Airshell Jackets by Helite

The Equestrian Airshell Range by Helite combines safety, comfort and style. The technical ‘Tekseries’ fabric is windproof, shower-proof and the stretch allows for outward expansion. The gilet is frequently used as a comfortable option for children, for breaking in young horses, out hunting or hacking and just generally a great option for ‘every-day’ use. The Gilet has been approved by British Dressage and British Showjumping for use in the ring as well as by British Eventing for use in the showjumping and dressage phases of competition. The gilet is approved for use only when worn over your standard show jacket.


Airbag System

The Gilet comes with integrated Helite Zip'In Airbag. You can pull this vest out of the box and use it. But we also sell the Airshell jackets alone so you can swap the look of your airbag system. The Helite Gilet Equestrian Airbag uses the same airbag and multi-directional trigger system as over 80,000 air jackets already in use across the world.


More Information to the Helite Zip'In system Here.




The very light technical fabric 'Tekseries' has stretch fabric wich allows tight fitting

while providing unrestricted movement.

This material is also:


  • Windproof
  • Waterproof
  • Breathable
  • Insulated



CO2 Cartridge

The size of the CO2 canister is proportional to the size of the airbag. The canister is the only component

that needs to be replaced after inflation of your air vest.

An additional protective PVC Plate and foam is placed

behind the canister so that it cannot injure the rider.



Fitting Instructions

The Gilet vest should fit exactly the same as any other Airshell as the product is designed to expand outwards on activation.

You may consider upsizing this product by one size as we find the French sizing to come up a little smaller than we are used to here in Australia.

The jacket can be adjusted accordingly using the various velcro straps.



Every Gilet Airbag Vest comes with a canister and lanyard attached – extra lanyards, canisters or interchangeable jacket outers can bought separately.
