Icon Stryker Rig
I purchaced the stryker rig about a month ago and have to say it's pretty great. It's extremely cool (temperature wise) and seems as if when wind flows through the sleeves they almost seems to get cold.. so it's great for hot weather. The ONLY negative thing i'll say about the Stryker Rig is that one of the seams has ripped after hardly any real use. It's not bad yet but i'll need to get it replaced. Another thing i'll say is it does fit a bit small (to me). I bought the larger version since there is only 2 to choose from and it's a LITTLE bit snug. Definatley nothing overly uncomfortable just wish it wouldn't stop so short of my waist really. I am 6 foot tall and about 230.

Good protection, dumb looks....
Here is the thing; you're going to look dumb because of the shoulders. The back protector looks awesome and the chest plate and forearm pads don't get in the way....but the shoulders?
I tried it under a Hoodie....and I looked ridiculous. I tried it under a vest...eh, looks ok. It looks fine under a MX jersey ( though not off road rated ).
It's nice & cool on it's own, but you'll still feel every bug that hits you. It's got to be under a jacket and I'm not sure how you can get away with this without looking like Frankenstein's monster.

Icon Stryker Rig a must have for any rider.
The Icon Stryker Rig is a pretty solid set up. Goes on quick ,easy to adjust, looks and feels great once its on. The zip up on the side makes it easy to put on. The velcro straps on the waist hold on nice and firm. This Stryker Rig looks great alone or fits good under a jacket or hoody. All and all this is a great way to go and well worth the price.

Style and function
Recently purchased the Icon Stryker rig and am very pleased.
I am 6'2' 220 pounds and it fits well overall but is a bit snug. (a bit short at the waist)
The armour does not slip out of place while riding which gives me confidence when it comes to protection. Airflow is fantastic!
Thumb holes at the bottom of the sleeve do not work well with gloves but I suppose they serve a higher purpose of preventing riding up on your arms. Did I mention it looks BADASS? Never been gawked at more when I am wearing this rig.

Great would buy again
I bought this item as i am stunt riding it is comfortable and breaths very easily i have not had any problems of getting to hot with this product it does fit a little large but that is just due to the sizing but the adjustable straps help a lot to make it a better fit i recommend this product if you need Armour that feels great and looks amazing.

air flow is great for those hot days
i bought this jacket because my textile jacket was not cutting it on airflow, so i found this jacket which gets a lot of airflow. i have to say it look as if its for paint balling with all the armor on it but then again it does make me feel safer riding in it then my textile jacket did, with its rubber and foam inserts. it is very adjustable with its shoulder straps and stomach strap to help keep the back protector in place. it also moves around very nicely. i wear a vans zip up jacket on top of the armor when i ride and i love how there is never any binding or catching of the fabric with the armor as to limit your movement while riding. i recommend this if you live somewhere hot and you don't want to ride unprotected.

Great product. Warm weather must have
The mesh cloth material that icon uses is stretchy and breaths very well. All the protection gear fits very well. I would've like for the cloth part of the rig to close around my neck more since my shirts are tighter around my neck and so they show but other than that, great product.

I really wanted to love it
I just received the Stryker Rig today. I tried it on and loved everything about it, except the fit. I am 6' 175 lbs. and ordered the Med/Lg (the smallest available). Normally I am in between a medium and large, but with this, it was way too big in the neck and shoulders. The shoulder pads drooped down way too much and the sleeves felt a touch too long. If I tightened the front shoulder strap adjustments, it just bunched up too much in the neck and pulled the shoulder pads too far forward. At first I thought: no big deal, I'll just return it for a smaller size. Then I noticed that this WAS the smallest size. I am disappointed that I have to return it, but it just doesn't fit.
