Snow.Guide reviews the Forcefield Mons Vest

22/01/2018 09:42:00

Below is a brilliant review of our Mons Vest by Snow.Guide. This back protector designed for snow sports scored a huge 9.5 out of 10.

'I have been wearing Forcefield back protectors for years, so I was eager to try out the new Forcefield Mons Vest.

I tested the Forcefield Mons Vest out on a short snowboarding trip to Tignes. The first thing I noticed was how lightweight this back protector is. And, because the back protector is incorporated into a vest, it was a snug fit without being uncomfortable. There is an optional waist fastener to make it a more snug fit, but I didn’t need it.

Forcefield have also managed to give the vest a low profile so fits nicely under a jacket and no one would even know that you are wearing a back protector. I was wearing the vest over my base layer and under my shirt, which fitted well. Although, the vest is still categorised as CE level 2 which is ideal for snowsports.

I also like the new styling from Forcefield. They have moved away from their signature light blue to a two tone combination with royal blue. This may only be a small detail, but one that I welcome.

The Forcefield Mons Vest was perfect for snowboarding as it was so light I completely forgot I was wearing one. I also had complete freedom of movement as the back protector didn’t restrict me at all.

Fortunately for me, I didn’t have any big wipe outs so didn’t get to test out the credentials of the back protector. It does have a high energy absorption so softening the blow for your back. If you do have a slam, the Mons Vest has repeat Performance Technology so it can be used again and again. Forcefield is a brand that protects some of the UK’s finest pros like Jamie Barrow. Considering that barrow is officially Britain’s fastest snowboarder, if it is good enough for him then it is good enough for me!

Another great feature of the Mons Vest is that it is machine washable. Simply remove the back protector from the inside and bung the vest in the wash. The material is also anti-bacterial so should last you a few days on the mountain before needing a wash.

The vest has a highly breathable fabric that utilises BeCool technology. This works like your very own climate control system for your skin, removing wet or hot air to regulate your body temperature.

If I was to spend time in the park hitting rails and getting big air, I would probably choose the Forcefield Ultra-Lite Back Protector. But for long days shredding the slopes, where comfort is needed with the protection, the Forcefield Mons Vest will be my choice for this season.'

Motorcycle Gear Hub gives Forcefield Action Shorts a 5/5

02/01/2018 16:13:00

Below is a review of our Action Shorts by Motorcycle Gear Hub. These armoured shorts scored 5/5 for Protection, Fitment, Design and Quality of Materials and 4/5 for Value for Money, achieving an overall Motorcycle Gear Hub rating of 5/5. Excerpts of the review are below, with the full review available on their website.

'The Best Armored Underwear for Riders: Forcefield Action Pro Shorts
I’ve always been sort of baffled as to how so many motorcycle pants nowadays lack any protection for the buttocks and thighs. Hip protection doesn’t fare any better either, and, many times, you will find leather and textile pants offering some measly foam at the hips or none at all. But, here’s the thing, hip fractures are very common in motorcycle crashes and they are a pain in the derriere (pun intended!) to deal with until they heal (if they do ever heal).

Basically, if you’re a motorcycle rider and you want to enjoy your future years as an independent pain-free senior citizen, it is thus your duty to take care of your hips and pelvis.

Enter the Forcefield Action Pro Armor Shorts
Stemming from the United Kingdom, Forcefield specializes in body armor for different recreational activities including motorcycling. I own several products of theirs already and I can attest to their emphasis on serious body protection and on advancing the field through innovation and pioneering. Essentially, Forcefield is among the very-few armor manufacturers that I’d trust my life with and that of my partner too.

I recently had a chance to grab a set of Forcefield’s epic Action Pro shorts for my girlfriend. I have other armored shorts, but none come close to the level of absolute protection yielded by these Action Pro armored shorts from Forcefield. After piling up the miles with my girlfriend riding with me as a passenger and her wearing these shorts, it is thus that I want to bring you a detailed review of the Forcefield Action Pro armored shorts. Let’s kick it!'

Motorcycle Gear Hub rating: 5/5
