Icon Contra Jacket 4.7 5 138 138
Sweet This jacket is everything it is described to be. NO regrets ! Zilla Rocks! October 5, 2015
Best summer jacket I've had This jacket is great ...awesome air flow while riding ...road with it in the 95 summer days it was hot while stopped but when riding felt like u had AC .. September 21, 2015
My husband love this jacket When I bough this for my husband. I wasn't sure if was what we want. But when he got it for his birthday he was very happy. August 17, 2015
Overall a recommended product Use: I use this jacket as a daily commuter on the street with a short duration top speed of 100 on the highway. Otherwise, generally going at 60km/h average. Quality: I have been holding off writing a review until I was able to put some miles on the jacket. Within the first week, the motocross style side buckles broke at the rivet. I think it's a cap, and not a rivet though. I pushed it back together and added super glue to secure it. Now the buckles are nice and secure. Time will tell if it continues to hold. Fit: I bought a size medium. I'm 5'11" 170lbs with a 40" chest and 31" waist. The jacket fits true to its description - a relaxed fit. The shoulders and their armor lines up nicely with the shoulders. The chest has an inch or two of space if I decide to add a back and/or chest protector. The waist is a bit roomy for me even with the side buckles cinched all the way. I attribute this to the "relaxed" fit. It's roomy, but not too excessive. I would probably be ok to lose another 1-2" overall at the waist of the jacket. The arms are the correct length for my frame. In the riding position, the jacket sits flush with the end of my wrist. Measuring from the underside of my armpit, my arms are about 21-22" long to the wrist. Airflow: I don't get cold that easily, but this jacket flows a TON of air as you are riding. In the mornings (about 10 degrees C), I actually ride with the liner in and it blocks quite a bit of air and keeps me very warm. Overall: Value for the dollar on this jacket is pretty good. I gave the jacket a 4 because it has a good fit and finish (minus the buckles) and comes with well fitted shoulder and elbow armor. If it had a CE rated back protector, it would be a 4.5 rating. I have to knock off the 1 star for the buckles... If you were to make this the 1 jacket you owned for regular street, the only thing you need to do is upgrade the back protector and you are good to go. Obviously I have not crash tested the jacket, but it does feel quite solid and protective. August 11, 2015
It does as advertised 6'3" 180 with 42" chest, 31" waist - bought large. Pretty loose in the body, but that is typical for my build. Moves a ton of air and the armor settles well on my body, good freedom of movement. I would love to see manufacturers stop designing liners - if you are like me, you have plenty of insulation layers of your own that would work. Plus, if a storm rolls in, I would rather throw on a shell or other. Icon did a nice job with the coat and liner, I just needed the coat. August 10, 2015
Make sure to take the liner out in the summer Excellent jacket, fits true to size and really makes you feel protected while you're out around town. I mostly commute in the city with some spirited riding in the mountains, this jacket is flexible and allows me to move as necessary. Forgot to take the liner out when I first ordered it and on a 90* day it can be brutal. Definitely breathes well without it. I'm sure i'll be able to use this jacket and the liner well into the winter here in the south. Make sure to upgrade the armor, the cheap and thing foam stuff that comes with it from the factory is laughable. July 27, 2015
Good quality I might be biased since this is my first and only jacket so far, but it has been good to me. I enjoy being able to remove the liner when it gets warm. When I do have the liner on, because it's cold, I usually have another long sleeve on underneath. This causes the jacket to fit me tightly, but it does not constrict me from being able to ride safely. I can be easily solved by using a bigger size jacket. Perhaps I just need to purchase a winter jacket. The pockets are able to hold my wallet and my phone and the zippers are easy to use. June 29, 2015
Great summer jacket I love this thing, great air flow without the liner, cellphone pocket is good quality, sleeves are the perfect length for me and it looks dang good too. The armor is placed perfectly. Solidly built June 16, 2015

Sort by:
RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Laurie D: I bought this for my 17 year old son who rides a street bike. It's just what he was looking for; it's a 3 season lightweight relaxed fit jacket without a lot of hoopla. Nov 21, 2015
David W: after reading 15 pages of reviews on this jacket, I was sold Aug 19, 2015
Craig T: Love the jacket. It flows a ton of air. I still question manufacturers taking the time to make liners that take time to zip in/zip out, rather than just letting us consumers choose to wear shells over (ie rain) or bundle up underneath with a myriad of insulation layers I already own. The design of the integrated liner is impressive, but I don't see it as a premium feature that drives my purchase. Aug 5, 2015
Anton D: I like the price, the design and built-in protection pieces which could be upgraded to D3O armor Jul 10, 2015
david k: threw the reviews online this jacket looked like a good summer option Jun 23, 2015
Joshua N: Style and design for summer time weather Apr 26, 2015
Dustin M: Well the plan is not to drop the bike but, if that does ever happen for what ever reason I know that I'll be better protected with this jacket versus a hoodie!! I've got several biker friends that have told me nothing but positive things about this jacket in particular. Apr 21, 2015
Timothy P: I would have liked to go with something about $175.00 dollars less but the thought of being scrubbed/cleaned with Road Rash in the ER is enough of a deterring thought that, I'll stomach the proce.I will likely purchase a full leather in the future but the price is just too steep for me at this time. $225.00 isn't unreasonable at all however this is the item that is most likely to be returned if I don't like it; as far as the armor goes in the jacket. Apr 9, 2015
Donald M: Like the look and padding. Mar 24, 2015
Mike W: Great reviews and it looks badass, for the price you can't really beat it Mar 19, 2015
justin l: Icon is an industry leader in riding gear, both in safety and style. The Contra jacket has a very straight cut, not as tapered as the Attack fit or some of the fits you would see with a company like AlpineStar. This jacket fits me great because I don't have a tapered torso like some buff male model, and protection is great while it maintains a very high level of comfort and mobility. Mar 12, 2015
Brandon W: Icon came highly recommended by a guy who had been in several wrecks before. Mar 6, 2015
Vanessa S V: Christmas gift Mar 6, 2015
Anthony B: I wanted a jacket that would offer the protection I needed at the price I could afford. I love the fit and features of the Contra.........hell yeah! Feb 28, 2015
Linda W: I purchased this jacket for my grandson to keep him warm and help with safety. Hope he enjoys wearing his jacket. Dec 18, 2014
M G: This jacket has a lot of great features too it and I am a Icon fan. I didn't want a leather jacket since they are harder to maintain and I like the style and cut of this one. It was also a good price and they had my size. Oct 17, 2014
"" ": It was the style I was looking for in my budget and It fit well. Bought in store. Oct 14, 2014
david l: the reviews made this jacket seem really good. im 6ft 140lbs I ordered a Medium I hope it fits Oct 10, 2014
Patrick B: New to riding and wanted a slightly better "visibility" jacket without wearing a yellow vest just yet. Plus it seems like a great jacket for Texas weather since it has the removable liner and the mesh areas! Oct 6, 2014
Greg H: needed a little more solid jacket for cool weather riding Oct 6, 2014
Robert E: Great reviews! And very popular so must be good! Jul 20, 2014
thomas b: Awesome jacket.... It blocks wind and cools areas that get hot on the body... The white jacket is awesome because its high Vis, Only thing i would change is adding reflective material on the back, chest and forearms. Jul 12, 2014
Chris B: I already have this same jacket and LOVE IT. The only problem was that I ordered it through my Kwai dealer and he talked me into a 3x. I would have taken it back, but I thought it fit because of the winter liner, took that out because of summer and now it's way to big! Just ordered the 1x after trying it on in another local store, fits great. May 31, 2014
Michael P: Matched Helmet, Timeless May 27, 2014
Alan B: Love the weight of it May 18, 2014

michael s: The slate with the Anthem glove in gray matches the tank on my 2010 Harley 48 Sportster ... I hope! Mar 3, 2014
Jane W: nice multi-season jacket. good looks Feb 27, 2014
anthony w: i have two jackets already. none are for mild winter temps. i believe this jacket will do just fine in the winter. since they run a little large then i could put a layer under neath this jacket to keep me nice and warm. Feb 11, 2014
Randy M: great reviews and looks good. Jan 22, 2014
Mohammad Z: It looks great and despite the warm weather here in Singapore (80 degrees f on good days), the airflow is awesome. For my frame, 155lbs, 5'7", the size small fits perfectly. Been getting a lot of attention too when i wear it while riding through town. Jan 14, 2014
Deborah R: Christmas present to my son. Dec 31, 2013
Michael G: Heard about this product from a friend. Appears the perfect birthday gift for my son. The fact you had what I wanted, at a fair price, no shipping charges, and a reasonable exchange policy in case it doesn't fit, sealed the deal. Nov 24, 2013
Noah W: Good looking, cheap riding jacket. I'd recommend getting the upgraded Striker back protector though. I had a pretty bad crash in this jacket and got pretty banged up. If not for the upgraded back protector I would also have pretty bad road rash on my back. Nov 21, 2013
Robert H: Birthday gift Nov 13, 2013
Anthony K: Looks cool, was in the market for a mesh type jacket. Nov 12, 2013
Michael M: Good price. Good review Nov 1, 2013
Allan H: Liked the look and the venting. Reasonable protection. The rubberized ICON logo on the front could be a little more subdued, but otherwise, fits the bill. Oct 25, 2013
David M: I LOVE ICON ! Oct 16, 2013
Stefan R: Know the name and liked the look. Sep 20, 2013
Nicholas R: To protect my upper body Aug 29, 2013

Steve B: Great look and we'll reviewed gear!! Aug 19, 2013

Mohamed O: This is a very good Jacket,its a true size and it fits well except for the shoulder protection pads which are lower than they should, I have experienced the back length issue with my other Jacket (Speed & strength) but not with this one, I drive a Gixxer and even at high speeds it still provide a good back cover.

Jeff O: The back is plenty long for me, I wear A 3xl. I can wear a 2xl but its to snug for me. Sleeves in the 3xl are about 1 1/2 longer than I would like but its not that big of a deal. jacket is great. Zip out liner is very nice. Oct 29, 2013

A shopper asked: I'll be using this jacket for commuting if I buy it. I'm interested in the white because it is more visible, but I am worried about how it will show grime and dirt. Are you able to wash the outer shell? Aug 18, 2011

chuckles: i have the white (last year's model), it is very dirty after about 4000 miles. the collar is definitely the dirtiest. and it can be washed (all the armor comes out). as you might expect, that road grime is basically embedded into the jacket by now... pretty hard to get it really clean. all that said, i'm looking at getting the latest version of it, and white is drawing me in again. :) Aug 18, 2011

Mike22: Yeah mate, I have this jacket and its basically hand wash cold, after removing the armour and liner etc. I cant say if it will stain but I don't imagine textile or mesh will stain too badly. I have one of their mesh jackets in white and It hasn't given me any issues. Nov 8, 2011
Reply to Mike22 Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris K: If you remove the armor from the jacket you can machine was the outer shell on a cold water setting and let it hang dry. I would recommend an extra rinse cycle since the fabric is very dense and soap residue often needs an extra cycle before it releases. Aug 19, 2011

Mexikan2010: Hey there, well i also have a white jacket and I use it all the time! since its white i do use the washing machine, just take the protection out, just becarefull with the dryer. No need to dry it just take it for a spin. Jun 18, 2012

Jonbones: Most are hand wash with warm water and mild detergent--white will tend to get dirty over time, just the price you pay for having white material exposed to the elements. Mar 12, 2012

Francisco M: If recommend for daily use

Vented in the abdomen, it works properly.

If used in cold weather, has a very good cover.

I have not used in rain, but I think it is not ideal because in the abdomen has material that allows the passage of the wind, and therefore water.

Michael L: Don't let the light appearance fool you. This is one tough (and comfy) jacket, especially if you decide to upgrade the back protector. Mine has held up pretty well for more than 2k miles and is still in great shape. Feb 21, 2014
Reply to Michael Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Jeff O: It is a light textile jacket, good for warm and moderate cold weather (removable liner) . I would say medium protection, it does have removable Armor in the back, shoulders and elbows. Overall a nice jacket. Feb 22, 2014

A shopper asked: I like the Icon jacket, but I'm concerned about the material it's made of. All the specifications say, is "durable nylon" on the shell. Many jackets will say something like "600 denier" , or even "Cordura"....to show that the material is resistant to abrasion....."durable nylon" doesn't tell me much, and I wonder if it is going to melt if I end up sliding on the pavement.

Not being critical....but want to know what I'm buying.

Mike22: I own the contra and it is heavier than any textile jacket I have seen around the shoulders and elbows. Stitched together quite well too. Go to the Ride Icon website and read some of the survivor stories, there's some pretty big slides in there with not a lot to show on the jackets.

Mind you, by getting textile you are sacrificing something (usually) rather than choosing leather. But I trust this jacket to hold up for sure.

Mike22: I own the contra jacket and it seems very tough and the impact areas are reenforced well. Personally I dont second guess it.

Also, try going to www.rideicon.com and having a look at the crash stories in the "Limiter" and the "Survivors" section under the culture heading. Plenty of stories about their gear holding up like a trooper in big slides. Certainly made me trust them.

Matthew M: Crash tested this last Friday. Bought the farm at 65. Dug in with my arm as hard as I could to try and save my legs (just regular jeans on). Held up very well considering speed and the violence of impact. Walked away from that crash with about 3x3 square of road rash to the arm I dug in hard with. Will be buying the exact jacket again when the insurance check comes. Jun 29, 2014

Nick V: I am 5'9'' or so, about the same weight and a medium worked with me. I live in Chicago and have no problem getting a a couple warmth layers under it, but it looks bloated. I think a small would be too tight. It also has adjustable tighteners if you get it and its a little big. Great jacket. Another note, the colors are slightly different than they appear in the picture, but you are getting black so I would assume that doesnt change much Dec 23, 2013

Colin N: If this helps any im 5'10" 180lbs and my icon contra is a size large. Its a little loose fitting. I think I could fit into a medium comfortably. So for you I I would say either small or medium depending on how you like your your fit. Icon generally runs larger than the Italian brands.

John W asked: Ok, I ordered this jacket in an XL. Well, my bride did for me. Anyway, I'm 5'10" 220lbs 45" chest 33" sleeve. It fits really nice with the liner. But I noticed that without the liner and sitting on the bike it bunches up in the shoulder a lot. (I've learned to sit in the riding position for proper fit test). Is this normal, or should I exchange for a Large? It fits well in the chest. Jul 21, 2014

Michael C: I think you got the right size. I would also consider the sleeve length in the riding position. I have a little bit of bunch up but it fits good everywhere else including the sleeves. I also use a hoodie instead of the liner, it's a lot warmer. Aug 7, 2014

A shopper asked: Hey I just bought the jacket. I tried the XL but the sleeves were to short and it was a bit snug as I'm 6'0 and 225 pounds so I went for the 2 XL and it fits ok with the adjustable waist but the sleeves. Come down to almost mid palm what odd you guys think go for the bit of a snug fit or keep the ok fit but longer sleeves? Feb 13, 2014

Zachary H: Depending on the gloves you wear, if you got full gauntlets (go higher above the wrist, you could cover up the skin that shows because of sleeves being too short w/ the XL). Or if you have the gloves that stop right at the wrist then the 2Xl may work. Go out and sit on your bike and try to move around if you can. If you are comfortable and feel confident you can ride to best of your ability, then keep the 2XL. If you think it would hinder you and it feels "off", then go back to the XL and buy gloves that would cover the excess space, OR look for an entire new jacket. Hope this helps. Feb 13, 2014

John S: I got the xl, 5'6, 190 lbs. It's all about comfort, I own leather too, and you want it somewhat snug. Not too snug where you can't move. Just make sure the length of sleeves do not interfere with your riding . Hope this helps Feb 13, 2014

Brian L asked: Can the Icon Stryker CE back protector be added to this jacket?
I'm 5'11" round 205 lbs w/ an athletic build & my chest is 46.5" & my sleeve is 35".
I'm usually between a LG/XL depending on fit, but the chart shows me to get a 2XL is this right?

Victor G: Looking on icon web it is upgradable to to stryker CE back protector.
About size i am 5'11 195lbs 42" chest, 32" sleeve normally wear everything large. Large fits me almost perfect. Sleeve is about 1" to long, chest spot on, little tight in shoulders when band new. It will loosen a little after one or two rides

Nick V: Not 100% sure about the stryker, but the back protector slot is compatible with the Klim and other inserts. As for size, I wouldn't think you are a 2xl and would go XL. It fits pretty standard unless you want room for multiple layers. Hope this helps Feb 2, 2014

Chris K: The sleeves run a bit long, but not quite that much, so I think getting a size LG would split the difference without being to large for you. Jun 7, 2011

Jonbones: I'd check a XXL, at most a XXXL, you sound fairly thin for your height, and the jackets get bigger all around the bigger you go. Mar 12, 2012

A shopper asked: Hi,

Do the shoulder and elbow protectors have an outer hard shell or if they are of the softer type? Although the photos of the product on Icon's site are quite clear I cannot tell for sure if the outer part is hard plastic or not.

Jordan M: Hey John I bought this jacket in a size large, last spring. I am 6 ft 150lbs. The large size fits perfectly on me, my back is completely covered, arm length is just right, and overall a solid jacket for the price. Jan 15, 2014

Stead R: John,

Love the jacket but not sure about your sizing without more specs from the company. I'm 5'-10" and weight 185. Bought a medium and found it fit me well. The back does extend down to provide coverage while in the leaned forward position. Nice thing about Revzilla is their exchange policy though you'll pay shipping cost to get is back. Hope this helps. swrod

Ahmad S: Medium will be better, just in case you have it on in cold weather, any additional clothes underneath the jacket need some space, so a medium for your weight & size would be more convenient Jan 10, 2014

Dr3w: I'm 6'1", about 150 lbs. I bought this in an XL, and as far as size goes: the arms a little long for me -but might be a bit short on you- and the body has so much space, I could carry a pillow in it with me. As much as I hate to say it, you might need to look elsewhere, maybe get something custom-tailored. Feb 6, 2012

Mike22: Mate I would ring them or send a direct email for something that specific. I own one of these (the contra) and I can tell you it will NOT last you down to 30F.

frank3: My chest is a 39 and, I ordered an XL. The XL was still really tight in the chest and shoulders. I like my riding gear tight and, I was pleased with the fit once I broke in the jacket. I would go with an XL. Aug 15, 2011
