Brilliant Concept, Almost Perfect
I bought this in the black/gunmetal color combination on the outer textile layer. The mesh layer is black/silver with a couple of white accents on the front. I opted for a medium and I am about 5'10" and 175-180lbs. It fits me snug and because it is not too loose, all the armor is in the right place.

The Good:
- High quality construction, typical of all Joe Rocket gear that I own.
- Great visibility at night, even with the darker colors because of the generous amount of reflective piping (more on the textile layer than on the mesh layer).
- Ingenious concept to have a winter jacket/summer jacket hybrid.
- The two layers of this jacket are attached at the cuffs, neck, and zippered chest on both sides so they are very securely linked in case of a mishap.
- It really is easy to roll up the outer textile layer into itself when not in use.

The Bad:
- The inner fleece layer is only a thin vest and isn’t connected at the bottom so it gets hung up and twisted when putting the jacket on. It annoys me and I plan to remove it permanently and wear a sweatshirt or something thick under it on the colder mornings.
- The armor cannot be transferred from the inner jacket to the outer jacket so the outer jacket cannot be worn as a stand-alone protective piece.

My main gripe is the last point above. I would have expected them to take the concept of this jacket to it's logical conclusion and to build in the ability to wear each jacket on its own as well as together. I would have loved to be able to take the armor out of the mesh jacket and put it directly in the textile outer layer so that I could wear it as a light, armored windbreaker without having the bulk of a mesh jacket underneath. Although that would have been great, I do appreciate the ability to wear both jackets together and then strip off the top layer if it gets too hot out.

Commuting- I can already see where this will be useful for summer commuting since it can be in the 50s and 60s in the morning and then jump to the 80s and 90s in time for the PM rush hour. The build quality seems like it will stand up to daily use.

Deep winter use - No not really. The inner fleece liner is only a thin vest so arms can get cold quickly. Depending on the fitment of this jacket on you, you might want to wear a layer over or under this jacket once the temps get into the mid to low 40s or below.

Great inexpensive road trip jacket
I wore this jacket for a full season before bringing it on a 13,000+ mile cross-country road trip. The ability to layer the jacket has allowed me to comfortably cruise with a small windscreen in temperatures as low as 34 degrees (wearing two long-sleeve layers under the jacket with both layers of the jacket zipped together). I have also ridden in temperatures in excess of 100 degrees with just the armored mesh layer and was quite comfortable. However, if you plan to ride through the desert and are from a northern climate, consider getting a cooling vest. I crashed as a result of sun fatigue (I was wearing full gear in the desert), and likely would not have happened had I bought a cooling vest. That said, the jacket held up excellently in the crash. A 20-30 mph collision into the back of a car resulted only in a bruised him and a sprained wrist. Also, when riding in warm climates, you can fit a hydration pouch in addition to the back protector in that back protector compartment. This does create a turtle-back look, but when hydration is crucial, temporary exceptions should be considered. The only true complaint I had with the jacket was the water leakage. During my first season a heavy rain ambush began seeping into the chest of the jacket after forty minutes. However, I did treat the jacket before the cross-country trip, with a inexpensive generic camping quality spray, and found that the few instances of rain, and sleet, were not an issue. This is a cost effective ($5-10) spray can fix that still makes this jacket a bargain compared to other options out there. Lastly, the fact that the shell zips into its own self-contained pocket is a huge plus when your traveling for months and have limited space.

A highly critical, but an overall positive review
I have owned this jacket for just over a year in flouro yellow. I have put thousands of miles on it, and for the most part, have liked it. It was my first motorcycle jacket. It has been a great jacket, and I do recommend it, especially to new riders, but I'm not going to buy it again.

The pros.
This jacket is great for the money. As far as features, this jacket does *just about* everything that a jacket that costs 2x - 3x as much can do, but not quite as well. It has an external waterproof liner, which is far superior to the internal liners because if you get rained on, you're not riding around in a soaked jacket. It has a fleece vest liner, which is nice if you're riding in really cold weather. Fit is true to size. It has elbow, back and shoulder protection. I would call this a four season jacket. I have had many compliments on the looks of this jacket and had just as many people ask where I purchased it.

The cons.
Even without the internal fleece liner vest installed, this jacket is heavy. You will get fatigued much quicker with this jacket on unless you are only riding with the mesh layer. The vent zippers on the waterproof liner are very hard to manipulate while riding. The right elbow of the waterproof outer layer started leaking after about three months. It's still not bad enough to ditch the jacket after a year. After about six months, the waterproof layer started having this stuff grow on it (possibly mildew) even though I always dried it out before storing it. It's stained and wont come out. The internal fleece is not sleeved - it's a vest, so you may find that your arms get cold in extreme conditions unless you wear an extra layer. Many people buy this jacket instead of buying another jacket because it already includes the back pad, but the back pad in this jacket is not CE rated. In time, the elbows have become extremely uncomfortable, and I'm not entirely sure why. Lastly, the right elbow button won't stay buttoned now, so I'm not entirely sure it would stay buttoned in a crash.

Is it a good jacket yes? Do I recommend it? Yes. Will it last a long time? Relatively, but you're going to want something else in less than a year.

Versatility abound.
This is my second Joe Rocket jacket; I’m very pleased with their quality. The Alter Ego is replacing my 12 year old Ballistic. I was looking at the Alter Ego 2.0 in the local shops, thought that was the coat for me. Turns out I ordered the Alter Edo 3.0 in error... Very happy I did.
Fit is great, I ordered the large tall since I'm 6'3 and weigh a buck 95. Arm and body length is perfect, nice and long, no wrist gaps when my arms are stretched out. The zipper wrist cuffs are a nice touch for cinching things up. The mesh jacket has snap buttons at the biceps which is great for keeping the elbow armor in place.
The mesh coat is comfortable and breaths fantastic on the warmer days of riding. I was just wearing a t-shirt in the past. Yes, I was that guy... I feel much more comfortable riding on the street with the protection the mesh jacket provides.
The outer jacket folds up inside it's self, what a great idea!! There's a gay waist strap that can be used to secure the folded up jacket to your waist. I work nights so it'll be nice to wear the mesh jacket to work in the evening and still have the compacted outer shell for the cool morning ride home.
Hope my review helps with your purchasing decision. Ride safe.

What does 100% mean to you?
This jacket will be larger than expected. Also, If the temp gets down below 50 degrees fahrenheit, you're going to be cold.
But I will say, that for normal, warm weather riding, this jacket can be adjusted to fit and function quite well. As for rain....that 100% claim needs to be flipped to .001% chance of dryness. I had every flap, button, zipper, and velcro aspect of this thing sealed up tight. There was water pooling up in my elbows, running down my chest, and the only thing that did stay dry was the middle of my back. Also, expect the rain to hammer your biceps, because there is no protection there whatsoever.
So, in conclusion. If you want a reasonably priced jacket, that looks decent, and only intend to ride in fair weather. This thing is great. If you see rain clouds, you might as well pack some body soap and make the most of it.

A multi-purpose jacket done perfect.
The Joe Rocket Alter Ego 3.0 finally gets it right. The rain shell zips to the outside of the mesh! Why would you want the rain shell to zip inside the mesh? Who wants soggy mesh? The fleece liner zips to the inside. Perfect jacket, sizing is bang-on, adjustments straps make it very form fitting. Couldn't have asked for a better jacket for the money.

In Texas this is a four-season jacket
I've been wearing this jacket every day for a couple of months, now. I'm 6'4" and 170 and thought I could fill out a Lg Tall, but I should've gone with the Med Tall. The extra width in the shoulders makes the elbow pads dangle a bit, but they line up when I have my arms extended so it works out when I'm riding. With all the straps cinched down, I'm comfortable enough with the fit that I didn't feel a need to exchange it.

The mesh has been fine through the worst of a Texas summer, but the interior can get a bit muggy with the waterproof shell on. It doesn't rain too often, here, so it hasn't been a problem for me. Now that it's cooling down the shell works perfectly keeping the wind off me at highway speeds. I'm also not entirely thrilled with the stitching on the shell. Loose threads pop up and I melt them down with a lighter to weld them in place. That's been common to every item of clothing I've ever worn, though, so not too much to worry about.

At my age I'm afraid of concrete, and I trust this jacket to keep my skin on should I need it to if I lay it down at the speeds I travel. I'd prefer a hi-viz option in the tall sizes, but I have no other complaints.

I've been hunting for A summer jacket & I think I've found it.
I'm digging this jacket. The outer shell folds nicely into a self contained pouch. With a zip out fleece vest it covers those early & late rides. The mesh jacket flows air great. I went riding in the mountains with temps from the 50's to the 80's. The air flow was perfect. When the evening dropped the temperature I zipped in the liner & was comfortable. My arms were a little cool but my core was fine. A nice feature is the armor has outer zippers to remove them. No more Velcro pouches to fiddle with. I've been wanting a summer jacket that I could stand in the heat, I think I've found it!

Wow Just what I wanted
This is an amazing jacket. I bought it with a specific intention to be able to have two jackets if I decided to give another person a ride.

The inner jacket is perfect, the mesh keeps me cool and slows the water loss in my body so that I can ride father and longer. The armor seems to fit pretty well.

The outer shell is very good as well, although it is not water proof (found out on a 900 mile ride through 5 rain storms) it kills the wind and rain jackets are cheep.

I am a safety freak and love that I have two layers of protection if I were to lay my bike down as well (when Jackets are worn together).

I have a few issues with the jacket but they are negligible. First with the two jackets it can be a bit bulky (although I prefer this over not having the second jackets to give to a second rider).

Second I can not take the armor out of the inner jacket and put it into the outer. This would resolve the bulk feel of the jackets together for me and would be a better fit on cool fall day's (rather then the bulk of both jackets with the armor) A simple zipper system on the outer jacket would solve it.

Finally the cinch straps for the elbow pads are on the inner jacket only. I would love to see them on the outer jacket as well so that I could loosen them for walking around and then tighten them for the ride (I have to take the outer jacket off now to loosen the elbow pads).

Again little things, but all in all a good product.
