Looking for an Icon Vest - June 25, 2009, 01:40 PM

Anyone knows of a local shop that carries the Icon Vests? I tried a couple of shops in MD with no luck.

Just out of curiosity... what are plans for this vest?
I only ask cause I'm kinda of a gear junky... I think its important to
wear gear when riding... safety first
So aside from clubs getting vests to show their "colors" I don't really
see how they are usefull...

I wonder how that would fit under my jacket..I may have to go try one on..AND

does anyone know who this vest adds up to a track back protector or IS this a track caliber back protector?

I own Icon gear and that's why I'm curious.

As far as the club vest thing. Give it a break. Guys who wear their club vest over a t-shirt are the same guys who would ride without a jacket. Most who wear jackets simply wear the vest over their jacket. No one really thinks that the vest will or will not "save them" if a get off except the guys who like to point out the irony....it's only leather b/c of tradition of motorcycles and leather. give it a rest aready...


What do you value more? Life or Image?

I use one as a back protector for track days under my suit as well as under my jacket for more casual rides, have been down at a decent speed (60ish) in it and it did a great job, no pain whatsoever

I know Pete's Cycle up in B'more has them too

Actually that Icon vest is a cheap piece of plastic and not even CE rated.

Take the money you have, spend a few more bucks, and get the Joe Rocket Speedmaster which is made by T-Pro (forcefield). I've had both it's night and day the Speedmaster is a great value.

The T-pro forcefield, is very highly rated.
