JoeRocket Suzuki Jacket

What do you guys think of this jacket. I am not normally one for show or anything but the wife wants me to pic this up. I found it for $300. It normally lists for $500 any opinions? It would be come the top have of a two peice suit, as in i would buy some zip in pants eventually.

Looks nice, and 40% off is a nice deal.

I like mine, its a little bling, but the venting is good in the hot weather. I paid around 300 for mine two years ago................Its has a 360 degree zipper for the pants too.

Kegger I am sure you aren't worried about the added bling considering you have the mladdin replica.
But really I think you wearing the jacket just completes the extension of the bikes graphics. Thanks for the input on the jacket keeping you cool, that is something i was thinking about considering it is leather, but i don't mind sweating. I think i will purchase it. The wife has the factory joe rocket honda womans jacket and she wanted me to get something similiar for the suzuki.

yeah i like how it looks as well. And I definetly like the price.

And if i try to rationalize.... the extra bling will make it so cagers notice me more and don't cut me off.

They didnt have the black one out yet when I got mine, after two years, its dirty as hell, but no stitching coming loose etc...........I am satified overall with it, but, thankfully, I cannot attest to its crashworthyness......I know though, that the construction is heavier than that of their speedmaster jackets.

Well I got the jacket. Quality is top notch. Wore it on the ride to work today, It is surprisingly cool, the ventilation works better then my joe rocket textile jacket. Looks like I won't be needing the textile one anymore. Damn I have been missing out for a while.

Glad you like. It was cool this morning though, the jacket still gets pretty hot when its warmer out.
