I've been wearing Joe Rocket kit for 20 years - A Ballistic 5.0 Jacket and Pants - and it was finally time to replace them - after 20 years, zippers were staring to fail and material was starting to wear out. So - I guess we start with quality - day in and day out wearing from early Spring to late Fall - for 20 years builds loyalty. The new jacket - is comfortable - is packed with features - and upgrades - unsurprising after 20 years of design mods. The fit is good - I wear a small on a 5'7" /160 lbs frame - it's warm for early Spring and late Fall riding - but has a great ventilation system - that's way easier to use than the 5.0 model. Padding/Armour in all the right places - looking forward to wearing this jacket out too!
