Almost great, but not.
Loads of practical features, but a few unfortunate quirks. 1) There’s no air flow from elbows down, so super sweaty forearms. 2) Almost the entire left half of jacket front has blocked air flow from the thick ipod and glasses pockets. Open-weave mesh jackets are for flowing air, so why not use a pocket material that vents? The two lower "hand warmer" pockets vent just fine. No actual hand warming, which is a good thing. 3) The sleeve adjustment snaps give limited sizing options and are clunky. They should be Velcro like the adjustments at the waist. 4) The liner is well made but too complicated. I’ve never understood rainproof liners. It stops raining, you remove the liner, now you have a soggy jacket to wear. It should have a simple wind-breaking liner for chilly mornings. Rain suits are for rain. 5) It has sleeves for Popeye, shoulders for Olive Oil. The sleeve at the bicep is wider than the opening where the sleeve meets the body. Nobody is going to get their arm through that small opening, then fill out the baggy sleeve. I’m no muscle man, and I feel the jacket tugging at my arm pits when riding. Perhaps they forgot to allow for the shoulder armor. And yes, I have the correct size for my build (Medium - 41” chest, 5’9”, 160 lbs, 33” waist). If these 5 issues don't bother you, you'll likely love this jacket.

A good sub-$200 Hi-Viz jacket
For the short and sweet:
The Good:
-Mesh breathes well
-Quality construction
-Easily accessible armor
-Solid and usable rain liner
-Price

The Bad:
-JR sizing and fit
-JR proprietary snaps/buttons
-Black textile is HOT
-Cuffs difficult to tighten with gloves on
-Almost no reflective material
-Headphone cord hole on the outside of the front pocket

For the details;
I want to say up front that despite the gripes I detail below, I do like this jacket, and I wear it daily. I think for the price point, it's of good quality, and I do recommend it, with modifications (for safety). But I am critical of my gear and I think it's fair to detail the good and bad. So here goes...
First, I don't understand JR's sizing. This is my 5th JR jacket in about 15 years, and it's always the same. I'm fit, but not overly muscular; 5'7", 155lbs with 29" waist (32" hips), 32" long arms and normally wear a size 39" coats (formal wear). So I ordered a small based off the sizing chart and prior experience. I usually have no problems sizing up with more expensive competitors, but in typical JR fashion, this jacket is tight in the shoulders, fine in the sleeves, average in the chest, loose at the waist/belly, and tight at the hips. The length is right, and the zippers line up nicely with my JR Ion mesh pants. It's not uncomfortable by any means, but slightly restrictive in full range of motion (shoulders).
Being that the heat index exceeds 100 degrees daily here for about eight months a year, I REALLY wish companies would just leave black off Hi-Viz mesh jackets, and this jacket is no exception. The black shoulders do get hot, and the forearms BAKE, especially in traffic. Almost unbearably so. I do not tighten the cuffs because of this. The forearm material gets so hot in the sun that I have to leave these as loose as possible to keep it off my skin, and to let air in to breathe. I hate this, as I know the forearms of the jacket would easily roll up if I go down. If moving at speeds above 35mph, enough air is coming in and flowing through that my shoulders can cool off, but not so much for the forearms. I'm left wishing the black panels on the Ion Hi-Viz were either yellow or gray like my gray Ion mesh pants.
And one last note on the forearm/cuffs; the little Velcro flap that closes the cuff is in a difficult place (backside) to adjust with gloves on, and doesn't hold if you try to preposition prior to zipping closed. If it were on the top and bigger it would be much easier to use, and would no doubt hold better.
The zippers are fine on this jacket, and all the stitching seem to be well done. But those worthless JR snaps/buttons are just as bad on this jacket as they were (replaced with much better quality) on my Ion pants. I have no confidence that will hold in a crash, as they so easily pop open under very little strain. My concern there is that the armor in the elbows will move when the buttons pop. So, like my Ion pants, I will be replacing those very soon.
The pockets in the jacket are fine, although the rear pocket isn't very big, so I don't use it. I really wish it were big enough to store the rain liner, as that would be very useful. And I also don't understand why the headphones cord would be routed through the outside of the front of the jacket and be completely conspicuous, and flapping in the wind. I cut a little hole on the inside of the jacket and route the cord under an arm and out the back of the neck. Maybe I'm in the minority on this one.
Last gripe; If you are buying a Hi-Viz jacket it's because you want to be seen day AND night, and/or are trying to meet military requirements. So JR, why is there so little reflective material on this jacket? That proprietary material in the elbows and shoulders that is supposed to "light up" when hit with light is a gimmick. My wife followed me home in her car for 20 miles through town and a two lane back road the other night and barely noticed it. And she was looking for it, as we previously had a conversation about it, where I expressed my hopes that it worked as advertised (and showed her the JR website pictures). She said that it didn't look anything like the pictures advertised. So for my brothers and sisters in arms, the reflective material isn't up to mil spec (to be fair, JR doesn't advertise it as such).
To finish on a high note, I really like that the armor is easily accessible via zipped pockets on the outside of the jacket. I REALLY like this. This is a much more comfortable configuration than inside armor pockets because there are no seems or velcro patches/strips rubbing and scratching on the inside of the sleeves. It's very nice to have the liner between the armor pocket and your skin, instead of the pocket between the liner and your skin.
As I previously stated, I am happy with this jacket at this price point. I will be changing the snaps for stronger ones because I feel this is a safety issue, but that is an inexpensive change, and easily accomplished. With that change, I recommend this jacket to anyone looking for a sub-$200 Hi-Viz jacket.

Great jacket for visibility
This is my first motorcycle jacket and I purchased it to be seen while on the road. It most certainly does a fine job in that respect! I have noticed that cars seem to yield at intersections far more than quickly while wearing this jacket.

It also fits me quite well (size medium, 5-10", 170 lbs) and is far better aerodynamically than my old windbreaker. It is a bit heavier than a standard, non-motorcycle jacket, but not really all that uncomfortable, even when not riding.

It does not have a lot of pockets like other similar jackets, but I really do not carry a lot of things when I ride. I do like the cellphone pocket as it is located high enough to hear my phone ring over the road noise. The padded eyeglass pocket is not super large, but it works fine for storing my sunglasses.

I also like the key holder clip on the inside of the right lapel. I normally only carry a single cycle key with me when riding, so keeping track of something this small can sometimes be a tricky. The clip makes it easy to retrieve and stow.

Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase and highly recommend this jacket.

High-Visibility / Basic Protection
Riding to work one day, I saw a rider wearing something like this and was convinced in my mind that "this" jacket (he might've been wearing a different brand) was the one I wanted: one with high visibility material already sewn into it. Once I got my MSF course lined up, I went ahead and purchased it.

I'm 5' 4" at 120 lbs and completed my 2-day training in a size Medium. The jacket fit somewhat loose in the arms and body so I opted to get it exchanged for a size Small later on which is a bit more secure and doesn't move around as much. The "belt straps" on this jacket are also at the right length now.

I'm not sure I fully agree with the overall Protection rating, though it may be skewed by the Durability aspect. Keep in mind this is not leather and has minimal (if any) abrasion protection. It does, however, have thorough (wide-spanning) armor coverage where it's used, especially in the elbows which actually extends down the lowside of your forearm and is not merely just an elbow pad.

A special point of emphasis, however, is that it does NOT have chest protection. If you fall face first, you have about 2 layers of mesh between you and the asphalt. I would advise some kind of augmentation, such as an armored vest underneath.

Moving on from that, having the ability to "modify" the jacket with removable liners (the rain liner and the insulated/cold weather liner) is a nice feature. Without both liners, it makes for a pretty comfortable, breezy ride in 80+ degree whether, albeit somewhat chilly in the mornings/evenings even during the summer. Simple solution: put the liners back in and it's nice and warm again :) On that note, though, having both liners in, I don't seem to really notice much "climate" discomfort riding; maybe it's because I'm more focused on the road than my comfort...

To summarize everything and my [limited] experience with it so far, yet as a "watchperson" of sorts, I would recommend this jacket if you want people to see you, especially if you don't have the money to shell out for proper jacket protection. I've tested this jacket several times now, watching people at intersections very closely, waiting for me to come through before making their turn. Granted, I also use my high beams during the day as well, but I've also ridden at night with these and while the jacket doesn't "glow in the dark" like they seem to advertise with INNOLITE, that high visibility mesh on the back lights right up like a triangle when a car's headlights hit it (as I've been told).

Some people only feel protected when they're wearing the hard shell armor comp jackets, or the $700 Alpinestars jackets, or the $1,400 helmets, etc. The truth of the matter is, regardless of how imperative it is for "protection," it will take many of us a considerable amount of time before being able to afford that kind of gear. Say what you want; I think this jacket provides a reasonable sense of protection, not so much in the armor aspect, but because people can see you in it, and if that's what it takes to avoid > 0% of casualties and I can afford it now, I'll take it.

Excellent jacket.
Airflow is spectacular, and combination of zipper and snaps at the end of the sleeves is very tidy. It enables you to get on 1/2 gauntlet or full size gauntlet gloves on with a minimum of fuss.

My only grips is that the sleeves are a bit long.

great summer jacket that fits a tad small
i purchased another joe rocket jacket a few months back and it fits perfectly, this jacket fits a little tighter, but thats my motivation to lose a few pounds.

its working great in the summer heat.

The shoulder pads sometimes dig into my shoulder but thats a minor issue solved by moving the pads around.

overall its a great jacket that i hope lasts quite a few summers.

Bought jacket to wear for summer commuting. Still hot when standing still in high temp high humidity, but that is to be expected. Can tell you the rain liner works well.

Good jacket at a good price
I purchased this in hi-viz yellow for a long road trip. This jacket is quite well thought out, it is well built and it looks good. It is a step up from a previous Joe Rocket design I have been wearing for a couple of years. The size is correct and I have enough room to wear a warm layer underneath even with the rain liner and insulation installed.

I was riding for 10 hour days in 96 degree heat with an underarm our shirt underneath this jacket and stayed comfortable. When it rained, I dried out in no time which was what I had in mind when I paired this combination. I did not use the waterproof liner at these temps and chose instead to let the moisture cool me off as I rode.

It has a mesh fabric backing so your skin is not in direct contact with the plastic feeling rain liner which feel much better than my older jacket without this feature.
