The Atomic Live Shield is a classic level 1 back protector shield for men and women – offering supreme ultra-lightweight protection for every race or powder day of the season. The protection comes from multi-density 3-layer foam which is softer close to the body and stiffer on the outside to gradually absorb shock before it reaches your body. Then the Active Thermo Fit adapts to the shape of your back for a neat and close fit, and the shoulder straps and waist belt keep it perfectly in place without riding up. The waist best is also removable and height-adjustable to fit different torso lengths for a great individual fit.
