We tried this style on Huey and Dewey (our size Medium and XL test subjects) and we found the jackets to fit very nicely. We need to caution you about the size chart provided by Icon though because it lists smaller-than-standard chest sizes for each men’s alpha size. For example, a Large jacket in men’s clothing will usually accommodate a 44 chest but going strictly by this chart, for a 44 chest you’d choose an XL. We think the alpha sizes represent the true size of the jackets and the chest size for each jacket in the chart is understated by about 2”. Our advice then: just choose a jacket based upon the size you normally wear in men’s clothing and give less concern to Icon’s estimated chest size. If you sometimes are between sizes, then choose the larger.

Our Two Cents
This one, Icon calls a “street jersey”. Hmmm…. well, I guess that description does do this one justice. The whole shell of the jacket is a flexible mesh material, so it is very “unstructured” much like an off road jersey. The fit is very generous (see my comments above) and with all the mesh, this jacket is strictly for mild to hot weather. The sleeves zip off too… uh, but then you lose your elbow armor, so you’ll have to decide if that is a good idea or not. Speaking of armor, the jacket does have nice armor. We sell a lot of this type of armor separately and it has a good reputation. Otherwise the jacket is very simple. There are a few pockets inside and and out. We’ve taken some closeup pics of those for you in our photo gallery. I’m thinking style is mostly what you are buying here, and if this is your style then go for it! :: Paul 03-04-13
