Joe Rocket Sonic 2.0 Perforated Leather Jacket
great option for tall riders
Bought this because i needed a tall model. I'm 6'4" 205-210lb with 43" chest and the Large Tall fit perfectly. The length is ideal. The jacket fits PERFECT over a tshirt which is the way I plan on wearing it. If i needed to ride in colder weather with a sweater underneath i'd probably go for XL Tall size.
The jacket is quite stiff. I'm hoping it breaks in over time. Good amount of reflective piping as well. Shoulder and elbow padding feels pretty solid, but back pad should probably be replaced with something a little sturdier.
overall quite happy iwth my purchase. The fit is really good.

Great Solid Jacket for Tall Person
Just received the jacket. Have not and hopefully will not crash test it, but i can say its very good quality. Very thick leather, well put together. Only down side is there is no rib protection which would really make this jacket complete, but there is spine, shoulder, and elbow protection which all feel sturdy. Happy with jacket, especially since this was one of the only ones i could find in a tall size and not spend a ton of money. I'm 6'4" and 195 lbs. Ordered a Large Tall and it fits like a glove. Probably enough room for for 210 lbs person as there is a little room but not much.

Make sure you wrap yourself in leather
I have wanted a leather jacket since I started riding... Found it in this beast... Jacket is comfortable.. Still stiff but breaking in nicely... Fits well... Sleeves are a hair too long... A little tight in the middle area... I got an XL... I'm 5'9" about 225...its sit your arms in good position for riding which helps with arm fatigue... Plenty of padding and protection...

Spot on for the money
I tried to go closeout pricing on a different jacket in a large and found I may be a little soft in the middle for motorcycle jackets. At 5'11" and 200lbs I went with the XL Sonic 2 and love the fit. Sleeves fit and I have wiggle room in the jacket to possibly fit a hoodie but not much more. The leather is nice and happy it has armor. The zippers top notch and wind flap behind the zipper works. The branding is subdued and acceptable. The embossed "Rocket" on the tail flap, logos on each shoulder and rubberized rocket emblem at the neck do not make me feel like a walking billboard. There is only a thermal vest but the sleeves have kept my arms warm in 40 degrees. I haven't tried the mesh vents but hope they cool me down when it gets hot.

Big Guys Rejoice ! ! ! ! !
Im 6'4", 180, 44-46 waist. Bought this for track days to zip to some leather pants. Being a large guys its almost impossible to find good leather for track days that fit. I did not want to make the investment in custom leathers or the JR one-piece that i am not sure would fit anyway. I got the 3xl long and glad I did as i needed the extra length which I still could have used a couple more inches when zipped to the pants. Very good quality and works well although I have not crashed with it. I also use it for a summer leather jacket. This jacket runs big, so if your not gonna zip it to some pants, then get a size smaller than you usually wear. Revzilla ships fast, has good prices and the Zilla cash is a nice touch. Thanks

Awesome Leather Riding Jacket
I was very apprehensive on making a large purchase on a jacket sight unseen. But I also realized that Revzilla would exchange with no hassle.
This is a well built, stylish jacket. The side zip out venting works great. Very comfortable. Great Buy
I am 6'3" 265.. Glad I ordered the 2XL Tall as it covers lower back great.

It's made of good heavy, flexible leather with sturdy zips and snaps. Two side pockets and one inside breast pocket. Snap collar, zip and snap cuffs and velcro waist adjusters on left and right sides. The spine armor extends to my shoulder blades.
The tall size is really tall. The XL jacket fit me, but the XL Tall was too long. I wear a Large Tall shirt; I'm 6'4", 230 pounds and slightly paunchy. I wanted a little room in the jacket for layering.
The mesh panels under the arms move a good amount of air, so in hot weather it's comfortable at speed but fairly hot when sitting at a stop light or walking around. Uncovering or covering the mesh panels is simple, but you have to take the jacket off first. The covers are fabric, and fit easily in a pocket when not in use.
