Joe Rocket Mens Motorcycle Jacket Summer is all about getting on your ride and hitting those sunshiny roads. If you happen to be interested in riding with some protection though, which everyone should be, then summer can also mean sweating your bearings off inthe sweltering heat in traffic or while sitting at a stoplight that just doesn't seem to want to sense your motorcycle that day.

Joe Rocket's Phoenix 5.0 Mesh Textile Jacket is a heavy-duty, full-protection riding jacket aimed at keeping you safe while still keeping you cool.

The Phoenix has a poly/mesh shell that actually lets wind inside rather than keeping it out. If you happen to get caught in a summer deluge though, the Phoenix also comes with a removable waterproof liner.

The black jacket has a clean, non-flashy look to it. Remember, black is not the most visible color on the planet, and while the Phoenix does have a little reflective stripe, don't expect to be glowing in the dark out there. It does come equipped with C.E rated protectors in the elbows and shoulders. It also comes with a spine pad that isn't C.E rated but you can upgrade to one as the pad is removable.

So while you probably aren't going to be as cool (temperature-wise) sporting this jacket as you would be a cut-off t-shirt and shorts, it will be an improvement from the standard heavy duty jacket that only has a few zipper vents in the armpit area. Plus you can ride with an elevated level of inner peace knowing that in the unfortunate event that you happen to get up close and personal with the ground, you might just save yourself from some road burn.

You'll find a similar Joe Rocket style in their RASP armored textile jacket, too.
