Back Protectors - June 16, 2006, 10:26 AM

I was looking to get a new back protector and ran across this from Alpinestars: http://www.kneedraggers.com/details/...5-ALP05-1.html

Does anyone know of someone who has this?

I am thinking about buying this one as it has the chest plate, back plate, and GP armour in the shoulders and elbows.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

that thing is pretty cool if the armor is better, just take the foam out of the jacket, (in your case the suit)

Actually, you can see it on the left side of the picture.... this is what he though of it, and the situation.

Damn...sorry to hear about him. How is he doing now?

What recommendations do you have for a back protector? As none of them will be invencible to damage...

Man you almost can't go wrong with dainese, they make good armour. Usually a little pricy though. Went down in a Dainese full leather suit nothing more than a crook in my kneck afterwards.

My 2 cents

How bad was the wreck? What kind of internal damage? What would have happened had he not been wearing it? Just curious. I see lots of armors all the time, but it doesn't seem like there is anything out there to really guage how well they protect, and what they do for ya, so it seems all you can do is try and learn about them from other accidents...

COST should not be an issue now that you know someone that it saved

I can see it only helping if you are getting impaled. I prefer a nice leather or thick textile.

try on some differents back protectors with your riding jacket or leather suit because some tend to rise up and get in the way when you turn your head left to right
