Joe Rocket’s been in the motorcycle rag trade for a few decades now, so you can assume they know what they’re doing. Proof of that experience comes in their latest warm-weather offering, the nicely-priced Velocity jacket. Though it’s ultra-affordable, Joe Rocket says the garment doesn’t short you by sacrificing protection, versatility, or summer comfort.
The welcome rider-friendly features start with a FreeAir mesh torso and back reinforced with contoured armor at the shoulders and elbows, and complemented by high-density rib padding and a removable spine pad. A 6-point custom adjustment system keeps everything snug, while a removable waterproof liner serves as foul-weather backup. The Velocity also comes with 2 outside pockets, 1 inside pocket and a reflective stripe.
