Hey guys this is Reuben with Competition Accessories welcome to our review of the Joe Rocket Alter Ego 3.0 Jacket now sit back and relax because this one is a little bit more in depth then our other jackets and that's basically because your getting two jackets in one with the Alter Ego 3.0. This jacket does retail for about 275$ so when you compare it to other textile jackets or other mesh jackets you might find that's a little bit higher then average however you are essentially getting two jackets in one, one that will be functional all year around meaning its not just functional in certain climates this jacket is going to be a fully featured waterproof textile jacket if you need it to be if it has insulation it can be a cool mesh jacket if you want it to be on those hot summer rides so if you really need just a do it all jacket the Alter Ego 3.0 is a great jacket , now lets get into some of the features. First of all for adjustment of fit obviously this jacket has a little bit more complexity to it there's more layers going on, this jacket that I'm wearing is an extra large which is the size that i normally wear and with all the layers in place with what i have now. i would say its true to size maybe slightly on the snug side compared to some other jackets even from Joe Rocket and that's just because there's so many layers going on but there's nothing that's binding up on me i wouldn't say i need to go up a size at all just bear in mind with everything installed it has more material and then once you've got it all taken apart its probably going to be more loose. You can also see the adjustments here the sleeve cuffs is a simple Velcro closure that allows you to snug the sleeves up, there are also waist adjustment bands built in on each side so you can tighten up the jacket at the base so you can keep it nice and snug to prevent wind or water to come up underneath and the outer shell of this jacket is a rock text waterproof shell, you have waterproof built in throughout the jacket here and then again there's more waist adjustment bands or kind of a midriff at the middle section but because their are so many layers you want that flexibility of fit you want to be able to adjust the jacket. Were going to go ahead and open the jacket up , you see they used snaps over the main zipper here its a storm flap , and then if i open up the main zipper its just one main zipper to get in and out of the jackets so that's a really nice feature. That way your not unzipping 3 or 4 layers to get in and out of the jacket but depending on how you have the jacket set up you'll be able to get it on and off real easy. Before i do open it all the way up and take it off to show you how to convert it all even if you just have the whole jacket put together and you need a little bit of ventilation they do give you that option so you do have two zippered vents on the chest here its going to allow plenty of air flow through the torso obviously not nearly enough for super hot summer days but you know if your wearing a jacket and you need a little bit extra air flow open those up for a quick adjustment so there's actually an exhaust vent on the back of the jacket here so you can always open that up to allow warm air to escape. I'm going to go ahead and remove the jacket and show you basically all the different features here. You've basically got 3 layers to this jacket, you have the outer shell which is waterproof rock tex material you do have some ballistic style nylon on the impact areas they give you turtle shell style CE approved armor in the shoulders and elbows of the jacket as well as a duel density back pad, this is that rear exhaust vent i was telling you about you can unzip that and that's going to allow air to flow out that back of the jacket. The collar is lined with some nice soft fabric its not going to rub you raw or be uncomfortable and then on the inner jacket they used like a neoprene style material so no matter what stage your wearing your going to be comfortable. The thermal qualities of this jacket are the one area where its probably not quite as heavy duty as if you went with a full on textile touring jacket like the Joe Rocket ballistic is a good example of that they will give you a fully sleeved quilted thermal liner , this jacket uses a fleece style vest liner so your not getting full thermal down the length of the arms but again your getting better versatility you could always wear a sweater or something else underneath if its extra cold out. Lets go ahead and remove that inner liner at a table back here so that you can kinda follow along with different layers, but that inner liner is basically removed with one zipper all the way around you see how quick and easy that is to remove very simple. There's the duel density foam back pad we were talking about you'll see they have ventilation holes in this you can actually feel its a substantial back piece its not just a thin piece of foam like what is included on a lot of other jackets there are some belt loop attachments at the base of the jacket here so you can always attach that to your belt loops and then were going to go ahead and pull the jacket apart to see how you convert this jacket from full textile to mesh. Usually the best thing to do is put it on its front , there are two zippers that run down each side and that's your main zipper here were going to go ahead and zip that its the same style zipper and whats really neat about this jacket is they actually give you (better go ahead and pull the sleeves out) some Velcro tabs with some loops that are going to help hold the sleeves in place when your getting the jacket on and off its all put together. If you undo those pull the inner jacket out and whats really neat is this jacket the outer jacket doesn't have the armor in it or anything its just a shell so you can actually roll this up real nice and tight like that and then they actually give you a zippered pouch so you can see there's a zipper that goes along here and you can actually roll this whole jacket up so that its inside of this pouch here , you get the idea its pretty quick and easy to do. If you wanted to, say your on a long trip or tour where your going to encounter lots of climates, you know some times when your out west the climate can change very quickly and easily especially when going through the mountains and getting in higher elevation it can get cold you might encounter rain. You could stash this in the built in pocket that's built into the jacket itself or store it in a saddle bag it even has a waist belt or a carry strap it has some elastic to it but with the strap here it snaps so you can take this with you really easily. This is the outer waterproof part of the jacket so its fairly compact to have a motorcycle jacket in there and then on the inside is what we were mentioning earlier you have a full mesh jacket so this is the inside of the Alter Ego 3.0 , I'm going to go ahead and put this back on so that you can see what it looks like but this is essentially a whole other jacket that you will be able to wear for warm weather so you can go ahead and zip it up with the main zipper there and your going to have plenty of air to flow through this. Again comfort features have zippered openings here you have the Velcro loop that they use to hold the sleeves in place this actually doubles in function it also helps to custom fit the sleeve cuffs on the mesh jacket when your using that jacket by itself you can see the armor is accessible through a zippered pocket on the outside and you can see the armor right there from inside the sleeve. Again the armor and all the protection is actually built into the mesh jacket. Snap sleeve take up is attached to the forearm here to hold that armor in place and ill give you a good 360 here so you can see what this jacket looks like. You have some reflective material built in across the back of the jacket so for night time if your just wearing the mesh jacket its going to flow a lot of air through it so if you have a fleece style vest liner that you can install inside of this that is not going to block a lot of wind its going to definitely keep you warmer if you install the outer layer as well you have a waterproof shell so very very versatile set up. Again that's the Alter Ego 3.0 its available in a couple different colors they also announced its going to be available in HI-Vis soon you can check our website for that its Competition Accessories .com
Information and Details about the Joe Rocket Alter Ego 3.0 Jackets
made by Joe Rocket
The Joe Rocket Alter Ego 3 Jackets is a replacement to the loved Alter Ego 2 jacket. The new jacket does not have all the same features as the 2.0. Notably the 2.0 had zip of panels to reveal mesh panels under it. The 3.0 version has a complete outer waterproof shell that zips off to reveal a mesh jacket under it. The new 3.0 Alter Ego Jacket does still offers the versatility needed to handle most weather changes and is a good all-in-one option for a jacket.

The Rocket Alter Ego 3.0 Jackets use the authentic MetaSport II system. This system in the jacket is the all weather riding solution you've been waiting for. 100% WATERPROOF treated outer layer which is easily removed to reveal the fully armored high-flow FreeAir MESH jacket beneath. This jacket beneath is similar to the Joe Rocket Phoenix 5 Jackets but has armor that is removable from the outside of the inner jacket. So the inside is clean and comfortable. Inside the inner jacket of the Alter Ego 3 is a thermal vest that is perfectly good for wearing by itself when not riding. All in all this is a great new addition to the Rocket Line.. You can't go wrong with the Alter Ego 3 Jacket

Sizing Note: The Tall sizes ( Black only ) have about 1.5 inch longer sleeves and torso than the normal sizes and the sizing seems to be accurate based on our test compared to the chart. So we recommend you order based on the chart and if you are between sizes go up.

The latest evolution of the MetaSport II System — Truly the best of both worlds!

    Versatile Jacket - foothills   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Versatile for various weather conds, Comfortable, well made.
    Cons: [None]

    Fantastic jacket. I have the high viz yellow. Have used it from 37 degrees with all three layers and up to 98 degrees with just the mesh. When it's time to clean the mesh jacket, just take out the back protector and throw it in the machine.

    good jacket - Dan K   IL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: 2 jackets in one
    Cons: none so far

    Basically this is 2 jackets in one. There is the outer layer which is easily folded up into a pouch, the fleece vest, which gives minimal protection, and then the joe rocket phoenix like mesh layer. I use the mesh a lot during the summer. It picks up the wind well and keeps me cool while moving. I haven't tried the waterproofness of the outer shell yet, however, the seams and zippers all look like they are waterproof. The fit worked according to the sizing chart. I am around 4648 chest, and my wais is around 3638. XL fits me fine. The armors are removable and don't float around too much. There are a lot of zippers to help with air flow.

    K. Smalley  
    Great Jacket. I have used many others over the last 20 years, but this is one of the best. The Outer shell folds into the storage pouch. The fleece liner can be added to the jacket either just when you are using the mesh or when you have the outer shell on too. Overall this jacket is very versatile and is a winner here in VA.

    Nice Jacket, not perfect - bdog   AL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Comfortable, adjustable, versatile
    Cons: waterproof wears off, only fleece vest liner

    This jacket is great in that it will do everything, but be warned that some NikWax or similar waterproofer will be needed.Other than that I've ridden with the jacket down to 16 degrees with only a light sweatshirt under it comfortably. The collar is a little loose, so you'd want to have a balaclava or neck gaiter or something similar to fill the gap. Good buy, just use a good waterproofer.

    not waterproof - dk   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: lots of layers
    Cons: not waterproof

    it's not waterproof. kinda disappointed since it does bill itself as waterproof and has reinforced zippers. Other than that I love it.

    nice jacket - Shane D   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: all the options you have with it
    Cons: The fact it is not waterproof

    I bought this jacket so I would not have to buy a few different jackets. I live in upstate NY and ride from spring to fall. In that time there are many weather changes from day to day and even from morning till night. This keeps me from having to have a few different jackets with me at certain times of the year. I may take off during the day when it is 80 degrees and warm where the mesh jacket is great. But by the time I ride home later in the evening it has cooled down and a little cold for just the mesh so I can through the outer shell over it. The only complaint I have about this jacket is that it is not waterproof. I found this out on a ride home one day. In fact it does not take long for the water to soak through the jacket. I would have hoped it would take time if it was not water proof.
