Riding a motorcycle can be a dangerous business. But keeping yourself safe on your ride isn’t as simple as just donning a good helmet – not unless you don’t care about the rest of your body. If you do, you’re going to want to get a solid jacket. And they don’t get much better than the Basehawk from ICON 1000.

Designed specifically so it doesn’t look like a big bulky bike jacket, the Basehawk is still a fully featured motorcycle garment. It features a 4-way stretch material; ballistic nylon & select-grain leather protective panels; and is loaded with D30 impact protectors on the shoulders, elbows, and back. And that’s all in a package that looks like a casual hoodie. Furthermore, it’s equipped with YKK zippers, an EDC pocket, and a headphone pass through – if you’re still wired up. It’s also polyurethane coated for light water-resistance and has a removable insulated liner for wearing on those warmer days. This incredibly comprehensive package can be yours for just $280.
