"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 am finally returning to jumping after a fall where I was not wearing an air vest. I now wear my Hit Air vest everyday while I get back jumping..I do not want to risk anything setting me back again. I will certainly never again leave the start box without it!"

"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!"

"I was first introduced to the new Equestrian air vests in fall of 2009. My first impression was that they looked big and uncomfortable to ride in, also they were outrageously expensive. When Tom showed me the Hit-Air equestrian vest I was amazed by the size and weight of it. You can’t even tell you’re wearing it! This got me interested and with the safety benefits there’s no reason to ever leave the start box without it! "

Initially I was a skeptic of the new air vest on the market. I started to
research other vests and ultimately found actual testing that proved the "Hit-Air" vest to be my choice.
I can be assured that the "Hit Air" vest not only has proven results in testing, but I have fallen in competition and it prevented me from injury and soreness. It’s not only proved it has a very sleek fit and deploys outward to prevent me from over or under tightening my vest! Thank you Hit Air for developing an affordable, reliable alternative to my and my clients’ safety!

“I was first introduced to the air vest earlier this year and since I've started wearing it, I couldn't imagine ever having jumped without it.
Not only do I jump all my horses in the Hit-Air at home, but so do all of my students. These vests inflate within hundredths of a second, offering protection and support from the base of your neck down to
your tail bone! I feel so much safer and secure going out of the box with my Hit-Air vest that I have found my riding to even be better! Thank you Hit-Air.”

"I love my hit air vest. I feel like I have my own personal roll bar on but never feel it is in the way or impeded my flexibility at all. Great Product!"

I use the Hit-Air Vest no matter what level I'm showing. It gives me that extra boost of confidence to go above and beyond. It’s a much better feeling knowing that I have that safety layer, in case I meet the ground! It’s like an airbag in your car. I LOVE IT!
