Tipperary Eventer Vest
 
I'm looking into getting one of these. I've seen numerous people wear them and they seem a heck of a lot better than the one I currently have (mine is kind of bulky)
I did read on DoverSaddlery.com that they are not an approved vest. Would that matter if all I'm doing is using it around the barn, trails and a possibly hunter pace?

Are they good vests, or should I get a different brand?

I believe they are approved... I'm pretty sure they are.

I love mine :) Very light, easy to move in

Sooo many people use these at USEA events there is no doubt in my mind that they are not approved...

Yes Tipperarys are now not cirtified. They are safe to wear around though, and the USEA have not baned them, I wear one. They are very nice vests and I would invest, but if you are planing on eventing, I would invest in a Charels owen or another vest that is cirtified by the BETA 2000 Level 3 standerds! :wink:

I have dreams of eventing, but in reality, I don't.

I do like how thin and lightweight they are.. i'm probably going to get one.

Thanks everyone!
