Joe Rocket Super Ego Leather Jacket
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.

My husband loves it!
I bought this jacket for my husband for his birthday and he loves it! The fit is just right, it's durable and functional. The leather weight is good and easy to unzip into the mesh. The only problem is where do to store it on a sport bike as the leather is in one full piece, other than that is an amazing jacket.

One Jacket that does it all.
I chose this jacket because I ride in an area where the temperature can vary greatly during a single ride. The option of removing the leather panel when the temperature rises to create a mesh jacket is very handy. What I like about the Super Ego versus a standard textile mesh jacket is that even with the panel removed, you still have leather in the outer arms and shoulders for abrasion resistance. The overall construction of the jacket is very high quality with no defects that I could find. As a mesh jacket, it allows for air flow very well, with the exception of under the back protection pad. I may later upgrade to the CE armor, which appears to be more open for airflow. (Plus better armor is always a good thing.) The fit of the jacket is good, but I wish the torso were an inch or two longer. (If I lose twenty pounds and get rid of my gut, that could fix the issue as well). Both the jacket and leather panel have built in waist adjusters so you don't have to readjust the waist when removing the panel; however, the elbow adjusters do have to be reset, which is easily done. In my opinion the jacket looks awesome too.
