SaferRider.com has introduced a new layer of safety for those who ride horses: a line of lightweight inflatable vests and jackets that use airbag technology. The gear contains a built-in airbag system, which using a key system that connects to the saddle, is designed to deploy in milliseconds—the moment the rider loses contact with the horse. According to manufacturers, the vest or jacket will create a protective bubble around vital organs. The gear can be reset and reused, and retails for $349.
