Alpinestars Bionic Race Back Protector
Back Protector is very comfortable.
I bought this snap in back protector for my Tech 1-R suit and it is was absolutely great investment. I wanted the extra protection but was kinda worried about it being uncomfortable in the suit. When in the suit it doesn't even feel like its there. If you are contimplating about it just pull the trigger, you won't be disappointed. I am 5'-11" a shade under 6' and i went with the large and it fits perfectly.

Perfect fit in Alpinestars Tech 1-R
Purchased the bionic race back protector for my size EU38 Alpinestars Tech 1-R jacket. I left the original foam pad in with the race back protector installed. My jacket from the get go was already skin tight, but I am still able to wear it comfortably.
5'6" 145lbs 30" waist 38" chest
size medium race back protector fits perfectly.

If you're looking for a size chart, here you go...
Bought this for my Tech 1-R suit to use with the snap system. Works great. I searched high and low for a size chart and couldn't find one, ended up going with a medium and I feel like it's a little small. I've attached a picture of the size chart that comes IN THE BOX; 5'7" and up should be a large.

Large size fits my Astars Trigger size 52
Wearing with Trigger suit for track days. Large size seems perfect and gives full coverage down to tailbone without crowding. Very comfortable and good air flow. Took a couple wearings to break in suit with protector but now feels like a second skin with protector in place. It seems to articulate just fine. A little awkward to put on. I snap it into the suit after I put on the bottom half and then pull the waist band around front before putting in arms and pulling up top half of suit. Seems to work well and fairly quickly on and off.

Great insert for Jackets with Bionic snap connect system
I use in my Alpinestar GP Pro jacket.
It fits great, never gets in the way of the jacket, stays connected, doesn't make the jacket look like it is bulging, very comfortable, I wear it year round and on long trips on my S1000RR. You won't be disappointed if your jacket has the snap system.

Simple and effective
Bought this as I was doing my first track day, and wanted a bit more tailbone protection. Very simple, and works effectively as it was designed to with Astar jackets. The waistband is a bit tight even for my skinny self though. I ended up buying a Med for my 30in waist 5'9" height.
