Inside A Bull Riding Vest 

First worn by bull riding and bronc riding superstar Cody Lambert in the early 1990’s, the protective vest now worn by many bull riders, bronc riders, clowns, and bull fighters is credited with saving countless men and women from serious injury in the rodeo arena. The protective vest offers protection from direct trauma (such as when a contestant is stomped on by a bull or bronc or hit with a horn) by absorbing shock and dissipating an otherwise crushing blow over a larger area.

Bull riding vests come in a wide variety of styles, but some things they have in common are an attractive outer covering like leather or Cordura (an extremely durable fabric that is resistant to abrasions, tears and scuffs), and a shock absorbing inner material. They are usually closed by a combination of zippers and Velcro, or just Velcro alone, and are designed to tear free if a bronc or bull should stick a hoof or horn inside of it. They are adjustable at the shoulders and often at the sides for a comfortable fit that won't restrict a competitor's movements. Many bull riding vests also include handy features such as pockets to hold a bull rider's mouth piece, tabs on the back for contestant numbers, and a modular construction to allow for fast, easy, and less expensive repair.

At the heart of the protective vest is its ability to absorb and dissipate the incredible direct trauma that can be inflicted by a bull or bronc. Once famous for containing Kevlar (a synthetic material developed by the DuPont Company in the 1960s), modern bull riding vests contain a new age of materials. Below is a brief description of common materials currently being used inside bull riding and other protective vests.
