Dainese Manis G Back Protector Insert 4.3 5 25 25
Feeling like a ninja turtle Was unsure if this would fit in my Dainese Alien jacket so a quick call to customer service sorted that out. The guy checked the measurements of the older Wave protector and guaranteed free return shipping if he was wrong, awesome! The protector its self feels nice barely know its there in the jacket even while wearing a backpack ln top. Flexes nicely which at 6'1" on sport bike is important for me to scrunch up. Feels like it takes about a half inch outta the size of the jacket as I'm a 42" chest but due to clearence got 56EU/44 US sized jacket but this improves fit just a tad. It feels sturdy and hopefully I'll never test. September 8, 2014
Fits the Dainese Razon jacket I was involved in a fall though it was at a very low speed and I had this protector in my jacket and it performed perfectly. I would recommend it to anyone but make sure it fits your jacket first. I have a Dainese Crono Textile jacket and the Manis back protector does not fit in it. August 25, 2014
Manis - Doesnt fit the D-Dry jacket Unfortunately the Manis "the latest in technology" doesnt actually fit the D-Dry jacket. Something that would have been nice to know before spending money shipping it to Australia (along with my new D-Dry jacket). It looks impressive and I am sure would be great in the right jacket, alas that is not what I have. Customer service was very helpful, but it would have been more helpful if there was a list of Dainese jackets the Manis fits (and doesnt) when you buy it. August 25, 2014
Fits all my jackets for the most part! I am happy that this fits into all my jackets, but ironically, it is really difficult to get into my Dainese racing jacket! I was able to get it easily into my Alpinestars Vika and Spidi Netix so at least there's that. I am a smaller framed person, but found this comfortable. I am 5'6" and 115 lbs. August 20, 2014
Too Inflexible and Too Big Prior to trying this I used a Wave G2 in all my Dainese jackets but was never happy with the inflexibility of that product. The Manis insert promises to alleviate that stiff feeling with several elasticated joints and interlocking plates. Unfortunately, in practice it is only marginally more flexible than its predecessor - there is still a distinct "hunchback" look when inserted in any compatible jacket. The protector really protrudes quite obviously and you can feel it as you ride, especially on a sportsbike. Furthermore, when inserting it I really struggled to get it past the zipper in my current generation Dainese jackets with which it is supposed to be compatible. I really had to pull the opening apart quite forcefully and was sure the zipper would break as the widest part of the Manis insert is wider than the opening in the jacket. There definitely needs to be work done on the tolerance of insert to opening on the jackets being produced. On the plus side it covers a larger area than the Wave did but the ergonomics, comfort and conspicuous appearance led me to drop it in favor of other products (specifically the d3o viper range). I wish I could recommend this product - I am a Dainese fanboy and like to keep 100% to that brand where I can but this is another let down. August 8, 2014
Great protection Bought this to put in my women's Dainese Air Flux jacket (which I love by the way). I'm 5'4", around 107lb. The good: - I haven't "crash-tested" this back protector, but I have high confidence in it based on the design, material selection, and overall durability. Having this additional layer of safety is worth every penny. A skinned leg or broken arm will teach you a harsh lesson, but a broken back/spinal injury can ruin your life. - It is compatible with my Dainese jacket, so it is held securely in place and feels like it belongs. - It is flexible in one direction, so I can comfortably bend forward slightly while riding. The bad: - It was difficult to get the back protector in my jacket. This isn't a big problem for me, as I intend to leave it in there indefinitely, but it worried me because I felt like I was going to destroy the jacket before I was set on keeping it. Just a slightly bigger opening would be great. - Going back, I probably would have gotten a size up on my jacket. The added thickness of the back protector makes the jacket tighter around my bust and neck area. - As much as I love the design, at the end of the day I still feel a little bit like a turtle with a hard shell on my back. It's not noticeable to others and doesn't bother me when I'm riding, but nonetheless I dream of the day when you can get a protector at this price and of this quality not even know it's there. As expected, the added bulk/rigidity to the jacket also makes it more annoying to carry my jacket around when I reach my destination. But that's a small price to pay for all this has to offer. August 4, 2014
Great product I bought this to fit in my size 48 Dainese Super Speed C2. It is a little tight getting it in the jacket, but once it's in there are no problems. This does make the jacket a little bit tighter, but I had no problems with size after it was in. It does affect the way my Icon Squad 3 backpack fits though. I can still wear the backpack, but i have to loosen the straps and it feels like it doesn't fit as well. I think it actually helps with longer rides and helps keep your back a little straighter. Worth the money to have more protection in your jacket. July 12, 2014
Comfortable but lacking in key area This is a big upgrade in the comfort department for Dainese back protectors. All the stretch and movement allows for a great wearing protector that doesn't feel like a stiff board on your back. However, it fails in one crucial aspect. Spinal hyperextension. If you take this product and bend it backwards, it gives no appreciable resistance. I see this as an important factor in protecting your back and spine. Lacking this, it provides nothing more than shock absorption. I suggest a Dainese Wave G instead. June 18, 2014

A shopper asked: Will the Manis G2 fit the Dainese Teren jacket size 48 ?
If not - which one of the other Dainese back protectors will be best ?
Jun 8, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Othmane B: I do not have the Dainese Teren in my wardrobe but I do own a size 48 super speed mesh jacket which is a much more aggressive and fitted jacket. Knowing this and looking at the dimensions, the Manis should easily fit!
Do not forget that you have 2 pockets in your jacket and it will fit in the largest one (the small one is for the "Wave" insert).
The "Shield" back insert can be another option but I will definitely recommend the "Manis" because of its level of flexibility and wide protection area.
Hope I was able to help you!

Chris B: I had a size 50 Euro Dainese leather jacket which corresponds to a US size 40. I ordered the larger 'Mens' size G2 and it was way too big to fit. I ordered the smaller 'women's' size G1 and it was a perfect fit.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Othmane B: I own a size 48 super speed textile jacket and it's the same style as your air frame jacket, so it should fit inside very well. Also, do not forget that you have 2 pockets to insert your back protector, and the manis G2 goes inside the larger one.
I put a lot of miles in this back insert and very satisfied with it since I do not even feel it anymore, and it moves with me as I work on my bike.
Hope this will help you.

Zach V: I currently wear a 38 US / 48 Euro Dainese Frazer Jacket, and the size G1 Manis G Back Protector Insert fits perfectly. I believe the G2 would be too big. However, if you're referring to a 48 US / 58 Euro jacket size, then the G2 would be the right choice. Hope this helps. Jul 24, 2014
Reply to Zach Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Fajar A: Zach, technical specs stated that G1 fit for women, you sure there'll be no problem with this..? related to safety factor..? Jul 24, 2014
Zach V: Absolutely. The G1’s "women" spec initially had me slightly concerned when ordering as well, but the fit is perfect and the protection coverage is definitely sufficient. Women’s jackets may exclusively use the G1 pocket, but it appears the Men’s jackets can accommodate either the G1 or G2 back protector depending on size. Jul 24, 2014
Fajar A: okay then, thank for helping me out Jul 24, 2014
Rossen C: It fits in my size 50 Super Speed Textile and my 50 Racing Leather, so it'll probably fit your size 48. If you don't want to risk it, shoot Revzilla an email, they're great with these types of questions. Jul 24, 2014

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.

Patrick C asked: What made you pick this back protector over the Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro for Dainese? They are both flexible and CE Level 2. Apr 29, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Todd B: I have the Manis G and the Forcefield for Dainese, each in multiple Dainese jackets (both leather and textile). For summer textile jackets, the Maniss will be a bit cooler than the Forcefield (e.g. better airflow over your back with the Manis). One could argue the Forcefield gives better protection, but I have no direct experience here as my crash experience is limited to sliding on my side. For my leather jackets or perforated leather jackets, I prefer the Forcefield over any of the Dainese back protectors (I have experience with the Manis and earlier versions of Dainese back protectors, and overall I like the Forcefield for not only fit, but less if a "hump" in my leather jackets...or, when airflow isn't the primary consideration, I prefer Forcefield).

stanley s: Be warned the Manis G back protector insert is bigger than the previous Dainese back protector such as the Wave G. For reference the Wave G2 fits my sized 48 Dainese Spedio with room to spare whereas the Manis G2 is a very tight fit.

Forcefield Dainese insert is shaped like Wave G. Compared to the Wave G it is heavier but more flexible. Thickness is about the same. Compared to the Manis G it is about the same flexibility but heavier.

Robert N: Great protector - good armored layer to prevent hard object penetration or blunt impact, flexible armadillo plates overlapping.

On fit. I put it an inside an AlpineStars jacket in size 48. Chose a small back protector it fitted well.

If you are in a 50 or up jacket then large may be better.

try and return for a different one if necessary.

Jarrod I asked: I have a 48EU Super Speed C2 Leather jacket so ordered the G1 as that's what the booklet on the jacket said. The Protector fits in the larger pocket but can just fit inside the smaller one also (the one made for the wave). That said, when it's in the smaller pocket I can feel it rubbing on my shoulder blades more then when in the larger. Which pocket should I keep it in? Jul 19, 2014

Tiffany B: I would keep it in the smaller pocket. You don't want it moving around in the larger pocket if you have an accident and fall on your back. You'll get used to feeling it on your shoulders and for me, it provides peace of mind knowing that it's not going to shift on me when I need it most! Jul 22, 2014

Matthew W asked: Do you know if this will fit in a Puma Racing Suit size 52 (Euro)? Thanks! Jun 16, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Tommaso G: Hi Matthew,

I don't have any racing suits whatsoever so I cannot honestly give a definitive answer. I bought this back protector for a Dainese jacket and it fits it perfectly. I do have another Alpinestars jacket that is a size 50 or 52 and it looks like it can accommodate it just fine.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Best of luck! Ride safe!

Wonseok H: I think it would fit well for size 52. Currently, I'm wearing a super speed jacket size 48 and the protector is just enough. Since size 52 is bigger than mine, the protector would be fit. Jun 3, 2014
