I have exactly that suit...Teknic Lightening. Used it for over 13000 kms this season and loved it. Fits great, good quality, never had a problem with it and would heartily recomend to anyone. My buddy has the same set up,rides just as far and likes it as well. Another buddy has the pants only which he wears with a textile jacket and likes it as well.
As for the fit being too short for the jacket alone...that is going to be dependent on your own torso length. Go to a local shop and try it on to see if possible. I am a 44 long and wear a 46 long in Teknic. It gives me a bit of slack underneath in order to layer up when it turns cool.
I don't like the Joe Rocket, a little too bling for me. I also don't feel the quality is the same but that is purely personal and shouldn't be taken as gospel.
