The Point Two ProAir is a lightweight, durable air vest, for discipline, from hacking and schooling to eventing and polo. It inflates in the blink of an eye to protect the rider in the event of a fall. The ProAir comes with a pleated neck for optimal inflation time and protection from neck and collarbone injury. The adjustable straps ensure proper and comfortable fit and the extended shirt tail protects lower back, kidneys and coccyx.
How the Point Two Air Jacket (ProAir) works:
The air jacket is inflated by a canister of C02, stored on the front of the jacket. When the rider separates from the saddle, the canister is activated by the release of a lanyard that is clipped from the jacket onto an attachment on the saddle. The air bags will inflate within one tenth of a second — roughly equivalent to the blink of an eyeThe ProAir vest has been proved to work in three ways; to distribute pressure, absorb shock and support the spinal column in the event of a fall. When inflated, the airbag system offers the collar of the neck and trunk more support, thus reducing the risk of over bending the spinal column.
The ProAir will hold the rider tight for 15-20 seconds and then slowly deflate over two to three minutes. While the jacket is inflated, the rider will continue to have full movement of their waist, arms and legs, and partial movement of their head.

The safest way to wear the ProAir is in conjunction with a conventional body protector. Affiliated competitions — for example British Eventing horse trials — stipulate that a BETA-approved Level 3 body protector must be used.
The Point Two Air Jacket is fully reusable, and requires servicing annually or after every six falls.
All jackets come ready to use with bungee lanyard, saddle attachment and two canisters, one in the jacket and a spare. Every jacket is sold with a spare canister to give riders the opportunity to experience a test inflation of their new garment.
