ICON's Patrol Waterproof Gear

I love ICON's Patrol jackets, pants and gloves. It's one of the best bits ICON has produced in years, in my view. They're working man's gear. The styling is there, the features are there and this time ICON got it right on sizing too.

You don't have to look like this when you put your waterproof stuff on. No one should look like this, ever, in fact. No one sits there smiling like their on the beach when their all wrapped up in rain gear and it's raining.

I think if ICON wanted to, they could have made something stupid. Most waterproof gear is. Look around at guys touring around on a cold weekend or in a bad commute and the type of riding gear that typically passes for good wet weather stuff looks like uniforms out of a Canadian circus or an Algerian road crew. It's ok to have some style in the wet and ICON delivers with their Patrol line up.

Jackets, Pants, Gloves, Boots.
