Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro for Dainese
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.

Better than Dianese brand
I like Forcefield armor, and especially this piece for my specific jacket because it fits flatter and more to my body than the Dianese brand armor. Great product, Revzilla with great service as expected, thank you.
I also asked a question about this product on the youtube channel and it was answered immediately. Thank you.

Good upgrade to OEM
The material is comprised of a honeycomb-type structure, which is strong and fairly lightweight, yet flexible. Once I placed it in the jacket, I forget I'm wearing it within seconds. Of course, it does make your jacket feel a bit tighter since it's going to be thicker than whatever came with your jacket, which is usually lightweight foam. A great safety upgrade.
Sometimes it falls over to one side and needs readjustment. It would be nice if the manufacturers came up with some kind of universal snap or hook system to keep these in place and interoperate across brands.

Great armor .
I decided to upgrade my back protector with Forcefield because I have the Forcefield pro pants , which I wear it every time I ride , and I am really impressed with their stuff . It is a serious piece of armor for those looking for protection on impact areas . I strongly recommend it .

Seems like a good purchase.
I have tried both sizes in my Dainese Street Rider jacket size 46. It was recommended I get the G1 but I found it to have too much room to move around in the back pocket. The G2 appears to be a much better fit by covering a significantly larger surface while still being easy to insert.
