Icon Jackets are WAY OVER priced IMO... Some of them look pretty cool though.

One stood tall. The faceless rider enveloped within impending doom. One hundred and twenty-five skulls embellish his wicked form. Cast metal chattel forced into servitude on his dystopian suit of armor. It is with this badging, these marks of Cain, that the Metal rides forth on the highways of this land. Forever wandering, observing, judging, and in the end - harvesting.

If I saw somebody riding with that jacket I'd have to fight the urge to knock them off their bike. The spark trail they would leave would be like a fireworks show.

SOOOOO many bad things to say.

icon is junk
jacket is ugly as sin

I had an Icon Victory Hero jacket. It was a great jacket, but I only paid $300 for it. They're getting way out of hand with their prices.

move the decimal point two spaces to the left and that is what it might be worth.

style is a personal choice, so its whatever if you like it or not.

BUT...

You will not get $1200 worth of use or protection out of that thing.
