Icon Overlord Leather Jacket
Great fit for a person with long arms
I've been struggling to find a jacket with the right length of arm span but this jacket does the job for me. My current textile jacket is big for me and I look like a big, fat man (I have a slender/athletic build). But the sleeves are still short enough that my wrists get thick tan lines.
In terms of protection, the leather is really thick yet it still provides excellent airflow. Airflow feels like I'm just wearing a t-shirt and protection feels like I have a medieval knight's armor on.
The only thing that I didn't expect was the color. I was expecting more of a fluorescent neon color as shown on the image but I got a Kawasaki Green (Which totally works for me anyway because I ride a kawasaki ninja).
Overall this jacket is really great and I would recommend it to anybody.

Well Fitting Nice Looking Jacket
I am 5' 7" and around 200lbs., so I have a bit of a paunch. The large fits me well. Snug, but not too tight. The sleeves are a tiny bit long, but not overly so. They don't zip up all of the way closed with my gloves on, but the locking zippers do a fine job of staying zipped so it doesn't matter.
The fit is really good while riding. There are no annoying hotspots. I don't feel constricted in anyway.
The look and feel of the jacket is excellent. I'm not a leather expert, but the material feels and smells fantastic to me. It seems tough and durable, but not too thick.
The discounted price of this jacket makes it a really really good deal.

Very good quality jacket
Vey impressed with this jacket's quality, it has litle holes so it is well ventilated . Also has shoulder and elbow pads and one for the back. Very happy with this purchase, I would recommend it to everyone.

Breathe but stay warm!
This jacket is great! I gave it a 5 because I picked it up on clearance so I got a $100 or so dollars off. There is a lot of perforation on the front of the jacket so when you pick up speed and are really feeling the wind on those hot days, you stay nice a cool. I have the white/black jacket and everyone thinks I look like Tom Cruise from Oblivion (even though his jacket was grey). Anyways, it fits great it looks great and it keeps you warm during the transition seasons in the fall and spring with the thermal vest lining inside the jacket!

Too bad Icon discontinued this product
I must say Icon you out did yourself. I like to say this is a awesome jacket but its a summertime jacket. I call it the air conditioner. On a chilly night I still have to wear a sweater underneath it. There is a lot of mesh spots on the jacket. it does come with a windbreaker liner but it only covers the chest area. Even with the liner if feel a bit cool especially on a cool night. I got the stealth black which look great. I get compliments on it all the time. It run a snug on the lower part of the jacket. Icon measurement chart is true to size. Im about 5'9" around 220 pounds consider myself as average built. I usually wear X-large on my shirts, sweaters, and jackets. I disregard the sizing chart, bought a X-large it fit me but the chest area was too tight that limit my flexibility. so i returned it and got the 2Xl (which the site told to do in the first place.). and fits great. Despite being a snug jacket i am still able to fit a 5.11 job shirt sweater and still have flexibility and free range of motion. I highly recommend this product. On another note. This feels fairly heavy taking out of the box, but the weight almost disappears once you put it on.

Awesome value, great fit!
bought this jacket because it was on sale due to the fact of the new icon jackets coming out, i've always liked icon but been a fan of alpinstars as well, well, i decide to make the change and boy am i happy. I'm 5'7 and 155 lbs and ordered a medium a little hard to get on the first couple of times but its wearing in great. also a perfect fit. I ordered white and it does get dirty a little easier but hey what to expect.
