These gloves seem nice and sturdy, but unfortunately their size chart was way off for me. I've been lucky with ordering online using size charts for jackets and pants plenty of times, but my luck stopped here! These things run a full size, if not a size and a half larger than their size chart recommends. But I feel even if I did have the correct size, they are too bulky and hinder use of basic controls. Blinker controls are hard to find for instance because of how bulky these gloves are. The one thing I really liked was the little wiper blade on the left glove, nifty feature. Maybe I'm just too used to my nice summer gloves, but I didn't like these at all and I don't want to pay for return shipping. So if you do decide to buy these, I say buy them a size smaller than the chart recommends.

Icon Hooligan 2 Mesh Overpants Mesh overpant - the idea seems a bit odd at first - until you try them. The Fighter Mesh chassis provides excellent abrasion resistance while allowing complete freedom of movement and incredible ventilation. Integrated mechanical flex zones further increase the mobility and comfort of the pants. Worn over a set of normal pants this outfit provides a great riding experience in warmer weather climates while providing enhanced protection. Features Icon loose overpant fit pattern Removable knee impact protectors Durable breathable fighter mesh nylon chassis Adjustable waist straps Perforated panels for venting Ribbed flex panels on knees Zippered side pockets for secure storage Ratchet waist closure

Although mesh, these pants are still a bit hefty and the knee protectors feel nice. The adjuster for the knee pads works and fits fine, however the fit of the leg is so loose and baggy (even with jeans on underneath) that I feel during a crash they will just slide out of place.
The cuff at the bottom of the leg by the boot is interesting. It's too big in the sense that even with boots on, it's very baggy and flaps around while riding. But at the same time, if I already have my boots on and I'm trying to slip the pants on, it's too small in the sense that I can't fit my boots through the opening, even with the zippers fully unzipped. It snags on the inside of the mesh because the zipper doesn't go up high enough for me. Maybe my boots are just too big, but trying to get these on while still wearing boots is very difficult. Not only is the opening not big enough, but the inside of the pants have 2 layers of mesh that are not connected, so my boots just snag on the inner mesh and bunch up making it a pain in the butt to pull through.
The knee protectors and waist fit fine with plenty of adjustment so no need to worry there, but the bottom part of these pants are finicky if you have a larger boot size.

Unlike the GM68 series from GMax, this series does not have the LED lights on the back of the helmet. It does have great styling though, but the fit is a bit on the smaller size.
If you want to have some better comfort while riding I say go a size up.
It comes with 2 shields, one regular and one tinted. Both are great, but smudge very easy. The open/close sliders on the vents feel pretty cheap like they will snap off if you aren't careful.
The snap closure is plastic and the chin strap comes too close to my neck and rubs it which can be annoying to constantly having to pull it forward before it just slides back into the same spot again after a minute.
Snug fit aside, the helmet has great styling, but the cheap feeling plastics and chin strap bug me too much to recommend this to a friend. It's just okay.
No, I do not recommend this product.
