ISPO Award Product of the Year Snowsports ALPINA SPORTS PROLAN VEST

ALPINA SPORTS PROLAN VEST - The Sustainable Back Protection Made of New Wool

Back protectors for freeskiers or mountain bikers can protect against serious injuries. Really comfortable vests made of more or less hard polymers have rarely been seen before. ALPINA SPORTS is breaking new ground with the PROLAN VEST: the vest and protector plate are made of sustainably produced sheep's wool. The back protection not only meets the TÜV standard 1621-2 level 1, but should also adapt naturally to the back. This ensures a high level of wearing comfort and optimum freedom of movement. Natural sheep's wool regulates the body temperature and should remain odourless even after prolonged use.


Available from: August 2020
Estimated selling price: 159.- Euro

Jury Statement

"Fantastic to see natural materials in a category dominated by polymers, it is also incredibly comfortable to wear, and would not build up odour over extended use - great!"
