Customer Reviews for Helite Inflatable Air Vest - High Viz

Helite Inflatable Air Vest - High Viz
March 21, 2019

Safety first

I bought this after having a t-bone collision in which I broke my clavicle etc. - typical m/c accident injuries. I saw this demonstrated at the bike show and am convinced that it would have reduced my injuries significantly. So both I and my son have bought one as a 'must' for m/c safety. Well made, comfortable and not as cumbersome as you might think. SBS delivered promptly as usual. Very strongly recommended, whether you can afford it or not - what price safety?

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.

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
Helite

Helite was founded in 2001 by Gerard Thevenot, one of the French pioneer and entrepreneurs in the light aircraft industry. His thirst for invention and conscience for safety has pushed him into creating Helite. 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.

Questions and Answers

Questions and Answers

  • Could you tell me the difference between this and the Helite turtle please? Thanks!

    April 19, 2019

    The Turtle is a 2015 airbag innovation from Helite. Helite relocated the back protector on top of the airbag versus underneath like the Airnest system is. This creates a "helmet shell" effect and proves to protect the back area much more efficiently, especially small intruding objects. The AIRNEST is the predecessor, easier to wear over a racing-hump it is still the first choice for riders that ride both on the road and on the track.

  • Is it Helite Turtle vest?

    April 8, 2019

    It is not, the Helite Turtle Shell Vest is listed separately.

  • Hi, can I wear the vest in rain?

    August 27, 2018
