Icon Squad 3 Mil-Spec Backpack Pack up, roll outits how we live. When the moment calls, its time to bug out and hit the blacktop with all the necessary gear in tow. To accomplish this, Icon engineered the ICON Squad 3 Backpack specifically for those that ride day-in-day-out. Revised and reimagined for the daily grind at legalish speeds. Updated graphics, a laptop specific pocket, unique front closure system, 360-degree reflective materials and our ICON Tri-Fit Closure System. Its a backpack built with the rider in mind. While the Squad3 is built with water resistant fabrics, Icon highly recommends the use of an aftermarket dry bag for any electronic equipment. Features UNIQUE RIDING CHEST STRAP SYSTEM WITH AIR MESH BACK PADDING INTERNAL POCKET CAN HOLD A D3O BACK PAD (SOLD SEPARATELY) CUSTOM TPU HARDWARE EXTERNAL LOADING STRAP FOR HELMET OR JACKET 360 REFLECTIVE MATERIAL HIGHLY DURABLE RIP-STOP NYLON CONSTRUCTION EXTERIOR TIE DOWN SYSTEM REMOVABLE EASY-ACCESS ID HOLDER

This is a quality made pack with good storage, great high viz color, strong fasteners and rip-stop fabric. However, if you are a military member or work on a military installation there are few problems you should consider before you purchase this pack. 1. The pack has no shoulder adjustments straps that allow you to adjust the height that the pack sits on your back and this causes the pack to ride low on your back and that intern causes the hook and loop ID pockets (positioned toward the top of both vertical shoulder straps) to raise up and sit nearly on top of your shoulders rather than lower on your chest making them hard to access with a helmet on. 2. Because the ID pockets ride up on top of your shoulders the hook and loop fasteners can become stuck to the fabric on bottom of your helmet padding making it difficult to turn your head. Not being able to turn your head while ridding a motorcycle makes for a distracting and dangerous situation. 3. The hook and loop fasteners on the ID pockets are so strong that they are very difficult to open when not wearing gloves and almost impossible while wearing gloves. So in conclusion, this is a decent pack but there are a few concerns that need to be addressed by ICON before I would be willing to purchase one again or recommend this pack to another rider. Hey ICON.....just lower the ID pockets down lower on the chest pads.

Been riding in this suit for about three months now at the track and on the twisties in the mountains around Mt. Fuji, Japan. Suit has good ventalation but may be too cool for late season or winter rides. Fit is good but be sure to use the fitment guide. Protection is pretty good but could use a bit more rib, back and chest protection. Only problem I have with the suit is that the liner is not well attached to the suit inside the sleeves. When ever I take off the suit the liner sleeves pull out of the sleeves and I've got to push them back in each time. It's good to be able to remove it if you want to wash it but it needs more or better velcro to attach the liner to the suit at the wrists. Overall, I'm pleased with the suit and would recommend.

I've ridden with these gloves now for about three months and they're great. good protection for knuckels, wrist, and in the ball of you palm. Fit is a bit tight so make sure to use the fitment guide. Would recommend.
