Alpinestars Bionic Air Back Protector Insert
protect yo neck
can't say too much about this except for the fact that its crazy expensive for what it is. there nothing superb about it, and i have no complaints.
it's light weight, and not too bulky. I would rate the protection level as medium, this will not cover the base of your neck or stretch all the down to your tail bone.
i am using it as an insert for my gp air jacket during my commute and also place it in my suit for canyon/track days.

Replaced the junk foam in my Astars jacket with this solid piece of armor and I feel so much safer. Great quality and breath-ability.

Great back protector
Great fit and very comfortable while riding. Good airflow. Hope not to test it though.

Bought this as an upgrade to the flimsy foam back pad in my Size - Medium, Alpinestars Viper Air Mesh jacket. The size medium insert fits perfectly. This is a night/day upgrade from the foam back pad that came with the jacket. You really only feel contact with the insert on your back when your on the bike in a partial tuck. Off the bike, you really don't feel it at all. The ONLY downside is the insert did add some weight to the jacket over the flimsy foam pad. I didnt really feel this insert snugged/tightened up the torso area of the jacket much.

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.
