Icon PDX Rain Jacket
Great rain jacket for over your regular jacket
I got the men's version in orange-- I'm a commuter and when I'm wearing hi-viz the cars give me more space. I am 5' 9" and the men's Medium Icon rain jacket is a comfortable fit over my women's size L armored jacket. The fabric and zippers are very good quality, and the jacket overall is well-made.

See me in orange
The products arrived quickly and in new condition. I purchased both the jacket and the pants in orange. In a dark downpour, I may look goofy as a big bright orange guy on a bike, but if anyone thinks I look goofy, that means they saw me, and that was the whole point. I've yet to actually be in any rain, but the gear is well built and seems like they'll keep me dry. The bright orange is very visible, I just wish it had more headlight reflective material on it. There is not much airflow at all, which will make for hot riding even in the rain in southern Arizona. But the piont is to stay dry, and I'm not sure how much airflow you could actually engineer into a waterproof garment anyway. For thier price and visibility, I think they will do well.

This is a quality-made, practical rain jacket. It's constructed well and aesthetically appealing. It's comfortable and fits nicely over my riding gear. I am 6 feet tall, 175lb, and the large fits perfectly over my size Large Alpinestars North Shore tech fleece jacket. I wear it for every ride, even if it isn't raining. I strongly recommend getting a high-viz jacket while riding; it can really make a difference and save a life.

I needed a good waterproof jacket for Seattle weather. My regular riding jacket has a liner which I removed because it doesn't breathe, and by the time I get to work I'm soaked with sweat. The Icon not only keeps me dry, it also totally blocks wind. I'm now able to eliminate one of my mid-layers. The construction is top notch and the materials are very rugged. I chose the high vis yellow. My wife digs it because she says I look like a fireman. Hey, whatever works! I've never been disappointed in either Icon or Revzilla, and this purchase is no exception.

Perfect for rainy days as an overcoat.
It fits perfectly over my Hooligan 2 jacket. Only problem is that the front pockets get water in them because they do not have a "zipper garage". It isnt a big deal as I put my phone in my Hooligan jacket to keep it dry anyways.

Great jacket, great look and fit, as well as function!
I'm from Portland, Oregon, so I was pretty excited to hear about a jacket inspired from riding our streets. I was in the market for a jacket that I could wear OVER my regular riding jacket to provide a bit more wind and rain protection.
When the jacket arrived and I pulled it out of the box, it looked a lot smaller than I'd expected. I ordered a large and wear a large riding jacket. I immediately tried it on to test it's fit. To my surprise it went right over my riding jacket without problems. I was able to zip both jackets up easily, and mobility was not sacrificed.
The next day I took it our on a run, not motorcycle, but a 4 mile run around my neighborhood. The reflective details were a nice touch as my run routes are all rural roads. It was pouring and the parts of my body that were covered by the jacket were completely dry. The jacket did a great job of not only keeping me dry, but cool as well. I didn't feel like I was sweating to death.
I then took it on a ride (work commute) and it performed just as well as I'd expected. Broke the wind well, and was comfortable to wear on the outside of my jacket.
For me this is a dual purpose jacket. I'll wear it as a running jacket, as well as a motorcycle jacket. So the bang for the buck on this for me is great!
I need to point out that there is no armor on the jacket, so it's meant to be worn OVER your regular riding jacket. If you wear a large riding jacket, order a large PDX jacket. Overall, great jacket, great price and my girlfriend even loved it enough to purchase her own.
