I was wondering what kind of back protectos the women ride with? I seem to only find ones that are too big for me. Any help would be great.

I dont know of any women only back protectors so i assume that its whatever fits you comfortably. Try some on and use whatever you like best.

<font color=blue>smknchk</font color=blue>,from your profile picture I can't really tell how tall you are but it appears you have a small athletic type build. I'm about 6' and weigh in just under 140lbs and I ride with the Dainese Backspace 2 protector. Dainese offers 3 sizes to fit individuals of different heights; I believe the Backspace 1 is the smallest offered (I have the info at home in an email I believe).

Here is a past discussion on back protectors from the Apparel forum...

Here is a blurb on Knox/Bohn back protectors as reviewed by http://www.roadracingworld.com

Note, the Dainese protector shown/mentioned is a BAP model, not the Backspace line of protectors.

Most any back protector will work just fine I think, it just comes down to comfort, style, etc. I usually wear the Impact Armor protector combo for track days, but I have a Knox protector that's good as well, although it doesn't have a chest protection unit. I used to wear an Alpinestar turtle-style one, and that was good too. See, they're all good :)
