The new Overlord Resistance Jacket by ICON is the sort of over-engineered piece of protective gear that I’d wear if I knew for a fact that I was going to come off my bike and roll along the asphalt at 60mph as though it were a slip ‘n slide for people who hate everything about their skin.
Fitted with a full array of shoulder, elbow and back D3O armour coupled with ICON’s proprietary Unit-Fused construction and injected shoulder, elbow and back plates composited with ballistic nylons and Fighter Mesh mean that the Overlord Resistance Jacket is essentially a next-gen version of Batman’s famous black suit, minus the cape and tiara.
