What’s good: Compared to other back protectors I’ve used this has bags of adjustability, the waist strap can be adjusted vertically, and as well as the main Velcro strap there are two stretchy ones at the sides to fine tune the strap for maximum comfort.

It comes with two kidney protectors which can be positioned on the Velcro waist strap – a nice touch which I’ve not seen anywhere else.

What’s not: Compared to other back protectors this one feels quite bulky – I definitely know when I’ve got it on.

Despite the huge level of adjustment it always seems to sit slightly to one side. Either I’ve not adjusted it correctly, or I’m a bit wonky.
