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?

Strange 07-08-2011 10:24 PM

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.

MBP, do you know the place selling there? I'm still in thinking mode, but given I start little jumping I'd rather have one on. :)

Amira Equi Ltd. AiroWear - Ladies Outlyne Body Protector

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.

MyBoyPuck 07-10-2011 07:09 PM

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.
