Eventing Vests? Where to purchase?

I've heard lots of good things about the Rodney Powell vests, but I can't seem to find an American stockist...or any stockist for that matter. I saw that for a while the company was out of operation or something like that, so are these vests even still available? If so does anyone know where I might purchase one from?

Thanks!! and sorry if this is a dumb question

This is about all I could find:

Rodney Powell Body Armour Collections | EQUESTRIAN COLLECTIONS.COM

If you don't have any luck finding one, I suggest looking into Airowear. I love mine--breathable and comfortable.

Thanks for looking for me, but now that you mentioned it the airowear looks pretty similar. Do you mind me asking where you bought yours? Online or did you go to a saddlery? But thanks either way! This might be the perfect fit :)

I love my airowear outlyne vest. So comfy and you can get it in colors and for cheaper if you order it from the UK.

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

This is where I purchased my Airowear
Amira Equi Ltd.

It's cheaper than anywhere else I've found it (even after shipping costs), & you can get custom colours! I didn't customise mine, I just got it in Navy, but I really wish I had!

That's where I got mine too. They were very helpful, particularly with sizing.
