Woof body protector

I saw it in Dover catalog yesterday (wasn't there before and I believe not even on their website yet). And I'm wondering if anyone owns one or have seen/tried one.

It looks alot better than the old woof ones! The ones with the buckles. Those were just too stiff and bulky IMO. That one looks almost identical to the Airowear one made for women. Like exactly. I have the airowear and love it.

That was exactly my thought. :) And it's cheaper too.

Interesting! I never knew they had a vest out, it looks nice. I wonder why it is only BETA approved and not ASTM?

What is the difference?

I noticed it too while reading thru catalog. But then some other vests in catalog (I believe even CO one) state "BETA" but nothing about "ASTM".

ASTM is the American Society For Testing And Materials. They test the materials to ensure that they are reliable - or something like that. I don't know exactly what ASTM is or does, but that's my general idea.

And this is BETA:

BETA Safety - Body & Shoulder Protector Standard Explained

They are two seperate testing societies I believe.

The Rhodney Powell are BOTH ASTM approved and meet BETA Level 3 safety standards. Same with the Flex Rider. I am not sure about the Aerowear. The Inflatable vest also.

Tipperary - meets NEITHER ASTM or Beta levels of safety standards / approval.

Huh... Interesting! Thanks, MIE!

I'm pretty positive Aerowear has both. I going to ask in Dover next time I go there why just Beta for Woof.

^^ That's good to know equineeventer!

Yeah Kitten, see if Dover will know the answer as to why the Woof vest is only BETA approved and not ASTM. I am interested to know the answer.
