I got this to replace the foam insert that came with my new kathmandu jacket. The rest of the jacket has d3o armor so i just went with the flow.
Pros:
1. The original insert offered no protection. Its a great fit and no trimming was needed.
2. It breaths well
3. You can hardly tell its there after it forms to your back while riding.
Cons:
1. Part of the mold was torn off, about 1inch for the wavy layer. I guess it was a defect but i doubt it will harm the protection.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is a comfortable jacket with good air flow. It runs a tad large but has a lot of straps to customize the fit. The only problem i had was with the water bladder. If I'm riding for a bit the bladder will eventually pull further and further back until it starts to choke me. Then i have to pull the jacket forward. I may have to remove it completely.
The phone pocket is pretty big and fits my iPhone with its double protection case very snugly. If it didn't have the case it would probably drop right in. Most of the time i just put it in the side pocket for easy access to look at maps.
The ventilation is pretty good. I was driving around on the road yesterday in 85 degree heat and it wasn't too bad.
The back protector needs to be replaced though its very cheap. I replaced it with Klim Viper T5 D30 Back Protector and it fits great.
Yes, I recommend this product.
