POC Spine VPD Vest Back Protector

Review top rated, POC Spine VPD Vest Back Protector. The VPD Vest gives you the greatest flexibility and freedom of movement with its spandex mesh material, removable and adjustable waist band, and cushioned VPD material. The VPD back protector outperform the EN 1621 2 standard Level 1 18kN reaching the higher Level 2 requirements 9kN.

SEPP: Super Expanded Polypropylene
EPP: Expanded Polypropylene
EPS: Expanded Polystyrene
The difference between the materials is that SEPP and EPP, unlike EPS do not deform permanently on impact and is therefore suitable to absorb repetitive shocks. Meaning, essentially that an EPS liner will break, distributing the force from the impact throughout the helmet. The EPP and SEPP are similar in that they will also break when the maximum force of impact occurs, but SEPP and EPP have higher stress limits when it comes to breakage and flex.

POC Spine VPD Vest Back Protector / AllSportProtection's Feature Reviews:

  • Added layer of high density Visco-Elastic Polymer Dough (VPD) in spinal area for maximum protection
  • Low density VPD for flexibility
  • Ventilation holes
  • Attachments for coccyx and cervical protectors (sold separately) for added protection of neck and spine
  • Removable 6 in. spandex waist band
  • Breathable spandex mesh fabric

POC Spine VPD Vest Back Protector / Bottom Line:

VPD is a soft and comfortable material but upon impact it stiffens to absorb the impact. This material is designed to absorb hard impacts and proportionately distribute the force of the impact throughout the vest.

So, if you want to be comfortable and safe the POC Spine VPD Vest is a great solution. Since the vest encompasses the wearer it provides rigid unmovable support that is also comfortable due to the deceptively soft VPD material.
