Joe Rocket Atomic 4.0 Jacket 4.6 5 127 127
Warm, comfy, quality I bought this as a 3-season jacket to wear in the winter as it started to get cold in Maryland. Initially, I had to take the insulating liner out because it was too warm, but as the temperatures dropped I put it back in to stay toasty. It's kept me (my torso and arms, at least) warm on 40-minute rides in 30* weather. Additionally, it's comfortable, looks good (goes great with my jet black FZ6), and seems to be very durable -- I'm feel very protected while riding in it. I wanted some bonus visibility so I got the silver stripes on the back, but if you want to be even safer you can go for the neon yellow. Overall, a great jacket and I plan on wearing it into the summer and for years to come. January 15, 2015
Complete package The style of this jacket brought me to it. The features and comfort hooked me. The details make all the difference. Like the way the liner cuffs fasten with Velcro so when you go to pull the jacket off, the sleeves don't come with it. The venting works great and the multiple options make adjusting the cooling easy. The belt loops are a nice touch. I got the XL because I'm going to use it primarily in cooler weather with a sweatshirt underneath. If it's a three season jacket, I'll wear it for two of them. Best value in a jacket I've ever seen. January 12, 2015
Bang for buck. This jacket fit me a little larger then i thought. I am 6' 220lbs. I got this in a xxl. Which fits large and bunches up when I ride. But I wanted it that way so I can layer up in the winter. One thing I do like about this jacket is the armor. Stay in place and doesn't move around. Ventilation with all the vents open is pretty good. You can snake air up the sleeve if you have short gloves. I don't like to wear this jacket when its over 80F in town. Gets very warm even with vents open. I have warn this jacket in short trips in 36F temperature. With the liner in and a windbreaker underneath. The front jacket have two zippers. I can feel air seep through when its cold. So its on thing I don't like about it. Which is the reason I wear a windbreaker under it. Bang for buck is great. I thought have ordered an xl and would have fit just fine with the liner and windbreaker. Over would buy again in a smaller size. January 2, 2015
Good, not great, jacket Overall it's about what you'd expect for the price. Decent warm jacket with vents closed. Definitely need another base layer if you're riding in sub-40 temps. Good protection on elbows and shoulders, but back def needs upgrading if this will be your primary jacket. Finally, I'd say this is more water resistant than waterproof...def no where near the level of Goretex. It fits well, true to size chart, and looks good. Overall decent value for the price, but don't expect the same level of finish as higher end jackets. December 28, 2014
Good Jacket First, Sizing: 6'3" 225lbs So the jacket is great if your looking for a warm/cool weather jacket. It's got good (not great) ventilation and will deff keep your core warm while riding in cold conditions.It's got very good malliable armor to allow for easy of moving around in it when your off the bike and it doesn't feel cumbersome to have on all the time. So I'd say it's Average-Above average leaning more towards above average. There is one MAJOR complaint I had about it though. When checking your blind spot I noticed my neck chaffing on the collar and it was very annoying. This was the only major issue I had with the jacket and not a deal breaker...just a set back. December 13, 2014
Pros and Cons Here are the Pros to this jacket: It is a warm jacket with the vents closed and the liner in. Flows a very nice amount of air at speed with all venting open for warmer days. Nice fit . Love that the liner is mesh. Cons: NOT WATERPROOF. I had the opportunity to test the jacket in some heavy rain and it failed as a whole. My chest and back were dry but my arms were totally soaked. Before my second venture into the rain with this jacket I made sure all zippers were completely sealed and this made no difference. The water came right in. I do not recommend this product as it currently sits. If Joe Rocket updates the waterproofing this would be a great jacket. December 2, 2014
Not Waterproof I wanted a waterproof jacket. This isn't it. My arms were totally wet on a 45 minute ride to work in the rain. Bummed, I'm stuck with another leaky jacket. If you don't need it to be waterproof, looks good for the price. Does run big. I ordered a size smaller and it fits. I'm 5'10", 150lbs. Ordered a small. December 1, 2014
High quality, conspicuous, good air flow This jacket has served me well for 2+ years now. Air flow is great, weather (rain) resistance is superb and it is very warm when using the zip out liner when riding in colder weather. Value for the dollar, you cannot beat Joe Rocket. This jacket is the best of both breeds and superior construction for the price. I paired this jacket with the Icon Stealth Pursuit and the Shoei Quest helmet. Perfect combo and affordable!

S P: Great style, fit, features and air-flow options. Nice convenience features like fit adjusters, zipper garages, full sleeve liner, outside armor access. Dec 21, 2014
Shanna S: 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. Dec 7, 2014

Ryan D: Great protection, comfortable fit, quality feel, decent price. May 27, 2014
Dan T: Protective, waterproof, three season functionality, and a reasonable price made me choose this the JRA 4.0. Venting works great as long as it doesn't get over 95 degrees. Love the jacket, only wish that it came with a CE rated back protector. May 20, 2014
Ben-Jammin: The reviews were great, and it has the features I want. May 19, 2014
Dustin A: Joe Rocket apparell is very reasonably priced which is why I got it. Its very hard for an unseasoned biker to justify spending a few hundred dollars on a jacket when they've never had experience with any. Loved the all black style that comes with it as well as the price. Im not real sure how much happier I could be with a riding jacket that is worth a lot more. Maybe one day, but right now I have no complaints. May 8, 2014

Gustavo O: a very good jacket, fits well and is waterproof. Dec 1, 2013
Greg M: Great price, look and ventability(if that is even a word) Dec 1, 2013
Gregg S: I've worn this jacket before. I recently gained size in my arms and now need a larger size. The item is stellar in quality, especially considering the price. I highly recommend it. Far more comfortable to a comparable jacket from Alpinestars. EXCELLENT in rain, and quite warm. Nov 22, 2013
PHILLIP B: have very large sholders and this fits fine Nov 4, 2013
Dan P: I wanted a cheap jacket that could do multiple seasons, since I live up north. Ventilation is good, armor is good (except the back protector, I swapped it with the Forcefield Backpad Insert Pro), and water protection.. well.. not good. In moderate rain you're probably fine, but when it's really coming down, water will find its way through that collar, and your shoulders and chest will get pretty soaked.

It's still good. Can't beat the price, and it fits a slim frame pretty well.
Oct 24, 2013
Ryan S: Recommended by a close friend for all-season riding for Southern California. I wanted a jacket that I could wear during both the summer and winter months without having to swap out a whole lot but still be able to ride at comfortably warm temperatures. Oct 22, 2013
blake g: the price was great and its waterproof. Wanting to get an RSD jacket, but will have to wait a few months for the budget to allow it Oct 2, 2013
Mike P: Love the jacket, except I do wish I had ordered the black on black(I got red and black). It's pretty useless for our rain, but that's ok Sep 25, 2013
Joe A: Cold weather riding Sep 25, 2013
Dustin A: Price is right up my alley at the moment, and for a first jacket I really didn't want to get something with a lack of good reviews or unreviewed at best! Thanks! Sep 22, 2013
Mike C: Good reviews, good price. Sep 10, 2013
Phillip T: This is an affordable, multi-season jacket with plenty of vents for warmer days, as well as a liner for cooler rides. Aug 19, 2013
John P: Watched video on jacket, really likes hi viz option. Jacket fits great and very comfortable. Aug 17, 2013
A shopper asked: 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

Xuan X: Not sure what the quantity measure for those high visibility requirements. But this jacket with colors other than all black can provide pretty good contrast. And you could tell from distance that it is a rider (the exact number for the distance depends on variant conditions, e.g. cloud cover, day or night time, hilly curvy or flat straight, etc.).

If you want a highly distinguishable vest, there are many high visibility vest out there. And those may or may not have armor with them. In short, jackets and vests serves for different purposes in general.

Jesse L: 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. Oct 19, 2014

Robert G asked: 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

BLAINE B: 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. Feb 28, 2014

Jonathan F: 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. Aug 31, 2012

A shopper asked: Is this available in the tall sizes? I'm thinking the large in regular sizes would be too short in the sleeves but about right everywhere else. The xl would be good in the sleeve but too big everywhere else. The tall large seems just right for me. I'm 6'3" 210lbs, 35" sleeve, 40" chest. I'm tall and lanky Lol. Any help would be appreciated.

RevZilla: 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. Apr 17, 2013

RevZilla: The official Joe Rocket CE Back Protector, the Knox TP2 Advance X, the Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro (Medium/Type B), and the Klim D3O Viper T5 Pro Back Protector will fit into the back protection pocket of the Joe Rocket Atomic 4.0 Jacket. It is possible to fit a SAS-TEC Back Protector (SC-1/12) if you trim the top. Please note that trimming SAS-TEC back protector armor voids its warranty.

The OE Joe Rocket back pad is approximately 13.25 inches at its widest point and has a height of approximately 18.0 inches.
