...what build are you and what size do you wear. I tried one out today at the stealership and it was an XL and it seemed to fit me in the shoulders. I was shocked as I'm only 5'7" 150#. They didn't have any other sizes to try so I'm trying to figure out what size to order from New Enough. I'm guessing L since the XL was so close. Just seems odd since I wear a S in a Joe Rocket Mesh, though it is a bit small on me. Oh, and the stealership price was nearly $100 more without tax! Do people actually pay those prices? Crazy! Thanks for the help! :)

I know! I was unsure of what to get until I tried it on! Fell right in love. Now I can't wait to order one. It'll make a great birthday present from my old lady! Only she doesn't know it yet. LOL. She hates gettin' me stuff like this for presents. Says it's not sentimental or special or somethin' like that. No worries, I always win that argument! ;D Thanks.

I'm 5' 11" 140 lbs and wear a large. Sleeves and shoulders fit perfect, a little large around the waist/torso. But I'm a skinney (sex)er.

I have one. I lowside last year at about 25 mph and slid on my stomach/chest. Result: quite a bit of abrasion of the leather, and busted seams at both pockets and sleeve cuffs. Shitty performance for such a low speed crash, I'd hate to see what happens at 60 or 80 mph.

This jacket is priced as a high-end, premium jacket, and while the fit is nice and it looks great, in my opinion, there are better options for the money. Oh, and there's no zip to connect the jacket to pants.

IMO, Icon makes great looking crap.

I'm about 5'7" and 140 lbs and I'm wearing a small (38-40 on the label), while I'm not exactly huge I'm not that skinny either, you guys must like your gear baggy because I would be absolutely swimming in an L or XL. The S is snug with 2-3 layers underneath and the liner but it's still comfortable.

I'm 6'2" 145 and I am wearing a M, and I have plenty of room to fit a hoodie underneath. The length between the XL, L, and M is about the same,, but the shoulders fit great and the arms are long enough.

If you're gonna order it from NewEnough, don't worry about size, they have the best return policy.

I have long arms. But it fits perfect in the shoulders and arms. Nothing moves. It's the torso area that is big, but not enough that it affects the armor where it counts. I'm ordering a seperate back protector to wear under it though, the foam armoer iin the back is a joke.

Well at the last minute I changed my mind and went with the Alpinestar Spinner in black. Just liked the styling just a little bit better. Talked to a lady at New Enough and she assured me the quality of both was the same. Hope I made the right choice. Damn it was a close call. Luckily since New Enough has such a great return policy, I can change my mind after I get the Alpinestar if I want. Thanks for all the help everyone. :)
