Back Protector for Ski and Snowboard
Back protectors are becoming more and more popular to use. It is no longer used only by extreme skiers and snowboard riders. A back shield can protect you from serious back injuries if you fall hard or get bogged down. Back protectors are available in different variants, but a standard back protector is usually secured to your body with elastic shoulder straps. In addition, back protection vests or back protection jackets are further developed variants, that fits more tightly and comfortably to the body.
