The D30 Air Back Protector provides patented, CE approved and breathable protection. D30 Air has been developed specifically for Rukka and is a unique material that combines enhanced chemistry with product engineering to produce high performance shock absorption and impact protection.
The D30 material contains intelligent molecules that flow freely when moving but lock together to absorb impact energy upon impact.
High performance shock absorption
Tested according to CE-standards
Excellent airflow through protector
Fits all Rukka and Olympia Jackets (men's and women's) sold by RevZilla
Excellent armor, but beware if you have an older Rukka suit
I have an eight year old Rukka Airpower suit, and switched the original black rubbery armor out for the D30 armor. The armor is WAYYY better than anything else I have seen, and should be useful on a variety of other brands.
However, beware of buying this for an older Rukka; the thicker armor causes a change in the fit of the jacket, and although the back protector works fine (except in a woman's jacket: you'll have to trim some of the foam off to get it to fit), it causes the shoulder armor to pull back, leaving the shoulders unprotected. It should work perfectly in a newer suit.

This is much better than the foam one it is replacing.
I am replacing the foam back protector from my Olympia jacket with the d3o from Rukka.

Much more flexible than my old CE back protector
I replaced the CE approved back protector in my Olympia Motorsports jackets with this. It should breathe better (although it's still too cold to test that) in warmer weather and is definitely less rigid. I've also replaced my elbow armor with this and have shoulder pads on order.

Back protector is beefy but poorly designed
I upgraded all the armor panels in my Rukka Airway jacket to the D3O pads, but this is the only pad that I felt was poorly designed.
The default Rukka black air pad is much wider than this one and fills all the excess space at the back of the jacket. This D3O pad just sort of hangs there from the (small) velcro strap at the top of the armor pocket and swings around at your back. In fact, the loop to hook this pad into the jacket was too fat and I had to cut part of the pad so the tiny velcro strap could fit through it and connect.
Overall, this pad was poorly designed and doesn't feel like it was designed for my jacket. I recommend all the OTHER D3O pads for the Rukka jacket (elbow, shoulder, hip, shin) except this one.

Benoit R: I bought and AirMan ... and that was the missing piece !! ;-)Mar 7, 2014
William G: I purchased a Belstaff Mojave jacket that did not include back protection. This protector fits the back pocket on the jacket and provides the same level of protection as the shoulder and elbow armour included with the jacket.Feb 8, 2014
Barry H:Early this winter I purchased a closeout Olympia Jacket. The protection was rather light and because I saved quite a bit on the jacket, I changed out all of the armor to D3O Protectors. The back coverage is great as well as the shoulders and elbows. Everything is super comfortable.
