River Road Baron Mesh Jacket
Versatile and safe
I bought this jacket to replace an old leather one that I lost. The mesh allows for plenty of airflow while still feeling like I'm being well protected, especially with the built-in armor. Having a removable liner is a definite plus for chilly mornings and late nights, although the button/loop system is a little bothersome at times. Overall a great jacket for riding any time of year.

this thing moves so much air.
And with the liner in - this thing is water proof and warm. A very dynamic jacket.

Subtle Style with multi-season versatility
I really like this jacket. In fact, I talked my buddy into buying one. You can't beat it for the price. It's very subtle with no logos, and the reflective piping really does show up when lights wash over you. With the liner in, you are warm (just rode in 50° temps tonight#, and with the liner out it stays relatively comfortable in 95° Texas heat. The armor seems adequate, though I haven't tested it #and hope to not test it......)

"Bang for the Buck" sums it up
Nice looking jacket; seems to flow air well enough (though I bought it late in season and haven't ridden on an extremely hot day); features are what is needed - hard to beat for the price. Definitely recommended.

First and last jacket I'll need
This was my first road bike jacket and it's most likely going to be the only one I need for a while. Great for three season riding. Great protection to put a new rider at ease. Plenty of pockets for keys, phone, wallet, etc. Really comfortable fit.

Very happy with this jacket
The revzilla video on this jacket is excellent. I purchased a medium based on revzilla's comment that these tend to run big. I am 5'10" and 195. With the liner installed, the arms runs bit tight. Without the liner, the jacket fits me well. I could not find a way to purchase a CE rated back protector. Luckily, the jacker this replaces has a CE rated back pad that is removable. So I swapped them. I've had a 3 hour ride in this jacket in Houston (September) and am very happy with it.

Breathes great and looks awesome
I was drawn to this jacket because of its sick style that isn't too flashy like most textile jackets and couldn't pass up the offer when I saw that it was just over $100. After ordering it I thought that it might be to good of a deal to be true and waited anxiously to see what was really in store. When it arrived very shortly after I had placed the order I opened the box and threw it on. I instantly knew that I got an amazing deal on an amazing jacket. The only complaint that I have is that if I wear a collar shirt under it it is irritating on the neck but not too bad and can be avoided by making minor adjustments. I bought it for the warm california weather and so far it has done me justice.
