Default Anyone have this jacket?

I am looking for a jacket to wear on cool mornings/evenings. I most likely won't wear one while its hot out, but it would be nice to have something that as it warms up in the day I can leave on if I'm out riding. Does anyone have this jacket? JoeRocket.com

Suggestions for other jackets welcome.

I have that jacket! Its a good one. Its got CE armor protection & a good removable liner. Some brands have textile jackets that are not good quality nylon textile. This one does! I would compare it to ballistic nylon that military/LE uses.

I don't wear it for twisty rides but its very good for everyday commuting.

That's a good looking jacket. The yellow would go well with my yellow F4i.

What about this Icon Contra textile. I really like the look of it.

I don't have experience w/ Icon textile but I do have an Icon Daytona leather jacket. It has been an excellent jacket. If their leather jacket quality is indicative of their textile jacket construction, I would think this would be another good option.

Of note... My original Icon Daytona jacket had a couple of the liner snaps/connectors break off & tear my liner. I contacted Icon & they replaced the entire jacket for a brand new one! I didn't even ask for that. I just asked for a liner repair. Can't beat that!

Icon jackets tend to have a more liberal fit than some other brands. Keep that in mind for sizing.

My buddies dad is a runs the parts dept at our local Honda shop, so I get everything through him for 50% off. I think I'll give the Icon jacket a try.

I wear the icon Contra, i love it, seems like good quality material, removable liner, protection on elbows shoulders and back. I wear a nice goody underneath and its keeping me warm in 40-50 degrees. Plus it looks real snazzy ;p
