Knox TP2 Advance X CE Back Protector
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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
