Rodney Powell Eventing Vest

Does anyone have first hand experiance with it? I think I am going to get one from the reviews I have read, but want to know if anyone has first hand experiance with it. Rodney Powell Elite Series 6 Body Armour from SmartPak Equine
It isn't as expensive as I thought it was going to be, so I'm seriously considering it.

My trainer (a CCI**** eventer) swears by the Rodney Powell Vest. She had a Tipp for the longest time but you and I both know that Tipps do jack squat anymore. The RP has protected her from some pretty scary falls at Training/Prelim this winter. I have tried it on and it seems pretty comfortable, especially for the protection it provides.

Go to for more info on the line of vests and apparel.

You are so lucky you can afford it right now! I am saving up but I have to patch my tall boots first ^.^

I'm going to buy one if I ever figure out the sizing. Did you read those sizing instructions? They're a tad cryptic.

No, I won't tackle sizing until I acctually get to ordering the vest.

I REALLY need a new saddle, so I'm going to do that first, but I'm going to BEG my grandmother for an early Xmas preasent and just use my own money on the vest. I got paid for doing my barn work all summer plus alot of extra work so I saved up alot! So it would be a good investment?

EventerDrew-can you ask her if it gets hot while she is riding in it?

She has said that it is fairly breathable. Not as much as the Tipp but good enough =]

^well I wouldn't expect it to be as breathable as a tipp, it has holes in it! :P I tihnk I am going to invest in one for next season. I will be doing bigger stuff and have already gotten bruised up once and don't really want to do it again. I am going schooling this weekend, so that is going to be interesting. I'm going to be the only one on our team without a tipp, but I think that's a good thing!

You'll be the new trend setter in your area!

Yes, because riding is all about what others are wearing.

Ideally, I would be able to get one now... but between lessons, trying to salvage my 5 year old Ariat Crownes by patching them, and XC schoolings.... NO MONEY! Lol
