    Ride Safer Travel Vest Expiration?

    I have a RSTV manufactured 9/2010. Do these things expire? I realize they have made improvements but this thing is still in perfect condition. I'd like to pass on to a friend but need to know if it's safe to do so.

    According to their FAQS: The Vests that were manufactured between 2004 and September 2013 do not have an expiration date. However the Gen3 vests, manufactured after September 2013 have a 10 year usable life.

    And their rep is still testing the older vests every year. If they become unsafe a statement will be issued. If you have a no expiration vest do check it over carefully but if it's in great condition it's safe to keep using.
