Icon D3O Shoulder Pads
A great upgrade
I bought these as replacements for the standard armor that came with my Icon Device jacket. They are slightly smaller all around than the Field armor that is shipped with the jacket, but fits securely enough that I don't believe the D30 armor will shift around in a real crash. The D30 armor is less bulky and more flexible, hence more comfortable. And the performance vs price makes the D30 armor a smart choice.

Excellent replacement armor at an amazing price
I bought a full set of Icon D3O armor to replace the old armor in my race suit. The armor itself is actually generic D3O T5 Evo armor (CE Level 1, but very near Level 2). It is incredible value for what it costs. To get to true CE Level 2 you have to pay at least twice as much.
The armor is lightweight, flexible and comfortable. It conforms to the shape of your body and doesn't dig into your flesh. I basically couldn't feel it when I don my race suit. I haven't tested it in action but I think it will hold up well for anything but the nastiest crashes.
The D3O material feels a bit slick, like new tires. If you want to bond it to something, roughen it up with medium sandpaper or a fine file, and clean with isopropyl alcohol first. Mine bonded to velcro with nylon backing easily using cyanoacrylate glue (i.e. super glue).

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 ;-)
