Nice product, good value, fit well in my existing jacket..
PIcked up the Forcefield lite back insert to replace the thin dual density pad I originally bought for my Triumph brand (stockton) leather jacket. I got the B-style Med size. It fit in the back pocket perfectly. Overall it's not too bulky and, (while I hope to never have to test it on the road), if feels like a significant upgrade in protection while remaining relatively thin.

The jacket does not bulge out and it fit well to the body. I can hardly tell it's there. I originally bought the " Forcefield Pro" insert from another vendor because I liked the level 2 CE rating, but It was way to bulky for this type of jacket and was noticeable so I sent it back. I will say, If I was racing I would buy the Pro in a heart beat. It was a nice piece. The forcefield line seems like a high quality product. I will buy more pieces from them in the future.

Great Level 1 Back Protector Insert
This back protector is the most flexible I own compared to my Sas-tec, Wave G, AStar Bionic, Knox TP2 and Forcefield Pro fitted to various jackets. Granted some of them are level 2 whereas this Sport Lite is Level 1 only.

Compared to Forcefield's own Pro insert, this one is lighter and much more flexible because the edges of the different layers are free to slip between each other. On the Pros the edges are held together.

The weight is average among level 1s, but you're not likely to tell the difference in weight when you're wearing it, unless your jacket is very very light weight. Again, it's best strength is it's flexibility. I held one end of the back protector horizontal and the protector bends downward almost 60 degrees at the other end under it's own weight, that's how flexible it is. It totally contours to my back, whatever my posture is.

Despite what the pictures would suggest, this insert is not perforated.

Tourmaster upgrade
For those wondering about options for Tourmaster...I ordered the Type B - Medium as an upgrade for my Tourmaster Air Intake 2 jacket thinking I would have to modify/cut to fit. Much to my surprise this size fit w/o any modification. Armor is very comfortable but I have only used in 75-80 degree weather so far. My protection rating of Good was based on the item being CE Level 1 as opposed to any real-life experience. Excellent protection IMO would be level 2.

Great back armor/perfect upgrade for my jacket
After doing a bunch of research on back armor I decided to go with Forcefield. The 001 fits perfect into my jacket and offers great protection while being flexible and lightweight. Just make sure you take good measurements to ensure you order the right one for your jacket. Happy New Year!

Everything I looked for.
I bought a Built jacket not long ago, and it came with foam back insert. I knew it needed a replacement, and these were the features I was looking for: It had to be a good fit; It had to be light w/ good air flow; It had to be in a reasonable price range.

And this was it. The fit was snug, and it was light yet I could tell it'd definitely provide far more superior protection than the foam insert. (Though I prefer to never test it under real situation) And the price was just right.

And as always, great support by Revzilla team!

I like it
I bought the Forcefield Lite back protector (001) to put in my Joe Rocket mesh jacket instead of the foam wafer that came in it. The Forcefield back protector feels much more substantial then the foam pad. The foam pad was lighter and flowed more air, however, I believe the trade off is worth the greater protection. The Forcefield is tolerable, but in hot weather, your back is going to sweat where it's touching you. If it's really hot, I will arch my back a bit to open up some air space between my skin and the protector to get some airflow in. After a couple rides with it, I don't even think about it. It's just part of my jacket. It also contours to my back better than the foam pad ever did. One really bad thing... it smelled horrendous out of the package. It smelled like a tire. I hung it outside for 3 days to air it out, but it still stinks. I've been riding with it for a few months now, and it stinks a lot less, but it still stinks. All that being said, I'm happy enough with it that I'm considering the other Forcefield armor shoulders, elbows, knees for replacements in the rest of my jacket and pants.

Good protection and not too stiff
It's hard for me to review this back protector because it hasn't had to protect me. But it's very flexible and comfortable so you hardly know it's there. As long as it holds up like it's supposed to be I'll be very happy.

As for fit make sure you measure your existing protector. I used the Type B small in an AGV Willow jacket size 40 and it's a little less than an inch short longways and sideways but the next size up is too big. This is a very flexible protector so it can bend to fit through a smaller hole pretty easily.

Worth a few extra $$
I chose this product over a less expensive CE Level 1 alternative after speaking on the phone with one of RevZilla's helpful representatives, and am satisfied with my choice. In addition to Forcefield's reputation for quality protective products, he said this protector would feel less like a "slug on my back" (good description!) than the less expensive solid foam protector that I was originally considering. This weekend I rode 150 miles over two days in the SoCal high desert's 90 degree heat and have no real complaints regarding this product's ventilation. Probably the only way it could ventilate better is by not being there! As much as I didn't want to pay the higher cost of this product, I will concede that the ventilation alone makes it worth the money.

A few other notes:
- Type B, Size 001 fits perfectly in my size Medium BILT riding jacket.
- This product does seem a bit heavy -- perhaps more so than alternative products with same CE rating -- so I gave it a 4/5 on the "comfort" scale.
- Product had a fairly strong PVC plastic odor when first removed from packaging. It has mostly dissipated, but is still noticeable at times. I don't really mind it, but is definitely something to consider for those who are sensitive to plastic odors.
- Much better looking than comparable foam inserts. Too bad it's hidden inside my jacket...

I wanted to increase the amount of back protection that came standard in the Joe Rocket Ion Jacket. I hope I'll never need to try it but after seeing the video of that guy getting run over by another bike while wearing this stuff... I thought for under $50 it'd be a good investment. Anything that I can do to prevent my back from further problems is a good idea in my book. I chatted with a Revzilla Gear Geek & he told me that this was the correct style (001) to fit the Ion jackets.

Great back insert. Love it. I got it to replace the stock back protector that came with the Joe Rocket 4.0 Atomic Jacket. The Forcefield protector is thicker than the stock pad and it offers better protection, but the thing that really sets it apart is the flexibility. Because it is so flexible, I often forget that its in the jacket, which is a far cry from the stock protector because every time I stand up with the stock protector in, I know it's there.

Which would best fit a Cortech GX Sport Air 4.0 in XL?
A shopper on Feb 22, 2016
What size back protector do I need for my Dainese Bruce Jacket size 52?
A shopper on Sep 12, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I'm answering my own question. I bought the Force Field SPORT LITE Back Protector in size 003. I didn't want the Force Field PRO Back Protector specifically made for Dainese because it's thicker. I wanted something lighter, thinner, and comfortable when sitting in a chair. I chose this size because it's the closest to the size listed for the Dainese WAVE Back Protector. Dainese also has a SHIELD AIR back protector which is slightly bigger. Anyways, when installing the Sport Lite, I realized that my jacket has 2 sleeves in the back protector pocket (a smaller sleeve for the Wave, and a bigger sleeve for the Shield Air). The Sport Lite in the bigger sleeve makes the back protector stand a little leaned over. The Sport Lite installed upside down in the smaller sleeve is an excellent fit; almost perfect. This is what I recommend for other riders.
Hi guy's

What exactly are the dimensions of this product in inches? I would like to replace the one in my Harley Davidson jacket.
A S on Dec 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Forcefield's size chart converted to inches:

Insert Height Widest Point
001 385 mm (15.2 inches) 285 mm (11.2 inches)
002 445 mm (17.5 inches) 340 mm (13.4 inches)
003 425 mm (16.7 inches) 270 mm (10.6 inches)
006 360 mm (14.2 inches) 240 mm (9.4 inches)
010 430 mm (16.9 inches) 265 mm (10.4 inches)
011 500 mm (19.7 inches) 265 mm (10.4 inches)

We've purchased the 001 (for a RS Taichi jacket) and 010 (for a Dainese G2 jacket). I measured the 001 at 14+3/4 height and 11+1/8 width, and the 010 at 16+3/4 height and 10+1/2 width; so pretty close to what they list.

We like the super-lite protectors, though thankfully haven't tested them yet.
I want to upgrade my Fly FLux Air Mesh jackeht with Forcefield armour. Looking for back, shoulder, and elbows. Which product (flat or pre-formed)? Will this armour fit my jacket? The armour looks too big.
Lewis S on Jul 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I bought the Forcefield back protector for a newly purchased Dainese perforated leather jacket. I wanted a flexible and breathable back protector and I am very happy with the Forcefield armour. It would be a good idea to call the revzilla team and ask them about the fit for your specific jacket and their suggestion for your particular riding style. The Revzilla techs are very knowledgeable about the products they sell and will attempt to guide you to a product that is geared to you.
What Forcefield back protector fits a Cortec GX-Air?
A shopper on Feb 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I don't have your jacket. I bought Forcefield Lite for Joe Rocket/PowerTrip. But if your current back pad looks like the 001 to the right, buy the 002. I know this doesn't sound right, but I've ordered again and had to double check what I bought the first time - it's 002. Ken
Which one will fit my dainese avro textil 46?
A shopper on Oct 5, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The Forcefield Sport Lite Back Protector Insert will not fit your Dainese Avro Textile Jacket. We recommend checking out the Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro for Dainese, which is specifically designed to be used in Dainese jackets.
Hi,
I was wondering which / size shape is the closest to a Knox® Advance X pad?
My jacket is a Rev'it Monti, XL.
Thanks!
James V on Dec 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I don't know about fitting the Rev'it Monti, but my Rev'it Tornado (large) has plenty of room for this protector. The thing I found though (which may not bother you) it is heavier than the worthless foam back protector the jacket came with, and when you have your jacket partially unzipped, the weight pulls the jacket back and down. When zipped up fully, it's fine. This was a small trade off for the extra protection.
What is the weight of it?
Is it lighter than a D30 protector?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's about the same weight as a D3O protector of equal size and thickness. My wife has this one in one of her jackets and a D3O they are slightly different shape but essentially the same weight
How do I determine the true fit for my Harley Davidson jacket? I am a large in the jacket and I am 5'8 in height.

I have a Triumph Mesh Jacket. The Backpad (foam) is 16" x 14". If I get the type 2 (17.5" x 13.38"). I would need to shave off .75" from top AND bottom, Is this easily done? I would have .31 on each side width-wise to spare. Is there a picture of the TYPE 2 so I can use it to reference ? Thanks in advance.
A shopper on Mar 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It's a piece of cake to cut. In fact, there are actually 4 separate layers and each piece measures just a little from the others. As a lawyer, I would never suggest this, but I have split the 4 layer pad in 2, just to make it more flexible and cooler in the super hot, humid and long Louisiana Summer. Ken
