Default My review on Icon's Victory Death or Glory motorcycle jacket

Had a chance to review Icon's Victory Death or Glory all leather jacket and thought I'd share my investigation with you guys.

I was first intrigued by the jaw-dropping looks this jacket has ... then curious as to why the jaw dropping price tag that comes along with it.

The all leather hide, CE armor protection, and padded back protector ensure that this jacket will protect you against both impact and abrasion in the unfortunate event of a crash.

For an all-leather jacket it does exceptionally well in keeping the rider cool (temperature as well as looks). The exhaust vents in the back of the jacket do a great job of allowing hot air to exit the jacket preventing 'back sweat'.

The best part about this jacket - you will notice when you first look at it. It's like the ubber sexy hottie walking down the sandy beach towards you - you can't but help stare. This jacket is probably the most intensely styled motorcycle jacket I've ever seen.

After giving this jacket an in-depth examination I can tell you this:

What the jacket does offer the rider is worth every penny, however, what it offers may not necessarily appeal to the majority of riders.

Icon Victory or Death Leather Motorcycle Jacket" It just rolls off the tongue, doesn't it?

"Hey guys, check out my new Icon Victory or Death Leather Motorcycle Jacket. It goes great with my Icon Mess With Me and I'll Kill You or Die Trying Rubber and Plastic Boots, don't you think?

PS: the jacket just screams: "I have no penis."

I have two Icon jackets (one leather and one mesh), but I would never buy this one. The skull just looks stupid. Love my yellow Icon Motorhead, though.

Yes, I have to agree, we haven't seen style like this since 1988!
