Fall 2010 Icon Waterproof Textile Gear Guide

The newest foray for Icon in their 2010 Fall Gear lineup is Icon Waterproof Textile Gear. Leading out of the gate is the Icon Patrol Waterproof Jacket and the Icon Patrol Waterproof Overpants. This combo couples with the Icon Patrol Waterproof Gloves and you become immune to the elements. The two other brand new products are the Icon PDX Waterproof Shell which pops over your jacket and the Icon PDX Waterproof Bib, pants with suspenders made exclusively to keep you dry.

Starting off with the Icon Patrol Waterproof Jacket and Icon Patrol Waterproof Pants, this outfit is the most technical all-weather textile product that Icon has produced to date. The Icon Patrol utilizes a seam-sealed waterproof nylon chassis with waterproof YKK zippers and a magnetic storm flap. Removable CE rated Field Armor provide impact protection and the jacket has an upgradeable dual density foam back pad that can easily be swapped for the Stryker CE back protector. The jacket features a ton of intake and exhaust vents, a removable hydration pocket and a removable Thermolite insulated liner.

Between the jacket and pants, there is a ton of storage with 12 pockets in the jacket alone. 3M Scotchlite reflective panels ensure that you will always be visible no matter how dark it is outside. Both the jacket and pants are available in US Military PPE Hi-Vis spec and the pants feature a removable suspender system to make these a true overpant. Icon has thrown their R&D department and this outfit and it is going to stand up to any elements that mother nature will throw at you.

Complementing the Icon Patrol Waterproof Jacket & Pants is the Icon Patrol Waterproof Glove. They feature a fully waterproof textile chassis with highly abrasion-resistant premium grade Battlehide Goatskin on the palm for extreme durability and optimal tactility. Reinforced rubber knuckle armor provides superb protection and the reflective paneling ensures visibility. Lastly, one of our favorite touches is the visor wiper system on the thumb. The Icon Patrol Waterproof Glove is pre-curved in both the palms and the fingers.

Moving along to the oversuit department, the Icon PDX Waterproof Shell goes over your jacket while the Icon PDX Waterproof Bib pants go atop your motorcycle pants and you're immediately covered from the elements. Both the Icon PDX jacket and pants feature Tasloc Ripsop Nylon and YKK waterproof zippers for the best in waterproofing. They built this outfit in always-soaked Portland, Oregon so you can be assured that it offers top-of-the-pile performance.

The jacket features a roll and tuck away hood that seals up against your neck and can cover your head when you take the helmet off. The pants feature cargo pockets and adjustable bib straps with removable stirrups at the bottom, depending on your preference. Both the Icon PDX Waterproof jacket and the Icon PDX Waterproof pants feature a comfort mesh liner and are available in US Military PPE Hi-Vis specifications.

We are impressed to say the least with this new line of Fall 2010 Icon Gear. They really have taken their game to the next level and are making themselves even more of a contender in the world of sportbike and street gear. Stay tuned because we have a lot more to come from Icon!
