Jumping through hoops to get that new bike onto base While Icon cant help you bypass military regulations, they can help you meet them without looking like a construction worker The Mil Spec vest was designed to pass all military requirements for a mandatory reflective vest No bright orange reflective vest is ever going to win you fashion awards, but if you have to wear one, and you do, it might as well have the style and features that wont make you cringe Removable I.D. holder Adjustable fit Reflective taping (front and back) Storage pockets

The sizing is spot on, the features make this a good value for your money and it does hep to expedite getting on base. Only one suggestion for Icon, make the ID holder easier to access with gloves on as MP's often want to scan your id, which means it has to come out of the pocket. Otherwise it meets all the mil regs on reflective surface.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Dainese Bruce Gore-Tex Pants Dainese Bruce pants feature a water resistant coating as well as a Gore-Tex membrane. While Gore-Tex will keep you dry no matter what, the water resistant coating stops the outer trouser getting soaked, so the pants don't end up carrying the weight of a heavy down pour. You don't get soaked taking the trousers off when you arrive, and you don't have the problem of finding somewhere to hang your motorcycle clothing to dry. Cordura Comfort fabric Water resistant outer fabric treatment. Gore-Tex breathable, waterproof membrane. Removable thermal lining. Water outflow system at ankle. Calf zip closure for a good seal with motorcycle boots. CE Approved knee and shin armor. Soft inserts on hips. 4 outer pockets. Reflective inserts. Waist adjustment. Jacket-trouser fastening zip.

Small enough to fit under my Winter Dainese textile jacket, warm enough to ride in low-30's easily!

Great boots, very warm, a bit narrow, but admittedly I have very wide feet, so if you have regular width feet you will probably fit these perfectly..

The fit and feel of this jacket are amazing so far. Have not ridden with it yet, but will in the next week or two. Expecting good things but will update accordingly.
As far as the fit goes I am 5'10", 180lbs, 44" chest, 32" waist and I ordered the size 54, it fits just about perfect over regular clothes. I will be testing this with a heated Alpinestars vest over a regular button down or polo shirt.
More soon.
Cheers,
George in MD
