vital organs
  • The neck protection is designed to decelerate the neck in the event of a fall, significantly reducing the possibility of hyper-extension and whiplash
  • The Hit-Air vest is the only air vest on the market which has rib cage air bags, helping to protect both ribs and vital organs
  • The patented design, allows the lower back protection to be neatly folded away, so that it does not interfere with the saddle
  • The vest inflates outwards (rather than inwards) so there is no possibility of the rider being winded by the inflation process
  • The Hit Air vest compliments all types of body protectors
  • It can be worn on its own giving considerably more protection to the rider on inflation than riding without protection
  • The inflation rate of the SV-2 and the LV models is 0.25 seconds, faster than the blink of an eye
