Aspida Icarus Jacket - Review
« on: June 21, 2018, 08:32:58 AM »
Aspida Icarus:

Price: ₹5,950/- on spartanprogear.com

I have been using the Aspida Icarus for about 1.5 years now.
Being sort of an ATGATT person, I have worn this jacket almost everyday that I have owned it.
Be it the office commute or a weekend ride, this jacket has been the one buddy protecting me.

Before I get into the Pros and Cons, I?d like to give my overall review.
This is quite a basic jacket for its price. However, having said that, it has held up very well over the time that I have been using it. The stitching and all the Velcro straps are still intact.
The jacket is definitely well ventilated and even in Bangalore?s Bumper to Bumper traffic, I don?t feel very hot in it. The rain liner is also very good quality. It is two layered with the plastic layer outside and a layer of mesh on the inside. This prevents the plastic from rubbing on your skin (which happens in a lot of jackets) and also adds a slight amount of thermal isolation for cool morning rides.
Overall, the jacket is very comfortable and has become like a second skin to me.

Pros:
Good build quality
Good ventilation
Good fit
Comfortable
CE Level 1 armour all around

Cons:
No reflective lining
No thermal liner

P.S. I have the Red and Black jacket, which is now discontinued
