Back Protectors

I just got the last size large Knox Microlock Air that Revzilla had in stock. I did quite a bit of research into back protectors and decided to go with a strap-on style rather than an insert, the only reason being comments I found of inserts shifting out of position in a crash. To be fair, I'm sure some of those instances were probably due to poor fitment of aftermarket inserts added to jackets that weren't designed for that specific insert, and so it would be user error. I just didn't want to take a chance and I figured this way I could wear one protector with any jacket. Wondering if anyone else uses Knox protectors and what they think of them (I'm 100% sold on their gloves). If not, what back protector do you use and what style.

I use the various ones that came w/ my jackets OR (sometimes... AND...) one I got at Cycle Gear that incorporates a multi-plate spine protector and a "kidney-belt'.
