Helite Zipin Air Vest

Helite Zipin Air Vest




*We do not ship airbags because of the CO2.

Helite's second generation Airbag Vest is a two-in-one vest that can be worn on its own or under a shell.  In general, airbag vests can reduce the chance of injury in the case of a fall from a horse.  Helite's vest inflates ultra fast (100 ms) and is said to provide some protection to bones and vital organs.   Unlike some other available technologies, Helite's vest extends to the neck and all the way down to the sacrum.


The latest airbag model can be worn on its own but Helite highly recommends the vest be paired with a Helite-approved shell to protect it from dirt, sun and damage.  (The vest is not washable). 


Both Helite and Dada sport manufacture suitable training vests as well as show coats. Other equestrian brands are also developing outer shells for this vest. 


The Airbag Vest comes with one canister of compressed air and additional canisters can be purchased.  Note: once an Airbag Zip In Vest inflates, it can be reused but the compressed air cartridge must be replaced.  Also note that canisters for this second generation of Airbag jackets are different than the canisters made for the first generation zip in.


Helite offers a four year warranty on the piece - once purchased, simply go to and register your individual unit.  An XXS fits a large child and comes with a different size air canister.


Airbag CE certified: Our airbag systems are CE certified by the ALIENOR CERTIFICATION laboratory, a recognized and independent institute that certifies Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for equestrian riders.

Warranty: Our airbag systems come with a 2 year warranty. Register your airbag to extend the limited 2 years warranty to 4 years warranty.


VEST are non returnable.
