Just got it in and quickly took it out for a ride. I must say, it doesn't get any better than this one. I'm 5'10 and 160lb and got the M. Surprisingly, it fits snugly AND is comfortable. A lot of room for movements with no restrictions. A little heavy but you can't expect your protection to be lightweight. Perfect for cool weather riding (I'm from Iowa) and curious to how it is in the hot weather when I remove the insulated liner. A little pricey but for quality and protection, this is a must!

Jacket Sizing Information. There are three variables to consider when sizing an ICON jacket. The first two are the chest and sleeve measurements, which are what your jacket size is based on. The third is the jacket fit type, which defines the "cut" of the jacket (Attack, Sport, or Relaxed). Instructions, sizing charts and jacket fit details can be found below.
Chest Measurement. While standing with your arms relaxed at your side, wrap a flexible tape measure around your chest at its largest point. The tape measure should go through your armpit and stay parallel with the floor while taking the measurement
Sleeve Measurement Instructions. While standing with your arms relaxed at your side, place one end of a flexible tape measure on your spine at the base of your neck. Measure over the top of your shoulder, down over the point of your elbow, and finish at the wrist bone.
