Joe Rocket Army Camo Alpha Jacket
Army of One
Well it has been some years since the ACU's went into the closet, but with this jacket I don't miss it (Well a little). I am about 6'4" 257 in weight and this Alpha jacket fits true to size. The reason it does is the pervious jacket was 3XL and this one is 2XL. The sleeve length is perfect to cover over the gloves. I telling you guys and gals, it was hard trying to locate a jacket that had position elbow and shoulder pad in the right place. Now, had I paid $300 dollars I would not be anger. The back protector from the previous jacket works well in the jacket. In Sarasota or better yet, in the Sunshine state period; Its always hot! Me I ride a 1300 Hayabusa so you riders that have a big bike know about the heat. The heat from the chassis is crazy hot, this jacket allows for air to flow. Hey! I like the jacket really. Got a few Joe products, so I can really say all is well. Thanks for the perfect functionality of the jacket with belt loops in the back, "what a great Idea." No jacket I believe will compare. Retired Non-comm all the way, Go Army!

Excellent First Jacket
I found this Jacket looking for Army motorcycle gear, and had my local dealer order it for me. I ordered it a little bigger so I could wear it all year long. This jacket is excellent through the spring and fall. In the winter the quilted liner is not enough to keep your arms warm for the cold rides (below 50). The jacket breathes well with all the vents open, but finally starts to get pretty warm above 80. If you're going to be on the freeway all day, this is no problem, you can ride into the 90s with this jacket, but if you're going to get caught at stop lights, you're going to be sweating. For the price it's worth the money for all the army and 3 (or 4) season flexibility, in the past year and a half I've warn this jacket from 28-95 degrees and I'm happy with the purchase.

I was initially attracted to the jacket for all of the cool Army styling, but probably would not have bought it just for that. Then when I looked into it further I really like all of the safety features like the pads and of course the reflective panels. I am retired Army and live close to a few posts and it is really nice always having the required reflective gear always on hand. The two front stripes affix with Velcro (hook pile tape to you Parartroopers) and the back panel sewn into the back pocket and the bottom is held in place with magnets. That works well on the exterior but also helps to hold the panel flat when stowed away and keeps it from bunching up. The ID holder is very useful when getting thru the gates as well. The zippered vents really help out with airflow when it gets warmer and are easy enough to close when it gets a little cool. I am 6-1 and about 190 pounds and the size L fits well. There is a little bit of extra room in the chest and the waist is adjustable and fits great. I really like it and get a ton of compliments on the jacket everywhere I go.

This is a great jacket and is very comfortable.
I was looking for something different when I bought this jacket. I really like how the jacket pays homage to my days in the service. I get constant complements on it. The most important part is that the jacket looks great and is a very nice riding jacket. It has many features and is good for both summer and winter riding. I would recommend this jacket to anyone looking for a motorcycle jacket with an U.S. Army flare. The only flaw is I think it is a little pricey but worth every penny.

Can't live without it.....
This product is the best accessory to riding. It looks great when I'm on my Harley and also has great features for night riding. It makes my wife feel better knowing the reflective portion is there. Riding with this jacket on during 101 degree F weather is not that bad. Opening the vents actually lets the air go through and making it feel cooler. Plus the jacket looks really cool and people ask "were you in the army?". I just look at em and speed away....

This product has great features.
This is a great jacket. The only issue I have is that it doesn't fit well over my ACU's. Beyond that, I'm very impressed. It had many suprise features that I didn't know about until after I received it, like the fold-out reflection "vest" and the removable ID patch,
