Product Review: Icon Overlord Type 1 Jacket

A warm-weather jacket that makes a statement

2/12/2013, By Rachael Maltbie; Photos by Sal Maltbie
A women’s riding jacket saturated in a “My Little Pony” color scheme may appeal to some women riders, but that bright pink or baby blue is just as likely to elicit eye rolls from others. That duality is what provoked Icon to tactfully revamp its jackets, replacing what many think of as “girly” colors with what the company refers to as “power” colors.

PRODUCT REVIEW: Icon Stryker Vest

Fashion meets ultimate protection
