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 product for the price Purchased this for a replacement of the foam back protector in a icon Anthem mil-spec mesh jacket, it is about an inch shorter but it does fit well and will offer more protection than the foam back protector that came with the jacket. December 22, 2014
Perfect upgrade to flimsy foam back protector. I decided to upgrade all of the armor in my Scorpion Helix jacket. I ordered the elbow, shoulder, and back protectors. The are so comfortable and the jacket fits better and makes me feel safer. I trust D3o armor more than the standard protection in the jacket. Much better fit and great airflow. December 15, 2014
Disappointing coverage I bought the women's size as an upgrade to the foam back pad in my girlfriend's Icon Contra Speed Queen jacket. She wears a Medium. It definitely fits in the provided pocket, but it is about 3 inches too short top to bottom. Unfortunately, this leaves a large unprotected area approximately down to between her shoulder blades. We have decided to use both pads at once for now and to hope we never have to test it in a crash. I have attached a picture with the D3O back pad over top of the foam pad inside the jacket. The foam pad is placed where it would be if it was inside the pocket in the jacket. December 7, 2014
Fits well into the jacket we bought. Fits well into the Joe Rocket Phoenix 5.0 jacket we bought our 18-year-old rider. We truly have no idea how it well it protects, and we hope we never have to find out. It is certainly more substantial (denser) foam than the protector insert that came with the jacket. (By the way, he loves the jacket.) November 26, 2014
Fits Well I have this in my Firstgear Kilmanjaro jacket and it fits well. DOesn't feel too bulky, and the weight is actually kinda' comforting to me. October 16, 2014
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. September 12, 2014
Nice upgrade 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. September 8, 2014
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. September 2, 2014

A shopper asked: Will this protector fit inside the Icon Hooligan Street Jersey? Sep 11, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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

Will this back protector fit in an Icon Retro Daytona Leather Jacket?????

Looking for a better back protector than the oem!
Nov 17, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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
Reply to James Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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

David S asked: What is the size difference between the men's version and the women's version? Men's is out of stock - will the women's one be adequate? Apr 22, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
KENNETH B: I think the woman's version is a couple inches smaller. More of a problem is keeping the pad in the correct position when the smaller size allows it to shift a little out of place. You can make some alterations to the mesh pad holder to stabilize the smaller pad, with a little effort. I've used zip fasteners to reduce the size of the pad envelope. The D30 is awesome. Super light, breathes, bends like wet noodle. So comfy - just what I was looking for. Apr 25, 2014
