I have the bionic vest. It kicks A$$! I use it every time I ride (yes even just to the store). It fits great, it very breathable, and durable. I like that it zips up unlike others with chinsy velcro. I use it under mesh jackets, my 2 piece a* suit, and 1 piece a* suit. I would recommend it. Infact I recommended it to Hooligan. For the price it rocks, especially since it is the same amount as the other just back protectors.

A* makes it and I got mine from motostrano. Be aware. I called them first to ensure they had my size in stock. That site is notoriously bad for business.

I have a Bohn & a Spidi Air. I crash tested both, and they both worked well. I do kinda like the Kidney protection of the Bohn though.

I'm using the Bohn back protector right now.

I like it, but sometimes it's a little hard to get my leathers over it without a little help.
