Dainese Thorax Wave Pro
Good protection but incompatible with smaller jackets
Offers comfortable protection, but requires elbow and shoulder protection to go along with it which would mean it naturally needs those added on OR you wear it under a jacket with already built in shoulder and elbow protection like Dainese leather or textile lines. HOWEVER, my size 44 Dainese leather jacket won't come close to being able to zip up with this thorax wave pro on. This is suppose to be a base layer protection, but probably won't fit under any Size 46 and below jacket.

Feels light once you get used to it you will not even notice you have a back protector . I am 5.7' tall. Medium size fits perfect. Only thing is you might have to detach the chest protection because then the suit is very tight bec my suit is a very snug fit

I would definitely recommend
In the interest of full disclosure, 80 degrees is the hottest temp i have had the opportunity to ride in with this on. I wore it under the rev'it ignition jacket. The airflow was much more than expected which is fantastic. As others have mentioned, I pray I never have to put this product to the ultimate test but if i do, I feel confident that I have taken a critical step to giving myself the best possible shot at walking away.
RIDE SAFE AND RESPONSIBLY.

Worth the Money
I am actually surprised at how comfortable the Thorax Wave Pro is, although I have only worn it under nylon and not my tighter fitting leather jacket. Regardless, I recently took a spill (before purchase) and hit my chest plate into the bars. I got off lucky with severe bruising but I am convinced this would not have happened if wearing the TWP. Very hard but flexible body armor. Dainese seemed to have thought of everything for protection with comfort. Styling with Dainese goes without saying. I only gave it a four (out of five stars) because nothing's perfect but the TWP is worth the money and my wife was all too happy to see me walk out the door wearing it.

bought this as a last minute purchase
after listening to other racers I bought this last minute
I usually wear just the spine protector , but decided I needed just a little more protection for my first race with WMRRA this season
the fit was awesome once I zipped up the leathers this thing just molded to my body perfectly
didn't feel bulky what so ever and gave me a sense of confidence I was looking for
placed 3rd in both days of racing
first rain race ever on the first day
double podium both day

Thorax Wave Pro FTW!
I will never get on my motorcycle without it! Feels as if my upper body is protected 100%

Complete torso protection
This combination chest and back protector is exactly what I was looking for. It offers the maximum protection with complete comfort. It's nice to know that I can take off any part of the protector if I choose too (I doubt I ever will though) and I can wear it under anything that I would ride in (I never ride without a leather jacket, no matter how hot it is) and I barely know I have it on. I hope I never have to test it, but based on all the MotoGP and Superbike crashes I've seen of riders wearing Dainese, I'm confident that I'm well protected.

This product appears to provide professional protection.
The thorax wave pro looks to be constructed well. The fit is great, and it works well under my jacket. I can actually feel airflow even when it is worn under a perforated jacket. I hope I do not have to test it, but I am sure it will provide more protection than the standard padding in most jackets.
