Knox TP2 Advance X CE Back Protector 4.4 5 99 99
Great cost CE rated at low cost. Just as comfortable as back padding that came with jacket, can't tell its there. October 20, 2014
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. July 15, 2014
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. July 14, 2014
Nice back protector The fit into the jacket was nicely matched. The quality of the protector is so much better than the one that came with the jacket. July 7, 2014
Decent protector with bad air flow. This protector came with the jacket I bought so I can't complain too much. Seems like it would definitely dissipate some energy if I came off the bike. It has no perforation scheme and so it traps a lot of heat. There is no air flow whatsoever where this thing sits one your back. Doesn't take up a lot of room and folds a little when you need to get it into the pocket of your jacket. June 21, 2014
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. March 10, 2014
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

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

John P: 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.

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

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
