Why do I need snowboarding body armor?

You might not think you need snowboard body armor. Maybe you’re just learning to snowboard and know you won’t be doing any serious tricks for a while. Or maybe you’re confident in your snowboarding abilities and don’t worry about wiping out. No matter where you are on the snowboarding spectrum, snowboard 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). Good quality snowboarding 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 snowboard or practice new tricks
  • Can be worn under your existing jacket or hoodie
  • 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
