Dainese back protector, £110
Miles covered/time: 10,000/five miles.
What’s good? Having never actually crashed a bike to test the protection levels I guess you'll have to trust the manufacturers word on that.
All I can say is that it's perfectly comfortable, doesn't move around like some of its rivals, even under leathers on track it stays put.
What's not? It could be a little longer, I feel even though this is the biggest of the sizes available it would be nice to have more of my lower back covered.
Other than that it's spot on, hopefully I'll never find out if it actually works.
