what you see is what you get Out of the package is a no-frills standard high density foam back protector. As advertised, it slides easily into my revit jacket. It is a tad stiff, but after a few rides you feel it less. Can't complain for the price. April 14, 2014
Replace the foam pad in Firstgear mesh jacket I had to trim the armour to fit in a Firstgear Rush mesh jacket. This armour is hard to cut. I can definately feel the protection on my back. This is thicker that the foam pad that came with the jacket. For the price and the CE rating, it's better than nothing. The armour does not flow air thru it. But as long as I am moving, I stay cool.

Great band for the bug, fit River Road Vise Leather Perfectly A little tough to get in but put in my River Road Vise jacket. Much better than the foam pad it replaced. I also purchased the Alpine Stare elbow and shoulder CE Armor (http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/alpinestars-bio-armor-protection-kit) They also fit perfectly. Highly recommened March 6, 2014
Well priced back insert armor I bought this to insert into my leather ICON MERC jacket. It fits just right but the insert pocket is slightly narrow along the width. It took me about 5 minutes of man handling the armor to get it to in the pocket. Now that's is in there is not coming out. You can't even tell it's in there. The armor it self is high density closed cell foam with plastic squares inside the raised foam squares. Seems solid and will probably reduce back injuries. Don't want to find out! It's a little flexible, thankfully or else there was no way could have gotten it in pocket. Well worth it. February 21, 2014
Hey, it's body armor! Purchased this to replace the temper foam in my summer riding jacket (FirstGear MeshTex). Yes, its hotter, but yes, in the event the ouch happens, I am prepared. It fits the jacket well and does not limit overall comfort. January 18, 2014
Great product and bang for your buck. No price on safety I bought this for use with my AGV Dragon jacket and I called Revzilla before making the final purchase and I am glad that I did as they told me this was the right protector for the jacket I was buying. I only rode 3 times with it before I put the bike away for the winter so I can't comment on overall use but from first impressions, this is a great protector for the price and a necessity for overall safety which you can't put a price on. December 30, 2013
Fits Triumph Raven Leather Jacket Perfectly I bought it for my Triumph Raven Leather Jacket (size L) and it fits perfectly. It is light and doesn't feel awkward. It does make back of the jacket look a little odd (creates a little hump), but I guess it would be the same with any other back protector. It is a big piece of foam, so I don't think Airflow would be that great on mesh style jackets. All in all, I am happy with this back protector and it certainly makes me feel a bit more safe on the road. December 22, 2013
Does the job! Installed easily in my Fieldsheer SS 2.0 jacket, and it fits well and seems very well made. It's a bit stiff, and doesn't provide a lot of airflow, but it's comfortable even with my backpack on. Definitely gives me a measure of confidence. December 17, 2013

Khary M: Great price for added piece of mind. Oct 1, 2013
Wilson L: Improved protector for new jacket. Returned Rev'It, kept Cortech. Cortech pocket is "upside down" (wider at bottom) and smaller, so this protector doesn't fit the pocket. Already opened package, and will work in old Joe Rocket mesh jacket, so keeping it anyway. Sep 24, 2013

Medicineman: Yes it matters. One side will flex, the other will not, and you will feel like you have a board stuck down your back. The hard plastic should be on the outside, and the soft foam on the inside touching your back. Aug 15, 2011

Michael M asked: Can this be cut to fit my Firstgear Rush mesh jacket (LG)? Will cutting it to fit the pad pocket deminish the protection effectiveness of the armor? Jan 28, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
John W: I did not need to modify this armour to fit my jacket, so I can only logically answer your question. 1) the material is flexible so it could be cut to size if needed. A utility knife would probably be adequate to cut through the material assuming there is not an embedded metal element. 2) I would not expect the armour's effectiveness would be reduced beyond the obvious reduction in surface area protected by the armour. Jan 28, 2014
Reply to John Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Kristen V: It can be cut, but it will diminish protection effectiveness simply due to the fact that it will cover less of your back. I'm assuming you are going to cut the sides and not the length, so your spine should still be protected. Jan 28, 2014
