Anyone had experience/seen an Icon Timax mesh jacket?

  1. Hi,

    these jackets come in normal textile, and mesh textile. I'm interested in the mesh one.

    I can't find anyone who stocks them in Brisbane for me to see one. Has anyone out there seen one in the flesh or own one? A couple of places down south seem to stock the normal textile one, but can't find anyone who has the mesh ones on the shelf.

    I wanted to know how they compared alongside other mesh jackets i.e. Dririder, Rjays etc in how cool they are in summer. They look like they may be a bit heavy and therefore a little hotter than the others, but photos can be deceiving.

    Optimum coolness in hot conditions, and visibility (love their colours) are my main concerns.
    Can anyone help me out?
  2. Personally I prefer the Dririder but only because the Timax is so much more expensive.

    Look them up in the road apparel, jackets section.
