After some research, I did narrow my list down to Joe Rocket Phoenix Ion, and Olympia Switchback 2 / Bradley or Rev'IT! Airwave 2. All three jackets sell approximately in the same price-range (+/- $30).
I normally wear size Large jackets, but had to go for XL in Joe Rocket Atomic 5.0 jacket so I could layer-up for winter riding and have long-enough sleeves. I rode in NYC and try-state area from September 2018 through the whole winter in this jacket (except the harshest days), layering-up/down, and jacket performed well for $130 that I paid (found a deal @ Revzilla.com). Note: Atomic 5.0 is not water-resistant (regardless of the claims).
As I said, I normally wear jackets in L, but need longer selves, and found that L-tall fits me best according to various size charts. Joe Rocket happened to be the only one of the three that makes L-tall in the color I would prefer for the heat of the summer riding (silver), so I pulled the trigger an ordered Joe Rocket Phoenix Ion Silver from Revzilla.com
for $179+tax and free shipping. It also seems to have the most mesh panels, especially around shoulders and back, which will help to push air in the areas that will have limited ventilation due to Helite Turtle Airbag vest.
I don't expect this jacket to perform miracles for $200, and be ultra-comfortable, but should be decent enough jacket with some adjustments, comfort touches as well as keep me warm on cooler mornings, and nice and cool in the heat of the day. If the jacket doesn't fit, I'll have to go back to drawing board, maybe plan a day-trip to Revzilla store to try a bunch of different brands in person.
