For European residents: Technically the RideSafer vest has not been certified for use in Europe.

We used to have an EU version that came with a booster seat but the manufacturer did not certify more recent models. According to the manufacturer, RideSafer cannot be certified in Europe under Regulation 44 any more because the EU is implementing a new regulation known as r129. Unfortunately, Regulation 129 is still a work-in-progress and does not yet contain the test procedures for Group 3 restraints (harness/booster). The manufacturer needs to wait until the category is described and test procedures are finalized.

For people traveling to Europe: This version of the vest cannot be sold in Europe but can be used (with or without the booster) in Europe as long as the stay in the country is not extended beyond 6-12 months (country dependent). See also… “What if I’m traveling internationally?” in the top FAQ section.


  1. Is there an update on this? I’m going to Ireland in a few weeks and want to know what my options are.

  2. Do I need to use the booster seat with the harness in Europe? Doesn’t mention vest or vest with booster

  3. Do you know the specific rules for Portugal? I know in general you can use the vest as long as your stay is not longer than 6-12 months but that this varies by country. Can you use the vest when traveling to Portugal and if so, for how long?
