Icon Raiden DKR jacket and trousers

Web Producer Liam Marsden has been using the Icon Raiden DKR jacket and trousers for 6 months now, here’s how he’s found them…

Time tested Six months/800 miles

What’s good?

Who said textile suits have to only come in black? US firm Icon are all too happy to produce bright clothing, and they haven’t left out their Raiden DKR range. The jacket is constructed from honeycomb ripstop material with a laminated Hycor membrane, while the trousers are made from Hycor. They’ve both done an outstanding job of keeping the worst of the British rain out. The D3O armour is well positioned and soft so it doesn’t dig in. The bright colours of the jacket mean I stand out in low light, and the jacket material is quite reflective as well. There’s a goggle wipe included in one of the jacket pockets which comes in handy for my specs. The collar on the jacket features a softer material which stops chaffing.

What’s not so good?

In the depths of winter I had to wear so many layers I could barely move, even with the liner fitted. Instead of a full-length zip to connect the jacket and trouser there are just two poppers on the front of the trousers. That’s it. The clip on the left chest, which I think is for to hold the tube from a hydration pack, catches on the Velcro sleeve adjuster every time I lower my hand from fastening my helmet. Every time. Plus, the material surrounding the full length zips is incredibly stiff.
