A just in case item !

I have purchased this item as a "just in case", as on the 5th of March I suffered 4 fractured ribs, and trust me people you never want to fracture your ribs. The kit is well made and on riding back from Sportsbikeshop at Boston I was very taken aback at how many car drivers "may have thought" (on a BMW R1200RT 2012) I was a Police man / woman as they very kindly move over to the left to allow me to pass safely. Not cheap but just in case I am minded to think its worth every £.

An essential

I already have a Helite vest having been previously involved in a ribs and collarbone accident. It's slightly bulky, but worth it for the protection offered. My son also rides and this one is for him - I feel so much more confident about safety for both of us now. Neither of us would ride without one.

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.

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!
