The back protector does what it's supposed to do. The only improvement I would like to see made is for the waist strap to stay where it is positioned to start. This could easily be done by adding a few strips of rubber grip material to the inside of the strap so that it doesn't move once it's inside the suit.

I did three track days last year and bought this suit as my first suit after borrowing a friend's last year. The staff in the showroom were extremely helpful when I stopped by to try the suit on to make sure that it fit. With the stretch panels in the back and knees, it feels like a custom suit. I hope to never have to use it in a crash, but if I do, I definitely feel like I'll be well-protected.
