in typical American style it's oversized in the gut. I could live with that but the arms are way too short, which makes the thumbholes useless. it cuts off the circ in my hands if I try to use them, and it fits terribly under my Spidi leather, which is what it's intended for. the arms stop 1/2way down my forearms and the extra gut material just hangs out the bottom of the jacket. I'm 5'7", 145, average build, as in the size people who don't eat fast food all day are supposed to be. it's getting so hard to find anything that fits anymore. American co's just assume we are all built like hobbits. but I'm built like an elf, dangit. if you have short arms and are wide in the middle then this is for you. if you are long and thin, keep looking, unless you dig the baggy thing. I'm going to try something from a european co, they still cater to the fit...
No, I do not recommend this product.

Icon 1000 Highway Hanky It is no way to live dust-choked nostrils and lungs backfiring from the spent fumes of open pipes. The Icon One Thousand Highway Hanky addresses these particulate needs of the modern rider with a distinctly low-tech solution. A finely woven cotton outer layer combined with a microfleece lining allow the hanky to be worn as either a mask or as an insulating neck gasket. Equally adept for robbing stagecoaches, reducing inhaled dust, or preventing ride-numbing neckline drafts, the Highway Hanky provides a barrier against those that would do you harm. Features Custom metal snaps for size adjustments 100 cotton front 100 polyester fleece backed

the fabric around the snap started to rip the first time I took it off. I had been meaning to send it back, but I really like it and don't want to go without it while waiting on another. the fleece part is still intact, so that holds the snap in place, but the outer fabric tore right away. the snap just kind of lives in a hole under the outer layer now. I use those microfiber tube things when it's not too cold, then use the hanky when it gets to be chilly/night-time. works very well, very comfy. soft enough to be cozy, but stiff enough to stay where it needs to be. I think they should make more of these in different patterns/colors. I like the grey one; subdued is nice, as opposed to the typical Icon wackiness. most of their stuff used to be way too tacky/douchebagish for me, but they are getting better. glad some companies are starting to realize that not all motorcyclists are either plastic-mohawk-wearing, insane-clown-types who do stunts on the freeway, or fat-hippie-beardos who only ride to the nudie bar down the street. yes, a few of us actually use motorcycles as a form of transportation and just need good quality practical gear, not garishly decorated 'lifestyle accessories'. while you guys are at it, try making kevlar jeans that don't look like bedazzled lady-pants, you know, without all the embroidery, fake aging, etc. that's what I would like to see...
Yes, I recommend this product.

I got this for my Spidi Gara leather jacket. I had been using a cheap joe rocket or some such back protector. that one was stiff, unyielding, but thinner. At Revzilla there is this Klim d30 back protector and, now, the Icon one. they are the same LxW but the Icon one is CE level 1 and 11mm thick (thinner than the Klim). When I first saw this one I thought it might be too thick. but it snugs right up to your back. kind of gooey almost, super comfy. the protector is the same shape as the pocket in my jacket, but slightly smaller. at first I just put it in, but it was a tad too low and din't feel quite right. The jacket has velcro, so I decided I needed to attach velcro to the protector to make it sit just right and not move around. easier said than done. tried the stick on velcro, but it's just not tacky enough to stay. hot glue won't stick to the d30, and I didn't want to experiment with glues that might ruin it, so I opted for sewing on the velcro using sturdy dental floss. it def works. you have to be careful you don't pull a stitch of the sharp floss right through the soft protector, though. I used big loops, just 2 stitches in x shape at each corner of the velcro. Now it stays right where it should. the jacket actually fits better, now. it takes up the slack and makes it nice and snug. feels cozy and reassuring. I think that after your head, your back is very important. and having this in CE level 2 without having to be uncomfortable or unduly encumbered is just amazing. best purchase I have made since getting an RF-1100 helmet. no one wants to be a drooling idiot, but no one wants to be crippled either. get it, make it work with your jacket, you won't regret it. Revzilla is the best!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I had been going without a leather for a while, using a textile, after ruining my last one. I have always wanted a Spidi jacket. In my opinion they make stuff that looks great, top notch products, stylish, but a little more reasonable and less common than Dainese. I'm a skinny guy, so American co's jackets dont fit me so well. always too bulky, with lots of room for the big burger/beer gut. Euro stuff tends to fit much better. I wasn't sure about this one at first, but as soon as I took it out of the box I was 100% happy I bought it. Incredibly well made! beautiful and italian, just like me. haha. I'm 5'8", about 150, and the 38/48 fit me perfect. It is not perforated, which I like, it makes it more useful year round. but it doesn't get too hot, once you're moving. the underarm panels breathe well. I took a little spill in it, about a month after buying it. a tiny bit rashed, but almost unnoticeable, looks tougher now. I landed on my right forearm and shoulder. All I got was a bruise and sore arm. the armor worked perfectly. very glad I was wearing it. Riding my roommates sport bike, it was a tiny bit uncomfortable at first, but now that it's broken in, it's fine. On my supermoto, however, it fit perfect from day one. it feels to me as if it is made for that type of riding position. which I love. it has a bit of a tracker/moto look to it as well, with the padded lower back. I love the look, feel, utility(almost a year round jacket). it's perfect. my new best friend. I'm fully armored and ready for war. bring it cagers...
Yes, I recommend this product.
