THEDIRTYBUBBLEalot of people will tell you no, but mine does wonders for me. I never notice it either.
teflon66So people don't seem to like to?
If I were to actually fall hard on my back, will it help?
Mrossi99a big thing they do besides protect you is give you more confidence.
ParryWithAnAIts a good idea, and HH rocks them.
wrichmondMy back protector has done wonders. And not heavy. Definitely recommend.
Park_RangerDoes he really though? I know he is sponsored by them, but I really do wonder if he has that thing on every time he skis (not that you would be able to tell either way with the 5xl steeze). He certainly doesn't need a confidence boost and he has gotten by hitting 100 foot jumps and gnarly quad kink urban rails without it just fine.
teflon66Can someone recommend me some high quality vest-type padding? Seems like if I'm already getting a back protector why not protect the front.
.otto.theres a limit to how much protection dude.... by the way you heading you might as well be a knight in armor.. 90 % of the skiers out there arent wearing protector and they are doing fine.. a back protector is a good idea but its not like you also need front knee leg shoulder protector
InspiredMediayes he does. and he has for a long time! even before the new sponsorship. not getting a back injury is fun and so is skiing because of not having one :)
