Icon D3O Back Protector Insert
Works great for Shift Air Avenger jacket
I bought this because I wanted CE-rated protection for my back. I have a Shift Air Avenger jacket and this Icon back protector was about as close as I could find in measurements to the original foam protector (16 1/4" x 10"). The Shift jacket back protector pocket has just enough stretch to it that allows the Icon back protector to fit without trimming. I did have to open up some of the holes of the protector, like others have mentioned, but it's not a big deal. I feel a little bit more confident in my gear now.

I purchased this to replace the foam armor in my Icon Contra. Armor is flexible and breathes very well. I can't attest to how well it works in a crash (knock on wood) but it feels better than the original foam. The only downside is it will make your jacket heavier but you don't notice it while it is on.

Great piece of gear.
Fit right in the jacket and I forget it's there most of the time. Super comfortable and a good price. Wish is had come standard and I wish my second jacket had a pocket to put one in.

Does exactly what it should.
We bought this to pair with my wife's Icon Contra jacket. It fits fine, maybe even a little small, and is HIGHLY flexible but it doesn't breathe well at all. There are some holes for airflow but most were covered up with untrimmed material from the mold so be prepared to spend time opening them up so you get some airflow. Other than that it looks like it will do exactly what we expect of t and the price was easy on the wallet. Paul

Haven't been in an accident yet, but so far, so good.
I bought this as back protection for my Roland Sands Design Ronin jacket. It was slightly too big for the back pocket, so I needed to trim it down to size.
The D30 material is lighter, breathes easier, and is less rigid than the stock armor that RSD sells.
Haven't been in an accident with it, so I can't speak to that aspect, but so far, so good.

Doesn't seem to offer as much protection as other traditional insert back protectors but makes up for it with comfort/flexibility. Bought it for my passenger jacket.

These protection products are made well!
As expected the armor was as described. Fit perfectly in my new Icon mesh hot weather jacket.

I bought it to replace the silly piece of foam that came with a jacket. It fit perfectly and other than adding some weight I can't even tell its there.
I wish it were available in more sizes, the thickness is perfect for a street jacket.
