Since a recent injury I am looking for a new certified xc vest. I would like to hear other people's opinions on the different brands. Almost everyone I know have the uncertified Tipperary vest.
I am also looking at purchasing a hit air vest as well.
The two in one vest are not certified in Canada yet, which is why I am looking to buy separate. Posted via Mobile Device
I have ridden in both a Charles Owen and the cheapest Intec vest that they sell. I liked both. The CO in particular makes me feel like a tank. Eventually it softens once you're riding, but it is quite hard and stiff. I like that feel, if I ever come off in it I don't feel a thing. The Intec is about the same as the CO and cheaper, so that's a plus. I would recommend either, they're good quality and you can tell that they're safe.
