Icon Patrol Raiden Jacket The call of adventure beckons to every mans soul. A primal need to explore the limits of earth, body, and mind. The Patrol Raiden jacket is the ultimate companion in this quest. Built on Icon's proven Patrol jacket chassis, the Raiden is a fully waterproof, all-weather, all-environment riding jacket. To keep out the wind and rain, the abrasion-resistant nylon chassis is fully seam-sealed and includes waterproof YKK zippers and a quick-action magnetic storm flap. Mounted within the chassis is a full complement of Field Armor CE approved impact protectors. A full 3M reflective graphics package provides optimum nighttime visibility. Six intake and exhaust ports provide ample mechanical ventilation while the removable Thermolite insulated liner helps keep your core temperature regulated. Externally, Icon added enough pockets to carry everything you need for distance rides and included a removable external hydration pocket to hold a 1.5-liter water pack ( not included ).

Not much else to say. Its awesome. Its an expensive jacklet, but everything Icon is. But once you see it, you won't remember what you paid for it. Identical in most features with the other Patrol jackets, but looks sweet with the sponsor patches. Its a crazy warm jacket, waterPROOF, and without comparison, is the most WINDPROOF jacket I have ever worn. Went riding in 26 F last week, with heated jacket underneath, and almost sweating at the end of the ride.Very impressed with how windproof it is, and thats usually what kills you on a cold ride day. Its awesome. And as always, kudos to the Revzilla guys. Jackets (Icon) are always sized smaller, so I am always ordering 3XL or 2XL.

Usually with Icon products, you get what you think you paid for. This was a little flimsier than I had pictured. Their stuff is usually pricey but fantastic and high , high quality. But honestly, this thing does what it should. It should just do it for $15.

This is far and beyond one of the nicest leather jackets I have ever seen. Impeccable quality, very heavy leather. Its not a light jacket, but I got the 2XL. As usual, pricey, but feels worth it once you put it on. A few things in life you should pay top dollar for, leather jacket is one.

Can't say enough good things about Revzilla or this jacket. This thing gets hot-hot. Take one of two rides to get it dialed in, but totally changes your perception of being comfortable while you are riding in the cold. Took a 150 mile ride this past weekend, 28 degree's when I left, and couldn't have been toastier. When its that cold, and your riding at 75 mph, you just leave the jacket on MAX, and if you need a little cool down, I just adjust my collar, let a little cold air in. On a 40 degree day, you would only need the jacket on a medium setting. Great price, too. The design is simple and very effective. I only had to make minor custumizations to all the cords so they weren't flopping around, but everyone's riding style will dictate something a little different.

I got the gold reflective shield for the Variant. They go well together. Only takes three minutes to change out the shield, though I would not want to do it every day. The plastic EVERYONE makes shields and the attached components out of isn't the most resilient stuff. But the reflective shield looks awesome.

Awesome looking. You can see the weave of the glass/carbon fiber in the helmet, very cool techno looking. Comfy. Does come with the dark tint shield which looks amazing, but so does the silver tinted (chrome-look)screen you can get at Revzilla. Lots of details on the helmet. Love the visor. The face shield takes two minutes to change, and after you do it once, its not too bad. Takes a delicate touch, but all the helmets you buy today you have to pull apart gently. Nicest thing I have seen is the small opening segments the shield goes through, so you can JUST crack it. Most helmets don't have as many openings (detentes I believe).
But above all, your going to buy this because its very nice to look at.

Icon Variant Battlescar Helmet Gazing down the barrel reveals a clarity of purpose. A single-minded mission devoid of right or wrong. The Variant Battlescar understands this unequivocally. The raw shell, tinted in variegated shades of dark earth and covert green, is truly unique amongst its contemporaries. It is both unrefined and elegant. A natural beauty with a penchant for three-round bursts.

This jacket FEELS expensive. Looks unbelievable. I was very impressed right out of the package. It looks like it takes a lot of time to put together, so the cost seems right. It is one of the more expensive jackets I have ever bought, but this one feels like it is worth it. I was planning on wearing a Tourmaster heated jacket under this thing, for riding when its 30 or below, but when I tried them both on together, I got the impression I may have overkilled, but thats a good thing when it comes to being warm on a bike. I got the 2XL (I wear a 3XL in Icon leather jackets, normally I am 6ft 235 lbs) , and it fits perfectly, even with the Tourmaster Heated jacket underneath. The Patrol seems VERY adjustable. Magnetic clasps are very heavy duty. All around impressive. Highly recommend it. I got the red, wanted the Glow in the dark but reviews said it might be hard to keep reasonably clean.

I have seen the reviews between the FX-37 and the FX-39, and I agree that the FX-39 is a big leap. A better strap system, vents work well, and the little distortion in the AFX FX-37 is not at all present on the AFX FX-39. Great helmet, well put together, great paint job, solid features in general. And you CANNOT beat the price.
