Scott’s ActiFit Back Protector is a low-profile, soft back protector that minimizes bulk while adding a lot of protection for skiers.
D3O is the name of the material Scott uses for padding in the ActiFit. It’s similar to others on the market in that it does a great job of absorbing the force of impact and spreading it out. The tapered back panel sits inside a mesh sleeve and includes creases at the bottom to allow it to mimic the natural motion of the back while still protecting the lower portion.
The vest is minimal, which is preferred on a piece like this. The two shoulder straps are adjustable and hold a removable sternum strap while a wide Velcro waistband helps hold the protector in place.
If you’re searching for a simple back protector, the ActiFit definitely is worth a look.
