Joe rocket comet jacket

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' started by disassembled, Feb 8, 2007.

  1. I just picked up a Joe rocket comet jacket on sale for about $250.

    Liked the look of this one in the shops because i'm used to wearing leathers, but I wanted something a bit better suited to all weather riding.

    It's got some (i'm not quite sure on this) reinforced leather sections on the elbows and shoulders, but it's still a textile jacket. Also has that heavy, armoured kinda feel to it like a leather jacket.

    All in all it seems to be a decent jacket, will know more after a few more km's, but thumbs up to this so far! :D

    Only gripe I have is that it's a little lacking in ventilation, but i'll live with that. Better than my old leather jacket.
