I think that Woof Vest looks nice, comfortable and it does its' job - which is properly protect you, unlike Tips and other vets designed in the same manner.
It's not certified through ASTM, but it does meet BETA level 3 standards of safety. I'd wear that vest before I put a Tip on my body.
I say, if you like it and can afford it, go for it :) I have a Flex Rider and I guarantee you, it's not stiff like others think. I don't even know it is there when I wear it, and I love the fact that the body protector that is on my body, is certfieid and meets beta level 3 standards - the only vests that pass the tests, are the vests that are designed in this manner.
I would far rather have a vest that will do its' job that is "Stiff" while doing this dangerous sport - than a vest that "isn't stiff" that does not meet the protection requirements.
