I would love to get a baby blue vest, but I would hate to do it too because what if my colours change, Nelson retires I get a new horse...etc, etc....

I love my INTEC FlexRider Body Protector Jumping Safety VEST! I like that there are no side ties, the shoulder area has a super strong velcro so I can adjust longer and the front has a clip. I tucked my x-c map on the front part for my last show. I got the vest off ebay ... you can find some good deals. I feel super secure in it, doesn't slip at all and I am about a C cup so it holds the girls in place

here is the best pic taken yesterday when I started my 14 yo off the track 16h arab over fences just b/c I was little bored...

oh yes I forgot it was there when I rode my event and just stuck. I normally as you can see just wear a polo or exercise top / tank underneath b/c I get pretty warm, the band would rub or pinch my arms. I used to tuck my course maps in my boot but I like where I put it last event and perfect when out schooling so I can pull it out & review the sizes I just went over.

I am seriously looking into the airowear outlyne and found it on the UK website as well for basically 1/2 off Dover's price. I told my Mom that I should order it there because I can customize it and get it for way cheaper (using my own money). But she says I'm crazy to order overseas and that the taxes and shipping will be huge. Do you recall how much it cost you? I would definitely order on that site if I could, I mean it's MY money lol. But to persuade my mom to budge I'd like to hear your experience with ordering it. She also said shipping would take me weeks :( which I understand, but I feel like she might be exaggerating and that it'd be worth the wait.
Sorry it took me so long to respond. I think I paid about $220 for the vest and shipping was about $40. Wasn't really bad at all. It did take about 6 weeks from order time to receiving it, but that's with most custom orders regardless of country. I can't find the name of the company I ordered from. Something short and starts with an A. Lots of cool colors to choose from.

I found my invoice. I paid $155 for the vest, $46 for custom color and size, $43 to ship to Connecticut. $246 total. Well worth it in my opinion.
