For years the Federal jacket sat in the Icon archives. She was a jacket both far ahead and completely behind her time. She was elegance when the market demanded flippant. She was refined when the customer wanted cute. She was extravagance when the customer wanted value. And so she would wait. Patiently. Waiting for the time when jackets of fortitude, of resolve, and of character, where once again summoned to lead the ranks of the chosen. Hand cut and machine sewn from the finest Brazilian cowhide, the Federal jacket is available with two unique finishes. The black jacket features a drum dyed antique leather with a refined matte finish. The red Federal features an aniline dyed natural grain leather treated with a hand applied waxed finish. Her pattern was developed over years of testing for maximum performance on bike, and maximum impact off. Internally, the Federal packs a full complement of D3O CE-approved impact protectors in the shoulders, elbows, and back. Custom produced oversized YKK zippers, with a tactical black oxide finish, provide the secure closure. The Federal jacket, the professional's choice.
Icon designed their own CE-certified elbow and shoulder armor because they wanted to improve the way the armor fits against the rider. Specially sized pockets hold the armor fit firmly against your body for maximum comfort and increased protection. All Icon jackets and overpants come with removable CE-approved elbow, knee and shoulder armor.
