Hey Guys, totally understand the need for numbers, I just got my insanely expensive calipers ready for the 2023 season, we are all micro engineers I think, ha.  So the slalom vests are designed to take on very little water when out on the lake, being neoprene they will take some on, but the type of foam we use in our vests means a minimal amount will be absorbed into the vest.  attached is a link to dry vs wet.  Take a look and keep the questions coming.  Cheers.

Hey, We have added more padding in the most common places for injuries in slalom.  We also made the padding quite high density so it can absorb more of the shock at immediate impact.  We've had lots of good feedback from skiers that have taken those rib ticklers.  Attached is an image of our new velocityX vest.  The padding contours around the rib cage and we also put the padding higher on the shoulders to protect collar bones at that point.  We do have people using it outside of skiing, we have an mma fighter who uses it to spar in and also an elderly lady who uses it to protect her from falls.  So the padding has certainly helped others outside of its schemed design.

Hey Jibbo,

The base layer of the suit and the padding are the same on all our vests. 

The Logo Vests are hemmed at the bottom and the EVO2 and VelocityX does not have that so has a little more  forgiveness around the waist. 

We stuck with the padding and base layer as this has proven to be popular with a lot of skiers.

This is probably as good a compromise as you can get without the vest being heavy and cumbersome.  I like to take a breather at the end and gather as much oxygen back into my system as possible before the next run, and I can happily float without needing to paddle around.  My shoulders stick out of the water and I wouldn't say I'm feather boned, ha.  But ask around, I think there are a few bos posters who have our vests who may provide some feedback on that also.  Thankyou
