    Buy it, back injuries suck!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Hey all, I bought this back protector after injuring my back snowboarding two months ago, and finally was able to get back on the board this week. After some research and calling a bunch of shops within 3 hours I was finally able to see this one and the POC protector side by side and ultimately went with this one because it was much thinner and more comfortable. Since I wear a backpack while snowboarding I knew I would never wear the much bulkier back protector. Another selling point between this one and others is unlike the US (from what I could tell) Europe actually has safety standards on these items that both Sweet and Poc meet. I now wear this while on my motorcycle and intend to mountain bike with it as well.
    I would recommend it for sure! Hope this helps.

    Thanks for your review. Would you please tell whether the protector is long enough to cover your coccyx when you are in standing position? I have an injured lower back and tried Demon Vest and it doesn't do the job at all. When I'm in attacking position on MTB it slides up so the lower back stays uncovered. Wonder if this protector solves such problem.

    Comfortable!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I am an Intermediate skier and stay on piste. I wanted to get some added protection and was concerned that a back protector would be annoying and uncomfortable. After wearing this on two ski trips, I can say with confidence that this is comfortable and it helps keep warmth in (bonus!). I don't even notice that it's on.

    I haven't tried any other brands though.
