Tryonic See+ Back Protector
Best entry CE level 2 back protector
The level of technical features are excellent, this results in a low profile CE level 2 back protector that fits under jackets very well while affording a high degree of impact protection. Lightwieght and highly ergonomic, the comfort is so good i wear it skiing all of the time and barely notice it. Straps are very adjustable making it easy to find the perfect fit.

SAVED my spine/backside and most importantly, my life
when i first bought this, i was thinking that it will probably never come to use unless the bike flip endos onto my back. how often will u fly into a pole backwards right? well a week ago i locked up and crashed rolling and tumbling down a steep hill with no leathers; just helmet, gloves, and this Tryonic. i completely snapped my collar bone in the fall then an oncoming car doing 40mph slammed into my spine as i was rolling. this amazing contraption Tryonic put together saved me from total paralysis or possible death. it did its job 110%, the inside polystyrene did shatter as its suppose to. i cannot thank revzilla enough for its good price that enticed me to purchase this. i loved the look so much that i wouldnt wear my gear so i can just have this fully exposed and showing, which was my mistake. i normally wear this under my dianese one peice and its awesome. only thing that bugs me is that the plastic strap adjuster digs into my shoulder while wearing my tight fit race suit, but thats only because racesuits are suppose to have non-strap protectors. out of all my gear, this back protector is definately my favorite. its the only device that will save you from death besides a helmet. its a MUST HAVE, so get on it!!

Best protection for Buck!
Finish is top notch, and for a level 2 CE rated, you can't get a better product!
Also the way the straps are way more comfortable than alpinestars bio armor or the dainese that I've tired.
Do consider that is around an 1" in thickness.

Great Protector / Stylish / Comfortable
Awesome piece of protective equipment. Opted for this (see+) over the Feel 3.7 since I am wearing this underneath a riding jacket. I have the Yamaha Joe Rocket Mesh jacket (removed the proprietary foam back padding/protection) and use the see+ now. No troubles fitting a t-shirt, long sleeve, and light sweatshirt underneath the armor and then wearing the jacket over everything. And I still don't look puffy. I don't really know if it protects as advertised (hope to not have to find out) but the armor is durable and the amount of adjustments (shoulder straps, waist straps, straps that attach from mid armor to waist strap) are great, allows for a perfect fit.
Bang for the Buck = 10 (got it on sale!)
Style = 10 (have only heard compliments) blue/white matches my R6
Comfort = 10 (so many adjustments, I'm overall avg height/torso length)
Protection/Durability = NA/9 (ever so slight fraying on some of the edges of the straps, but makes sense, normal wear and tear)
Air Flow = Great, can feel air even when underneath my riding jacket
Features = 10 (at least 3 points of adjustment, easy to custom fit)

Great fitting back protector.
Bought this bc protector to use for track days this spring. The adjustability built into the back protector is great--it should fit a wide variety of shapes. It's light and barely noticeable under leathers. Great product for the money!

Have not slid across any asphalt on it yet, so I cant say much for the protection, but everything else is great.

A great all-around level-2 BP w/ multiple applications
My only experience of back protectors are limited to my first one I got, Forcefield Sub-4, exclusive for track use. So I will mainly be comparing The Tryonic SEE+ to that.
Finally decided to replace all those level-1 "back protector" that came with my jackets for street use. I was looking for something light, with a slim profile and level-2 certified and the SEE+ seems to met all my criteria well. First thing I noticed about the SEE+ is how light it is and how the articulated design moves with my body well; Especially compare to my Sub-4 and because of that, the SEE+'s harness can be and is much more snug and form fitting. The harness is very well designed and provide lots of adjustability.
The hard-shell design works best if you are the kind of rider that wore back-protectors without a jacket (tsk-tsk). It provided some added puncture resistance and slide-ability but the trade off is being a hard-shell BP, it usually meant it is crash-and-trash kind of gear; in addition the gaps between the articulated parts might get caught on stuff when you are sliding on your back wondering "did that car just cut me off?" or "I knew I shouldn't be pushing it so hard on my out lap". Hey, but at least you don't have to feel and look like you are wearing a rubber floor mat on your back. (cough *Forcefield* cough).
While the level-2 rated at 7.7Kn might not be as low as the Forcefield Sub-4 or the FEEL 3.7, but it will be far superior than 99% of the stuff that came with your jacket. The low temp rating with be a feature that is unique to this line.
I think for the price of $150, it is a great product and provide some added insure to protect yourself from drivers that are "sharing" the road with you......ALL OF THEM.
- light and move with your body.
- form fitting, great harness.
- Does not feel like wearing a rubber floor mat.
- hard-shell construction = crash-and-trash.
- Take a look at Forcefield Sub-4 or Tryonic FEEL 3.7 for better Level-2 rating.
