Icon D3O Back Protector Insert
Fits just right!
In order to have all protectors in my new Kathmandu Jacket from D3o material, I decided to replace the OEM temper foam back protector with this one, after checking measures I decided to risk a little and ordered, no mistake, the Icon fits right in place, hope neve need to write a review on how good it is on a crash!
Can't say why Firstgear decided to go for D3o on shoulders and arm and stay with temper foam on the back, this back protector adds little to the Jacket's cost ordered at the same time.

The mens size fits a Triumph Mia Textile Jacket
Very please to find that a Men's Icon D3O back protector fits in a new Triumph brand Mia textile jacket (size medium women's jacket). That makes this a total bargain price!
This is also the same size and type that is provided in the Klim men's Overland jacket. I've already got a few months in that jacket myself so I know it's a good and comfortable product.

Great product for the price
Purchased this for a replacement of the foam back protector in a icon Anthem mil-spec mesh jacket, it is about an inch shorter but it does fit well and will offer more protection than the foam back protector that came with the jacket.

Perfect upgrade to flimsy foam back protector.
I decided to upgrade all of the armor in my Scorpion Helix jacket. I ordered the elbow, shoulder, and back protectors. The are so comfortable and the jacket fits better and makes me feel safer. I trust D3o armor more than the standard protection in the jacket. Much better fit and great airflow.

I bought the women's size as an upgrade to the foam back pad in my girlfriend's Icon Contra Speed Queen jacket. She wears a Medium.
It definitely fits in the provided pocket, but it is about 3 inches too short top to bottom. Unfortunately, this leaves a large unprotected area approximately down to between her shoulder blades.
We have decided to use both pads at once for now and to hope we never have to test it in a crash.
I have attached a picture with the D3O back pad over top of the foam pad inside the jacket. The foam pad is placed where it would be if it was inside the pocket in the jacket.

Fits well into the jacket we bought.
Fits well into the Joe Rocket Phoenix 5.0 jacket we bought our 18-year-old rider. We truly have no idea how it well it protects, and we hope we never have to find out. It is certainly more substantial (denser) foam than the protector insert that came with the jacket. (By the way, he loves the jacket.)

I have this in my Firstgear Kilmanjaro jacket and it fits well. DOesn't feel too bulky, and the weight is actually kinda' comforting to me.

Works great for Shift Air Avenger jacket
I bought this because I wanted CE-rated protection for my back. I have a Shift Air Avenger jacket and this Icon back protector was about as close as I could find in measurements to the original foam protector (16 1/4" x 10"). The Shift jacket back protector pocket has just enough stretch to it that allows the Icon back protector to fit without trimming. I did have to open up some of the holes of the protector, like others have mentioned, but it's not a big deal. I feel a little bit more confident in my gear now.
