Hit Air Vest Buckle Extender adds up to 7 inches (17.78 cm) to the chest belt of Hit-Air vests and up to 6.25 inches (15.875 cm) to the waist belt. This buckle extender works with the existing adjustments on the airbag vest to help the rider fit the vest over a required standard hard safety vest.
- Extends Hit Air buckles by 7 inches (chest) & 6.25 inches (waist)
- Not included with new Hit Air equestrian vest
Who Needs One?
Anyone with a larger frame OR whose standard safety vest is a bit bulky will require this buckle extender. This includes MOST men – including lean, 6’2″ guys that weigh 180 lbs.
MOST people who buy the Hit Air Equestrian Airbag Vest will fit in it just fine without the buckle extender. We would love for Hit Air to simply extend the buckles so this piece is not even needed! It’s one of those profit centers for the brand though. They are able to sell 90% of the vests without the extension, saving them money for production – which they actually do pass along to the customer (considering the cost of the Hit Air vest vs. the Point 2 vest).
