FOMO began as a final year student project of Founder and Managing Director, Carmen Cummiskey whilst studying Sports Engineering at the University of Strathclyde.  Horse riding had been a large part of her life, having participated in a variety of disciplines over the years.  Having suffered a couple of serious falls, Carmen promised to wear a body protector to ensure she had maximum protection and to avoid any further injuries.  However, she felt it was uncomfortable to wear, too warm and restrictive and if anything, made her feel more unsafe. Air jackets had also become very popular at the time and her horse was extremely adverse to the sound of them engaging. A good decade on, with a lack of real sport-specific innovation, Carmen decided to design something to inspire rider confidence and ability in the saddle, and hence FOMO was born.

We are currently a small innovative team of 5 based in Glasgow’s East End.  Committed to designing and creating innovative products, we are always pushing ourselves to think outside the box to create exciting products for our customers and are proud to already be the winner of several awards.
