Alpinestars Bio Armor Back Protector
this product is not the best but it is worth $30 so your spine doesn't snap in half. Also, when it's new it's sort of stiff but it'll loosen up so it'll have nice flexibility

Great upgrade for foam back pad.
Bought this to upgrade the back pad in my Tech-Air Jacket. The jacket is a size 38US/48EU and I purchased the size medium, perfect fit. Love the flexibility of the back protector, and air flow is what you'd expect from a piece of flexible, high-density foam with holes in it: It works, but could be better. Overall very happy with the upgrade.

Better than foam!
Decent insert back protector, a bit on the bulky side with minimal air flow. Bought it for my casual Dainese leather jacket, much better than the foam and more convenient than having to put on my strap on protector.

A spine is best when working
Everyone should add or upgrade the back proctors in jackets. If you ride in hot weather just get the Bionic Air back protector as it will be a lot cooler.

Just get it, It still breathes very well and conforms to your body. Fits very easy in my Viper Air jacket and install took seconds. I really don't see any reason not to upgrade.

I purchase an AS Jacket with a foam pad as a back protector so I purchased this product and it is far superior just by sight and feel. I have yet to test it and would be reluctant to try!

Must have for your jacket, but look for size
I bought my back protector together with my jacket because I don't want to mess around with my spine if I happen to be in a crash. I slipped the back protector into my jacket together with the thin padding that came with the jacket. I got a medium size one for my size 50 European Size A Star jacket, it slips down to my mid, lower back because there is no dedicated pocket for the protector to keep it in place.

Good safety for the price
Got the medium protector to fit in the back of my medium Astars verona jacket. Fits perfect. It's comfy enough and you normally don't realize that it is there. The protector does seem a bit small and only covers a portion of my back. Not sure how much protection it actually offers, but for the price it seems like a no brainer.
