    I was just about ready to buy a Klim Latitude outfit and happen to come across this. Does anyone have any experience with Icon products? The price seems about the same, perhaps a little cheaper and the protection seems good and its waterproof which is great up here in the Pacific NW. Let me know if anyone has any thoughts. Thanks

    Buy the gear, and you can ride as well as the guys in the video. Guaranteed.

    Icon gear is pretty good quality. It's more fashion than function, but it functions pretty well. I've got a Strongarm jacket and the fit and finnish is good. I've also got some Super Duty pants, I've had both of them for 4-5 years been down a couple times in each and they've held up well. The pants took the worst and all that was was a couple scraps, one hole and the hip pocket torn a bit. Their helmets are pretty decent too. I've never worn high end gear so can't compare it to the real fancy stuff, but it's the best stuff I've ever had, well aside form the Klim jacket I bought second hand that is. The only thing that bugs me about those jackets is all the poseur boy patches pre-installed.
