Dainese Shield Air G Level 2 Back Protector 4.5 5 50 50
good stuff using this for the occasional track day back protection. hopefully i won't have to find out if it protects as it should. little tight fitting it into my dainese racing jacket. September 15, 2014
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! August 21, 2014
It's HUUUUUGE 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. May 27, 2014
Don't even notice it is there Great comfort and level 2 protection. I can barely even notice it is there. May 22, 2014
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. May 15, 2014
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. May 12, 2014
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. May 10, 2014
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. April 23, 2014

Joaquin R: Great security complement for my Dainese Air 3 Textile, and perforated for summer high temperatures May 3, 2014
Lowell P: I wanted back protection. The G2 fits in all three Dainese jackets I have. It is light and quite comfortable, especially when feet are on the highway pegs and I am leaning back against the backrest on the Ultra Classic Electra Glide. Apr 30, 2014
Rafael D: I was in doubt between this and the Forcefield. Decided on these because they seem a bit slimmer. Apr 22, 2014
Ryan R: GO with the Wave G Apr 3, 2014
Alex W: While I do not use spine protection religiously, I usually do wear it. Living in arizona I wanted spine armor with good ventillation. I needed this one to go with a dainese jacket I had recently purchased. Mar 1, 2014
Axel H: First time rider and need some back protection. This seemed to be a good choice. Feb 18, 2014
Martyn J: Great protection for the recreational rider, max air flow and all at a great price, even when you consider the international shipping! Jan 31, 2014
Jose D: Good protection. Oct 29, 2013
Chris E: There's never any substitute for Dainese products so when it came to buying a back protector, reading the previous reviews as well this was an obvious and easy choice to make.

With the international shipping costs added its made this piece of equipment 'premium' in terms of price, but would you really want to compromise your own safety and protection for a few bucks. I'm hoping that I'll never have to find out how good this product is, I'm happy with the peace of mind it gives

John G: I chose this item because I wanted level 2 back protection for my Dianese jacket Aug 15, 2013
A shopper asked: Very new to riding and looking for gear info. The Revzilla review of the Dainese back protectors list the Dainese Wave as a Level 1 Back protector and the Dainese Shield Air G as a Level 2 Back Protector. But say that the Wave is a step up from the Air. How can that be if the Wave is a Level 1 and the Air is a Level 2. My question is which one offers better protection in the case of a crash the Wave or Air? And is the Level 1 or 2 classification refer to style, fit, or protection? Aug 30, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
John L: Level 1 or 2 refers to the protection standards. Level 1 is less than level 2, so the Shield Air G offers more protection than the Wave G. G 1 and G2 refer to the size of the back protector, G1 is smaller than G2. I also looked at both back protectors before getting the Shield Air G, and it is larger than the Wave G in size and shape (rectangle vs oval) and covers more of your back for better protection. Sep 3, 2013
Reply to John Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
John M: Level 2 is a measure of protection. Level 2 is better than Level 1. The Air G is much thicker than the Wave. I have mine in my cold weather jacket as it wouldn't fit in my Dainese summer leather jacket. I haven't ridden with mine yet, but it's comfortable in the jacket, and as I say, much thicker and more protective. Sep 5, 2013

Lowell P: The Dainese Shield Air G Level 2 is an excellent back protector. it shieldd yhe spine very well znd is light weight. I use this back protector in both my Dainese Evo Gator coat (winter riding) Nd ainese Sep 3, 2013

Carl F: I can't answer your question about crash protection, not having a chance to test it. I believe the Lev does refer to protection level. It comes in two sizes, G1 and G2. Sep 4, 2013

Kenny F: Hello,

While I cannot answer you question. What I CAN tell you is that I highly suggest you go with the Alpinestars Bionic Air Back Protector Insert. It's Level 1, but it's a lot more slimmer and will not give you too much of a hunchback like this Shield G2. The Shield G2 made me look like a ninja turtle...

Dave H: A, I don't know about the Xantum D-Dry, however my Dainese Shield Air G Level 2 back protector (size: G2) is 10 3/4 inches wide at it's widest and 18 3/4 inches tall when measured on the concave side. (The side against your back.) It just fits into the back protector pocket of my size 52, DUCATI Fighter Jacket (by Dianese of course) however you must work it into the pocket inch by inch. Once in the pocket it doesn't move at all. Jan 7, 2014

David G: I'm assuming this is regarding the size G2 because it is larger and can be a very snug fit at first. I have the G2 in a size 50 Dainese Rebel jacket and it fits without a problem. One quick note, there are two pockets, of different size, for back protectors in my last two Dainese jackets. According to the Revzilla YouTube video review for the Dainese Shield Air G, the G2 size should fit jackets down to a size 48. Aug 30, 2013

Robert T: Hi, I currently use the air back protector in my avro leather jacket and it fits fine in the back pocket. it does bulge a bit when my jacket is zipped up but it is still comfortable and offers great protection. I was going to buy the wave because has a flatter profile but if I was going to use a back protector, I didn't want to half-ass it. Also, it does actually breath quite well.
My jacket actually has a divider in the back pocket, im guessing one side is for the wave and the other for the air.

Robert B: I bought the Shield G2 to go into a size 50 Dainese Atallo D Dry jacket. This is a fairly sporty trim fitting jacket. It wouldn't fit- about an inch too long. I bought a Wave G2 and it fits fine in the Atallo (but it offers a lower CE Level 1 protection rating).. If in doubt go with the Wave. I put the Shield in a BMW Ventilated Suit where it fits fine and is a vast improvement over the BMW rock hard 'foam' back protector. Jan 28, 2014

Josh L: I'm not sure about the Rebel TG, but I have both the Avro C2 and the Talos in a size 50. The Air G2 fits in to both, though it's a very tight squeeze. I would wager that the G2 would fit any Dainese jacket in a 52. Apr 29, 2014

A shopper asked: Is this compatible with the Dainese Super Speed Textile Jacket? May 4, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
nickburns19: The Shield Air should be compatible with the Super Speed Textile Jacket even in a G2 size. I just bought this jacket in a size 52 but am going the Forcefield route instead (Medium, G2). I originally bought the Air Flux jacket in the same size with the G2 Shield Air back protector, but returned both since the jacket was just a hair too tight to accept it. I did, however, take measurements of the back protector and compared it to my Super Speed Textile jacket and it would have worked perfectly.

Two words of caution though:
1) The Jacket has two pockets for backprotectors. One for the G1 and one for the G2 to make sure that your protector isn't loosely fitted and moving around on you when riding.
2) If the jacket size you order is snug, you will want to move up a size since the Shield Air is pretty thick (i.e. - ~2")

A shopper asked: what is the best back protector for avro leather jacket?, the Dainese Wave G Back Protector or Dainese Shield Air G Level 2 Back Protector , thanks Mar 1, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro for Dainese is considered to be the best option seeing as it is CE Level 2 certified and is capable of absorbing multiple impacts. The Shield Air G and Wave G are what we consider to be "One & Done," back protectors. By this I mean, once the back protector absorbs a certain amount of energy (usually one crash or major impact) it is no longer usable as it will not function properly. That being said, the Back Pad Insert is your best option, followed by the Air G, and lastly the Wave G, which is CE Level 1. Mar 5, 2013

RevZilla: Yes, this will fit but may fit better if inserted upside down due to the shape of the pocket in your jacket. If you are looking for level 2 protection for a REV'IT! Tornado, then you may want to consider the Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro in Type "B," Size "SM" as it is a direct fit to the pocket and will provide more coverage. Also, trimming a SAS-TEC in size 1/12 is always an option. Apr 26, 2012
