Top 4 Safety Air Bag Vests For Kids

Horseback riding is a popular sport for many children, and safety is a top priority for parents and professionals alike, especially when kids are just learning to ride. 

Airbag safety vests have been very popular with adult and junior equestrians alike, but what about kids? We've put together a list of our top 4 picks for equestrian airbag safety vests that are kid-friendly. This information is based on fit, performance, manufacturer information, and sizing. Read on to see our top picks. 

 

1. Allshot Safekid

 This vest is the perfect airbag vest for children. It fits very small children to tween and was developed for a child's body. The design is kid-friendly with a combination one-piece lanyard & saddle strap. The rider simply needs to attach the strap to the snap ring on the key ball mechanism. This means fewer pieces to keep track of.

Additionally, a smaller cartridge for smaller kids, per manufacturer description, this airbag jacket can be used under jackets with 15% or more of elastane in the fabric of the coat. Check your child's coat to be sure it is compatible.

Does any vest have the cartridge on the left????
I hate dismounting with it on the right. Poor design choice for equestrians.
