Joe Rocket Army Flak Jacket
Army Riding Armor
Overall - a well turned out jacket - and excellent looking. The liner it comes with is a marginal quilted liner - best to wear a sweater on cool days. Armor everywhere - nice to have if you have ever done body surfing face down on the street (don't ask). I ordered XL for a 5'11" bodybuilder and it is cut full in the sleeves & chest. Fit is good, but takes a little time to break in all the armor. Water resistant due to the armor, but you will need a waterproof liner for serious rain. Hidden pocket in left sleeve is excellent for tolls/ card readers - a great feature. I have the vented / mesh version and build quality has been excellent for 8 summers and several Patriot Guard missions. Delivered fast and well packaged by Revzilla.

I live in Fresno Cal and have put it to the test at 111 degrees out and was fine...haven't tried it in cold weather but i can tell buy its quality material tht it will be perfect. The size fits like a glove and still have room to wear a sweater underneath if needed. I get ALOT of compliments on it... Lastly i literally recieed my jacket in 2 days time... I lrobably would have recieved it un 1 day if Sunday wasnt in the way! Im satisfied! Thks revzilla u did it again!

I bought an XL on advice of others ... and it was too big ... It fit good over a sweater .... so if you're planning on layering up then size up .... but if you're going to ware this sweet baby straight then go with the chart.
This jacket looks and feels great. Pads in all the right places.
The spine pad is a little week but get yourself a Sas-tec back-protector(http://www.revzilla.com/product/revit-sas-tec-back-protector) and you're good to go.

After reading the reviews, I bought the jacket one size larger. It fits great, and is very comfortable. his would have been a great jacket to have while I was on active duty. The look is great, and I love the flip-open ID pocket on the front (would be great for going through the gates). The reflective strip may not be wide enough to conform with Army Regs, but works fine now.

Great Jacket - Hilarious Feedback
I am retired from the USAF. Didn't realize from the pictures that the whole jacket is covered in "US Army" logos, the biggest on the BACK of it. My brother, a retired ground pounder, laughed and even offered to buy it from me. But I love the features so much I am keeping it despite the Army patches. Sleaves are fairly tight as advertised and be sure to buy a size bigger than you normally wear!
