Perfect additionReview by John
I bought this back pad to attach to my Darien jacket. To me having a pad to cover my back is a very important feature in a jacket. I think this pad should be included as standard equipment with the jacket as are the elbow and shoulder pads. Designed and fitted for the Darien it is comfortable and hardly noticed.

TF3 Standard Back PadReview by Bob
It was a piece of cake to install it in my Darien jacket. At first I could tell it was there. It wasn't uncomfortable, just felt different. Went out for a 300 mile day ride and by the end of the ride I didn't even notice it. I'm happy. (Posted on 12/3/13)
Back ProtectorReview by Rob
Securing the pad to the inside of my Darien was easy. Because of the weather I have only been able to wear this a few times. But I already like the feeling of it. The jacket feels more substantial with the pad secured on. First quality product. Rapid delivery. And I trust Aerostich products above most others. A good purchase. (Posted on 2/21/13)
Surprisingly subtleReview by Doc
I velcroed this pad into my Darien jacket and I don't even notice it's there. It is much less obtrusive than the built-in pad in my Joe Rocket mesh jacket. (Posted on 10/26/12)
Great productReview by Bizzthebozz
Great back protector, fits comfortably in the aerostich suit. Although it is not as protective as a rigid sports back protector it is less bulky, well padded and good for all day use. (Posted on 6/23/12)
Wish I had them last monthReview by David
I recently had a crash while wearing my Aerostitch Darien Jacket and Pants. My shoulder made the first contact with the ground. With the shoulder pads in my jacket my shoulder was completely protected and has no evidence of being in an accident. My back and side however are very sore (cracked rib) due to not having the additional padding. I have put the back pad in my Darien jacket and it feels great. I hope I never need the protection in an actual accident, but it sure feels great to know it is there if I need it! (Posted on 5/2/12)
Back PadReview by Arn
Good coverage. Could not be easier to install (in a Roadcrafter 1 pc). Flexible enough so the suit can still be rolled up for storage. And the belt works great to bind the suit after you roll it up (not the original intention, but ...)! Takes little space in the suit - but it does take some space. In those rare instances where things get too tight because of all the stuff I have on - it is easy to remove. Looked at other options, but all had one or more disadvantages (for me) ... could not roll up the suit, blocked the ventilation, required too much space, was not easy to mount, etc. (Posted on 11/29/11)
Aerostich Back PadReview by Skip
Go ahead and order the back pad with your jacket/suit. You won't regret it. (Posted on 11/23/11)
back padReview by bernie
Pad complements the Roadcrafter suit perfectly, adds little to the suit's weight and barely alters the fit. It would be better if the suit came with the pad pre-installed, like most serious riding jackets do, while still being removable. (Posted on 11/8/11)
Good padReview by busboy
After I put it in my Roadcrafter jacket and tried it on I felt like I had a backpack on inside my jacket. 5 minutes later riding my Ninja down the road I had forgot all about it. A big plus is it adds just a little more insulation for these cold fall days here in the Pacific Northwet. (Posted on 10/17/11)
