Well Thought out Back Protection but not for me.
I ordered this back protector in the G2 size for the Dainese Air Flux Jacket in size 52 since most Dainese stuff doesn't come with a back protector. Unfortunately the jacket and this back protector just weren't meant to be. Even though the sizing says that a G2 is the proper fit for that jacket, it was such a tight fit that I thought the zipper was going to come unstitched.<br><br>But I digress. This is actually a very nice back protector. If you hold the Shield AIr up to a light you can see right through this thing meaning that it is going to have much better airflow than a foam pad you get in most jackets. Then there is the armadillo-like plastic panels on the outside to ensure that it conforms to your shape even if in a tuck. Another great feature of the panels is that they overlap each other so that nothing can get in between them. The foam built into protector is sufficient enough to cushion you, at least modestly, from the plastic itself should you take a fall.<br><br>On the other hand, this thing is pretty sizable which has its ups and downs though. On the plus side, it covers a large portion of your back, but on the minus side, it's pretty thick: roughly 2".<br><br>I would say that if you have a Dainese jacket that would fit the Shield Air, I would definitely go for it but remember that due to its thickness, it's going to take up quite a bit of room in your jacket. You may have to go one size up if your jacket is snug. I haven't seen protection that was as well thought out as the Shield Air and that is why I believe that it should be a serious contender for anyone looking for back protection for their Dainese jackets.

Fit My Alpinestars Leather Jacket...but barely
Very good protector. First tried Force Field and Alpinestars but noticed they both seemed smaller than the back pocket of my jacket.<br><br>The Dainese fit perfectly. Width is perfect but the length was about 0.5" longer (as measured against the stock foam insert that came with the jacket). Regardless, the Velcro closures (three of them) seem to keep the back protector in place!<br><br>I preferred this product over the others because I felt it gave me more coverage in the back. The others protectors shifted too much for my comfort.

Great fitting back protector
not much to review here. Fits just perfect into my new Dainese Alien jacket's back pocket. Glad I ordered the jacket big enough size, as the protector is much thicker than my Alpinestar protectors so it needs more roomier jacket.<br><br>airflow is really good...was wearing it on an 80s day in NC and was not sweating at all while moving. Also, it makes me warmer if I am riding in 50s-60s degree temperature.<br><br>Great product....not looking forward to testing its protection level though!

I like the product in general but I am not very impressed with the air flow part of it. It is definitely better than other back protectors.

CE Level 2 Protection!
I bought the G2 size back protector for my A* 44/54 jacket as A* did not have a Level 2 back protector on the market at the time. This protector fit very tight into protector pocket in the jacket, but still fit.<br><br>On the first ride I could feel the protector back there, but on subsequent rides it was no longer noticeable and gave me a great peace of mind. The back protector is very comfortable and did not notice any reduction in airflow on my back while moving. Hopefully I don't have to test it out anytime soon.

Great Buy
Bought it because I wanted to be protected of coarse. I wish that the jacket I bought came with one but I'm glad that I got to choose the better back protection. It fits great and doesn't alter the way i ride my bike or wear my jacket.

Great for casual riding
I have a Super Speed Textile jacket, and got this to use in this jacket for when I'm just riding around town. (I wear an Avro Race suit and a Wave back protector for aggressive riding) I've spent a lot of time with this in my jacket and I hardly know it's there, I've even sat through several movies. And I know I'll be protected in the event of an off. One of the reviews said that the larger didn't fit into his jacket, so I measured the pocket and bought the smaller one. I then read somewhere else that the jacket has 2 pockets (I didn't see the second pocket) and I could have fit the larger one in it (I assume the second pocket is for the wave G). I'm happy with the protector but I'll probably buy the larger one soon as it provides a few extra inches of protection.

Fits into my airframe jacket, doesn't affect the comfort of the jacket, but makes it fit a tiny bit more snug. Feel safer with the back protector.

It's actually really comfy
It really molds into my back for some reason. I imagined that having this would be really uncomfortable, but as it turns out, I actually feel comfortable leaning on surfaces while having my jacket and this on. Plus, it looks really sturdy and flexible.<br><br>I haven't tested its strength yet, but I don't intend to, or hope to do so.

I wanted back protection. The G2 fits in all three Dainese jackets I have. It is light and quite comfortable, especially when feet are on the highway pegs and I am leaning back against the backrest on the Ultra Classic Electra Glide.
Lowell P on Apr 30, 2014
I was in doubt between this and the Forcefield. Decided on these because they seem a bit slimmer.

While I do not use spine protection religiously, I usually do wear it. Living in arizona I wanted spine armor with good ventillation. I needed this one to go with a dainese jacket I had recently purchased.

Good protection.
Jose D on Oct 29, 2013
There's never any substitute for Dainese products so when it came to buying a back protector, reading the previous reviews as well this was an obvious and easy choice to make.

With the international shipping costs added its made this piece of equipment 'premium' in terms of price, but would you really want to compromise your own safety and protection for a few bucks. I'm hoping that I'll never have to find out how good this product is, I'm happy with the peace of mind it gives

Richard T B on Sep 29, 2014
Very new to riding and looking for gear info. The Revzilla review of the Dainese back protectors list the Dainese Wave as a Level 1 Back protector and the Dainese Shield Air G as a Level 2 Back Protector. But say that the Wave is a step up from the Air. How can that be if the Wave is a Level 1 and the Air is a Level 2. My question is which one offers better protection in the case of a crash the Wave or Air? And is the Level 1 or 2 classification refer to style, fit, or protection?
A shopper on Aug 30, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Level 1 or 2 refers to the protection standards. Level 1 is less than level 2, so the Shield Air G offers more protection than the Wave G. G 1 and G2 refer to the size of the back protector, G1 is smaller than G2. I also looked at both back protectors before getting the Shield Air G, and it is larger than the Wave G in size and shape (rectangle vs oval) and covers more of your back for better protection.
Hi Guys,

Will it fit my Dainese Cage Leather Jacket size 50? Should i take air shield G2?

Thanks!
A shopper on Sep 2, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Hello,

While I cannot answer you question. What I CAN tell you is that I highly suggest you go with the Alpinestars Bionic Air Back Protector Insert. It's Level 1, but it's a lot more slimmer and will not give you too much of a hunchback like this Shield G2. The Shield G2 made me look like a ninja turtle...
hu,
does it fit in Xantum D-Dry?
thx!
Avi
A S on Jan 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: A, I don't know about the Xantum D-Dry, however my Dainese Shield Air G Level 2 back protector (size: G2) is 10 3/4 inches wide at it's widest and 18 3/4 inches tall when measured on the concave side. (The side against your back.) It just fits into the back protector pocket of my size 52, DUCATI Fighter Jacket (by Dianese of course) however you must work it into the pocket inch by inch. Once in the pocket it doesn't move at all.
Is there a trick to fitting this inside an Avro jacket? The jacket is size 48 and I can cram it in there but I'm not sure the zipper will close without ripping...
A shopper on Aug 30, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I'm assuming this is regarding the size G2 because it is larger and can be a very snug fit at first. I have the G2 in a size 50 Dainese Rebel jacket and it fits without a problem. One quick note, there are two pockets, of different size, for back protectors in my last two Dainese jackets. According to the Revzilla YouTube video review for the Dainese Shield Air G, the G2 size should fit jackets down to a size 48.
Is this comfortable using this with a backpack on as well?
Matt M on May 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I use it with a backpack almost every day, I've never found it to be uncomfortable. You don't really even notice it.
Hi. Will this fit my Dainese Razon size 52?Will it be too tight?And, if so, should I buy the G1 or the Wave?Thanks!
A shopper on Jan 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi, I currently use the air back protector in my avro leather jacket and it fits fine in the back pocket. it does bulge a bit when my jacket is zipped up but it is still comfortable and offers great protection. I was going to buy the wave because has a flatter profile but if I was going to use a back protector, I didn't want to half-ass it. Also, it does actually breath quite well.
My jacket actually has a divider in the back pocket, im guessing one side is for the wave and the other for the air.
Hi Guys, do you know if the shield air g2 fits into a dainese rebel tg 52? Thanks !!
Luca M on Apr 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure about the Rebel TG, but I have both the Avro C2 and the Talos in a size 50. The Air G2 fits in to both, though it's a very tight squeeze. I would wager that the G2 would fit any Dainese jacket in a 52.
And how thick does it taper down to at the edges?

Thanks!
A shopper on Jan 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: No measurement, but it did not change the fit of my jacket, without the winter liner. It tapers quite a bit to the edges....perhaps to about 1/4" or so.
Hello, will this fit Dainese Webber size 52? The jacket is shorter than others at the back, and not sure Shield will fit, and if yes - G1 or G2?
A shopper on Nov 6, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Measure your pocket and check the G2 diminsions on D site or ZLA by phone. I would bet it would fit, as the G2 I have in my 52 jacket stops at about my belt.
What are the dimensions of this back protector? It looks larger than the wave g back protector insert, will it fit in the avro jacket insert pocket?
A shopper on Apr 15, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The dimensions are 10.5" by 19". The Avro jacket has pockets for both the Wave and Shield Air back protectors.
