Accidents can and do happen to even the most accomplished riders. It is advisable to provide yourself with the best possible protection from injury. Why expose yourself to a greater risk than is necessary? Body protectors can’t offer complete protection from injury but they will reduce the severity of an impact. A protector could prove to be the difference between a few bruises and a life changing event.
Equestrian body protectors are vest-like garments which contain foam and which are worn over your clothes and either under or over your riding jacket. They provide protection for the chest and back in the event of a fall or a kick from a horse. You may not like the idea of wearing a bulky additional layer but the protectors will soon mould to your body and are designed to afford the freedom of movement that you need.
At Equi Supermarket we are pleased to offer you the outstanding body protectors from Airowear. The Outlyne body protectors for adults and children are available in a variety of sizes and lengths to ensure that you can achieve the perfect fit. They are a zipped jacket style which can be adjusted at the waist and shoulders. Tailored to provide an elegant silhouette, Outlyne body protectors feature UltraFlex™ technology.
Multiple layers of shock absorbing materials distribute the forces of an impact to reduce the chances of an injury. Airflow technologies within the foams generate movement of the air for greater comfort and also lower the weight of the protector. The structure of the foams means that the protector moulds quickly to your shape and that it does not rely on body heat to soften.
Airowear Outlyne styles conform to European Standard EN13158:2009 and offer level 3 protection. This means that they are suitable for normal horse riding, competition and working with horses. They are capable of preventing bruising which would lead to pain and stiffness and can help to prevent soft tissue injuries and rib fractures. Whilst no body protector can prevent all serious injuries you could significantly improve your chances of remaining safe by wearing one.
Airowear body protectors exceed the requirements of the European safety standards and provide a superior fit. Airowear are continually researching new and innovative methods which can be employed to enhance rider safety.
