Cords & straps
The saddle cords and connecting straps are essential components of the airbag vest. The saddle cord attaches to the two stirrup leathers on your saddle. The connecting strap is the link between the saddle cord and the cartridge. In the event of a fall, it is this strap that will disengage from the saddle cord and activate the cartridge to inflate your vest. You can also find all-in-one belts, depending on the brand, that combine the two at the same time... practical isn't it ?
