Saved my skin!!!!
Okay, the Contra is an awesome jacket. First, and most important, I took a bad fall in this jacket and it did its job well. I high-sided at around 50MPH. The jacket's elbow and rear padding took the brunt of the impact. Not to mention I rolled an insane amount of times ***NOTE: I did have the rear upgraded ICON back plate installed!*** The jacket's textile did grind down from the sliding on the street; however, the street never made contact with my skin. Considering the extreme nature of my crash, I expected some road rash to the upper body but had none. I did break my hand though, and rash over my lower extremities. Secondly, the fit of this jacket is a bit small in the chest area. I am 69in tall and 185 in weight--I recommend the large. Lastly, the air-flow is decent considering its stoutness!!! Not to mention the white looks very good. If you're looking for an all around jacket--this is the one!! Buying my second now.

Awesome first jacket!
I purchased this jacket in white. It fits perfectly! The regular fit is nice, but it is a little bigger than I expected. So when I take out the liner it feels a little loose in the arms, but that's just motivation to hit the gym. I love the jacket! I know I asking for it by getting white, but I wont mind washing off the bugs and dirt it accumulates. The liner makes a big difference in the jackets comfort as well. It's great for night rides in the cooler temperatures, and not too thick for day time rides in the Texas heat. If I get too hot, I just remove the liner, but the jacket feels much better with the liner in it. The inner zipper pocket is a nice spot to keep my phone/wallet, and I can feel better about leaving my keys in my front pockets since they have zippers. The rubber guard on the bottom is a nice touch to protect from scratching up my tank too! I also feel better with the CE approved elbow/shoulder pads. I do have the stryker back pad as well and just removed the one it came with.

Great fit, style, and protection for the price
I picked this jacket because of the style and because a friend of mine was able to vouch for the durability and protection. He dumped his bike doing 40 around a step turn and slid for about a hundred feet. The jacket suffered some minor abrasions to the elbow but my friend was fine, picked up his bike and finished his ride home from work. I saw some comments that questioned the materials the jackets made of and I can say it's very heavy nylon throughout.

As for the fit, I'm 6'0", 215 lbs, with a 44" chest and a gut big enough that I really don't want to measure it. I bought a large and it fits me very well. With the liner, it feels like a sport fit. It's also long enough to cover everything I want covered when in a full tuck.

The only criticism I have is the back protector. I upgraded the foam pad immediately, choosing the D30 CE back protector. Even though it's also Icon branded, it doesn't seem to fit very well. It's not looking enough for the protector pocket and moves around a bit.

Other than that, no complaints. It's a great jacket and I really don't believe you can do better for the money. :)

Great Jacket, Looks Great, Seems well made
If you are looking for a jacket that will give you peace of mind, protect you in a crash/slide and look sexy through 2 1/2 to 3 seasons, look no further.

TRUST THE SIZING CHART!
I'm 5' 11" @ 155lbs and I was on the fence between a M or L.
Here in Michigan we have a pretty short riding season most years so I decided on a L to layer a fleece/hoodie under it and I made the right call, with a hoodie it fits pretty snug, but doesn't affect my movement, without the hoodie or liner it's slightly loose, but not loose enough to pull up in a slide or flap around in the wind. If I wasn't going to layer up I think a M would have been a perfect fit and that's what the sizing chart said as well.

I haven't had a chance to ride in hot weather yet so I can't comment on heat buildup, but yesterday I walked outside without a hoodie, just the liner, a big gust of wind hit the front and I instantly felt air circulate through the entire jacket except the spine area.

As far as Con's go it's not too bad.
1# The spine protector is a joke... I got this jacket last week and the day I received it I came back to revzilla and bought an Icon D30 spine protector. The elbows and shoulders are field armor as well and they seem sturdy, but I'll probably upgrade them to D30's in the near future just for good measure.
2) As others have said you will find occasional loose threads that appear from nowhere, the few I've found I just knotted and clipped the excess. Not a big deal and fairly common with a one week old textile jacket.
3) Pockets... I haven't read any mention of this yet, but the pockets have a funny aspect to them. I always wear gloves while riding, most of the time I use Icon Hooligan mesh backhand gloves with high airflow. On long rides I warm my off hand in the front pocket of whatever jacket I have on, If you do the same this will be the biggest Con to this jacket. The front pockets on the Contra are made entirely of fighter mesh inside and out, actually the majority of the jackets airflow comes from the abdomen area and is pulled through the front pockets making it impossible to warm your hands in them at speed. I will most likely find/make a removable fleece pocket protector for colder rides so I have the best of both worlds, but it's something to keep in mind if you go on lengthy rides.
4) Could be a pro or con depending on your preference. The collar around the neck is pretty short and loose, it doesn't have any strap/velcro to adjust it either, so there isn't much in the way of neck protection from wind/bugs. However, that also means the collar isn't going to rub on your neck and give you irritation.

All in all I am very happy with this jacket and as long as it protects me #if I slide/crash# I will buy another one when it's time.

For sizing reference the attached picture is the jacket with the full sleeve liner and just a T-shirt underneath it and the helmet is the Icon Alliance Dark.

Great Jacket Overall: Sleek Style, Nice Fit
After comparing numerous jackets in the Icon line of textiles, and ultimately went with the Icon Contra in all-black as I love the design and the features it listed.

I am 5'11", 225 with a bodybuilder frame (48' Chest, 33' waist), so sizing was naturally a concern. I ordered an XL after reviewing the size chart and seeing that this features the 'Sport' fit. Ultimately, it turned out that it fits a little snug if the thermal liner is in and seems to be just right with it removed. I have been riding without the thermal liner as it was purchased in late April and now is Mid May here in Nebraska, so temperatures have ranged from 50-82 thus far. The sweet spot without the liner for me seems to be between 65-75. Below 65 and it gets a little chilly at night, but wearing a thin crew neck makes it just about right. At the higher temps, it has been comfortable so far...as long as you keep moving. If you're in stop and go, it gets a little toasty, and I don't imagine this being very comfortable when it gets 85 plus so I will be getting a lighter jacket.

The 'Field Armor' feels to fit just right and adds that added sense of protection without feeling restrictive. The material feels just 'heavy' enough that it seems like it will last and hold up in the event of a slide. Overall, I really dig this jacket and tim will tell just how comfortable it is as I wear it in a wider range of temperatures, but I would have to say out of the gate, it appears to be best suited for Spring and early Fall weather.

I would recommend this jacket, and for my purposes, I will be sizing up to a 2XL for the Icon Sport fit for future jackets. I mention this as when reading reviews, that is the biggest concern of mine as athletic builds are tricky for purchasing apparel. Hope this helps and happy riding!

Great outfit (not just protection)
At first, I say I wear a size S, and this thing come a little larger at S, but it will fit another sweater inside for me, so comes in handy, especially the winter is coming. I've been riding with this jacket all the time and on two long trip.
comfortable and the vent is perfect, it might be hot for a hot day, but who cares, it's for the fall lol.
I haven't tried its protection, also I don't want to anyway, but I believe that it's great.

Im happy with it.
Before I ordered this jacket I was set on buying a sports bike so all my gear was centered around that well I changed my mind while bike shopping and went with a 1300 cruiser as my first bike and even on a cruiser seating position this jacket fits perfect. I live in Northeast Florida so it heats up and because i was borderline 2x-3x I called the guys at Rev and asked about fit sorry to say I cant remember the dudes name but his suggestion was spot on. First thing he asked was will i be wearing it in the winter months I told him yes he said if you wear just a shirt under it with the liner in it with the 2x it would be snug but if i went with the 3x I could layer it and I was at first worried when I put it on how big it felt with no liner but noticed that the armor stayed in the right places and that even standing still i could still feel air blowing through the jacket.

During the winter months the vest liner offers some air blockage and even with a thin sweat shirt under it there is still air blowing between the zipper because the liner doesnt fully cover the front but with layers it still fits comfortable. So anything under 50 F its unbearable.

The 2 pockets work well on each side but i do wish they would have put a little pull tab attached to the zipper to make it easier to get into with gloves on. As for the internal chest pocket its good for a phone thats it i have a glock 42 and even as small as it is, it doesnt fit all that well that why i use the side pocket hence the pull tab. Overall I love this jacket and i wear it everyday I ride.

Great jacket for relaxed riding in hot climates
Have upgraded mine with the Stryker back armor which makes it a little tighter and noticeably heavier.

The good:
Mesh is incredibly well ventilated, I commute in the Texas summer when it's 100+ and this is the jacket for it. Style is right to avoid looking like you came from the track and the posture is good for upright or slightly forwards riding. Decent tail converge when leaned over a little but will pull up if you lay on the tank. Elbow and shoulder armor is good. Front pockets are big enough to hold a set of glove liners plus wallet phone etc. Relaxed enough that you can stand up straight when off the bike without unzipping.

The not as good:
Sucks in cold weather. The liner is completely useless and will not keep you warm below 60. Not a big problem for a hot weather jacket but don't buy it thinking you can use it all year. The cuffs are awkward, too big to go under a gauntlet and too small to go around it. Not an issue if you ride with shorties or a casual longer glove. There is no keeper for the zipper at the top so mine will very occasionally comedown an inch or two if I leave the puller on to be caught by the wind. Included back pad is flimsy.

Great 3.5 Season Jacket
Sizing chart is spot on. I'm 5'10" and 145 pounds and I'm normally a medium in jackets. I was wary of the sizing chart because it said I was a size small, but I ordered the small anyway and it fit perfectly. With the liner in, it does a great job in blocking the wind and keeping you warm. I took it out on a 40 degree night and it kept me pretty toasty. Anything below 40 I'd recommend layering or leathering up. Hottest temperature I've taken it was 90 degrees with the liner out and kept me relatively cool. Anything over that I'd recommend a full on mesh jacket like the hooligan 2.

David W on Aug 19, 2015
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.

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.
Dustin M on Apr 21, 2015
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.

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.

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.

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?
A shopper on Aug 18, 2011
BEST ANSWER: 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. :)
Is this jacket good enough to be enough protection for everyday use? I would like a jacket that can protect me, and this one looks cool, but I think it might be a bit too light.

BEST ANSWER: 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.
i am very interested in this jacket and know that i wear a 3x or 4x. the main thing that worries me is the back length. All bike jackets ride up and i am looking for a longer one to cover the crack.

will this work or any other suggestions?

BEST ANSWER: You cannot really tell in the picture, but the back hangs lower. I ride a Ninja 650 and it hits the seat while riding with no exposure to what is underneath the jacket
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.

Thanks.

BEST ANSWER: 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.
Hi guys! I'm standing about 5'7", weighing in about 155lbs. Thinking of getting this but no sure about the size and fit. Will a size 's' fit me? Thanks a lot.
A shopper on Dec 22, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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
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.
Orange Crush on Jul 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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?
A shopper on Feb 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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?
Brian L on Feb 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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
My sleeve length says im a 4x in the jacket, but my chest size says im a medium. im not really sure what size is right for me. im 6'3 and 190lb sleeve length of 37" and chest of 39". what size do you think would be the best for me?
A shopper on Jun 4, 2011
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Say i'm an XL and i buy an XL of this jacket. Can i fit an Icon Stryker vest underneath it?
A shopper on May 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, its a pretty true/loose fit so you wont have any issues.
