Pros: Light weight, excellent protection
Cons: Won't fit all jackets
I've been looking to upgrade the back protection on several of my riding jackets, and this looked to be a reasonably-priced insert. Got the medium size about a month ago and have tried it in my Sliders Carmel and Icon Hooligan jersey. The Bionic Air fits the Icon jacket perfectly, but just barely squeezes into the Carmel jacket -- a large size would not fit. Due to the heavier construction compared to the stock foam pads, the Bionic Air doesn't bend much, so it's harder to fit into tight compartments like in the Carmel. Once it's in, this is a fantastic back protector -- much more protection from pointy objects, and a LOT more padding in the case of a down. I highly recommend the Bionic Air back protector.
