I hope I never find out how good this is
The Dainese Wave G is a very well made, high quality back protector. It instills confidence by its design and feel. It is very light and airy and adds little to the weight of a jacket. I was told that my jacket, the Shift Airborne, was made with the Wave G in mind for its back protection pocket. However, no one at Dainese, Cycle Gear, or Shift could pinpoint the best size to get - G1 or G2. Since my jacket is a medium, I went with the G1, which is the smaller protector. Well, shoulda went with the G2, which clearly would offer more back coverage and is the size the jacket is made for. Anyway, I'm still happy.

PROS: Solid Construction, High quality materials, Airy, High Quality Finish, Very light

CONS: Pricy, More customery service, Sizing is not easy

crazy good
I thought like all these reviewers it would be awkward and annoying. I was wrong. The soft material that sits on your back (through my jacket mesh)is very comfy and ventilated well. You can't really feel it, even walking around. It looks like a small turtle shell and feels incredibly solid. I was skeptical about this from the start and thought it looked too impractical to actually use, but it's amazingly natural. I would never go back now!

PROS: Fit feel protection

CONS: Price

I would buy this product again
I use this back protector in both my joe rocket mesh size 3xl jacket and also in my Alpinestars Mert leather jacket. It instills confidence by its design and feel. It is very light and airy and adds very little to the weight of a jacket. It is well worth every penny as I put it to use recently in my alpinstars mert jacket in a lowside accident into a ditch on a backroad at a decent speed. I am very thankful for the protection it provided, becuase i had no back injuries whatsoever.

PROS: Superb product, Breathable, Abrasion Resistant, Protection, Comfortable, Lightweight, Tough

BEST USES: Long Rides, Street Riding, Sport riding, Poor Weather, Protection, Back road twisties

Safe and Comfortable
This is the first back protector I've used that fits perfectly in the jacket and on my back. I don't even know it's there, and (hopefully) I will never need it to save my life. But if I do, I know it's in the right spot on my back. Buy with confidence.

CONS: None

BEST USES: Safety Always, Protection, Long Rides

Perfect match for a jacket
I bought this to use with a Custom Built mesh jacked and it fits well (although I have to put it in inverted).

Once the jacket is on I don;t feel it and is breathable. It is comfortable even on the heat.

PROS: Stylish, Lightweight, Comfortable, Tough, Breathable

Awesome feeling
This protector is very comfortable and comforting when riding my CBR hunched over. I wear it in an Alpinestars jacket, as it fits perfectly, and I always forget it is there. It is very unobstructive and doesn't create much extra heat. I wouldn't want to wear my jacket without it at this point and it always sits in the right place for me.

PROS: Abrasion Resistant, Breathable, Tough, Comfortable, Lightweight

BEST USES: Racing, Protection, Street Riding, Long Rides

A Must Have
This protector is top of the line. I thought it would be bulky or weird feeling but when I put it in my Air-Flux jacket it felt natural. You can also see the red Dianese logo through the mesh on my jacket so it looks pretty cool. Definitely get one if you want to be protected from road rash.
