Just Buy It!!!!
This is just a great back protect guy just buy. The only way i can describe this beast is by saying it's thick and very study memory foam back protector. It molds with you as you ride without compromising protection with bend. I did unfortunately get to test this back protector. I was do 46 MPH and i low sided trying to be Rossi, thank God it was on my ninja 300 and not on my R6. But when I low sided i rolled like 5 times but I didn't feel a thing, but i still went to the hospital to make sure my spine was okay and the doctor said i was completely fine. He said that I must've been wearing a back protector because he said rolling on my back at 46MPH just one time would crippled my back without it, Thank God and Forcefield for saving my back!

Definitely a must for your riding jacket
I ordered a Type A size Small to fit my XL Alpinestars - T-GP Plus Jacket and it fits fine. Looks more flexible than the Alpinestars protection options and also provides a higher CE rating as well. Its design incorporates a lot of perforations so airflow should be improved versus the Alpinestars options, which look to me more rigid and thick.

Definitely recommend adding this to any riding jacket as the foam included by default is really flimsy and not for riding protection.

Great upgrade
I got shape A size small. I replaced the cheap foam backpad in my scorpion drafter jacket size medium. My jacket now has all CE rated armor. The forcefield back pad is very stout. It is heavier than foam and does add noticeable weight to the jacket. The shape is almost exactly the same as the foam piece it replaces so I am confident that it will be located properly at all times. After wearing the jacket a few times, it now has a feeling of much more protection. Revzilla price matched this item for me so it was a great buy and I would recommend it to anyone who still has the original foam pad in their riding jacket.

Great protection but too thick!
It's a great back protector but it's just a thicker version of the CE1 forcefield back protector. It put it in my jacket and it was like a book behind my back. Sure, it's probably the best back protection you will get but I think the CE1 version it's good enough and offers good protection/peace of mind. So I returned this one and got the CE level 1 of which I'm really happy with and it's not so thick.

Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro
I have two Joe Rocket jackets (Phoenix 5.0 Mesh and Leather Suzuki Superbike Replica) and I was looking for something to give me a l bit more protection than either jacket's stock back protector. Wow!!! what a difference, it fits perfectly into either jacket back protector pocket and the flexibility makes it fairly comfortable. Yes the Forcefield is a bit heavier but compared to the "shipping type foam" CE1-ish-(if that) unit that Joe Rocket provides, I find this up graded pad to be a physiological confidence builder. If you have ever spent any time on the track you get use to having the feeling of wearing a CE3 (or higher) full fledged separate back protector. This Forcefield product at the minimum gives a similar feeling of confidence while riding on the street, where in the unfortunate event you were to go down, this product would surely provide a higher level of protection.

Fits in an Alpinestars Jacket
I wanted better protection (CE2) in a jacket insert and ordered the Forcefield Pro Type A Medium for an Astars GP-R jacket size 52. The Forcefield fits well width wise and is just a little longer than the pocket but I was able to still secure the Velcro at the bottom opening of the pocket to retain the pad securely. Being CE2 and a little larger than the available Astars CE1 insert, I am more confident in the level of protection. Nice and comfy and molds to your shape very easily.

I also ordered the Astars Track Pants to go with the Jacket. If I decide to run the combo on the track, I can swap out the Forcefield back pad for the snap in Bionic Race which is longer than the Forcefield and has the interlocking panel "turtle shell" back.

Good CE replacement
This went into a Joe Rocket textile jacket (don't remember the make but it also fits a leather Blaster).

I first ordered a forcefield sport lite back protector but mis-judged the size (001) from the Joe Rocket literature, so be sure to check the size of the actual pad in your jacket. That being said, I replaced my order with the full CE level 2 (size 002) pad which fit just fine and gives me much more confidence.

It is very flexible although I take greater pains when I pack this into my hardside bags than I ever did with the OEM foam pad to keep from developing a fold.

It does appear to have more airflow as there is at least some porosity that with a OEM pad and having CE level 2 is just that much better..

Wish I'd had this upgrade to my armor when I went to CA Superbike School (although I didn't need it then).

Great airflow, fits better as time goes by.
I bought the shape B, size MD, to replace the foam pad in my Power Trip Mojave mesh jacket. The pad fits the protector pouch perfectly.

Although the pad was definitely stiff on initial installation, it has since seemed to form itself to 'fit' better; so well, in fact, that it's hardly noticeable when riding.

You'll have to let it air out for a few days as it smells a bit when first unwrapped. Once that's done, it emits no odors.

I recommend this pad highly!

Thankfully untested, but makes me feel safer
We wear armor for the same reason we have insurance, just in case the worst happens, and I would love it if this armor pad went untested for as long as possible.

That being said, as an addition to my leather, this is a really nice piece. It's thick and just handling it, you can practically feel the force disbursement in the material. It was a tight fit into the pocket of my jacket, but once it was in, I had no fear that it was going to go anywhere.

Holding the jacket with the pad installed feels a lot heavier, and I was briefly concerned that it would make the whole jacket just feel weighted down, but once I was wearing the jacket, I barely noticed the pad there anymore. The weight is distributed nicely and it mostly feels like I'm wearing an empty backpack over my jacket. It just doesn't weigh on you at all.

The air flow is really nice too. I have a perforated leather rather than vented, and the mesh of the back pad really helps to draw the air through the jacket. Also, because of it's stiffness, if you arch your back, you can create a nice breeze down your spine.

Comfortable, fits like a glove
Bought shape A, size small for my small Scorpion stinger jacket and it fits like a glove. Flows air better than the foam protector that came with the jacket. Jacket fits a bit snugger now, and is heavier, but the back protector molds itself to your back so within a couple of minutes I don't even notice it anymore. A little on the pricey side, but definitely a quality product. Worth it for the peace of mind.

To replace the weak pad in my Olympia Switchback mesh jacket. I know some alterations will be required, or possibly a new pouch by slitting part of the old pouch and sewing/Velcro in the new pouch.

Alan h on Jun 2, 2015
Hopefully I'll never have to find out how this protects under crash conditions. That said, the construction and overall feel of this back protector gives me confidence it will protect me when and if the time comes. If you don't have a back pad you're simply exposing yourself too sever injury, this is a low cost way of adding additional protection to your spine during impact and/or sliding down the road on your back.

What size will fit a medium tourmaster intake 3?
A shopper on Jul 18, 2015
It is not clear which side of the insert should face your back when inserted in the jacket? This question was asked before but the answers are not definitive.
Marcelo Y on Jun 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The side in the photo goes to the outside. The yellow honeycomb like structure faces the outside. I have 2 of these in seperate jackets and on the one like the photo it is fairly obvious; on the other both sides are more similar looking.
I remember it being fairly obvious when I installed them. Just be very sure of the size and type with these. I had to return 2 before getting it right for both jackets.
I highly reccoment this product BTW.
I was wondering how comfortable this insert is. Does it flex enough from shoulder to shoulder ( lengthwise) to conform to your back? My last protector felt like I had a 2x4 stuck in my jacket, ugh. Had to take it out.
Joe V on Jun 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I honestly don't feel it when I have it in my leathers so it's a tight fit. Also, it's not going to reach your shoulders. It's basically going to fit in between your scapula and protect your spine. It does confirm to your back though in terms of curving with your jacket, but it won't touch your shoulders.
Im thinking of getting the Firstgear Mesh Tex jacket in a medium. Question is.... Icon D30 or Forcefield for a back protector upgrade? If its the Forcefield, which size would fit this jacket?
Matthew S on May 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Matthew,

I am NOT an expert in back protection pads by any means however I can say that the forcefield pad is outstanding. a few months back I was on my bike when I was struck and hit by a car. fortunately, I had just upgraded my back pad to the forcefield as I was throw quite a distance landing square on my back. An ambulance took me to the ER where I was throughly examined by the surgeons. Although bruised and sore I had sustained no serious injuries (lucky? No, fortunate? Absolutely!!!) the surgeons were amazed at how well my safety equipment performed and took note of what i was wearing. So for me the forcefield pads are a must from now on. i strongly recommend them. I hope this helps take care and good riding.

I'm contemplating on purchasing a River Road Baron Mesh Jacket in a medium. I'm about 5'7 weighing around 155. This jacket just has memory foam so for obvious reason I want to upgrade it. Would the Forcefield 001 fit this jacket?
Kameryn W on Dec 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Perfect fit for my Joe Rocket Phoenix jacket - I believe I have the XL or 2XL - but it wears great.
I'm surprised any gear would have memory foam; in an impact that stuff acts like a solid - that's why manufacturers don't have memory foam helmets.
What would provide a better level of protection this or Icon's Styker for my contra jacket?
Matthew M on May 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I love my forcefield 001 padding with my Field sheer jacket. I believe the plastic nature of the Stryker vest will not hold up to multiple impacts sustained from a spill.

On the flip side, the Stryker vest can be used under various jackets, and will not shift on you during an off.

Have you looked in the the Forcefield Flite suit? Its pricy, but well worth the $$$. Not to mention it can be worn again after an impact.
What shape/size would best fit a Medium Joe Rocket Alter Ego 3.0?
David M on Apr 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi David,

Not sure about the jacket. I think the best bet is to pull out the old back support and measure it with a tape measure, and then converting it to metric mm, then find the appropriate size. Dont forget, the FF back insert will be thicker than the factory piece. But definitely upgrade it.
I have the SPIDI Ace Jacket size 42, which size back protector should I get? If I like to upgrade the Shoulder and Elbow to Forcefield also, is there a specific size for this jacket?
Vinko T on Nov 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello, I don't have any Spidi jackets but I would suggest you measure the back protector pocket on your jacket and compare those dimensions available for the back protectors from Forcefield you are looking at.
Which Forcefield Pro CE L2 fits the ICON Patrrol Jacket?
A shopper on Aug 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Measure that ish, and select the one that is appropriate. Some Mesh holder has a little give, so select accordingly. Take out the old foam insert, measure it, and convert it to metric (MM). keep in mind the FF inserts are about 3/4" thick, so be sure to account for that.

Maxim K on Jun 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: REV'IT! Airwave Jacket will work perfectly with forcefield and forcefield pro inserts size 001.
