Customer Reviews for Held D3O Protectors - Back
D3O - what else do you need?
Look - it's a back protector, not too much to it. It has one job - to protect you. This? It's cheap. It's D3O. It's comfortable (I don't feel it and works as a pillow when leaning against a wall). I do not understand why would anyone go for something else. You can also cut it to shape if needs be.Read more
Comfortable in Frank Thomas textile 2-piece suit
I have the Frank Thomas 2-piece textile suit and it fits great in the back pocket. Can't feel it whilst riding either. Can't really complain.Read more
Best quality on the market
Not used 'in anger' but you can tell the quality instantly. Also worth noting that styling wise/thickness is not that much different to an L1 protector, so well worth the upgrade in protection for minimal aesthetic difference.Read more
So far so good. Fits perfectly into my Belstaff Corby Jacket.Read more
Soft but strong
Hopefully I'll never need it 'in anger', but being viscoelastic the protector is soft enough that it moulds to your shape, but toughens up in an impact. Once in my jacket, I don't notice it there.Read more
Top marks for Held D30-Back protector
As a new biker I was looking for something to upgrade the foam back protection supplied in my jackets and shirts. As D30 protection was supplied in jeans I had purchased and found it comfortable and flexible, I opted to upgrade to the same protection. The back protector feels very flexible whilst appearing to give a good level of protection. Good size options and found the large to fit into my jackets and shirts. Found the flexible construction contours to my back and is comfortable to wear and offers a feel of extra safety. Highly recommended.Read more
Replacement for cheap foam protector in my jacket. I feel safer with this protecter in. Bring old protecter into store to get correct replacement size. I ended up buying 2 for different jackets.Read more
Perfect fit, very comfortable.
Bought to replace foam in leather jacket but transferred to everyday commuting jacket it's so comfy. Perfect fit but could trim if needed. Well worth the cash. Feels excellent quality, very flexible and barely notice it's there. Can transfer to all jackets if pocket size similar. Fast delivery from sports bike shop and excellent service.Read more
Very comfy and lightweight to wear but at the same time you feel very safe with it. was looking for something not as bulky as others but still level 2 safe. Perfect in size ,some other companies of D30 make the protector shorter, not as big to cover fair amount of back, this one is perfect!! I really recommend itRead more
Great piece of kit
Excellent service, prompt delivery and quality product..i now have two of these, one fitted to my BMW leather jacket and the other to my Klim Gore-Tex jacket. Highly recommended.Read more
