POC VPD 2.0 Jacket Upper Body Armor

The POC VPD 2.0 Jacket Upper Body Armor is high-end armor for mountain and bmx bikers and skiers looking for maximum protection in a durable, low-profile, high-quality package. Let's start with the protective padding. POC's innovative VPD guards are soft, vented, and pliable, molding to your body for a barely-there feel. The pads harden upon impact and absorb the blow so you don't have to. The VPD elbow/forearm pads are each reinforced with heavy-duty, flexible Kevlar fabric. Embroidered POC logos add to the understated, classic look of the POC VPD 2.0 Jacket.

How does the POC VPD 2.0 Jacket Upper Body Armor work with a Leatt neck brace? 

Although the POC VPD 2.0 Jacket Upper Body Armor was not designed specifically to accommodate a neck brace via removable pads and straps, we found they fit together quite comfortably.  Check out our bicycle neck brace compatibility test for details and photos.

What are the differences between the POC VPD 2.0 Jacket Upper Body Armor, and the POC VPD 2.0 DH Jacket Upper Body Armor? 

The POC VPD 2.0 and it's cousin, the POC VPD 2.0 HD are remarkably similar. The difference can be found at the forearms. The POC VPD 2.0 DH Jacket adds a hard-shell elbow cap atop and stitched to the stretch-Kevlar VPD pad covering. Consequently, the embroidered POC logo on the forearm is a bit smaller.

Please Note: The POC VPD 2.0 Jacket Upper Body Armor does not have Velcro attachments for the POC cervical spine and coccyx protectors.

What is VPD? 

VPD (Visco-elastic Polymer Dough) is an advanced composite material that is remarkably flexible and pliable but stiffens instantly upon impact. VPD is highly dampening, absorbing an extreme amount of the energy from an impact. In fact, VPD is one of the few compounds on the market that meets the European Union’s highest standard for protective motorcycle clothing (CE 1621). The softness and pliability of the material allows it to mold to the contours of your body. VPD armor and pads are designed to be worn close to the body—the VPD is most flexible and pliable when it is warm. For this reason, POC recommends that you do not expose it to prolonged cold conditions, such as leaving it in a cold car or wearing it outside ski or snowboard clothes. Learn more about VPD on our Advanced Protective Materials page.

The Bottom Line on the POC VPD 2.0 Jacket Upper Body Armor:

POC did not cut corners when they constructed the POC VPD 2.0 Jacket Upper Body Armor. You won't be disappointed.

POC of Sweden

We can’t think of enough superlatives to describe the POC line of helmets and body armor. POC combines sophisticated engineering with spare Scandinavian styling to produce what are arguably some of the best-looking, high-tech protective gear on the planet. The company has won numerous international design awards. In terms of safety, one award in particular stands out. Volvo, possibly the most safety-conscious company in the world, awarded POC its Grand Prize in the category of Active Safety as part of their prestigious annual Volvo ISPO Sports Design Award competition. POC now has a partnership with Polygiene AB to include Polygiene odor control wipes in POC ski helmets, bike helmets, and body armor.
