[QUOTE=eisen77;185461]Let us know what you think of the Yoxall @Forjox .
I really enjoy my one; such a fantastic jacket !
BTW, they donít come stock with back protectors and the pocket is relatively small, so this is the size youíll need should you choose to buy one:

Took my first ride with the Yoxall jacket this morning. I love it. Better air circulation than my leather and fit is great, even the sleeve length with a medium size jacket. Iíve ordered a level 1 CE rated back protector from Cycle Gear where I bought the jacket. Still have to get used to the ďgirlsĒ zipper! 🤪🤪🤪

Forjox, which back protector did you get that fit the Merlin Yoxall? Eisen, which did you get? I've gone on Revzilla and so far the ones I've seen are too large for the measurements that are in the diagram you posted. Thanks.

The Roleff level 2 I use is out of stock, so Iíd go with the KNOX back protector. I donít own one, but it got good reviews and Urban Rider sell trustworthy brands.

Never even heard of Roleff. Does it fit easily in the Yoxall? I see Roleff is where you got the diagram from. Like that it's Level 2. They have it here in the U.S. Knew I could count on you. I'll check it out. Thanks.

The Roleff fits easily in the Yoxall (and all Merlin brand jackets) & as itís so flexible it wonít be fiddly to install or rip the delicate pocket stitching/opening, despite being a near perfect fit.
Merlin have notoriously small back protector pockets! I hope they go bigger for their next generation jackets.
They should quietly copy Dainesesí idea of a twin pocket; one for smaller & one for larger protectors depending on size and preference.

I have not purchased a back protector as of yet. Iím not sure I will as I am still trying to get used to the elbow and shoulder protection in this jacket.

What do you mean ? Is it bothering you ?
Mine has never been an issue; in fact Iíve never given it a second thought...
