River Road Harrier Leather Tactical Vest
Wellworth the savings
This is a great vest for your MC cuts. I was torn between this and the Icon. I went with this for the savings and I am very happy with it. It fits true to size. I cant wait to add my colors to it.

Excellent Style & Comfort
My eye had been on this vest for a while, but when it went on sale, I couldn't resist the impulse purchase urge. This is a great vest in full grain buffalo leather. The quality of construction is excellent. It fits true to size for an average build (I wear a size small, and I am 5'-5" at 155 lbs). The lining feels great, and the inside zippered back panel of the lining allows the application of your colors with ease. I wear a fully armored motard jacket underneath my vest, and it fits perfectly over it. And even when I just wear the vest over a t-shirt, it still looks great and is not large at all. The inside front pockets are useful, but the two built-in elastic straps for the holster pocket is really a waste, since you cannot "quickdraw" your firearm when using the elastic straps. Also, the concealed carry pocket is for right-handed folks only. It'd be better to use your own holster like a Galco in the pocket. This vest has an "edgier" style versus the traditional biker look. At the sub $100 price range, you get a similar look to the Icon Regulator Stripped Vest but without the Icon price.

Awesome but short!
I just got this vest in and will have to send it back. I am 6'1", 235lbs and athletic...this vest is about 2" too short even in an XL. All my shirts look like dresses with this vest on unless I tuck them in so if you have a long torso (or even if you have a slightly longer than normal torso) you may need to look at a different vest. Sucks because this vest is zipper front, has gun pockets, and has the zippered back to simplify sewing on patches. All around great vest, just too short.
With regard to sizing, whatever size shirt you wear, go with the same size in this vest. People say it runs large but they must have the velcro straps pretty far out (which looks silly) or be skinny. If you want he straps to look decent, get your normal size.

Fit perfectly. Very comfortable. The inner pockets have plenty of space.

I'll admit I had never heard of River Road, but saw this item on sale and watched the product review video. The holster pocket is a nice touch, but like others have said, the elastic is difficult to use. I've had several patches sewn on and my MC colors look great on it. Be warned that it cannot accommodate a side rocker patch. Love it though.

Great vest for the price
Got my vest a Lil while ago. And I must say I love it. Got because I'm joining a MC and needed a quality cut. My only disappointment was that the holster. The holster has to elastic bands in the inside that's suppose to the holster. It's pretty difficult to holster and unholster a firearm. But I personally just slide the firearm into the pocket without using the bands it's deep enough to hold it in place.

Quality Vest at Good Price
very good looking and high quality vest. very "clean" looking, but still has style. if you're anything like me and don't really go for the "busy" looking gear with studs and tassels and what not, then this vest is right up your alley. very simple and clean without being boring. the concealed carry pocket is an "ok" feature in theory, but DO NOT buy it for that reason. I thought it would be cool and bought it thinking I would use it, but I find that my holster is more reliable, although it's bulkier under the vest. I just find the vest "holster pocket" to be kinda cumbersome...and I carry a small gun Glock 26 and/or a Ruger SR9C and I still find it's hard to pull the gun out in a hurry - kinda gets caught up in the lining, etc. just more trouble than its worth to me. the pocket is deep enough for a larger gun if you choose to try it anyway - heck it may even work better with a larger gun cos the handle is easier to reach...maybe I'll try it with my full size S&W .40 and get back with y'all!!....
