Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro for Dainese
Excellent protection for price
Installed this insert into my Dainese racing c2 leather jacket. The G2 size fit with no problems, but must say the edges where my shoulder blades press into do stick out from the back to give a slight "turtle shell" look. It says the back protector will conform to my back with body heat so am hoping the back protector will become less noticeable over time. Other than that this product feels solid and I definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a back protector that has a tough rubber feel instead of hard plastic for a reasonable price.

Better than the Wave G
I purchased this mainly for the multi-impact resistance and better fit as opposed to the wave g. It's far less bulky in my Dainese shotgun mesh and the air flow is consistent. Fit and comfort are nice, I went with the g1 size for the shotgun(size 50). The g2 would have been too large for the compartment. Since I haven't been down while wearing it, I can't comment on the protection, but it does feel secure and if an impact were to happen, I think it should do an adequate job dissipating the force.

This spine protector fit my Speed Racer jacket perfectly and is quite flexible. I hope to never test the durability. It's as comfortable as a racer cut jacket with armor is going to be but that being said the flexible nature is pretty comfortable. The air flow is of course somewhat blocked but is as good as can be. I like the force field better than the Dainese product.

I ordered the Medium (G2) for my Dainese Air Frame jacket size (size 48 euro) after returning the Dainese back protector. The Dainese back pad is about twice the thickness of this one and changed the fit of the jacket to a point where it was uncomfortable. Even though the Forcefield is thinner, it is much more dense so I think the protection is at least as good and possibly better. It is also more flexible and conforms to whatever position you are in.

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.
