    More ride time, less ER time.

    Downhill mountain biking can be super fun, what with all the high speeds and adrenaline pumping drops, but it also can be dangerous. The POC Spine VPD 2.0 increases your odds of getting back up after a gnarly crash for another run instead of being whisked off to the ER.

    POC's VPD armor has all the comfy qualities of soft and flexible armor with the strength of hard-shell. It's soft and flexible to move with you as you ride, and hardens instantly in the event of an impact for consistent protection across multiple hits.

    • Mesh fabric body
    • VPD 2.0 panels at back, chest, shoulder, elbows
    • Sleeve Crash Retention Strap
    • Removable waistband
    • Flexible hard shell cap over elbow VPD
    • Asymmetric chest zipper
    • Item #POC0179

    Multi-use Radness

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I gave this to my brother in law as a gift! this is what he had to say about it.

    "Great protection. Surprisingly, this jacket can be used in many different riding scenarios. The front and back protection plates are removable leaving you with just elbow and shoulder pads and this combo can actually be worn comfortably on many enduro trails without overheating. With all the padding in place, it is perfect for days riding lift access trails at resorts or even while riding a dirbike/dualsport motorcycle on trails or forest service roads. My only complaint is that the lower half of the jacket seems to ride up a bit and I am consistently pulling it down. The added protection and multiple applications of this jacket make it well worth the money in my opinion. "

    Safety third

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    If you say, "safety third." skip this item. But if you care about your ribs and want to bounce off some trees and still ride the next day, just get one. The price is a bit high, but the tech makes it worth every penny. You can literally move in this unlike rigid products.

    Life Saver

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This piece of gear from POC may be a little costly but is well worth it. You hardly notice that you have it on during a descent, however it is not necessarily the best for riding uphill.

    I wear mine for enduro racing, and while it probably makes you sweat a bit more on the uphill climbs, the added protection on the downhill is awesome. I took a spill in a race and took a bounce off a large boulder with my chest. The VPD padding worked great and I walked away from that with a bruise rather than something that could have been much worse.

    Can you please explain how it is related...

    Can you please explain how it is related to POC Spine Ergo Armor and do you need the latter when you use the jacket? or the jacket 'includes' everything spine protector has?
