Solved the hot back
I ordered this on a whim to replace the foam back pad in my Tourmaster Flex 3 mesh jacket. It fits well and I don't even notice it's there. Air flows right through it like it wasn't there.<br><br>I don't expect this will be great protection but it will be at least as good as the flimsy foam pad that came with the jacket without stopping the wind.<br><br>No more sweaty back on the way to work!

Used it for my Roland Sands Ronin
I cut it along the thickest and most sturdy center to form a piece that fits into my RSD Ronin back armor pocket. Still thinner and more flexible than the ForceField insert made for RSD.

I admit, doing this would probably render the piece less than CE-1 rated. I think it gets the rating because the piece, while thin and very flexible, actually covers most of your back in its original form.

But I'm happy with the mod and I think most riders would be as well if they find the RSD FF piece to be a bit too heavy.

Suitable for brand new Rukka Airman jacket
Because lack of new D3O back-protector, I prefer this item to protect my back, it's perfect fit for new Airman jacket. I would advice this product combination with it.

Look better than they work
My wife and I both wear Rukka Air Vantage pants and jackets which were equipped with RVP armor. The suits are 6 years old, and I'm now replacing the armor for the third time...this time with D30 which is far superior to the RVP type. An impact to the elbow through RVP from a parking lot tip over broke the skin on my wife's arm, though the bone itself was not damaged. Plus, all of the RVP pads begin cracking badly after about 2 years. Some have even broken in half. Too bad the D30 back protectors don't fit many of Rukka's jackets, or I'd be buying 2 today.

This product broke in two as if cut by a knife
In the intersection in between the top and bottom part, it just separated into two parts without having any incident, of course, just by using the jacket for 10 times.

Bought an air flow jacket. Did not want to defeat the purpose of that buy buying a solid non flow shield.

Added this into my mesh jacket to replace the foam pad that was there. Might not be any better or worse for protection but it flows a lot more air. My back doesn't get as warm.

What are the dimensions on this unit (lenght, width & thickness)?
A shopper on Nov 19, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The Rukka RVP Air Back Pad measures 20 1/4" top to bottom, 11 1/2" at its widest point (those two bulges), 4 1/4" on the top end (right before the bend), and 8 1/4" on the bottom end (right before the end). It is a little bit less than 1/8" thick.
Will this back protector and jacket set fit the Joe Rocket Super Ego jacket?
Anders N on Jul 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It might be a little long for that jacket. I tried it in mine (which is a 3XL) and it curls a bit at the top. You notice it when you're paying attention but it's never bothered me while riding and I quickly forget about it.

My concern would be if you're wearing a smaller size it might curl up more and be a problem. Revzilla does have a great return policy so it's worth a shot!
What's the thickness of these pads in the middle? I'm looking for something very thin to use in an existing leather jacket.
Max W on Jun 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The back protector is about 1/4" thick across. It's flexible and the combination makes it almost impossible it tell it's even there.

It is only limited protection of course, but better than nothing and I'm sure Rukka made it the best they could within the size and airflow capabilities of this back pad.

BEST ANSWER: The Rukka RVP Air Back Pad meets the requirements of CE Norm prEN 1621-1 2010 ("Level 1"). If you are looking for Level 2 performance, check out the Rukka D3O Air Back Protector.
