Which back protectors are you using and recommend? Any pros and cons between differing types?

Most jackets come with pockets that you have to buy compatible back protectors for, what are you going to wear it under?

I used a long Knox back protector under 1 piece leathers for several years which was fine but if you have a pocket in your leathers it will be much more comfortable going with something that fits them properly. Have you looked on Sportsbikeshop’s site to see what options you might have?

Varies by the kit.

Have the D30 all over my Rukka textiles which for road use is less intrusive. on track in my 1 piece I use a long articulated Dainese protector with a substantial kidney belt too. the Dainese one is designed for riding in and not walking about...

The trouble with the ones that go in pockets is they’re usually too short and don’t protect the lower spine. I have a long Knox one that I’ve crashed in and find very comfortable and a newer Forcefield one, both are very good.

I took the pocket pad out and tossed it. Too short and was just a bit of foam.
I've got a Knox back protector in combination with a Knox chest plate. Works very well, i've used it on track, road, dirt and also snowboarding.

Oh yes - I forgot to add I use a Dainese chest plate on track too.. Not great for the Dad dancing, but feels good on the bike.

My Rukka also has a chest protector which zips on/off to get in it - great kit Rukka.

+1 on the L2K. A previous Forcefield did its job when I got cartwheeled through a ditch at 60+ on my 990 SD. Never ride without one now
