Joe Rocket Reactor 2.0 Leather Jacket
The ventilation is great. It is very comfortable. I got a size small despite being 5 foot 9 and 170 lbs. I typically fit between sizes, thick neck and less bulky shoulders at a 40 in chest . and a 33 waist. I went small so the shoulders wouldnt rise. It fits well, but it feels about an inch or two short at the waist. I like the pockets inside and outside.

Great armored Jacket for those hot summer days
This jacket breathes, period.
Always flowing air and keeps you nice and cool.
I keep the rain liner out most of the time and zip it in for the early morning or late night rides. The Jacket breathes so well, you really don't want to be caught out in 60' weather without the rain liner zipped in.
My very first concern with the jacket was how loose the armor felt. Almost like it floats around too much in the shoulders and elbows.
Once you are in riding position however, the bits all stay right where they belong.
I love the jacket and it looks darn good on.

JOE ROCKET quality is good.
JOE ROCKET quality is good. Not a cool weather jacket. Summer 70 and above wold be the starting point for me. Pockets and inside storage is good. Have been wearing it for a few days so far does the job.

Love at first ride!
I bought this used from my friends dad for $80 so it was a great buy. He had actually only rode in it once and realized it was bigger than what he wanted so it was 'like new'. The first time I rode in it, I was thinking having a jacket would suck and be uncomfortable but this jacket is amazing. With the liner out, wind gets through it no problem #it was about 48 degrees my first time so I would know#, so it would be great during hot summer days. With the liner in during my next ride, it was about 45 degrees and with a sweatshirt on underneath, I was 100% comfortable. It seems that I happen to be the perfect size to comfortably fit in an XL without it being too big. I would recommend this jacket to anyone!

Another great product from Joe Rocket!
The Joe Rocket Reactor 2.0 is hands down the best mesh jacket I've purchased to date. JR thought of everything when they designed this jacket. From the IPOD cord slot and the additional rib padding, to my favorite all time feature of the spare helmet visor pocket(ingenious!)I have an older Joe Rocket edition of this jacket that I have used to ride in the Arizona heat for the last 9 years (and I use it 8-9 month out of each year) and other than some fading on the mesh from the AZ sun, the jacket has held up beautifully. I look forward to owning my new rocket mesh for the next 10 years...Way to go Joe!! Dan"

Excellent Quality Jacket
Definitely a nice "Bang For Your Buck" jacket for those HOT summer days. Lots of pockets for small items storage and a spare visor pocket. Waterproof liner that's removable makes those rainy day rides enjoyable. Perforated leather and armor provides solid protection and heat ventilation.

First, thanks for the video review Revzilla does for most of their products. It wasn't until I had seen the review with the taller model that I became confident enough to buy the jacket. The jacket is great. It does not ride high in the torso (which for tall folks is a concern). The arms are little snug but it is a warm weather jacket. The arm adjusters keep the elbow armor in place regardless of what you are doing or fast you are doing it. The jacket is well-made and will afford the wearer protection from a spill. The armor in the elbows and shoulders are good. The back protector is not solid as a CE item (and it isn't marketed as such) but it isn't flimsy either. The rain liner is good but I will do not use it since it turns the jacket into a sauna. The jacket is great for hot days (I have used it in 110 degree days and was not more uncomfortable than wearing a long sleeve shirt). You are going to sweat so might as well be that much more safe. Joe Rocket makes a great jacket in this model and Revzilla delivers at a great price and has earned my loyalty. By the way, I am the type who spends endless hours searching for the best quality and the best price. I hope this helps. Keep the rubber side down!!
