The Demon Flex Force Pro V1 is probably the main product that has kept me skiing park past the age of 22. Designed from the ground up to be a base layer for skiers and snowboarders who are shredding the park, it works wonders. Its primary components consist of a moisture-wicking base layer with ABS impact plates located on the Shoulders, Elbows and a three piece plate down the spine. Additionally it features thinner plates covering the rib-cage and gel-like padding covering parts of the upper arm and collar-bones. It features adjustable two adjustment straps on each side (4 total) and monkey thumbs to keep the hard plates on the elbows in their correct location.
I absolutely love the feeling of security I have while wearing this (combined with padded hip shorts). Although it will not keep me from getting injured, it will greatly reduce the chances of me getting injured from the most common types of falls one takes while skiing the park. I have ridden wearing this set of armor for over 100 days on the mountain. It has saved me from countless injuries (primarily to the elbows and shoulders). I have fallen full force onto metal rails with my elbows and have not even felt it, a fall that could have potentially resulted a broken elbow. Additionally, the armor functions as one of the best base layers I have ever owned. It is extremely warm on even the coldest of days.
I have only two complains to level against Demons entry into the armor game. The first is that after around 100 days of constant ware on the mountain, the material had stretched slightly, shifting the shoulder pads lower than I wanted them. For me 100 days is just over a season, but most would likely not hit that number for several years. The second gripe is that on warmer days (40f+) it can be a little too warm. If your hitting a hike park, its not going to able to wick as fast as you will sweat.
Overall I cannot recommend this product more. I like it so much that when my first set wore out, I bought another of the exact same model. And that is the best recommendation you can get from someone.
