The guy's not from an English speaking country, give him a break! Oh and by the way, you forgot to capitalize "English", and you didn't finish your sentence with a question mark.

I would get this ->

Spine VPD Vest - POC Sports - POC Sports

I have not tried it out but they are suppose to be the best in protection.

I apologize, if you have dificullty to understand me! I have poor English skills, especially grammar, but strong desire to figure out, that armor do I need.

oskar, POC looks great. Will look at their site tomorrov.

So hard to choose! I have read tons of reviews, looked at all top manufacturers sites and still not sure, what to buy. I think, that full body armor is not for active sports. So, for now my choice is:

back armor (Forcefield Pro Sub 4 Back Protector | Forcefield Body Armour and Climate Control) top rated back armor in the world

chest armor (Forcefield Race-Lite Chest Protector | Forcefield Body Armour and Climate Control) because it's designed to fit well with that back armor

elbow armor (Forcefield Limb Tube Elbow Armour | Forcefield Body Armour and Climate Control) not sure about this, maybe other manufacturers sell better hand armor...

knee armor (Forcefield Limb Tube Knee Armour | Forcefield Body Armour and Climate Control) not sure about this, maybe other manufacturers sell better leg armor...

If not Forcefield, probably I will buy Dainese armor. Their products looks like top quality, but I think little overpriced.

And don't know, if I need better shorts, because they are so expensive from those manufacturers like Forcefield (Forcefield Action Shorts | Forcefield Body Armour and Climate Control), Dainese or other top brands.

I didn't changed my mind on wrist protection. Flexmeter still nr.1 for me (Flexmeter Wrist Guards - Alps Gear)

If anyone use those products I listed above, please, write your opinion about them. Thanks!

No need for you to apologize. We all speak snowboarding.

Looking for snow,
Your typed English is just fine and if some people took the time to see your location: Lithuania it would explain any confusion.

Question:
With your injury do you need full body or are you just trying to protect the back???
I would think you could go with just a back protector and not worry about all the other gear. With that and your injury I would start with the heaviest protection to cover your spine if that is truly a major concern.

slyder, I want to protect myself as much, as possible, not only with back armor. I am a buttering/rail/kicker guy - always close to an accident, when learning new tricks. Untill now, I was wearing some very cheap elbow/knee/wrist guards combo for about ~10$ lol. I'm happy only with my helmet and maybe shorts. I want upgrade everything to a next level of quality.
