River Road Baron Mesh Jacket
I love this Jacket
I bought this Jacket for a summer jacket in Florida. For that, it's amazing. I am 5'6", 175, it's an amazing fit at an Medium.
I get compliments on it all the time, and it's my go-to jacket on warm days. Even on cool (for florida) days, the liner is a win.
I confess, that I was guilty of wearing light jackets, or none at all on hot days. I cannot comment on the protection, as I have yet to "test" that. but I feel good knowing that a Jacket with this much armor is as comfortable as it is.
My only complaint is that the loop inside isn't as beefy as it should be to hang the jacket. In other words, because the jacket doesn't hang well on a hook because of the back pad, I would design a heavier hang loop. That is, however, a VERY small issue.
Revzilla had it to me fast, and I cannot say enough good things about them as a company. Of course, for a Philadelphia company, I expect no less. Go Phillies!

Great jacket for the money.
If you're looking for a basic, comfortable mesh jacket with armor, give this one a try. The shoulder armor is a little bulky though.

A good jacket, especially for the price
Just moved to California from New England, needed a jacket for the constant warm weather. This one fits the bill perfectly. The all mesh is great for the hot weather while still giving full protection.

Good Bang for the Buck
I was in need a simple mesh jacket for my daily commute to and from work and needed something that didn't break the bank. It flows air well and while not having the protection of a full leather racing suit for what it is I think it will provide adequate protection in a get off. The liner is nice on cool mornings but makes the fit just a bit tight in the arms. If you have large arms be aware of this. With out the liner the fit is near perfect. I am 5'11" about 205lbs. and I got a large. All in all just what I was looking for.

Perfect fit for me. Very nice removable liner. I love the way the sleeves zip and velcro closed, also the neck button is actually comfortable when closed. Vents air in hot weather perfectly.

Much better than I expected.
I was expecting a lightweight, fairly flimsy jacket, based on the low price. When I pulled it out of the box I started grinning. Yah, I'm pleased with it.
In warm weather it flows great. Cooler temps - put in the excellent liner and it's a cold weather jacket.

This Jacket is two in one, as the liner makes it 3 seasons for sure.
The jacket was so comfortable I hardly noticed it. No tight spots, no extra material to flop around in the wind. The liner is easy to zip in and out. The best part was how cool the jacket is in hot weather, 93 degrees and I was very comfortable. The mesh works great with air flow. I wont be buying a new leather jacket for protection, as the CE pads are not in the way whjile riding or walking around. They give you that protected feeling in case of a mishap. At my age I am very picky and no tolerance for discomfort. The style and good looks are what I was looking for. This jacket delivered and well worth the money.
