Anybody got one of these Joe rocket phoenix jacket 3.0. It's an older version of the jacket but in good condition. If you have one would you recommend it?

We wear one and find it satisfactory, but we use ours only in warm/hot weather. Although the thing has an inner liner, we have never used it. We switch to a leather jacket when the temps go below 80F. Our Joe Rocket Phoenix is now three years old and is used quite a bit. It seems to be holding up well.

We trudge on.

The jacket is reasonably priced and works well above 25C/77F. Below this I wear leather. Without the liner it flows air really well. There is reasonable forearm/elbow as well as back padding. There are adjustments for the forearm and waist. It would have been better to get a light colour. Black gets hot.

While I have not crashed tested any of my gear, I feel it protects me reasonably well, but not as well as leather. I have seen crash photos of some who have gone down and the mesh keeps the armour in place.

I have a Phoenix though I'm not 100% sure which version it is. I would recommend it. Air flow is good and works well in cooler weather with the liner.
