I used to be very cautious when I'm riding especially in the glades or just going off jumps. But now that I have my spine guard I'm alot more confident when I'm riding.
This spine guard is sweet. It's low-pro so it doesn't look like you have it on, kinda acts as an insulator for warmth, and lightweight. There's also a little clip for the shoulder straps to keep them in place so they don't slide off while riding.
I'm about 6'1 so I wear the Large and it falls to my tailbone. Can't beat that price for safety!
