Joe Rocket Reactor 3.0 Jacket 4.6 5 18 18
Very Disappointed with Reactor 3.0 First - this thing fits very big. I have ordered other similar jackets at 2XL and they fit great; however, at speed, going doing the highway, I realized how loosely this thing was fitting. It felt like I was flying a flag - a lot of flapping around going on. I had actually ordered (and returned) the XL version too and compared the fit - the XL was too small and I went with the 2XL. So, I do not know if the issue is in the way these things are cut or what, but there seemed to be no way to adjust the jacket to minimize all of the flapping around. Second, the waterproof lining is useless. I got caught in a rainstorm wearing this jacket and it just absorbed all of the water and it felt like you were wearing a wet blanket over top the the inadequate lining - and water got through. Lastly, the jacket is not very comfortable. The leather portions causes the jacket to feel bunched up in places you expect there to be more give. I do not recommend this jacket, but if you want to give it a try, you will find this one on e-bay. August 10, 2015
Stands up to a fall I got this because I live in Southern California and it was getting too hot in a leather jacket. About 2 weeks of wearing this I had my first fall. I landed in a soft shoulder with just gravel and dirt, jacket held up great, I got some scuffs on the elbow, but it was great protection. I still where the jacket everyday. June 22, 2015
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. I did a full review on my site April 13, 2015
Exact fit and look. I wanted a perfect fitting, armored, black mesh/leather jacket for summer to wear over a t-shirt. I am 185 lbs, 5'11'', 42 in chest, 36-37 in waist. I ordered the Medium and it fits perfectly. Just a tad tight with the back armor in. A perfect fit without. Sleeve length is right on. When I sit on my bike I don't have the bulge at my chest when I sit. Elbow and shoulder pads are perfect fit and placement. I have another mesh Joe Rocket Phoenix 4.0 in Large that I like, but it is a good fit with the rain liner in it. A little baggy when I wear it with just a t-shirt. I am very happy with the fit. I hope this helps others. Kudos to Revzilla- I received the email that my jacket arrived at my door so quickly that I didn't know what was waiting for me when I got home from work. I got it in a day. Impressive. April 11, 2015
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. October 21, 2014
Great product for a great price Liked the style and fit. It looks great first try but liked the option to send it back if it didn't. September 7, 2014
Absolutely love this jacket. Jacket fits right and flows air very well. Able to ride in much warmer climate at this point. Loving it. July 22, 2014
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. July 10, 2014

Shayne C: 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. Dec 8, 2014
Rahil T: 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. Nov 19, 2014
Gerald H: 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. Jul 18, 2014
Natee K: I chose this Joe Rocket Reactor 3.0 Jacket because of a blend of function, protection, and style for the price. May 4, 2014
Charles R: I'm hoping red is pseudo hi vis. Apr 28, 2014
Jose C: 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.

Aleksej K: I want something for hot weather Mar 7, 2014

Christopher D: 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.

Virnene Z: The size chart is pretty accurate. Height and weight does give enough information to distinguish between a small or medium; it really depends in chest size and arm length. Apr 20, 2014

Bobby M: Go with med if you have large arms and chest for your frame. The jackets tend to run slightly smaller, especially if you use the built in padding.

Joseph K: 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.

Kenneth S: You don't want mesh in 100+ temps. Skin is about 95F. Hotter air than that heats us, doesn't cool us. Try a coat with limited ventilation over a wetted evaporative cooling vest. Jun 24, 2015

A shopper asked: 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? Jun 24, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Donald T: 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.

Joseph K: I have a size small. I am 5'6" and take a 39 short jacket. This fits perfectly.

The back protector pocket is kite shaped, 5" across at the very top; 13.5" across at the maximum width, 6" from the top; 6.25" across at the bottom and overall 18" in length.

The elbow and shoulder armor are removable and CE rated. The elbow armor reads:
MJ 580
"E/K" Type-B

The shoulder armor reads:
MJ 570
"S" Type-A

I love the jacket and the pants. Good luck and hope this helps you out.
