Jacket Help
I have a white helmet, so I want to find a white jacket.

Any opinions of the Icon Hooligan 2 Threshold Jacket?




This is the helmet I'm wearing:

Probably $200-300, but I'll spend more if it's something I really want.

I just hate the black and blue Joe Rocket jacket I currently have. It's fugly.

http://www.alpinestars.com/shop/cate...eather-jacket/ (a little out of your range, but an awesome jacket)

http://www.teknicgear.com/chicane-jacket/

Those are just a few ideas.

This is the helmet I'm wearing:

Find one that fits. Depending on your build A-stars might fit, it might not. Icon might, might not. Etc, etc.

Once you find a brand that fits, then find the color.

Aesthetics are great right up until you have road burns on your upper body from some pretty white coat that didn't fit you.

Also, I'm sure that jacket will work just fine for your needs and protect you reasonably well in an altercation with the bbq sauce demons.

IMO, the half dozen giant "Icon" patches plastered all over the jacket are easily removed if done carefully. Once done the jacket look so much less squid....

this isn't a really "review" thread question, but more a question for "Motorcycle Talk".

Thread moved.

Things that don't say Icon are less effective at the mall, but rumered to be more effective when rubbed against the road.

Great jacket for warm days.
I road tested a similar icon mesh 2 summers ago at 60+. Destroyed the jacket, but I walked away with all my skin.
I realize I was lucky, and prefer full leathers these days.

Go with the Icon Daytona leather jacket in the neon yellow/white. Only $175. on sale, if you can find one.
