The Point Two Air Jacket is the latest in rider protection. Acting as a wearable air bag, just simply attatch it to your saddle when you get on. If you are to leave the saddle, the airbag inflates within 0.1 of a second, giving you maximum protection before you hit the ground. The Jacket is reusable simply by switching the old gas cannister for a new one and resetting.

As well as the obvious protection from shock absorption, the jacket distributes pressure and above all, effectively supports the spinal column so that the neck and trunk have limited movement.

The Lanyard of the jacket connects with the nylon stirrup straps at the front of the saddle. After the rider has mounted the saddle, he or she clips the 2 ends together.

The Lanyard enables full movement in all directions for the rider. The airbag will only be activated if the rider is separated from the horse. The airbag jacket will then inflate within 0.1 seconds, protecting the all important areas of the body, the collar of the neck, ribs and coccyx.

The new system means that your jacket will be fully inflated after activation in 0.1 of a second, so should inflation begin from as little as 25cm from the ground your Point Two Air Jacket will be inflated before you impact the ground. The jacket is completely reusable by replacing the CO2 gas cartridge. The highly resistant polyester fabric Jacket or Gilet  can be brushed or sponged down to remove stains.

Point Two Air Jackets are designed for protection from shock absorption, whilst allowing the jacket to distribute pressure, which effectively makes the spine column rigid, so that the neck and trunk have limited movement.

For your protection, a simple “click” is all it takes to connect you to the saddle. If you are unseated or thrown from a horse the airbag system is designed to be effective in 0.1 seconds

The most commonly injured group are young, leisure riding female amateur riders with a vast majority (approx 70% of accidents) occuring out hacking and schooling, not in the competition ring.
