I have this in a GP-R jacket and it's a great addition. It breaths great, adds very little weight to the jacket and I can't even tell its in.

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 first got this with an Icon overlord type 1 jacket. The back protector was on the bigger size, and left a hot spot on your back while worn in the jacket pocket. As a stand alone protector is fit well and stayed in place. I never went down in it so i can't really say on the protection and durability factor. I'm split on whether I would recommend to a friend.

I went from the stock screen to the ZG Corsa light smoke. Being 6'2" the stock screen didn't do much to deflect the wind. The light smoke shades the cluster a bit and I'm still able to see while in the tuck.

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.

Looks and feels like a great jacket. The solid back with the gray contrast looks great. I’m 6’3”, 180lbs. I ordered a large instead of a medium, so the sleeves would be long enough. The seat is also long enough to cover in the tuck position. The shoulders and arm length fit dead on. Both the chest and the stomach are a little loose but I would rather have that than not able to stretch forwards. The shoulder and elbow armor fight right in place. I did also upgrade to the Icon Stryker CE back protector. I can feel the protector but I would much rather have it than not. With the vest liner in or out I’m able to put a light sweatshirt on under the jacket and the fit is good with just the sleeves a little tight. Overall a great jacket and looking forward to riding with it next season.
With great product reviews and videos from Revzilla, comparing and shopping for product is about as easy as it can get. Not to mention their fast shipping.
