I don't have one, but have only heard good things and have thought about picking one up myself

To go under my jacket of course

No. For the same price you can get something track oriented. A* or dianese

Quandry: What else does Icon make that is meant for the track?

no, I'm not a fan of those...


I rock the Icon Field Armour vest... and was recommending the Icon field armour elbow pads (they are seperate and more comfortable)


but I don't ride the track... I ride the street and lots

I ACTUALLY HAVE THE VEST ON IN MY AVITAR

I agree


The A* Bionic back and chest protector are BEST for under your leathers.
