Dainese Wave G Back Protector
Love this back protector
This fit like a glove in my Dainese jacket. Good protection. Feel like it will help me if I ever fall.

Solid Dainese Back Protection
A solid back protector that I feel good about having in case of a crash.
Only downside is that is doesn't fit as snugly in the center of my jacket as I thought it would. I'm wearing a size Men's 50 Speed Naked with the G2 and there is an inch or two of side to side, as well as up and down movement. Not a huge deal, but it does annoy me when I have to adjust the protector after putting on my jacket. Also I feel as if it should sit an inch or two higher up on the back for optimum protection, an issue which would be eliminated if there wasn't that extra space in the pocket.

Great addition to my Dainese Tempest D-Dry Jacket
Fits nicely into the back pouch of my Dainese jacket and does not affect the fit. I don't really notice it when riding, but enjoy the extra protection it provides.

Generally, I am happy with the product, I would have liked it to protect physically more of the back.
Airflow could be better as well.

Hope to never need it
But will be glad when I do! The back protector is easy to install into my Dainese jacket and is comfortable and breathable. Didn't really notice a difference with it in my jacket and I'm sure it'll save my back if I ever need it!

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.
