Knox TP2 Advance X CE Back Protector
Simple back piece
Not too expensive and it does its job. Was a little hard to put in my jacket. Joe Rocket Alter Ego. Got it in and don't even know its there.

Fits in Tour Master Flex 3
This is the best bang for your buck back protection. CE 1 rated for 30 bucks.
It DOES fit in the oddly shaped back panels in the new tour master line.

Incredible protection for the money
This is easily twice as thick as the stock pad in my Joe Rocket Alter Ego 3.0 (XXL) jacket, but the dimensions are a little smaller so it fit in with a little finessing. Considering the price and CE rating, this pad will be in every jacket I own going forwards.

Excellent replacement back armor for your Jacket
I bought this armor to replace the OEM armor in my motorcycle jacket. It was a tight fit in the pocket, however it does go in. I wanted the CE rating. It feels as if it would be very strong, I'd recommend this.

Comfortbale CE rated back armor.
I asked Revzilla staff to recommend CE rated back armor that I could install in a Tourmaster Sonora Air jacket. The jacket comes stock with armor that is not CE rated. Staff recommended the Knox TP2 as being a reasonably priced option that would need just a little trimming.
They were right -- this back protector fits the bill. It's comfortable in the jacket and I feel more secure with the CE rating.

CE rated at low cost. Just as comfortable as back padding that came with jacket, can't tell its there.

Saved my back in a crash
I was struck from behind while at a stop sign. My bike flew out from under me and I fell backwards onto the ground. As I landed on my back I felt the armor compress heavily underneath me, absorbing much of the shock. I still had bad bruising and torn muscles around my upper rib cage due to how I landed, but I credit it with having saved me from a much more serious back injury.
Sure it's big, stiff, and makes the back of your jacket puff out. But it protects you when you need it.
A MUST-ADD to your jacket.

A big jump from the stock back protector
I purchased the Knox back protector as an upgrade to my stock back protector that came the Joe Rocket Velocity jacket.
This was a step up from the stock ones and offers descent back protection. The pairs up really well with the Velocity Jacket in the rear back armour pocket.
All in all, it feels firmer, safer and more secured, It would have been a better fit should the armour be a little more longer and wider, by approximately 2 inches.
