Icon Anthem Mil-Spec Mesh Jacket
Junk within one ride
I love almost everything about this jacket, but the one thing I hate is a deal breaker. It fit wonderfully out of the box and was everything I was looking for. Took it for a ride to a doctor's appointment. While I was waiting I made the awful mistake of leaving my jacket on. My sleeve brushed against the, for lack of a more precise term, male Velcro Id pouch. It apparently grabs everything including the fabric of the sleeve and any mesh part of the mesh jacket. It immediately linked to the mesh and, when I moved my arm, ruined the fabric that is supposed to keep me safe. Now I have a one ride jacket with one sleeve that looks like it is five years old. Apparently icon doesn't feel like this is an issue and is refusing to cover it under warranty. It seems to me that a jacket with a self contained design flaw is a manufacturing defect that should be warranteed. They do not feel the same way. If you are from icon, do me a favor, pull out any of those id holders and try to stick it to any of the mesh parts of the mesh jacket. You will immediately see the defect. Buyer beware. Poor customer service. Tried to upload photo, but it won't allow me because of pixel size requirement. Trust me, stay away.

Love the outside Id pocket and inside pocket with cable loop.
Love the look and fit of this jacket.Jacket is very comfortable with and without liner.Liner is very nice for cool days.Mesh material seems very strong.Yellow is highly visible.The outside Id pocket is very handy and Velcro is very strong.Love the inside cell phone pocket with cable loop and holder.Inside pads stay in place and don't move around,very comfortable.Awesome jacket for the money,much more of a jacket than I expected.

The color stands out.
The jacket isn't to bad, its a little tight in the neck area and just a tad short. Could use a bit more reflective on it. No complaints other than that.

Love it so far!
I've ridden with the jacket several times and so far I'm very pleased with my purchase. The first ride the temp was in the middle sixties and even with the liner in I could definitely feel the cool air. With another layer of clothing or a sweat shirt on I think it would've been perfect. So for me at least, I think with temps much below about 55 degrees, the jacket won't be adequate without an additional layer of clothing. On rides on warmer days, with temps in the low 80's, it's perfect. Great air flow and I like the snug fit. I also like the armor and the hi vis color. I feel like I'm easily seen and don't blend in with the surroundings. The jacket sizes do seem to run large. I usually take a medium to large but after reading the reviews and on advice from the great Revzilla rep, I ordered the small and it fits perfectly. In summation, I'm very pleased with the jacket and highly recommend it.

Great jacket for summer
Excellent jacket, matches my 29er gloves in color, feels great, only downside is the armor pads float around a bit, other than that fit is perfect for 175lbs/6'.

Good for the price
only complaint of this jacket is the shoulder and elbow pads move around too much. Other than that it's a nice mesh for the price.

Great 3 season jacket
I got this in the sale and its a real steal. The jacket is a perfect fit for me (chest 42) and the sleeves are not to long (I have shorter than average arms). I really like the detail on the jacket and its clearly very well made. Airflow is good. It been in the low 80's here in Houston and its perfect with the liner removed. Pockets are OK. Outside ones are excellent with good zips. Inside ones could be a little better.
Overall very pleased with my purchase.

great first jacket
First off This is the first motorcycle jacket I've owned so I don't have anything to compare it to. It seems a nice quality jacket and feels durable. The jacket fits well. I really like the removable liner. I've ridden in temps of about 60-65 at night and with the liner and it does well at blocking the wind and keeping you comfortable. With the liner out the jacket breathes well and I've been comfortable around 90 degrees on a sunny day. I would definitely recommend it.
