    Turtle 2 air vest

    Posted by DOUG A drews on 8th Nov 2021

    The vest is a great insurance policy. It is heavy but I can take the weight in return for the safety aspect. The staff at Helite Moto were kind enough to answer my questions about fit and direct me to the proper size and it fits great. Thanks for the personal “before”sales assistance. I will spread the word about the quality and safety point of view to all that ask. Thanks again for a great sales experience.

    Excellent build quality + Looks great

    Posted by Rainnel DSouza on 17th Sep 2021

    I wanted a high viz jacket but ended up splurging a bit more and getting a high viz airbag vest instead. I have to say I am surprised at how solid the construction and build quality is, and it looks amazing over my Revit Sand jacket. The tether will take some getting used to. My only complaint is they should include a spare CO2 cylinder with the jacket, and also maybe have instructions for how often (if ever) we should be doing a safety test with and inflate the jacket

    Its Great

    So far so good. Its as expected. I prefer riding at night most of the time so this is great. The lanyard is under my seat which took minutes to install. Hopefully I never have to use it.

    Helite Turtle II Hi-Viz Yellow Airbag Vest, Size Large

    Posted by Greg Schulte on 20th Aug 2021

    I really like design and ease of use of the product. The tether was very easy to install on my 2012 BMW 1200GS. It fits very comfortably over my existing riding jacket. There is a noticeable increase in the weight that I'm carrying on the shoulders but it's just something to get used to, in my judgement. Finally, my wife really likes the idea of me wearing the airbag vest. Bonus Husband Points!

    Seems well made and I like the simplicity of its design, tether is not a problem and as motorcycle commuter I’ll take all the safety I can get!

    The Hi-viz feature really helped in making me highly visible to motorists.

    The air-bag anchor line is easy to install to the bike. Just make sure you use a file to smoothen the metal edges so they don't cut into the fiber of the anchor line.
    Well thought product. Hope I'll never have to deploy it.

    Good value

    Posted by Arthur Yeo on 16th Jun 2021

    Considering the ease of use and the relevance to motorcycling, this is decent product.
    I have not had it deploy yet and I hope I never will.

    I feel safer!

    Posted by Darin Warren on 11th Jun 2021

    The vest seems very high quality. I trust this mechanical analog actual tethered system WAY more than an electric/wireless one. Giving it 4 stars for 2 reasons. I haven't crash-tested it, so I'm pretty sure it will do what it's supposed to do because of videos I've seen and am trusting it to. But also because of the sizing issues that I and others have. It's no fault of the employees you'll talk to when you call to order. They are victimized as much by the sizing system as the customers. I did finally get the proper size, but no thanks to the sizing charts online. Here's a video I made that may help you with your size:

    Great but a little heavy

    Posted by David Garcia on 13th May 2021

    It is looking great, great vision for others. I hope will work.
    The only cons is that it is a little heavy in weight, I will see how it's feel in a long ride and in summer time in South Florida.
