Fits well in my jacket, hope I never have to need it.
Got the G1 size as I'm smaller, and it fits well in my jacket. Makes it a bit more snug, but not uncomfortably so. The weight of the armour is lighter than I expected, which makes it comfortable to wear. I'm just hoping I'll never have to find out how well it works!

This thing is wide and thick, like whoa. I think I could back slam a parking garage after being dropped from the ISS and still be fine when wearing this, but man does it make me look like I'm wearing a pizza box under my jacket.

Don't even notice it is there
Great comfort and level 2 protection. I can barely even notice it is there.

It does its job protecting your back
Lowsided at about 15-20 mph on my back in the street while wearing one of these and needless to say I got right back up instantly feeling no back pain. It runs quite a bit large so be cautious of the jacket your going to put it in. I had a fun time getting it into a dainese d-dry spedio jacket even thought it wasnt right until I called the awesome guys at revzilla and they confirmed it fits. Overall very good protection just wish they made these good for 2 crash impacts.

Hope I never have to use it
What can I say, it's Level 2 spine armor. It fits in the pocket of my Size 58 Alien jacket. It's not uncomfortable, and after a while you don't notice it any more. It breathes very well in so far as I have tested it. It hasn't gotten really hot yet, so I don't know how well it will breathe at 85+ degrees, but in the mid 70's I don't get a big sweaty hot spot on my back.
It's definitely not stylish, and has made my sexy Italian leather jacket a little bit hunchbacked. But it's not designed to look cool, it's designed to reduce the likelihood of breaking yourself in an unintentional high speed dismount. LIke all Dainese armor, it feels like it will protect you, and that is what is important. I hope I never have to find out how well it performs, but just in case, I'm glad I have it in my jacket.

It was a mistake.
I actually ordered a wrong product but since it had so many good reviews, I decided to give a try. I tried it on once, I'm sending it back shortly. Way too bulky and uncomfortable. It's not a fashion product so it shouldn't matter if I look like a hunch back, but it didn't stay on the properly (it's kept on sliding and crooked). It might do the job when crushing situation, but I'm gonna have to go for other product.

Feels very safe and protective.
I added this back protector to my jacket and I feel more confortable riding with it.
It fits great and covers good part of the back.
