This is the first motorcycle-specific jacket I've owned, and it seems like an excellent beginner jacket. While it may not have all of the features that some higher-end ($400+) jackets do, this one seems to be a cut above most entry-level jackets.
The jacket is long enough in the torso that it keeps coverage in a standard or tucked position. The sleeves have a seam along the top that seemed a bit awkward at first, until I was on my bike and had everything aligned properly. The armor is easily removable, and goes back in with no trouble.
All in all, I'm very happy with my purchase.

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

Great style, good protection, a bit thin in the calf for me

I picked up a pair of these boots because I loved how they looked. A bit outside the norm, but not so much so that I can't wear them in to the office for work on occasion.
So far I've ridden, driven, and walked in them, and they've been great every time. The top of the boot is a bit tight on my calf, but a little time moving the straps took care of the worst of that.
The only trouble I've had is that they're a bit warm for Iowa summers if you're not inside or moving on your bike.
