Spidi Back Warrior EVO Level 2 Back Protector Insert
Never crashed in this. Other reviews are correct, it may dig into your pants. Sizing it may be a pain, the velcro seems mediocre but I realized being able to size it makes it sort of nice. it actually covers my lower back, I find that lacking in a lot of others.

Fits like it's supposed to.
Had this for about 3 weeks (had to send the first jacket back to get a size smaller) and it fits exactly like it's supposed to and stays in place. Airflow over/through the insert is good and it never feels too hot, even on 95* afternoons. It doesn't feel as protective as some of the high-end models, but it was made for Spidi products so it fits in the jacket so I don't have to worry with a separate piece. It make the jacket a bit bulkier, but it still fits in my side case without issue.

Great for Spidi jackets, not for anything else
I bought this for my Spidi Net 7 Mesh Jacket, size medium. The sizing was incredibly tight. I had the fold the long edges along their creases to about a 90 degree angle to fit it in the internal pocket.
Other than that, it's a perfectly fine back protector. I have yet to experience it in a crash, but it feels like other CEII protectors. I would not have bought this specific protector if any of the Dainese or Forcefield protectors were sized similarly as they are cheaper and from a nicer brand.

It does not fit a Track Jacket
I bought this for my Euro 52 size jacket. It does not fit. It's far too long to fit inside the allotted pocket in the jacket. I typically wear a medium and this back protector still sticks out the bottom when it's adjust all the way up.
When riding with jeans or riding pants, it always catches on them and it is really annoying.
If you have a long torso or just a generally bigger jacket, it might work. Maybe. I suspect that this unit is best for their one-piece track suits.

More comfort than my Dainese shield air pad
Very nice, not overdone product. If only Revzilla would carry the full line of a Spidi products, I would sell all my Dainese gear and switch to Spidi.

I had to return due to the size
There was nothing wrong with this back protector. It's was just a little too big for my liking. After adjusting the protector all the up, I could still feel it hitting the top of my pants….just a little annoying. If you have a longer torso it probably won't be a problem. Just something to consider.

Lot of protection
The jacket fits perfectly and offers enough protection

Perfect for your Spidi suit
I bought this to go in my new Spidi Wind Pro suit. I was using a separate CE2 level protector that strapped on but decided to try the Spidi product which attaches with velcro inside the suit's back protector pocket. I find it much more comfortable than having big elastic straps wrapping around my stomach. It seems less constricting and definitely cooler on hot track days, with no straps interfering with air flow. When slipping on the suit, you notice it but once the suit is on and zippered, you forget about it. It is CE level 2 which is as good as it gets short of an air bag-- although thankfully I haven't tested it. Much recommended for your Spidi or similar suit with a back protector pocket.
