We had the Bushwick Murderhaus’s self-professed crash expert, Al Christod, put the latest Overlord Prime jacket from Icon through the ringer. How did it hold up? Click below for the NSFW feature.

Field Test: Icon Overlord Prime jacket

Editor’s note: This and other similar Icon jackets have survived crashes while protecting their wearers at over 100mph.

    Nice jacket, but I think I just found the one thing my bike was missing: a breastplate.

      Maybe your Italian fan club can contribute one?

    hey that was cool! i think they do have a stealth colour way for this jacket tho, could have worked better for him… i was checking it out when i was dreaming about the possibility of winning it in the scar off, hehe…

    you know, it could wrap everything up nicely if the winner of the scaroff would send you some pics of him riding in his new gear, then we’ll all enjoy that with him

      Yep, they make an all-black version.

      And, yes, Justin will be modeling his new gear for us at some point soon.

    Ahahaha f*ckin brilliant, I remember that dude from my time in BK; it’s cool to see you guys working with DKMC, cheers to them for just doing what they do and making a couple bucks in the process.

    Seems like the only issue the dude has with it is the tackiness and the doubts about high-speed abrasion resistance. Would it be that hard to black out the silver bits? Where I live, if I go down at speed I’m so hosed that no jacket will help. FWIW I’m looking for a replacement for my perforated Vanson jacket, it smells like a homeless person’s foot. (in the summertime) This jacket is a contender and likely winner.

      There’s an all-black version with already blacked-out logos.

    Through the “ringer”?? I guess “wringers” are not much used anymore, but still…

    Say, Fatmex, have you looked into Vanson’s restoration service? You could get that perf Vanson throughly cleaned and rejuvenated for less than the price of one of these throwaway Chinese junk jackets. And, still have real protection.

    When I saw the sponsored ad yesterday, it got me a little worried. I’m glad it got a field test with pro’s AND con’s.

    Icon makes some nice gear, but I could never see myself in any of it. Simply because every squid in these parts is covered in it. You go to a bike night and everyone is wearing the same jacket and riding the same bike. Not my thing.

    Thanks for clarifying it comes in all black. I also noticed he said it does not come with a waist zipper for riding pants. However, the video on the icon youtube page clearly shows it has an attached zipper for riding pants. http://www.youtube.com/iconmotosports#p/u/9/J2Do9la0KvA

    Please update the information in the review so it is accurate.

      Fixed, Mr/s. Portland. Just click refresh.

  • GuessWho

    I was going to give me opinion but if I got nothing nice to say I’ll just STFU. Ha.

    You know what they say about people who get their pictures taken in Murderhaus, right??

    I’ve heard you get molested by Al, but since he’s the one IN THE PICTURE, I’m expecting something REALLY RAPEY to happen…

    • http://hellforleathermagazine.com Wes Siler

      My rule book specifically states “No Raping!”

      Has there been an amendment or alteration of which I have not been informed?

    Haha – is that the first (of many) NSFW features?

    Occupation… Mechanic, Pervert. Do those two usually go together? :O

    • Glenngineer

      Yes. I used to be a mechanic, but I’m still a pervert.

  • CafeRacer8509001200

    It’s good that he’s a mechanic…wearing anything Icon makes you look like a complete tool.
