There is one tipperary that is approved and I really like it. It's called the tipperary air esprit, its very easy on the budget, Its quite comfortable, it protects the back REALY well, its like a turtle shell, but its not to bulky. Its also easy on the wallet. I wouldnt recomend the origanal tipperary and defenatly not the tipperary ride light, people have told me they like theirs but when I try one those on I just think, THIS is supposed to protect my back, it has about as much protection as a clothing vest! Defanatly agree with the others about sitting in a saddle first, I have a long torsoe so catching on the saddle wasnt a big problem for me. I've heard tha you should pop over a jump to make sure it doest catch, cause somtimes just sitting wont but coming out of the 2 point might.
I hope this helps!
