Protection you can count on Thankfully I have not had to test out the impact protection on this back protector yet. I have been using the previous generation wave protectors up until now and can say that this version seems to feel better when inserted in my jacket. It conforms better to my back and seems to be less bulky when I'm in my riding position. I ordered the larger size for my size 54 Super Speed Textile jacket and it fit with zero issues. April 2, 2014
Great build quality but didn't fit in Laguna EVO Build seems great, however the G2 size did NOT fit in my size 52 Laguna EVO jacket. You think it would considering it a new jacket in the Dianese line. I will be contacting Revzilla and asking what the deal is. March 5, 2014
Best protection I upgraded from the G2 Wave. This provides more coverage without bulk, and for me covers down to the tailbone. Fitment was no issue in super speed c2. I wear size 58, and went with the large. February 27, 2014
Seemingly good protection. This is a good addition to a Dainese jacket. I got it to use in my Cage and it just barely fits. However, it stays in place well and isn't annoyingly noticeable. The multi-plate design is really cool, it works like an armadillo's shell and follows the curvature of your back as you move. For $90, I don't think you could do much better. The coverage is also very good for an insert. February 24, 2014
Tough yet flexible and breathable. I originally got the G2 size in this protector to put in my size 44 Dainese Super Speed Textile jacket but it didnt fit. If your a 44 your gonna need a size G1, just fyi for smaller riders since its not posted on this page. That being said, its rock solid and tough. I slipped it into my jacket and couldn't even tell it was in there once I started riding. Good air flow and it flexes with your back very well especially in that aggressive sport position. Over all the other protectors, I would say this is a must have/get if you want that solid protection with good air flow and flexibility. February 10, 2014
Excellent Design Outstanding design and build quality. Adaptive form-fitting articulated overlapping panels. A rider exoskeleton. (have I seen Transformers too many times...?) Padded comfort on interior and CE level 2 rated. Well conceived and constructed. And looks cool. December 17, 2013
Best inert back protector The Manis had to be the best back protector i have ever owned!! The flexibility of it makes you forget it is even in the jacket and like anything from Dainese top quality!! I have it in my Dainese Avro jacket and fits perfect!! I highly recommend this product from them! December 10, 2013
Awesome protection This seems like a great back protector. It's very soft on the inside and very ridged & protective on the out side. I love how this thing bends too. Any way you push or pull it will contour to your back. It fits perfectly in my Dainese Racing jacket. Also, once you get it inside the jacket you can barely tell it's there. Another great product from Dainese! October 28, 2013

Hervey W: I needed a back protector for my Avro Textile jacket. I was put off other Dainese protectors by some of the reviews and was tempted by the Forcefield inserts (a little cheaper, reusable) but concerned about fitment in my jacket. The Manis G appears to resolve my concerns with other Dainese protectors and I'm more confident of correct fit in my jacket. Jan 20, 2014

Faisal Y: I have the superspeed in 48 as well. There are two sections in the jacket, which side did you put it in?
I called revzilla customer service for help as I bought the G2 as well. Disappointed that revzilla customer service rep told me that he will email me to let me know which pocket it goes in but no email.

Its a tight fight, lot of stretching to get it in there

Chris B: The Dainese back protector plastic bag cover states you should use the G2 larger size protector for jacket size 44 and larger. For your size 48 the slightly larger back protector should fit both you and the jacket better. It was a tight squeeze getting the protector in my jacket - I originally got the G2 which wouldn't fit as my jacket size was 50EU / 40US so I had to exchange for the smaller G1 which fits fine.You should be good with the larger G1.

Gabriel R asked: Is this supposed to be large side down (logo upside down) in a dainese jacket? Dec 3, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RAJESH M: Large side goes up (logo upright) for this back protector when fitted in a Dainese Racing Perforated jacket (Size 52). I found it a little tricky to insert it at first--the zip opening in the jacket IS narrow--but was able to eventually wiggle it in. Good fit and feel once installed and does not alter jacket fit at all. Dec 12, 2013
Reply to RAJESH Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Gabriel R: I see...yet I tried this in a friends Avro Jacket, and the smaller compartment fits better with the Manis having the logo facing downwards (larger area at the bottom of the jacket). Anyone else have feedback on which compartment it should be in, and which direction it should face? Dec 29, 2013
Jesse G: Nope. Larger side up. I have the Manis G insert in my Dainese Racing jacket and there is a pocket that it fits into perfectly. Once it's in you can barely tell it's there. Very comfortable and protective. Jan 29, 2014
