Our Two Cents
The Alpinestars Bioarmor Back Protector Insert can be added to Alpinestars jackets or suit (that indicate they accept the back protector) for a substantial increase in protection. The Bioarmor Back Protector feels like it should do a great job absorbing and dispersing impacts, without adding too much bulk or stiffness to the jacket. The back of the protector is grooved for flexibility and perforated to promote air flow. At its thickest point (towards the top) we measured the bioarmor to be about 3/4 of an inch thick, while the majority of it is 1/2” thick or less. We took a few photos of the Bioarmor Back Protector in our studio (including a side shot), so click the “View Larger Images” link above for a closer look.
