I replaced a Joe Rocket jacket that was 11 years old. This jacket has all the same features for half the price. I've only had a chance to wear it once so far and I love it. I used it without the heavy liner and was still warm enough in the early morning temps around 40-50 deg on the highway. It was also comfortable on the way home in the 70-80 deg range in the afternoon. I was a little concerned about their sizing being different from other manufacturers. I normally wear a medium, but the chart said small. The small fits perfect. This jacket is a bit bulky feeling, but most of them are until you get used to them.
Great pants for fit but zippers and velcro closings don't last
Bought these pants about 2 years ago. Looking to buy again as there are very few hi-viz pants in the marketplace. They fit well but almost from the beginning the velcro ankle closures wouldn't grip. Over the past year the zippers have become increasingly a challenge to the point that as I look at riding this fall i have to replace the pants (the zippers no longer work below the knee). Wish I could get more durable hi-viz pants.
On my first pair a zipper broke after several months and at first I was bummed-but the Velcro is so good the zip wasn't really necessary so I just kept wearing them for 3 more years until the lining wore out. I commute to work every day rain or shine and need waterproof boots and wear a size 14 so I bought a new pair.Great boots-almost no break-in and very comfortable.Wore them in the rain the other day-no leaks. Will probably buy another pair when these wear out.
