Icon Women's Contra Jacket
For the curvy taller women...Sweet deal
5'11" 16-18 are my stats.
3x was snug but still comfortable. The style looks good and is flattering. Arm length is awesome, I would just ask for it to be a little longer...but other than that its a great first bike jacket. Its not overly girly, just enough color to be seen and styling.

Great versatile jacket
I bought this jacket when the Florida heat was still in full swing, and now that it's late October I can safely say that this jacket will work for me. With the liner taken out I really feel the wind and it hardly feels like I'm wearing a jacket (as long as I'm moving). With the liner in I've been handling the 50 degree mornings just fine. I think with a base layer and this jacket, I'll be ready for the colder days. I'm 5 foot 7 and 145 lbs, the medium fits me perfectly. The sleeves are long enough which was a huge concern of mine, and I love that the jacket is longer in the back. I'm pretty happy with the jacket overall!

Great Jacket but Size Up
When I went to purchase this jacket, I looked at the Size Chart and other reviews, and as usual I was left to try and figure it out on my own. I wear a Size Large in shirts and am a 36C in the bust and 5'8" tall. However, I have extremely broad shoulders and muscular arms and a tapered waist. I purchased the 2XL in this jacket and absolutely loved the fit. I could have sized down to the XL but I wanted the extra room to wear a fleece or hoodie on cooler riding days. The jacket has features galore and all of the stitching looks great. The sleeve length was great, which is a bonus because I have long arms, so this may be an issue for others. I had to snug the waist in all the way and still had plenty of room inside the jacket. The overall length of the jacket was great too...not too short while riding and I wore it with a pair of Scorpion Savannah II pants. We rode all day in 60 degree temperatures and I wore a light fleece underneath. I stayed extremely warm (almost too warm), but was able to vent the jacket. Bottom line, I would recommend ordering up one size from your normal sizing. Again, I could have stayed with the XL and probably been okay, but with my extreme broad upper body and my desire to be able to layer I went with the 2XL. All of the padding and safety features were right where they needed to be without added bulk. This jacket is well worth the money and looks great and performs well!

While it can feel a bit snug when the inner lining is on, it is still a very comfortable jacket. I loved the detail of having a saint Christopher medal on the inside if one of the pockets.

Both this jacket for my wife, she loves it!!!! The only downfall is it does run a little small, but still fits her great. The detailing is really good, I have the same jacket in white and it looks like they did a better detail job on hers. She loves it so much she wants to pull the padding and wear it out one night.

I just received my jacket and I love it! I'm 5'9" and 145lbs and usually wear medium but based on the measurement of the bust (39") I ordered a Large and it fits really well. It's a little big but when it's cold, it will leave room for a heavier shirt underneath. The body armor is a little bit bulky, but this is my first riding jacket, so I don't really have anything to compare to it in that department.

Great looking jacket
As usual, ICON delivers on how the jacket looks when you're wearing it. Fit is a little small, but without the zip-in liner the fit is perfect. I bought this jacket to wear for summer riding anyway, so that's not a problem for me. The air flow is great, sleeve length perfect. I'm 5'3", 145lbs, 36D+, and ordered a medium. It's a little snug through the chest but not uncomfortable. The shoulders fit great, it doesn't ride up at all. Overall, it's worth the money if you want a stylish jacket that has great features to go with it.

Sturdy, comfy, sexy.
Ordered this jacket with the pink accents hoping for a little added feminine flair to the plain blacks I'd been wearing. It's perfect and I love it. One of my favorite investments ever.
I am 5'7", 120 lbs, athletic build. I ordered a small and fits perfectly. Love the longer length in the arms and down the back. Makes me feel very covered/protected. Arms reach down to my gloves, back doesn't leave anything exposed back there.
I ended up taking out all the pads because they felt a touch bulky, and especially in the summer with the heat I wanted as much ventilation as possible. I love that I still have flexibility in my arms and torso when I wear this jacket. Also getting a lot of use out of all the pockets! Love the style, love the detailing, overall this jacket is really awesome. Very happy with it!
