Get something else!
This is probably the only bad review of this item here at Revzilla, but, I've actually crashed in it.<br><br>I had this back protector in my Dainese Rebel jacket when I had a 50 mph lowside. I fell and slid across the opposing lane while tumbling at least 3 times. I suppose it did its job (I can always assume it could've been worse) as I was able to get back on my feet, and did not suffer any major issue, but boy, did my back ache.<br><br>I believe the problem is with the general shape of the product. It is shaped like an undersized turtle shell. I'm 5'10, and the size of the g2 only covers a minimal area of your back. My back was bruised specially with the outline of the back protector. Another issue I have with it, is that it is a hard back protector. There's no soft cushioning layer on it and the energy absorption is based on "crumple-zone" technology. This is not a bad thing but soft cushioning should've been incorprated. Also, since it uses crumple zones, it's rendered useless after a crash. It's also only rated "level 1."<br><br>I believe there are better alternatives for back protectors here at Revzilla which offer better ergonomics and crash absorption technology at a reasonable cost (I think Forcefield offers a better value proposition). I'm a big Dainese guy, and after this experience, have put other Dainese products to the test. Unofrtunately, I'm gonna cross back to other brands with back protectors...

Great product
This is my second Wave G back protector. My first one I picked up at a Dainese store. I needed to fit it into a non-Dainese jacket.<br>It was the exact shape I needed. Feels great, way more safer then the foam pad the jacket came with.<br>It does make the jacket a little tighter, something to consider if buying a jacket.<br>I think all jackets should have CE approved pads stock but that would drive prices even higher, I just wish more people would replace that cheap foam pad in their jackets. Seems like people are more concerned about the bike they ride over the protection they need to have.

Hope to never need it
But will be glad when I do! The back protector is easy to install into my Dainese jacket and is comfortable and breathable. Didn't really notice a difference with it in my jacket and I'm sure it'll save my back if I ever need it!

Comfortable and Confidence Inspiring
I have two of these and they're really comfortable to wear. It's not too intrusive in your jacket and is fairly thin. Keep in mind your jacket will fit tighter with this thing in. Highly recommend back protection anytime you ride.

I use this inside my Dainese Aspide Jacket, and it fits just great inside the jacket, leaving me feeling quite protected with it. Just what I needed for my jacket, great complement.

I forgot I have this in my jacket!
This back protector is truly wonderful. It's stiff, yet flexible. Very very light and super-comfortable. I literally forgot I have it inside my jacket and only realized it when I saw it in my order history here.<br><br>I haven't happen to see its protective qualities, but from what I saw it looks super-sturdy and pretty thick. Will definitely save your back in a slide in case your jacket doesn't hold up.<br><br>It's also well-padded so I believe shock-absorbtion should be spot-on as well. Let's just all hope we never need to check if it's true.<br><br>Comfort-wise this thing is invisible. It's breathing well, very light and curves around your back perfectly.

Great fit for my Dainese jacket, good purchase.
I bought this to complete the last item on my list of gear. After considering other harness-types, I went with the G2. The fitment was perfect and I have complete coverage of my spine, from lumbar to upper thoracic. You forget it's there after about 20 miles, no joke. Good protection for the price, very satisfied.

Don't even know it's there
Sizing is as stated. I bought this and dropped it right in the jacket pocket for it... haven't even noticed it's there. Of course I went to this product from a velcro-around-the-waist back protector, so yeah I expected it to be more comfortable and convenient.

Fit well in the Dainese Shotgun jacket. I got the G2 for a size 50 jacket.

Does what it should do
Good back protector. Smaller than the Dainese Air but has a hard shell. Fits perfect in Dainese leather AVRO and Air Frame jacket. Doesn't fit in the Textile AVRO jacket by D. The pocket is for a shield Air G by Dainese.

I don't expect to enjoy the cushy foam padding that comes with most jackets for more than a millisecond before my back snaps. So an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Hey, quoting Grandma on RevZilla is perfectly cool in this context.

whats the difference between this one and the wave D1 and the manis ?
A shopper on Mar 26, 2015
Hi,
I have a size 50 WOMENS Dainese jacket and I'm wondering whether to stick to the gender advice and buy the G1 or to buy the G2, which they say to buy for size 50 and bigger... The more protection, the better, right? I don't want the protector to be floating in my jacket, but I do want it to fit and not to be too big...
Which should I buy?
Thanks!
A shopper on Oct 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Just a thought...

Get the dimensions, cut out a piece of cardboard and see how it fits.

I'm no expert, but I agree bigger is better and a tighter fit would be much more comfortable.

Good luck and you can always return, Revzilla is awesome that way.
How do you insert this properly into your jacket, with the wide end down or up?
A shopper on Nov 23, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I put it with the wide end down. The same way the logo faces.
Does this back protector need replacing in the event of an impact?
A shopper on Feb 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would say Yes. They say you should replace a helmet after any impact and I would do the same for any body armor. It's cheap insurance!
I have a Dainese Air-3 jacket (men's) but it's a size 44 (Euro). I know the rule of thumb is G1 for women and G2 for men, but, as a thin guy (31" chest) I was wondering if I should stick with the G2, or go down to the G1? Thanks!
A shopper on Jul 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: My jacket is 54 and I use the G2
My wife's jacket is 46 and she uses G1..
In your case (size 44), I definitively would go down to G1

Mario - Sao Paulo Brazil
Triumph Tiger Explorer
I currently have a Cage size 44 mens jacket.
I've been informed by some other stores that for a size 44 mens, I should be using the G1 as for someone of smaller stature would feel it to be less obtrusive. Would it be possible to put a G1 in a men's 44 jacket?
A shopper on Apr 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will fit and comfortable too. I also have a size 44 jacket and the back protector fits and is not too big and bulky. I am very happy with it.

A S on Oct 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi.
To my mind
yoou should take bigger
bigger always better than small ))

with bigger you can have only one problem - it can be bigger than pocket on your jacket. In this case you can change it.
Also back protection - is one of the most importent part. With bigger protection you have more chanse to be save in crash.

sry for my English and good luck
Hello, I have bought an air G level 2 G2 for my Dainese crono textile jacket, and it does not fix on it. Does the wave G back protector work better for that jackect?
Thank you
A shopper on Aug 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: According to a review that jacket will accept http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/dainese-shield-air-g-level-2-back-protector or the Wave G2. Personally I would use the Wave G2 it will flow more air
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: The wave is basic protection, where the air has a bit newer tech in it.
I think the main difference will be what fits your jacket.
I recently bought a Dainese Greyhound Leather Jacket size 48 and want to add some back protection. The review video suggests a G2 for size 50 and above, should I follow the Revzilla review advice and buy a G1, or follow the gender guideline(I'm male) and buy a G2?
A shopper on Mar 31, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The Dainese Wave G Back Protector G1 is made to fit all Women's Dainese jackets, and the G2 will fit all Men's Dainese jackets. This should make it fairly easy to decide, and for you, we would recommend going with the G2!
