 Icon Brawnson Textile Overpants
Icon Brawnson Textile Overpants
Icon Brawnson Textile Overpants Understated style that goes over-the-top is the best way to describe the Brawnson Textile Overpants. Icon's relaxed fit and ultra-tough 900 denier chassis is a no B.S. combination. What else would you expect from a pant called Brawnson Remember the Brawnsons are an 'overpant' which means they are already sized up on size. Therefore buy a size 34 to wear over your size 34 jeans. If your plan on running your Brawnson's commando then buy one size smaller than your normal waist size. Icon loose overpant fit pattern Durable nylon chassis Removable/adjustable ce knee impact protectors Large thigh pockets with zipper closures

Most descriptions are right on the money: Order your regular size for over pants, and one size down to wear as jeans. I did not find the length too long while on the bike.
Solid construction, good fit, not too baggy - "American cut" I would call it. I feel more assured/protected wearing these as opposed to regular jeans. Open all the zippers on the pockets for improved ventilation. Certainly not mesh-like ventilation, but better than the plastic bag feel of wearing waterproof/breathable riding pants.

Sharp looking, solidly built crash bars. Perfect fit all around on my 2012 KLR650, and installation was a breeze. The black powdercoated finish matches perfectly with the new 2012 black KLR frame. No problem getting my side panels off with these installed. Highly suggested!

Just bought a '12 KLR 650, and at a towering 5'-9", looked into lowering links, etc to help get my feet down. The Sargent Low seat is the right answer! I keep the stock ride and clearances, and get a wider, lower, firm but very comfortable, high quality seat. I still can't "flat foot", but I'm only off by a bit now with both feet down - much better control. Longest ride so far is a 4 hours trip on it - very comfortable. Swapping the seat is a breeze. Highly recommended!
