    Expiration date of Rider Safe vest?

    Does anyone know how many years the Ridersafe vest is good for? DS doesn't meet the requirements, but I could use it for older kids.
    Thanks.

    Re: Expiration date of Rider Safe vest?

    As far as I've ever heard (From their Reps at Lifesavers), there is no expiration. I wouldn't use it if it were obviously showing signs of damage or wear, of course! (bent metal tabs or rips in the fabric or the tether was bent out, indicating it had been in a crash).

    Good. That means I can get it now and use it for other kids and not worry that DS can't use it yet. If getting 3 across in my car is too difficult today, I'll order one.
