Which riding safety vest should i get? Help.

I am look at these two riding vests but I don't know what one is the best. I am starting eventing this summer so I need something safe. What one do you think is the best?

Go to a well stocked shop and try on all the body protectors/safety vests that meet your requirements. Sit on a saddle to check fit of length,particularly at the back.

Then once you have chosen one, you can hunt for the best price on the net

Well Tipperay's are not certified. So I personally would never spend the money on something that can't even meet safety standards.

I own the intec flex rider and love it. Feels bulky at first but after a bit you don't notice it. Saved me more than once, and one fall was pretty severe.

My computer wont let me open the links but if it is the Tipperary I think it is, it is not certified. They do have one that meets some safety standards but its not an eventing vest. I have tried the intec, not a fan at all. I found it very hard to move in.

I personally love the Rodney Powell vests. They are comfortable, certified and easy to move in. Rodney Powell Elite Body Protector - Protective Vests from SmartPak Equine I have The Pro Elite Rodney Powell 'The Pro' Elite Body Armour - Protective Vests from SmartPak Equine
