I KNOW the Tipperary vests aren't certified. Here are the reasons I'm still considering them, and I'd like you to tell me if I'm crazy or not:
-I want something comfy enough that I can wear it on most my rides, not just over cross country. I'm claustraphobic, so I don't think I can stand a boxy feeling vest all the time. I like the idea of Airowear, but...
-I'm poor. Tipperary's I can find used for fairly cheap.
-I only plan on doing lower-level eventing anyway (probably Training Level max)
So what do you think? I guess what I'm wanting to hear is "a Tipperary will be just fine! You will be protected enough for what you're doing!" However, I'll try to be a good girl and heed advice given to me
