Joe Rocket Alter Ego 3.0 Jacket 4.7 5 86 86
Great All-Around Jacket I'm 5'11" and of average build and needed a large. I take a 17/35 dress shirt and 42 suit jacket. A medium was slightly too short in the sleeves and too tight in the shoulders. The features are great. I have found the fleece liner to be all but unnecessary for moderate temps. I rode with all the vents open on the jacket and the mesh panel exposed on the Alter Ego pants in 50 degree weather with just a t-shirt and shorts underneath. It is worth pointing out that I'm not a cold-blooded person. I can't say whether the shell is waterproof or not. Only wore it in a slight sprinkle. I didn't even close the vents. I can say that the water didn't bead up great so I would imagine that I would have eventually been wet in a sustained rain. As the video shows the armor is in the mesh layer. That thing flows air great. I stay pretty cool. The grey looks like chainmail which I find kind of cool. I put in the recommended Knox back protector which eventually goes in. It is smaller in surface area than the foam it replaces but is significantly more substantial. My only complain, which is minor, is that the sleeves are a bit tight to get over gauntlets if you put your gloves on after the jacket. April 14, 2014
Great style and good functionality This is my first real jacket so I don't have anything to compare it to but I do like it a lot. I mainly bought for the style but it seems to hold up to all the functionality claims. In terms of size I'm a tall skinny guy at about 6'1" 175lbs and about a 40ish inch chest. I tried a similar jacket on at a store and thought the large was just a bit roomier than motorcycle jackets are supposed to be so I ordered a medium. It fits pretty well though I do wish the jacket was just longer in the torso (though again I think that's how jackets are supposed to be). If you're looking for a gret looking textile that goes across multiple seasons, I would say look no further. April 12, 2014
Great four season jacket! Fit is true to size, I am 6' 1" 200 lbs and a large fit just right! Still had room to adjust in and fit just right! Very comfortable, and I like the different layer options, two jackets in one plus!!! Looks great!!! March 31, 2014
Good Jacket This jacket is great. It's not quite the 4 season jacket i was hoping for, as i still had to wear an under sweater when it was down in the 30's. The front vents could definitely stand to be bigger so they could double as pockets, but literally nothing will fit in them and they do not provide ventilation. The double jacket aspect is great. The summer jacket portion is highly ventilated. March 17, 2014
Great gift for husband I was so happy to have found this jacket for my husband - I feel comfortable with the protection it gives him. It's also pretty stylish-looking! March 17, 2014
Great idea, poor execution This is the jacket I wanted to go from carting about two jackets on long summer trips, down to one and a rain suit. The design and concept of this jacket is perfect and I can't believe it's taken this long for a manufacturer to produce a functional, all weather jacket. However, Joe Rocket decided to make an extra $2.50 (est.) per jacket and used the cheapest, malfunctioning zippers in existence. My main zipper tab fell off the first day! It stayed in my lap and I would reattach it (it fell off many times while riding). Then the third day it fell off and I lost it. I think I'll take the jacket to a outdoor gear repair shop and see what it would cost to have the main zippers replaced with proper YKK brand zippers; something that would have garnered this jacket a 5/5 rating.

CAN NOT BEAT IT! I purchased this jacket back in 2012 before i purchased my bike. I really did not know what I was getting myself into being new to ridding and new to riding in the Seattle area. I was reading a few of the reviews and people are talking about cheap? I have not had any issues. Not accusing anyone of not taking care of there stuff but if i am paying 200+ for anything I take care of the item so it can take care of me. In Seattle yes we get rain and for the record it rains more in Florida it did its job kept me dry. for warmth with the outer shell without the fleece liner kept me warm as low as 38 degrees. for heat the mesh is extremely cold for Seattle but it did its job to stay cool. I marked down for style and practicality. the armor included it is nice to have the protection but if take it for a spin my lack of storage i can't store the jacket and to wear it off the bike does not have the same cool factor. i will just call it what it is if your looking for the starter jacket that can cover all 4 season this is it look no further. but if your looking for that weekend warrior maybe wear it into the bar and not look as funny this jacket is not the one i will grab for a date night this is the jacket i will grab for those long weekend rides and you don't know what the weather will bring.... great jacket would recommend it to anyone. March 12, 2014
Good features, cheap quality. I'm mostly happy with this jacket. It has good features, fits well and looks cool. My major complaint is the cheap quality. Before reading reviews I noticed many people mention that parts of it ripped, but I didn't heed their warning. The first time I used the pocket, it ripped. I am wondering, if simply putting my hand in the pocket rips the seam, what is going to happen in an accident? My other major gripe is that it has no reflective material. It even has a good length of piping, of the type that is usually reflective on jackets, but it is matte black instead. The white stripes on the back and arms could also have easily been reflective, as well as the shoulder logos, but no such luck. I've mostly ridden in winter (in LA though, so not too cold here) and with the lining it's been warm enough. I've had to ride in the rain a few times and it has kept me dry. As with the overpants, the zippers are difficult to work with, but after a few weeks, I figured out the tricks needed to easily zip the jacket closed and the side pockets. The vent zippers are still a pain in the rear, but since I use those less often, it's not a problem. March 10, 2014

Dan C: Got the same jacket in hi viz yellow which I feel makes me more visible and safer on the road. I have a medium which has a generous cut. The sleeves are slightly long which is ok when reaching for my bars. The zipper gets sticky occasionally due to the way I pull it but it is mostly very smooth. I have only used it in warm weather so have not used the waterproof outer layer yet. It has decent ventilation but even on a very hot and muggy day my shirt was soaked w sweat. (Armor was installed).
I'm 5-7 180# 32" waist; 42" chest; 32-33 arms good luck.

Glen F: I'm 6'2", 250 lb, 34" waist, 50" chest, 35" sleeve and the XL is a decent fit for me, though I have no room for any extra weight. The sleeves are long enough, but the length of the jacket is shorter than I like, not a problem, just no overlap over the pants, making the waterproof shell less than ideal.

That said, the waterproof overshell is brilliant, I was riding a faired bike (Concours) in 50 degree weather with just the jacket and shell and was comfy. As the day warmed I rezippered to have the mesh zipped up inside the shell with the shell open at the front for extra air until I stopped to remove it completely. The high viz colors are really bright.

I've noticed two defects to far, but haven't called Revzilla yet for resolution, the face shield pocket has a small hole in it, and the snap on the shell retainer pulled out on the first day of use.

Larry C: I'm not in this size range, but the Joe Rocket sizing chart I saw online indicates Medium for chests 40-42 and Large for 42-44. Just based on that Large sounds best.

Another thing to consider: Somebody was thinking when they designed this jacket. With the vest liner, the mesh, and the outer shell, you can cover a wide range of conditions with just one jacket. I went a little more roomy with mine because I also wanted to have the option of wearing a sleeved fleece (just normal cold weather wear) under the jacket to extend the range just a little more.

Give Revzilla a call to see if they concur.

David Lee V: I am 6'4" 235 lbs, 48" chest, 38" waist and 37" sleeves. I purchased the XL Tall and it is a perfect fit for me. So I would have to say that Joe Rockets sizing is pretty well dead on. Looking at their charts, you should be good to go. Aug 19, 2013

Daniel B: I'm not sure if they are the only two.. I have the alter ego for about a year now and absolutely love all of the different features it has... being able to break down to the mesh in Louisiana is a must and I like the fact I can still have the armor. It really offers full season riding for me. With being able to put on the outer layer. Plenty of pocket space to carry everything thing you need.. Dec 25, 2013

A shopper asked: Is there a built in storage pocket for the outer waterproof layer. How small does the xl compact down to? May 13, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
zanfar: The outer layer has a pretty ingenious built-in storage pocket for itself. It sounds weird typing it, but it flips inside-out into a pocket in the jacket's back. The pocket itself is large enough for the outer layer and the insulating vest.

When rolled up, the outer layer/vest form an (uncompressed) cylinder 10" in diameter and 18" long. If you used a compression sack, or something similar, I'm betting you could compress about 30% of that. The pocket also has an elastic buckled strap you can use to secure the package to a frame--although it seems a bit flimsy for me to trust in the wind. I have some fairly small saddlebags, and I'm pretty sure I could shove it into one of them, however, at this point (with 85 F weather) it has stayed at home while I ride with just the mesh armor piece.

The outer layer is made of some very, very rugged cordura, and so is a bit stiff, bulky, and heavy.

RevZilla: The outer shell on the Joe Rocket Alter Ego 3.0 Jacket folds into a pocket located on the inner backside of the jacket. The pocket measures about 13" x11" on a size MD, and should not be much larger on the XL. The jacket also comes with instructions as to how to fold the shell into the pocket. Best part is, it also has carrying straps! May 22, 2013
