I've got a couple friends who ride with ICON gear and they swear by it. Jackets, helmets, and even the denim/armor pants.

Can't personally comment, but they seem to love it. If that's any help for you.

I had a pair of Ti pants in black that wre pretty nice. I think their stuff is more stunt/sround town oriented than track/travel. I gave my buddy my pants and he promptly asphalt tested them. A high speed lowside on Deals Gap, a couple of burn throughs on the thin areas but they held together. Good quality for the money. I prefer leather.

i like icon. icon motorhead jacket and icon tarmac gloves. i'm thinking of getting another pair of gloves though, the tarmac gloves are a bit too thin for me, i'd hate to asphalt grind my hands with a thin pair of gloves.

right now, this website has icon jackets on sale, i got mine for $100 under retail. http://www.metricbikes-superstore.com/

The only thing I don't like about Icon is their sizing. I got some Ti-max gloves in large (same size as my joe rockets and firstgear gloves) and they are just a bit too snug, while the others are a bit too loose. Just order a size or two larger than you think you need, you should be fine.

I have the skull jacket and gloves along with a rubatone mainframe helmet. The jacket is awesome. You'd have to see one in person to appreciate the craftsmanship and attention to detail. I'd agree the sizing can be a little tricky so I'd recommend trying one on locally if you can. I'm fairly happy with my helmet as well.

Cool, thanks for the feedback. I'm relatively new to sportbikes and I know that my old leather jacket is not gonna cut it for me as far as riding position and comfort. I just wanted to know how people liked their stuff because it seems like they sell nice products at a reasonable price.

i have a daytona jacket. I love it ... i think they have great style. great comfort. what i specialy love is the armor for the back , sholders , elbows and front arms. What i dont like is the sizing ... usualy i wear XL ... every one told me to pick a size bigger , but in my case i tried all sizes and the one that fitted the best was a large. I bought some gloves as well and had to take a size bigger for a good fit :p
Had them for all season and still looks nice . Not a stich broke. Colors are still perfect. Only thing left is to try it in a crash hehehhe
