Joe Rocket Radar Dark Leather Jacket Review

There's nothing like the style and protection that a good leather jacket offers. There's also nothing like the airflow and lightweight nature of a mesh jacket. Can you imagine having both a leather and mesh jacket in one? It's called the Joe Rocket Radar Dark Leather Jacket. This is a street based three-season hybrid jacket with stealthy black styling. This is a very versatile Joe Rocket jacket and definitely will rank high in the bang for the buck category.

Check out our Joe Rocket Radar Leather Jacket Review:



The Joe Rocket Radar is constructed of a combination of 1.2mm leather and Free Air™ mesh in the shell. The leather is strategically placed in areas prone to impacts and sliding; these vulnerable areas are the shoulders, elbows, back and chest. The areas of the jacket that are less vital get the breathable mesh material. These consist of the stomach, the inside of the arms, and the area around the collar. Joe Rocket incorporated CE rated armor in the shoulders and elbows of the jacket. There is a non CE rated spine pad but this can be removed and replaced with a CE rated back protector. The Radar also has a race styled GP-hump that will provide some extra back protection but in the event of a wreck it will help elevate your head some you helmet wont skip and drag on the road. The hump will also provide some additional aerodynamics.

Joe Rocket did a great job packing this jacket full of features you don't see on every jacket. The liner of the jacket is a removable windproof liner. The liner isn't thermal or waterproof so on colder mornings you will need some kind of mid layer and on damp days you will get wet. When you take out the liner the jacket will loosen up a bit thus Joe Rocket put snaps on the arms and waist to help tighten it back up. A snap close collar gives an extra styling touch and aids in comfort. Finally there's a set of jeans loop connectors
to keep this jacket from riding up when getting in the race position.

Sizes go from 38 to 56 and this jacket fits on the larger side. For the Radar Dark, your only color scheme option is the stealthy black on black.
