Dainese Wave Air Back Protector (Size LG Only) 5 5 5 5
Best fitting of the bunch So I went to the holy land down there on South 26th Street in Philly and tried on a number of competing back protectors. I won't name them, but they are major competitors. For me at least, this Dainese Wave Air fit the best - it was bendable and had the best air flow too. It's only about $50 more than it's competition too. As with all of these, on a hot day, the waist strap will get warm, as it runs across your stomach, blocking most of the air, but it's worth it to have the back protection. I took out the cheapo foam back pads in my jackets and just go with this now - gives me that piece of mind. July 11, 2013
great product, worthy purchase if you're looking for a protector that will stay on your back and has great airflow and great protection this is it. i like that you can strap this to your body so you know it always stays in place. you can adjust the straps depending on your size and when you move around this thing moves with your body so you dont feel all stiff. i havent tried it with my race suit yet but just wearing it with a jacket its perfect. I dont want to find out if it holds up to road rash but looking at this i have no doubt it will do its job if needed. a little pricey but great buy overall May 28, 2013
Great design Very comfortable and super sleek fit, no issues with un-comfort February 25, 2013
Dainese has your back | It's called the 'Air' for a reason For those that don't know - Dainese was the company that first developed a back protector along with MotoGP rider Barry Sheene. The first models were archaic; made from old helmet visors. Of course, Dainese has make huge leaps and bounds since then. The Air most certainly got it's name from it's exceptional ventilation. I have a D-back protector from about five years ago and this thing blows it out of the water. I can't wait for the weather to warm up into the 90s so I can test the comfort even further with the Air. I know that in a crash - Dainese has my back. May 17, 2011
the best back protector I've tried yet I bought this back protector in particular to go under my Dianese/Ducati leathers. I've tried a handful of other back protectors but this one is the lightest and most comfortable and fit the best. The ventilation is leaps and bounds better than any other that I've tried, and while some of my other ones were bulky under my leathers....these fit perfectly and you almost didn't know it was there. Again, as with my previous review of the Dia/shorts I also bought....I can not say enough good about REVZILLA they have the most knowledgeable staff and informative website, and their shipping is unsurpassed. I ordered these items one morning online and they showed up and were on my doorstep from across the state of Pennsylvania before lunch the very next day. A+++ March 7, 2011
