    I have a level 2 Alpinestars Bionic back protector, the one with the straps, that my kids brought me for my birthday, I have never worn it though as I can’t get it under either my 1 piece or my solo jacket as I have put on a few extra pounds since the leathers were purchased.

    Size L

    If anyone is interested I would be willing to sell it, as I have said its brand new and still in its box. The kids paid £119.99. So let’s say half price £60.00 plus postage. That seems more than fair to me.

    I'd say that's an extremely good price. I have that built in to my track vest and its very comfortable and much slimmer than my Forcefield gear.

    Add the size though BTW as I can't see it in the pic.

    Are you on TDR David? I reckon it would sell pretty quickly on there.

    Think it had straps like a rucksack with waist belt too if anything like the one I tried before I got my forcefield one

    Hi Lambchops.

    Like ^ said it has over the shoulder straps and around the waist meaning it doesn’t matter if you have a pocket or clips in your leathers. It feels very comfortable and moves with your body. I really like it and am extremely grateful for my kids buying it for me, however, as I have said both my jacket and 1 piece leathers are at the moment very tight meaning no room for it. It’s quite slim so it’s not the back protector that’s the problem it’s my age and eating habits.

    Bob into your local motorcycle dealer and have a look and if you like it, give me a shout.

    Hi Colin. I am suit jacket size regular 40”. I thought I would have needed a medium but after the kids gave me it I took it back the dealership they brought it from to exchange it and they measured me and said " L is perfect for you, medium would be too short and not protect your lower back". Not trying to push it on you just trying to give you informed information Colin.

    I'm pretty sure it does. I have the same one. Has a was it band with Velcro if I'm right and at the top there's a press stood which clips into my Astar leathers. I paid £120 too. Good back protector, especially with astar leathers.
