The back protector, as its name suggests, only protects the rider's back. The back protector has padding and inserts on the back, thus it protects the spine all the way down to the lower back. It also protects the back from sharp objects or kicks after a fall.
The body protector, on the other hand, offers full body protection, as it is also padded on the sides and front. It therefore offers a higher level of protection, regardless of how you fall. Whether you choose a back protector or a body protector will depend on your personal risk assessment and your needs.
A back protector protects your back in case of a fall. It should therefore not be too long, otherwise it will rub against the pommel of the saddle and irritate you rather than assist you. Of course, it should not be too short either, as you want it to protect your entire back in the event of a fall.
The best way to choose the right size of back protector is to use the size charts and take exact measurements.
