Back Protection for Skiers: Women's Demon Flexforce X D3O

Women's Demon Flexforce X D3O.

If you're into the Mad Max look, Demon released a version of the Flexforce X D3O with a cut especially for women. It’s meant to be worn as a mid-layer between a T-shirt and a coat, and features shoulder and elbow pads made from their specially engineered D30 shock absorption material. The removable impact protection pieces in the ribs and spine are made from conventional foam, and are somewhat more bulky. ($150)
