Hit Air Vests are the latest development in protective wear for riders. The vest is designed with inflatable air bags around the back of the neck, the back, the hips, and sides around your ribs. The vest inflates when the ‘saddle strap’ that is clipped between the rider and the saddle detaches. The vest inflates outward so as not to restrict the riders breathing. It has two easy to use buckles at the front to open and close the vest and it has a pouch to the front that carries the air canister. The canisters for the vests are stocked with Berneys should you need a replacement.
