From the leader in armored motorcycle vests comes the Brigand. Consider it a tactical riding rig, capable of doing leather work on a textile salary. The Brigand, like all Icon vests, ships with a removable back protector. In this case it is a D3O® Viper component - CE approved back protector. This protector lies discretely hidden under the Brigand’s durable textile chassis until such time as it is called into service. And while no back protector can provide protection from every situation, the D3O® Viper will definitely stack the odds in your favor. Additional features of the Brigand include both metal and nylon YKK® zippers, torso adjustment straps, and padded AX Suede shoulder overlays for increased durability.
