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.<br><br>Sure it's big, stiff, and makes the back of your jacket puff out. But it protects you when you need it.<br><br>A MUST-ADD to your jacket.

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.<br><br>YOU'RE AWESOME REVZILLA!

Saved my butt
This back protector was put into my 2011 Teknic Chicane Leather Jacket and helped me come out of a hard 40mph lowside almost without injury. I won't go into detail, but I felt very safe with this integrated armor.

Good, could be better
I bought this to go into my REV'IT! Rebel leather jacket. It fits as expected and it's a big step up over the stock foam.<br><br>One complaint - a great back protector in my opinion covers all the way from waist to neck. This has decent protection but I'd love it if it covered all the way up to the collar.

Must Need Upgrade
I bought this to fit my Tornado jacket. The fit was perfect and I felt more protected with this back protector. It allows for decent airflow on hotter days and doesn't feel awkward or uncomfortable when riding. If you are looking to upgrade your back protection then you cant go wrong with this product.

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.

On my Revit Tornado Jacket fits perfectly in the pocket. No venting holes so on a hot day less air flow, but do you want to be cool or safe?

Great light weight protection.
Its light, its great protection. Just wonder if they can still keep the rating with ventilation holes. Thinking of maybe adding a few myself.

Alfredo D on Apr 2, 2015
To add to Tour Master Sonora Men's riding jacket, as the back protector that comes with that is simple foam and not CE rated. A previous review on the Tour Master Sonora jacket mentioned using this back protector without needing to trim it.
Alexander B on Mar 9, 2015
Better back protection for a jacket.
Stephen A. on Feb 6, 2015
To replace the spine armor that came with a previously ordered jacket. I wanted the CE level protection and this looks to be priced well to achieve these aims.

Alan S on May 21, 2014
do not ever buy a jacket and not replace the foam back padding! this piece is perfect! i know if i ever need the protection it will be there. only in hot weather it doesn't breath on the back but it's the price you pay for protection.
lori p on May 4, 2014

My Bullit race suit accepts the Knox TP2. The price & protection is a great value. I know other racers who use this & had lowside & highside crashes & the Knox TP2 protected them w/o injury to their spinal area.

Michael H on Nov 10, 2013
I've used this back protector twice now. Once for my winter coat (Teknik Sprint) and my summer coat (teknik supervent mesh pro). It fits the pocket perfectly. I would only recommend this product if you like your spinal column.
Vance P on Nov 8, 2013
Great price for added piece of mind.
Khary M on Oct 1, 2013
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.
Wilson L on Sep 24, 2013
Fit my jacket, one of the few available, great price.
Henry C on Sep 14, 2013
Bought this to go in a Rev'It Airwave jacket, it fits perfectly and is comfortable to boot. I don't get a large sweat patch when wearing this back protector.

Seth G. on Nov 15, 2015
When installed inside the jacket pouch, which side of the back protector is supposed to face/ touch your back- ie the bumpy side or the flat side? Or, does it not really matter?
A shopper on Aug 11, 2011
BEST ANSWER: The Knox TP2 CE Back Protector should be installed into your jacket with the smooth side against your back.
just bought a REV'IT jacket, ducati summer jacket 2013, size M, it has shoulder and elbow protection, but I need a back protector, will this one fit exactly in the jacket?

thanks
A shopper on Aug 22, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I have the Rev'it Tornado jacket size 54. I put the Knox protector in my jacket. I would say it's a tight fit but I haven't had any problems with it. I would buy it again if I had to.
I just purchased the Joe Rocket Velocity mesh jacket and would like to upgrade the foam back pad that comes with the jacket. Will this product fit my jacket? Thanks for the help in advance.
Nathaniel W on Jul 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You have to check the JR specs - they should tell you what pad(s) will fit.

If not, measure the long (vertical) and short (horizontal) dimensions of the JR pocket and see if they are the same as the Knox pad.
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?
Michael M on Jan 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Is this Level 1 or Level 2 protection?
A shopper on Oct 27, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The Knox TP2 Advance X CE Back Protector is certified Level 1.
Is this a foam+shell combo like the knox shoulder pads, or just foam? Can't really tell from pictures or the video.
A shopper on Jun 18, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The outer is a slightly hard foam (not super hard plastic) and the inner is a softer foam. The pad is pretty comfortable and bends with your back in all positions.
I have a neo Daytona jacket from a few years ago and the pad shape is similar but I am not sure about the sizing.
A shopper on Feb 15, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Technically, the Knox TP2 Advance X CE Back Protector will fit.

It is just a matter of getting it into the jacket.
I just ordered the Joe Rocket Velocity mesh jacket and am looking to upgrade the back protection. Will this product fit my jacket? Thanks for the help in advance.
A shopper on Jul 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It is standard shape and size , it has fitted in all my jackets so far.
I'm wearing a 3X Joe Rocket jacket. The shape of the Knox looks the same as the Joe Rocket. Will it fit?
Thanks!
A shopper on Dec 19, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the shape and size of these back protectors is the same, so the Knox will fit in place of your Joe Rocket protector.
would it fit the Triumph MCQUEEN DESERT RACER JACKET size XS?
