This wiki has been updated 23 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Riding a motorcycle can be a dangerous pastime, and that's equally true on private tracks as it is on public roads. To help safeguard your body against injuries, it'd be wise to invest in one of these airbag vests. They aren't a free pass to ride recklessly, by any means, and you should always use them in conjunction with abundant caution and other safety gear, especially a high-quality helmet. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

November 30, 2018:

This category is pretty cleanly divided between airbag systems shaped like vests that sit on top of jackets and those that are installed in jackets themselves. Both warranted a place on our list, and the jacket models by Hit Air proved particularly effective and protective.
