Frequently Asked Questions

It is important to choose the right size of your airbag for optimal protection. For this, we advise you follow our size chart. Hint: measuring your back is important and a good indication to finding the right size.

Yes this is possible thanks to the addition of the central zip. However, in the event of a fall the airbag may become damaged. We, therefor, recommend wearing it most of the time under an approved 3rd party outer to avoid this.

All replacement canisters can be purchased from our canisters section found in the main menu.

All replacement lanyards can be purchased from our lanyards section, found in Equestrian Lanyards in the main menu.

Yes, as long as the airbag is in good condition with no holes or tears. It’s easy to do, you can reset the system in under 2 minutes (with adult supervision), without sending your airbag system back to us. You simply need to replace the CO2 canister with a new one, available in our canisters section. Please read the manual and see the videos section on this page, showing how this is done.

  • Bus, train, car:

No constraint. For electronic models, remember to turn off the vest when you take this type of transport with your vest.


  • Plane :

You may encounter some difficulties with the security services regarding the CO2 canisters used to inflate the airbag. According to the regulations (IATA Regulations – see download), you are authorised to fly with 2 gas canisters (the volume must be less than 200cc), in the cabin or in the hold. Even if the regulations allow it, it is possible that the security service or the airline refuses to let you board with it. We strongly recommend that you print the “IATA Regulations” and show this document to the security service or the airline during the control if they ask for more explanations. In any case, it is the airport security service and the airline that will make the final decision whether or not to accept the airbag on board.

Often each airline will have their own advice pages online, it is worth printing these out also as supplementary documentation.
