The centerpiece here is the new Icon Watchtower jacket which has been created to offer you comfort and decent elements protection during changeable weather this time of the year. It is constructed of an abrasion-resistant ballistic nylon chassis with adjustable waist and shock cord collar to keep you warm on those crisp mornings.

If the sun comes out and the temperature rises, all you have to do is open those giant dual chest vents to let the air flow. Or remove the sleeves entirely and convert the jacket into a vest, although we wouldn’t recommend that.

The Watchtower jacket comes complete with an ample back pocket to store adventure gear or the removed sleeves, a removable insulated SatinCore vest liner, and a full kit of D3O armor (shoulder, elbow, back). Sizes range from S to 4XL and price is set at $230. And, yes, it can be paired with matching riding pants.

This cool jacket can only be matched by a cool new helmet, and Icon thought that a shiny one would be exceptional for murky autumn days to aid with visibility. We’re talking about the Airframe Pro Quicksilver helmet which is delivered complete with a Dark Smoke Tracshield.

The unique paint on the helmet is hand-applied in multiple coats and then painstakingly burnished, antiqued, and polished to create a unique look. In fact, each helmet’s finish is said to differ from one to another, and all this awesomeness can be had for $400 in sizes XS-3XL.

If you’re a girl and looking for more funky graphics, Icon also released the Airmada Georacer helmet which is garnished in a hyper-colored, thrice-triangulated, tetra-pyramid color theme, appearing to be the creation of someone’s brain on DMT. It comes in XS through 2XL and costs 270 bucks.

Gloves are on the list too, and there is a nice pair of Icon Patrol 2 boots. They are waterproof, CE-certified and look like a cross between neo and retro. The TECTUFF leather upper seamlessly integrates with the lightweight BOA lacing system for easy on, off, and small adjustments.

They also come with D3O ankle inserts, engineered lasting board, and rubber shifter interface to protect against scuffs and marks. Sizes vary between 7 and 14 and one pair can be had for $140.

All these and much more can be checked out on Icon’s official website. You can also take a look at these two inspiring clips below.
