Helite Inflatable Air Vest - High Viz
January 31, 2018

Possible life saver

Vest appears to be well made and is easily adjustable - vest is XL, jacket XXL, although I am not too sure how long it will stay looking clean. Thankfully I cannot comment on its performance but am confident it would live up to its claims although I hope I never have to find out!

High quality vest

The vest is extremely well made and seems very durable. It's comfortable to wear over my other bike gear and has a back protector as well. It's quite a snug fit for me but can easily be adjusted. I haven't tested the inflation (and hope I don't have to honestly) but I'm certainly confident that this product will do its job if the time comes - and ultimately that's why anyone would buy it. The only negative I can find is that with one of my helmets with a more pronounced chin piece, the vest can slightly restrict my head turning - although I can probably adjust the vest to fix this.

Quality kit

I was impressed with the quality of material & construction. This is a solid piece of kit. It's unnoticeable when being worn & I don't think it looks ridiculous. My only criticism is that it doesn't have a loop to hang it from. It tends to slide off the jacket when hung up. I know putting it on a hanger is probably best but it's not handy. The lanyard to connect to the bike could maybe be better - I'm having to find ways of transferring between bikes.

Peace of mind

Very pleased I finally brought the vest. It is well made and comfortable. Sizing was a bit tricky as the sizing written inside the vests is different to the charts Helite supply for shops. I have an XL now which is great over an XXL jacket and waterproof. It hangs half way down my buttocks to protect my pelvis, with a fist gap between the vest and my chest, as described in the fitting instructions, as I interpret it. I am a bit worried the yellow hi viz will collect dirt quickly, I have tried baby wipes, but it is still dirty. I wonder if a black one with a cheap loose hi vis vest would be best. Big thumbs up to Sportsbikeshop for customer service. I hope to never need it, but....

Protective

Have yet to use the product so I can't comment on its performance, (thankfully). Seems to be of durable quality. Increased peace of mind led me to purchase, particularly with it being a vest that can be worn over different jackets at different times of the year. Happy with purchase.

An absolute for every biker

The High Viz is a must. Its not heavy very well made and durable. I hesitated for a good while because of the cost but so glad that I decided to purchase. Excellent invention.

Premium safety - at a price!

Premium quality construction that looks the part and allows you to remove any back protectors in your underneath jacket for extra air-flow and comfort. Easy to put on / take off and you soon remember to disconnect the lanyard clip from your bike too! Yes, it's relatively expensive, but you really do get what you pay for - and in this case it's well worth it! Great customer experience from Sportsbikeshop too - as always an added bonus!

Value for money

Looking at many of the options to buy I thought this was good. The quality is first class, sizing is a bit of a problem, knowing what it is going over, like jacket and thermals. Has good adjustment options with hidden straps. Not blown myself up yet!

About

First created to develop more safety in the light aircraft sector, Gerard rapidly understood the crucial need for more security in all types of applications. Now readily available in the motorcycle market, Helite products are used by all French emergency service bike riders and some counties within the UK.
