Icon Stryker Vest
This vest is a good quality product. I purchased a sm-md and I am 5'8" about 140 lbs and it fit perfect. It has good back padding. It is a little short in the front, but not a big deal, I just wish it covered more abdomen area.
It is low profile and works great under a hoody or current motorcycle jacket.
My only concern is the Velcro that holds the sides of the vest together may not stay together in a crash.
Overall great product, I purchased stealth black and it looks great!

Well worth it.
First thing I noticed was the smell. Not sure why it smelled the way it did, but it was horrible. I'm sure something to do with it's production. I can't compare it to anything I've smelled before. But after a few days it aired out and it's mostly gone. It fits well, my only complaint on the fit is that the front seems like it should sit lower to pull the back half up and tighter around the shoulders. Quality seems good, there's one part on the sides where they strap shut that sounds like it's stuffed with some kind of paper... Otherwise everything seems to be built/assembled very well. I've gotten several compliments on it.

Saved Me In A 55 MPH CRASH!
I love the style of this vest and elbow pads. Easy and quick to put on and take off. My back and chest do get a little sweaty though since not a lot of air flow passed through there. Very comfortable to commute in nonetheless. But the thing I love the most about them is that THEY WORK! I had an accident while heading back home coming down from a ride at one of my local mountains. I hit a rock in the middle of the road while going downhill. The impact threw me off my R6 going 55 mph. I slammed hard on my back and slid to the side of the road. The vest and elbow pads protected me and saved me from any serious injury and possibly death. I didn't even get a scratch on the top of my body. I was only wearing a normal zip up sweater over the elbow pads and the vest over the sweater. I got my accident on GoPro. I will buy another Vest.

Very comfortable; Very secure; Looks awesome;
I am 178lb, 5'10'' and I love this vest! Everything about it is awesome. I never have to adjust it because it is very comfortable. The strap feature feels very secure so I do not see it coming undone in case of the worse. The style of it is awesome and I get comments on it all the time. It just looks great and feels great. The money was definitely worth it.

Great lightweight protection
I have a tendency to ride without jacket protection in the summer because of the heat. I know it's bad but I do it anyway. I bought this because I figured if it wasn't too hot with it on, then maybe I'd have some protection at least.
I think it works great. I stay pretty cool and the only place I notice a little extra head is my spine, but it's not bad at all. The vest appears very sturdy and though I haven't gone down with it, I think it would protect well. It also looks great and I get a lot of compliments.
I bought a size larger because I didn't want it to be tiny on me, and it ended up a little big. I'd say that it probably runs true to size or maybe a little bigger. But even the size I have still fits nicely with only a Tshirt when I bring it to the smallest setting. I can also make it a bit bigger if I want to wear it over my motorcycle jacket or another jacket.
One of the only negatives I found was that wearing a full backpack with it on can feel very bulky. I have done it without problems, but carrying a backpack with a 17" laptop make you feel like a dinosaur walking around. And the backpack straps don't fit nicely over the vest straps. But I don't think this is a reason not to buy - I still wear the vest and bring my backpack on my daily work commute.

Great bang for your buck
I'm 5"10 175 pounds and I purchased the S/M size and I want to say overall it fits good it goes all the way down my spine however I wish it would go a little more past the belly area. The vest is adjustable from the waist and shoulder area. As far as quality goes it does have a nice sturdy feel to it. It looks cool and does not effect mobility very much.

I bought this specifically for the chest protection. It fits great under a motorcycle jacket as well as any other loose fitting jacket. I also purchased the forearm and elbow guards. It's nice to wear when it's too hot to have a mesh jacket on. It fits great and very easily adjustable.

A good buy.
Vest fits real nice. doesn't bind or rub at all. It is much less bulky than it seems like it would be. Flows a ton of air on 90 day in NC. Easy to get in and out of and easy to adjust. It doesn't get any faster than RevZillas shipping.
