Looking for a back protector

Something that can be worn on the track and the street.

Any recommendations?

I have the icon field armor vest. It's not bad for a 100 bucks, I wish it went higher up the neck as it stops just at the base. My Alpinestars one covers the entire spine all the way. The chest 'armor' part of the icon vest needs work if you ask me, but as I said, a hundred bucks well spent.

Not trying to be a but Icon is pure junk.

I think Tdubs will be selling a dianese back protector very soon fyi.

Their stuff is more blingy but the armor in their jackets isn't bad if you ask me (if you get a high end one that is) I have an old icon neo daytona hero and the armor in that is better than some of the newer icon jackets armor. There is no comparison to Dainese stuff, BUT even that said, the back protector that came with one of my dainese suits, that is garbage if you ask me. A* back protector is solid but I can only wear it with my suit. Any other jacket or two piece and it feels weird.

I bought the Contour 'street' backprotector and the chest protector about two months ago for track use and I love them. They take up some room under your leathers but after I get them under my leathers, I don't even notice them at all.

I bet Patrick from Motorcycles Unlimited or some of the other sponsors can get them for you.
