Does anyone own or has worn an Icon jacket. I am thinkiing about getting one of the tex/mesh jackets. Looking for some fit and feel notes.

Just picked it up on EBAY for 109 from New Enough. Thats 65 dollars off the normal sale price at New Enough. I love a sale.

UPDATE: Just got my icon jacket, perfect timing considering its going to be 70 degrees outside and yes, I am going for a ride. As far as the jacket goes it os really nice and fits me well. The titantium patches are a nice touch. On one thing I did notice was that the padding is not as dense as on the Joe Rock mesh jacket I bought from New Enough on clearence. I am guessing that the Icon heavier jacket material weight may have something to do with it.

But at first glance based on the padding here is how they compare:


Shoulder Padding - Joe Rocket
Collar Bone - Icon
Stomach - Icon
Elbow - Joe Rocket
Back - Draw
Pockets(3) - Draw
Fit/Finish - Draw

After the review above it looks like a tie. As far as price goes the Joe Rocket Jacket was half the price but its a mesh jacket were Icon is a textile jacket. This may validate the extra price.

Hope this helps.
