    Looking to buy a back protector, not fussed on brand.

    Hoping to find one within the next two weeks, otherwise ill be going out to buy a new one.

    I'm guessing I'd be a large? Maybe a medium, never really tried different brands on.

    Obviously Im not a fat unit so I've never had an issue with the Velcro on mine. But Trezza knows best on every product ever.

    Just going from what I've seen mate.

    I'd be surprised if anyone made a back protector long and thin enough for you anyway, no matter how "fully customisable". Maybe they need laces like all the best snowboard boots, although it might look suspiciously like a corset... :lol

    I'm not sure how Binksy feels about being called fat though, the PC term is BigBop :ridgy

    Hey im quite happy dusting up these fit fuckers while proudly representing the 100+ club :)

    To be honest the velcro on my A* has been terrible since I bought it, now it just doesn't stay together and I've used it a total of probably 15 days including road and track.

    Bought mine for $70

    Ive got one hanging in my garage if you nede to borrow it for a raceday or something. Pretty sure its Dainese, I might have to start wearing it (over my hoody obviously), armadillo stylin.

    I've got a dianese one that I've had for years that I really rate but the elastic around the guts is starting to go. It has had heaps of use and is pretty old though. I also have a forcefield one which I rate pretty highly too. Bit bulkier than the dianese though.

    Thanks for that, bit more than what I'm looking to spend but looks good. I ride at the back of the pack too, so the Colin Edwards one is perfect

    If you order one online be careful with size, I thought a large would suit me but it ended up being this huge cloak made for someone of 200kg lmao. I still use it but it feels weird.

    I have a dainese one that's like a vest, it zips together has all the collar bone protection and stuff. I bought it a few years ago but it's still in great condition and I highly recommend them to everyone, I think Joes is the stockist and can order in all dainese stuff as well, I found it a benefit as it dosent move around at all under leathers.
