Icon Hooligan Jersey Jacket Review
April 3, 2013 - San Diego, CA
I went to the Parts Unlimited 2013 West Regional Showcase last week to view the newest motorcycle gear and parts and was not disappointed, especially when it came to what Icon has for their new motorcycle gear. They showed off the new Icon Hooligan Jersey Jacket. Check out the video of it at the showcase when we first got our hands on it as well as our Icon Hooligan Jersey Jacket Review below.
What really makes the Icon Hooligan Jersey Jacket unique is its look. A mixture of an off-road motorcycle jersey and a street motorcycle jacket, it's unlike most street motorcycle jackets. Made of a durable fighter mesh, this is a lightweight and stylish motorcycle jacket that is perfect for summer riding. Plus it has zip off sleeves for even more airflow, all of which is probably why Julien Welsch chose to wear it during a video where he rode a sportbike in the dunes of the Moroccan Desert:
Still, our Icon Hooligan Jersey Jacket review found no lack of armor and protection that any rider should require when street riding. With heavyweight ballistic impact panels on areas that might get hit the most as well as Icon field armor that is CE rated in the elbows and shoulders as well as a field armor back pad that cal all be removed in case you want to beef it up with extra protection.
This motorcycle jacket comes in some pretty cool color schemes, my favorite being the Black and grey with high vis green accents. It's subtle while still offering the additional visibility with the vibrant green logos. The Icon Hooligan Jersey Jacket also comes in a simple black and grey, a red, white and blue as well as a black, white and red.
All in all, the Icon Hooligan Jersey Jacket review left me pretty impressed with how unique it is and how amazing it will be as a warm weather jacket. I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be one of the most popular motorcycle jackets this season. Plus, with a price tag of about $150, it is also one of the most affordable motorcycle jackets on the market right now, while still having the promise Icon quality and protection.
