Knox TP2 Advance X CE Back Protector
better back pad upgrade to stock
Bought the upgrade for the rev it airwave jacket, fits as it supposed to, better protection then not having any.
Only complaint is that its one solid piece that doesn't flow air, creates a hotspot on my back.

The best affordable "CE rated" back pad.
After I received my shipment, I took the time to inspect the items purchased. I found a number of defective areas along the left portion of the Knox TP2 Advance X CE Back Protector. The discrepancies that I make mention of are the polypropylene honeycomb inner core capsules that are held in place by the individuals PE foam pads. I honestly feel that I got the one faulty model from the extensive product assembly line. In short, I took pictures and emailed the images with a brief explanation yesterday; and today I received a corresponding email that read, “Thank you for letting us know about the problem. We mailed out a new one to you today at no cost, and feel free to keep the other one.” I cannot say enough about Revzilla’s first class customer service. It’s so refreshing to know that there are a handful of companies (through my experience) in the global market today that will go above and beyond the standard of excellence still.
YOU'RE AWESOME REVZILLA!

Quality protection for an affordable price!
Great protection, and value. I was amazed at how comfortable this pad was I do not really notice it when in the riding position and was worth the upgrade from the foam pad in my Teknic Mercury Jacket. For the value and protection well worth the investment in safety.

Not for Joe Rocket
I called customer service trying to beef up my Joe Rocket Alter Ego 3.0 jacket and they recommended this replacement saying, "These guys make the Joe Rocket back protectors so it's the same thing just cheaper"...more or less. Not true! The knox is smaller than the original foam back pad it comes with so if you are swapping them out, the knox feels like it does not give you as much protection as the foam. The knox will also float around a bit if you have it in there alone. I'm working with a size Medium on the jacket so maybe it fits better with a Small.
However, instead of returning it and bumping up to the actual joe rocket back protector($80), I just placed the knox in with the original foam pad to give me that tighter fit and more protection. This allows it to also sit in place tightly. This is especially good for me and others who are lanky and can't get their jackets to fit right(I have too much space in the chest)

Good product for what it is...
Got this for my new river road jacket and it fits in the pocket perfectly. No airflow, though, whatsoever. CE rated for the price was great!

Much better protection
Replaced the foam padding that came in my teknic jacket. Fit in the jacket perfectly and much better protection that it came with. Not to bulky and feels comfortable. Hope I never have to see how well it works.

Beefy back pad
I bought this back pad to replace the thinner one in my Technik suit. I'm using the pad now in my Icon jacket for extra protection and to make the jacket a bit tighter on me. At this price I think everybody should own one.

Right Fit for REV'IT! Airwave Jacket
Fits my REV'IT! Airwave Jacket well. You definitely feel and know it's there, but that's a good thing – reminds you you're protected. Note that adding armor to your jacket will make your jacket fit smaller.
