I just know some of you sicko's will run with the strap on part
I have the choice of getting a Dainese backprotector with a new Dainese suit (Nitro) for a really good price. I'm deciding on wether to get the regular Wave backprotector that has a waist belt and shoulder harness or a Wave T2 that snaps into the suit up top and then has a waist belt. I don't need a backprotector with any of my Vanson jackets because they already have one in each of them. So which one would be most safe, most comfortable and what kind do you Dainese suit owners use? Thanks

I have the built in Vanson in my 2 part suit. I went with the strap on Vanson on my one piece and have just changed to the Dianese BackSpace . I like the strap on because I think it stays in place better but it makes it harder to get out of my leathers because the top of the back protector hangs up on the collar at times. My impression is that the Backspace offers more spine protection but the Vanson has a wider zone of protection. I tested the Vanson and it worked well.

Re: Dainese backprotector. Snap into suit or strap it on??? (Ducaholic)

My Dainese back protector has a harness and velcro belt as you describe. I wear it with a Dainese Safety Pro suit and a Spidi Slider suit. A separate back protector, in my opinion, offers more protection because it is secured to the body.

Re: Dainese backprotector. Snap into suit or strap it on??? (socal)

I had a snap in A stars protector but exchanged it for the vest/strap-on variety. The snap in didn't feel secure and moved around while I rode, the vest type, as noted, stays secured as it's attached by shoulder straps, a belt at the waist and straps that velcro together at midchest.
One caveat is that the shoulder straps can rub you raw if you're riding and sweating (mine did at the track yesterday) so I'd suggest getting one with soft shoulder straps or wearing it over a tshirt and not a tanktop like I did.

I just use a Knox back protector.
