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.
