Joe Rocket Super Ego Leather Jacket
I purchased the super ego back in march 2014 and chose to upgrade all the armor, shoulders, elbow and back. I used Joe rocket elbow and should pads and chose SAS-Tec for the back. About an extra 150 in upgrades. The versatility of the jacket is great. When it is cold say spring and fall you have full leather and in the hot summer you have a full mess jacket with all the protection.
I did lay my bike down on an exit ramp, I was going about 25-30 MPH. I landed on my left shoulder and suffered a collar bone break. This is actually good news, without the jacket and armor I would have tour up my rotator cuff and had more serious damage done to my arm.
After the accident there was minimum damage to the jacket. You can tell wear I hit (soft spot) and 2 zippers and a clasp were damaged. I had both repaired at a leather shop for about $80 (it was a large zipper). The jacket is still very much wearable.
Yes I would recommend this jacket to anyone but defiantly add the upgrade armor to the jacket.

I like it. This is my first high dollar item. I live in middle Georgia and the weather has been really crazy. Just started getting warmer. The full leather "mode" isn't tight at all. I wear a 2x and it fits me nicely. It's American cut so u should be able to get the same size as the shirt you wear. The only gripe I have about the jacket is that it's short without the leather. But still enough airflow. I wear my cut over the mesh "mode" in 83 degree weather and was still cool while riding. But during the 40 degree weather in full leather mode and I didn't feel any cold so I was gooooood. If u can afford the jacket, get it. You won't be upset you did.

Best jacket for this money!
It's really excellent jacket, for this money it is hard to find a better.
High-quality leather, perfect air-flow system, jacket has plastic protection, which is stronger than I expected.
To my mind, it will be look great on bobber style, cafe racer style or any cruise motorcycle.
Be sure that you will not be disappointed of purchasing this jacket.
Thanks Revzilla team, hope to do business with you again!

I really like this jacket, with the leather panel zipped off, I was able to keep fairly cool even in 85+ degree weather. I still havent even worn it with the leather zipped on, as I am currently still in a hot climate. I am 5'8 185 pounds and the medium fits me pretty well. Plenty of adjustability in the waist. The only thing I didnt like is that the arms seemed just a bit too long. When I snap the wrist closed though it doesnt ride up, so i can deal with it. I would recomend this jacket to someone who only wants to buy one jacket for mulitipe seasons.

A stylish leather jacket!
So I'm still getting all my gear together, FIRST BIKE!
Anyways, the jacket.
-It's a little stiff (probably because I'm used to jacket without any protection)
-It's a bit heavy (again the pads don't help with the weight)
-It's a bit expensive (negated by the fact it's two jackets though)
-It looks NICE
-It seems like it would protect you nicely
-Two jackets in ONE
-The zipper system to remove the outer panels is easy to use
-There's a good amount of armor in it (forearm to elbow, shoulders, spine protector) I'll most likely be upgrading to much better armor in the future but still seems like it would get the job done.
-It actually fits me nicely. I'm 5'7" and 170lbs athletic build and the jackets not short or too long and the arms are just right. Seems like it was made for me. Size Medium
I would highly recommend this jacket. It's stylish so that you can wear it around without looking like a power ranger. There's adequate protection. The build quality is great as well as the zippers used. There are plenty of vents.
If you need a jacket and can splurge a bit, this is the one!

A Great Jacket
I purchased this jacket based on owning a textile Joe Rocket jacket for nearly a year. The fit is great as is the protection. I find the removal and installation of the leather shell to be a bit cumbersome which may make rides where daytime is warm (not wanting the shell) and evening is cool (wanting to have the shell for comfort) kind of a pain.
All in all, however, a great jacket! It makes me even more of a Joe Rocket product fan

Received the product in a prompt manner. It initially felt a little tight but after a while it broke in nicely. Looks great when I'm on the bike and great when I'm off of it. I would prefer the length of the jacket to be a little longer but with most motorcycle jackets this is the style.

This product has the best features two jackets in one.
This jacket is like having two jackets in one, cold weather and hot weather all in one jacket. Good quality, good fit, I am 6'3" tall weigh 245 lbs the 2XL fit perfect.
