360° protection for the whole body: While skiing, cycling, on a motorbike, etc.
Not to be compared with conventional protective vests: The award-winning Ballistic Vest by professional outfitter Komperdell absorbs up to 97%(!) of the force impacting the body in a fall – and is surprisingly comfortable to wear. It offers protection over and beyond the minimum requirements for the strict certification standard (EN 1621-2). And, in addition to the back shield, there are protection zones incorporated into the sides and front areas. The result: The best possible all-round protection for the entire upper body, including kidneys, ribs and rib cage.
The dual layered high-tech foam returns to its original shape after a fall. No need to replace.
Unlike classic hard shells, which only absorb the impact at certain points, the dual-density foam distributes the force of impact uniformly over the entire surface.
Stretchy and breathable. For optimum freedom of movement and pleasant wearing comfort.
The protection vest can also be worn comfortably over your clothing. Perfect for slim jackets or tops. Ideal e.g. while cycling. The vest is snug-fitting – and should be worn close to the body. Due to the body’s heat, the dual-density foam nestles pleasantly. Built-in holes allow the air to circulate and prevent heat build-up. If desired, you can wear the reverse side of the vest. Whether in discreet black or with a visible protector as a coloured accent, the protective function is always guaranteed.

Outer fabric: 45% acrylic, 43% expanded polystyrene (EPS), 12% elastane. Lining: 86% polyester, 14% elastane.
Well exceeds the stringent requirements of EN 1621-2 certification standard.For level 2 (out of 2) high protection, the residual force on the body must not average more than 9 kilonewtons (kN) (equivalent to the bite force of a fully-grown alligator). And no single blow may exceed the value of 12kN. The back protector of the Ballistic Vest limits the residual force value to only 4.97kN.
