Wearing the Torso Armor Jacket by Swedish company POC will make you look like a Marvel comic hero--and for good reason. The support provided by this product may save a skier from being permanently paralyzed in the event of a bad fall. The white portion protects the spine from being snapped like a twig when someone rolls down a snowy mountainside. It isn't for everyone, but if you need something like it, contact POC to find out where you can buy one.
