Icon Brigand Vest
Great light weight protection
I looked at this vest for a few months before pulling
The trigger on buying it. Not sure why I waited so long! Awesome style as well as some protection in the event of a crash. Light weight but still not to hot
For summer use. Love it!!!

Bought a 4xl-5xl. This is one of the only vests I can fond in this size range that actually fits me .. All others are way small at 4-5xl. Nice vest .

great vest -very bad@ss looking as well
Bought this for the hubster and he loves it and I love the way it looks/fits. Very "sons of anarchy". Fits great. I obviously don't wear it but it feels very durable and I like knowing he's wearing a something so protective.

A fine adquisition for the price!
A little crispy, warm but I do not recommend it for hot summer or hot weather. On the othe side many pockets, hard zippers, durable. I like the frontal logo finish. Leather is superb but this one is light and more less costly!

Good, not great
One downside is that the webbing inside is not removable, so if you want to sew any patches on, you basically take away the option of using the back protector as it's opening will most likely end up sewed shut.

Simple, efficient vest.
I purchased this vest for summer riding on my '82 Yamaha XS650. I'm a younger rider(22) on an older bike, so I wanted something other than your standard "all leather, straps and chrome buckles and zippers" that you generally see in cruiser vest options. The vest is very comfortable, fits well with either a t-shirt or sweatshirt underneath. Very lightweight. Lots of features, most important being the D30 back armor plate. Flexibility of the plate allows for lots of movement for various riding styles, without sacrificing any protection of the spine/back. The plate is barely noticeable while riding, but also removable, if you don't value the use of your limbs after a serious crash. Lots of storage, and 3 of the 5 pockets have YKK zippers for security at higher speeds. The last 2 pockets have velcro fasteners, but I wouldn't trust anything in those pockets while riding(I am also very paranoid of losing whatever I have in my pockets while on the bike, though) Sliding plastic straps on the sides allow you to pull in the vest for different clothing options. The back of the vest is naked, and allows for any patches you'd like to put on to represent your MC. The one complaint I have with it is the airflow, it can get a little warm underneath it at red lights, but I'd take the small amount of sweat buildup for the added protection of the vest. Overall, I feel the vest is a great bargain for someone looking for something other than the old school leather look, and will fit for any style bike in both safety and style.

A vest is a vest.
I bought this vest looking for a cut to wear with my MC. This vest has some cool features with the outside pockets, and has an ample amount of protection along the back and spine region, but for the price, it's a little spendy. It is pretty comfortable and fits a bit slim.

Great vest, perfect style, comfort and design. Only one hiccup......
I ordered a large vest, as I wear a large jacket. Fit was perfect. I'd ordered the PDX Rain jacket from ICON previously and the sizing was the same deal. Large for large, etc so I felt comfortable with the sizing. Fit was exactly as I'd expected.
The style is what really drew me to this vest. I'd looked at literally HUNDREDS of different style. I ride a Streetfighter style motorcycle, and am part of a club, so I really wanted something that reflected my style. This vest fits the bill. large area on the back for the club patch.
My only dislike is the ICON logo on the front. While it's very stylish and cool, it gets in the way of some of the patches, etc. Other than that, I can't think of anything bad to say about this vest. I'd buy it again, despite my small complaint.
As usual, Revzilla provides excellent customer service, fast shipping, and great products at great prices. The reason WHY I continue to give them my business.
