Good jacket, needs some subtle refinements
Well constructed leather/textile jacket and I am so far very impressed with the quality of stitching/construction.
As for materials am impressed with the weight of the leather and the CE armor inserts. I replaced the back protection foam pad with a CE rated Klim D30 insert that fits very well. My concern about the materials is why Joe Rocket chose to use a "high tenacity nylon" over cordura, and as there is very little information about the specifications of their "high tenacity nylon", I hope it holds up well should I ever have to use it in anger. Also, I had hoped the leather on the shoulders of the jacket would come a little lower into the chest, below the clavicle, as this is where my last two jackets (both textile) have failed when crash tested.
Jacket fits true to the size chart, and I am very happy that Joe Rocket continues to make jackets with sleeves long enough for us tall, long armed knuckle draggers.
This jacket is pretty minimalist in features, but what it has i really like. Having both the 8" zipper in back and the belt loop snaps means this jacket can be worn with either jeans or riding pants. The inner vest style liner is warm enough for riding on 50F nights, but not bulky, so additional thermal layers can be worn under it easily. The waist adjustment is far stouter than those that I have had on my purely textile Joe Rocket jackets.
Airflow in this jacket seems good, once summer returns, that will have to be re-assessed. The airflow runs through the upper arms and out through exhaust vents in the back. There are no air vents in the chest as there are in the atomic 4.0, and that will i'm sure limit this jackets use in summer.
In total, I like the jacket. I hope that future renditions will incorporate a few refinements to improve an already good product.
