    Woah, like a complete costum? Do you have pictruesssss?

    And I agree with Kim(MIE), I would rather have a certified vest, that's why im in the market for one as of right now!

    I was supposed to order a Rodney Powell, but with my season starting in a month it wouldn't be here in time. SOOO, I picked up a Tipperary. I'll be ordering a RP later this year though, for next season, then I will use the Tipperary for schooling.

    ^ if you have one, I agree!

    I wish I had mine right now *crys*

    SOON though! So excited!

    My friends think I'm super weird. They love going shopping for human clothes but I freak out over tack shopping!

    I'm opposite. I have a very hard time buying clothes or things for me. I look at the price tag and think that is rediculously high - but when it comes to buying stuff for Nelson - it doesn't seem too expensive.

    Odd.

    I agree, which is why I got rid of my tipperary! Aerowears are certified beta level 3, just as safe as rodney powell, charles owen, etc, but alot more comfortable.

    Are Tipperary's not certified? Sheesh, if I knew that, I never would have got one!
    I got my blue childs one about three years ago and didn't really look into it. I started jumping and I needed a vest, and that was what everyone at pony club had, so I got it. Silly me.

    Nope, it was certifed awhile ago, but then they changed the rules. They are still usable in a comp, but the other vests protect more

    I think tipperary has one vest that is certified.

    The flexible ones with all the little squares are not ASTM certified, but they are beta level 1, when for xc your really want a level 3
