Joe Rocket Classic '92 Jacket
Love it. Good quality, perfect finish, missing protection but still good, big for size but good if you choose your regular size and want to use a hoodie under. And great service from revzilla. Quick, good communication, and good security, and answer mail cuickly.

LOVE it! Exactly What I Wanted
I LOVE this jacket. This will be perfect for my cross-country ride (and move) to Los Angeles (next year).
The leather feels great and with use, it will get even better.
The liner is gorgeous and what I'd expect from a leather jacket (unlike the Scorpion 1909 jacket's liner, which I got before this jacket and returned). The chest and "key" pocket (on the right side) are well placed and sized. And the inner pockets are perfect.
I can use this jacket for motorcycle and non-motorcycle use. This is unlike my all-season jacket which I look and smell the motorcycle part with when using on a train or grocery shopping.
This jacket gives me the protection areas I expect from a motorcycle jacket but the look of a
I got it in Brown in size Medium and it fits almost perfectly. I'm 5 foot, 9 inches (175 cm), 180 pounds (81 kg), 40 inch (100 cm) chest, 32 inch (81 cm) waist. It wasn't too tight nor too loose. The only non-perfect part were the sleeves. They are a little bit longer than usual for me but nowhere near enough to be consequential.
I actually like that the jacket did not come with armor. I only wish they provided specifications on armor sizes and shapes so people can get the right armor from other vendors.
I decided on the Icon D3O armor (aka T5 Evo armor) for the shoulder and elbow and using the Klim D3O Viper T5 Pro Back Protector I already have and use on all my jackets. They seem to fit well with little movement (it's currently Winter and it will be awhile before the weather is good enough for me to test this).
I HIGHLY recommend this jacket for anyone looking for a casual jacket that they can also use as a regular jacket (off the bike).

Hi, I just bought this jacket and have say I'm a litlle disapointed.
Hi, I just bought this jacket and have say I'm a little disappointed with the fit. Im 30 years old 175cm tall and 67 kgs weight witch if you have the spare time to look up name such as Casey Stoner Valinteno Rossi you'd find there body size is very similar to mine my brothers and mates who also ride.
So were am I going with this you ask ? The SIZE come on guys the small is a large.
Bike gear should tight not silly tight but cumforatble an hugging.
This jacket does not fit in many areas. The neck, arms shoulders and wrists are way out.
There are SMALL people who ride fast bikes turn on your telly and look for MOTO GP.
Then Once your convinsed MR JOE ROCKET Make a f@#king jacket that fits us and not a rain coat.
NOT Happy and why return I got the smallest u make.

Exactly as advertised
I watched the RevZilla video on this and took their sizing advice. The jacket looks great and is very comfortable. Can be worn casually as well as on the bike. Does not come with armor, but that was the only downside for me.

Great Fall Jacket
The jacket has a great fit and the liner provides plenty of extra warmth as the temperature drops. The buttons at the top could be a little higher quality

Best Bang for Your Buck!
I'm 6"0 and 160 lbs and I ordered this jacket in a Brown (M). However the Medium was too large (sleeves, waist) so I exchanged it for a Small and could not be happier.
If you are a size 38/40 chest, 30-34/36? waist you should wear a small in this jacket. Even with armor in the jacket I can still wear a hoodie and feel comfortable.
I purchased the Klim D3o T5 Replacement armors for shoulders, elbows, and back (Viper). Only the elbows are a perfect fit. The back armor slides into place easily but is too small and the shoulder armors are too big for the pockets. I will look into other options to exchange.
Overall this jacket is definitely worth it for the price, even with armor sold separately.

Great for fall riding
I bought this jacket because my current jacket is completely mesh, which is great for hot weather riding but doesn't do much in the way of warmth in the spring and fall chills. This jacket has performed excellently. I ride a VTX 1300C, no windshield, so I catch all the wind like a billboard, and my core has stayed warm on rides down to 40°F. Anything colder than that the legs start to go numb from the cold.
I am 6'2", athletic build with long arms and a 45" chest, and the large fits me great. I was debating getting the XL but glad I didn't. Haven't put in any armor so that will tighten it up a bit, but the comfort of the jacket makes it easy to wear around all the time.
