Icon Anthem Mil-Spec Mesh Jacket (Size 2XL Only)
Amazing 3+ Season Jacket. Good protection
Raw First Season Rider Review. (Plus): Great jacket for its design, style, fit. Comfortable in 60 - 90+ deg temps so far - and without the liner. Jacket breathes well. Pockets functional and zippers work well. Cannot wait until fall/winter to use the liner. Orange color is great! Purchased the upgrade back protector pad. (Minus): Original back pad weak - needed upgrade. Otherwise, jacket great!

It's like having Air conditioning
I saw this jacket and watched the video.Looks like this is a good deal on a great jacket. I ordered a large according to the size chart,but it was a little too long in the sleeves and loose in the torso. One phone call and Revzilla swapped it without a question.The medium arrived in two days and fits perfect. The liner is better that you would think of in a mesh jacket.The liner is easy to remove or install.The sleeves have zippers and snaps for more air flow without flapping cuffs. Let's see how many miles I can get out of it.

True to size and moves air.
Love this jacket and the bang for the buck. I purchased the white thinking it would give me visibility and it did but every bug you hit shows its mark. I will be trying to pick some more colors up before they are gone since they have went to closeout. If you are riding without a backpack I would suggest upgrading the back protector.

Good to go
This jacket is as comfortable as wearing gear in the Florida heat can be. The only tweak I would make would be to add some reflective material but we can't have everything for sub $200. Love it overall.

A Must for the Daily Commuter
I work on a military base, so this seemed like a no brainer. I have the yellow hi-viz. This thing is bright. I was the trail in a recent poker run and the leader said he could see me in his mirror all the way in the back. I even see those old blind ladies that have no business on the road actually seeing me (they still turn in front of you anyway lol). The velcro on one of my gloves scuffed up the mesh - it seems kind of delicate. The parts that will save your skin are built just fine though. Great liner and overall quality for the price. Its been in the 60-70's here in Ohio lately - I can really feel the cold wind even through the quilted liner - so its no winter solution, but it does help. If you want to be seen and ride safely get this jacket - if you ride on a mil installation you need to be wearing safety colors anyway - might as well get something good.

Icon Anthem Mesh Jacket
Great jacket. I'm 5'9" and about 220 lbs. Stocky build with a 44" chest and a 38" waist. The XL fit perfectly. I love the red color, it is bright & stylish, without being over the top looking. Matches my ember red sunglo Harley very well. Air flow is spectacular. The liner is a little difficult to get in, not too bad, but snaps in both wrists & also 2 spots in the inner back, so for me it's easier to grab a sweatshirt out of my sadllebag than to try and fit the liner in place. Not an inexpensive jacket, but a nice performer, feels heavy enough that it would actually function if I went down. I definitely recommend.

The secret to sizing!
I found the perfect fit - I'm 6'0" and I have a 47" chest and a 36" waist, so I have more of a 'v' than most guys, and I weigh 225#. I went A FULL SIZE DOWN ACCORDING TO THE SIZE CHART and it fit perfectly. The XL is just right.
Those cite poor fit are nearly all folks with smaller shoulders / arms who find the jacket too baggy in those areas, so keep that in mind.
If you have broad shoulders and like a fit that is just slightly more snug than what HVB is wearing in the video, then ORDER A SIZE DOWN and you'll get a great fit.
Love the air flow and the full D30 compliment. Looks cool, too (mine is all-black).

Great Summer Jacket
This jacket is surprisingly more durable and has more protection than I was expecting in a lightweight mesh form factor. I chose the lighter color, since this is clearly a summer jacket, so that it would be less hot in the sun.
Don't be fooled, though. If you're sitting in bumper to bumper traffic in 100 degree heat without shade, while your bike's engine tries to cook you, you will still sweat a bit. But while moving and for brief stops, this is great.
The armor is very flexible and is an upgrade over my previous mesh jacket.
I wasn't sure if I'd like it or not, but the little straps on the sleeves to slide your thumbs through are actually a big help to make sure your sleeves don't slide up in the wind or a in a crash (not that I tested crashing in it).
