Well, I don't own one (but how I would love too), but I did sport for an extended period of time one night, and I have to say the fit was awsome. It breaths very nice too.

I have a Joe Rocket Textile AMA Matt Mlaiden replica jacket... fits great, vents great in the hotter weather and keeps me warm in the cooler weather... I am happy with it. But I have seen the jacket your referring too and that is one gorgeous jacket... I was actually thinking bout getting that seeing as I want to have leathers too for drag racing and maybe a track day.

I don't know about their jackets, but if it helps I have a pair of JR Meteor boots and they are incredibly comfortable and seem to be durable and sturdy.

I don't have that specific jacket, but collectively in our household we have about 6 various JR jackets (mesh & leather) as well as a variety of JR gloves, tank bags and boots.

Overall, I've been very happy with them. They're very comfy, the fit is very consistent from one jacket to the next (i.e. if you take a particular size in mesh, you'll wear that same size in leather, etc). Fit is a bit roomier than more race-inspired lines like Alpinestars, but it's not baggy.

My jackets have all held up very well; my only complaint with JR gear in general is with the mesh/textile gloves, which just don't seem to hold up for very long (my leather gauntlets have been great, however).

JR stuff is decent. I've got a meshie and a textile jacket, gauntlet gloves, and a tank bag. I think they've revised their sizing recently. I had to get a bigger size a few years ago when I bought mine because their sleeves were a little short. But I think they've started making the sleeves a little longer.


For ANY piece of gear....it's best to try it on rather than buy blindly. But if you can't....look at their size chart and try to find the closest size. ANd find a place that will exchange sizes for free.

I have JR leathers. They're the only affordable set I could find that were cut to fit me properly. I was going to get Alpinestars, but if I got a size big enough for my chest, the waist was way too big, on the order of 6"+.

The fit & finish on them is great. I have no complaints.

I have the same leathers, and agree, they were affordable, quality, and fit great.
I also have a JR mesh jacket for summer, which is awesome, and the gf has a JR Textile jacket that she likes as well.
