    I bought my jacket in 2015 after seeing it at the January motorcycle show in Toronto. After a year of riding in cold early spring temps to the desert heat of Arizona I love this jacket. It really is waterproof in the worst rain storms and so easy to switch from DryTech shell to mesh jacket. There are lots of handy pockets and storage pouches for extra visor and quilted liner. The venting in the DryTech shell is in the arms and across the back where it should be, not on the chest. I like being able to use the DryTech outer shell as a regular rain coat when removed from the mesh jacket. Good design feature!

    My only suggestion is to make the mesh a bit larger for better air flow and put air holes in the back armor.

    I love this jacket. I used it most of last season, including touring and daily commuting for as much as the year as I can ride, and this season so far. From -5c to +30c; it’s amazingly flexible; comfortable, and well made.

    This is my second Alter Ego; I had a 10.0 from years ago, that simply wore out after many years of service and a pile of mileage. When I am ready for another new Jacket, this coat (or likely it’s replacement model) would be my first choice.

    I am not much of a person to write my reviews on products but I wanted to since I just came back from a 4518 km trip wearing this jacket and pant combo. All I can say is that it was the perfect combination. The jacket on the days when it was well above 31.5 allowed me to wear only the liner with armour. What a difference, yet when it was cool in the morning I could put the other jacket on top. Over the top, i mean it made my trip. Others within my group were not so happy with typical riding gear – one even with a bmw outfit was just cooked on those hot days. Do yourself a favor and get this two in one – it is the best value of any on the market. I have a rack of the others in my barn for sale! Well designed and extremely well priced !

    The cats meow for very hot to chilly conditions…for very hot days…40C and above I recommend a next to the skin armour gear layer for extra moisture wicking and remember to stay hydrated as you may not realize how hot it is with this jacket on…

    The Perfect all around jacket. As I am not a smaller fellow, I have worn Joe Rocket gear for many years, but as I have aged I am more concerned with comfort and safety than when I was younger. The Alter Ego jacket was purchased to replace an older Meteor that is now too big. The Meteor never felt just right, but the Alter Ego is a star. The inner “windbreaker” has all the armour and is very good when the day is hot. It does not flow so much air as my old JR mesh jacket but so long as I am not stuck in traffic, I am very happy. Add the over jacket and you get wonderful rain protection as I have proved regularly since rain clouds appear to wait for me to start a bike. There is a further thermal liner that goes inside the windbreaker, but I have not needed it yet, although I hope to be able to ride comfortably without massive bulk until later in the season as a result.

    If you only want one jacket, this is the one! Super warm, windproof and waterproof, a matter of moments to convert to a really breezy mesh jacket. And if it rains, it doesn’t leave you standing in the rain trying to insert waterproof liners, you just pop the shell back on.
    Only two gripes: the cuffs are a bit bulky with both layers on, and the arms are a bit short for me on the mesh part although they’re fine when it’s all together.
