Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro for Dainese
Adds some significant weight, and cuts airflow, but DOES feel safer
Kind of crazy that ZERO back protection comes with the Dainese airframe jacket. This offers a lower cost alternative to Dainese, and is more flexible.
It does add a noticeable amount of weight, and while designed to allow air flow it still impacts the flow in the back of the jacket.
Still, the whole reason I put up with wearing a jacket in Texas heat is for the safety, and I believe this adds significantly to the overall safety of the jacket.
I had to wait a long time for it to come back in stock, and even then Revizilla's auto-notify never let me know it was available. But overall Rev-z is great and my sole source for gear.

Fits well in Dainese Air Frame
This pad is well made and provides good ventilation. I originally tried the Dainese Shield Air G level 2 back protector, but found it difficult to install, heavy, and unatractively bulky. This pad is comfortable with a low profile. It seems like it was made for the Dainese Air Frame. Also, I really appreciated the help I received from the staff at Revzilla, and exchanging the pads was easy.

Overall I am very happy with this back protector. The pocket in the back of my jacket, Avro, is a little too big and the back protector has to be adjusted to get it centered. Even with this minor issue I am very happy I bought it.

Great alternative to Dainese Wave G
Great back protector. I bought the Medium (G2) for my size 44 Dainese Spedio jacket and it fit perfectly. Benefits over the Wave G are cheaper, better protection, and reusable. Does add some weight to the jacket but I don't notice it much while wearing. Doesn't flow a whole lot of air but I'm not sure how it compares to the Wave G in that respect. Overall airflow in the jacket is still excellent, even for hot days.

I bought the Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro for my Dianese Avro textile jacket (which is awesome btw), and glad I did. I certainly add quite a bit of protection, and makes my ride feel safer.
I will say, however, that the BackPad Insert Pro feels a little small in the jacket, meaning that it moves around a little bit. That being said the thing is not going anywhere once the jacket is one.

Best bang for the buck. Goes great with Dainese Air-Frame
I had just recently purchased the Dainese Air Frame jacket and was looking for a cheaper alternative to the Dainese branded back protector and found this. The protection is the same CE level 2 rating but this one was reusable if you were to ever go down. The Dainese branded back protectors were for 1 time use only and would crumple on impact according the the product page. Airflow is great on this and its flexible so you can wear it and seat down without a humpback. I would recommend this product for anyone looking for a back protector for their Dainese jacket.

A bit heavy for the jacket, but as long as it really protects...not much to say
It looks a bit too bulky for this jacket, but I think it is the best alternative in the market right now for protection and that is my priority.

Light yet offers good protection
The product isn't as bulky and doesn't give that turtle shell look with my jacket like the dainese g2 back protector did. I don't even notice it anymore. I might get a second one for my other jacket.
