SAS-TEC Back Protector
looks can be decieving.
Prior to buying this product I was trying to find some examples to compare it to to get more of an idea of what I was dealing with. At my current location I am currently not privy to a lot of products. with that said I thought it looked a bit more bulky than it is. it was rather light and feels pretty durable. Hoping I don't have to get any more of a hands on experience in regards to protection that this.

Needed more protection
I had purchased two jackets. The Tourmaster 3.0 and the The Scorpion SP2, neither one had any real back protection. I wore the Spidi back and chest protector but it was too bulky and moved around while touring. It was also a hassle while touring to take on and off while stopped. I bought two of the Sas-Tec back inserts and they fit perfectly in the space provided in the backs of both jackets. I also purchased two Dianese chest protector vests. Everything is so comfortable and fitted. I feel so much more well protected. The shopping experience is so easy and fast here at Revzilla.

Good fit in Rev'it Defender GTX Jacket
Bought this for a Re'It defender GTX jacket. Fit well in the pouch. Seems much more protective than the stock flimsy foam pad.
It's been cold and I've been using one of both liners so can't comment on the ventilation/airflow. Seems like it will be fine.
It does weigh a little more than the foam pad, but for the prootection it provides, its an worthwile tradeoff.

just wish it were cheaper
I got these to replace the flimsy padding provided with the Joe Rocket Alter Ego. I got the larger size, which was a good call because it's just a little more and width-wise it fit perfectly, just had to trim a good amount from the bottom and now it fits like a charm. As for how protective it is, I'll trust the CE rating. As for comfort, can't really complain, I usually don't notice it's back there. It'd be nice if it were somehow just as protective but thinner, but that doesn't seem reasonable to expect. Overall, I just wish it were cheaper, as it adds a significant amount to the cost of the jacket.

Fitted straight into a KTM adventure jacket, replacing the flimsy pad.
Once pad warms up it conforms easily to body contours. Making it virtually restriction free. Dont know that its there, Bringing the back protection into line with the elbows and knee protectors in the suit.

Ordered this for my Scorpion Batallion jacket and after a little trimming, it fit and feels great! I hope to never test the durability but have found peace of mind knowing this has my back.

I hope this thing never gets put to the test. Nevertheless, I feel much more safe and confident in my gear.
I have a Scorpion Hat Trick II, size M jacket and I got the SC-1/11 protector. Fits my jacket almost perfectly. I even left the foam padding that came with the jacket in there for even more protection. No level of discomfort at all. I highly recommend this back protector.
