Knox Back & Spine Armor Protector If you have read my jacket reviews (and I certainly hope you have), you know that one of my pet peeves is that apparel makers typically don't include CE-approved back (spine) armor in new jackets. Sometimes the jackets have a cheap foam insert; other times you get an empty armor pocket. With this sad fact in mind, safety-conscious riders need to shop the aftermarket for CE-certified back armor.

I have always liked Knox armor. It has come standard in several Teknic jackets that I have owned. The TP2 CE Back Protector fits all Teknic jackets, all men's REV'IT jackets, and dozens of other applications. The incorporated technology is what Knox calls "trauma lite honeycomb" protection. It is a good design not only for protection but also for cooling. Poorly designed back protectors can be a heat blanket, but the TP2 has deep channels that help dissipate heat and moisture.

Again, it is a shame that we have to buy CE-approved armor to complete our jacket's protection. However, Knox has made a quality product here, and the price is reasonable. So if you have a cheap foam pad or an empty pocket in the back of your motorcycle jacket, take a look at the TP2. Make sure you carefully analyze the shape of the pad and the shape of your armor pocket to make sure they match.
