Icon Stryker Rig
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.

A must have if you want armored protection and stay cool too
I just purchased the Icon Stryker Rig, and could not be happier, I wanted all the protection of a jacket with out sweating to death in the summer heat. This rig is not only comfortable but easily adjustable and provides better protection then my jacket, and can easily rock my vest without sacrificing my arm and elbow and shoulder protection. This product lives up to everything they say it will on this site, and the turn around shipping was FAST FAST FAST and free <3 the crew at Revzilla, spot on reviews and accurate descriptions amazing customer service.

The Icon Stryker® is the best rig available. Period.
I wear this under my Icon leather jacket, you will find that you will need to remove your impact armor in the shoulder and arm from your leathers, for a more comfortable fit, if your going to wear your Icon Stryker® rig underneath.
I wear this when offloading as well, it can get a little hot, but it has great air flow, as long as your moving. It will wick away moisture with it's sweat mitigating fabric, and provides superior back, chest, arm and shoulder protection. The thumb loops hold the armor in place when your getting into your leathers or textile jackets.
Also something to note, I wear a LG Icon Carbon lifefrorm helmet, which is a fairly huge helmet in comparison to the low profile helmets such as your array of Shoei, Arai, AVG ect. Icon helmets are huge, you will look like an alien, however they are of the best designed, most comfortable, lightweight. It's a premium brand, and of the highest quality.
However that being said, when your wear armor under your jacket, these larger helmets make it very difficult to turn your head, it seems as though the chin area of the helmet catches on your collar bone area when trying to peek over your shoulders.
For street use, it can be difficult to see. So keep this in mind, when buying armor, if you use a larger sized helmet brand.

Can't go wrong with this. Protection in most important areas. Can wear a variety of jackets and still feel confident.

Customization to your body using latches, looks great.
This is my first protective product. I always ride around in blistering 90-100 deg heat, so an armored leather is not advisable. The "Hydradry" textile really works like a mobile air conditioner when you start moving.
The shoulder, and elbow armor fits just right, when you adjust using the velcro straps to tighten the spot, while still allowing comfortable movement of your upper body during riding.
Haven't had the unfortunate event of testing it's protection, but I am confident it will keep me safe.
Lastly, it looks fantastic. You'll get two types of compliments, 1) on how futuristic and awesome the jacket looks 2) how much splendid looking upper body muscle you have. The latter is caused by the perfectly placed armour, and specially the waist straps, which tighten my pudge, and make me look like I have washboard abs.
Note: I ride a Yamaha R15, similar to the YZF125, not listed on Revzilla.

Great flow and awesome delivery time
If you have done any research on this you will notice there is no sale price anywhere. Revzilla's shipping and delivery time was incredible... I think it was at my door in 3 days!
So far, I have only ridden with this a couple of times to/from work... which means I have a big backpack full of work clothes which blocks some of the airflow, but the comfort and air flow felt great even when restricted.

good features, good protection
After i put it on i immediately could feel the great amount of protection this has, its light weight has excellent airflow and offers a great amount of maneuverability. its very comfortable and even when i'm not moving It does not overheat at all, the mesh and the stretchy material feel very durable and well made, plus there is a ridiculous amount of adjustments :D
My only problem with this is that the stitching on the thumb loops is thick so it irritates my hands in between my thumb and index when riding, so I just folded them inside the sleeves and PROBLEM SOLVED!!!
