Tested this out on my last race weekend. Very comfy and low profile when use under leather. Not the ultimate in protection but more like an extra layer of protection but without the bulk.

Tryonic See+ Back Protector Compared to the Feel3.7, the See+ back protector offers a slightly lower impact value (7,7kN), yet still clearly within the CE Level 2 norm (EN1621-2) but at reduced weight and using a thinner outer shell, thus offering a perfect alternative for those enthusiasts out there preferring lower weight over higher impact values. The See+ weighs only 660 gr (average) yet offers an unsurpassed combination between ergonomic design, comfort and high performance shock absorption. The EPS inner core ensures high level energy absorption (7,7 kN energy release). Another unique feature is the patented adjustable belt closure (T.C.F. Tryonic Custom Fit), ensuring a perfect for every rider. As the See+ has been tested for winter sports, up to minus 20 degrees Celsius without performance loss, it is the perfect choice for a variety of winter sports athletes as well. Features Outer shell in Polyamide fabric surrounded by thermoformed padding, Polypropylene Outer Shell EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) inner core CE Level 2 (7,7kN) EN 1621-2 standard Ergonomically shaped, follows the contour of the body fluently T.C.F. Tryonic Custom Fit closure system (patented) Polyamide stretch mesh panel Air vent channels in outer shell Tested for Winter Sports to -20 C Average weight 660 gr Note The Tryonic Back Protector has different number of segments depending on size.

My only experience of back protectors are limited to my first one I got, Forcefield Sub-4, exclusive for track use. So I will mainly be comparing The Tryonic SEE+ to that.
Finally decided to replace all those level-1 "back protector" that came with my jackets for street use. I was looking for something light, with a slim profile and level-2 certified and the SEE+ seems to met all my criteria well. First thing I noticed about the SEE+ is how light it is and how the articulated design moves with my body well; Especially compare to my Sub-4 and because of that, the SEE+'s harness can be and is much more snug and form fitting. The harness is very well designed and provide lots of adjustability.
The hard-shell design works best if you are the kind of rider that wore back-protectors without a jacket (tsk-tsk). It provided some added puncture resistance and slide-ability but the trade off is being a hard-shell BP, it usually meant it is crash-and-trash kind of gear; in addition the gaps between the articulated parts might get caught on stuff when you are sliding on your back wondering "did that car just cut me off?" or "I knew I shouldn't be pushing it so hard on my out lap". Hey, but at least you don't have to feel and look like you are wearing a rubber floor mat on your back. (cough *Forcefield* cough).
While the level-2 rated at 7.7Kn might not be as low as the Forcefield Sub-4 or the FEEL 3.7, but it will be far superior than 99% of the stuff that came with your jacket. The low temp rating with be a feature that is unique to this line.
I think for the price of $150, it is a great product and provide some added insure to protect yourself from drivers that are "sharing" the road with you......ALL OF THEM.
Cliff notes:
- light and move with your body.
- form fitting, great harness.
- Does not feel like wearing a rubber floor mat.
- hard-shell construction = crash-and-trash.
- Take a look at Forcefield Sub-4 or Tryonic FEEL 3.7 for better Level-2 rating.
