The soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines I see riding around here mostly wear the Icon "flame" gear with a "Mil-Spec" vest. Cruisers or sportbikes, the look seems to be the same.

Early in my riding years I used to wear the black combat pants cause I could wear therals & sweats under them, but was never big on camo. Between finally getting a pair of chaps and being able to fill the big pants without the layers, I don't anymore.

I have these in black; very comfy, super heavy duty fabric. Should last for years.
Ride Icon

When the refund comes I am going to order one of these:
Ride Icon

Same style and features of the $700 Arai, but with the "Rubatone" finish that even I can't scratch up. At half the price. Bawgins bawgins bawgins.

My Icon jackets are yellow. I want to be seen when I'm on the bike, so camo would defeat that purpose. I'm all for army surplus gear, though. Those army surplus jackets are perfect to wear when going fishing!

"My Icon jackets are yellow. I want to be seen when I'm on the bike, ...."

That will be tough when the guy that will run your ass over was texting his girlfriend as he was using you for traction. The biggest problem with drivers today is not paying attention. No color you will wear will ever help that.

Perfect! Because, really, who wants to be seen by traffic when you're riding your motorcycle? This gives car drivers additional fuel to the "I didn't see him" argument. "I mean, look at him, he was wearing camo!"
