Description

The Original Treehouse Air Jacket by Helite uses the same Airbag and Multi-directional Trigger System as 30,000 Air Jackets already in use across the world. Helite are the Air Bag Technology experts and pride themselves on the research and development that goes into all of their products. 14 Nations were equipped with this system at the London 2012 Olympics.

  • All Helite Air Jackets have a Multi-directional Triggering System to ensure safe release of the rider in all situations.
  • Protection is given to the full length of the back and chest, as well as protection for the sides and back of the neck. This greatly reduces the risk of whiplash injuries and helps to prevent impact injuries.
  • The Air Jacket is designed to be worn in conjunction with a body protector when competing, but the jacket can also be worn by itself.
  • When not inflated the Air Jacket allows for full body movement. When inflated the jacket supports the spinal column to prevent over flexion of the spine.
  • All Air Jackets will arrive ready to use, each one is supplied with a gas canister installed and a lanyard to connect the rider to the saddle (an extra canister is supplied free of charge).
  • N.B. If you have not experienced the Air Jacket inflate, we advise to do a trial inflation before wearing it on a horse, this is why we supply an extra canister.
  • The lanyard is a fixed length with a clip to attach to the ring on the saddle straps. The saddle strap attaches to the stirrup bars on the saddle and is included with the Air Jacket.
  • When used with a BETA approved Level 3 body protector the Air Jacket improves protection to the spine by up to 69%. It also provides approximately 45% more protection for the lower spine than a BETA level 3 body protector alone. The Air Jacket worn with or without a Body Protector, reduced the risk of rib fractures and underlying organ damage, by as much as 20%.
  • The Helite Trigger system uses a screw in canister - this is a proven and safe system. The canister must be screwed in tightly; under no circumstances should screw thread be visible.
  • The wearer of the Adult Air Jacket must weigh at least 6 stone in weight to ensure the trigger system is activated in the event of a fall.

*Please note: Size XL is available to order in Coloured Air Jackets but please allow 5-6 weeks for your Air Jacket to arrive as these are made to order.

 

Size Guide/Fitting Instructions

Fitting Instructions

  •  The size of an Air Jacket is based on its length, i.e. the length of spine it will protect.
  • The Air Jacket should reach half way down the buttocks when deflated, this is to ensure it will cover the pelvis sufficiently when inflated.
  • It is important that there is enough room between the Air Jacket and the wearer for the Air Jacket to inflate without excessive restriction. We advise that the width of an average fist should fit between the Air Jacket and the wearer, or between the Air Jacket and Body Protector if one is being worn.
  • The Velcro straps should be adjusted accordingly, you may need to alter the it of their Air Jacket if you intend to wear it with and without a Body Protector.Cross Country number bibs should not be worn tightly with an Air Jacket.
  • Adult and Large Child size Air Jackets should not be worn by anybody weighing less than 6 stone*.
  •  Childs Small and Medium Air Jackets should not be worn by a child weighing less than 4 stone*. * These weights correspond to the force required to activate the trigger system and should not be ignored.
