I have only used this jacket in the winter since I bought it in late fall. I like it a lot with two small exceptions noted below. The jacket has a lot of features that I was looking for: pockets, length, warm liner, etc etc. I commute to work and it has kept me plenty warm with my work clothes underneath. I even used on a 10 degree morning, although I was layered up quite a bit (still did not get cold though). The zipper vents appear to be in good positions but I haven't had a need for them yet.
My two small complaints are the velcro on the exterior pockets and on the interior pockets. For the exterior pockets, the velcro is already tearing away from the jacket after several months of daily usage. Better stitching is needed. For the internal pockets (on the liner), be careful not to wear something too fuzzy like a sweater. The velcro may catch on the clothing and damage the fabric.
Overall though, I really like this jacket!

This jacket is wonderful. First day I wore it it was 96 degrees out and until I had gotten off my bike it hardly felt like I wasn't even wearing a jacket at all, the air flow was great. Its comfortable to ride in and the liner seems very warm but haven't had a chance to test it. I'd say all in all for around 150 its an amazing buy, I wouldn't recommend any other jacket.
The only con for me is the size, I wear a medium in most Joe rocket which is about a 40 - 42 according to the video that put me in a size small which fits great in the shoulders and arms but in the torso when not adjusted I swim in the thing particularly around the gut area. This is a common issue for me though being as I am 6'3" and 155

I have only worn this a few times, but I am very satisfied with the jacket. The fit for me is perfect. I have worn it over a bulky sweatshirt, and just a tee shirt. The air vents work great. I opened them while wearing the sweatshirt, with the liner in the jacket, and I was comfortable. They were closed with the tee shirt and I did not get cold. I was riding while it was 50, and the wind was blowing. My legs got cold through my jeans, but my upper body was fine. This jacket does exactly what it claims.

E B: Maryland gets pretty cold, and my husband looks at the weather everyday to see if it will be cool enough for him to ride. His bike has just been sitting and he's itching to take it out. Hopefully with this new 4-season riding jacket he can go out and ride like he does in the warmer months!Dec 17, 2013
A shopper asked:Hi guys, I'm just starting into riding on the hyw/ interstate. I understand that a denium jacket and blue jeans don't offer much protection, I've been told that leather is the best because the non-leather gear can melt into your skin in the event of a bad accident. Any one have an opion or experience related to this ? Thanks Kevin C.Sep 12, 2013
