Do You Only Sell Helite Products?

Currently, we only offer Helite products. We will be expanding into other safety equipment in the near future.

 

Do You Offer Full Refunds on Helite Air Vests?

We do not offer full refunds because our Helite air vests are safety equipment.

 

What Body Parts Are Protected By The Air Vest?

If a fall occurs, Helite air vests are designed to offer optimal protection of these vital areas:

  • Neck - Spinal Column
  • Thorax
  • Hips
  • Tailbone

Additionally, the airbag vest compresses the trunk for better resistance to hyper-extension as well as stabilizes the head and neck. Helite air vests for equestrians stiffen the trunk to protect internal organs:

  • Lungs
  • Pancreas
  • Abdomen
  • Stomach
  • Liver

 

What Disciplines Do The Air Vests Work Best For?

You can wear your Helite Air Vest for any equestrian discipline. Most commonly they are worn in eventing, jumper, hunter, western and dressage. Helite offers two types of air vests for equestrians, both of which are adaptable for any discipline.

  • The Air Jacket: is primarily worn in cross-country and eventing. The adjustable straps allow room for clothing and a body protector.
  • The Zip'In Airbag: is designed for riders who want discreet protection. The airbag can be worn with an approved outer layer or on its on.
