Sorry to bring this back from the dead, but just started looking at spine protectors (actually wanted to find a neck brace, but not sure if the motocross ones will work with snowboard helmets)
I am a 34yr old looking to get into bigger jumps without ending up in a wheelchair

Allsports is having a sale on Demon stuff at the moment so i am looking to get one of the spine protectors through them. Trying to decide between these 3 but appreciate feedback if anyone has it:

DS 1650 Flex Force PRO Top, this is the cheapest, and its a full upper protector. Doesnt seem to go into detail about the back protection abilities though)

DS 1120 Shield spine guard, this is the one Sabatoa linked to above. Solid looking back protection

But then there's
Spine X D3O, this d3o protection seems to be a little more expensive. Is it as good in protecting the spine? Is it a hard shell?


Lastly, how would these tie in with a pair of azzpadz, and does anyone know if there are neck braces that are worthwhile?
