Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro for Dainese
If you are looking for a good thick feeling back protector this is it. I bought the CE II rated so it is not thin and it is a tight fit, but that is a good thing it wont move around :) I put this in a Shift Diablo jacket, tight fit but that means it will not move around.

Very breathable, comfortable. I don't even notice it anymore

Larger size just squeezes into my Dainese Evo jacket and sits there comfortably. Gets a little hot on the warmer days, but otherwise you tend to forget it's there.

STINKS - terrible odor
Still too stinky to wear after air hanging for 2.5 weeks. It out-gasses a terrible chemical odor.
Honestly I need to wear some back protection in my jacket, but after 2.5 weeks of air hanging, this thing still stinks too much to wear. It looks like good quality and I'm sure it will be good once the smell dies down, but how long do I need to wait? 2 months? I'm having the same problem with the Dainese double chest protectors I purchased. They are also line hanging and still stinking.
I'll update my review after the smell dies down enough to start wearing it.

Very Flexible for the Size
I got a medium (G2) for my size 46 Dainese Laguna EVO perforated leather jacket. It fits snug which is a good thing (it seems to fit best in the first pocket of the two in this jacket, nearest to the rider).
Air flow is good, I have no complaints. I removed the logo and tag for better airflow (they're no trivial size).
It's very flexible for its size. The hanger loop on top is a nice touch. It's about 0.5 kg (1.1 lbs) on my scale.
I did have one issue, it's prone to rotate within the jacket. I added velcro to the bottom, as well as my jacket (soft side on jacket so it wouldn't catch on the liner when there's no back protector in). This worked well.

Good back protection, but not for summer riding
The low profile, body conforming, back protector will be a good option for cooler weather riding. My primary consideration was to use it with my D. Air Frame jacket for summer riding. With its advertised perforations I thought it would vent well. The problem is that the rubberized surface that lies against your back creates a clammy feeling and moisture is not released. If they had designed it with vertical cannels to minimize the surface contact it would have been great.
There is also an issue with the odor being released from the product. After 3 weeks, it still has a strong chemical smell.

Everything I would expect from an insertable back protector
Fits well in my Dainese Spedio D Dry jacket (size 48.) It feels like it is solidly constructed and I have no doubt it will serve its purpose if I were to go down. It has some weight to it, and it sits low enough in the jacket pocket that it interacts with my belt/pants. Sometimes I need to shrug my shoulders to get it to match up better down low, but for the coverage of protection I feel I get with this, that is a minor nuisance. The airflow is ok, pretty much what I expected, but it definitely makes the jacket ride warmer. It comes with an odor...but it has almost completely faded away after a couple weeks of minimal riding. Very happy with this purchase from Revzilla.

Followed Revzilla recommendation for a perfect fit in my Dainese Ducati Corse jacket. The medium is just right in my Euro 54.
Yes,there is a strong plastic/chemical smell when you first open the packaging ,but it goes away by the time you've worn it for a few hours.
