I am 6' and 225lbs. I normally wear size Large in American cut gear for a snug fit that I like. But for this jacket, the XL fits perfectly, so I suspect the sizes may run a little small for this model as noted by a previous reviewer.
We've had a cold winter, and I normally wear heated gear. But I ventured in 28*F with my new Scorpion with just the thermal liner and it was very comfortable. It has great wind protection so I stayed warm. Admittedly, it was only a twenty minute ride, so I couldn't say it would keep me warm on a long ride.
I particularly like the velcro waist cinches to customize the fit. The arms are pretty snug already, so I don't use the sleeve adjustments.
I never cared for double zippers, which make it finicky to zip up the jacket. But I have this issue with all double zippers. I never unzip from the bottom, so this feature is just a hassle for me.
Style-wise, this jacket almost a modern interpretation of a classic jacket like Belfast. Very clean lines, classic pocket placement and cinched waist. Of course there are modern features like venting and reflective elements.
I recommend this jacket based on it's value, quality, features and style.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Icon Tarmac 2 Boots The Tarmac 2 Boot is the fusion of athletic shoe design and necessary motorcycle riding features. An emphasis on street sportbike-specific geometry, increased comfort, and ease of use sets the Tarmac 2 Boot apart from all motorcycle boots that have come before. A reinforced upper, steel shank, molded ankle plate, reinforced toe and heel box equip the Tarmac 2 Boot for duty. The sculpted bottom unit was specifically designed to work with sportbike rearsets and allow positioning of your foot for all-day riding comfort and performance. Add a pre-tensioned stealth lace system and overmolded breathable mesh and you are left with a shoe to take on both all-comers, and all-corners. Features SUEDE LEATHER AND OVERMOLDED MESH UPPER SPORTBIKE-INFLUENCED BOTTOM UNIT GEOMETRY AXIALMETRIC STEEL SHANK PRE-TENSIONED STEALTH ELASTIC LACING SYSTEM MOLDED ANKLE PLATE

I highly recommend these boots. I ordered size 11, my normal street shoe size, and they fit perfectly. They slip on easily, due to the elastic bands Icon uses in lieu of laces. Once on, they are very secure with the ankle strap that Velcro's across to the inside, which makes it easier to attach/detach than if it were to attach on the outside.
On the bike, the shifter toe pad is right where I need it to be, and seems to be holding up fine. I noticed that the soles are gripper to road surfaces than my other boots. Particularly on wet roads, where I feel more secure, especially when I come to a stop on my 800 lbs Triumph Rocket.
Another thing I like about these boots is that they don't scream "motorcycle boot" when off the bike. They look like athletic hi-tops and is a better match for my mesh summer jacket than my engineer leather boots. I did expect the boots to flow air like my mesh jacket, but they don't. I don't really feel air through the boot at speed. But they must breathe well because my feet aren't sweltering on hot days.
Lastly, the Icon Tarmac 2 boots are comfortable to walk around in. I ride often with my wife, and those rides often involve exploring and enjoying local flavor. I have relatively flat feet, and these boots feel fine after hours of strolling around.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I like this jacket. It is warm with the lining zipped in. But in the summer, it flows air well with the arm and chest zippers opened up. It isn't armored though. And it runs a little large. Also, mine is not pure black. It actually looks like dark brown in the sun.
Yes, I recommend this product.
