  • The Long Awaited New Super Light Weight Vests Models Are Here!

    Super Light Weight Vest High Visibility for either Equestrian or Motorcycle riding is Hit-Air’s latest model for wearing over your favorite motorcycle jacket. This vest incorporates Hit-air’s new super high speed airbag deployment system. The system deploys the airbag in 0.18 sec. By comparison the human eye blink rate is 300 to 400 msec or 0.3 seconds. 
    The Hit-Air MLV model is also super light weight making it comfortable while wearing it over your favorite jacket or coat! It is so light, cool and comfortable you will hardly notice that you are wearing it! The Hit-air MLV model is ideal for the rider who has one or more jackets in his or her wardrobe but want the superior protection that the Hit-air is famous for.

    Large double line reflectors and fluorescent color with high visibility for day and night riding. 

  • New super high speed airbag deployment system 0.18 sec
  • Optional back protector
  • Designed to wear over your favorite motorcycle jacket or vest
  • Uses 60cc cartridge (one already included)
  • Available Sizes: Small to XLarge
  • Optional chest padding and CE back padding.
  • Equestrian sport: Recommended use with only English saddles or with western saddles WITHOUT horns (due to risk of hooking buckles on saddle horn)

  • Don't attach the included coiled wire (also referred to as tether or lanyard) to any decorative saddle ring that could break away during a fall. Don't loop over a saddle horn. You shoud be able to stand up in the saddle stirrups without being overly stretched or too loose. If you ride English, you may need the optional English saddle strap. For western or most endurance saddles, we usually recommend attaching the coiled wire via our optional Night Latch or a strong nylon dog collar that buckles around the saddle's pommel.


    FAQ

      • Question: What it is the main difference between a Hit-Air vest for motorcycle and for equestrian sport? 
      • Answer: The motorcycle models have reflective properties for higher visibility and use the longer coiled wire (also known as a tether or lanyard). If you practice both sports, you should get both the motorcycle and equestrian coiled wires (one is included with the vest). The equestrian model is shipped as default, so call us if you require the motorcycle model or both.

      • Question: Does the vest come with a cartridge?
      • All vests come with one included cartridge, but we recommend you always carry a spare. If you buy spares with the purchase of your vest, then there is no added shipping cost. Cartridges are considered hazardous material and must ship ground.

      • Q: Can I use a vest with buckles on a saddle with a horn? 
        A: Yes, but realize that it is possible to snag your buckle on the horn, so unbuckle before dismounting. It is possible even to snag the zippered model Advantage or any article of clothing, so be careful to avoid snagging your vest.

    TERMS AND CONDITIONS:

    PRODUCT PURCHASE RELEASE OF LIABILITY, WAIVER OF CLAIMS AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK AGREEMENT.

    ASSUMPTION OF RISK/WARNING:

          I am aware that operating, riding or being a passenger on a motorcycle, ATV or other power sports vehicles involve certain inherent risks, dangers and hazards which can result in serious personal injury or death.

          I am aware that "equine activity" e.g. horseback riding and other equestrian sports events, including professional racing, dressage, show jumping, eventing, polo, vaulting, endurance, harness racing, and others have certain inherent risks, dangers and hazards which can result in serious personal injury or even death.

          "Inherent risks of equine activities" means those dangers or conditions which are an integral part of equine activities, including, but not limited to:

    (1) The propensity of an equine to behave in ways that may result in injury, harm, or death to persons on or around them;

    (2) The unpredictability of an equine's reaction to such things as sounds, sudden movement, and unfamiliar objects, persons, or other animals;

    (3) Certain hazards such as surface and subsurface conditions;

    (4) Collisions with other equines or objects; and

    (5) The potential of a participant to act in a negligent manner that may contribute to injury to the participant or others, such as failing to maintain control over the animal or not acting within the participant's ability.

         "Participant" means any person, whether amateur or professional, who engages in an equine activity, whether or not a fee is paid to participate in the equine activity.

          I am also aware that the Hit-air airbag line of safety apparel sold, marketed and or distributed by Riding Safe, LLC, cannot guarantee protection against injury or guarantee increased safety in all situations. I hereby freely agree to assume and accept any and all known and unknown risk of injury while using any Hit-air airbag safety apparel

          As of 2001 there are 45 states with Equine Activity statues that provide that a person may not bring a lawsuit if the activity resulted from an inherent risk of equine activities, with the exception of providing defective tack or failing to match horse with rider. New York has proposed equine activity statue not yet enacted.
