Joe Rocket Ballistic Revolution Jacket 4.6 5 42 42
Love this Jacket! This jacket was my first riding jacket I have ever bought and I've had it for almost a year. The moment I received this jacket I fell in love in terms of looks. It definitely has a classy yet sporty look to it. For me, it was a size larger as I wear mediums but purchased this jacket in a size small. Fits snug with the inner liner and perfect removing it. It's great for central California winters (dry 30-60 degrees) and holds true for being waterproof in light rainy days (haven't been caught in hard rain yet.) It's not ideal for hot days, however, but can still be used below 90 degrees if the zipper vents are used. It is a jacket that I feel pretty safe in but I suggest investing in a CE back protector to complete the set. Overall great product and I recommend! November 10, 2015
Great Jacket! I could not be happier! When considering price, style, comfort and protection this jacket nails it! It is good looking, protective, comfortable and very well made. I find it a bit warm on hot days, (temps above 78 degrees) but other that that I have zero complaints. It offers adjust-ability, and is great in the rain, even heavy downpours were no problem. November 10, 2015
Great 3 Season Jacket I have had this jacket for about 4 months now and put about 3500 miles on it. I'm 5'8" and 170lbs, the Medium fits perfectly. I have had the zip out lining out since day one and find the temps very comfortable with one or two layers underneath in all but 80 degrees and up. I rode this weekend in 45 degree temps here in Newport, RI and was fine, but I will be zipping in the liner for the next ride. I plan on using this up until the first snow. Air Flow is not quite what I would like, but I think this is more limited because of my large touring screen on my GS than anything else. I chose the Hi-Viz and friends have told me it stands out nicely. Overall I am very happy and would not hesitate to purchase it again. Great product and great service from RevZilla! October 19, 2015
Tough as nails; priced right. This is a decent jacket, especially for the price. I'll start by saying its plenty warm; 50 degrees is not a problem for this jacket, and anything above 70 degs you'll definitely want to remove the inner liner. I wore it yesterday in 75 degs, no liner, vents open, with a t-shirt underneath, and I think it would get uncomfortable in any higher temps. The trade-off, of course, it that it feels bullet proof. Its a good looking jacket; easily adjustable. I like the doubled-over velcro front pockets and zip-pocket on the inside back. Others have commented on the neck closure velcro being too short/snug, and I'll agree. The sleeves, especially with the liner in, border on the ' almost too snug' side. So if you spend a lot of time with barbells, this probably won't be the best jacket for you. The jacket tapers a bit in the waist, and will best fit a rider with a slim-to-athletic build. If you carry your spare-tire above your belt, this won't be the best jacket for you. I use this jacket for daily commuting, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a decently priced and great-looking jacket that doesn't care if it gets beat and abused. FIT: I'm 5'8", 160 lbs, average built and the medium fits well. October 12, 2015
Another great buy from Revzilla Lets start by asking when did Revzilla move into my backyard? Ordered on Monday, got the shipped email Tuesday AM, home from work Tuesday PM and the box is waiting on my porch! Pulled this out of the box, put it on and thought I'd gotten the wrong size as it was real snug at the waistline. Seems like some joker had cinched the adjustments all the way down. Once readjusted the coat fit perfectly. Ordered an XL due to chest size and would suggest if you are close to top end of one size go bigger. Big plus for me is the length of the sleeves and the zipper opening for them. I prefer sleeves over gloves instead of gauntlet style gloves, just for comfort. Coat is long enough I can sit on the back to keep wind/weather creeping up from behind. Materials looks bullet proof, armor in the right places, the two way zipper is helpful and the collar is good and soft. Outside pockets look like they should be pretty much water proof, or resistant at least, not very big though. The liner feels kind of odd but doesn't add a great deal of bulk. Truth be told this one will probably be worn without the liner, over a fleece so I don't have to carry another lightweight jacket for non-riding time. First use was the short commute to work, temp about 42 degrees, no problems. Warm and comfortable, no wind up the sleeves or back either. Hands got cold, wearing summer gloves duh. Ride home about 65 degrees, ok when moving but not so much while at lights etc. Think this will be a great fall/spring coat, don't ride in the hard winter months up here too much snow. October 8, 2015
Well rounded great jacket. It's a killer jacket, the only thing I could possibly say about it is that over 80 degrees it gets hot. I would say it's a great 3/4 season jacket, but summer in the city with all the stop and go it's a little hotter than I would prefer without airflow. October 5, 2015
Goovy Jacket I bought this jacket after watching the reviews on Revzilla. I like the stylish looks and was amazed at how well it fit me. Pros: Fit is right on using the sizing chart for a 6' 0" 220lb male. Styling is great, love the look. Its completely waterproof. I wore it to my motorcycle safety class during a heavy rain and was dry as can be underneath. Comes with a cooler weather liner that is removable. Lots of pockets and snaps. Its a full size jacket will cover your waist some. Does its job at not allowing wind through. Cons: Rain liner is not removable. Vents open to the liner, not the body. I wear it during the summer now but, will be buying a Summer Jacket as well because it doesn't vent to the body. Spine armor is not CE rated. Overall: Awesome jacket for the buck. Highly recommend it. August 31, 2015
Perfect This was exactly what I wanted in a jacket. Has everything I want and more. It's not as warm as I want but riding with the liner in 50 and above at thruway speed is nice an warm. I bought a XL and I'm a 46 in chest. Should of bought a L for a better fit. But no complaints other then to many pockets. I have so much junk in the pockets I have to clean them out once a week. But all round great jacket July 6, 2015

vincent b: because here in virginia beach the weather can go from sunny to a downpour in a moments notice also it can start raining whenever also. i choose this jacket for the many things and seasons i can get through with this jacket and it makes more sense to buy something i can use year round versus having multiple jackets. looks good and i like storage pockets cause i do listen to music while riding as well as carry other things on my that i would rather have in a jacket pocket versus a pants pocket.

Andrew W: form and function plus it looks bad ass! Sep 24, 2013
Daniel R asked: How warm of weather would you wear it up to? I currently live in the northeast but moving to the northwest soon in a month or so. Where I'm moving to gets low 80s summers. Would you say this jacket has enough vents to keep me cool in low to mid 80s? I don't really want a mesh as I believe that would be too much ventilation but Im having difficulty finding a textile jacket that can be worn in the mid 80s Jun 2, 2015

Chris J: Yes, go for this jacket. I do tons of research on whatever I buy (type A that way), since I like quality but money can be a factor, so I'm pretty picky when it comes to criteria. I'd rather have less things, but quality items, rather than a whole wardrobe of riding gear for each month of the year.

This jacket not only looks awesome, but it fits really well too (comfortable, yet form-fitting enough that it doesn't make you feel like the Michelin man). The inner liner is great - if you pull it out, you can wear it in much warmer weather comfortably. If it gets chilly, use the liner and it helps a ton.

I live in the SouthEast, and have had this jacket since October. I still have my Joe Rocket mesh jacket from before, but I hardly ever wear it unless it's 90-95+ out. This jacket does have venting, but if you close it all up, it's super wind and rain-proof. My mesh jacket, in any dribble of rain whatsoever, soaks my shirt completely.

The sleeves and waist are a nice length; feels like would offer a lot better protection in a crash. The neck is super nice in colder weather too; the lower necklines on mesh jackets can be a pin.

It's a pretty aggressive looking jacket for what it is. I went for the high-vis; it's not quite yellow but not quite green. More yellow and less green than I expected, but still not gaudy looking.

The padding is good too.

All around a super jacket for the price. Go for it. You'll need the cold and wet protection way more than super hot weather anyways where you're moving.

Mark G: I've worn mesh jackets in a wide variety of climates, to include in the mid 90s. This jacket offers you the ability to remove a variety of layers, to include the insulated layer as well as the waterproof layer. What's left is the mesh outer layer with protective pads. I live in the Puget Sound area and have worn it in temperatures from the mid 40s to the mid 80s, and plan on wearing it to Sturgis in about 58 days, and have absolutely no concerns as to its ability to provide me the necessary protection regardless of the different environments we'll encounter. It will not provide too much ventilation, plus as I mentioned, the different liners afford you the ability to adjust as is necessary. I wore a similar Joe Rocket jacket in Japan several years ago in the Kanto Plain area of Honshu during the summers when it hit 95 degrees, and while it was hot, it would have been hot no matter what I was wearing, but it's hard to beat the protection Joe Rocket jackets offer with the breathing ability of their mesh jackets.

Blake G: This jacket fits comfortably and performs great in cooler weather, but I personally can't tolerate wearing it for any protracted period of time if it's 75 with direct sun... so I would caution against it. Especially if you're going to be slowing or stopping frequently. My complaint is not with the ventilation so much as the material lining the inside of the jacket, which tends to stick to my body once any amount of perspiration occurs, effectively stifling airflow.

That being said, I live in ND and prefer -10F to 80F. If you have a love of heat, can tolerate it moderately well, or don't sweat very much than you should probably attenuate my advice accordingly. Maybe as much as 10-15F.

Marcel B: Hi Daniel. Mid 80s any jacket is warm but I still wear mine. When I'm moving its just fine. But at stops you will be a little warm. But more important, I had an accident a few weeks ago. Landed right on my shoulder. Jacket ripped but the only part of my body that got hurt was my hip. The others bikers around immediately commented on how remarkable my jacket performed. So it was worth a little discomfort in 80 degrees. Hope that helps. Jun 2, 2015

Seth P: I currently live in western wa. I have had no problem with the jacket being ventilated enough for the weather. Only thing I have ran into is during the winter I put a light sweater on underneath the jacket. Other then that I love it and definitely recommend for riders in the northwest. Jun 2, 2015

Charles C: I have a Triumph America and used this jacket to commute in temps between the mid 30s through to the 70s. It is comfortable in a upright seated position. If the style has you concerned, I would suggest not worrying over it. For one it isn't too far removed from more classic cruiser styles, while providing good bang for the buck protection that far exceeds the other cruiser style of just a t-shirt.

Wade B: I use it on my rebel. I like how it looks because it is a happy medium between sportbike wear and full-on leather cruiser wear.

The only issue you might have is if you live somewhere where it gets over 80F. There is effective venting you can open up, and you can remove the insulation liner, but it still gets hot.

Ian B: Hi Sean,

I ride a street bike and it looks great on that, but I could definitely see it working for a cruiser as well. It's been extremely comfortable, kept me warm in the winter, and now cool in the summer, and the price is hard to argue with. Just go for it :)

Demian A: I wouldn't call this cruiser style, it's more adventure than cruiser. Also, it's very hot in hot weather because it doesn't breathe well, so if you live in a truly warm area you're buying a wearable sauna. It's very nice in cooler weather tho. Jun 8, 2015

Thomas H asked: I am between sizes and I am curious if the 10 point adjustment system only pulls material in or if it can also give some slack as well. I would prefer not to sacrifice this jacket's sleek design. For that matter would it puff out if I did round up a size? May 18, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Norman D: HI Thomas,
There are no expandable sections in the jacket so the only adjustment is to pull things in. I'm 5' 10" at 175# and wear a large. Most of the adjustments I've made have been one snap tighter. The waist belt adjustment is Velcro so it's infinitely adjustable. I use an electric liner which works much better the tighter it hugs your body so I don't feel the need to change any of the adjustments on the jacket once set up with the liner in. In hotter weather with the vents open the missing liner gives a lot of room to let air flow through the jacket with the vents open. I don't believe it will puff out because of the multiple adjustment points. Oh yeah, this is my 3rd Ballistic 3/Revolution jacket and I've been very happy with the quality/price comparo on every one. The only need to replace them is that I've worn them out. I have not tested the waterproof performance at this time.

Joe C: Thomas,

I'm 5'-8", 200 lbs., 42 shoulders, 34 waist, athletic build. I purchased the large and it's fits tailor made. I would consider the adjustments as cinching down excess material rather than letting material out. I highly recommend this jacket for the fall, winter and early spring. The venting is minimal so anything above 65 degrees will feel warm. However, if you are ridding in anything below 65 degrees this jacket is amazing. I typically ride down to 40 degrees with only a thin turtle neck. I hope this helped.

Gabriel C: Hi, my name's Gabriel. I've owned this jacket for some months now. As per your question, the jacket's straps allow it to become a nicer fit according to your body, but it won't make it more loose than the jacket originally comes. This jacket is phenomenal! I can't feel the chill at freezing nights riding through the highway, and the pads provide a great amount of protection. It's just a great accessory. It'll save your life too. I am grateful I have it. I'm sure you'll love it just as much. May 18, 2014

A shopper asked: What is the venting on this jacket like? It's hard to tell from the pictures but it appears that there might be vents in the underarm area and exhaust vents hidden under the fabric folds on the back. Are there?

I'm looking to use this as a Northern California cold half of the year jacket. It will probably handle the cold fine but how about the warmer days (ends of the cold season, sporadic warm days in the middle of winter)? How warm outside could it be and still be comfortable? How warm outside could it be and still be bearable?

Anselm E: There's a vent in the front, going from the armpit up toward the inside point of the collar bone in the front, and from the back of the arm pit down about 5 inches in the back. Seals are great.

I ride this thing in NorCal (Oakland), and did a couple of miles in mid-30s degree weather last night with the liner in and a thermal long-sleeve beneath that- a bit chilly, but not bad at all for 15 minutes or so on the freeway on a naked bike. WIth a proper hoodie, you're OK for sure. Mine tends to get a weird draft up the back, but I think that's from the way I sit on the bike.

In warm weather, it gets pretty muggy since it's water proof. Once you're moving, it's fine and vents well. On surface streets with a full windshield, you're gonna roast quick but that's true for any jacket.

Demian A: The supplied vents are crap because they vent to the space between the waterproof liner and the shell, so the vented air only cools you off (very slightly). It doesn't actually breath so your sweat plus the heat will turn this jacket into a Sauna.

However... The snap closure that is about breast height allows you to run with the top of the jacket undone and keeps the wind from opening the zipper on the jacket so you can flow a ton of air to clear out the muggy feeling of your own sweat. Un-cinching the sleeve adjustments also allows a decent amount of wind to flow up your arms and helps there.

If you're stopped, you bake. No way around that.

Andrew W: Yes, you are correct. There are vents both under the arms and on the back of the jacket that supply plenty of flow threw air. I have used this jacket now both on hot (without the liner)and on cold (with) and found it to be very comfortable during both. Great Jacket, no lie! Dec 1, 2013

Jazz W asked: Concerning the hi viz version of the jacket, is it more of a green or a yellow? I have a green kawasaki ninja (in the standard kawasaki green) and I am wondering how well the hi viz version would match that. Sep 19, 2015

kevin p: I actually purchased the black and gray colored one, and the color didn't match exactly how the picture looked, so realistically it would most likely be a bit off from the standard kawasaki green. But I can't say for certain though. BTW it has a double zipper just so you know (2 zippers are needed to close the front of the jacket up) and it can be bothersome. Sep 19, 2015

German C: Definitely green, neon green. Not exactly the Kawasaki green but they'll match Sep 19, 2015

Thinh N asked: I watched the video and know that this jacket is good for spring and fall so what about summer and winter? I live in Southern California, summer will be around 85 F most time of year and winter will be 65F. Can it keep me warm in winter or cool in summer (most concern is summer)? Thanks Nov 25, 2015

Trace O: I wore it in 95* summer temps in Colorado this year and had few complaints. I tend to run cold, so I overdress a bit. That said, I bet this would be a great jacket for CA, given the cool desert mornings and warm afternoons. I like it. Nov 27, 2015

Ian B: Hi,

I'm 6'4", 220 lbs, and purchased a large, and it fits perfectly. It's very true to size, so if you find that you're normally a medium, go with a medium.

Hope that helps!

Norman D asked: Isn't it really a water resistant 600 Nylon Shell and a water proof middle membrane, that's how Joe Rocket describes it on their site?
