No experience with that jacket, but I've had a Joe Rocket textile for the past 7-8 years. No complaints at all. Lots of ventilation when you want it, stitching still holding up after several washes.

Funny its the stiching that turned me away from joe rocket jackets. I got a phoenix, and the velcro had to be re sawn on there.

I got a Phoenix too. It's not bad but I'd much rather have leather.

for textile, alpinestars makes some nice jackets (like the S-MX Air Flo, I think it's called). They make some nice leathers too, and at a good price for the quality.

I just got a nice textile nylon joe rocket jacket with a back protector. I like it. Its nice and warm, wind proof, and water resistant. I've been also using it as a winter jacket as it is very warm and comfortable.

I own this jacket: http://www.newenough.com/joe_rocket_...acket_page.htm

Unfortunately I paid $100 shipped, but that beats $300+ for other jackets.

Anyway, I love it. With the liner, my chest/arms stay warm down to around 30F, and with out the liner I stay cool up to the high 80's at any decent speed. Haven't crash tested it yet, but I dont plan to. The leather and stitching all seems top notch.

A friend went down at about 65 with a Joe Rocket Textile jacket on and it didn't do to bad. His had two different types of material. The thicker material and armor around the arms and shoulders held up real good. The thinner stuff that was between shoulders and back didn't do so well and he got some rash on the back of one shoulder. I'd say it did its job though.

I've been using the Meteor jacket for a few months now with no real complaints. Don't really care for the sleeve adjustments though b/c the snaps seem to undo pretty easily. I'll be riding and notice that one or both of the upper sleeve adjustments have come undone.
