Joe Rocket Mesh Motorcycle JacketHaving lived in Arizona for over 4 decades, I know a little something about heat. Having been a motorcyclist for almost as long, I know a little something about hot weather gear. I don't know if Joe Rocket invented the armored mesh jacket, but they are at least indelibly linked. Joe Rocket even named its high-airflow jacket after the capital of my state. The Phoenix 5.0 is the latest incarnation of Rocket's mesh attire.

Okay -- nothing protects like armored leather. However, if that leather is hanging in your closet because it's too hot to wear, then it's only protecting its hanger. That's where armored mesh comes in. The 5.0 is built of a free-flowing heavy mesh for mega-cooling. I have even heard motorcyclists contend that the turbulent air inside a mesh jacket is more cooling than straight airflow with no jacket. For protection, the Phoenix comes with CE-approved armor in the arms and shoulders. The back pad is only dual-density foam, but it's replaceable with CE armor as well.

The jacket is made more versatile by the inclusion of a removable waterproof liner (that can be worn alone). It has the requisite pockets and reflective accents included in its design. It is also quite adjustable both in the body and in the arms.

What you get in the Joe Rocket Phoenix 5.0 is a bit of solid protection that you will actually wear through the dog days of summer.
