Comic-Con Hero-Like Ski Outfit May Save Your Life

The support provided by this product may save a skier from being permanently paralyzed in the event of a bad fall.

The Torso Armor Jacket by Swedish company POC will make you look like a Marvel comic hero but is not just cool for that reason alone. The white portion protects the spine from being snapped like a twig when someone rolls down a snowy mountainside.  It would also make a cool trooper outfit from Star Wars.

BTW Yahoo just reported that Jake Lloyd, the actor who played Young Anakin, despises the movies he was in.  We do too, Jake.  We do too.
