Hit-Air MLV-C Motorcycle and Equestrian Air Vest
Shipping Weight: 4.00 pounds
Quantity in Basket: None
Light weight reflective airbag vest for either Equestrian or Motorcycle riding is designed for wearing over your favorite motorcycle jacket. This vest incorporates Hit-Air’s 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. Note: This vest along with the MLV-YC are sized larger to accommodate wearing over a motorcycle jacket. It does not come in a size small. See return policy at very bottom of page. For example, my wife wears a medium Advantage, a small PRO and cannot wear either the MLV-C or the similar MLV-YC, because the vest is too large for her. The PRO model is a more recent model very similar to this MLV-C, except that the PRO does not have reflective properties and does come in a size small (equivalent in size to a medium Advantage).
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, as it could be pulled from the horn depending on the trajectory of your fall. 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. Saddles not having a hole underneath the pommel may be able to use the Amish Saddle strap if you have securely attached rings on either side of saddle.
Note: Click on Accessories and then Bungee Lanyard (standard length) or Coiled Wire for detailed instructions with photos of attaching Bungee Lanyard or Coiled Wire to a Hit-Air English Saddle Strap. To attach securely to a western or endurance saddle, we recommend inserting a Night Latch (option under Accessories) or strong nylon dog collar through the loop in the Bungee Lanyard and then securing the Night Latch or dog collar around the pommel of your saddle.
