Reviews & Questions
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.
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.
Full sleeve liner.
Lots of Pockets.
Excellent collar closure and collar feel.
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.

Be prepared to be mistaken for a cop at night though...
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.
This jacket not only looks awesome, but it fits really well too (comfortable, yet form-fitting enough that it doesn't make you feel like the Michelin man). The inner liner is great - if you pull it out, you can wear it in much warmer weather comfortably. If it gets chilly, use the liner and it helps a ton.
I live in the SouthEast, and have had this jacket since October. I still have my Joe Rocket mesh jacket from before, but I hardly ever wear it unless it's 90-95+ out. This jacket does have venting, but if you close it all up, it's super wind and rain-proof. My mesh jacket, in any dribble of rain whatsoever, soaks my shirt completely.
The sleeves and waist are a nice length; feels like would offer a lot better protection in a crash. The neck is super nice in colder weather too; the lower necklines on mesh jackets can be a pin.
It's a pretty aggressive looking jacket for what it is. I went for the high-vis; it's not quite yellow but not quite green. More yellow and less green than I expected, but still not gaudy looking.
The padding is good too.
All around a super jacket for the price. Go for it. You'll need the cold and wet protection way more than super hot weather anyways where you're moving.
I'm looking to use this as a Northern California cold half of the year jacket. It will probably handle the cold fine but how about the warmer days (ends of the cold season, sporadic warm days in the middle of winter)? How warm outside could it be and still be comfortable? How warm outside could it be and still be bearable?
I ride this thing in NorCal (Oakland), and did a couple of miles in mid-30s degree weather last night with the liner in and a thermal long-sleeve beneath that- a bit chilly, but not bad at all for 15 minutes or so on the freeway on a naked bike. WIth a proper hoodie, you're OK for sure. Mine tends to get a weird draft up the back, but I think that's from the way I sit on the bike.
In warm weather, it gets pretty muggy since it's water proof. Once you're moving, it's fine and vents well. On surface streets with a full windshield, you're gonna roast quick but that's true for any jacket.
There are no expandable sections in the jacket so the only adjustment is to pull things in. I'm 5' 10" at 175# and wear a large. Most of the adjustments I've made have been one snap tighter. The waist belt adjustment is Velcro so it's infinitely adjustable. I use an electric liner which works much better the tighter it hugs your body so I don't feel the need to change any of the adjustments on the jacket once set up with the liner in. In hotter weather with the vents open the missing liner gives a lot of room to let air flow through the jacket with the vents open. I don't believe it will puff out because of the multiple adjustment points. Oh yeah, this is my 3rd Ballistic 3/Revolution jacket and I've been very happy with the quality/price comparo on every one. The only need to replace them is that I've worn them out. I have not tested the waterproof performance at this time.
Planning to get this product. Would like to know if this is waterproof 100% does it consist of thermal liner?
The shoulder armor is removable. The jacket is very comfortable for both riding and walking. The problem i have with this Jacket is that the zipper failed almost immediately. It was rather disappointing.
