Salomon Flexcell Women
From the Editors of Freeskier:
For the women that like to shred with protection, Salomon has got you covered. The Flexcell Women is a dual-density, soft spine protector designed with a woman’s body in mind.
Flexcell, is a soft elastomer foam that stiffens upon impact to evenly absorb and diffuse force across a large area. When Flexcell is worn on the back, the foam adheres to the shape of the body, extending down to the tailbone, while small holes allow for breathability. The padding lives inside a zippered compartment on the fabric vest and can be removed for washing.
The vest itself is made of stretchy and durable mesh fabric with foam channeling down the back to help with breathability and a fleece collar for a comfortable fit. Salomon’s Perfect Fit consists of a soft link across the chest as well as the adjustable waist band.
The Flexcell Women is a practical and comfortable option for women who want some protection on the hill.The Pros: breathable, comfortable
The Cons: Zipper for inserting/removing padding is a little small
