Designed for hacking, jumping, eventing and other competitive disciplines, the Hit Air MLV-C Vest provides unrivalled shock buffering protection in the event of a fall. The Hit-Air MLV-C vest inflates in only 0.25 seconds, as soon as you come out of the saddle. In cases of a rotational fall, the airbag will inflate before the rider reaches the ground and greatly lessen the risk of crush injuries. The airbags deflate slowly after a fall, to prevent further injuries, and can be re-used after deflation by changing the gas canister. Special tools are included with the Hit-Air MLV-C vest for this purpose, along with one free gas canister.

The vest is securely attached to the saddle with a saddle strap and lanyard (included) which attaches to the stirrup bars. When the lanyard is pulled with a weight of 35kg (the weight of a small child) the Hit-Air system activates and the vest inflates. The airbags protect your back, neck, spine, collar bone, internal organs and ribs. The neck airbag can decelerate the neck in an accident, preventing whiplash and hyper-extension. The Hit-Air range is also the only inflatable safety vest range to include rib cage airbags. Hit-Air’s unique patented technology has been lab-tested, won safety awards and even been used by mounted police forces.

The Hit-Air MLV-C vest offers superior comfort and flexibility with adjustable straps, adjustable lanyard length and a lightweight feel. It can be worn with other body protection or on its own; additional armour can also be added (sold separately). The back protection and all inflatable areas fold away securely when riding, so there is no interference with the saddle.

Please bear in mind that if you are also wearing a body protector under your Hit-Air Vest, this needs to be taken into account when choosing a size.

Really lightweight, I forget I'm wearing it! Comfortable and easy to use (though I haven't used it for inflation purposes yet, thank god!)
