Got it where it counts...
Bought this jacket because I couldn't afford leather and this one was within my budget and fit my aesthetic tastes. Jacket included a thermal liner which was very nice and comfortable. Worked very well at keeping me warm, rode with it in temps as low as high 40's and low 50's and I was comfortable. Vents on the chest and bicep areas gave a decent bit of flow but I never rode it in temps above the mid 80's. I honestly feel that I'd probably be begging for a mesh jacket had I been wearing it all summer long. On the other hand, it's waterproof (which I never tested anyway) so it's a trade-off for the lack of flow. The zippers on the jacket were not of the best quality. The first one came out of the box with a busted zipper, the replacement had issues with the "teeth" separating some times when I'd zip it up. The thermal liner went in via a zipper than up one side, across the shoulder/neck area, and back down to the other side. Installation was cumbersome, routinely the zipper would catch on some wrinkled, bunched up fabric and I'd have to work to back up the zipper to get it unstuck.

The fit was good and the jacket itself was comfortable and never felt too bulky even with the thermal liner included. It came with your typical foam backpad which was actually thicker than I had expected. It was stiff though but there was enough flexibility that it would conform to my back a bit when tucking. Jacket included removable CE rated armor in the shoulders and elbows. Jacket also had a couple of interior pockets as well; also had belt loops which I used when I took a quick ride with jeans on. Why Joe Rocket didn't make the large white stripes out of reflective material is beyond me, the only reflective material is a small pipe along the rear of the jacket between the shoulder blades, the jacket could've benefited from a bit more reflective parts.

I did have the unfortunate opportunity to field test the jacket in a low-side at around 35-40mph. The armor did its job and held up fine with some scuffs. I must add though, I was only on pavement for about a half second before sliding into a ditch, and even then the only thing to hit the pavement was my hand. I seriously doubt the jacket would've held up as well had I been on asphalt for the duration of my off-bike tumble. The front of the jacket tore through in multiple places and this was just with sliding/tumbling through grass. The tears are on the right side, just next to the pocket zipper, and on the left side closer to the main zipper. The end result is that where the non-impact areas were torn, I was left with zero functional pockets. They'd been torn through so that none of them could hold anything. (hard to see in the included photo, but the tears are there) The most important thing was that it protected me when I needed it, but the little annoyances along with knowing how easily it tore through really put me off with this jacket to the point I couldn't recommend it. I would definitely say to save up a bit more money and get a better jacket.

Saved my skin (literally)
I decided to go ahead and try out the Joe Rocket line after wearing other brand leathers for a few years. The Atomic is very comfortable and breathes well with both vents in front/back open. After all of the snow melted in the Northern VA area I decided it was time to start riding again. Unfortunately there is still alot of salt and sand still on the ground. I took a spill rounding a turn about 40 mph or so and thought I was going to be shreaded up after sliding around 20+ yds. After finally standing up to check out the damage and seeing how bad of a scrub I was going to be getting at the hospital I noticed that I had no pain in my shoulders elbows or arms where most of the impact occured. The outter part of the jacket down to the hard padding is pretty shreaded up but not a scratch on my upper body. (AlpineStar SP-8 gloves only ripped down to plastic nuckles and HJC helmet scuffed bad) had to get 14 stiches in my knee but my whole upper body that did most of the bouncing and slidding was perfectly okay. I figured I would feel pain a few days or week later, but nothing. I will recommend this jacket to everyone and I am on here about to purchase another.

Great Jacket
Great jacket, ordered a size large, i am 6'2, 205 lbs, with avout a 45" chest, and it fits perfectly.
keeps me warm, the removable liner is an awesome feature. On hot days, with the vents open and on the move, it's great, gets a little hot when you're stopped though.

Would recommend this jacket in a heartbeat.

Awesome First Jacket
I bought this jacket to wear in the La heat. Above 30 mph its almost as cool as a flannel shirt with the liner out. The venting is awesome and works better than expected. I can use all the zippers except the inside one with gloves on. I got the hi vis yellow and its extremely bright, I feel safer with this jacket on. I would buy again. I'm 6,2; 200 lbs, I got an XL and think with the liner in, I might be able to get a tight fleece on unde the jacket extending it to a 3.5 season jacket.

High quality jacket at a great price
I commute to work everyday on my motorcycle. I leave early in the morning and return late at night. It is often cold, dark and rainy. This jacket has protected me from the elements, while making me more visible to other drivers. The armored padding in the elbows, shoulders and back make me feel much safer.

Good jacket for the price
I've been wearing this jacket for 2 weeks now. I'm 5'11, 225lbs and a XL fits perfect. Its been in the low 50s out here in Indianapolis and it has kept me warm. I haven't worn the jacket in anything over 60 degree weather. I got rained on and I stayed dried. You get a lot of jacket for the price. I would definitely recommend this jacket.

Top quality at affordable price.
I'm a new rider, so I don't have much else to compare this to; but I have tried on a lot of different jackets -- manufacturers, materials, purpose, etc.

I still can't believe this jacket goes for about $150. It's easily a $200+ jacket. It has removable shoulder, elbow, and back armor; a weather-flap and zipper; an excellent, full-sleeve zip-out liner; button loops for your belt; zippered sleeves; adjusting forearms; a soft collar with button; and vents in the upper arms, chest, and back.

With the liner out, I have ridden with this jacket in temperatures between 55-F and 95-F. At 55-F, it is comfortable with a long-sleeve shirt and all vents closed up. If I had a short-sleeve shirt below 60, I'd probably want to use the liner. Combine long sleeves with the liner, and this will be good down to 40 or perhaps below.

Above 70, it can help to have various vents open. Above 90, the vents are a must for me, but you'll still know you have a jacket on. If there was mesh on the underside of the arms and on the sides and/or front, this would be a full summer-friendly jacket. Of course, then it might not be so fall-friendly.

Definitely open the back vents if you open any other vent; otherwise, the airflow will lift the jacket some. I also use the loops to go around my belt and that helps keep it from lifting.

This jacket might be my most satisfactory purchase yet.

Excellent for the money
This was my first motorcycle jacket. Now I have a few others including a $450 Rev'It jacket and I still think this jacket is an excellent value for the money. Everything is going to feel a little cheap, like the crunchy fabric, zippers, liner, but come on, look at the price! Here is what it does have that I like: Comfortable armor that looks effective, beefiest stock back pad I've seen (the back pad that comes on better jackets like Rev'It is often a joke piece of thin foam, requiring a costly upgrade. Not this one), subdued looks (I have the Grey), cuff adjuster and zipper which stays put and isn't uncomfortable to the skin, excellent venting which includes, front, arm and rear vents. Front vents button to each-other and create air scoops, a very nice feature that jackets triple the Atomic's price could benefit from! Liner keeps you relatively warm and is easily removable, good range of adjustment in the waist and arms, storm flap underneath front zipper to keep rain and wind out, four loops to secure jacket to pants, water resistant front pockets and an inner pocket for sunglasses, fit is descent and comfortable in riding position. Once again, good value. If you're willing to spend more, look at Rev'It, because there is a world of difference in fit and quality, but you pay for it.

Wonderfull Jacket
I go to work at 0430 in the morning. I was worried that the jacket and liner wouldn't keep me warm. I wear a tee shirt under the jacket and stay plenty warm.

The workmanship is excellent and the price is awesome for a jacket of this caliber.

I would buy this jacket again.
January 24, 2011
Amazing Product
I definitely love this product. I'm big on safety and this delivers really well in the shoulders and elbows as well as in the back. Material feels very well put together and very sturdy. For the wind resistance and comfort it does very well. Going 60 down the highway I can't feel any air getting through until I open up the vents and then it vents a good amount of air. Looks very nice and fits very true to the sizing measurements. Reflective material isn't the greatest on the back of the jacket but it still gets the job done. Really great overall price for this quality jacket, would purchase again in a heartbeat.

i own a Joe Rocket Jacket for summer (textile kevlar mesh w/ removable liner) and love it. But, even with the liner in as the temp drops its not enough at speeds above 40mph. I need a jacket that's fall/spring and a bit of winter - this jacket will serve that purpose, But why Joe Rocket? I love the JR jacket I have and have had it for 5 years now and its still my go to jacket. So why buy an unknown jacket when Rocket is not only loved (given 5 starts) by others but by me too.

I have an older one that saved my skin in a recent accident and decided to replace it with the same thing. It worked well, armor saved my bones and the jacket only had a small hole after about 10 feet of sliding on the asphalt. Passing that jacket to my sons now that it is proven, they had been riding without armor.

I chose this jacket because it's a textile jacket with shoulder, elbow and upgradable spine protection. I didn't choose just a mesh jacket because I wanted more road rash protection than mesh can offer. I didn't choose a leather jacket because of the weight and flexibility in the fit.

gordon s on Jun 18, 2016
Hi, I am interested in purchasing this particular jacket but was wondering if it meets any one of the following standards due to licensing restrictions here in Australia.

AS/NZS 4602.1:2011 High visibility garments
ISO20471 or EN20471 High visibility - Test methods and requirements
ANSI/ISEA 207-2011 - American National Standard for High-Visibility Public Safety Vests
ANSI/ISEA 107-2010 - American National Standard for High-Visibility Safety Apparel and Headwear.

If it doesn't, could you recommend me a few similar jackets like this one that do?

Thank you

Cheers
A shopper on Oct 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I like the gear, but not as visible as could be. I tend to tone down, but would get brighter next time. One issue I warn against, is WASH ALL GEAR before wearing in HOT water. I got heavy metal poisioning after wearing new gear on a 6 day 2200 mile trip.
I am wondering if this jacket is available in the tall sizes? I am 6'3" 210lbs, 35" sleeve, 40" chest, 34"+ waist. Tall and lanky. The regular large I would think would be to short in the skene but good everywhere else while the xlarge would be good in the sleeve but too big everywhere else. But the larger in the task size seems perfect for me. Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

Thanks
Robert G on Feb 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This jacket in the "xl" sizes is for tall and fat people. I believe they call it the "American" cut. You are almost there with the tall but not nearly fat enough. I found it by goggling "riding gear for tall fat guys". It came up in many post across many forums. I am 6'4" with a 37 sleeve and was 390lbs when I bought this jacket. The 5xl fit loose and the sleves were a tad long. I have since lost 50lbs and it is no longer usable. Sleeves are long and its huge in the mid section. Flaps like a flag in a hurricane at speed. Its a great jacket though and I plan on getting another one when I settle ant my bottom weight.
I like the look of the all-black jacket, but the reflective-looking white stripes on the others aren't white on this one.

BEST ANSWER: The vertical stripes (white on the colors, grey on the high-viz) are purely cosmetic and non-reflective. The only reflective surface on any of the Atomic 4.0 jackets is the horizontal piping on the upper back across the shoulder blades.
Would this be a good jacket for a cruiser? Have a shadow and need a new jacket. Thanks

BEST ANSWER: I would say, it is more a style/look preference. Has had it for almost 2 years and rode it both on my Virago and Ninja. it looks and feels same good - comfortable and secure. However, it is the second jacket I have ever had so it is still possible there are better jackets for your purpose :)
Hello.. I am 5'9" 50" waist, 60" chest. What size jacket do you recommend? Do you recommend this one? I ride a suzuki vstrom 650. Thanks for your help. Will purchase what you guys most recommend. Looking for a 3 season or 4 season jacket.
Again thanks.

BEST ANSWER: This jacket is great. The styling can be a bit bold – you may find you prefer something that doesn't scream its brand name when you wear it.

It's definitely a 3 season jacket; depending on where you live and what your winters are like, it may be a 4 season one as well. I'm in Chicago, so I don't really have a fourth season – the bike is put up between November and March.

With the liner out and zippers open, this jacket really breathes. I've ridden it in 90+ weather with a full face helmet and kevlar jeans. Frankly, your only hot when you're sitting still at a light.

With the liner in, or a sweater under it, and all zippers closed, it is nice and cozy. I have ridden as low as 40s, which quickly gets frigid at 60 miles per hour. My torso is never the cold part of my body – usually thighs and fingertips.

Other things I like are the button loops for attaching to your belt; so you don't have to have matching pants to make a connection. The collar is very comfortable and the armor is light, but rigid.

The few things I don't care for are the bold branding and the rigid armor. I eventually got tired of the armor and pre-curved elbows. I don't want to look like someone who's about to ride a motorcycle even though that's exactly what I'm doing.

I hope that helps!

Are the stripes reflective?
A shopper on Feb 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the stripes on this jacket are reflective.
Just curious if it would help any or not, I live in North Idaho and showers spring up suddenly here.

BEST ANSWER: you don't really need to. this jacket has plenty of waterproofing as is, and the collar should be high enough to keep water out of your neckline. i wouldn't bother with taping/spraying anything.
Do you know when the Atomic 5.0 Jacket will be available? Thanks.

BEST ANSWER: NO
Would tis be a good jacket for a cruiser? I have a shadow and I'm looking for a new jacket.
A shopper on Jun 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I think it would be fine. The jacket fits nice but can get warm when not moving. Also the internal buckles in the front have caused me discomfort if I don't adjust the jacket, but again it should be fine for a cruiser as I am riding a classic standard style bike.
Hi there,
Just wondering what pants would connect to this jacket? Ideally looking for pants around the same price.
Cheers

BEST ANSWER: Any pants that use a belt. This jacket does not have a zipper to attach to pants as other might. It has four belt loops with snaps to attach to pants.
