Protective vest - my experience

So... After trying different ones and researching I decided to order the one I've never seen/tried "in person": Browsing Store - Woof Ergo Zip Adult Body Protector (+ free shipping + additional 10% off). The reason behind I didn't like CO and Flex Rider I tried in local Dover, and Airowear is too pricey (yes, I know you can order it cheaper in UK, but I'm terribly bad on taking measurements, and it's too expensive to return it ).

I tried it on twice so far (as I rarely do some little jumping), but I was quite impressed with the comfort it offers (unlike some others I tried) and the fact you don't look like a box on legs. And it's Level 3 certified (the highest).

Here are some (not the greatest quality) pics...

Oh yay! I've actually been saving up cash for a vest. I'm glad you posted this. I am really unsure of what brand I want.
Aren't the WOOFs fairly new?

I've never heard of that brand either. Looks like a nice fitting vest. As long as your comfy in it, that's all that counts. I did that UK thing for the airowear. Yes, I did take my measurements about 17 times before finally calling someone at the UK store and asking for assistance! I agree, not being able to return is a big minus.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I think it's fairly new. Dover also sells it since quite recently and it's pricey there ($250 or $260). So Adam's definitely gives a good break on price. The reason I decided to go with it (besides the price ) I have Woof boots and like them over all other brands I tried. So I thought may be the vest is good too and if not they have good return policy anyway.
