Yeah I wasn't too fond of he rodney Powell. Although better than Charles Owen. Not as good as airowear imo. I Am 90% sure it is a small. But if you are interested in the airowear I will look and let you know. I csn send you some more pictures too if Lu want. In case you don't have a tack store nearby hat sells it.

I'd love to see pictures, if it's not too much trouble? I'll be ordering online, & won't get a chance to try the vests on beforehand.

Thanks!
I just double-checked the measurements listed on Dover, & is says a size Small is meant to fit a 38-42" chest & a 32-36" waist. That's why I was surprised when you said your vest was a Small.

I found the Airowear in Navy (!!) from a UK site for $155.92 for the vest, $67 for the shoulder pads, & $48.36 for shipping ($271.28 total). Has anyone ever ordered stuff from the UK before? Would I have to pay import taxes, & if so, do you think I'd be better off just buying from an American retailer? It seems like such a good deal, I'm just afraid import fees would ruin that.

Q omg - to your story :( my heart goes out to you I am SO sorry!

As for vests - ty for this thread. I do a LOT of hunter paces and will apparently do a few fox hunts this year as well as eventing. I have the intec version of the tipperary which is very comfortable (and much MUCH better than my archaic flex rider circa 1995... ugh i'm old haha) but not certified. I've seen so many people on paces not wear vests that it just baffles me. I mean it's eventing - but longer and faster! Anyway... now i'm looking at better options bc while the vest I have is some protection if I am doing 10+ paces/hunts and 3+ events with at least 2 full schooling days... yeah i'm thinking I should get a better one. Gah!

Let me know how you like yours!

Just so you know, the Rodney Powell no longer comes in solid colors. The sides are black. (unless they changed it back) I ordered one last year and had to return it since the combo of mint green and black was so gross I couldn't look at it. I would have looked like an Andes Mint in the thing.

I'm getting an Airowear. Much more form fitting. Too bad they only come in black.
