Re: Opinion needed for ICON Hella Gixxer Girl Jacket
I have the Icon Suzuki Mech 3 Jacket. From looking at the descriptions I think the only difference between mine and the Gixxer Girl is just look.
I used to have a Joe Rocket, and my biggest complaint about that jacket is It wouldn't stay down over my hips. Not a big deal for summer, but made it very cold in winter.
I love my Icon jacket. Probably the best fitted jacket I have ever owned. I wear mine whenever I ride tho. The make of the jacket is long, so it will snug to your hips. Another plus to the jacket is it has a zipper protector so you won't scratch up that tank. Pads are removable.. however since it is textile, when you wash it you should not dry the jacket and immediately put the pads back in so it doesn't shrink.
Hope that answers some of your questions
