Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro for Dainese
To begin, I must say that I do as much research as possible on products before I buy. That said, after months of watching every review on every back protector from multiple sites, I went with the Forcefield Pro insert from Revzilla. It provides the best overall protection while being temperature insensitive (I live in Vegas but take trips to the 4 corner states), lightweight, low profile, multiple-impact resistant, and well within budget.
Shipping was surprisingly fast. The insert in person is actually quite light, and speaks of quality. As another reviewer stated; it smells chemically at first, but this fades within a week of riding.
Riding with it on for the first day, you notice it's there, but as the day goes on it forms to your back shape and becomes even less intrusive than before. Airflow is not negatively affected and neither is comfort. Even while looking in the mirror with the jacket on, you don't see the outline of a back protector. I predict that after another week, I won't even notice it.
I will say you don't need to size up your jacket purchase with this, but you would have to with, say, the Pro Sub 4.
It's a fantastic product, and I wholeheartedly recommend it.

Great Protection Upgrade
I have purchased three of these level 2 back armor upgrades from Forcefield for my two AGV SOLARE summer jackets and my winter Scorpion Passport Suit. The pad is very thick but fits easily in the pad pocket. It is also stiff at first, but some riding conforms it to your natural back curve while in the saddle. I am confident this upgrade will help protect my back if and when it is needed.

Good product at a decent price
You're getting CE level II armor for a pretty good price compared to some other manufacturers. I have worn it for a few weeks now in my dainese leather and have no complaints. I've read that some find it on the heavy side but I disagree. It's very flexible and not so heavy that it will move around on you. Honestly, I tend to forget I'm even wearing it while riding. It's slim enough that it's not all that visible either. Hopefully I'll never have to attest for it's durability but it seems like it would do it's job. It was recommended by the guys from revzilla and I have no complaints

Comfortable in my Dainese jacket.
Hard to judge the protection since I haven't fallen in it (knock on wood). It's flexible and comfortable when I'm wearing it in the jacket. Air flow's OK. But I'm wearing a leather jacket in 80 degree weather. I'm going to get sweaty.

Just what you'd expect
This replacement back armor is exactly what you'd expect from Dainese. Fits perfectly in my wife's Dainese Air Flux coat, has some air flow (as much as can be expected from back armor), and is a great increase in protection. Hasn't been tested yet, but it makes the mostly mesh jacket more protective.

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.
