Perfect mix of protection and ventilation.
The Reactor 3.0 Jacket is, in a lot of ways, similar to the Reactor 2.0 Jacket (see reviews) in terms of feel and function. It's a mesh jacket primarily, with leather adornments in the shoulders, elbow/forearms, and across the chest. The removable liner is not breathable, so it's not really worth wearing unless it's raining. It will keep you dry, but you'll sweat.

The jacket has a very cool, "old-school" mixed with modern, aggressive style to it, and it's definitely a generous american cut... I'm 5'10" and 150 lbs, so I'm skinny, and the jacket, Size SMALL, has a lot of extra space in the gut area and there are various fabric bulges here and there (see attached pictures), but it's not uncomfortable. You can use the waist adjustments to help it a little bit, but not very much. This fit issue is really my only dislike about the jacket, but it's not enough to make it uncomfortable. The zippers on the wrists are an excellent touch that help with comfort when wearing gloves or for extra arm airflow when it's too hot.

As a mesh construction, this jacket will definitely keep you cool enough in the hot summer weather, but with the added leather panels, it probably won't be the VERY best for those 100+ degree days. On the other hand, you can probably stretch this jacket further than other mesh jackets into the spring and fall, and you're getting a lot more protection than most mesh jackets.

Still an excellent successor to the Reactor 2.0, with tons of features, like reflective piping in the back, inside pockets, and belt-loop / pants connect zippers in the back.

Great Buy!
I've been riding with this jacket almost daily for a few months from weather between 85deg and down to 40deg. Very nice jacket. Jacket breathes very well in heat and liner does great in colder weather to break the wind. Beef up your base clothing like a hoody and it's good in 40deg weather (approx 35deg chill riding) Definately a good buy!

The quintessential summer riding jacket
I'm a rather critical reviewer but this jacket has surprised and impressed me for the price. I bought this jacket strictly for fair-weather, summer riding. I'm a new, older, rider and recently passed the MSF course.

Protection means a lot to me, but comfort, visibility and breathability all add up to mean something too. In my opinion Joe Rocket tackled all those issues and nailed it with this jacket. I'm a muscular/husky guy (5'10" 240lbs) and the jacket measurements provided here were extremely accurate to the actual fit of the jacket. All the Rocket logos and piping in the back is reflective.

For me, leather was a must have at least on the key crash points along with CE rated armor. The hybrid blend or leather and mesh on this jacket is just brilliant. The leather is supple and thick, the mesh is a moderately tight weave with key areas of less density (for air flow). The jacket felt invisible on my 30-40mph ride through side roads in 80*F heat. For what it's worth, there are various form pads added at the collar bones and the hip/ribs area as well. Included is a sturdy foam back pad that is NOT CE rated, but upgradable.

All adjustment points are well laid out, effective and strong. The forearm adjustments work well and I actually had to move mine to the tighter setting, which worked great. Zippers all work very well and have a secure, quality feel to them. The general form and fit of this jacket is excellent, there is a moderate precurve to the arms but you could almost get away with using this as an off-the-bike jacket too. The pads stay in place very well and don't add a lot of bulk.

The rain-resistant, wind proof liner is nothing more than a nylon liner, thin and not breathable, I can't see myself ever using this.

All in all, I'm thoroughly impressed and satisfied with my purchase, for the price you're getting a high quality, well thought out jacket with a lot of function.

If I had to complain about one thing, it would be that the zipper head can occasionally get hung up on the leather stripe that goes across the chest, wiggle the zipper or put your index finger in front of it and it's not an issue.

I choose this instead of the Radar Jacket, I just couldn't get a jacket with a hump, and the Radar Dark is sans hump, but it's just that, dark...I wanted some visibility. You do loose the full leather back and some breathability but it's significantly more comfortable and less heavy. I can't recommend this jacket enough.

Great all around jacket you won't regret purchasing
Great all around jacket. Have to make alteration to rear zipper so that I can attach my AGV Telluride H2O pants. I'm 5'9 155 athletic build went for the large and fits great with some room for some more layers of needed but doesn't look like the jacket is to big. Sleeves can go tight to your wrist if you prefer to go over them with your winter gloves or loosen them if you prefer to go over your gloves. Could have used a couple of more reflective strips. Ride safe! and don't forget to wave!

Outstanding Jacket - and a real bargain
I purchased this jacket hurriedly from a local dealer when I purchased my '15 Ninja 650 ABS. I had a HD mesh jacket that I wore for a couple years on my Street Glide - and you know, I just couldn't roll out of there in pirate regalia on a Ninja. I essentially purchased based on the recommendation of the sales associate and in the back of my head was thinking "I wish you guys had a decent leather selection" - I was buying a bike..... more money than sense, if you know what I mean.

It turns out to be a wonderful jacket and although I did just place a Revzilla order for a Alpinestars GP-M leather jacket, I'm sure this Joe Rocket Reactor 3 will be my primary.

I was drawn at first to the hybrid aspects.... then the fit grew on me. I have a manly man neck.... there's plenty of room. I have broad shoulders and a gut - and it fits as it should. It's comfortable. Airflow is tremendous. The CE armor is non-intrusive and plentiful. The back protector is great, and can be upgraded to CE for a reasonable amount of cash. The zippers and general finish are all high quality. The liner is full and can be attached and detached in under a minute.

All this, and it looks great too.

The fit is true. I'm 5'10 210 and an XL fits me well - I have broad shoulders and long arms and don't feel cramped at all.

I highly recommend the Joe Rocket Reactor 3 - and I'm happy that the sales associate steered me to it. It's a bargain. I can buy any jacket I want - and I'd buy this one again without giving it a second thought.

Great on the bike, not as great at the cafe.
So, you live somewhere like Nevada, California or Australia where it gets f--k-off hot in the summertime, but you can't just ride around in a singlet and thongs like those idiot skin-graft candidates on Vespas…

What to do?

If you're not afraid of looking a bit RoboCop, you should check out this jacket. I'm a tall, skinny sort so I find the shoulder padding a bit disconcerting in a mirror, although I've caught glimpses of myself in shop windows, and it looks pretty good on the bike.
The fit is excellent for riding and once you remove the rain liner it is well ventilated and comfortable. When you do anything but ride your bike, it's a bit uncomfortable with the back pad in and the sleeves cut for handlebars, so it's not as dual-purposed as I had hoped. However;

As a summer riding jacket, it's fantastic. Well made, good materials, definitely designed by people who ride a bike. In a word it is excellent. It even buffers my backpack when I'm going to work. I love it.

If I had to pick a fault, it would be that when I slide my backpack off, it un-snaps the forearm sleeve thing. That's the worst thing. Except for the rain liner. It resists water both ways, so when you start to sweat… well you get the idea.
And I hoped it would't give me away as a MOTORCYCLIST if I wore it out anywhere, but it totally does. That's OK, though.

But I can't recommend it, if only because I want to be the only guy to roll up at Stanwell Tops wearing a, "Hey where did you get that awesome jacket, mate?"
Well I'd tell you, but then I'd have to push you off this cliff.
Sorry mate.

Even if its hot, you're cool (in more than one way)
Aside from safety, the look was important to me. The leather and mesh look great and the protection is where you need them to be. I changed the back insert to "Forcefield Sport Lite Back Protector Insert", which isn't an exact fit but does the trick. All the pockets are good for what I need them for and the pricing is where you would expect.

Summer heat? 90 degree with 90% humidity is what Florida summers are about, so far so good (though when you're stopped, you will feel it warm up a tad). I haven't had to ride in heavy rain so I don't know how the rain jacket will hold up.

A very worthwhile upgrade from Reactor 2.0
I used Rector 2.0s for the last 9 years and loved them so much I tried the 3.0 when my last one wore out. It's a big step up in overall quality from the fit to materials.

Awesome jacket.
I'm a bigger guy, 6'1" 220 lbs, and this jacket in XL fits me perfectly. The sleeves have snaps where you can adjust the sleeves so they can fit a wide variety of arm sizes.

I live in eastern WA where, in the summertime, the temps are regularly in the high 90s and 100+ isn't uncommon. This jacket flows enough air where I can still be comfortable at those temps.

The removable liner this comes with works well enough. It keeps the cold air out and I was riding in the winter with temps in the low 20s, and with decent base layers I wasn't freezing.

The styling of it isn't too over the top. I'm not a fan of the power ranger look and was happy with this jacket. The leather at the shoulders and elbows gives me extra confidence that I'll be protected if I ever go down with this jacket on.

Overall I think this jacket is a decent value for the money and would have no problem recommending it to anyone.

not really a summer jacket
I bought this jacket expecting it to flow more air than my vented leather jacket, but in reality this jacket actually flows less air than my vented leather jacket. Probably, because the mesh weave is pretty tight. I have a mesh jacket that I sold a while back that flowed air very well, but the mesh was not as tight of a weave as this jacket. Over all, this is a good jacket for the price; but don't expect it to be a great summer jacket.

The breathablity, the leather in the impact areas, the full removable liner, the extra rib and collar bone padding, and the better than average back protector pad.
Shayne C on Dec 8, 2014
I just bought my first motorcycle. 2009 kawasaki vulcan 900 custom (ebony edition). Have been researching quite a bit about whats the best product for my price range. Joe Rocket products have great customer reviews with regards to quality, comfort and durability. I chose this particular jacket for the style with standard protection and also option of removable waterproof inner lining for multiple seasons. Will post my reviews after some use.
Rahil T on Nov 19, 2014
Looks great. Felt like good construction. Not good for someone like me with a beer gut. Is adjustable to some extent but made more for slimmer people.

I'm hoping red is pseudo hi vis.
Charles R on Apr 28, 2014
Ventilation, looks and price were the main reasons why I picked this jacket. Originally got a size medium, it felt like it was a bit too big on the shoulders and torso. Exchanged it for a size small and this one was too tight on the forearms not allowing me to flex my arms freely. I should note that I'm very picky with the way a jacket fits me so I guess Joe Rocket was just not for me, nonetheless this is a very nice jacket, I wish either of those sizes fit me better.

What CE level 2 back protectors fit in this jacket?
FirecrackerJim on Feb 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but there will not be the same size. Revzilla recommended "Forcefield Sport Lite Back Protector Insert", which is a few inches shorter but held easily in place with safety pins. The insert was great for air flow.
I'm 5' 8" 135lbs and im unsure about which size to purchase, Medium or small?
A shopper on Apr 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I ordered mine online so I didn't get to try on the different sizes, but the sizing guide was a big help.
Based on that, I went with the SM. I'm 5'10" and about 140-ish...
I was going to go with the MD, but I'm glad I got out the measuring tape because the small fits me quite well.
Hope that helps.
Cheers
Does the bicep area get bunched up when you're in the riding position? Does it bother you?
Eric C on Feb 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No not it the riding position. It does when I'm off the bike.. This jacket does not let my arms hang straight naturally when walking. The snaps seem to be part of the problem my arms feel tight but it's not overly confining. I never use the arm straps. The jacket size also runs a little small for this reason I hardly wear it. My go to jacket is an old iicon Motorhead that fits me perfectly.
The jackets that have the colored panels, does the colored fabric wrap around the sides to the back of the jacket? Or is color just in the front?
A C on Apr 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 99% sure the color panel is only on the front. All the backs are black I believe. I have this jacket and it's great!
I live in Texas and want to ride in 100+ weather often. What are your best very hot weather jackets?
A shopper on Aug 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We get very few 100 degree days in PA but the Joe Rocket 3.0 jacket really flows the air. My only problem is color - the majority of the jacket and all of the pants are BLACK. Very hot in the sun when not moving, like in traffic. Otherwise, I love the jacket.
Fit is true and styling excellent.
What is the size of the armor pocket in the back (including width, length and thickness) and what CE rating is the armor in the elbow and shoulders and are those removable?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I can't answer your question perfectly because I don't have the Jacket in front of me at the moment but let me assure you before I get into the specifics this jacket is great. I have had it for over a year and it is still a great jacket.

OK, I don't have specific dimensions but the armor pocket in the back is standard. Any after market back pad will fit like the Force Field armor. If your Jacket is a larger size the a Large back pad would work, If medium then a medium back pad would work..I think you get it.

Not sure what the CE rating is for Elbow and Shoulder Armor but they are removable but there is no need because they seem to be very good quality much like the Force Field armor.
