I recommend trying one on to know which size fits best around shoulders and neck and tailbone area as those aren't typical measurements given. That's not always possible though as I know around me no one sells the one I have. But no matter the brand vests are an awesome investment and worth every penny.

I'm actually considering selling my old Rodney that doesn't fit anymore. It's never been in a crash and has been used I'd guess about 100 times. If you're interested, you could pm me.

I would try one on before buying but there is no where near me that I could do that :( there's another girl at my barn whose vest fits me but its a different style and it's lace up on the sides, so idk how the sizing would be diffenent

Wow...does the Tipp not actually meet any safety standards? :/ I know a good number of people at my barn who would be ticked off to hear that...they're not cheap.

Yeap look them up. They market them like they are protective vests but they are technically only a cushioned riding vest. I am surprised they don't have to clearly put that on the vest but yea look into them. It's because they flex.

Tipperary is not certified and doesn't give a protection really. I'm always puzzled why they are so expensive.
