I was seriously considering buying this vest in the mist color. After reading this review I am definitely buying it. I have (and love) my Joe Rocket Cleo 2.2 (white/silver to match bike), which is probably as cool as you can get for a full jacket, but the central Florida heat can make you feel sick quickly. I'll be using the Icon Stryker vest either over or under a long-sleeve cotton shirt. Thank you for mentioning riding jackets with armor only in the shoulders and elbows too. I'll consider those as well.

Not bad. Icon's getting better with the addition of d30 to the vest. Still I would like to see a little more coverage in the shoulder and kidney areas. Maybe Jen's version is actually better. Her's seems to have more coverage looking at the pictures. Plus you'd never catch me in anything pink! Good review. Thanks.

Wish I could see stuff like this modeled by a plus sized woman. Everything I see from jackets to chaps to armor is always modeled by small slim women. I can't see that vest fitting someone like me who has a double D chest ... *sigh* I don't think anyone makes gear for big girls... least you never see it advertised.

Thanks for your comment. I invite you to spend some time browsing our site as we have posted plenty of stories on gear that's sized for women your size. Take a look at the stories in our Apparel & Product Reviews section, in particular, a review of a textile riding suit by Alisa Clickenger (size 14-16) in October 2011; a review of a textile riding jacket by Tricia Szulewski, who has "D" chest posted in October also; and our Gear for Big Gals three part series that ran in March 2011.

We also have more reviews coming up by Tricia and some other riders that are more your size. We try to represent all sizes of riders on WRN.

Very nice thorough review Rachel. However, I look at your lower back and jeans and your comment about the "wind" bothering you there and wish you would consider armored pants with a zip to the jacket as well. Road rash on your back and having your jeans skinned off is not a pretty sight.
I do like the vest protection; never had a problem with a back protector, but I may be a little taller. I would be interested in Maria as a bigger person trying this item out and letting us know how it does fit and what changes would make it fit better.
