River Road Baron Mesh Jacket
Jacket is well made and looks good. Now that temps are 90 plus, I could use more airflow. Overall I am pleased.

My leather Tourmaster has been too hot for summer riding so I figured it was time to upgrade to a mesh. My top choices came down to the Tourmaster Air Intake and this, unfortunately I chose Tourmaster first bc the brand loyalty. It ended up fitting oddly and the sleeves were too large and same with the midriff. I returned and got the Baron and boy am I glad that I did!
I am 6'0", 185lbs, slightly broad shoulders/big arms, midsize waist. The large fit me perfect (ps idk how the guy in the review fits in a medium being 6'0", 195lbs), my recommendation would be to get the size you normally get for any jacket/hoody. The jacket itself is very stylish and almost looks like a leather at first glance. Fit is a bit snug but I like that. Very minimal branding which is nice. I took it out today for the first time in the morning when it was 50F, with the liner it was perfect warmness. When I left work it was above 70F and with the liner out it was perfect with the airflow I was getting. Removing the liner is easy and with it out the fit is perfect, with the liner in a bit snug but i like it.
My only minor gripes are that the collar is a bit tight if your neck is even slightly bigger than avg, and the sleeves could be about a half inch-an inch longer. Again, these are minor things. Overall I am extremely happy with the purchase and I highly recommend it!!!

Nice Summer Jacket
If you're looking for a summer jacket without a bunch of graphics and branding on it, this is the one.
Good fit and adjustment points at the elbow and wrist. There are 5 pockets - two outside hand warmer pockets and 3 inside pockets. I think the napoleon pocket should be on the outside for easier access. but you have the two hand pockets that you can get to quickly if need be.
Removable liner came in handy recently with the temp dropped but it does make it a much more snug fit.
I also wear the River Road Outlaw Vintage Gloves and they work well together.

Call Me The Breeze
Air flow is fantastic. For me, anything between 60º-75º with the liner is very comfortable. I've been taking the liner out above 75º, and then it's perfect with a t-shirt.
I'm 5'9", 180, athletic build, the medium fits perfectly.

Fits large but has excellent styling
I was looking for a mesh jacket that didn't look too Euro for my Harley. This jacket has nice understated styling, decent protection, awesome airflow, and a great price.

great 3 season jacket
light, airy, comfortable. Love the removeable liner for super hot days. Great protection and lots of pockets/storage on both inside and outside. Would definitely recommend this.

Comfortable and affordable
Was leery purchasing a jacket online especially when it had to be such a functional item but I was not disappointed. It fit well, was comfortable all the features such as full liner, zipped cuffs, padding, etc. were perfect.

Very Cool Summer Protection.
I bought this for use in the heat of South Texas. It has great ventlation for the 80+ days and a zip in liner for cold months. Perfect fit... Very light weight and very comfortable with good protection.
