This product broke in two as if cut by a knife In the intersection in between the top and bottom part, it just separated into two parts without having any incident, of course, just by using the jacket for 10 times. October 14, 2014
Suitable for brand new Rukka Airman jacket Because lack of new D3O back-protector, I prefer this item to protect my back, it's perfect fit for new Airman jacket. I would advice this product combination with it. August 20, 2014
Solved the hot back I ordered this on a whim to replace the foam back pad in my Tourmaster Flex 3 mesh jacket. It fits well and I don't even notice it's there. Air flows right through it like it wasn't there. I don't expect this will be great protection but it will be at least as good as the flimsy foam pad that came with the jacket without stopping the wind. No more sweaty back on the way to work!

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Kermit J: Bought an air flow jacket. Did not want to defeat the purpose of that buy buying a solid non flow shield. Aug 4, 2014
Michael J: Accessory to my Rukka jacket. Oct 14, 2013
Michael K: Added this into my mesh jacket to replace the foam pad that was there. Might not be any better or worse for protection but it flows a lot more air. My back doesn't get as warm. Aug 28, 2013
Anders N asked: Will this back protector and jacket set fit the Joe Rocket Super Ego jacket? Jul 22, 2014

Michael K: It might be a little long for that jacket. I tried it in mine (which is a 3XL) and it curls a bit at the top. You notice it when you're paying attention but it's never bothered me while riding and I quickly forget about it.

My concern would be if you're wearing a smaller size it might curl up more and be a problem. Revzilla does have a great return policy so it's worth a shot!

Max W asked: What's the thickness of these pads in the middle? I'm looking for something very thin to use in an existing leather jacket. Jun 28, 2014

Michael K: The back protector is about 1/4" thick across. It's flexible and the combination makes it almost impossible it tell it's even there.

It is only limited protection of course, but better than nothing and I'm sure Rukka made it the best they could within the size and airflow capabilities of this back pad.
