I'm thinking about purchasing one to upgrade my protection.  Anyone have experience?

Thanks,

Vinnie

I have a hit-air vest.  Love it. I think it flows air better then the Helite vest.

 I just got a Turtle Hi-Vis vest about a month ago.   

   Only took about 3 days to get used to having it on .

 Hope I never need it........

I have the same, friend has the turtle one. I like the Hit-Air because it flows air through it a lot better than the turtle.

On the Hit-Air, be sure to unlock the red plastic locking ring right below the CO2 canister. Otherwise it will not inflate. I read on another place the guys Hit Air never inflated and its either he did not know about the locking ring or his tether was at fault?
