I am thinking about buying it. I will start learning jibbing / terrain park activities this year, so I am wondering if this will help at all if I bust my butt during a jump or falling off a rail.

I would look for something with a spine guard/kidney protection. I've never hurt my chest, but I tried to do a rail slide on my back this one time ....... and I f*****D it up bad.

I've got a Fox Titan Suit I wear for DH MTB. It's similar to the 661, but it has full arm protection as well. The POC is what I think would be best, less bulky and more flexible than both the Fox and 661 I linked below. Some padded shorts for your ass and hips wouldn't be a pad idea either.

thanks for the links.

i have butt pads, i learned the hard way, when i started last season did not wear any padding and i fell so many times i ended up with a big bruise going from my thighs to my calves.

in your opinion, if i am just starting and going to take it easy at low speeds and not going too big (on rail / boxes / jumps), do i need to worry too much about protection other than helmet / butt pads?

Honestly I am not a great snow boarder by any means lol. I've only messed around on tiny boxes/rails and tiny little jumps, more like G-outs than jumps. I would say if you know how to fall, a helmet/spine guard and butt pants should cover you pretty well. Wrist guards would be the only other thing I could think of getting if you have a tendency to land on them.

The only reason I say spine guard is a must/definitely recommended is because I pinched nerves in my back in October last year, than again in January on that rail, than twice this summer on my bike the few times I didn't wear armor. It felt like broken ribs, and it's not fun. I'm planning on wearing my camelbak snow boarding this year for back protection, that thing has saved my back when I went over the bars countless times. I know it sounds dumb, but I swear it has, and I don't have to shove bottles into every pocket in my jacket and pants.

If you just know your limits, and when you can push them, you'll be fine.

The main points of contact when you fall are usually you hips, butt, tailbone, spine and kidneys. Along with your head, shoulders and knees of course. I've only hit my chest on a reeaaallly bad attempt at a rainbow bow. It's was really funny though.
