Do you usually suffer with back pain or want to keep your back protected at all times when skiing or boarding, this backpack has everything you need and more, the removable protector will protect you against slow or fast heavy impacts making it multi impact compliant.
Characteristics of the SAS-TEC Back Protector
Viscoelastic foam with memory effect - After an impact or any kind of deformation the foam protector returns to its original shape within seconds.
Multi impact compliant - Unlike many other dampening materials such as styrofoam (EPS), silicone or foam of inferior quality, The PU-foam is multi impact compliant. Lightweight - High absorbability despite low density. Hard shell protectors or materials containing silicone are considerably more heavy which reduces the wearing comfort.
Adaptive absorption - The protector remains soft in case of slow impacts however when it comes to a fast heavy impact the resistance of the foam grows with increasing speed. The damping happens by air-changing in the foam-bubbles.
In impulse responding behaviour - SAS-TEC foam reacts promptly without any time delay even to minor impacts.
Environmental compatibility - The raw materials of the SAS-TEC foam production are partly made of renewable materials. It is therefore possible to dispose of the protectors with the regular household garbage.
Long product life - Some manufacturers of body protection only indicate a product life of two to three years their protectors, whereas SAS-TEC foam comes with a life expectancy of about ten years.
Built with safety in mind, Terrawest partnered with Recco (Advanced Rescue Technology) and included a Recco Reflector to the top of the backpack in order for search and rescue teams to be able to search for a victim in the case of an avalanche emergency situation.
