Joe Rocket Blaster 4.0 Perforated Leather Jacket

After I decided to return my Fieldsheer Mesh jacket (did not fit that great and was missing a piece of armor), I looked around on Dennis Kirks website and spotted a Joe Rocket Blaster 4.0 Jacket. I liked the way it looked and they had it in my size. So I decided to give it a try. It is scheduled to be here on Monday. Have any of you all had any experience with these or any other perforated leather jackets?

Thats another sharp looking jacket. (may even be a little less "power-ranger" than my new Joe Rocket)

You'll have to let us know how well that perforated leather breathes after you get some warm temps. Looking forward to your review.

Looks nice. I was thinking of a perforated leather jacket, then decided on this one:
to replace my Joe Rocket mesh, but at the bike show in DC this January I ended up picking up a Belstaff Mojave waxed cotten. That jacket is warm, and breathes. Haven't tested it out yet in the heat, but so far in the mid to high 60's it's doing fairly well at keeping me warm/cool.

I've never seen a Belstaff Mojave jacket, did a quick search...
WOW! I think that is a bit out of my price range for a jacket! No doubt that it is very nice, certainly looks it, most likely worth every penny, but my ol' lady would remove, er, parts and put them in a pickle jar for that.

a big +1 there. Too rich for my blood. I believe the wife would do more than that to me.
