“There is just so much stuff!” That is a common reaction to motorcyclists who are just beginning to look for new gear. With ranges in materials, styles, and of course price, sometimes it can be difficult to find a place to start.
The new Icon Overlord Textile Jacket is an entry-level option that will get riders on the road in a solidly constructed, moto-specific piece of gear that also comes at a great price. Based on the Icon attack fit, which is slimmer and more aggressive in design, this jacket has a sublimated chassis with mesh panels for warm weather ventilation. To extend the usage into cooler weather there is also a removable, insulated vest liner that will work to block wind and retain body heat while on the bike. Another very important feature is that the Overlord Textile will come with D3O impact protectors in the shoulders, elbows, and back so that you are getting extra protection while on the road.
Icon Overlord Textile Jacket Review:
Icon also has a Women’s version of this jacket so as to offer the best fitments for a variety of riders across the board. Proper fitment of any motorcycle gear is key and in many cases Men’s gear tends to not be as attune to more feminine cuts. For this, the Icon Women’s Overlord Jacket comes in nicely. With more of an hourglass shape to it, this jacket arrives with all of the features as the Men’s while retaining a more feminine feel.
Icon Women's Overlord Jacket Review:
For new riders or those just looking to obtain a less aggressively priced option, the Icon Overlord Textile Jackets are definitely worth the time.
Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…
