    Good vest

    Posted by Jeffrey Miller on 8th Feb 2024

    The vest is well built and comfortable. The only thing i am not fond of is the buckles are plastic and I wish they were metal. I am curious on how well they would work as floatation if the biker ends up in water during a crash.

    This is my second vest. I had my first one for over 10 yrs. Deployed it 3 times at the track. Third time the crash at T- Hill east ripped into the air bladder but not before doing it's job. No upper body injuries.

    Turtle 2 Air Bag Vest - good purchase!

    Posted by Matt on 19th Jun 2023

    5 stars, so far... vest is comfortable and fits well. The real test is if it protects me in a crash, which I hope never to find out!

    I had a wonderful experience communicating with Michael Bower from Helite via email and video chat - he was helpful and answered all my questions. Despite numerous online options (no sales outlets near me), I happily purchased directly from Helite.

    Worked as expected

    Posted by Ben on 30th Oct 2022

    Had a lowside. My boots/pants were probably more important in this case, judging from the state of them afterwards, but the vest did deploy and may have prevented some bruising. When I first got it I was a bit concerned that it was a little too loose, however it firms up nicely when inflated.

    Excellent Quality

    Posted by Matthias on 29th Jul 2022

    The vest is higher quality than what I expected, it's really very nice!

    It's a bit heavier than what I hoped for and I could feel it on the shoulders after my first 6 hour ride with it, but other than that it's not noticeable while riding.

    I was worried it would cause wind drag at higher speeds, but it doesn't. It also doesn't cover up the shoulder vents on my leathers.

    It gives a good sense of additional security, not only the airbag but also the crazy yellow color that makes a noticeable difference at being seen.

    Great Moto Airbag

    Posted by Roberto Luis-Fuentes on 21st Jul 2022

    No complaints on this pricey purchase. All the materials are feel high quality and I feel this product would offer unrivaled protection in a crash. Would buy again hands down.

    Great Service

    Posted by Wayne Repich on 19th May 2022

    I recently bought the Turtle2 Hi-Viz vest. It's lighter than I thought and didn't restrict airflow/venting as much as I'd expected.

    Haven't had to use it yet, and hope not to, though feel good knowing it's there to supplement other safety gear.

    Customer Service is fantastic -- responsive, accommodating, and enjoyable to interact with. They seek to ensure that you're comfortable with sizing. I'm 5'7", 178lbs, 44 inch chest, and wear a large in other tops/jackets (size 54 Euro), and wear a large in this with no issues.

    Really good quality

    Posted by Joe on 4th Apr 2022

    Hoping never to have to try it, but it definitely feels more secure and well made than the amazon Chinese counterfeits

    Peace of Mind

    Posted by Tommy Bollhofer on 23rd Mar 2022

    I started commuting on my bike given the price of fuel these days. The high visibility certainly grabs the attention of other drivers on the road in all sorts of lighting conditions. It provides my family and I the peace of mind knowing that in combination with good gear, I exponentially increase odds of minimizing injury. It’s worth the investment.

    really good vest

    Posted by Indio Avila on 16th Mar 2022

    so far this vest has been a good investment thankfully i have not had the need to use it yet. But like they say you don't buy something like this hoping to use it. you buy it hoping you won't need to. still having to remember to clip on the tether.

    Awesome piece of gear. I forget it's on almost immediately. Easy to adjust tether. Perfect simple design with minimal failure points. I haven't dropped a bike in 15years so I'm long overdue and this provides a huge confidence boost that IF I go down I will give myself the best chance of avoiding injury.
