Icon D3O Shoulder Pads
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

Works in my Transition 2 Jacket
I picked these up as an upgrade for my Tourmaster Transition 2 Jacket. They fit in the shoulder armor pockets perfectly and are very comfortable.
Are they as protective as the original plastic on padding armor?
I expect so, but since I never had a get-off with the original armor, I'll never know...

Does the job well
These pads fit nicely and don't make you look lumpy. Fortunately I have not had to test their functionality in a crash (knock on wood). Good product, great price.

Great product! I would recommend this to anyone. My armor was dried up and in many different small pieces. This product fits great and also feels great. No complaints at all

Perfect Fit and Feel for my old Icon Tarmac
Used these to replace my old Tarmac originals, that are now just crumbs, and these are perfect. Not as bulky as originals and that is a good thing. Not too small either I think they fit perfect in this jacket. A+++

Fits Olympia Jackets well
I replaced the much bulkier armor in my Olympia AST jacket with these pads. They're much slimmer and more comfortable, and almost exactly the same size and shape. Money well spent. The jacket also looks less bulky, and more natural across the shoulders.
I can't comment on the protection or durability, and hopefully won't ever be able to comment on the protection.

Not too bad...
I bought these pads to replace the ones in my Icon Merc Hero leather. Fit is ok. Doesn't really fill up the shoulder pockets and hangs a bit low, so I'm a little concerned about how they'll really protect my shoulders in the event of a crash. The Merc Hero is an older jacket and these are the only pads Icon is currently offering so I'll say we'll just have to wait and see. The original pads have a wider surface area higher up on the shoulder that is more reassuring. Bottom line, I'd rather have these pads in my jacket then none at all.
