Alpinestars Bionic Air Back Protector Insert
Everything you would expect
This is a simple item, and meets the high expectations you probably already have for anything Alpinestars. Hopefully, I never have to find out how well it works, or doesn't work. Buy with confidence.

I know the biggest problems people encounter with back inserts is how uncomfortable they feel. This is not the case with this product. Expertly designed to move with your back and extremely comfortable. Awesome product!

This is my first back protector I bought , so I doesn't have much comparison facts to give. But I can say this fits unnoticed in my Alpinestars Viper air Jacket. Air flow its grate ( no problem to 34° celcius) and apparently very tough.

better than foam
I got this for more safety. You will feel the weight difference but its worth it. I'd rather eat it with this back protector than the foam that came with the jacket.

Does what it's supposed to...
Back protector is quite nice, not too thick and obtrusive but I definitely think it would save you in a fall.
Fits into Celer jacket pretty easily, and tightens up the yoke of the jacket and between my shoulder blades.
If you're ordering a chest/back protectors in addition to a new A* jacket, order on size up because the A* jackets are notoriously small.

Great protection, hardly know it's there.
Fits great into my A* Jaws perforated jacket. Can't even feel it when in the tuck. Rocked that same combo during some 85 degree Socal rides and it breathed very well, until u got stuck at a light...

Wished it was more secured in the jacket
Size Large in a Alpinestars Jaws Size US42.
As everyone mentioned, it curves nicely when in riding position, breathes and I believe it should protect nicely (I hope I don't test it).
But it moves around inside the jacket's pocket (not while riding). I wished there was a button to attached the insert onto the Jacket so it would stay center (like the Level 2). I have to adjust it every time I put it on my jacket.
