River Road Baron Mesh Jacket
Excellent fit, comfort -does the job for a great price.
Needed warm weather protection -- this jacket feels like I'm covered, but with more than enough airflow to keep comfortable on a hot day -- when riding, feels like you're wearing a tee-shirt. With the liner in, it's pretty much waterproof, though I haven't yet been through a thorough soaking rain.
The Medium fits perfect. (170/5'8"). I took out the foam pad in the back and replaced it with a proper back protector. Everything else feels pretty solid. Highly recommend.

Great jacket for the $$$
This is only the 2nd riding jacket I've ever owned. My first one was leather and I hated wearing it in the summer heat. Bought this textile one for better airflow and cooler rides. It is full of airflow and I've actually been leaving the liner in on 70 deg days just to stay a bit warmer. Without the liner it is GREAT for staying cool though. This jacket is full of pockets for cell phone, iPod, wallet which is great. The padding feels very protective but doesn't make the jacket look super bulky and awkward. I highly recommend this jacket to anyone who rides a lot in the summer like I do

Excellent Value & Looks Great
Jacket was purchased for some extra summer protection with possible use into the fall. Fits great (used the size chart and it was spot on), ventilates well, has a nice zip-in liner that will extend use into the fall and spring. Shoulder and elbow pads are a little bulky, but stay in place. Wrist, elbow and waist adjustments work well for a custom fit. I'm fairly slim and there is some extra room in the midsection, but it doesn't blow around or bunch up. Overall exceeds expectation.

Just what it's supposed to be!
I got this jacket a couple of weeks ago and I am really enjoying it. We've had some warm days lately and the airflow is great. This past weekend was cooler and I wore it with the liner and it was just enough to keep the chill off. I like that the inner pockets are the same on the jacket and the liner. I also like that it's very plain and simple with no big graphics. The fit is exactly as I expected but for the price, this jacket was really more than I hoped for. I highly recommend it.

Great bang for the buck!!! Good fit and style!
I received the jacket right on time and packaged well. Fit was spot on I'm 5'7. 165 lbs. I ordered a medium and it fit great. Armor is in the right places and fit tight to the body. The liner is nice and keeps you decently warm. It comes out and back in relatively easy. I wore the jacket in 50 degree weather and with a couple of layers underneath I was comfortable. Good adjustments on sleeves. The waist band adjust are a little big on me ( if strap had some more Velcro it would work better) The internal pockets are the only thing that look/feel a little cheap. But for around $100 you can't go wrong. I would recommend this jacket especially now as the weather starts to warm up.

Great jacket for the money
I use this jacket when its anywhere between 32-90 degrees, it has a great wind breaker that is very comfortable and does not make you sweat, there are two large pockets inside the right and left sides, very useful for those of us who like everything out of our pants pockets, the inside pockets are built in to the windbreaker and for the summer when you take the windbreaker off, they are also built in to the inside mesh. Overall the jacket is a great deal and a great look.

Good mesh jacket for the $
Got this jacket earlier this week. Styling is great, no flashy logos or any other ridiculous things. I ride a Triumph Thruxton, and this jacket matches the bike very well. I usually wear a Large and this jacket fits me excellent in that size. Nice adjustability in the waist, cuffs, and sleeves. The removable liner definitely will help for early morning rides.The armor is on the lighter side and fits comfortably in the jacket.
All in all, I think it's a great jacket for the money.
