Reviews & Questions
The Icon and the Klim pads are both D30 pads and you can find all the info for both of them at www.d3o.com. Look under the motorcycle tab and you’ll find a listing for their “partner brands” (both Klim and Icon are listed) and a listing of the various types of D30 products used in motorcycle gear.
For more information on the Icon and Klim offerings, click on the “D30 Viper Stealth” or the “D3 Viper Pro” choices. This will take you to their specific pages and each will have an option for downloading a tech data sheet. The data sheets will have the dimensions and certifications for each product.
From the info in the product data sheets, I believe the Klim offering is a D3O Viper T5 Pro Back Protector in size large.
As for the Icon offerings, I believe their “D30 Back Protector Insert” is the D30 Viper Stealth product in size medium for the men’s choice and size small for the women’s choice. Also, the Icon “D30 Viper 2 Back Protector” is the D30 Viper Pro Back Protector, again in size medium for the men’s choice and size small for the women’s choice.
As you can see from the D30 tech data sheets, the Viper Stealth is 11mm thick and gets a CE1 rating. The Viper Pro product is 18mm thick and gets a CE2 rating.
I have experience with replacing pads in three jackets:
Klim Latitude Misano jacket: The Icon product in the men’s size is almost exactly the same size and shape as the pad that came in the jacket. I went with the “Viper 2” which is the thicker of the two D30 choices and rated CE2. While the original protector was rated CE1, it was very think, stiff and hot. The D30 is so much more comfortable that I can barely tell there’s anything in the back of the jacket. Also, while riding with the jacket vents open, I can actually feel some air circulating between the pad and my back.
I also ordered the Klim back protector to try in my Latitude jacket. It’s a bit longer than the Icon product, but there is a piece of Velcro in the jacket that expands the pocket to accommodate the larger pad. I’m sure the longer pad would offer slightly more protection, but it extended down lower on my back and the belt on the outside of the jacket pressed it into my back and I didn’t like the way it felt.
Revit Ladies’ Indigo jacket: The men’s version of the Icon product was very similar in size and shape to the piece of foam that came in the jacket. Both the CE1 and CE2 products fit, but my wife went with the CE1 product because she couldn’t feel it at all. The CE2 product made the back of her jacket noticeably thicker and also pressed into her back when she leaned into her back rest on my motorcycle.
Cortech LRX 3.0 jacket: I used the men’s version of the Icon Viper Stealth to replace the piece of foam that came in the jacket. The Cortech back pad is a funky shape so I had to cut the D30 to fit. I traced the original using a Sharpie and cut it with sharp scissors. It worked great and the D30 pad slipped right into the pocket in the jacket. The men’s Icon pad was a bit shorter than the original foam piece, but seems to cover my daughter’s back sufficiently.

I would not hesitate to buy this again, or to recommend any fellow rider to buy this as an upgrade for their current jacket.

This is the one to get since Kl?m charges double for the same thing.
The protector is on the thick side and rather heavy. But if you want the CE level 2 protection, that is what you have to deal with. This D3O guard does protrude through the back of the jacket somewhat. Not to a point that it is distracting though.
I would buy this back protector again.

This looks like the Klim D3O Viper T5 Pro Back Protector so what is the difference between them? Is the measurments/rating actually different or is it just somply a marketing and cost difference?
The CE Level 2 protector is almost 50% thicker, but it is also at least as much more noticeable. If you are wearing protection for casual use (an armored shirt or light jacket, used for work or doing errands), honestly I recommend the CE level 1 version since it is virtually unnoticeable. It's so flexible you can roll it up like a magazine. If it wasn't because it's CE Certified, I honestly wouldn't trust it for protection. However if you expect to push your machine, get up to highway speeds, or want a general use protector, go for the CE Level 2 version.
While I do love D3O for certain uses, if I knew I was going to get into a crash, honestly I'd rather be using a Forcefield Pro back protector which I use in my more "race" style jackets. It certainly feels more protective and provides more coverage, but that comes at the expense of weight, flexibility, and cost.
This isn't the best answer, but honestly it depends firstly on which jacket, and secondly on which size.
