Rev'it Seesoft Back Protector Insert - RV Type
Customer Product Reviews
Bought to go inside my new Rev-It jacket the back protector sits in its pocket perfectly and does not move around. It is soft and comfortable but I suppose the acid test is trying it out in an off. I am so pleased with it that I am buying a new Seesoft protector to replace my Knox one in my leathers.
Bit of a squeeze to get it in the pocket - and not sure I remember clear instructions as to its orientation (big flat black bit towards your back and wide bit at the top). As much as I originally thought is was a bit bulky, its presence now feels reassuring.
Rev'it back protector
The armour is very soft and the layers move indepently at the edges but are fixed in the centre to give greater flexibility. It fits exactly into the pocket in the back of my partner's Eclipse jacket, she has commented that she feels that it's hardly there.
Good but confused which way round
A great little touch from Rev'It is they put a small label with the size of back protector needed, to which I needed a size 4 on my 44 Glide Vintage. I ordered online and received next day. When I got the back protector I was confused which way round to put it as the pics online show the blue side facing out (probably as it makes a good pic), And it didn't help that it was comfortable either way round. So I emailed SportsBike and they confirmed you should install with the grey side touching your back and the blue side facing away. If you search Dom Cat on YouTube I made a video about it that might help more. For the protector it is not as slim or playable as some other back protectors. Also it doesn't have great ventilation (as much as on your back can be!) which surprised me as Rev'It imo were the industry leader in flat witch-craft armour with their SeeSoft range (until D30 Ghost caught up years on). All in all it's the only protector that fits in Rev'It stuff so you're stuck either way, but you shouldn't be disappointed and it looks like it is more than up to a slide. It is full length and comfortable.
You can't put a price on safety. This back protector is a must have. As it's sized to the jacket it fits perfectly and feels comfortable when wearing all day. Highly recommended. Check the size chart to order the correct one or give the guys at SportsBike Shop a ring and they will help you out.
High build quality
Given that this was a "freebie" with the Rev'it jacket, I am seriously impressed with it. Other jackets I have, have back protectors which are a single piece of memory type foam. This multi layered item feels firm but pliable, is unnoticeable on and gives me great confidence in its protection.
