Back protector?? what to get!

Well, i have my leathers, one piece, with all the armor, including the back protector, but it's like a pad,really.

Im already eyeing some better racing boots (mine are mainly for touring), but I realized that I may need a back protector, so i want some imput from the guys that already have a back protector.

I would like to get one with the kidney belt, but I heard things like "Alpinestars back protectors are uncomfortable" and such, but since I have never used one, well....

What you guys are using, anyway? I want something confortable. I don't want to be riding and squirm beause the thing fits like .

i pulled the pad out of my suit, went to CycleGear and got a Dainese BP8 spine protector, pretty comfy, it helps me alot with my lower back, usually have a little pain but, with the velcro stretch thingy it has, it actually tightens up and helps me out, so no back pain at all while riding...

That ICOn looks tight,but with a fully armored suit the shoulders of the ICOn, plus the shoulder armor on the suit will lift the leathers and I'll look like a gargoyle.

Knox makes an excellent back protector. One of the few CE approved ones on the market and they work very well.
Leo, come by if you're interested I've got some and I'll hook you up.
