Our Two Cents
This back protector is a CE level 1 product. The materials look and feel similar to the Pro back protector product except this back protector is a bit thinner, more flexible and the layers are only pinned together at one point in the middle (behind the logo). With each layer “floating”, and also because the outside layers are slightly tapered in overall size, the back protector flexes easily and the thickness is more tolerable than the level 2 product. For me personally, I’d opt for the more comfortable and lighter Super Lite model for a street jacket just because I think the thinner and more flexible design would stand a better chance of not being a bother. But of course you’d be choosing less of a protection level, so ultimately the choice is yours. :: Paul, 02-11-14
