Alpinstore makes every effort to ensure your safety on and off-piste. Indeed, we have chosen to present you with protection, whether in vest or not, for optimal safety. Going down the slopes is good, but going down protected is better! To find out more about back protection, read the next lines ...
Back protection known as "a back protector" is becoming more and more common, especially in children. You know that little bits don't pay attention to their movements and are fans of speed. You're in the distance and you see him pirouetting around the track? Will he come out unscathed from that fall? That's the question.
To avoid having sweat drops on the track, opt for back protection. This accessory is just as effective for adults as it is for children and is safe while being as discreet as possible. In fact, it can be worn under a jacket or undershirt, to be properly placed against the back.
This protection is translated by a vest padded in the most fragile places. It is easy to put on, like a vest, and closes quickly. The position of this protection is therefore optimal since nothing will be able to go up or down on your back.
Note that long-sleeved protective jackets such as the model VPD Air Comp jacket by Poc for example, provides full protection. Not only the back, but also the arms are protected from any impact.
This protection is translated by protective plates held against your back, by a system of straps that meet at the bottom of your belly and/or straps. This system is very simple to use since it is the same as a waist belt, from a backpack for example.
Once the model has been selected, with or without a jacket, it is a question of choosing the size of the back. This criterion is not complicated! For optimal comfort, the protection must not be too long. Ideally, it should stop at the bottom of your neck (at shoulder level) to avoid any injury to the cervical vertebrae in the event of a fall and should extend down to your maximum coccyx. You can complete your protection to the maximum with wrist and arm protectors to ski safely.
