Patrick P: I don't expect to enjoy the cushy foam padding that comes with most jackets for more than a millisecond before my back snaps. So an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Hey, quoting Grandma on RevZilla is perfectly cool in this context.Jun 12, 2015

C/O Dee Johnson Apt 1: The superspeed textile jacket did not have a back protector, thus I got this as an addon accessory. It feels great, barely notice it's there. Very good quality! Hope I'll never have to use it :) .Apr 3, 2014
Amar M: added protection to the jacketMar 31, 2014
Dane B: I bought a Dainese Crono textile jacket because the leather jacket I also own was getting hot, heavy, and uncomfortable to ride in. Now, I feel liter and this jacket has vents too! I had to buy a back protector though because it did not come with one. I never plan to use this thing, but I'm happy knowing my body is protected in the event I was to slide on my back. It's an insurance policy I can really use.Mar 28, 2014

Bruce H: Hi, I received a jacket as a gift and it came without the back protector ie why I ordered it. The back protector fits right in and takes a little getting used to but not terrible that being said please make sure you have some room in the jacket as the back protector does take up some, not much, but if you are wearing a skin tight jacket this will not work.Mar 6, 2014
Mahmoud A: Huge fan of Dainese, Surprised the jacket didn't actually come with oneMar 5, 2014
Brett K: It was recommended by Revzilla and after dealing with them I believed them!Feb 19, 2014
Richard L: back protection isn't something I really save $ onFeb 15, 2014
Charles M: Got this for a new leather jacket. Have one already for my Dainese AirFrame textile jacket. Fits nicely and very comfortable. Back protection a must! with M/C jackets and this seems to work well.Jan 17, 2014
Douglas B: Wanted some back protection that fit right into my Dainese jacket. It seemed like a no brainer.Dec 24, 2013
Dave S: Because my wife's backside is sublime. Let's keep it that way.Dec 24, 2013
Zach V: For additional back/spine safety.Dec 2, 2013
Robert H: Chose this to go inside my Dainese Super Speed textile jacket.Nov 13, 2013
Zoltan Peter S: Came free with Dainese CarveMaster jacket purhcase in a promo, great deal! Many people think back protector is just another piece of uncomfortable weight they lug around needlessly; and they are wrong! It's an underrated piece of protection that should come as standard, in most spills the driver ends up on his/her back and I think you should always have one with you.Nov 11, 2013
Jonathan P: Looking for back protection for my cruiser.Nov 5, 2013
foy r: jacket I bought had a pocket just for it, and I like to keep my spine protected.Sep 2, 2013
Dirk K: Needed a back protector for my Dainese Ducati jacket. Revzilla had the best price around for a great product. Fit in the jacket is perfect and provides that added protection with no degradation to comfort.Aug 29, 2013
Kevin C: I chose this Dianese Wave G Back Protector because I own a Dainese Ducati Jacket and this item fits all of their jackets, it's compact, offers complete protection and for the price it's a steal.Aug 21, 2013
A shopper asked:whats the difference between this one and the wave D1 and the manis ?Mar 26, 2015
A shopper asked:Hi, I have a size 50 WOMENS Dainese jacket and I'm wondering whether to stick to the gender advice and buy the G1 or to buy the G2, which they say to buy for size 50 and bigger... The more protection, the better, right? I don't want the protector to be floating in my jacket, but I do want it to fit and not to be too big... Which should I buy? Thanks!Oct 6, 2014
I wear a 52 mens Dainese jacket. The G2 fits perfect in both my jackets and does not feel at all too big. This is the dilemma I had as well when purchasing the Wave protecter. Just as an fyi: 5' 11' 42inch chest.
David K:That is a great question as the video did not show that. I believe that it is short side up as that keeps the Dainese logo proper. After riding with it for a bit, I believe this to be correct. Your rib cage is protected less the further down. The protector is protecting more the further down. Plus your shoulders are less obstructed wit the short side upward.
A shopper asked:I have a Dainese Air-3 jacket (men's) but it's a size 44 (Euro). I know the rule of thumb is G1 for women and G2 for men, but, as a thin guy (31" chest) I was wondering if I should stick with the G2, or go down to the G1? Thanks!Jul 31, 2014
A shopper asked:I currently have a Cage size 44 mens jacket. I've been informed by some other stores that for a size 44 mens, I should be using the G1 as for someone of smaller stature would feel it to be less obtrusive. Would it be possible to put a G1 in a men's 44 jacket?Apr 11, 2014
A S asked:Hi, I have a size 50 WOMENS Dainese jacket and I'm wondering whether to stick to the gender advice and buy the G1 or to buy the G2, which they say to buy for size 50 and bigger...

Konstantin S:Hi. To my mind yoou should take bigger bigger always better than small ))
with bigger you can have only one problem - it can be bigger than pocket on your jacket. In this case you can change it. Also back protection - is one of the most importent part. With bigger protection you have more chanse to be save in crash.
Cong L:Hello, gender advise is based on a generalized average based on common body type of female vs male, but putting the generalization aside, you would want to have a proper fit for the jacket you have, both g1 and 2 will offer great protection, but pick the one that will fit into the jacket better( based on size 50, the g2 would fit more snug). Best luck and ride safe!Oct 6, 2014
A shopper asked:Hello, I have bought an air G level 2 G2 for my Dainese crono textile jacket, and it does not fix on it. Does the wave G back protector work better for that jackect? Thank youAug 14, 2014
A shopper asked:Very new to riding and looking for gear info. The Revzilla review of the Dainese back protectors list the Dainese Wave as a Level 1 Back protector and the Dainese Shield Air G as a Level 2 Back Protector. But say that the Wave is a step up from the Air. How can that be if the Wave is a Level 1 and the Air is a Level 2. My question is which one offers better protection in the case of a crash the Wave or Air? And is the Level 1 or 2 classification refer to style, fit, or protection?Aug 30, 2013
A shopper asked:I recently bought a Dainese Greyhound Leather Jacket size 48 and want to add some back protection. The review video suggests a G2 for size 50 and above, should I follow the Revzilla review advice and buy a G1, or follow the gender guideline(I'm male) and buy a G2?Mar 31, 2013
RevZilla:The Dainese Wave G Back Protector G1 is made to fit all Women's Dainese jackets, and the G2 will fit all Men's Dainese jackets. This should make it fairly easy to decide, and for you, we would recommend going with the G2!Apr 3, 2013
A shopper asked:My new delmar size 44 fits me perfectly. Should I get G1 or G2? I got a few mixed up advises from friends about this matter. And would it get too tight with this back protector?Jun 11, 2012
AntonioP:I am 6ft, I used to use a Wave G2, and now I use a Shield Air G2 Level 2 in my Alien. Its a snug fit with it in there, but once the jacket breaks in a bit, it will feel great. I recommend always having a back protector in there! If you are shorter, like under 5'5" then maybe the G1 I guess? I would have to look at the manual to see the size recommendation again. But I think the G1 is for much shorter people.Jul 26, 2012
RevZilla:Good question! Basically, what one time use (aka "one and done,") means is that after one major impact the product will not be able to absorb additional energy, thus it will not function properly. Think of a crumple zone in a car. You might also not be able to see the after effect of an impact, however the back protector is no longer usable.May 25, 2012
JSBULL:I was told by Dainese that this is a level 1 back protector and the Dainese Shield Air G is a level 2 back protector. I went with the Wave G anyway due to the smaller size and comfort level.Jun 6, 2012
tomZilla:Like the Dainese Air Shield Back Protector the Wave Back Protector is also rated EN 1621.2/2003 Standard, Level 1. If your looking for Level 2 protection please take a look at the Dainese N-Frame back protector or the Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro.Jun 13, 2011
Fabricio B asked:HI guys, i have a dainese avro two piece leather suit, and i was thinking about buying a back protection. But i realized that the jacket doesn´t have a pocket to insert this protection. Is this right? does the avro 2-piece suit not come with the pocket on the back? thanks!!!Aug 19, 2013
RevZilla:It's up to you! The Shield Air is CE Level 2, so it's more protective. It's also thicker and more bulky (I look like a turtle when I wear it). The Wave G is thinner, less protective, and still looks kinda funky on your back. They're both great products, they just look a little funny. I myself ride with the Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro for Dainese. It's CE Level 2, comfortable, much thinner, and more ergonomic.Apr 5, 2013
RevZilla:The G1 measures 16" x 10.5" and the G2 is 17.5" x 10.5" (10.5" is the width at the widest part). Both are about 1" thick, but they have slight conical shape, so that isn't the most reliable measurement.Mar 26, 2013
RevZilla:The Dainese Wave G Back Protector will work with the Dainese Air-Flux Textile Jacket. All Dainese jackets will accept either the Wave G Back Protector, or the Shield Air G Level 2 Back Protector. Although the Wave is nice, the Shield Air G will offer much greater protection, since it is carrying a CE Level 2 Certification, as opposed to the Wave's Level 1. CE Level 2 Back Protectors are designed to allow no more than 9 kN through to the wearer in the standards test. This value is half the energy allowed by the CE level 1 Armor, at 18 kN. We feel CE Level 2 Back Protectors are the way to go, if you are not a fan of spine modifications.Feb 28, 2013
