Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro for Dainese
Much more comfortable than the Dainese protector
When I bought my Dainese Alien jacket, I forgot to upsize (per instructions) for the back protector. As a result, when I put in the Dainese Shield Air G Level 2 Back Protector (which is quite large and semi-rigid), the jacket became almost uncomfortably tight. This protector is much more flexible and a little thinner. As a result, the jacket fits like it should and I still get level 2 protection.

Comfortable, fits well into Dainese jackets
I can't speak for it's actual impact resistance or durability, but forcefield armor was highly recommended to me even before I saw it on revzilla. It is a fair bit heavier than the Wave G2 I have in my other jacket, but feels like it conforms better to the body. Also, it fit with no problems into both my jackets (Nevada perf and D Stormer). Air flow feels about the same, too.

This may not be a complete review...
...until I crash.
Pending that event, here's what I know. It plays well with my Dainese Alien jacket like it should. It goes unnoticed when I am underway on the bike. I can't ask any more from it other than to help attenuate impact forces, but I haven't tried that... yet.
One bit of funniness: it smells like atrazine.

I hesitated to order because of the reviews saying it was heavy and bulky, I don't agree with those reviews, it's a little heavier then the foam that came with my Joe rocket jacket but not by much not much at all, it is a little stiff, but but seems that it would provide good protection, it's not as bulky as I thought judging by other reviews. Honestly for the amount of extra protection it provides its definitely beyond worth it! I also ordered the klim Viper pro (both ce 2) for my icon jacket, the Forcefield is a bit stiffer but also seems like it's a better made more durable product, if I had to do over I'd put Forcefield in both jackets hands down, I feel better protected by the the Forcefield. Definitely recommend

better than dainese g1 or g2 protector
ive recently purchased the forcefield back insert 007 to put into the back protector pocket of my stripes evo for some additional protection. i recommend the forcefield protector over the dainese g1 and g2, as the forcefield back insert is lower profile, has better air flow, shape adjusts to your body (your body heat allows the armor to change shape for optimal comfort), and unlike the g1 and g2 it is not "one time use" only.
regarding sizing: my dainese stripes evo jacket is a size 48 and i got the medium (g2) sized forcefield back insert (007). when you put it in the pocket you put it in with the narrow side of the insert pointing up.

Awesome back protector.
Love this back protector. I use it in my Dainese Speed Naked leather jacket and my Dainese Air Frazer textile/ leather jacket. It fits perfect in both. No shifting around and it provides great back support for multi hour riding comfort. I've had it for close to a year now and there is no wear and tear on it.
Very happy with this back protector.

Fits Dainese Super Speed Textile perfectly.
I bought this for my new Dainese Super Speed Textile jacket, and I don't have a single regret over the purchase. The jacket has two sleeves for back protectors; this one fits the inner-most (smaller) sleeve perfectly, but must be inserted upside-down. (Its design allows this without compromising its effectiveness - confirmed by both Revzilla and Forcefield representatives.)
Compared to the Dainese protector (which is $10 more), this back protector is slightly heavier but breathes much better, and has a slimmer design, making my jacket fit perfectly with it installed.
For a back protector, it breathes quite well. Obviously not the same as no protector at all, but definitely the best that I've tried so far.
Like I said, I have no regrets over this purchase and will likely stick with Forcefield next time I'm in the market for a new jacket and protector.

Good Level 2 Back Protector
Fits like Dainese's own back protectors, comfortably flexible if not a little heavy. This is a level 2 so there is a little bit of a trade off.
