Dainese Shield Air G Level 2 Back Protector
Comfy back protector
I got this free with the purchase of the Laguna Seca D-dry Jacket. I can't complain at all about price because it was free. Although the msrp does seem competitive with other back protectors out on the market. For anyone with a Dainese jacket that this will fit in, it does not add any discomfort. It fits well in the pocket of the jacket and when I'm on the bike I completely forget its even in the jacket. I am 5'9" and I feel like it does a good job with the overall coverage of my back. Although it would be nice to see some tail extension. Other than that, if I had actually purchased this seperately I would not have been disappointed.

great bit of back protection
The Dainese Shield Air G Level 2 Back Protector is great, fits very well with my jacket (Dainese leather racing pelle non perf) protects from shoulder blade to shoulder blade and nape of neck to bottom of spine I have the mens size G2. It breaths very well (Australian summer weather) and can't hardly feel its there, its flexible so moves with you even when you get into tank/tuck position, there is a minimal lump from protector but hardly noticeable and nothing to worry about whens its protecting your spine its optimum protection Dainese the best!! AAAAA+++++ Happy customer

It's actually really comfy
It really molds into my back for some reason. I imagined that having this would be really uncomfortable, but as it turns out, I actually feel comfortable leaning on surfaces while having my jacket and this on. Plus, it looks really sturdy and flexible.
I haven't tested its strength yet, but I don't intend to, or hope to do so.

Great product, quick delivery
Its a dainese product so the quality is as high as you would expect, and the price is reasonable.
Looks good, feels good, now to tuck it away in my jacket and hope that I'll never have to comment on whether it actually works or not but its a sturdy piece of kit that gives peace of mind.
The ease of ordering and quick delivery to me in Australia has made this whole purchasing experience hassle free.

Does not fit in jacket
i had bought my dainese super speed mesh jacket from the d store in chicago. i needed a back protector and wanted to get it before laguna seca and the ride up there from la. i did get the product before my trip thanks to revzilla however, it was extremely tight to get into the pocket and causes the jacket to pull back and bunch up. it also causes the front of the collar to get pressed against my neck somewhat. not alot but enough to leave a red mark for the rest of the night after a 400 mi drive.
If it fit in the jacket without causing the jacket to bunch or fit poorly i would be giving it five stars across the board.

Great coverage for a good price
Size - 6'2 180 lbs
Slipped this into the back pocket of a Dainese Crono jacket and it fits super snug. Covers almost all of my back and doesn't interfere with my riding position at all. I'd definitely recommend it.

Great for casual riding
I have a Super Speed Textile jacket, and got this to use in this jacket for when I'm just riding around town. (I wear an Avro Race suit and a Wave back protector for aggressive riding) I've spent a lot of time with this in my jacket and I hardly know it's there, I've even sat through several movies. And I know I'll be protected in the event of an off. One of the reviews said that the larger didn't fit into his jacket, so I measured the pocket and bought the smaller one. I then read somewhere else that the jacket has 2 pockets (I didn't see the second pocket) and I could have fit the larger one in it (I assume the second pocket is for the wave G). I'm happy with the protector but I'll probably buy the larger one soon as it provides a few extra inches of protection.

Dianese makes the best stuff hands down. I installed this back protector in my ST Air jacket. It fits better than the G2 size. Air flow seems to be good but I don't have a solid one to compare to.
