Sorry to hear about your friend...

I've never been a fan of Icon products, especially the older stuff.
IMO they weren'y very well made and had plain padding for "armor".

Some of the more recent stuff has gotten better, but in my experience, the Fieldsheer, Cortech, Teknic, Alpinestar textiles and some of the Joe Rocket stuff all perform much better than Icon.

Leather is definitely the most protective, but even so, a well made textile will outperform an inexpensive, not very well made leather.
