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.

Good back protection
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.

Good back protector
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.
