Icon 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 Highway Hanky fills the gap between helmet and jacket when the temperature drops. The fleece lining is soft and adds warmth. The rear snaps make it easy to put on or remove. Much better warmth than a bandana and more convenient than a balaclava.
After trying this out, I ordered the other color as well.
Yes, I recommend this product.

As usual for Icon, this jacket is well constructed and fits true to size. It works well layered under a riding jacket to add warmth or you can wear it solo for casual use. Revzilla's rating categories don't really fit for this jacket. It is better than the ratings indicate. I have similar jackets made by Carhart, North Face and Sierra Designs, but I now wear the Icon most of the time when I need a jacket of this type.
If you need a base layer jacket or a lightweight shell for casual wear, this jacket is a good choice.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Icon Elsinore Boots The Icon 1000 Elsinore's five-strap, alloy-buckle chassis, stamped metal heel plate, and internal steel shank combine for a serious dose of moto-x homage. The traditional Goodyear welt construction mates the Icon street-specific sole to the magnificent leather upper. A medial entry zipper, allocated from Paratrooper jump boots, is the only luxury the Elsinore will allow itself. A modern relic from an era when men were iron and tanks were steel. The Elsinore, old-school MX reinterpreted for the urban sprawl. Features 12 top grain leather upper Goodyear welt construction Icon cast metal buckles Icon stamped metal heel plate Heat pressed leather shifter panel Heat pressed molded leather shin plate Internal ankle protection Axialmetric steel shank YKK Zippers

These boots are very well made. I am impressed with the quality of the leather and the attention to details. These are a steal at this price.
The fit was true to size and quite comfortable after initial break-in. (I wore them around the house for several days.) The leather is a bit dry out of the box, so I've given them 2 treatments of Lexol conditioner. This helped limber up the leather and accelerated the break-in process.
The styling may not suit everyone, but I really like it. Very unique modern twist on an old school boot. If you like the looks, BUY THEM now!

I must say I am disappointed in these gloves given the price paid. The carbon fiber knuckle protection presses against my knuckles too firmly to be comfortable for long rides. Finger length is okay, but the internal seams have too much material and rub my fingers and finger tips. Ventilation is average. Construction appears to be above average/good. Size chart indicated I needed a large and I ordered XL. There is NO WAY a large would have fit me. The gloves feel good when on my hand, but once I grip the handle bars the knuckle guard starts pressing on my knuckles. I hope they loosen up, but I'm not sure I can stand wearing them enough for it to happen. I am going to soak them in water and wear them until dry to see if the fit improves. If not, they are going in the trash..... Too bad since they are nice looking, well constructed gloves.
