Rocket Sonic 2 jackets - are they OK ??

  1. G'day guys,

    it's too late now because I picked one up the other day, but i was wondering if there was any opinions on the Joe Rocket Sonic 2 leather jackets ?

    I was only after an entry level jacket - I'm broke at the moment - but the Sonic 2 looked fair enough. The only thing that concerns me a little is that there's a large strip under both arms and down the sides of the body which unzips - obviously for warmer weather - and undeneath it's this mesh material. I would have thought full leather was the way to go - even in summer ?

    Anyway, I'm just curious as to weather they're any good, or if I've bought a dud. Got it from BGW. I thought it was about time I gave my mate back his RJays jacket which was a few years old.......and which i loved wearing.


  2. suspect the mesh is abrasion resistant and its in a low impact area so there shouldn't be a problem. you'll appreciate it when it gets hot. some of us wear full mesh jackets in the summer.
