Forcefield Back Protector Insert Pro for Alpinestars
Great product. Fits perfect in my Alpinestars T-GP air jacket in XL. never crashed and don't wont to, but I am comfortable in its protection. Even fits well in my old Alpinestars Vector leather jacket in 54EU/44US. Also side note, excellent customer service by revzilla team.

After my brother got in an accident I decided to upgrade my Alpinestars GP Pro Jacket. I decided on the Forcefield Alpinestars back protector because I wanted something with level 2 protection but that I could fit in the same pocket that the original protector was in.
This back protector is exactly the same size as the original protector but it makes the original look like a joke in comparison.The original protector is nothing more than a 1/4inch thick piece of foam. This protector is almost an inch thick but it provides serious protection for your back.
It makes your jacket slightly heavier but i haven't noticed any difference in riding with it in my jacket. You still have the same flexibility as before but you can see the silhouette of the protector in your jacket which is awesome.
Do yourself a favor and upgrade to one of these, you will be very glad you did. If your up in the air just open up the back pocket of your jacket and look at the foam that it comes with. It will make you think twice about the protection you thought you had back there.

Recommended by those who know and you can see why. Fits beautifully in the jacket and disappears when worn. I've had it on with backpack on and without. Great airflow and always peace of mind. I work with a Harley guy who was reminiscing about his crotch rocket crash back in the day. He gave me a punch in the back wearing my jacket and said he wore his all the way down to the last layer in a slide and might not have made it without it. Get it. I've compared it with Rev'it's offering and I like it better. Substantial but good weight and flexibility.

I got this for my A* T-GP-R-Air (size S) and GP-Pro (size 48).
Choose this instead of Bionic Air because this one offers CE2 level protection, while Bionic Air only offers CE1.
Airflow is good in T-GP-R Air, it's thick but I don't feel it much while riding.

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.
