Icon Shangri-la Hoody
Good ICON Product
As my wardrobe is utterly filled with Revzilla products, I am on a mission today to be helpful and provide an up-to-date review of as many products as possible. As such, this review will be current (as of late January 2014), quick and to the point.
First off, I am a street/custom rider, so the brand's approach is dead-on for me. Might not be for racers and what have you, but to each their own.
The "Shangri-la Hoody" is a good, but maybe not EXCELLENT product. The fit is somewhat loose, not aggressive (not necessarily a bad thing, more a preference thing). The material does seem a bit light, so don't consider this a protective piece. Could run into durability issues down the road. It is very fashionable. I would consider it an around-town item. A solid purchase. 4 out of 5 stars for these reasons.
Some people feel ICON is a "bargain-brand" of some sort, but I disagree entirely. My closet is filled with their stuff, and I wouldn't spend my hard-earned money on garbage - repeatedly. Their quality has vastly improved.

This one good looking hoody, i really like ICON design. It is true that color on picture is a bit different than in real life. I wear Europen XL and this is L and it fits perfectly (confirmed by wife :-) )

I like this jacket, but i feel its a bit overpriced for the quality.
after a few washes the big patch on the sleeve looks a little wavy and it hasn't shrunk noticeably. still a bit on the big side. i mostly use it for layering under my textile jacket for colder rides and for that it works perfect.

Picture looks better than in real life
Hoody by itself is ok. It is not very thick material, so great for summer evening, when in T-shirt is a bit to cool.
However, the design was disappointing. It looks way better on photo that in real life. Those logo looks a bit cheap. You know those fake "Dolce & Gabana" T-shirts with huge logos, well it looks like that.
I wear size European L, this hoody is a bit bigger than standard European L.

Actual color does not match online photos
The actual color is a fabric weave of black and white which looks light gray, not the charcoal shown in all online photos. Disappointed in color.

A great hoody!
If you're looking for a hoody with moto styling this is it. Very comfortable and lightweight. Appears to be well made with high quality zip and details.
It's a sweater so the protection and air flow ratings don't really apply. I'm 5'10 165 lbs and I got a medium. Perfect fit.
