The jackets run fairly standard so you can use previous experience in buying motorcycle jackets or street clothing. If you want to double check sizing using a tape measure, refer to the chart below. Icon calls this jacket their “Attack” fit, which is designed to be worn in the riding position. It’s not quite as aggressive as some other brands, but the sleeves are rotated forward and pre-curved for the riding position and the jacket does taper down some towards the waist. Take note of the max belly sizes listed below (they aren’t as extreme as some other brands, so if you have a bit of a belly you should be ok).

Our Two Cents
The new Overlord leather jacket from Icon is sure to be popular amongst a variety of riders. It is a high quality leather jacket with a sporty style, without being too restrictive with the fit. Don’t get me wrong, the Overlord certainly has a more sporty cut than most Icon jackets, but it’s not a race tight fit that you’ll be ready to take off as soon as you get off the bike either. Icon calls this the “Attack” fit, which is designed to be comfortable in the riding position. The sleeves are rotated forward and the arms are pre-curved for comfort in the riding position. The 1.2 to 1.4mm leather is nice and thick, and should hold up very well over time as well as in a crash. The Overlord should work very well in a variety of climates, except for maybe the coldest temperatures. There are mesh intake vents at the shoulders, and the center of the torso is perforated in the front and back. The sides of the upper arms and torso are also perforated, and there are Icon logos creatively perforated into the forearms. For cooler months, a vest type insulated liner is included as well. The inner arms are made of a stretch material which keeps this jacket very comfortable, and there are accordion style stretch panels behind the elbows and shoulders as well. CE approved armor is used in the shoulders and elbows, and Icon’s dual-density foam back pad is upgradeable to the Stryker CE back protector as well (see below).
