Dainese Wave G Back Protector
This is my second Wave G back protector. My first one I picked up at a Dainese store. I needed to fit it into a non-Dainese jacket.
It was the exact shape I needed. Feels great, way more safer then the foam pad the jacket came with.
It does make the jacket a little tighter, something to consider if buying a jacket.
I think all jackets should have CE approved pads stock but that would drive prices even higher, I just wish more people would replace that cheap foam pad in their jackets. Seems like people are more concerned about the bike they ride over the protection they need to have.

Excellent product, guaranteed to fit your Dainese apparel, but so will many other, cheaper alternatives
I would recommend looking into some cheaper alternatives that do the same thing and will almost definitely fit in your Dainese (or other brand) jacket. I bought this item at the same time that I bought my jacket, on a showroom, in a flurry of splurging and rationalization. In retrospect, the jacket was a good purchase (Stripes Perforated) but the back protector would have been easily substituted for the less expensive D3O option ($25), which is flexible until impact occurs.
The articulation and overall fit make this back protector perfectly comfortable, even in a non-Dainese jacket, and it's reassuring feeling the shape of it against your back as you ride. Breaking a vertebra would suck, I imagine.
Ventilation seems okay.

Works as advertised
Fits right into my Dainese jacket and doesn't change the fit of the jacket at all. I'm happy to have it as an option so I have some back protection when I commute and my stand alone back protector is a little too much to bother with.

LIKE IT'S NOT THERE
Light weight and barely noticeable protective solution. Flexible and great perforation.

I slipped this bad boy into one of my Dainese jackets and instantly felt like I had a turtle shell on my back, but in a good way. lol
It's very comfy, moves with the body well, fits in the jacket well. I do wish it flowed a little more air but that's probably more due to how tight my jacket is than the protector itself. Like most Dainese gear it's very well built and should last a long time.
