The Ballistic 7.0 is a great 3/4 length textile jacket for the touring rider that will work in a wide range of weather conditions. The jacket is 100% waterproof (well, I guess we all know no jacket is really 100% waterproof). The outer shell is a water-resistant nylon and the jacket also has a traditional nylon mesh interior lining. Between those two layers is a waterproof mid-liner. Venting is always an issue with a waterproof design and with this jacket, Joe Rocket offers large front zippers that have waterproof rubber strips that cover the zipper when closed. As I mentioned above, nothing can be completely water tight, but this approach may come as close as any. And speaking of climate control… the Ballistic 7.0 offers a great deal of climate control features. For warmer weather the jacket has sleeve vents and two large chest vents. The inner flaps of the two large chest vents can be snapped together holding them open in a manner that looks like it would be very effective (see our close-up pictures). The jacket comes with a full sleeve insulated liner that when installed should keep you warm in quite cold temperatures. This liner also has a unique elastic band around the bottom that can be used to block cold air from coming up under the jacket. The jacket comes with removable CE approved armor in the shoulders and elbows along with a backpad that can be upgraded to an optional CE approved back protector. The jacket has an adjustable waist, sleeves and wrist closures making it easy to get a good fit. There is a lot of reflective material in the front and back of the jacket increasing nighttime visibility. There are also belt loop attachments that can be used to help keep the jacket from riding up in the tuck riding position (when not zipped to pants). One last neat feature worth a mention… the jacket has a neat face shield pocket that positions an extra shield around your torso. Seems to work well.

This jacket is pretty close to new in appearance. There only some super minor little signs of prior ownership. Here is a link to our now-retired product page for this style for your reference.
