Icon Hooligan 2 Mil Spec Mesh Jacket Closeout
I've had this jacket (Mil Spec Yellow) for a few weeks now and love it. The fit is a little big compared to my other jacket. The yellow/reflectors grab others attention very well. I can't really speak for durability yet since I haven't owned it very long. It flows a ton of air, except for the foam back pad. It doesn't have any holes so it gets a little toasty under it after a while. Overall though it's a great jacket and will be nice in the +90ºF temps of the summer.

Very nice jacket
I found this jacket to be very comfortable. The protection seems exceptional in comparison to other mesh jackets. The back pad could use some ventilation.

Seems like a very well made jacket only reason I rated it 4 for durability is I have only had it for a week now we'll see how it holds up. Flows allot of air enough to be comfortable in 90° weather. Fits nice n loose which I like not constricting at all. The full liner is pretty thick which should stretch it to cooler weather. And of course the closeout price is a steal.

This jacket has it all
I am super impressed with the Icon Hooligan. I'm especially pleased with the ventilation. I looks like a hot heavy jacket, but once you start to move,k the cooling is amazing .It enables me to wear protection even in hot weather.

GREAT Bang for the Buck
This jacket was a great buy. The airflow is superior, and you feel like you are just wearing a t-shirt when in motion. I wish the liner was waterproof, and the back armor is not CE, but otherwise, it's a great jacket for summer riding. And you cannot beat the high visibility.

This procduct was dissapointing
The concept behind this jacket is very good – a full-mesh shell for hot weather riding. The jacket however is a strange cut and has very little stiffening to give it shape across the shoulders. This means that it hangs off the rider, and that essential areas are not where they should be. The jacket was sized larger than other jackets of the same rating. It is longer in the arms than necessary, and wider across the back – a simian cut. The armour is also very poor - I needed to replace that immediately, which is not ideal for a reasonably expensive jacket. I have done one 500km off-road day-ride so far in the jacket and it was quite comfortable to wear. That said, I think there are probably better options for cut, quality and utility.

Really good jacket, but I don't know why it costs that much more than just a regular hooligan 2 jacket. Is the reflective material that much more expensive? I would still buy it if I had to though, because I really like this jacket for traversing the urban terrain in my daily commute.

The Jacket doesn't stand up to wear
I bought one about 8 months ago. Since that stitching has become unraveled, sleeve studs have come off so many times I have now sewn Velcro strips on the sleeve. The colour has faded quite a bit and now the start of the zip has torn so that I cannot keep the zip closed. The reflective strip around the elbows is loosing its reflective properties. The Jacket also has no waterproof pocket for a mobile phone. I live in Australia and use it every day. Now I have to buy another jacket - not Icon.
