Joe Rocket Ballistic Revolution Jacket 4.5 5 18 18
Great style, features, protection This jacket is great. The style is very nice with plenty of features. Enough pockets with exceptional velcro closures. I am 5'8 175lbs athletic build, so I ordered the large. It fits perfectly, not sure what the fit will be with a bulky sweater, but I have worn with my suit jacket (commuter) and it was great. It hasnt gotten really cold yet, so I can't comment, but it has been in the 50s and i did not feel uncomfortable at all. Just the opposite. The removal liner is helpful, but this is not a warm weather jacket. The construction is well done. The zipper gives me a hard time, but it may be user error. All in all, I am extremely happy with this purchase. July 27, 2014
Good Jacket This is a great jacket. Fits me perfectly. I removed the inner lining when it is hot out and it has good airflow, keeps me at a comfortable temp, it does get a little warm when riding slow, like in towns/city. When it is a little chilly out I put the liner back in and it kept me nice a warm (the day i put the liner back in the jacket, it was about 50 degrees out.) Pretty sure it would keep me warm at lower temps. July 10, 2014
not for summer I'm from northern NJ. Its unbearable to wear this in fall and summer. It only good for temps under 75F. July 7, 2014
Good for Florida winters Now that April's here, and I'm storing the coat away... Height <6ft chest: 40" waist: 33" arms: 24" shoulder to wrist Bought the Med. Fills the bill for a lightweight, (really light!), water proof winter coat. It's the first one I found that cinches down to a svelte enough cut, and still has sleeves long for for my arms. The double zipper is a nice feature but it's finicky to get fastened. I have to wait till I'm situated on the bike to properly fasten the neck, which has a really short tab, or it pops open when I move around I did stay dry in a couple nasty downpours, but the caveats with the mid liner is that: 1: Keep the sleeves OUSIDE your gloves as they will fill with water. 2: You'll find out very shortly if your pants crotch leaks as a puddle of water will form there soon enough if you sit upright. The pockets could be a bit larger, but Meh.. Small vents only to the mid liner. I'm not sure how or if they work, as I never pulled the thermal or used them. I'm happy with it. April 8, 2014
Awesome jacket Loving this jacket I have been riding in all different weather and I can't complain the jacket keeps me warm n comfy I wore it when it snowed in virginia beach and I do have to say I was super warm the ride to work and back home later that night sometimes I will wear a hoodie underneath but doesn't require you to all the time I usually wear the hoodie because it's my work hoodie and I won't be getting paint on my awesome jacket also I will have to say it was easy to size myself and figure out what I need size wise quick shipping no damage to my product I would say you have a very happy customer February 9, 2014
Good for three seasons, but not in summer I'm happy with the jacket in overall, but they are all plastic inside without the lining and so for summer they cause sweat very much. excellent choice for cool weather and rain too. February 6, 2014
Decent value I bought this jacket for Northern California weather and it does its job adequately.As other reviewers have said ,it does let air in at the front zip area which I do not mind as it also helps venting.I have worn it in fog but not rain and it would be warm enough to about upper forties.Much colder than that then I would have to employ my old failsafe newspaper behind the zip to eliminate draft.The jacket feels really good while on and the fit for me is superb ,5 7 175 medium.I have one gripe where the snap hooks at wrists have a tendency to come undone.This jacket is very reasonably priced compared to others I looked at .I am happy I bought this one February 3, 2014
made my day suck less! Okay so today I literally, by chance might I add, went through every possible scenario a motorcyclist hates going through... Basically it was a horrible day to ride, but I needed to get to work. On the way to work it was a scorching 90 degrees, and the jacket was a little hot, but not to the point where it was unbearable. Then some unforseen act of fate decided to make it pour on me. Mind you I only work 15 min from my house, the jacket kept me nice and dry. Can't say the same for my new pair of dickes but whatever. Then of course not 5 min later, the temp dropped about 40 degrees out of the blue. The jacket not only kept me dry and warm, but I wasn't dying of a heat exhaustion either the jacket is quite well vented. All in all, today sucked but my jacket helped my day suck less, for the price your getting this at, its definitely worth it. Now I can't say being stuck in bumper to bumper traffic with the jacket on the thing will keep you cool. But the same really can't be said about any other jacket. If your a commuter, who every once and a while goes HAM then this jacket is definitely for you. The back protector is very slim, you won't notice its there, and the same can be said about the elbow and shoulder plates as well. There's adjustability every where and is long, which is good considering I'm 6'1 230lbs with a 48 inch chest. That's honestly all I can really say about the jacket, it really is a win for Joe rocket, I'd definitely recommend this jacket. 5 stars. January 22, 2014

kevin p: it looked cool Jan 17, 2014
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.

michael l: A good looking jacket while im rideing or on a date....cant wait to waer it....awsome Dec 9, 2013
Jeff Y: Love my Reactor 3.0 for Florida 10 months of year - but we do get some 'florida' cold at nights in Dec/Jan/Feb that makes Reactor a bit too breezy -- expecting same quality from Joe R outta this guy. Nov 29, 2013
Daniely R: I needed something slick for wet and winter riding. Tired of big bulky coats.
Plus compare to other jackets. this looks good on any Bike I choose to ride.
I'm just hope it does justice to its look in the could month to come.

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

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.
Later,
Norm

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.

Regards,
May 19, 2014

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

Andrew W: it relaxes to a certain extent. I'm 200# at 6'0" with a 36" waist, 47 chest, I got the Xtra Large, fits and looks Great! If you're just in between sizes, I'd go up to the next one and pull it in. Hope this helps, it's a good looking jacket and rides well. May 19, 2014

tweed g: No it really doesn't offer any slack, just snugs it up. I'm 6'1'' 220lbs and went with the xl and it is just perfect. I also have a Joe Rocket mesh jacket in the 2xl and it really is too big but it works. 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.

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

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?
