Body armor is a popular type of protective wear that is great for layering or even wearing alone while out on the ski slopes. These durable and flexible pieces of armor provide maximum efficiency and support while insulating the body for peak performance.
Many brands of body armor are meant to protect the back, spine, and belly, but can be constructed to protect the chest as well. Body armor is just that – a layer of extra defense and comfort to the body. The back padding helps protect skiers against any potential falls or dangerous climbing areas, where armor is more than needed.
The Spine VPD 2.0 Back is a great example of body armor that can offer flexibility as well as support. Not to mention that it moves with you, allowing you the full range of use of your body while the armor takes a supportive role. The padded parts of the armor absorb the brunt of any potential impact, making you feel as if you didn’t fall at all.
Body armor is more technologically advanced than snow jackets or vests, and is equipped with technological features that keep the body safe, dry, and high-functioning. Body armor doesn’t limit movement at all, and, in fact, it serves to enhance it in every way.
