Forcefield Back Protector Insert Pro for Alpinestars
Your mission is to read this.
Zup Zilla Nation,
I currently own a Forcefield Pro Insert #10 and #3 from revzilla.com. I can quote the same stuff you already read in the description but I bet your more interested in how it fits, is it comfy, and if it works.
One day I said to myself...”self, I think I will highside today” I crashed, went boom. Forcefield CE2 Pro L2K back protector...back good.
Pro Insert Fit:
Replaced the A* bionic air insert size small(note: great product just wanted CE2). Why, lets say my street riding has progressed in aggression and felt I need to bump up the protection. Plus the A* bionic air was shorter(length) about a inch and an inch 1/2 width, than the OEM foam so it seemed to shift “a little” in the back armor pocket.
The Pro insert #10 is closer to the size of the OEM foam and pocket(still a little smaller) but is much thicker so it takes up more space in the pocket and so it moves side to side so much less.
All forcefield stuff, that I own or have owned, when you first put it on you tend to feel the edges of the protector. But after you move around a bit and it starts to mold to your jacket and body it will go away and you'll forget its there.
All the things that are in the product description happens after you are wearing it for about 5-10min and on. Air flow is like a helmet or an undersuit...if your standing and or walking around you get very little, but if you get hit by a passing breeze or riding your ride, the air flow is very apparent.
In a “comfort fit” jacket or an older A* cut jacket, like an MX-1 yearish, I would get the #10.
If you have a more “race fit” or a more modernish A* Tech-1r, Atem, Tech Air, I would use the #3. This is because the shape is narrower at the top and bottom and the tight cut of the jacket...trust me it just fits better.
Notes: All my gear is 38US/48EU in A* suits and jackets. All of which have the bionic chest armor in the front pockets. Because of the older A* cut the MX-1 jacket and suit are more of a “loose” comfort fit. The Tech1R jacket and suit are a very tight “race” fit.
Hope this helps,

The Forcefield Back Protector Insert Pro is the best back insert on the market for any jacket. Size 11 is the exact same measurements as the foam insert in the Lucerne, Verona Air, and probably many other compatible Alpinestars jackets (see pictures). The Insert Pro is of course thicker, heavier, more air restrictive, and hotter due to the dense Nitrex material. The increased CE Level 2 protection at only a $10 premium makes this an easy decision when upgrading over the Bionic Air.

Fits perfectly in GP leather jacket
Bought this because I like Forcefield products and wanted one for my Astars GP leather jacket. Have Forcefield in all my jackets and really like the way they mold to your shape. Air flow is fantastic.

Adam L: Fits perfect in my A-Stars Leather Jacket...doesn't take away from the cooling effect or sacrifice comfort, bends and conforms with my back ...good added feature if you wanting a little extra peace of mind.Aug 12, 2014
Tim N: Recommended by Revzilla customer service for good airflow and high level of protection for my Alpinestars Jaws Perforated Leather Jacket.Aug 12, 2014
Matthew M: To protect my spine from splitting in halfJul 18, 2014
A shopper asked:Will this fit in the a* gp plus r leather jacket?Jul 3, 2014
Neal C:I ordered this protector to fit in my A-Stars Indy Leather Jacket. It went into the armor pocket fine, but I sent it back. Between the slim fit of the jacket and the thickness of the protector, it made the jacket seem a little too small - Definitely would have been when I upgraded the chest protectors too. I swapped this protector with the thinner Forcefield level 1 model, and fit is very good. If I didn't already own the jacket, and I had my heart set on this protector, I would consider ordering a size up with the jacket.Jul 3, 2014
William K:The #11 Forcefield is similar in shape to the Dainese Shield Air G Level 2 Back Protector, similar width of 10 /12 inches but taller by 1 inch. The Dainese Back Protector is 18 1/2 inches tall and the Forcefiled is 19 1/2 inches tall. Check the height of your pocket. I measured the foam back pad in my Alpinestars (large) Jacket and found that the #11 Forcefield fits perfectly. Hope this helps. Measure your pocket and compare it to the dimensions of the #11 Forecefield (19.5" x 10.5"). Good luck.Jun 12, 2014
William K:Measure the pocket or the foam pad in your jacket. The Forcefield Sport Lite Back Protector Insert #11 is a Level 1 (10.5"x19.5") but is not as rigid as the Forcefield Pro and could be trimmed slightly.Jun 12, 2014
William K:The #11 Forcefield measures 19.5" tall and 10.5" wide. That size generally fits A-Stars large or larger jackets. I would measure the foam pad or pocket of your jacket and see if the #10 or the #11 would fit the best. The #11 fits my A-Stars (large) jacket perfectly.Jun 12, 2014
