    Hi there, I cannot decide on the size, thinking either Small or Xsmall T.

    Would appreciate your advice.

    I’m 5’2″, 125lb. Chest 34″ waist 28″, hip 36.5″. And between lower neck and tailbone about 20.5.

    • Amit Ramani

      We would recommend the Extra Small size. However, that is only a recommendation. It would be best to visit our Wellington store and be fitted by our airbag vest experts.

    Hi I am an adult and wanted to buy this vest. I am tempted to get x-small because that is what I wear for shirts (US) but I’m wondering if that will leave room for heavy sweaters. My second question is this: can people wear winter jackets over this vest. Finally just wanted to make sure that x-small doesn’t mean child size. Thanks!

    • Amit Ramani

      Hi Jennifer
      1. The Helite vest runs slightly bigger. For sizing, its best to refer to the size chart.
      2. The Helite vest has to be the outermost layer. So you can not wear winter jackets over this vest.
      3. X-Small is an Adult Sizes. For children, there are 2 separate sizes : Child Medium and Child Large.
      Hope that helps!

      If I wear a small adult and another type of equestrian vest, What size would I wear in your vest

      • Amit Ramani

        Hi Luann
        The Helite vest runs slightly bigger. Also, note that it is unisex. Please refer to the size chart for more information. We are here to help.

    Is the pictured best with an optional.cover.or no.cover? Are there methods to adjust the fit?

  8. Pam

    Can you wear this if you have a broken sternum. If it inflated will it rebreak your sternum if it’s not fully healed yet

    • Amit Ramani

      Hi Pam
      We inquired with the manufacturer for your question, since we wanted to provide the best available answer. Here is the their response:
      “This is a question that the customer has to ask their doctor. We do not know how strong is the sternum. If the rider falls from the horse on their chest, the sternum will be safer WITH the airbag than without.
      If the customer makes the choice to purchase an airbag vest, we advise to go up size.”

      We hope this helps address your concerns. Please feel free to reach out to us for any other questions/concerns.

    This vest is so comfortable I forget that I am wearing it while I’m riding. It gives me peace of mind that I won’t be injured as badly if I fall off. I followed the size chart and the fit was perfect for my measurements. Also, the shipping was so fast and the customer service was superb!

    Very happy with my purchase. I feel some peace-of-mind that my daughter’s chances of getting seriously hurt will be reduced greatly by wearing this vest.

    Excellent airbag vest! It is much lighter than I expected. It is not bulky at all. It has deployed a few times. Make sure you buy extra cartridges.

    Doris F (verified owner)

    I was skeptical about this vest. Having worn this for a few weeks, I can recommend it whole-heartedly! The fit is great and it is much lighter and minimal than all the other vests on the market (I did my research). I am glad I bought it. It has already deployed 2 times and both times, I was saved from what could have been major injuries.
    This airbag vest is well worth it!
    P.S. Just be sure to order extra cartridges, you will need them!

    I love the vest! So comfortable I keep forgetting I’m wearing it. Until I jump off and then I remember! I will be buying a lot of replacement cartridges for sure, but worth it!

    • Cheryl Rowder

      Is the.pictured vest with the optional cover or no cover

      • Amit Ramani

        Hi Cheryl
        The vest is standalone, no cover is required. The cover is optional and can be purchased separately. We have several covers for sale. Hope that helps!

    • Ginger Fitzsimmons

      How do the sizes run? I hate to buy the wrong size.

      • Amit Ramani

        Hello Ginger
        The size chart is listed in the product description page for your convenience. These are uni-sex vests. Please also note that they do run slightly larger (compared to Freejump airbag vests). Hope that helps!
