“I have been wearing the VIPA Vest for a number of years and tested it out with a heavy fall
recently, not only hitting the ground hard at speed, but also having the horse gallop on me.
The VIPA Vest did its job extremely well, I was able to walk away from the fall with severe
bruising only, it could have been much worse.”
