Furygan D3O Full Back Viper Protector - Back
Customer Product Reviews
I bought this for my wife's new touring jacket to replace the basic back protector provided as standard. We both have these in our sports jackets but sizes are different, hence this purchase. Certainly top quality and good value.
Soft and supple comfy and unobtrusive.
Clearly very well made, light and very comfy to wear. I just hope that I never need to prove its capability, but in the meantime it is unobtrusive not hard and bulky like some armour. Usual great value and prompt delivery from SportsbikeShop.
Good fit, good quality
5 stars based on look, fit and service. Can't vouch for performance but hopefully never need to test that and people seem to rate the D30 products. Bought because the Held D30 was on a long lead and wanted to match to my Harvey 76 jacket but this fit very well and is very pliable, I can hardly tell it's there. Great product.
No one tests a back protector ;-) but it fits
Like I say, No one wants to find out and I don't think there are any figures but who taking chances at this price? Remember the days before armour? Bought to replace the cheaper "strip" D3O protector in my Richa Gortex jacket. (Why didn't they just fit this one?) If you don't already know D3O, the unique selling proposition is that if you hit it quickly is goes hard, bur you can deform it slowly so it can mould to your shape. (Hot tip:- D3O appear to make a limited number of shapes of back protector with different branding. This one seems to be the same shape as the Richa one but costs less). It has vent holes to allow the air to pass through however you still need somewhere for the air to go after that so mess jacket - fine. Waterproof jacket - not so good, so it gets a little warmer than if it wasn't there but maybe in winter that's a plus. Overall, not restrictive or uncomfortable, fits the Richa jacket and even if it didn't, there is nothing to stop you cutting it with a Stanley knife.
Great product fits my Halvarssons jacket a treat
Bought to replace the protector in my Halvarssons Panzar jacket. It fits the pocket better than the Halvarssons one, is also much lighter, flexible and breathable. Jacket now feels much more comfy. Great service from Sportsbikeshop.
Big orange jelly thing
Don't be fooled by the size and thickness of this big orange jelly thing. It fits well in the Houston jacket and doesn't move about like some I've experienced in other jackets. It moulds well to the body in no time and doesn't feel like a plank shoved up the back either.
