Note About Shipping: Items that show an availability of “Same Day” are physically located in our Lubbock TX warehouse and will ship on the same day as ordered if you order by 2 p.m. central on a weekday (or the next working day if ordered after 2 p.m central.)
Items showing “3-5 Days” will ship as soon as we receive the item from the Dainese US distribution system which can range from one to four weeks. The Dainese US distributor relies on inventory in their US warehouse as well as inventory overseas. Unfortunately their system is not capable of giving us a more accurate real-time estimate . If you are concerned about the shipping time on any particular item showing “3-5 Day” availability, please reach us using the Customer Service link here on our website, otherwise, we’ll assume you are OK with the longer time frame for delivery.

The Pro Armor Lumbar protector is offered in “sizes”, and for each size, there is a choice of two heights. Here’s how to choose:
First, choose what “size” you need based upon waist size:
Size XS/MED: up to 38” belly
Size L/XXL: up to 48” belly
And then choose which height you need based upon the measurement from the base of your neck in back (shoulder height), down to your waist (to the center of the waist belt of your typical pants):
Short: 39cm-46cm (15.4”-18”)
Long: 46cm-51cm (18”-20”)
We found the measurement of “shoulder to waist” is highly subjective and varies depending upon who takes the measurement, so to help you decide which type you need, here are the actual measurements of each back protector type:
Short: 9.5” (and about 9” wide)
Long: 11.5” (and about 9.5” wide)
Our Two Cents
This lumbar support by Dainese is made with similar technology to the other Pro-Armor products from Dainese… back protector, armor for jackets/pants, etc. It is made of a semi rigid rubber material that is formed into a lattice type structure to absorb impact. One advantage to this construction type is that it breathes really well and its VERY flexible.
Dainese says: Boasting EN certification and constructed of flexible expanded nitrile rubber, the Pro-Armor Lumbar is extremely comfortable while still offering excellent lower-back protection.
