    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protection Bought for wife and daughter. Both used on trip to Southern Backroads Hog rally. Got used to feel soon after installing and liked the added confidence of having extra protection in case of incident. Glad didn't get to test effectiveness as no incidents happened. Fit both styles of mesh jackets.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not fit the newest Winged 1 Mesh Jacket This back armor looks good but it is 5" shorter and 3" narrower than the pocket in the jacket. It provides no protection for the scapula or upper spine areas at all because it slips way down into the bottom of the jacket pocket. HD needs to make this right since it's obviously poor communication between the 2 manufacturers involved. Returning for a refund and have to trip into a store to see what they have that may fit.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not fit Service Sucks! I have an HD mesh jacket with pockets for armor I purchased in 2008. This plate for the back does not fit the pocket and no other shapes are available. Why? What am I supposed to do? Buy two and cut them up? This is very poor customer service and product support. I am disappointed in this entire process. These items with "HD" on them are unnecessarily expensive and should last years when you charge what you do. So why are you not supporting the products you sale? Straighten up and fly right or after 24+ years I may have to go to an Indian.

    DOES IT FIT FXRG Waterproof Pocket System Textile Jacket 98378-12VM?

    Asked by: NLC0389

    Have these been discontinued?

    Noticed these have not been available on the website for some time, and most dealers are sold out or not in stock. Have these been discontinued or replaced with a new model?

    I have two 5"x6" pockets in the back of my Harley Jacket. Can this be cut to fit?

    Asked by: SCTom
    Hi Tom, Excellent bike choice, My jacket is the Roadway Water proof, # 98234-13VM. This has one pocket in the back, I live in AZ so this jacket is perfect for our heat. I don't think I ever saw a jacket with two pockets But as far as the Armor goes, it can be cut, personally I wouldn't, The armor is 9" wide and 12" tall, it has three layers sewn in the center. Hope this helps
