Fit of these jackets is pretty standard. Use the chart below to select a jacket size based upon what you would normally wear in men’s clothing. The size Med and XL fit Huey and Dewey very nicely!
The taper of this jacket is about average (meaning how much smaller the waist/belly is than the chest), and will be great for nearly any type of street rider. Joe Rocket’s sizing chart lists the recommended waist range. The jacket has a lot of waist size adjustment. If you have a bit of a belly, you can check that too. The max belly for any given size is about 6” less than the stated chest size. Just throw a tape measure around yourself and check your chest and belly against the chart info.
Our Two Cents
The limited edition Fallout jacket from Joe Rocket has reinforced impact areas and high quality armor combining to make a great mesh/textile jacket. There is something to be said for simplicity when it comes to motorcycle jackets (IMHO), and for that reason, I really like a style like this. The partial mesh/partial textile construction will strike a balance and be comfortable in all but the coldest or hottest conditions, and without a lot of fuss involving liners, panels, etc. The jacket does have a simple vest-type thermal liner than can be used or removed depending on the temperature outside. The jacket is also comfortable to wear and move around in. The jacket has strategically tailored “flex” zones with pliable material for a greater level of mobility and comfort than in some other models. These flex panels have over 8” of articulating material for upper torso and arm mobility. These flex zones cut down on the bulk of the jacket for a trim fit. Another innovation is the new “front pull” waist adjuster; instead of the rider forcing his arms towards his back to snug the straps, he’s now pulling forward, making the system far more user friendly (nice idea). I’ll leave the question of styling to you since that is a personal preference issue. Suffice it to say that this jacket does definitely have styling! Take the “View Larger Images” link above to see the jacket’s features, the vest liner, armor AND of course you can see how the jacket fit on our MG Fit Test mannequins.
