I'm sick of the zipper breaking on my Joe Rocket Blaster.

My other jacket is a Joe Rocket Phoenix, which I like, but it's mesh. Unless there's something I don't know, that thing isn't going to protect much but my back, elbows, and shoulders in a wreck. As in, it seems that mesh would shred to pieces in a slide. . ?

So, I may be looking for a new jacket and was thinking about textile. What are the pros and cons of both?

Also, I'd like to have a jacket that I could eventually zip pants to b/c I can't stand my Alpine Stars suit.

Yeah, it looks like something Trent Reznor wore on stage around 1989. lol

I'm just gonna send my Joe Rocket leather jacket back if I can and have them fix the zipper.

I got an Icon textile today, the JR Phoenix is worthless.

Joe Rocket makes nice cheap made in China products.
For few extra $ you can buy products made in America that make Joe Rocket look like crap, which include lifetime warranty :dthumb: You get what you pay for in life ;)

Here...go get one of these and you can wear any kind of jacket you want...

This armor is level 2 CE certified. put it on and you can slip a jersey on, not wilt in the sun and still be protected. I like mine

+1 on the Vansons. Don't have any since mine are Fieldsheer (which I would NOT recommend), but I have worn some and was really Wow'd. But, the price on JR is good for a low-cost solution.....

For the first time ever I agree with Jetski. I have two Joe Rocket jackets, a Blaster and a Phoenix. The blaster's zipper is screwed, so I'm gonna get that fixed. JR does make some GP grade suits, in fact I think Rossi wears one. I just haven't had good luck with their stuff.

The highest grade suits are made of kangaroo, though. $$$$$$$$$$

What roo suits do you recommend? It seems to me that online sizing charts are bs for the most part. . some of them take into account that you'll be wearing a back protector and some don't. Am I missing something?
