The Icon 1000 Associate Vest looks great in its natural “stripped” state and a zipped panel allows ease of attaching patches.  When not riding, the back protector is removable revealing a comfortable satin lining.  The elasticated panels are strategically fashioned into the vest along the sides beneath the arms to allow a bit of flex for movement.  The YKK zippers are strong, yet low profile.  This vest comes with a small front left-side pocket.  The sport fit of this vest exudes a trim look and the durability of this vest is sure to last you for a lifetime of riding.
