I want to invest in a back protector.

Has anyone got any tried and tested recommendations that I can buy in the UK? :)

Ive got a Forcefield, tried and tested by urs truly, picked a fence post at speed (unintentionally) did the job, I walked away.
What I like about it is, its nice and flat and comfortable

I have a Knox one which is OK but a bit bulky (old design now).

The Forcefield ones usually win the Ride triangle, if that holds any value for you.

I've got a dainese protector that fits great under all my riding gear especially the track leathers. I find it to be a great fit, not roasting hot and extremely light. I would highly recommend it albeit a little more expensive than other brands.

I don't know if you can get a hold of ICON products over the pond but I wear the ICON Field Armor Vest EVERY time I get on the bike. Ride Icon. It just recently literally saved the skin on my back as well as preventing possible injury when I went down about a week ago. I slid 20-30 feet on the back protector, it held up awesome and I didn't feel a thing when I landed on my back. Just has some scuffs now...

I use both the Knox and Icon. I like the Icon a little better since it has a front protection as well. Both are great and you can't go wrong.

Was this with or without a jacket? If only sweater or shirt, was it under or over? And glad your okay! :thumb:

I was wearing the back protector over my sweatshirt when I had the accident... but I do also wear the ICON back protector under my Scorpion jacket and it fits just fine.

I don't know if you guys ever heard of this company, but I use a highvelocitygear back protector.

No issues so far, I've had it for many years.
