Alpinestars Bionic Race Back Protector
Snapped into my Motegi leathers perfectly
Snapped into my Motegi leathers perfectly. Leathers are much easier to put on and take off now with the back protector snapped in behind the mesh.

Fits well under leathers
I haven't come off the bike yet since running with this back protector, but when I do (its just a fact of life at the track), I'm sure it will stay put and do its job. It is low profile, so no need to size up leathers to make room for it. It also integrates well with Astars leathers.

Good product for price
This is a good product for the price, it does make my Dainese suit feel a bit constricted around the chest area with this on but I guess that's just my suit being a bit small perhaps. Under my jacket it fits just fine though. Would recommend

Gets the job done
I'm using this with an older Alpinestars Trigger 1 piece suit. First time out on the track with it and I unfortunately had to put it to good use.
First, the fit is good, I don't even notice it's on when I'm riding. The waste straps are really tight. I have a small frame, slightly wider at the belly but nothing I would call a large beer belly. The waste straps are extremely snug, even when fastened at the widest setting.
I can't get my suit on with this protector snapped into the suit. It either gets awkward or it comes unsnapped. So, I just put the protector on, then the suit. It's snug enough that even though it's not snapped into the suit, it stays in place just fine.
This past weekend, had a small low side coming out of a corner, slid on my side and back for a bit. I came out of it completely unharmed. My suit of course did the most work, but this back protector gave me a good level of reassurance as I slid across the pavement.
Recommended, but their newer version may fit better.

Worth the money
Haven't had an issue with mine yet. Fits comfortable, and does not impede my movement in a 1-piece suit. I forget it's there.

Great comfort and protection!
Although I have yet to go down with this protector on, I feel incredibly safe with it on. After wearing it for a while, it doesn't feel like it is even there. It fits perfectly in my Alpinestars Motegi suit.

Fits great, very comfortable
I purchased the medium size based on the recommendations given by Revzilla for my A* size 52 suit. The fit is perfect. It covers my whole back and I do not feel the protector back there while I'm riding, even wearing it for the first time.
Highly recommended for those with A* suits and jackets with the snap system. Don't think about it, just buy the back protector and add a piece of mind.
