Ride to Live in the Merc Battlescar Jacket!

Looking for a motorcycle jacket that’s ready for anything? Then you’re probably looking for the new Merc Battlescar Jacket from Icon. Certainly, this jacket looks absolutely stunning! With great tailoring and a muted camo graphic- it’s a visual triumph. But the tech in this jacket is what sets it apart from the rest.

So let’s to it! Let’s go over everything that makes these jackets so special.

Icon Motorcycle Jackets address the unique needs of street riders. Because unforgiving asphalt, gravel-strewn corners and inattentive cagers are all things riders experience on daily rides. In essence, Icon is a company comprised of riders. So they understand what goes on in the rider’s minds. Moreover, they’ve felt the pain when the inevitable occurs. And it’s this firsthand knowledge that leads to their inspired product design and industry leading imagery,

Merc Battlescar Jacket Features

First, the Icon Merc Battlescar jacket is a softshell chassis with nylon paneling. Secondly, it sports the famed D3O armor underneath- in the back, elbow and shoulder. To that end, it’s first-rate motorcycle protection. Furthermore, the stretch woven polyester softshell chassis provides excellent movement and flexibility on the bike.

Lastly, the fit is more relaxed by design. So you can expect ideal comfort on and off the bike. Additionally, comfort features like the hood, oversized kangaroo pockets for your motorcycle eyewear, etc., pit zips and sport cuffs make this jacket irresistible. All in all, the Merc Battlescar Jacket is proof you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for defense.
