Project Description

Let’s start with the facts: ICON 1000’s Akorp Jacket is fitted with an adjustable waist and constructed with a Highland coated canvas chassis. You stay safe with the CE level 2 certified D30 removable back protector, and CE certified shoulder and elbow impact protectors. The armor has a little room to travel so they tend to slide around. This is an easy fix with a stitch to prevent the elbows pads from moving outside of the desired location. Initially they’re a little stiff in cold weather, but mold to you with the warmth of your body. Oh! A word of advice: always hang your Akorp on the wide shouldered hanger they provide, if not one similar in width. I learned the hard way that stiff, cold D30 can only bend around a thin hanger under its weight for so long… then snaps in half. Ever stylish, ICON 1000 uses 1.33mm Brazilian cowhide overlays that give the garment a more patchwork apocalyptic feel – which I believe was the intention. And I’m a sucker for “apocalyptic” anything!
