The new Advantage model is a culmination of more than a decade of experience in airbag technology by MUGEN DENKO, LTD.
This "harness type" airbag employs the new higher speed key ball mechanism (component that activates the CO2 cartridge).
Versatile: for Eventing, Western and other equestrian disciplines, has optional chest padding, back padding, and side paddings.
NEW Top fast: 0.09 sec deployment time!
The attention to detail is unmatched by any other brand of airbag apparel.
The neck airbag , where most injuries occur, inflates first, followed by (in only fraction of a millisecond) the torso and hip airbag.
The neck airbag is also significantly larger than the leading competitor's neck air bag.
The key box where the CO2 cartridge is deployed is protected from dust and dirt
and provides sound insulation to minimize spooking the horse during an unintended deployment.
The vest is also more comfortable because the hip air bags are concealed inside a special pocket making it unnecessary to have a
long "duck tailed" style that can be uncomfortable in the saddle.
The Advantage is also more versatile because it has an additional optional CE back protector and waist side cushions.
The new Advantage™ is also cooler to wear because of the open design. With all of these advantages, it is also more
affordable costing hundreds of dollars less!

Check the measurements table at the bottom of the page and select your size, if you are not quite sure you can type your
measurements on the text box above (right of the main picture). If your height does not match your chest in the tables, you may need a
These vests are sold internationally so they include the sizes for each major market, the Japanese, European and USA market.
If you look only at the “EU US” size at the bottom of the tag and understand that the vests are adjustable over their respective range to fit a person whose height, chest size and waist size fall within the individual sizes of for example "XL" to "3XL" for the Advantage "Large" model it might make sense.
So ignore the two top sizes on the label and look only at the bottom size which is applicable to the USA market. As you know the Japanese are physically smaller in stature than both the Europeans and the Americans.
