Ian Feather has discussed his reasons for switching from an icon font to SVG, and CSS Tricks have outlined some considerations when choosing between an icon font system or SVG. Both clearly favouring SVG. As a counter-argument, Pictonic have said that icon fonts are 10% faster than SVG. These are just things you should consider before you do use icon fonts.

To ensure that your icons always load properly and have reliable fallbacks for browsers that don’t support @fontface, you should take a look at the guidelines set-out by the Filament Group, Bulletproof Accessible Icon Fonts.
