Spidi Warrior Comp 510 Back Protector
An absolute must-have for your Spidi jacket
This is really a must-have product if you're ordering a Spidi jacket. It attaches seamlessly to my H2OUT jacket. With an expensive all-weather jacket there's no reason not to add the extra protection and insurance to keep you safe in the event of a fall.
The construction is very flexible and curves to fit my back very well, no complaints.

Protects your back
It's obviously not as good as a proper back protector, and it's fastened to the jacket by velcro which doesn't feel very durable. But for what it is, it suits it's purpose. I'd have felt better if it went all the way down to the small of the back. But you can't have everything.

Having bought the Spidi Track Leather jacket I thought it a good idea to get the back protector. It fits perfectly with the pocket provided in the jacket. Snug fit and velcro keeps it from sliding around. Looks okay, you don't look too much little a ninja turtle. Takes a little getting used to having the protector in there but I think in the event of a crash it should help protect your spine.

It took about 45 seconds to install and disappeared in the jacket once installed.

Great Fit for a Spidi JK Jacket
This is another great product from Spidi, though I wish it was a level 2 protector.
I have fit tested this back protector in the following jackets and here are the results:
1. Alpinestars SMX Airflo (From 2006/2007): Fits loose but only because the jacket doesn't have a back protector pocket to hold it or any back protectors in place.
2. Dainese Speed Naked Perforated Leather Jacket (From 2012/2013: 90% perfect fit. No trimming necessary. If it wasn't so wide, I think the fit would be 100% perfect.
3. Spidi JK Leather Jacket: Fits perfect and the velcro mounts secure it in place.

I bought this in addition to my SPIDI HI VIS H20 Out. I also purchased the back protector. This chest protector does as advertised but I wish it had a zipper in the middle instead of snaps on the sides. It is a little more work to dig the snaps from the outer liner and fish them through the insulated liner to get to the chest protector. I always just unsnap the right side and leave the protector hanging by the left.
I commend Spidi for offering some front protection. The older I get, the better and more gear I wear. I feel this is a perfect mix between ease of use vs protection. It is not a full up racing protector but I am a 10 mile commuter and weekend explorer.

Light and convenient...
I recently got a Marathon jacket, which is great, but it did not have any back protection so I checked the options and fount this spidi warrior. It is light and easy to install and adjust the height thanks to a velcro strap already on the jacket. I thought it would be larger, but after using it I have found to be big enough. If you want to protect all your spine (specially the lower back) you should get the Spidi Back Warrior EVO Level 2 Back Protector Insert (SKU Z147). it is a little longer and will cover your lower back better.
