Question - Given that Point Two Air Jackets are "safety items", is it acceptable to buy and sell them used?
I'm not an eventer and know next to nothing about the jackets (other than there seems to be frequent controversy on here). I'm just helping a friend sell a bunch of un-needed items, but don't want do something irresponsible/incorrect out of ignorance.
There appears to be an imminent change in the manufacture of the inflation/trigger mechanism, and from what I can see it's not exactly clear as to who would, in the future, be servicing the "old" vests. So if I was looking to buy a used one I'd be waiting for the dust to settle on that question. No point buying a vest that nobody can service or provide parts for.
"Helite" is the manufacturer of the PointTwo vests until PointTwo, "broke the contract." Christophe Thevenot was at Rocking Horse this weekend, and is nephew of the owner. They are now selling the original vest under the Helite name. Their retail pricing starts at $549.95 for black vest and $749.95 for colors. US phone is 352-209-2949. Tell Christophe that ."The Kurtz guy from Rocking Horse" gave you his info. Jeff
