Icon D3O Shoulder Pads
Great Lightweight Armor
Got this armor for a BMG Montana jacket. Fit is great, very comfortable and can hardly tell it's there when off the bike. Not track-style protection by any means but does seem like it will provide some safety

Feels of good quality material.
Luckily, I haven't had the chance to actually test it out, but from the composition that it is made of, it seems like it will do good on light impact. Watching the D3O videos and how they take a hammer to it is true. The armor does do a good job on sudden impact, but conforms to you well when there is no pressure. I placed these in my SHIFT Avenger jacket and so far, so good. They are extremely light and you don't even feel the armor. Being an ICON product, I do have faith in them if something ever goes down!

Better than others
Fits my old mesh icon jacket perfectly, even with the liner. Comfortable, durable.
Used in temps from 25f to 105f no complaints.

Just like the elbow pads, these are lighter than original CE rated pads found in ICON OVERLORD leather jackets. Fit is good, they feel good and stay in place. Fast shipping from Revzilla as usual!

D3O is the best
I tried CE armor in my jacket but those pads are too thick and stiff. I can hardly tell the D3O is there. I tried some test "hits" and it really does stiffen up immediately and protect what's behind it. Can't wait to fall down ;-)

These are a cool idea. But have no idea if they really are better than standard armor. These are smaller and don't fit well in many of the jacket pockets, kind of slippery. But are much less obtrusive because they are so flexible.

Exactly what I was looking for
Purchased product for casual riding gear where less bulk is desirable- hoodie from John Doe (Germany) and shop jacket from Corazzzo. I will be purchasing second set of shoulder, elbow & back pads
