I just bought an Intec vest yesterday,
the one that is similar to the tipperary, but much, much
What is this vest suitable for?
Can I event in it and feel safe?
Was this a bad purchase?
I have one. I've gone XC schooling in it a few times but haven't taken it to an actual event yet. Haven't fallen off in it, either, so I can't really vouch for the protection factor, but for me, part of feeling safe is the ability to move and adjust in the saddle without being hindered, and sometimes it's easier to prevent a fall in the first place if you can do that. I do feel very comfortable in it. At BN I'm not going to be hitting high speeds and jumping vast heights, so take that into consideration.
I think it probably offers the same protection as the Tipperary vest, and neither one is "approved" but as of right now the requirements for vests aren't as stringent as the ones for helmets, anyway.
Yeah it is..... go to a foot locker or other similar shoe store, sometimes WalMart will have them too!! I found light blue glittery laces that are totally long enough at a Foot Locker, I think they were actually Air Jordan laces lol!
