Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro for Dainese
Fits perfect in my Dainese Ducati jacket
Good fit, protection and price. It makes my jacket heavier, but they all do. One thing I did notice riding is that there is not much ventilation on my back and my back seems to get warmer when it is in my jacket, but not to a point that it is unbearable.

Great product for a reazonable cost.
This product its great, fits right into my dainese Rapier Jacket, it's no a hard material but feels better build than others i've seen, at least for city or short riding it's a great choice

If your wanting to upgrade your armor and your jacket accepts it. Forcefield is the way too go. Solid construction and I just feel safer.

Better than Wave G2
This is much better than the Wave G2, it does not make you look like you have a hunch back while wearing your Dainese Jacket and it offer level 2 protection vs level one of the Wave G2.

Fits the description and into the Dainese jacket
The Dainese Ducati Flow Jacket (size 54) came foc when I ordered my Hypermotard. I was surprised to see that the jacket didn't even come with a stock backplate, so I scouted around for a suitable backplate. Between the Dainese Wave G and Forcefield backplates, I chose the latter given the higher level of protection for slightly more in cost.
Standard fit into existing slot at the back of jacket. Can't really feel the plate itself, given that it kind of conforms to the shape of the back. However, the one noticeable feature of the backplate is the weight. It is quite heavy to hold but once you put the jacket on, you don't really notice it.
Re protection, I hope I will never have to test its effectiveness. Cheers.

Put it into the outer back protector pocket, upside-down
It took me a little while of screwing around with this to figure out that there are actually two pockets for back protectors in Dainese jackets, separated by a single layer of unsuspecting mesh fabric. If you put this into the inner pocket - the one closest to your body - it will flop around and you will wonder if you got the right size. The inner pocket is for the Shield Air G1/G2 back protector, which is larger. You put the egg-shaped back protectors (this one, and the Dainese "Wave G") into the *outer* of the two pockets, with the narrow end of the armor facing upward, and it will fit snugly like that.
Other than wanting to share that tip with other owners and potential owners of this, my review is as follows:
-Highly protective, though maybe not as protective as the Dainese ones because no crumpling hard plastic (this is just my guess).
-Unlike the Dainese ones, though, by design, you can re-use this after a crash.
-Flexible, comfortable, easy to wear in a jacket casually. This is the selling point. Dainese back protectors (at least the Shield Air G2 I tried) are 2" thick - which is why I got this. It's comfortable, and it doesn't change the fit of the jacket when in use.

Pricey, heavy, but protective.
Not much to say here; it's a top of the line Forcefield back protector for a Dainese jacket. It fit my Dainese Shotgun perfectly. I tried to use it in a Tourmaster Coaster jacket that I also have, however, and it was a little too big for the back protector pocket--if you want a Forcefield back pad that fits multiple jackets, you should either measure the back pocket on your non-Dainese jacket very carefully, or get one of Forcefield's generic pads.

Great product, but small sizing
I purchased this BackPad Insert Pro (medium) for a Dainese Zen-Evo size 52/42 jacket and it was too small in both length and width - it slid around inside the pocket. However, it fit perfectly in an older Dainese Trax size 52/42 jacket. Recommend measuring your jacket insert pocket and then ordering the appropriately sized protector and not necessarily the one labeled "for Dainese." Otherwise, this is an excellent product and, like other Forcefield protectors, is not really noticeable while riding and doesn't add appreciably to the weight of a leather jacket.
