JR Motorcycle Jacket Review

Sometimes a motorcycle jacket just feels right, and that’s the case with Joe Rocket’s new textile UFO Solid. The cut agrees with my fairly standard built, with just the right lengths for my body and arms.

Fit customization on the Joe Rocket UFO Solid is very good, with snaps on the wrists to supplement the forearm zippers and hook-and-loop wrist closures. Additional three-position forearm snaps allows you to choose between a snug or loose fit.

Wide and long hook-and-loop straps give you the same broad range of fit at the waist. The plush collar is nice, but there is only one snapping position.

Inside the UFO Solid, there is a traditional warming quilted removable vest. A very cool(ing) feature is an interior zipper sewn to mesh that allows you to unzip the outer zipper for ventilation without the jacket flopping around-excellent. There is also zippered venting in the elbows and the sides of your back.

Storage is at a premium in this sport jacket, with just a single interior pocket to go with the two outer pockets. I do like that the outer-pocket zippers zip down to close, as there’s no chance of them accidently opening during a ride.

For safety, the Joe Rocket UFO Solid has the usual array of CE protection and a spine pad; you can add an optional CE spine protector, if desired.

Joe Rocket UFO Solid Jacket MSRP: $199.99 – $214.99
