Icon D30 Back Protector Insert

An advanced, patented polymer, CE-rated D3O® impact protectors are the latest advancement in protective armor. D3O® impact protectors utilize intelligent molecules that lock together on impact. Because of this, the impact protector can be made thinner and lighter, making a jacket more comfortable and easier to wear. However, this decreased size does not come at the expense of impact protection.

Will fit any ICON Jacket that was originally equipped with ICON Dual Density Back Pad. The shape is slightly different, but the D3O Back Insert will fit into the Jacket's Back Pocket.


  • Mens: 15.75"H  x 10.375"W approx. 10oz
  • Womens: 14"H x 9.5"W approx 8.4oz

Great flexible yet sturdy product Feels very sturdy especially compared to the flimsy foam that I'm used to as a standard back protector. Fortunately I haven't had a crash since I've purchased it but just holding it gives me no doubt that it will protect me. It's also flexible enough that it forms to my back and the perforation and ridges provide good cooling. April 7, 2014
Fits seamlessly in a small jacket This perfectly fits my small Alpinestars Stella Vika leather jacket and is slim enough to look good on my back! March 25, 2014
Exactly what I was looking for Bought to test in casual riding gear where less bulk is desirable- a hoodie from John Doe (Germany) and shop jacket from Corazzo. Needed less rigid pads for this reason - will be buying a second set February 17, 2014
worth the upgrade and easy on the wallet You will forget you even bought the back armor after you put it in your jacket. It costs you next to nothing, protects you better, and is more comfortable. Just buy it, you will be happy you did! I put it in my icon women's hella jacket. Just for reference. February 17, 2014
I bought this to replace the thin foam pad in my winter riding jacket This very interesting material feels like very hard plastic when you hit it hard but feels like soft foam to slow bending or pressure. It is as comfortable as the thin foam but heavier. I have not tested in a get off yet, I suspect I would have loved it in a painful crash a few month ago when a high side landed me flat on my back. The cost is similar to other CE armor The catalog dimensions were right on. I will order more to replace other thin padding with full CE armor in my gear January 20, 2014
Excellent CE1 protector Bought a women's Built jacket but couldn't find a knox back protector. Eventually came across Icon and it fits perfect. Barely notice it (ex. bending over, leaning against something), flexible, and breathes great. Perfect for city riding and just starting out. August 28, 2013
Super Orange! I've purchased supplemental back protectors in every jacket I've owned and this is the best so far. It's interesting to see the evolution of materials in those purchases even though the cost has been no greater. The first purchase was an Alpinestars RC model that was so stiff and hot, it seemed like nothing more than a boogie-board stuffed into the jacket. The second was an Alpinestars Bio Armor protector that was greatly more flexible but still rather thick and heavy. This d3o is head and shoulders above either of those models. It's amazingly thin, super flexible and the molded-in channels provide some air flow. I fully believe the data that indicates that this material's viscoelasticity will allow it to harden and protect me in the event of an off. Understand that this is not the highest rating back protector (CE Level 2 absorbs greater force than Level 1) but it is far greater protection than the thin piece of foam that comes standard on most jackets. I was expecting to have to trim this but it fits perfectly in my Rev'it Outback jacket. August 19, 2013
Eon's better than foam Got the obligatory foam insert in my mesh jacket and my winter jacket. Definitely was looking to upgrade, but wasn't sure about some of the more articulated inserts or thicker CE rated armor. This product is super soft, super comfortable, super flexible, super vented and super cheap compared to other armor. Can't even tell it's there. May fit loose in jackets that have a bigger pocket, but probably not by much. So worth it to upgrade to this insert. Get one for each jacket you own. July 30, 2013

Marcel B: I needed to upgrade the back armor on two older Fiirstgear jackets; no one has armor in the correct size and this is one of the few styles that you can trim to fit without sacrificing protection. Plus, having this in other gear I can attest to the comfort of it compared to older style Knox armor. Mar 19, 2014

Shirlee G: I use mine in the Women's TPG Monarch jacket. It fit perfectly with a little trimming (just some edges), which doesn't compromise the protection or comfort it provides! I absolutely recommend this product if its dimensions are very close to the size you need for your jacket - just measure the back protector pocket to see how close it is! I wouldn't want to trim very far into the "meat" of the armor ...but maybe that's just me.
I hope you find this helpful.

GREGORY M: the dual density back protector that comes with the hooligans Street Jersey, is better suited for the icon Stryker back protector. It has that same shape I bought the D30 back protector for my Motorhead leather jacket from icon. The dual density back protector for that jacket was very similar: to the D30 and worked very well.

Daniel W: I don't have the same jacket - I have it in my Joe Rocket mesh jacket along with the foam pad. I can tell you that it is 10.5" wide and 16" long. It is only about 1/4" thick and very flexible. Hope that helps you some. Dan Sep 16, 2013

David P: It can be trimmed with regular scissors to fit in a smaller pocket, with the reduction in coverage/safety that the smaller pad area would create, but the integrity of the pad appears unchanged to this untrained eye Nov 5, 2013

James L: Measure the oem protector and compare it with the Icon measurements listed in the specifications. You should also know that you can trim the protector to fit fairly easily, I had to do that to get it to fit my Firstgear jacket. Nov 17, 2013

GREGORY M: I bought this D30 back protector for my ICON motorhead jacket; and it fit perfectly. So if the ICON Retro has the same style back pocket as the motorhead jacket it should work just fine. Nov 17, 2013
