Men's Atomic 5.0 Jacket Black/Silver
ITEM CODE: PG38740
|I was looking for a mild weather jacket with high visibility that wasn't hi gh viz green. I have several other jackets, so I'll compare it to those. The light panels are large enough front and back that the jacket gives me what I wanted in terms of visibility. The jacket is sized a little large. I vary between L and XL. I got this in L, and it was slightly roomy, but not enough that I would go down to a M. The jacket is plenty warm enough for riding in 50 degree weather with a light turtleneck. I love the fact that Joe Rocket puts the shoulder and elbow armor in through exterior pockets. In my other jackets, the armor always seems to get twisted while I'm putting on the jacket, and I've just gotten used to untwisting the armor being part of the process of putting on a motorcycle jacket. With this jacket, I just put on the jacket, like a regular jacket. The product description doesn't indicate that the spine armor is CE rated. The spine armor that came with my jacket is stamped with a CE rating symbol. The only negative is that for some reason that jacket I received smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. I don't know if that was from Wingstuff's side or Joe Rocket's side. It doesn't really matter, because after one ride the smell was completely gone, but I'd never had that experience with a jacket before. Overall, it's a terrific jacket, super comfortable, and seems like it offers good protection.|
