Equestrian disciplines are marked by tradition and in many of these disciplines the riders wear tailored, sophisticated outfits. However, the impact of rider safety has been felt heavily in the sport the past few years and it’s no secret that horseback riding comes with its risks.
An airbag safety vest has provided a significant increase in rider safety and injury reduction. While of course there is no guarantee, the added safety element has gained popularity throughout the showjumping world.
You may be wondering, how does the zip-in vest work with our coat? It’s so simple you have to see it to believe it! The coat has been designed with a zip all-around for perfect compatibility with the Zip’in 2 Airbag by HELITE. Once the vest is zipped in the coat is secured with a zip and buttons, for a double closure, and the leash is pulled through a ready-made exit hole to attach while riding.
Equiline’s airbag compatible show coat is made with our B-Move bonded and perforated fabric that provides an ultra-light feel to the rider for all day comfort. Most airbag coats can feel heavy, but our unlined, bi-elastic design provides maximum comfort and remains breathable in all weather conditions.
