Icon Overlord Prime Hero Leather Jacket
Great freaking jacket
I ordered this jacket almost 4 months ago and have worn almost everyday since i commute to work, and i have to say i really like this thing.
The build quality is great, and it flows quite a bit of air. When i rode in Feb i definitely had to base layer because of the amount of air that came in through the sleeve stretch panels. If you are planning on riding it in the cold, get a base layer thats windproof.
Due to the ventilation, it stays pretty cool in 90 degree weather and is super comfortable.
The jacket looks sharp and do get compliments on it. Whenever i read they other reviews i though they were exaggerating, but they werent. Will say the white on the jacket tends to get dirty, but thats to be expected since i ride everyday. I just thought id throw that in here as heads up.
Lastly,the sleeves with the locking zippers actually fit properly around my Alpinestars SPX gloves with the wrist protector, which my other jackets had an issue getting around.
Highly recommend this jacket, well worth the money. Just pull the trigger and buy it!

Best leather jacket I've ever had
This jacket is great. The fit is perfect (I'm a 40us chest and 31in waist, so I got the medium and it fits similar to a 40us Spidi leather suit). It's a little tighter than the medium Icon Overlord Type 1 textile jacket I have. This jacket is more comfortable than the Joe Rocket, Fieldsheer, and First Gear jackets I've had before. I do feel more wind up my sleeves and on my shoulders than I would like from a leather jacket. I haven't tried this in the summer, but I imagine it would be comfortable until the temps got above 85F.

This jacket turns heads
I am 5'6, 175 lbs muscular build and I bought a large. I have about a 43-44 inch chest and I find this jacket fits me very well. If you have a gut, this jacket isn't for you. The lining inside (which is removable) is perfect for the morning chilly rides to work or for those spring/fall type temperatures. This jacket has a serious nice sporty aggressive look to it and I love it. I got the Hi Viz yellow jacket to match my Icon Alliance Hi Viz yellow helmet and trust me, people turn their heads. Its a comfy jacket, well designed, and you get exactly what you pay for. A tad bit heavy at first but what leather jacket isn't? After your first ride you're not even going to notice it. Overall, I would recommend this jacket to anyone who wants that sporty, aggressive looking type jacket, trust me, you're not going to regret it!
The only con I have is that I wish this jacket had more airflow to the chest

I'm 5' 11", 156 lbs. and i got the White with high viz yellow, size Medium. Replaced the shoulder and elbow pads with forcefields. For chest and back protection, I wear Forcefield elites. It's a tight fit but comfortable.
Great looking, high quality jacket. one of the best looking out there imo.
i think Icon's other overlord jackets comes with full perfs on the front and they should do the same with this. And a full inner liner and not just a vest for cooler temps. As it is , you get a lot of air going thru your arms but not on your chest.
Overall, still a great jacket

Great protection and awesome looks
I have been eyeing this jacket for the better part of a year and today it came in the mail. First of all I wanted a jacket for colder weather and it had to have a couple things. Leather, style and no perforation in the chest. This jacket has all that, but for colder weather your going to get cold arms. They flow too well. This jacket was designed for warmer climates and not colder canadian seasons we experience here in Newfoundland. If the liner had sleeves this jacket may have been perfect. I was also worried about fitment being a bigger guy who carries a bit of a spare tire around the waist, I am 6'1" 245lbs with a 47" chest, I ordered a 2xl and I thought I might have problems but the jacket fits perfect. Tall lanky guys may actually find this jacket loose around the waist. I still have room for a sweater, but extras like a wallet and smartphone are about all you can carry. I rode tonight in 12 Celsius and with the sun down I wish I had worn my sweater instead of short sleeved tshirt because of the air flow in the arms but my chest was warm. The prime hero has no perf in the chest while the prime does. The skull logo is the reason they changed it to no perf on the chest. External protectors are awesome as well.

VERY cool looking jacket
This is far and beyond one of the nicest leather jackets I have ever seen. Impeccable quality, very heavy leather. Its not a light jacket, but I got the 2XL. As usual, pricey, but feels worth it once you put it on. A few things in life you should pay top dollar for, leather jacket is one.
