All spare accessories are available separately.  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.  This model requires a 60cc 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 with the purchase of an air vest.

Hit-Air Equestrian Air Vests Safety:

  • The Hit Air vest is designed as a shock buffering, stabilising 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
  • The canister and key ball are enclosed to protect the mechanism from dirt in the event of a fall
