ICON® jackets are tough and designed to withstand a great deal of asphalt induced abuse, but no jacket can survive every conceivable motorcycle accident. Should the unfortunate occur and you crash in your Icon jacket thoroughly review the product for any signs of structural damage (major abrasion, holes, damaged seams, etc). Should there be any damage or if you are unsure if the damage is structural you should replace the jacket. Most Icon textile jackets use a coating on the shell material which reinforces the overall fabric matrix. Improper cleaning of the jacket could compromise the integrity of this coating leading to material failure. Unnecessary exposure to Sunlight and UV rays should be avoided. This is most critical when storing your jacket. Always store your jacket in a dark, well ventilated area. Jackets are best hung on a wide padded hanger. Do not wrap in plastic or other nonporous materials as this may cause the fabric to discolor. Finally, avoid exposing your jacket (or any of your riding gear) to fumes or vapors from gasoline or any harsh chemicals. These fumes weaken the structure of nylon and polyester textiles lessening their inherent protective capabilities.
