I've been using these for a while now for commuting and short rides. It's a good boot for everyday riding---looks good, comfortable enough to walk around in, gives you an added sense of protection compared to a regular sneaker. Two things I hate about: the strap is too long and the Velcro on it is too tiny that it's basically useless, no adjustability whatsoever, and the laces are too short to go all the way up the boot, seems like it's for a low-cut shoe.
Icon Field Armor Stryker Vest The Field Armor Stryker vest is at the very heart of the Icon creed. A silhouette that broke with the conventional race derivative dogma and struck out on its own street specific course. Low profile back armor with high profile design. Back protection for tactical riding. The original Field Armor vest set a benchmark in the back protector world - the Stryker ups the ante. The back protector is loaded with d3o intelligent foam and full CE approval, the Field Armor Stryker Vest back armor is designed to take hits you hope will never come. Rock it under your jacket or over a hoody - just wear it. If today is the day that you go down, you want Stryker on your back. Features CE APPROVED STRYKER BACK ARMOR D3O BREATHABLE BACK INSERT, WITH CUSTOM MOLDED ICON GEOMETRY ARTICULATING INJECTION MOLDED HARD BACK ARMOR WITH AIR FLOW CHANNELS INJECTION MOLDED CHEST PLATE WITH INTEGRATED AIR INTAKES VENTED BIOFOAM AND AIRMESH CHASSIS HYDRADRYTM MOISTURE WICKING LINER HIGHLY ADJUSTABLE WAIST AND SHOULDER STRAPS LOW-PROFILE DESIGN FITS UNDER MOST JACKETS
The new and improved Icon Field Armor Stryker Vest looks great, much better than the original, in my opinion. The newly added D3O material is a big plus, but hopefully, I won't get the chance to test its effectiveness in a crash. The big issue for me is the "full adjustability." I'm 6'1" and 200 lb. The L-XL size was too small for my frame, so I went ahead and ordered a 2XL-3XL. The size (length and width) is perfect, but the fit is too loose, even at the tightest adjustment. The shoulder and torso straps are just too long. I'm planning to have an inch taken off each strap to hopefully fix this. My friend (we both have medium build) had the same issue with a smaller size, and the fix worked out great for him. Just make a fold at the middle of the strap and have it stitched up.
