I have the Tipperary Eventer vest and I love it ! It is very light feeling and I don't notice it while riding. It is much lighter than the Charles Owen vests. I have fallen it twice without any injury or getting the wind knocked out of me. I got mine from SmartPak. I would not suggest getting the off brand ones on eBay
that are cheaper. My friend got one but returned it because it was so flimsy and stiff. I love my vest and would recommend it to anyone!
