Alpinestars Bionic Race Back Protector
Great Backprotector Great Price
I dont usually buy clothing where i can not try on but revzilla has a great return policy. The quality of the protector is top notch. The back proctor fits great. I'm 5"6' 160 lbs and the med fits perfect. In my alpinestar carver suit it also fits perfect. I was worried it would be hot and uncomfortable but after a couple sessions at the track i forgot i had it on. The snap is nice and snug when it connects to the suit. Definitely recommend to other who wear alpinestar suits.

Typical high quality Alpinestars...
I purchased this Alpinestars Bionic Race Back Protector to use inside my Alpinestars race suit. It fits perfectly to my body and is very comfortable throughout my events in above 90 degree weather. Most important, I feel very secure in the belief that this armor will perform as needed if I get into a crash. You can't go wrong with Alpinestars gear!

Works great, but would get the separate version in future
This back protecter works and fits great. I hardly even notice it (especially compared to the first generation alpinestars slip in protector that was way to stiff). But after using it for a couple of weeks I think I would get the completely separate version with shoulder straps. The way this one dangles in your jacket on one snap is sort of a pain when getting your gear on and off throughout the day. It's not terrible, just annoying enough knowing that there is a better option.

Very nice protection. The relation between price and benefit is very good.
Only a advice: the best fit you will find with a AS jacket that has a clip for a perfect connection.

Fits nicely inside the suit, and flexes well with movement. Hopefully I'll never find out how much abuse it will take,

Awesome back protector
I ordered this back protector mainly because for a CE level 2 protector from Alpinestars, that's a pretty attractive offer. The back protector has good ventilation, fits against the body well, and most importantly feels very protective (while still actually moving quite well and not being intrusive).
The only downside to this is that if you dont have a snap at the top of the jacket, it's has a bit too much room to move with only the hip fastener. In my opinion if you have an older Alpinestars jacket without the button at the top or a model without one, I'd get something else with either a second set of securement over the shoulders. or just stick with an insert. Barring that condition though, I think you're hard pressed to find a better quality back protector at the same price point.

Another great alpinestars product
This is a great back protector offers peace of mind when riding knowing that you are protected front and back really like that it attaches to the alpinestars jackets so that you can take it off and put it on quick and easy this back protector is very comfortable and offers great protection with the added benefit of integrating into the alpinestars jacket you won't even notice that it is there

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.
