Lightweight, protective, comfortable - the mesh jacket that redefined warm weather riding gear returns. The latest model Hooligan 2 sports improved materials, patterns, and construction all combining to up the ante in this classic Icon garment. Padded ballistic nylon elbow overlays provide improved abrasion protection while integrated spandex flex panels allow increased mobility. Beneath the Fighter mesh chassis lies the newest generation of Icon's CE approved Field Armor elbow and shoulder impact protectors. For even greater protection, the included dual density Field Armor back protector can be replaced with the CE approved Field Armor Stryker back protector (available separately). The Hooligan 2 mesh jacket-your ideal choice when the mercury rises. Durable fighter mesh chassis for maximum venting Heavyweight ballistic impact panels Stretch panels for increased mobility Removable CE field armor impact protector elbow Removable CE field armor impact protector shoulder Custom molded dual-density foam back pad Removable insulated liner Lined collar for comfort Internal zippered pocket for secure storage Relaxed Icon fit Imported

I'm an everyday commuter from Montreal Canada that rides from march to december, at temperature from -5° C (25° F) to as high as 35° C (95° F).
I got the (no graphic) flat black version because I don't like to look like an advertising banner and I don't regret it.
This mesh is NOT a 3 season jacket for the season we have above the 46th parallel north. I wear it as much as I can because for now this is my only armor. But, even with the inner (not so) insulated liner, this vest wile NOT provide you any warming comfort when riding below 25° C (77° F) after sunset.
But by using long-sleeve polar shirt under I can wear it from 15° to 25° C (60° to 77° F) and when adding my rain gear as a win stopper I can wear it from 10° C (50° F) and above.
Rides: 2004 Honda CB600F Hornet
Yes, I recommend this product.
