icon used to make good gear. I have stuff from when they came out and comparing to current production of the same models you can tell they are using a cheaper quality leather. Their prices sure haven't gone down though.

price is true but its still safe and effective riding gear and its useful for the daily street rider cause it doesnt break the bank like some other very over priced gear, i know you cant put a price on protection but still.
