I'm really enjoying these gloves. Great quality from Icon. My only gripe is that the seams on the inside are not that comfortable against the fingers. I will probably wear these down to about 55 or 60 degrees. These will not provide for a ton of crash protection. There is barely any knuckle protection. This is a minimalist glove for sure. They are a nice step up from the REALLY basic twenty niner glove.

Icon Compound Mesh Jacket Necessity is the mother of invention. And the necessity of hard riding in hot climates dictated our invention of the Icon Compound Mesh jacket. A hybrid jacket consisting of 1.2-1.4mm cowhide in the major impact areas, the Compound has true street legitimacy. But hot weather riding demands active cooling so we assembled the remaining chassis from our abrasion-resistant Fighter Mesh TM . Additional components include articulated back armor plates, ratchet waist adjuster straps, articulated arms, and a full complement of CE approved Field Armor TM Impact Protectors. If your trip takes you through scorching heat and you demand the protection only leather can provide, consider the Compound Mesh jacket your ticket to ride. Features ICON Sport Fit Fighter Mesh and 1.2-1.4MM Leather Chassis Removable ICON CE Field Armor Elbow Shoulder Impact Protector Removable ICON Dual-Density Foam Back Pad Articulating External Injection Molded Plastic Back Plate Ratchet Waist Adjuster Straps Gathered Stretch Panels for Comfort and Flexibility Upgradable to Stryker CE Back Protector

This is a really unique jacket because there are so few out there with leather and mesh. Because it is mesh, it does allow a decent amount of air to flow through the chest, but because of the leather sleeves it is quite heavy and not a HOT weather jacket. This is good up to about 75 or 80 and then you better be moving or you'll regret wearing it. It would have been nice to have perforated leather sleeves instead of solid. I'll be buying another jacket for the mid 80 and above temperatures. The shoulder intake TPU was unfortunately cut with a sharp edge right up against the neck. In normal riding you will not notice it, but if you need to turn your neck at a sharp angle (such as at the bottom of an exit ramp) the edge can dig into your neck and cause some discomfort. They really should have been rounded off. This problem is not as bad with the shoulder armor out, but obviously taking out armor is not a good idea. Style wise, I wore this as I was leaving work the other day and I was told that I look like I'm wearing a Batman jacket. Personally, I like Batman so this was a compliment! I'm hoping the jacket breaks in a little bit to become more comfortable. I'm really glad I read up on the fitment of it before buying. I'm 5'8", 185lbs, 42" chest and 34" waist. Normally this would put me into a large, but the medium fits rather nicely. The only issue is that the sleeves are a tad long for me, but I think my arms are on the shorter side.
