Back protector under a backpack?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

simple question:  do you wear back protector under a backpack? Should I?

 

I recently bought a backpack for skiing (Mammut Nirvana Pro 25), mainly for carrying avalanche gear, simple off-country skiing or one day trips, nothing extreme I would say.

 

When I put my backpack on without protector, it feels great. But If I put back protector underneath first, it feels terrible. It pulls and strains my shoulders and I did not find a way to make it somewhat comfortable.

My back protector is Scott X-Acite http://www.scott-sports.com/global/en/products/2396360001015/SCOTT-X-Active-Back-Protector

 

Maybe there are protectors that fits better under the backpacks...

 

What's your opinion on this? :)

I don't wear a back protector, so I imagine you should just be careful how you pack the back pack.
