Hit-Air Body Protector Vests are specialised body protectors which are attached to the saddle and which contain compact air canisters which deploy air into the vest within milliseconds, cushioning the body in a fall and protecting vital organs, spine, rib-cage, collar-bones and neck. All Hit-Air apparel is especially light-weight, cool and more comfortable. These vests are also much quieter when deployed, making them much less likely to spook the horse during deployment. • The Hit-Air vest is designed as a shock buffering, stabilising system • The neck protection is designed to decelerate the neck in a fall, significantly reducing hyper-extension and whiplash • The Hit-Air vest is the only air vest on the market which has rib cage air bags to protect ribs and vital organs • The patented design allows the lower back protection to be folded away so that it does not interfere with the saddle • The vest inflates outwards (rather than inwards) so that the rider is not winded by the inflation process • The Hit-Air vest compliments all types of body protectors • It can be worn on its own, giving more protection to the rider on inflation than riding without protection • The inflation rate of the air vests is approximately 0.25 seconds*

** Please note that the air canisters, due to their highly pressurised state, are not sent via air shipping and can only be sent by road courier.
