Icon Compound Jacket Review:
Icon Sport fit round out the feature set.
Icon Compound Mesh Jacket uses an array of materials in its construction. 1.2-1.4mm premium cowhide, fighter mesh, and abrasion-resistant textile compose the shell, with the emphasis being on the large fighter mesh panels for extreme hot weather airflow. The same kit of armor can be found, including the upgradeable backpad and the external injection-molded plastic bit. There is also a removable thermal vest liner. Ultimately, the decision between these jackets boils down to the temperature range in which you do the majority of your riding. If you're primarily a hot weather rider, go with the Compound Mesh. If you like the versatility of cool weather riding, go with the standard Compound.
Either way, you can't go wrong for the price.
