Joe rocket ballistic revolution jacket review

First impressions:

Styling is nice, I like the fact that this jacket flashes a good deal of hi-viz yellow while still being less than 100% conspicuous. The hi-viz has been strategically placed so that it is directly visible in the front and rear when in the riding position. This does work too, I notice a lot of people looking back at me in their rearview mirror. Joe Rocket is the only brand I've seen that makes this stylish option available in an adventure style longer jacket. I do get compliments on the jacket’s look.

Putting on this jacket for the first time, it was easy to adjust everything to where it fits right. The zippers on the sleeves and the outside pockets are waterproof which means they're stiffer than your regular zips and they open and close very smoothly without grabbing fabric around them and binding. This alone is already good.

All outside pockets are waterproof, the upper pockets have waterproof zippers and the lowers fold over below the opening so the opening itself faces down and prevents water from coming in easily. The rear butt pocket is just barely big enough to hold the liner or a pair of gloves with hard armor. Nothing special there.

The neck closure flap is too small and there isn’t enough velcro, if you wear a balaclava it can pop open for no reason, and the snap at the top of the flap is hard to fasten if you’re wearing
The main double zipper is a pain to get started, I have no idea who needs a double ended zipper here. I’ve used the feature a few times to go to the bathroom, but that’s about how useful it ends up being.

While the body of the jacket is nicely waterproof, the main closure of the jacket is NOT. In the rain, and if the jacket bunches up at your waist, which it will because it’s an adventure style jacket, water can get blown into the main zipper if you ride a naked bike like I do. The zipper is just your regular cloth variety and once it gets wet, your clothes will start getting wet. The closure has a back-fold that should prevent water from getting into the zipper, but the fasteners to keep it closed are four measely snaps which don’t provide a very positive closure where it’s needed the most. This area is also the weak spot when it comes to cold weather as cold air can get thru. It could have used a true double closure.

In warmer weather this will be a hot jacket due to a lack of direct venting, but the protection of the jacket might just be worth it as it feels very solid and safe.

The inner liner is warm enough for 50 degrees without any layers underneath, but the pockets in the liner are rather pathetic. On the right side are two pockets, side by side, one of which has a velcro closure and another which has a stretchy closure. Neither of these pockets is wide enough to hold a smart phone and the only use I see for them is holding sun glasses or a Nokia 5190 from 1995. On the left side is a larger pocket that will hold a smart phone but instead of being a top loading pocket it has a zipper up the front side of it. Being made out of flimsy fabric and equipped with a small tooth zipper, and with a flap that covers a zipper, the overall effect is that opening and closing the pocket while you're wearing the jacket is a pain in the butt and requires two hands without gloves on. That and the side opening means things are likely to fall out of it when you open it. Oh and the same pocket on the actual jacket is a top loading design that actually works. I have no idea who designed this liner, but the 90s want their design back.

Overall, I’m pleased with the jacket, I would buy it again as it does perform well enough for the price point. The styling can’t be beat and I don’t intentionally ride in the rain enough for the non-waterproofness of the main zipper to be a huge problem. This jacket could use a re-design in a few areas, but the niggles aren’t deal breakers by any means.

great in any situation
I was thrown from my bike while wearing this jacket and came out unscathed. I slid on my back for about 30 yards and the jacket didn't tear, just looked dirty. You'll have to replace the padding at the spine bc it's just cheap foam but its worth it. I used this jacket in the southeast while in 55-30 degree weather and it was great. I was never cold or uncomfortable. Hope that helps

Tough as nails; priced right.
This is a decent jacket, especially for the price. I'll start by saying its plenty warm; 50 degrees is not a problem for this jacket, and anything above 70 degs you'll definitely want to remove the inner liner. I wore it yesterday in 75 degs, no liner, vents open, with a t-shirt underneath, and I think it would get uncomfortable in any higher temps. The trade-off, of course, it that it feels bullet proof. Its a good looking jacket; easily adjustable. I like the doubled-over velcro front pockets and zip-pocket on the inside back. Others have commented on the neck closure velcro being too short/snug, and I'll agree. The sleeves, especially with the liner in, border on the ' almost too snug' side. So if you spend a lot of time with barbells, this probably won't be the best jacket for you. The jacket tapers a bit in the waist, and will best fit a rider with a slim-to-athletic build. If you carry your spare-tire above your belt, this won't be the best jacket for you. I use this jacket for daily commuting, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a decently priced and great-looking jacket that doesn't care if it gets beat and abused. FIT: I'm 5'8", 160 lbs, average built and the medium fits well.

Great jacket for cooler riding
When you watch the review, they mention that this jacket is ideal for colder conditions, but not too cold, as the liner isn't too thick (although it is a full sleeve liner). They also mention that it doesn't flow a lot of air.

They aren't kidding. I rode with this jacket in 80 degree weather and was sweating. A ride in 55-60 degree weather had me shivering. It's kind of a toss up.

This jacket and another Joe Rocket (mesh, purchased from another site), combine to form my upper body riding gear.

I love Joe Rocket stuff and the protection it offers. My last several jackets have been Joe Rocket- I was dismayed to see that they stopped production of the Meteor line, which was my last purchase.

Pros:
Looks great.
Well made.
Waterproof.
Full sleeve liner.
Great adjustability.
Lots of Pockets.
Excellent collar closure and collar feel.
Great fit.

Cons:
Narrow acceptable temperature range.
Not much in the way of airflow, with only 4 small vents.
Wrist closures are a bit fiddly- It can be difficult to get gauntlet gloves over them without the buttons coming undone.

In all, I like the jacket, especially at the price offered. Joe Rocket fit is great for my admittedly American-sized body, and the feature set is a big factor.

I'll need to ride with it some more to get a better feel for the capabilities of the jacket, but for the price point, you can't go wrong.

Prior to purchasing this jacket, I tried the FirstGear Kilimanjaro, which was more than double the price. The fit was WAY off from what I was expecting- the sleeves were so long, you couldn't see the logo on the arms. That was how much material was bunched up in the sleeves. And the midsection was too tight in the same size. The Kilimanjaro had a very nice material feel and was obviously made of softer-feeling materials, but it had to go back because of fitment issues.

This Joe Rocket jacket was a great, inexpensive, alternative that offers most of what the FirstGear jacket has, with the possible exception of ventilation.

Waterproof..to a point
I'll start by saying that I really do like this jacket. The shoulders especially are punk-as-f#$% looking. But....

I took this thing for a ride from Portland around Mt. Hood to Hood River in Oregon last weekend. Predictably, it was cold and very wet. Decided to take the highway home. this was also very, very wet. Jacket withstood the water on a ~55 mph freeway, no problem. Once I got on the highway and was going 65-70, I ended up being completely soaked in the front from my neck to stomach. Not sure if water was coming in around the zipper channels or what.

If you are dealing with an amount of rain not found on a PNW highway, this may be a great jacket for you. I am going to be looking for something else, unfortunately.

great for cold to moderate temperatures
This jacket looks great, feels great and definitely has a bang for the buck. Has a removable insulated lining, which keeps you pretty warm. You can take it out and open the vents to be fairly comfortable around 70-80F, but anything above that you will start to sweat. Rain-resistant rather than rainproof in my opinion. Stayed decently but not completely dry. If you have a thick neck, the top velcro latch is not going to close; the neck hole is pretty small. Otherwise, a great, comfortable, stylish jacket.
Be prepared to be mistaken for a cop at night though...

good value-looks sharp-snug fit
5-8 155lbs, 32" waist and the medium fits perfect. Would not want it any "snugger". Collar not a problem with cooler/mild temps. I ride generally in 50 degrees and up.comfortable fit. Appreciate the length-covers lower back. I purchased this based on the reviews and having previously owned a Joe rocket Ballistic jacket that saved my hide in a bad accident. If you are new to textile jackets, get one with armor-it makes a difference and you won't know it's there.Very happy with this purchase

Perfect
This was exactly what I wanted in a jacket. Has everything I want and more. It's not as warm as I want but riding with the liner in 50 and above at thruway speed is nice an warm. I bought a XL and I'm a 46 in chest. Should of bought a L for a better fit. But no complaints other then to many pockets. I have so much junk in the pockets I have to clean them out once a week. But all round great jacket

Got my jacket today
First thing the hi vis yellow is hi vis yellow it practically glows in the dark its that bright. I'm 6 ft 2 274, and the XXL fits me very well. Should be room for an extra warm liner or two for the cold Iowa winters. The double zipper one word wierd and a little annoying to get it seated right. All in all this jacket should work very well for fall winter for me. I can' wait to try it out.

Great jacket for the price
Disclaimer: this is the first decent motorcycle jacket I have owned. I bought this jacket because of the features, good reviews, and great price. I have worn it for over 5,000 miles, including a 2,500 mile trip, from 28 degrees to 85 degrees F, and it has met my expectations in every way. It is warm when you need warmth and well ventilated when you need cooling off. The list of features for a jacket in this price range is impressive (though I will never zip off the sleeves or use the water reservoir). It's protection and durability is outstanding, but as a result it is a little heavy whereas more expensive jackets are undoubtedly lighter in weight. Like other reviews have noted, it can be a hassle to insert the insulated and waterproof liners, struggling with all the zippers and velcro. But that just means it takes 8 minutes to switch out layers when more expensive jackets might take only 3 minutes. If you have the budget then you can afford a more expensive jacket; otherwise I recommend this one very highly.
