Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro
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!

Great replacement armor
Bought to share between my Sedici and Joe Rocket jackets. Thicker than stock so if your jacket is already tight...this may make your jacket fit too tight to wear.

Works with Triumph Jacket
This back prodector was recommended to me on the Triumph 675 forum. I checked it's measurements against the built in holder in my jacket and it was going to be snug but looked like it should work. Turns out the measurements are VERY accurate and this protector fit in my jacket well.
I can't speak much to it's strength or durability yet but it certainly seems tough. Very steadily made and seems incredibly rugged. It is made of several layers, all perforated so I also expect a great airflow.
Thanks to Revzilla for another easy transaction!

I bought this as a replacement for my Joe Rocket mesh riding jacket. The fit was perfect and quality of the product was evident when I opened the package.
I am very pleased and since I have been riding with the back insert now for several weeks, I don't even notice it. I am sure it will provide great protection if ever needed. Highly recommended!

Excellent, fits Dririder jacket
I bought this back protector to replace the foam insert of a Dririder Vortex Adventure jacket (Australia).
It's thicker than I expected and was worried about being too hot of uncomfortable, but can't even feel it with the jacket on (kept reaching with my hand to check if it was still there).
This is some serious protection, hope I never get to test it but feel much better knowing that it's there. Absolutely love it.
