I am looking for my first xc vest and I was wondering what the differance was between the Tipperary vest, and the Intec? If any? Which one would you perfer? Thanks!

The foam pieces are placed slightly differently, but to my eye they look about the same. I also noticed that right under the zipper the Intec just has a flap while the Tipperary has a thicker piece of foam that holds the vest out from your body a bit.

If you want custom colors you have to go with Tipperary, as far as I know Intec only comes in black. (Unless you want burgundy, in which case you're out of luck as Tipperary switched suppliers and now only has "wine" which is *red*.)
