teflon66Do you think it's worth getting a back protector that has some chest protection too?
To be extra safe it's never a bad idea i know some people that wear football girdles under there snow pants for protection. If you're just starting out in the park or backcountry or just skiing in general even it might not be necessary because you probably aren't going crazy big, but if you want to go bigger or you are already a great skier then it's never a bad idea especially with flips and shit it's good to have extra padding on your chest as well as going fast and being near trees.
When i was a little bit younger i "volunteered" with my local patrol team for a little bit and i was surprised at there being more people who fell on a rail on their chest then i thought there would be, which is no fun. All in all though it comes down to what your ski style is and how much protection you feel comfortable with, but extra protection is never a bad idea.
And by the way just in case you think i'm some random n00b making shit up i'm not i just had to make this account because someone idk how or who or why someone would would want to but they got my account and changed everything my username doesn't even exist anymore :(
but yeah hope i helped.
