Ski Body Armor

Ski body armor: Because gravity always wins

Skiing is one of the most exhilarating sports around, but it does pose some dangers. Speed mixed with gravity can lead to some hard falls. Ski body armor or a spine protector for skiing can help prevent or minimize injury when you fall or crash. We carry a full line of body armor for skiing from leading brands like POC, Crash Pads, SiSixOne, and McDavid. Learn more about body armor for skiing below.

Why should I wear ski body armor? I’m not doing tricks

You don’t need to be a professional ski racer or a competitor in the winter X Games to need ski body armor. Wipe outs and collisions can happen to anyone at any time. No matter where you are on the skiing spectrum, ski body armor can protect your chest, back, and shoulders from hard hits on ice or packed snow (or any rocks or logs that might be under the snow) or from collisions with other skiers. Good quality skiing body armor:
  • Protects your spine, shoulders, arms, torso, and back
  • Reduces the force of impact during falls
  • Gives you body protection while you learn to ski or practice new tricks
  • Can be worn under your existing jacket
  • Comes in many different designs and styles to suit your needs
  • Adds another thin layer of insulation to keep you warm
  • Can give you the confidence to push your limits safely
