    Loved it

    1st air bag investment. Made the right choice for this purchase. I prefer this compared to the electronic ones.

    Quality, peace of mind, & stylish

    Posted by Keith C. on 19th Jan 2023

    Arrived quickly. Well packaged. Less bulky than expected. Comfortable and doesn’t ride up on my neck. You forget it is on once riding. The vest provides me with an added sense of safety. And oddly, it doesn’t look uncool.

    I see very few compromises with this vest. My main concern is storage during the warmer months when I would want to take it off when walking around. The back protector is stiff and it is too long for my top or side cases.

    A no brainer for anyone who rides motorcycles

    Posted by Alex on 19th Jan 2023

    I get it, wearing gear sucks, especially in the summer. It’s hot and cumbersome. However, this product can very easily save your life. By inflating, it not only has the capability to absorb impact force (which is 50 times more effective than dispersion, which most standard back protectors and armors do) but most importantly, it immobilizes your helmet and prevents both whiplash and hangman’s fracture, the fracture of your neck vertebrae which is the single leading cause of motorcycle deaths. The tethered system has no battery to die or gyroscope to fail on you. Spend the $700 and wear it over your existing gear, and odds are, it will prevent you from having a VERY fucked up day.

    Well worth the money

    Posted by Spencer on 8th Aug 2022

    I love it. It fits well and does not constrict. The vest does block some airflow to the torso, so hot days are a little less comfortable. I will take the reduced airflow for the increased protection. I have been considering getting one for a few months. As soon as I heard about Youtuber Shadetree Surgeon's friend Abel sustaining compound fractures of his ribs after a tire blowout, I donated to his GoFundMe hospital bill, then ordered the Turtle 2 vest.

    Lowside-Tested, Worked Wonderfully

    Posted by JAMES AGUILA on 3rd Jun 2022

    Had my first real accident *ever* today, lowsided on a surface street at 30-40 mph, landed my right side before sliding out into the road & came to a stop along with my bike without colliding with anything.

    My tether was anchored beneath my seat with just enough slack to stand on the pegs if needed, so I think my vest inflated as I was going down or just before I hit the road. I barely felt anything in terms of impact with the road despite landing squarely on my right side. It also seemed to help stabilize my neck, because there wasn't a single scratch on my helmet, so it did an great job of minimizing whiplash in the neck region (and saved me the cost of replacing my helmet!). I did still manage to bruise my hip a bit, but the vest extends far enough that I think it helped with that too (along with my riding pants which have hip protectors).

    The vest also took most of the abrasion from sliding rather than my riding jacket (in the hip/torso area, anyway). I used to dislike how long the vest is, but after going down I'm happy that it extends so far. The vest material held up quite well, and while the Helite tag was slightly ripped off, the vest was only slightly worn (just ordered my replacement CO2 canisters).

    Overall, an easy 5-star rating from me. I credit this vest for making my first real crash pretty harmless overall, and reinforced my decision to wear it even for just going around town/surface streets. If anything, I'm MORE confident in the performance of this vest now. Great product!!

    Turtle 2 airbag vest

    Posted by Greg on 6th Oct 2021

    I am pleased with the vest. It is very comfortable to wear and is completely unnoticeable while on the bike. I like the fact that it has a small pocket on the front as well, I would like to see more reflective material on the front and a soft raised removable collar. Not the lightest bit of gear, but I feel it is a good bit of safety kit.

    Cooler looking than I thought

    Posted by Rob on 15th Jul 2021

    Like it alot. Does hinder my neck a bit with the helmet on, but its a small price to pay for the amount of added safety. Doesn't look dorky either like I thought it might.

    We are thrilled with our purchase. My husband uses his every day now and says he feels so much more safer on his bike. I also have a felling of security when he goes out on his bike now. I don't feel like he's such a sitting duck!

    Thank you

    High quality

    Posted by Herman on 12th May 2021

    I am impressed with the quality of the product, I am waiting on my motorcycle so I haven't attached it yet, but it fits comfortably, and as long as it works, I can easily see how it could save your life.

    Worry reduced

    Posted by Aimee Hackett on 4th May 2021

    We just received my husbands vest today and I am so pleased with it. He honestly thought it was a stupid idea until I had him try it on, we pulled the string to inflate the vest to make sure it fit him right and he knew how to re-attach a new cartridge if needed. Once the vest went off his whole attitude changed, he couldn’t wobble his head around and all his vital organs and his spine are cushioned. I believe his exact reaction was “woah, that was fast.” He went out for a ride tonight after attaching a new cartridge and wore the vest hooked up to his bike with no complaints or groans. This is his first bike, and I’ll admit I don’t love it, I think they are too dangerous, but this helps ease my mind a little. It may seem costly, but he can’t be replaced and I’d pay anything to know he has better chance of walking away from an accident if one occurred. I’d recommend.
