Comments about Women's Luna 2.0 Textile Motorcycle Jacket:
Bought the Luna 3 years ago and 2+ sizes larger than I am now. It never fit a large bust well & still doesn't. Hint for Joe Rocket: Big breasts aren't located on clavicles.
Could not understand why zip-in liner has no sleeves. How dumb! Also, sleeves are very small at wrist. My lean wrists are too big to zip the sleeve zippers closed with a few layers on for the warmth that should be provided by sleeve liners.
I took out the back straps that adjust size and put in D rings and a cool multicolored cord to lace it snugger with my reduced size, but the jacket sticks out at the bottom like a ducktail, so I will take in the side seams instead.
I was pondering best way to seal the seams to retain water impregnability, when I rode my bike to an appointment up here in the northern CA mountains Feb 2014 when rain was finally predicted. I figured if I rode, it would rain, so I did since we need rain a lot this year. It rained hard.
Apparently this is my first ride in rain of consequence, although I have ridden many days in freezing temps, snow, sleet, hail and some rain.
This is a good time to mention I have embellished my jacket nicely: I tore off the JR arm patches and replaced the right one side with a cool, vintage BMW patch, then edged it with exploding ultra fine glitter. The left side is waiting for next inspiration.
I designed a custom and really great Pancho Barnes Academy of Aviation & Alchemy design (Google Pancho; she was my kind of person) and embroidered it on the back, but I put Aviation & Alchemy on bottom line and it's too wide for cinching in the lacing just below, which will be remedied when I take in the sides.
Anyway, on my ride home in the downpour, thinking the custom embroidery might leak since I haven't sealed it yet under the embroidery, I was blown away to arrive home soaked. The Luna is a leaker everywhere.
Also, the collars on Joe Rocket chix jackets are laughable. Do they think all females ride nestled up behind someone else? The collars are a joke: maybe 1" high--if any!--and no fleece inside, nor extra snaps for a lot of things underneath. I started out with a men's Joe Rocket and they had high collars and 2 snaps for adjustability; why not women's?
I met a guy who worked for Joe Rocket and had recently retired. he told me to contact the woman who is in design and should be interested in my comments. I did. No response.
The side pockets are too far back and hard to locate.
The front zipper is a chore to zip. It often went off the track when I was heavier. I could zip in but not out. I am very careful about this now and it's OK. I love the weather flap underneath, but wish the warmer weather venting system wasn't so loose.
I have an investment in my jacket. It is mine. I already have rimmed seams with Elmer's glue and ultra fine glitter and more is in the works. I will design a replacement collar with a taller, fleece-lined, adjustable version.
I will take in the sides and apply an aftermarket sealer over the whole shitereee when done.
Would I buy it again? Considering what's out there, probably.
Should you? Depends on your way of living.
