Joe Rocket Skyline 2.0 Jacket Review

The Joe Rocket Skyline 2.0 is the newest edition to be added to Joe Rocket‘s collection of officially licensed Honda Goldwing®  products.  The Skyline 2.0 uses the same FreeAir™ textile mesh outershell as the original, but features more aggressive styling and bolder reflective piping.  The Skyline 2.0 will also feature the new 6-point SureFit™ custom adjustment system, making it a much more comfortable and better fitting riding jacket than the original Skyline.   For all of those who take pride in owning a Goldwing, the Skyline 2.0 still has the large Goldwing®  logo on the rear and smaller insignia on the upper left chest of the jacket.

The Joe Rocket Skyline 2.0 has FreeAir™ mesh on the front and back of the jacket to ensure a cool flow of air continuously runs through the jacket.  Underneath the mesh outershell lies a removable waterproof liner that can be inserted when the weather takes a turn for the worst.  For protection, the Joe Rocket Skyline 2 has CE approved armor on the shoulders and elbows.  It also has a rear pocket where removable CE approved back armor can be inserted.  For increased safety, the Skyline 2 Jacket uses more reflective striping on the front, sleeves, and back than the first Skyline riding jacket.

Another area of improvement for the Skyline 2 is the use of the new 6-point SureFit™ custom adjustment system.  This system uses adjustable straps on both elbows, wrist, and sides of the lower abdomen to create a unique fit for every rider.  In addition to being comfortable, the Joe Rocket Skyline 2.0 Jacket has abundance of storage areas to keep personal items secure when riding.   These include two exterior pockets and one pocket on the inside of the jacket.  This jacket also has a microfiber pocket especially made for storing eye glasses.  New to the Skyline 2.0 edition, a special clip made for keeping your keys secure while riding exist on the inside of the jacket.  Also included with the Skyline 2.0 Jacket is an 8” zipper for attaching riding pants.   The Skyline 2.0 is the ultimate jacket for the touring rider or anyone who is proud to own a GoldWing.
