Review: Joe Rocket Classic '92 JacketVintage Leather Looks Good –

A leather jacket is and forever will be the number one accessory for a motorcyclist. Every rider should own at least one. There are certainly a lot of options on the market, and we’re always looking for items that not only look good, but also offer protection, comfort, and a good price point. Joe Rocket’s Classic ’92 fits the bill. The 1.0 to 1.2mm drum-dyed cowhide leather is soft and doesn’t require a lengthy wear-in period. The cut is between athletic and wide, and it will fit just about every body shape. The collar, waist, and cuff are all adjustable via two button options. It doesn’t come with armor, but we highly recommend purchasing the optional elbow, shoulder, and back protectors. The zip-in quilted thermal liner keeps the cold away on early spring morning rides. When it gets hot, the liner is quickly removed for a more comfortable riding climate. There aren’t any vents on this retro-inspired jacket, but for the right season and right motorcycle, who needs them? Not us. This is the type of jacket a rider wears on his or her cruiser or vintage bike. There are two chest pockets, two on the side, two inside pockets, and our favorite, the small pocket on the right cuff for easy access to money and license.
