Below is the standard size chart from Icon for the fit of their women’s jackets. We measured the size large to check the chart and it measures out a couple inches small. Also we used the size large for some feature photos on our standard size mannequin Shirley (the size she normally wears) so you can click through and have a look at how that fits. It works, but it is snug.
Based on what we see with the size large we checked, I’d advise you to use the chart to choose and size and then order one size bigger.
Our Two Cents
The Icon MH 1000 is a stylish textile and leather riding jacket will full armor and a “modern retro” look. Its cut for women with a tapered midsection and adjustments in the waist so you can get a good fit.
I made up the phrase “modern retro” because this jacket does both pretty well. The best parts about the styling of this jacket don’t even show well in the front factory picture. Down the sides of each arm is a strip of quilted black leather which matches the leather collar trim and the leather trim around the pockets and sleeve ends. The textile material is a crisp/sharp fabric with a nice feel and shine and is the type that doesn’t easily wrinkle (like ordinary textiles). The sharp look of the fabric is the “modern” look and the leather trim and quilted leather strips down the sides is the “retro”part.
The rest of the jacket is classic Icon… a full set of D3O included (so there is nothing else to buy) along with a removable quilted vest type liner to give you some insulation in cooler weather. For warmer weather, the jacket has “two way” zips on the sleeves you can use to shoot some air up the sleeves. And what look like zippered chest pockets are actually zippered vents, so those will allow air in too. With the venting and also the thermal vest, this jacket should cover most time of the year.
The two zippered pockets down below are actually pockets, so you’ll have some where to store your stuff. There are also a couple pockets inside.
I really like the fresh styling of this jacket, and the cut is easy to wear, so you’ll be comfortable wearing it on or off the bike. :: Paul, 10-08-18
