Icon Overlord Type 1 Jacket Type 1 meets Type A. Aggressive, ambitious, and highly competitive. These are the the hallmarks of the Type A personality. Through years of research and development, we've extracted these traits from our Icon riders, such as Jason Britton, and imbued them into our textiles, armor, and patterns. The result is our new Type 1 Overlord jacket. It's lightweight yet rugged chassis, tailored attack fit, and multi-tiered defensive armor package expose it's true nature. Aggressive, ambitious, and highly competitive. In the urban sprawl, only the strongest survive - choose your gear accordingly. Icon attack fit Durable textile chassis Removable icon CE field armor impact protector elbow and shoulder Removable icon dual-density foam back pad Icon external injected plastic protection on shoulders, elbows and back Custom printed icon graphics Heavyweight ballistic impact panels Integrated fighter mesh panels for venting Gathered elastic flex panels on elbows and shoulders Removable insulated wind resistant liner Note 4XL size is only made in black color.

I am 5'8 180 lbs and have a 42 in chest. I went with the large and the jacket fits great. Haven't tried it with the liner yet but it fits tight over a sweatshirt. I would recommend one size up if you are right on the edge of the sizing chart like I was or if most of your riding is in a colder climate and you plan on wearing a sweatshirt under it. I have worn it between temperatures of 50 and 75. In the warmer temps I definitely notice a good airflow through the jacket. It still is a warmer jacket and I look forward to trying it with the liner when it gets real cold. The jacket has plenty of pockets and the zipper works flawlessly so far. I purchased the black jacket and the design looks great. Almost has an extremely dark purple accent to the black but maybe that is just my poor eyesight. All in all I was extremely satisfied with my purchase.

 Icon Alliance Rubatone Helmet
Icon Alliance Rubatone Helmet
Icon Alliance Rubatone Helmet The Icon Alliance Rubatone Helmet is a bad ass classic in matte black. While the color is a classic the design of the helmet is all new and a refinement of the original Alliance SSR Helmet. Icon engineers have improved on the original design by adding features like a more ergonomic head shape, a new ventilation system and an Icon Pro Shield. The Icon Alliance Helmet was designed with the sport rider in mind and is a great option for the rough and tumble rider. Coming in under 200 this helmet is a great option that is also affordable. All world standard, meets or exceeds the following DOT FMVSS 218 (US), ECE 22-05 (EUROPE), SAI AS1698 (AUSTRALIA) and SG (JAPAN) safety and testing standards. Does not ship with SAI OR SG Certification stickers unless purchased from an authorized dealer in that country. Injection molded polycarbonate shell for strength Long oval headform Fully removable/washable Hydradry interior Quick-change for-free proshield with sideplates Prolock shield locking system Wind tunnel tested and refined Molded twin channel supervent for increased cooling Rear exhaust ports prevent heat buildup Removable molded breath deflector reduces shield fogging Chin venting system reduces shield fogging

Bought this helmet a couple weeks ago and it has worked well. Great for the price. Scratches easily, may want to go with a design.
