I purchased these gloves on 03/10/2013. I rode in them for two days and one of the seams blew out on the ring finger. I contacted Astars to get them repaired, and there was no problem with that. I sent them the gloves and they fixed them and sent them back to me. Overall with shipping it took about 4 weeks to get them back. I have now been riding in them for a little over 2 weeks I guess and they are breaking in and starting to be more comfortable, but this morning when I was strapping the cuff down I wound up ripping the stitching out that holds the flap with the velcro onto the main body of the cuff. In all honestey it is only cosmetic so I'm just going to live with it and not send them to Astars to get fixed. It just makes me sad that I have had problems with these gloves in regards to the craftsmanship especially considering the cost. It does kill my confidence in the gloves when it comes to the durability in the event of a crash. I have a pair of Astars Apex gloves and those have treated me very well, and my wife has a pair of Astars SP2 gloves that she crashed in and they held up awsome, but the GP M/Plus not so much.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Icon Stryker Back Protector The ICON Stryker Back Protector starts with a custom molded bio-foam chassis. Designed to mold to your back, air channels within the foam allow heat to escape resulting in reduced fatigue. Secured to the chassis are three layers of impact absorbing foam which are capped by an articulated reinforced plastic shell. The reinforced shell helps diffuse impact forces. In addition, the shoulder and waist straps are removable providing you with the option of installing the back protector into certain Icon jackets. Features EN 161-2/03/AC2006 CE approval Removable shoulder and waist straps allows armor to be directly inserted into certain Icon jackets Custom armor plate finishing Comfortable and non-restrictive Custom molded biofoam chassis Imported

I upgraded my back protector in my overlord type 1 textile jacket in size large with the Stryker, I also use it in my Patrol jacket. Serious difference between it and the stock piece. It does fit pretty tight in the sleeve of the jacket, but i guess that's good to eliminate shifting. Expect to add considerable weight to your jacket when you upgrade to the Stryker. You can also wear the protector solo with no jacket, which is a nice feature, for those warm summer days when you may want to ride nude or something like that. I would recommend.

I got this for my wife. She is wearing an A-star Stella stealth jacket in size small. I got the medium size and it fits perfectly. Definitely a huge upgrade from the flimsy stock foam piece.

I actually got these socks for my wife for Christmas, so the review, and title are in her words.
Warm snugly, tight, bad a** socks. Definitely recommend.

Icon Overlord Type 1 Jacket Type 1 meets Type A. Aggressive, ambitious, and highly competitive. These are the the hallmarks of the Type A personality. Through years of research and development, we've extracted these traits from our Icon riders, such as Jason Britton, and imbued them into our textiles, armor, and patterns. The result is our new Type 1 Overlord jacket. It's lightweight yet rugged chassis, tailored attack fit, and multi-tiered defensive armor package expose it's true nature. Aggressive, ambitious, and highly competitive. In the urban sprawl, only the strongest survive - choose your gear accordingly. Icon attack fit Durable textile chassis Removable icon CE field armor impact protector elbow and shoulder Removable icon dual-density foam back pad Icon external injected plastic protection on shoulders, elbows and back Custom printed icon graphics Heavyweight ballistic impact panels Integrated fighter mesh panels for venting Gathered elastic flex panels on elbows and shoulders Removable insulated wind resistant liner Note 4XL size is only made in black color.

I got the overlord type 1 jacket. First off I love the way this thing looks, not to mention the safety features put into the jacket are top notch. I am 6'2" 200lbs with gorilla length arms and the large fits me perfect.
Yes, I recommend this product.
