River Road Baron Mesh Jacket
Wow! Bang for buck, I stole this!
Sweet baby Buddha in a bow tie!!! This is about a thousand times better than I had expected to get for the price. The jacket is comfortable both with and without the lining and the armor is well placed and feels sturdy. The lining takes seconds to remove and only an extra few seconds to put back in. With the lining removed, air flow is incredible and will keep you very comfortable on warm days. With the lining in, it's surprisingly warm even on colder evenings.
I particularly like the length of the sleeves as I am 6'1" 200lbs and have a good size reach. The sleeves go all the way to my gloves with just the perfect amount of overlap.
My ONLY complaint (which is really pretty minor) is the straps on the sides don't let me adjust quite enough for my waist. (I wear a size 32 jeans) But overall, it's a very minor irritation.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quality summer/fall jacket at an amazing price.

Great looks and feel
Sizing was too small, but rather than send it back, a friend saw it and bought it. I reordered next size up, and it fits fine. Another friend saw it and has bought one as well.
With the sale price Revzilla was offering, it was hard to pass up. Great buy.

Great for warm weather riding...
I live in Hawaii on Oahu and this is the perfect year round jacket for this climate (85 degrees). Offers me protection AND air flow. Very comfortable. I took the lining out. I can only see using it during the winter months (65 degrees). Plenty of pockets. Snug fit. Very happy with the price point.

This Jacket has protection in the right places, looks good and an awesome price.
The jacket was advertised as a three season jacket and the video, Anthony, leaned more on the side of two and a half season jacket. Like the video said, depends on your cold tolerance. I wore it out the other day, Jan 16, 2016, it was 35 degrees and I didn't feel any cold air coming through the jacket. The liner is removable for warmer days. On the negative side, the collar kinda rubs the neck but I'm blaming it on the jacket not really broken in yet so its a little stiff. The sizing; I'm 5'11 with a 43" chest and a large fits good, maybe a little on the snug side if i need to wear a heavy sweatshirt underneath.

nice jacket for just cursing
the jacket fits well and is VERY comfortable. I would recommend buying it for in town riding or just riding for fun but nothing seriously like the track!

Awesome jacket for the price
This jacket looks the bomb. Styled like a leather jacket, but has way more airflow. Perfect for hot weather.
Im 75kg, 40ish chest, 1.76m and bought the small as the medium was sold out. I use it without the liner as its way too hot where I ride, the fit is perfect. I was a bit worried the S was going to be too small but the jacket is cut quite big, and the shoulders are based off Michael Phelps...reaaallly wide.
Excellent jacket and for the price, theres not much to fault here.

Not much to say about this jacket except for the fact that I love it! Though it's a summer and spring. Jacket I did not try it on the bike yet but I have worn it to break it in and get used to it and it has now become my main jacket. This is excellent and I hate wearing jackets. This is definitely one of the most comfortable jackets that I have ever had so hopefully it will perform AMF holds up as well as it fits when spring and summer come along.

size guide was accurate :-)
I'm 6" and 165lb and the medium was a good fit for me wearing a tshirt and jumper. Getting the sizing right was the biggest concern for me when purchasing online so I wanted to confirm all is good.
Haven't ridden while wearing it yet but it's not restrictive and feels comfortable even when tightened.
Shipped in a plastic cover (like at a dry-cleaners) and a plastic River Road coathanger.
Happy with my purchase
