Great for riding on Base.
Mostly high quality product. Zipper broke right off on my first one, Icon replaced, no problem. No problems with replacement. I like the ID pocket with lanyard. Best looking of the orange vests.

This vest is awesome I use it when I'm fishing. Boating or Hiking . I love the id pocket it holds my fishing license. The velcro I think willl get old and wear. But overall I love it I don't ride a bike but this mil-spec vest serves me well.

This vest has great reflectivity at night. To be extra safe, the retro-reflective safety orange is highly visible to the eye. When wearing this it is a bit heavier than the other light vests. There is no protection on the vest but the stitching and fabric feels solid.

You WILL Be Seen
I am in the military it a Hi-Viz vest is a required piece of personal protection that we must have on in order for us to be able to ride onto base. That being said, this vest meets all those requirements. Plus, the ID holder is a bonus and you WILL be seen in this vest. Although the material is not as high quality as the Icon Interceptor Reflective Vest (which I also own, but in orange) it is still really good and approx. $20 cheaper. Love the fact that it has a pocket up front and in the back, which the Interceptor does not have. The bungee cords on the sides on the vest accomodate jackets big and small. I bought this vest in yellow to go with my Shark Evoline 3 ST Century Hi Viz Helmet which I also bought on this site. All in all, a very good piece of personal protection in that people will/should notice you a mile away.

Exactly what I needed!
I have had my GSX-R 750 for about 3 weeks, and the gate guards have been hounding me left and right about getting my reflective gear. I was just using the reflective blt that we get in boot camp. Well my vest FINALLY came in (again not rRZ, port officals)and i couldn't have asked for anything else. I light up like a Christmas tree. The ID holder is EXCELLENT for easy access through the gate. The only problem I could see is that velcro will probably wear out after taking on and off. (Yeah overseas, the guards have to ACTUALLY touch your ID) so Ill be detaching it from the vest at least five times a week. Just have to wait and see. I put a FAIR raiting for protectin because lets face it, I don't think this vest will be saving my life anytime soon. But other than that, OUTSTANDING PPE. Thanks ICON, and also thanks to RZ. Just wish you guys could ship tires overseas.

Good fit, sturdy, visible
I'm very pleased with this vest. The zipper seems strong and the vest has a nice band around the neck that's very comfortable. I've worn it with both my lightweight and heavier jackets and the elastic bands on the side accomodate the differences in bulk. It's not totally flow-through, but pretty good. I've worn it on every ride since my purchase.

Great visibility with coat options
I have a 45 minute to 1 hour commute to work, from south jersey to philly . Late fall through winter it's dark during my commute both ways. This Icon Mil-Spec Mesh Vest keeps me visible during that time.Another nice thing about wearing this vest is your not committed to a specific coat for visibility.The
only thing this vest lacks are pockets for gloves.
