Apart from your head and neck, all the really important stuff in your body is contained within your rib cage. Ribs do a great job of keeping your vital organs safe, and of keeping you breathing. Now give your ribs a poke. Ouch! That’s right, beyond a bit of skin and (variable amount of) fat, there’s not a lot protecting your ribs, unless you decide to invest in an impact vest…
- they pad your ribs against the impact of slapping the water when you fall out of the sky.
- Extra Buoyancy :Many vests used for Impact Protection are actually designed to pro vide flotation.
- Warmth : A vest adds yet another layer between your body and the water, further insulating you from the cold temperatures while out there kiteboarding.
- Harness in place - For those who struggle with keeping their waist harnesses from riding up on into their ribs and chest, the added bulkiness of a floatation vest helps to keep your harness from sneaking up. Most of Impact vests have a reduced amount of fabric near the bottom to allow the kiteboarding harness to fit comfortably over.
