Joe Rocket Sonic 2.0 Leather Jacket
Comfortable + good airflow when leather sleeves are removed
Great fit and very comfortable when riding. Just make sure to respect all measures from the chart when selecting size = they are quite precise and you may be surprised to have to order a larger size than usual!

Just received my jacket this afternoon and couldn't be happier with the fit. Being 6'4, it's hard to find jackets that fit, but the Sonic jacket fit perfectly. I did have to go up to a xxxl instead of my normal xxl to have room to wear layers underneath if needed. Construction of the jacket seems sturdy and should last as long as my last Joe Rocket jacket did, 12 years.

The Joe rocket Sonic 2.0 Jacket Is a Great bang for your buck Purchase. The jacket is well put together and looks like it would protect you well in case of a spill. The removable side panels provided excellent air flow while moving and like any leather jacket its a bit hot at a stop light. I upgraded the armor in the elbows and shoulders to the joe rocket brand CE armor, and i put in a sas-tec CE2 Back pad that was a perfect fit, while adding a slight bit of weight.

What a jacket!
I am 6'2" 215lbs ordered an xlt. I have problems with jackets being long enough in the arms. This one fit the bill perfectly. The leather is thick and durable but not stiff. Has a nice option for when it gets real warm to unzip the sides on the non perf jacket. Flows enough with the side panels in. Kept my upper body warm in high 40's low 50's.
Protection is great an comfortable. It doesn't make u feel like a robot like other armor. If you remove the pads you'll find you still have plenty of padding where the protector pads were. Cons was that it didnt have a full quilted liner as it only had a removable vest liner. More than satisfied tho!

XLT and LT fits a muscular 6'8 230/204cm 105kg proportionate guy.
According to the size charts it would be very big over the chest, a bit too small over the waist and to short in the sleeve (and still be the best alternative to my stature).
None of this is true after careful measuring, I'm sorry I don't have the measurements on me.
With XLT can fit a thick sweater underneath, I doubt I coult with LT though.
All of the protections is removable which they don't seem to mention.

Great for the price
I'm a very big guy (6'3", 300+lbs). The sizing does indeed follow your shirt size pretty close. I have worn this jacket for 1 full season, riding in everything from 50 degrees up through 95. Between the zip-in panels under the arms, and the removable liner, this jacket has done me well from early spring through late fall. Up in the high temps, it does get a bit warm, but the airflow keeps everything tolerable as long as you are moving. When standing still in traffic, you'll get warm (as you'd expect in a leather jacket.)
I would go out of my way to get this jacket again, after I finish giving my bike a rider-upgrade. It's comfortable in most temps, allows for good mobility both on and off the bike, and doesn't look half bad.

Overall, this is a great product. I feel very protected wearing this jacket. I am 6' 190lbs and initially oreder the XL. It did fit but was tighter then i like. Exchanged it for the 2XL and was much happier with added room. The zip off mesh panels are a great feature. The only con i can say about this jacket is the panels take a few minutes to zip of and not really something i would want to mess with it ride. It would be a more seasonal ajustment, off in the summer and put them back on in the fall.
