Product Review: Halvarssons Shield L2 back protector

Halvarssons Shield L2 back protector, £119

Time tested:  Six months

What’s good? I always make sure my daily riding gear has back protection built-in as I find it less bothersome than having to put on a separate one for each ride. However, I’m starting to get a bit more serious track time under my belt now and I welcome the reassurance this protector brings. It’s made of - what feels like - ‘memory’ foam, so it moulds around my back to provide a really solid, comfortable and custom fit. Luckily I’ve not had to test the actual shock protection but it’s CE-rated up to EN 1621-2 Level 2 (the best available).

What’s not? It seems a little larger than some on the market, but that means a wider area is protected.
