    Question: What it is the main difference between a hit-air vest for motorcycle and for equestrian sport?
    Answer: The airbag vest is exactly the same, the coiled wire is what it's different: the equestrian is shorter, and the motorcycle one is longer. If you practice both sports you should get an extra coiled wire.
    Question: Is there a hit-air "Lightning Star" model?
    Answer: The German hit-air site offers the MLV-YC under that name for marketing purposes.

    About the sizing label and sizing chart

    The sizing label at the top on the SV2 model says “Size Small” and right below that it says “JP XS-M” The “JP” means Japanese. This part of the size is for Japanese market.
    At the bottom it says “EU US 2XS-S”. This part of the sizing label is for European and United States market. “EU” is for Europe market and the “US” is for United States market.


    The sizing label at the top on the LV model says “Size Medium” and right below that it says “JP M-2XL” The “JP” means Japanese. This part of the size is for Japanese market.

    At the bottom it says “EU US S-XL”. This part of the sizing label is for European and United States market. “EU” is for Europe market and the “US” is for United States market.


    Think of the sizing at the top as the “category” of sizes so the “S” in SV2 would mean smaller category and the “L” in the LV model would mean larger category, in this case one size category larger than a small would be a Medium.


    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 either “XXS” to “S” for the SV2 and “S” to XL” for the LV 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.
