  • Great but not excellent

    These protectors are great and both our children love them. The modular construction offers a flexibility far better than our previous ones. That said, the OLDER one we have has a purple 'BETA 2009 Level 3' label ON THE OUTSIDE of the jacket. This is really important when competing as all tack checks involve a check that it meets this criteria. The newer one we just bought does not have the purple label on the outside but in amongst the internal labels is a black and white, fairly indistinct, label confirming it is Level 3 2009 compliant. This means that the protector has to be taken completely off for a tack checker to allow the rider on a course. A cheapskate oversight in my opinion.
    Flexible and Level 3 2009 compliant
    Level 3 label not in view when worn
  • Offers Good Protection but not enough flexiability

    Being kinda short (5ft2) I found the back to be way to long even in size small adult, as a result the body protector was uncomfortable to wear unless I lifted the 'tail flap' out the way. I also found it very ridged and stiff and found that it did not fit the contours of my body at all. Quality wise the product is well constructed and if your body suits this shape I imagine it would do very well for its intended use, however I think it would still be very rigid but some people like that in a body protector.
    Quality, style
    long back, ridgid

    I have tried on all the body protectors at my local tack shop and none of them fit! This one has velcro adjustment, rather than corset lacing, which allowed me to tighten it to my body. It both covers my ribcage and spine AND is almost small enough width-wise (other Racesafe protectors were too loose, and the kid's sizes were too short for my spine).

    Before riding in it, I wore it while watching tv on the couch to soften it up. It helped!

    It's my first back protector, and I don't forget about it when I ride. For comfort, I did select this model with the small foam panels (which move with you), rather than the single foam pad.

    The back bottom panel is very foldable and doesn't hit the back of my AP saddle during flatwork or jumping. I was worried about this, but it's great!
    I also like that in addition to velcro straps on the shoulders and sides, there is a zipper for easy removal.

    I chose this model because it complies with EN 13158 safety standard, which is required for competition in Ireland. I don't know why this model doesn't have the purple BETA 2009 badge on it, though. I have not yet competed in it to check this out.

    Overall, it is a great price and comparable in fit and comfort to Racesafe. It arrived to Ireland within 4 days in a nice small box. I definitely recommend it highly!
    Good price

    I have had a few of the solid body protectors and I don't feel comfortable in them. I cannot feel at ease with them. When I wear this I forget I have it on. My Daughter borrowed it and now has one of her own and she hates body protectors. Good value I always recommend them to friends
    Comfy good fit
    None I could find.
