Ovation Body Protector... I need info!
As the title says, I need info about the Ovation Body Protectors.
Does anyone have one of these? I need a new vest, one that is ASTM Certified/Approved and the Ovation is. I would ideally like a Rodney Powell but they are wayyyy out of my price range. I want to be safe for this season!
So, if anyone has any experience with these vests, PLEASE let me know!
i have no experience with them, but it looks like an attractive vest & its certified so both good things =]
i should get a new one too, ive had mine [a flexrider] for many years & had a lot of falls in it...
I don't but I'd love to hear the experience. All I tried felt like cardboards (flex rider, charles owen and whatever else is in stores around). Those really nice ones (Tipperary and Casel Ultra) were not certified. I wonder how this one feels.
^^ in my experience with xc vests they are never comfortable at first, but you get used to them.
you really just have to get used to them, after you've worn one a couple times you dont even notice it anymore & it doesnt affect your riding at all. i think it would be crazy to go out on xc with out a certified vest, i cant believe how many people [esp upper level riders] wear the tipperary vests.
Thanks for your input! I'm hoping that I can try a Rodney Powell on at Rolex this year but I would really like to not shell out a couple hundred dollars.
It really is all about getting used to a vest. Tipperarys are comfortable but are not certified and that makes me nervous. MANY ULR's still use Tipps and I wonder what goes through their mind. Advanced is the most dangerous level in eventing and they are using something that could possibly not protect them?! Weird.
I actually heard that Powell vest is extremely comfortable. I was trying to find it around to try, but noone seems to know about it. Let us know your experience if you'll be lucky to try it!
i guy at one of the places i ride has gone advanced a few times, i saw him school xc with no vest OR helmet....seriously scary
