Joe Rocket Speedmaster Jacket
this jacket is very thick leather
Jacket is great but was mislead with the sizing video and reviews I'm 6 ft 190 with 42 inch chest and the size 44 is so tight on my chest it looks like those guys who wear a t shirt 5 sizes to small it's really uncomfortable around my chest with tones of room around the waist . Can't see how that guy was 215 lbs

I picked this jacket up as a first jacket, period. I was going to pick up a textile, but upon a little further consideration and the fact that this jacket went on closeout in High Risk red, I jumped on it. I'm glad I did. I've only ridden with it minimally so far, but it feels good, nice snug fit and everything stays in place. Leather feels good and sturdy, but does feel "thin" in some areas.
The only reason I did not give it a 5 star rating is that I do not feel I really can since I have no experience with Alpinestars or Dianese products and others that may be on the next tier of quality and durability.
I'm 6'1" about 260 with a 48" Chest. I got the 48" and right out of the box it is snug. After wearing it a couple of times and riding around a parking lot getting ready for my MSF course, it has broken in a tad and is pretty comfortable.
I cannot give too much info on airflow as i have only ridden it to about 20 mph, but it feels like it would let a decent amount through for a non-perf jacket.
I actually thought of purchasing a second in case I go down and rip it up too badly.
The one thing I am not a fan of with this jacket is the zippers on the cuff. They get flipped around and unlocked quite easily if you dont make sure you really tuck them in the small overlapping flap on the cuff, but as long as you make sure to take the step and look them over before going, you should be fine.

Great product once again from Joe Rocket
This jacket is very comfortable and well made. Fits slightly large but not too bad. The review video made by Anthony is spot on and describes the product well.
I'm not sure how durable or protective it will be but I hope I never have to find out hah.
Overall I'm very happy with the purchase.

This Jacket Feels like a second skin of armor!
I am amazed at how well the jacket fits and feels. I bought one size down after reading reviews and they were spot on. I am 6 ft 205 with a 17 neck and 35 arms, the 44 was a perfect fit for me, the sleeves run an inch long but you'll get used to it. I did replace the back armor with an upgraded CE level 2 and this is my new go anywhere jacket. I bought the Hi Viz Yellow and get compliments on its looks. I am riding a new 2015 ZX 10 R 30th ann edition and it looks great. I like how safe the jacket makes me feel when riding fast on the streets.

Great Jacket for warm wheather riding
Picked up this jacket on closeout for a great price. This jacket has Airflow. Love this jacket. definitely a more race fit but does allow room for us larger folks. The customer service from Revzilla was awesome.....fast shipping and great service. Definitely my new spot for gear and accessories.

excellent jacket with a caveat...
first and foremost i bough the high risk red on closeout 2 weeks back. I had to send this back to Revzilla - but wishing now i did not and probably will get this back again if i dont find any alternatives.
First the Pros:
1. Excellent value at the price (sub 200 USD) at closeout
2. A lot of features - adjustments at the waist, arms etc which give a customized fit.
3. US cut - for the unfortunate folks who are not "cut" out for the European sizes - size 46 fits well (chest 46.5) with a little bit of room to spare (C2 2.0 back protector).
4. CE certified shoulder and forearm protectors
5. Backpad which can be upgraded to a level 1 protector - ICON for aroudn 25 USD fits well.
6. Excellelant airflow (actually a little draft at 35F weather at 45 mph
1. Slightly larger cut around the neck - which can actually be a positive
2. Slightly longer arm length - again not a con since short cut gloves can be accommodated . Maybe as an Asian (Indian) i am just complaining since this should fit an average American well.
3. 8" zipper - would have preferred a 360 zipper for pant attachment.
Most recommended value for money prodcut from JoeRocket.
