Customer Reviews for Helite Turtle Shell Inflatable Air Vest - High Viz

Helite Turtle Shell Inflatable Air Vest - High Viz
May 29, 2018

Great product

Good quality materials and very well made. It feels a bit heavy to start with but I got used to it in no time. It has an integrated back protector so I don't have to wear my Forcefield under the jacket. So it actually makes it easier to move around on the bike.

Safety is not a dirty word

Build quality and construction both look and feel spot on. The vest does take a bit of getting used to however I'm confident given time clipping and un-clipping will become second nature.... Much to amusement of my buddy who sat back and watched me almost activate the vest after getting fuel. The vest provides a great option, wear it don't wear it. For me this type of affordable technology is the future of motorcycling safety. This is not Batman's cape so if you think it will make you a better rider it won't. In summary - although untested in anger the vest already feels like standard apparel.

Bright and comfy

On my first ride out, I found that the Velcro around the collar stuck to my helmet's lining (very frustrating and distracting). Having played with the alignment of the strips a little, I seem to have managed to cover it up enough that this is no longer a problem. I'm sure it'll return at some point though... Otherwise, it's comfy, bright, and I've already tried to get off the bike before detaching - luckily it needs more of a pull than that to go off!

Bright and comfortable

Very high vis. Comfortable and not restrictive. Easy to put on and connect. Thought it was a bit bulky and heavy at first but it's not noticeable on the bike. However it does fill a pannier if you can roll it up to fit.

Excellent piece of safety equipment

This is a big chunk of vest. Its heavy with a substantial back protector and certainly not something you can pack up in a pannier for a dark rainy day. Comfortable to wear with excellent reflective strips. No problem with sizing, I'm an XL in all other clothing and the XL vest was just about right. Apart from the price, the only drawback is the back of the vest is very long and the neck on the vest impinges on the back of the helmet restricting some movement. Definite recommendation.

About

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

  • Hi, I am wondering if the XLL jacket will be ok my measurements are all the XLL size except my height I am 171cm in height

    May 18, 2018

    Referring to Helite's size guide, if you measure between 170-185cm in height, you should opt for the Large Vest or Large-L Vest (The extra -L means the chest and waist measurements are approximately 10-15cm bigger than the standard size).

  • Hi, is this machine washable? My kit tends to get filthy whilst riding on the motorways in winter.

    January 2, 2018

    The Hi-viz yellow textile is very high-quality, so the colour is durable. However mosquitoes and grease need to be washed off, to keep a "new" yellow aspect. The airbag vest can be washed by hand without drowning the mechanical part of the system. We recommend that you energetically scrub with a brush in warm soapy water (no detergent, products may alter the fabric). Baby wipes are very effective. Do not rub hard on the retro-reflective grey parts. Washing machine and dryer are prohibited.

  • Can the protector be used more than once because you sell for the jacket Helite Replacement / Additional CO2 Canister?

    August 24, 2017

    Yes, after an activation the canister can be replaced and the Helite Turtle Shell air vest can be used again.
