REV'IT! Roamer Leather Jacket
excellent jacket for the price point
A great jacket overall. I spent 4 months researching leather jackets and ended up buying the Roamer. I was looking for the following:
1) something classic with modern lines that would blend into my waredrobe for a night out;
2) the highest quality leather and construction;
3) something that was made for motorcycle riders that would not compromise on protection.
For me, the Roamer fit all 3 above criteria. I'd rate this jacket 4.5/5 stars. Half a star knocked off for the cheap materials used in the liner. For the price though I cannot complain. All the money you are spending is going into the highest quality leather and construction/stitching. Liners are cheap to replace.
The fit is perfect for me. I have a 42 inch chest, 32 inch waist and 32 inch midsection. Finding leather jackets that contour my figure are extremely hard to come by. Jackets in stores never fit me right. That being said, the size 46 fit me like a glove. I couldn't believe it! I can't imagine this jacket fitting the average body proportions as well. I should note that I am basing my fit with the removable insulation removed. It's a piece of junk anyway, you're better off with an extra long sleeve shirt.

This jacket has the classic leather look that I was going for. It fits well and feels great riding in temps as low as 45 degrees. The construction seem great and I've purchased REV'IT products in the past and would recommend them to anyone.

i'm 6'0" 155lbs, small build. i ended up getting this jacket in a 46 after trying on the 46, 48, and 50 at the revzilla store here in philly. the 46 was snug at first (especially in the arms) but it has begun to break it nicely. i've had this jacket for about 4 months. it's definitely more suited for cool weather. i rode it in temperatures ranging 50-85 degrees. with the thermal liner in (or better yet an ultra-light down jacket) the jacket is perfect for cooler weather. it's also great as an off-the-bike jacket.
i wasn't much of a fan of the included armor (the shoulders and elbows just seemed too bulky) so i swapped it all out for d3o stuff. it's much more comfortable for me with the slimmer armor in it.
super fashionable, great protection, basic features, i highly recommend this jacket if you like the way it fits.

Great winter jacket
I bought this jacket as a winter jacket. The sleeves are tight on me. I am 6' tall at 165lbs - 39 inch chest wearing a 50. There is no venting. I cannot see wearing this jacket above 60 or so degrees.

This jacket is not well fitted.
I bought this jacket with knowledge on my partner's sizing (it was meant to be a surprise) and it fit perfectly at the shoulders, but the arms were too tight and the jacket in the midsection was too large. It was a really odd fit. The style looks great in the picture but in reality, it bunches and even the cinch-straps at the waist made it worse (style wise). It would work on men who are not considered tall and slender.
It's mainly a style issue, but I would not recommend this product.

Great Euro-style Leather.
After wearing it for my daily commute for the past 2-3 months, I can say that I like this jacket very much. I'm 5'10" 160 lbs. slightly build, with 31" inseam , so I order size small and it fit me perfectly after a week of brake-in. I've owned Joe Rocket, Tourmaster, Icon, and Hein Gericke jackets before, but this Rev'It Roamer seem to fit me the best. Though this jacket does not provide much air-flow, I would gladly trade that off for full protection of leather. Great work Rev'It! Keep it up.

Lightweight, stylish and beautiful jacket - this is a recipe for this excellent product.
Soft leather, protection on the elbows and shoulders, inner lining - this jacket is created for people who love beautiful and flashy things.
In this jacket you will always attract the attention of people around you.
Perfect style and comfort - that's how you can describe this product.

Totally rad protection from wind and pavement.
I've been riding around in this jacket for the last 3 weeks, and I'm extremely pleased. I'm 5'11", 165 pounds, and this jacket fit me perfectly in a size 48. A size 46 also fit, but a bit snug in the arms when the liner was added.
If you're considering this jacket, then you know how dope this classic look is. I don't need to say anymore about that. If you're not already an intimidating/rockstar type of person, be ready for people to be giving you second glances everywhere you go. Compliments are also pretty common with this jacket.
I've found that at highway speeds, with all zippers zipped and buttons fastened, I am virtually impervious to wind. If I undo the buttons at the wrists or the neck, I can get a pleasant breeze passing through at 55-65mph.
The jacket also has not really changed shape or size since I bought it, but I might still be in the break-in period, so I can't really give a definitive answer on that.
So far I haven't been rained on. The temperature here has been between 65-90 degrees, and I've found that the liner becomes necessary only around 70 degrees or lower.
I'd really recommend this jacket. Send any questions if you've got them.
