I've always been a Honda fan, probably stemming back to the first motorcycle I ever owned. It wasn't the prettiest thing out on the streets, but I had a blast on it, and it ran well with very little maintenance. For as much as I love Hondas, though, you can't ...
Joe Rocket Leather Motorcycle Jackets
Joe Rocket is one of the most popular apparel brands in the street bike industry. They’ve successfully struck licensing deals with Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Honda to bring co-branded Joe Rocket jackets and other apparel to the market.
While they’re probably best known for their jackets, Joe Rocket also makes gloves, helmets, boots, and leather suits, as well as casual apparel such as t-shirts and hats.
Joe Rocket leather jackets strike a unique balance of cost, style, materials, and protection.
The cost tends to be on the high end for most motorcycle jackets. Want to spend $500 on a jacket? You can find a Joe Rocket that costs that much! Of course, many will argue that you get what you pay for, and with Joe that’s no exception.
The materials are typically of the high-end variety, designed to protect and to be quite durable. The styling is certainly open to taste, but most would say that they provide a distinctive, unique, and classy look.
As far as protection goes, most jackets come equipped with the European Union’s CE seal of approval for their reinforced padding and the option to add more padding as well. The downside of this, of course, is that Joe Rocket jackets can be a bit stiffer than many other brands and take a bit of getting used to.
