Icon Women's Overlord Sportbike SB1 Mesh Jacket
Great summer jacket, with excellent airflow!
I do ride a cruiser, and I realize this is a jacket for a sport bike, but I love it! In true Icon form, it fits perfectly. I can't believe how beautifully this is crafted for the money. I would recommend keeping a sweater in your saddle bag, because the airflow is THAT GOOD. As night falls, it gets cold. So, it does its job!
The pink color is getting me lots of looks and waves. Guess people are surprised to see a gal on a bike. When I wore my black Icon jacket (also textile, Hella 2, and I love it) no one realized I was a girl. So if you want attention, pink is the way to go...so funny!
I feel good wearing all the armor, and the jacket is very comfortable. It's got some substance to it, but it isn't heavy. I would recommend it as a top contender for summer riding.

Great Value Perfect fit
I ordered this product thinking it was going to be a bit to small but I was wrong! The guidelines they set for measurements were great! The wrist is fairly tight but I am assuming with wear that it will break in and lossen up a bit. Over all a great jacket and great products!

Love this bright pink jacket from Icon! The fit is spot on. I'm a small female with an athletic frame (5'1 and 115lbs). I ordered the small and it fits perfectly. I measure somewhere around 36-28-36. This is the first jacket I've tried on where the sleeves are not too long. The small leaves me just enough room to put a hoodie on underneath too. Definitely a warmer weather jacket with a light weight feeling. I wanted to find something with good protection that I would actually wear. So much of what I've tried on in the past was huge, heavy, and very bulky. Thankfully, this Icon jacket is none of those things. It does have shoulder, elbow and back protection built in. I also like that it is does not have a bulky/high collar so my helmet doesn't hit against anything when I turn my head. I would definitely recommend this jacket.

Great jacket...just wish it was waterproof
I love this jacket, but the reason I have it 4/5 is because it's not waterproof. I didn't realize that when I purchased it. Otherwise...I LOVE THIS JACKET! I'm 5'0" and 115 and I got the small. It fits great, enough room for a hoodie but not bulky without one. Also, I have a small neck and jackets that have a high collar tend to choke me when riding (bad) so the low/no collar on this is excellent. I wish there was more than one zippered interior pocket. Also, there's 4 pen pockets. I call them pen pockets b/c that's the only thing that will fit in them. A useless design in my opinion. Aside from all that, it's a great jacket. I've gotten many compliments on it and one reason I chose it was because it's bright pink and I want to be seen when riding. Black jackets with reflective pinstripes don't cut it for me. This is going to be a great spring/summer/fall-till-it's 40 weather. I did use it with a hoodie in 40 degrees the other day and it wasn't too bad.

Love the jacket, the color, and fit. Followed sizing chart. I am 5'1", average weight, ordered Medium. Wasn't sure if fit would be good for petites, but once arrived, and tried on, it was a great fit. Love the fun pink color. Great quality jacket. Would definitely recommend!

Everything was perfect until I used it 3 times and the snap at the wrist came apart. But even so it still works I just figured for the price it should last a bit longer. However, don't let that deter you because its a great jacket. airflow is wonderful. the lining comes out of the inside but keep in mind it only covers the chest part so if u want to be warmer u need a size up to get something on ur arms. I cant fit a long sleeve in my jacket bc it fits perfectly. And then today I found a surprise... a guardian angel is sewn into the inside zipper pocket and it has its only little pouch in there. great addition im 5'4 147 and the small fit to a T.

I love the style, just a little large for an extra small but other than that great protection, good airflow, great summer jacket. I have one other summer jacket but nowhere near as protective as this one.

Great summer jacket!
I've had this jacket for about 5 months now and it still looks brand new. With the internal armor and external sliders, I feel really protected. This jacket has excellent airflow, so you won't overheat in the summer. Also, I have ridden in temperatures as low as 40°F, but I did have layers on underneath and preferred to ride in full tuck position to block the wind. If you are going to be riding in cold temperatures or do not like to be freezing when you get to your destination, then you might want to consider a different jacket. I feel the fit is somewhat large, however when I fasten the snaps on the wrist closure it is uncomfortably tight, therefore I leave them open which I feel compromises protection in the wrist area. I feel that this could easily be fixed by someone who sews or a good set of gauntlet gloves. Overall, this is a great mesh jacket with lots of features.
