D30 Back Protector Decoder Ring
For those of you who are trying to replace an existing back pad and would like to know the dimensions and tech specs of these protectors, here’s everything you need to know.

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.

Seemed fine until...
I just removed the armor from my jacket, no accidents but it is splitting in half. Looking around the internet I'm far from the first this has happened to. I won't be buying any more D30 that's for sure. I don't think this stuff is going to do a great job protecting me when it's in 2 parts...

A simple great upgrade for those who want CE Level Two protector.
I just got my DKR jacket and wanted to step up the back protection (CE 1) that comes with it. It is stiff when impacted, but forms to your back when you put the jacket on and move around. It is thicker compared to the level one that came with it, but that should be expected due to needing more material for protection. Good buy for those who want a simple upgrade for their Icon jackets.

Excellent, good protection for cheap
I bought this as an upgrade to the foam back protector in my Icon Hooligan 2 Stealth jacket. It was immediately obvious that this provides more protection. As well as being larger and thicker, it is also much more rigid that the stock foam. Not rigid enough to be a nuisance while riding though, in fact its hardly noticeable. This is definitely a plus of the D30 armor, that it is comfortable but very protective on impact. If anything, it is more comfortable that the stock thin foam, because it provides much more airflow to my back, which is pretty important in a black jacket.

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

Good product. Much better than the foam pad that comes with the jacket. Somewhat heavy, but solid armor on impact. Would purchase again.

Fits inside Fly Butane 4 Jacket
This back protector fits nicely in the Fly Butane 4 Jacket in the XL sizing.

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.

Cut to fit for an Olympia Airglide 4 Jacket
Customer service recommended these to replace the OEM pad on my old Olympia Airglide 4. They said to just trim to size. I cut off the "wings" and it was a perfect fit.

Great value but on the smaller side
I have a Klim Induction jacket, it comes with D3O CE1, which I decided to upgrade to CE2. I read some reviews about how the only difference between Icon and Klim D3O is price, due to Klim being a premium brand. It's not the only difference, as some others have mentioned its also size.

The Icon Viper 2's dimensions are 14 1/4" tall and 9 1/4" wide. As far as back protectors go, this is on the smaller side, particularly in terms of height. As a result, it left a lot of room in the pocket of my Induction. Fortunately, I was still able to use it as it fit nearly perfect in my new track jacket (1" of width and height leftover in my AGV Sport Delta pocket).

So, I bought the Klim D3O Viper T5 for my Induction, and it is measured at 17" tall and 10 1/2" wide. That's about 3" taller and 1" wider than the Icon. Is that $20 worth of extra D3O? No. But measure your jacket back protector pocket first so you can make the right decision for you.
