Joe Rocket Women's Alter Ego 3.0 Jacket
I own the men's version and my wife owns the women's version. These are great jackets. They aren't the best in extreme hot or cold, but for everything above freezing and below boiling, you will be able to wear this comfortably. I noticed that the women's version has the additional back-side belt loops whereas the men's version only has the front loops. There are also a few other minor differences but these jackets are excellent, particularly for the days that start off chilly and end up warm by the PM commute.
The style of the women's jacket is very nice and my wife definitely looks sexy in hers! When off the bike, you can take the armored inner jacket off and just wear the outer jacket for quick walks in inclement or cooler weather. Overall a great value for the money. Highly recommended.

Looks and fits Great
Bought this for my wife, 5'5" 120 LBS. She loves the look, fit and versatility of this jacket. We have not been in rain as of yet so cannot say about rainproof. She picked the White for the hot summer days and it will get soiled but was able to clean fairly easy.

I wanted a 4-season jacket that was in a girly color other than pink or stark white with flowers. This jacket hit all the marks and then some as I've worn it through all 4-seasons (temps low 30s through 100+) and am very happy with it.
Sufficient number of pockets, 4 configurable layers for different temperatures, cinches and other adjustment features for a secure yet stylish fit.
Have not had issues staying dry in heavy rain, IF I take time to stop and zip up all properly. I did forget I had the vents open once, soaked to the bone. Plus the outer layer does take a long time to dry, but when properly zipped no water seepage.
My only complaints are mostly superficial: the self-storage pouch is a waste of material as the jacket doesn't fit into it, not enough reflective piping or material, the mesh jacket pockets are mesh so be careful when putting keys in them, the fit at the waist is huge but small at the hips, my hubby's jacket has an inner clip for his keys mine does not.

They know you're a women.
I love this jacket for many reasons. I live in Northern Foothills of Colorado and need a jacket that I can wear year round, in fair weather, and this is perfect. For the most part I am not going to be riding in temperatures below 50 degrees F, but I have tried the jacket at around 36 degrees F, and didn't notice the cold at all, with all three layers on. That same day had started at almost 80 degrees F and with only the one layer on I felt a bit chilly. Being a female in my early 20s I want to still good in safe riding gear, and this jacket shows off my curves. I got a medium and it is slight big on me, but this jacket has cinches at the waist to help it fit you perfectly. This jacket even makes me look thinner. The only thing I am not a fan of is where it hits my neck, it is a little chocking, but this is how most riding jackets are.
Overall, this jacket is a great all weather jack for female riders who want to show off that they are a female rider.

This is the first riding jacket I've purchased so I was a bit nervous about the fit and comfort buying it online. The fit was great! And, the fact that there are three jackets in one made it an outstanding deal for a first time buyer. Revzilla's shipping was fast. The jacket arrived when promised and was very well packaged. I'll be a repeat shopper!

Offers little protection
I bought this jacket for my 16 yr old daughter. Unfortunately she went down and the jacket did not protect her. The sleeve rode up above her elbow and as a result she had a bad rash on her forearm and elbow. Additionally, the jacket road up to her chest as well and she suffered terrible gravel rash to her stomach. While the jacket is stylish and versatile, the most important aspect a jacket should provide is protection. However, it failed miserably in this category. As such, I must give it a one star rating and not recommend this jacket if you are looking for protection.

Girlfriend loves it
Got this jacket for my girlfriend based on my many years of happiness and satisfaction with the Joe Rocket brand. My girlfriend loves this jacket and mostly wears the mesh under jacket because we live in Florida and it's hot most of the time. I'm just happy I found some protection she will actually wear. This jacket fits her well and meets the measurements on the sizing page very well. She was not happy buying a large but when I explained that the bust was the main reason for the sizing she was a little more ok with it (LOL). But seriously, if you follow the sizing chart, you'll get the right size and have a safe and very comfortable ride. Excellent style, quality and fit. Most of all the ability to make this jacket transform from a winter jacket to a summer jacket is truly unique. Overall a great value and a very safe jacket. She loves it, and I love that she wears it.
