Joe Rocket Sonic 2.0 Perforated Leather Jacket
Bang for your buck!
I was looking at the Dianese cage and the alpinestar avro and I think I made the right decision. I waned a more biker look too. It smelled like good leather when I got it and to my surprise it fit! i have a 39 inch chest and the medium fit great. The dual density armor is very much like thick memory foam and unlike cheaper jackets it is CE approved and also it feels safe while wearing it. Even the spine is CE rated which usually you have to buy an upgrade for so all in all im very happy with it. All the armor fit where it should.
It was in the 80s today and while the lining around the armor felt like it clung to my arms a little when I was sweating, the removal inserts create good air flow and since you can remove the thermal vest im not complaining. The back protector kind of curves and sticks into my belt while walking around, and its a little turtle shellish but thats the worst of it. 3 decent pockets, CE armor, and snaps for adjust-ability, biker look, plus sweet little embroidered rocket logos make this very much a good buy.

When I first got the jacket it fit a little tight. After wearing around the house a bit and riding it stretched out very nicely for a comfortable fit. Armor is easy to remove as well as inner liner. Under the arms can be unzipped for better air flow. So that will be nice for when summer hits.

This thing is awesome. Fits great, looks great, and protects.
I love this jacket. Let me tell you why without taking up too much of your time.
1. It has all the protection you can get. Leather + armor = less pain in the event of an accident.
2. It has style. The back of the jacket looks so cool. It has a long cut in the tail to keep you covered too which is nice.
3. It fits like a glove and the fit is customizable in the waist and arms.

I just purchased my first jacket and wow what a good pick. I've been riding for 3 years now and have been using aged "hand -me-downs" Finally saved up enough money to buy my own jacket. Its a great jacket in the sense that its leather but it also has unzippable under arms that exposes the mesh interior so on those warmer days you can still be cool. Over all great jacket and great hidden padding. Soft leather so you don't need that break in period to get it comfortable. The Jacket does run small. Im 6'1'' 150 pounds and it fits snug at size XL. A little pricy but overall the jacket will last 10 plus years if treated correctly. Longevity over price all day.

Great jacket but fits a bit weird.
I love everything about this jacket besides the fit, but that might just be chalked up to personal preference. It fits nice and tight around my torso but there is so much room in upper part of the sleeves that you'd need to be a competitive bodybuilder, or just very fat, to fill them. Thankfully there are some elastic straps on the arm to tighten them down for a better fit.
The armor makes you feel secure. I often throw my elbows into things to see if I can feel anything through the armor, I can't.
I live down south so the vents were a must for summer time. Unless you're driving very slow or stuck at a light they provide more than enough air flow to keep you cool. In the winter the removable panels seal the jacket up and you don't need to worry about cold wind leaking through, the same cannot be said about rain however.
There is only one complaint I have. The zipper on the wrist is also accompanied by a small button to secure the cuff. Depending on how tight you wear your gloves, and the placement of the button you will find yourself in a great deal of pain as it presses down into your wrist. But it's nothing a quick realignment of sleeve or a pair of scissors can't handle.

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.
