Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro
Solid back protector
Size 002 Fits my Joe Rocket Phoenix 5.0 Perfect. Quality is awesome. Fits the jacket better then the foam pad that comes with it even. Its definitely thicker, but hasnt caused any discomfort, if anything more comfort because the back pad doesn't slide around like the stock foam pad in my jack did. The material the protector is made out of feels robust and durable. Definitely gives me more confidence in protection. Would recommend to anyone looking to upgrade the protection that came with their jacket

Forcefield -002 fits in a 3XL Bohn Airtex armored shirt
I recently bought a Bohn Armored shirt to wear under some of my jackets that have particularly ill-fitting armor. The only problem was that the Bohn included back armor wasn't good. With the forcefield level 2 back armor swapped in, I am finally satisfied with my basic protection.
The Forcefield back protector is really a nice piece and conforms to the body nicely. I've worn it everyday for As mentioned in other reviews... it is a strange smelling thing. I assume it will fade with time, but I'm only 2 weeks in.
I also have the limb tube knee protectors and am really impressed with the Forcefield product line.
Extra info- The original Bohn armored shirt uses a back protector that interchanges with a Teknic jacket I already have. However, This Forcefield -002 size is too big to fit the Teknic Jacket. The smaller Forcefield back protector would have fit in both.

Great insert, funny smell
Seems very well made, and fit perfectly in my Triumph jacket. I've let it air out since I got it two weeks ago but the dang rubbery/plastic smell just won't go away. Hoping time will take care of that. Otherwise, seems like a great value for great protection.

Perfect fit for my Sedici Nero Leather
On a leather jacket you might not feel it, but on a textile jacket it might be really tight, overall it is a level 2 ce protector, and its great!

Bought this to replace the foam pad in my Joe Rocket jacket and it fits, but is extremely tight. Not a problem though. Much lighter then I thought it would be and the added protection is great.

Great all around product
After purchasing the Scorpion Clutch jacket which is an amazing jacket in it's own right I was looking for a replacement back pad. I had looked at the sas-tec replacement but it was not available. I then decided to try this one out. Depending on the jacket check the dimensions as they come in different sizes to fit different jackets. The insert is very well constructed and though no one expects to fall I feel a little more comfortable knowing that I now have better back protection. It does take up more room and adds a little more weight in the jacket which will mean a little more snug fit which I don't find a problem. All in all it's a great product and a great addition to added safety while riding.

Used to replace the back foam protector on a River Road Baron Mesh Jacket (S). I will recommend this product.

Upgrade from the lowly foam! (Style 2)
I have a Joe Rocket Alter Ego 3.0 jacket, and purchased a style 2 pro Forcefield BackPad Insert for it.
The insert itself is thicker than the foam pad from Joe Rocket, and the overall dimensions are ever so slightly larger than the foam insert. I had to fold one section onto itself to make it fit into the pocket, but its in there nice a snug.
It definitely has some weight to it, and the jacket is now noticeable heavier, but hey, this is possibly the best back protector you can get on the market right now, so don't skimp on safety.
Is it also stiffer than the foam (duh! its not useless foam!) so be aware of that.
No sweaty back as of yet, but its only early spring, so we'll see come summer time!
