Joe Rocket Full Blast Layer
I bought this to help my summer textile jacket last longer into fall. Doesn't block wind as well as i hoped. It is kind of loose fitting in design. Does keep me warmer in moist early morning commutes in northern Ca. I'm sure this will be a great insulator under a full leather/protective wind resistant coat.

Used in Many Conditions
I really like the Rocket, Ive worn it for about 2000 miles this year so far, Took a trip to Death Valley from Minnisota, Temp ranges from 30 to 85. Works great as a jacket liner. Neck is very comfortable and keep wind out. I'm 6'1 185# and XL fit great. I like the side zipper,

Yeah, the zipper is a design flaw
Like other reviewers, I've ended up struggling with the zipper - to the point that I don't usually wear this, because it's not worth the pain in the butt factor.

It keeps me warm
I find this product good for it's purpose. I used it as my baselayer for my hit air jacket. Keeps me warm for the winter. Nice product.

Very nice product
Fit is great. Ordered L (reg), I'm 6' 2", 210 lbs. It keeps me worm during my commute even in temp close to freezing. Nice style, I wear it around the office sometimes. Air flow is pretty good. All the comments about the zipper are true, but it really takes a couple of times to break it down and "learn" how to zip it up in one motion. I would buy it again.

Great Base Layer Sweater
I bought this to keep me extra warm during the winter. This is a very nice pull over sweater that does a good job blocking wind. It has been a very nice addition to my motorcycle clothing.
Plus is comes with the Coat Hanger.

Joe Rocket Full Blast Layer
I bought this for cold weather riding. I am 5' 9", 215 lbs and the Large size fits me great. The collar is soft and works well under my Teknic jacket. I rode today at -3 C / 26 F with a wicking layer under the Full Blast, (under my jacket with thermal liner of course) and I was not cold at 105 kph / 65 mph.

Finally some reasonably priced motorcycle-cut middle layer fleece!
The Joe Rocket Full Blast met my expectations. I am 6' 230# and the XL fits comfortably snug with a base layer on. Under my jacket it doesn't feel bulky. I've only been on a couple cool weather rides since it arrived and I was kept warm for both. The thumb holes are a nice touch. The longer sleeves and higher collar are the features I was looking for in a motorcycle-cut fleece. The offset zipper while a cool feature is my only gripe. Like other reviewers have said, for some reason the zipper keeps catching when trying to zip up. I think it is the odd pull angle. I'm still able to zip up and down but the up requires 2 or 3 attempts. It is worth noting this wouldn't stop me from buying another one.
