    The new Advantage™ model is a culmination of more than a decade of experience in airbag technology by MUGEN DENKO, LTD.

    This "harness type" airbag employs the new higher speed key ball mechanism (component that activates the CO2 cartridge).
  • Versatile: for Eventing, Western and other equestrian disciplines, has optional chest padding, back padding, and side paddings.
  • NEW Top fast: 0.09 sec deployment time!

    Read an Independent Laboratory testing -the prestigious JARI (Japanese Automobile Research Institute)- Page 10, comparison speed for different models, the Advantage Model (called H-Model) has been tested at 90 msec or 0.09 sec deployment speed.

  • The attention to detail is unmatched by any other brand of airbag apparel.
  • The neck airbag , where most injuries occur, inflates first, followed by (in only fraction of a millisecond) the torso and hip airbag. The neck airbag is also significantly larger than the leading competitor's neck air bag.
  • The key box where the CO2 cartridge is deployed is protected from dust and dirt and provides sound insulation to minimize spooking the horse during an unintended deployment.
  • The vest is also more comfortable because the hip air bags are concealed inside a special pocket making it unnecessary to have a long "duck tailed" style that can be uncomfortable in the saddle.
  • The Advantage™ is also more versatile because it has an additional optional CE back protector and waist side cushions.
  • The new Advantage™ is also cooler to wear because of the open design. With all of these advantages, it is also more affordable costing hundreds of dollars less!


  • The Advantage™ MD "Multi-discipline model with zipper is the newest Advantage™ model that can be used with both Western and English saddles.
    Articles of clothing and belts have been known to become snagged by the horns of Western saddles. The Advantage™ MD with zipper rather than belt buckles was designed prevent or make this unlikely to occur. This MD Advantage™ model also has a sleek new look that is very attractive and retains all of the other great features of the standard Advantage™ model.
    Available only in black, colors available soon.


  • An important note about the sizes and cartridges: the sizes are adjustable within a "range".
    Small range: From 2XS to Small - Uses 50cc
    Medium range: From Small to XLarge - Uses 50cc
    Large range: From XLarge to 3XLarge - Uses 60cc
    Extra range: From 3XLarge to 5XLarge - uses 60cc (only colors available in this size: Black and Red)


  • Check the measurements table at the bottom of the page and select your size, if you are not quite sure you can type your measurements on the text box above (right of the main picture). If your height does not match your chest in the tables, you may need a Buckle Extender.

    About the sizing label and sizing chart

    These vests are sold internationally so they include the sizes for each major market, the Japanese, European and USA market.


    If you look only at the "EU US" size at the bottom of the tag and understand that the vests are adjustable over their respective range to fit a person whose height, chest size and waist size fall within the individual sizes of  for example "XL" to "3XL" for the Advantage "Large" model it might make sense.


    So ignore the two top sizes on the label and look only at the bottom size which is applicable to the USA market. As you know the Japanese are physically smaller in stature than both the Europeans and the Americans.
