The Forcefield ones are VERY good.

They are also not considered "disposible" in that they bounce back/do not stay compressed.

So as long as not ripped/damaged they will survive impact.

Go into a shop that sells these, try them on and get the one that fits, it will be about 80.

When I got some made to measure leathers done, I got them made up with Forcefield armour in them, but NOT a built in Back Protector.

I had said I already had a stand-alone one and instead they were made to fit OVER that.

This was due to the standalone being longer (it tucks into the back of my trousers) than the insert one, and hence provides better protection.

It does annoy me seeing people riding bikes with no gloves,, hoodie top etc. sad to say, 9/10 it's women on scooters.

Friend of mine came off his RD50 whilst only doing 15mph. Wasn't wearing gloves,,lost one finger and heavy scarring.

Never wore a back protector in the past, but have decided that it's going to be at the top of my 'To Buy' list.

So, just a mindful resurrection of this thread.

I achieved this little beauty sliding down the road at approximately 40mph.

My textile jacket is totally intact, the only explanation is that the armour dug in, my cuff worked loose and then gravel in my sleeve caused this.



cleaned and stitched:



Decided I dont really like playing superman with the tarmac and wont be doing it again soon.

Ouch. That looks painful. Puts me off riding in textiles. Not that I do very often.

It's a tad nippy, but I'm doing fine.

I had my textiles on as it had been forecast for rain, had it been a better forecast I'd have had my leather jacket on.

Ouchio GWS Jen

Still at least you were wearing some protection, and I've seen the usual crop of flip flop, short wearing bikers today.

They ought to be shown pics of your injuries, might wake them up, but probably not
