Vest: Beta 2000 vs Beta 3000
What is the difference?
I've tried CO Beta 2000 in Dover I really liked when I put it on. It's also $100 cheaper than Airowear. But Airowear is Beta 3000. So what is the difference?
Mind you I do little jumps and not gonna go very high, may be up to 3 ft max at some point (and I doubt I'll EVER do cross-country as I'm not brave enough for that :wink: ).
The Beta Levels mean the safety levels. Levels 1, 2, and 3. 3000 offer the highest level of protection, where 2 offers less and so on.
MIE, what do eventers prefer?
3000 is ideal. You want maximum protection, especially if you go out on cross country.
Says the person with a tipperary haha. But I also use my coach's AirVest when she doesn't need it. Those things are absolutely worth their weight in gold.
Thank you, Strange! :)
If you order to Airowear from UK, it's about $80 cheaper. They have pretty custom colors over there and they are soooo comfortable.

Here ya go. The vest is $195. It's another $30 or so to customize size and colors and about $40 to ship to the US.
Just a heads up though, that sometimes shipping takes longer than they say it will. Our barn manager ordered one and they said two weeks, but it took like 6 weeks.
Yeah, mine took 6 weeks and I ordered in the dead of winter. They told me 4 to 8 weeks, so it was within their predictions.
