Dainese L2 Chest Protector 4.6 5 9 9
Nice protector This chest protector fit nicely under my suit and jacket. It stays in place even when I'm moving around a lot. September 3, 2014
Great, easily fits in jacket pocket - quick in and out Used it on a recent trip of approx 2000 miles in 75-80 degree weather. Airflow was hard to tell as jacket has material over the protector. There are large holes which look like they will allow air movement if not covered. The protection feels substantial nd I really like how easily it came in and out. It was a bit annoying in that I would sometimes forget it when I set it down because it would not "attach" to the jacket. August 12, 2014
Another good dainese product I have the Dainese Frazer Pelle jacket. After I realized what the pocket was for on the inside, I decided I should buy a chest protector for added protection. The pocket was labeled for a "thorax" chest protector which is no longer in production. I bought the L2 instead and am happy to report that it fits perfect. The chest protector does add a little bulk to the jacket but its not that bad. And, above all, its very comfortable. You dont even notice it after a few minutes. Given that this product adds another layer, it felt rather breathable and wasn't stifling. August 4, 2014
Why not have more protection? Seriously, if you have a Dainese jacket with the pocket for the protector why not put it in? Fits in the pocket, you don't even know its there. My only grip is that when you take off the jacket, it falls out. The pocket should have a type of fastening system to hold it in. I will make something myself. I switch it from my textile jacket to my leather so I can't permanantly attach it. But it does not move or fall out when the jackets are on. Just when you take the jacket off. July 31, 2014
Fit my Alpinestars Andes Jacket I admit I had to heavily modify these to fit my jacket but it worked. Had to cut these in half and trim the entire outside fabric. Only left the hard plastic and backing intact. Wasn't impressed with the Alpinestars chest protectors so went with these CE level rated ones instead. June 2, 2014
Good product for the price. Overall a good product. The protector slips down during a ride and is difficult to readjust without unzipping your jacket. December 1, 2013
Works fine It is a bit of a pain getting it in and out of the half pocket in my jacket every time I put it on or take it off, but other than that it stays fine while I'm zipped up. I bought a jacket one size larger to accommodate for the L1 and the G2 back protector, and everything fits well and is comfortable. If you have a Dianese jacket with the insert pocket, this is the way to go. April 22, 2013
Stylish and great protection This chest protector is awesome! Typical Dainese style and the best protection. I have the thorax as well and wanted this one for track days as I thought it would have more movement and flex. I was right!! Definitely recommend the L1 for the track. Plus the quality materials and comfort was more than I was expecting. March 27, 2013

Justin L asked: Can these fit the dainese air frame jacket? Aug 16, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Matthew H: I don't think the Air Frame jacket has a chest pocket for a chest protector. However, a lot of people will wear the L2 chest protector in jackets without a pocket for it because if the jacket fits right, the L2 chest protector won't move around much (because of how light it is).

A S: I don't know as I bought it for my full piece race leathers. One thing I do know is that you should have something like this all the time having learned the hard way with a broken rib. The manufacturer should be able to tell you exactly. Aug 16, 2014

The chest protector without measuring it, because I'm at work currently is about a half of inch thick. Hope this helps!

A shopper asked: Is the L1 Chest Protector replacing the Thorax Chest protector? Mar 4, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Robifumi: No. Just 2 different designs. The L1 I think is more focused on track riders. Less protection but more movement for the rider. I have only seen racers use the L1, for years. Like Rossi and Guy Martin. I have never seen pro riders use the thorax. I think the thorax is more focused on sit up road riding although I have both and have used the thorax on track no problem Mar 27, 2013
Reply to Robifumi Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The L1 is not replacing the Thorax. Basically, the L1 meets CE Level 1 parameters and the Thorax further exceeds the Level 1 requirements. Mar 7, 2013

A shopper asked: Does it fit into Thorax pockets of Dainese Jackets? Nov 28, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The Dainese L1 Chest Protector is actually a little smaller than the Thorax. However, Dainese designed the L1 to fit the Thorax pockets in their jackets. So you will be able to easily fit the L1 into a Thorax pocket. Nov 29, 2012

Infinwin: I have a US size 42 Dainese Alien jacket and the medium L1 is a tight squeeze, but it just fits it the thorax pocket. Apr 22, 2013
