    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

    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.

    It's what you want it to be

    Posted by Andrew Thornton on 4th May 2021

    This is a great vest. I'm a medium in jacket size and I bought a medium sized vest, which easily fits over my jacket, and barely feels like there is anything there. I like the look of it, and the high viz aspect, even though I got the black variant. I hope I don't have to use it, but I am glad it's there in case I do.

    Looks Sturdy

    Posted by Giuseppe Ciaravino on 14th Apr 2021

    Easy to set up the tether on my Ducati Monster. The vest itself is comfortable and pretty low profile. Material is quite sturdy, Hope not to test it, Looking forward to the electronic version.

    Helite vest

    Posted by Jack on 13th Apr 2021

    Fortunately, I cannot review the effectiveness of this device. Hopefully, I’ll never be in that position. I can say that the quality looks and feels good and that it is surprisingly comfortable—more so because it allows me to remove the back armor from my jacket. The fit is a bit snug but it may be that I am in denial about moving on from size medium.
