Our Two Cents
This jacket has recently gone on sale. We bought all the black jackets at a special price since black has been the best seller by far. Take advantage while this inventory lasts. My comments from ‘06: Somebody in the design department at Joe Rocket really took on a challenge with the design of the Alter Ego. Not many jackets can claim to be “all season”, but this one comes about as close as any out there. The heart of the jacket is very much like a Phoenix 3.0, a free air jacket with textile overlays on the shoulders and elbows, along with removable armor and a Dry Tech liner. This combination will cover very hot to cooler weather with ease. Then there is a removable outer shell which, when added, makes the Alter Ego very much like a textile sport jacket, similar to the Meteor 4.0 jacket. With the textile outer shell added this jacket will be comfortable in colder temperatures, and with the added wind block properties with the Dry Tech liner installed, it provides multiple layers to keep the chill out. For convenience while traveling, the outer shell includes a nifty storage pack built in, so you can store the outer shell and Dry Tech liner neatly in your luggage, tank bag, etc, or even in a pinch, you could wear it on your back like a back pack. It all seems to come apart and go together well. And there you have it—one jacket for all seasons.
