I bought this a couple months ago over the winter and finally just got to use it on my 1st track day of the season. I rate this back protector with 5 stars based on Protection/Comfort/Value. Sure there are back protectors that offer a little more in protection, but cost more and may not be as comfortable. This back protector did not break the bank and fit comfortably in my suit and was light. When it heats up it conforms even more and is barely noticeable based on the size and weight (light). All of this, and the value, with it being CE Level 2 rated. If I were to go down (knock on wood) I feel this would sufficiently protect my back. I recommend this to anyone looking to buy a back protector that is CE2 rated and a medium profile inside the suit.
