Icon Anthem Mil-Spec Mesh Jacket
After being hit by a drunk driver in broad daylight because he didn't see me, I became a big supporter of hi-viz riding gear. I have the summer weather Olympia 1 piece suit and the Olympia xmoto coat and pants, but they just aren't practical all the time. I'm no fashion geek, but occasionally I like to take my motorcycle to social functions and not look like a moron. Also, Olympia can brag about airflow all they want, but when it's 85-90 degrees I want all the air flow I can get. Which is why I bought this jacket. It's visible from outer space, and flows air like a harley guys cut off Tshirt I really like the orange because I'm a bit vain and it matches my Orange/white/black KTM. I recommend this jacket for anyone who wants to seen and stay cool in the summer.

Protection, comfort and style.
Armor stays in place, no shifting. Flows air, can be stretched in the cooler seasons with the zip out thermal included and further with a hoodie layered underneath. What out cause the thermal tears easy.
Easy to wash, mild dish soap and water from the house, summer heat+dude sweat=odor monster. My jackets been through three without a problem but I havent done the thermal cause its torn.
Also id have to say I put 2000 miles in this thing and its still BOSS.

Size down from what you usually wear. I'm 5' 5" 195 lbs so I'm not exactly the most athletic of individuals but the medium fit me perfectly and left some room to spare.
The South Texas heat is a killer but this jacket makes the 100 degree days bearable while standing still and borderline comfortable at speed. The liner is very comfortable for temps in the 50 - 70 degree range. I was unlucky enough to get caught in a storm at low 40 temperatures with windchill dropping that down to the high 30s, the lack of a collar made it so that I couldn't feel my neck almost instantly but my torso got home relatively dry albeit somewhat cold.
As for protection it held up admirably in a 30 mph low side. I slid and tumbled some 100 yards and the shoulder and elbow armor did their job, the stock back protector had been replaced by the more solid field armor piece so I can't comment on how that would have fared but I survived with no road rash or fractures thanks to the jacket and other pieces of gear I was wearing. Afterwards it showed some abrasion from where I slid but it still looks good to go.

I like this jacket a lot, glows a lot of air when it's hot. I was using it till it got down into 50 degree weather. Any colder and it can work with the liner put in, but since the neck has no collar the wind hits you right there. Great jacket overall, but one slight issue is the zipper isn't covered and that will cause scratching on your gas tank.

This is my first motorcycle jacket. Since I am new to motorcycling I wanted something with high visibility to increase my safety, the armor and reflective piping should help in that department as well. The fact that it is a mesh jacket with a zip out liner was also appealing because I didn't really want to sink too much into multiple jackets at this time. I have used it with layering in late Oct and Nov in Wisconsin and it held up fine, would be nice if there was a zip-in option with gore windstopper, could possibly even be a 4 season coat!
I am a bigger guy so I was a bit worried about sizing. I am 6' 260 with a 48" chest, I generally wear an XL in most things so I measured at it said XL. It fits exactly how a motorcycle jacket should, and even though my arms are a bit on the short side the sleeves are not too long.
The jacket seems very well constructed and the materials are nice. Mesh in most areas and some nice stretch fabric in the side. The first jacket had ordered a minor workmanship (stitching) issue but Revzilla was able to turn around and ship out a new jacket and return shipping RMA the same day so that really blew me away for customer service.
The only thing I don't really like is the Velcro patch on the front which is apparently for an ID holder, I don't really have a need for this so I may remove it in the future.

Great hot weather jacket.
This jacket is very comfortable, I always look forward to wearing it.
I went with the yellow to help reflect the sun, and also the high visibility. I've had 3 caged vehicles pull out in front of me since I've been wearing the high vis jacket.
