I'm thinking about getting a new warm weather riding jacket and wondering what you guys have, if you like it, and what you like about them.

also any long term use, and how the jacket has stood up over time.

I was thinking about either a Joe Rocket Phoenix 3.0 or Firstgear REV-X Jacket.

both are less than $200. Mostly for just short trips to town when I obey all (most..or...some?) traffic laws.

Yeah, the Joe Rocket mesh jacket is great for hot days. It offers good protection, but would probably need to be replaced in the event of an "incident".

If you are going to be were the head is definately bearing down on you, the you will want a textile jacket. My Joe Rocket is great for the summer months. It lets plenty of air through when riding. Don't even think about wearing it when it gets cold though. It's like riding without a shirt on (Freezing).
