Components with great elasticity and adaptable shape for optimal adjustment
Average, by giving a priority to components that provide good protection.

I ordered the medium size being 5ft 6in with 38 inch chest. The jacket was rather tight on the chest. I used it with the DSH 100 Adult - Black M shorts for a snowboarding holiday. The website says they are designed to be worn together, however I found that the lower back protection of the jacket clashed with the coccyx protector of the shorts pushing the shorts down and the jacket up. I did have a small fall whist scooting my snowboard toward a chair lift, I fell over doing about walking pace and landed on my chest, the jacket offered very little protection, if any at all and I still damaged a rib (possible fracture). The pads in the chest protection rub your chest when sitting, getting up and lowering which you do a lot on a snowboard, it also chafed around the arm holes. The hook and loop fastening waste strap is a pain as it just stuck to the inside of my boarding pants. Overall I would not advise anyone to buy this product.
Thank you for this very detailed feedback. It's really helpful for us to better understand how our products work, or not, in combination with each other. I will pass it all along to our product engineers and designers for them to review. This will help them to keep improving the product development.
Have a nice day,
Affordable and practical. Giving comprehensive protection, chest, kidney as well as back protection. The only potential drawbacks is that it gives extra insulation due to being body hugging, resulting in perspiration when energetically skiing/snowboarding.
on se sent à l'aise
Bien que ce gilet remplisse sa fonction protectrice, il est désagréable à porter, il fait transpirer enormement. C est vraiment dommage.
dommage que le prix soit élevé même si la sécurité n'a pas de prix ...
Porté pendant toute ma semaine de ski, vraiment confortable et pas du tout gênant dans les mouvements !
Je suis super content avec votre produit il est super confortable ça garde bien le dos pour moi ce juste la taille de les élastique qu’il son grand
Bonne protection. Légère. Attention toutefois, ça taille un peu petit.
très content du produit, mais un peu cher
Confortable, aucune gêne pendant la pratique du ski.
un peu d'inconfort mais fait son usage
Ce gilet à la fois léger et confortable est néanmoins très rigide mais souple et n'entrave pas les mouvements spécifique au ski.
Ce gilet protège parfaitement le dos. Il tiens chaud. Seul defaut pour moi il manque une accroche au pantalon car le gilet remonte un peu lors de la journée de ski.
cool et protege bien

The EN1621-2 standard is a European standard applicable to protection systems for the back and the EN13277-5 is for the spleen when practicing downhill skiing or snowboarding. A feature of this standard are the tests undertaken to check the shock absorption properties and the resistance to penetration
To select the right size of protective vest, here is a size chart. Size M = person 5'5" to 5'8" tall. Size L = person from 5'9" ft to 6' tall Size XL = person from 6'1" to 6'5" tall.
The Defense Jacket is designed as part of the Defense short outfit so that these 2 protection systems can be perfectly combined and do not hinder each other.
