REVIT Seesoft Back Protector Insert

The revolutionary REVIT See Soft CE-Level 2 back protector is designed to absorb multiple impacts without compromising on comfort, ventilation or freedom of movement. The highly impact-resistant blend of Nitrille and Polynorbornene rubber results in a memory foam that is multi-impact rated and CE Certified to the highest level of prEN 1621-2:2010 level 2.

In the case of severe angular impact, the individual Memory Foam layers will shift relative to one another, resulting in impact dispersion over a larger effective surface area and therefore minimizing the energy that is transmitted to the spine and back. The Seesoft back protector performs extremely consistently in all weather conditions and is unaffected by temperature ranges from -4° F to +104° F (-20° C to +40° C).

Most REV'IT jackets are designed to accommodate a Seesoft CE Level 2 back protector insert. Newer jackets will have a marking on the protector pocket that indicates the matching type and size of the protector.

For additional information, please see the Seesoft Back Protector Insert Fit Chart or follow the sizing in the description on the product's page.

Works great with Aerostich gear, too!
I'm waiting for RevZilla to be re-stocked on the KN-106 so I can order one for my Ignition 2 jacket. In the mean time I ordered a Seesoft to try with my Aerostich Roadcrafter and Darien jackets. Aerostich sells an adapter sleeve in order to use its "Transit" back pad (actually a SAS-TEC) in its other jackets, and the Seesoft ST-12 fits right into the size Medium sleeve like it was made to do so. The Seesoft is the most comfortable back protector I've worn of the 4 different brands I've tried; I know it's there, but barely. Other protectors have either dug into my neck or put pressure on the back of my helmet or made me feel like I have a stick strapped to my back while in the riding position. No plans on personally assessing its protective qualities, so I'm putting my faith in the CE L-2 lab testing and results. The Airflow rating is relative to other protectors I've tried, which flow little to no air; the Seesoft flows "some" small amount of air, but it's a trade-off for spine protection. I'm happy to have finally found a back protector I can live with on a daily basis, and can't wait until I can buy one for my Ignition 2.

Exelente protección y precio
Cómodo,liviano,económico y Superseguro

El único inconveniente es q hace escapar menos aire por la espalda disminuyendo el flujo un poco. Supongo q es el precio de la seguridad.

ATGATT. Cuz your spine is important
Bought this for a Rev'it GT-R Air Textile Jacket. It does obstruct airflow to your back, but it's not too bad. Really, the trade off of having protection for impacts across your spine is worth the extra heat. Additionally, the armor makes your jacket look pretty cool. Safety is street cred.

Great Protection! Takes too much space!
I purchased the RevIt Airwave jacket last summer. I wanted the Seesoft protector at the time, but it was backordered. I purchased the jacket size based on the video and size chart. I received the jacket and it fit extremely well! I was very satisfied.
The Seesoft back protector arrived about 6 weeks later. I was very excited to put it into use. I could see how it would be comfortable and provide exceptional protection.
I installed it in the jacket. But wait! Something was wrong! The jacket had shrunk a size! The jacket that had fit perfectly, now felt like a sausagemeister! Unfortunately, too much time had use had passed for me to ask for the next larger jacket.
So, buyer beware. If you are going to buy the Seesoft protector, go up one jacket size when considering size!
It is very good protection. I recommend it! Just size your jacket appropriately!

Skeptical on intented protection.
The main reason I didn't rate this any better was that I was told and naturally expected it(KN 106)to not only fit into my Rev'It Tarmac leather jacket(size 52) but it should "fill" the entire back protector pocket which it does not. It's too small and leaves at least a 1 to 2 inch gap all around the upper back area. The shape isn't quite right for the Rev It Tarmac where as the ST version seems like it would fit better.However I cannot be sure until I actually order another one :-(
See attached image of it sitting on top of the temper foam pad the jacket came with.It's probably designed for the more recent line of Rev It jackets.

Added spinal protection on jackets for motorcycles works but can be warm in hot weather
I ordered this as replacement spine protection on a newer motorcycle jacket. Most of these jackets are provided with a foam pad as the OEM spine protection. So I wanted to upgrade to CE level protection. It is shaped well and covers most of my spinal area. It also fits into the jacket pocket with just a little moving around for position. The only drawback I can cite is that here in SoCal it can be a bit warm on some days when the sun is shining. It does have perforations to promote air flow, however it is heavier and thicker as is necessary to achieve the protection level. I don't see this as a drawback to order necessarily but just a result of the design. I would recommend this item.

Exactly what I needed
I was a little worried that having a substantial back protector would change the fit of my jacket, but that is not the case. I bought this for a Levante jacket, and I couldn't be happier. Air flow is still superb, and I feel safer.

Exactly As Expected
This protector fits my Rev'it Outback Jacket perfectly. Much needed improvement over the essentially useless foam cutout that came stock with the jacket. As a back protector goes, it works just fine:
It has a pretty slim profile so I forget that it's even there. It fits snugly into the jacket based on Rev'it's jacket model and sizing guide. No surprises there. I can't speak to its ventilation properties, as my jacket is not designed to vent in that area.
The material is flexible and contours to your body inside its jacket pocket, but becomes rigid upon impact. Of course, it's CE rated so it meets all of my requirements.
For what it is, I think it could have been a little cheaper. The different layers of the back protector are glued together such that the layers can lift up around the edges relative to one another. At first this may seem cheap, but this is intentionally designed so the layers can move and help dissipate energy in the event of a crash.
As far as perceived protection goes, the seesoft back protector meets my expectations. One must remember that in motorbike crashes, direct impacts to the spinal cord are incredibly rare and make up only a tiny fraction of sustained injuries. And some back injuries occur as a result of torsional forces, forcing the body to twist in a way that causes damage to the spine. A back protector alone can't mitigate that risk. But it certainly makes me feel better. Any gear is better than no gear, and on the day that something unlikely does happen, I want to be wearing gear.

alex l on Nov 4, 2016
I have a Revit Sand jacket (not the Sand 2). I see on the fitting chart that I should use a type KN size 65 Seesoft back protector. I do not see this size listed as an option. Is this size no longer available? Is there another type or size option that will fit?
A shopper on Feb 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I too ran into an issue with a protector that was slightly larger than the space on my Revit jacket. Kat from the showroom said I could just use the stock protector as a template and cut down the larger protector. Worked like a charm and is very comfortable.

Hi, I just ordered a Rev'it Redhook jacket in size 48. I was wondering if I buy a seesoft back protector rv insert should I go up one size on the jacket? How much space will the back protector take up? Never bought anything like this before so I have no experience of this.
A shopper on Apr 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: In my opinion, the back protector insert did not take up much room in my current riding jacket (Ignition 2), so for me there was no need to go up a size in order to accomodate the insert.

I did some quick research on the Redhook, and it looks like it can easily accomodate the insert since it is not a "race fit" jacket. I would stick with your current size and try the insert...if it feels restrictive you can always bump up to the next size jacket (returns with Revzilla are super easy).
Hope this helps!!!
Hi. Is this back protector safer than a SAS-TEC or a D3O equivalent? This one is also rated CE2, but the others have molecular technology, and this one looks like "just foam". Which one would you buy? Thx!
A shopper on Aug 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: When I bought my Rev'it jacket this was the only back insert available. If you have a choice I would definitely go D3O first, and SAS TEC second. Hope this helps.
I have a Revit Rebel Ladies Leather Jacket in size 36 , which size and type of back protector should I use?
A shopper on Mar 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Revit web site has the answer to this question, take a look. The back protector is top rate and you can't go wrong since the jacket and protector are made to fit each other.
Does the back protector need to be replaced after an accident? I recently had a hard landing on my back while travelling around 60 mph in my bike. The back protector worked great! It absorbed all the shock and I barely felt any of the impact on my back. My concern is if I need to replace it now or may continue to use it.
Rico42 on Dec 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I contacted Rev'It with this question. They replied "Our Seesoft back Protector is designed to handle multiple impacts. No need to replace the back protector. It will still do it’s job if it is called upon."
I've got a Rev'it Horizion jacket size large. I did not see it the Horizion jacket listed on the Rev'it sizing chart for this back protector. Do you know what size Seesoft back protector I need for the Rev'it Horizion jacket size large?
A shopper on Dec 18, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I have a Rev'it Tornado Jacket and bought the Type KN / Size: 106 as a replacement for that jacket's standard back protector. It fit perfectly. I found the sizing by looking at the back protector chart which tells the style and sizing at
http://www.revzilla.com/assets/0000/5918/20140113-Seesoft_Fitting_Chart_-_Update.pdf
The chart says that your jacket is also a KN106 insert.
I have Revit Sand jacket (1st gen) in size L and want to upgrade back armor with see-soft. Wich one should I chouse? In sizing chart it states KN 106, but it is out of stock. Maybe there is a larger one that i can trim and cut to fit into my jacket?
Agyn B on Dec 10, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I would ask the folks at Revzilla for their advice about cutting the back protector to fit your jacket. I added a REV'IT Seesoft Back Protector Insert, Type RV / Size: 05 to my Sand 2 Hi-Viz Jacket, size XL. The back protector fits my jacket perfectly, and it's very comfortable.
I'm buying a Revit Brera size S jacket. Which type and size of the protector is the right match?

What are the dimensions of the Seesoft in inches?
J J on Aug 22, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Dimensions in inches for the Seesoft back protector, Type RV, Size 05:
19 5/16" L x 8 7/8"W upper section, 6 5/8"W lower section x 5/8" thick.

I have found it to be comfortable enough to wear that I soon forgot that the back protector was in there instead of the original piece of foam. It is very flexible and east to get into the pocket.
