Falling and protective gear

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to protective gear (esp for the back) which would help protect my OH when he falls. He is in the pipeline for a helmet, and wears protective elbow pads - and I have just bought him a Forcefield Sports jacket which seemed perfect to me - but he said it was too tight/hot to wear - so it is having to be returned.


Have now invested in some “ snow pants” and body armour to protect butt, hips, back and shoulders. Seems to be working. If anyone would like to know makes etc just drop me a line. It took a long time to track them down but now I know!
Falling is so bad and seems unpreventable unless I am to be glued to my OH’s side. Am not sure why protective clothing, other than helmets, is not recommended and even supplied by the NHS
