River Road Hoodlum Vintage Leather Jacket
My main concern was fitment
I saw the jacket, and i knew i wanted it. Yeah its not a protective textile jacket with armor, but it would be way better than the leather jacket I was using (tears and holes everywhere). I liked the look, I could live with less than perfect protection, so my only concern was fitment issues. The video says these jackets run large, so you should buy a size down from what you normally wear. At least in my case, I don't think that was true. I am 6', 165 lbs. I usually wear a 40 R in jacket size, which fits good in the chest, but short in the arms when they are raised. My sleeve measurement, from the back of my neck is 33 1/4'', my chest measurement is 40'', my waist measurement is 32''. I bought the size 42 jacket so the sleeves wouldn't be too short in the riding position. I am happy with that choice. The jacket fits me well with the liner in (snug), but, like you might expect, it fits loose with the liner out (in the chest and waist). But I am okay with that. The sleeves extend slightly past my wrists a little over an inch when my arms are at my side, but they sit exactly at the wrist when in a cruiser riding position. Overall I am very happy with the look and feel of it.

Pretty good jacket
Nice jacket, I bought it for my short distance rides in the city, I love the leather quality and pockets, the only thing is I like my jackets to be very tight this one just a bit too big - I wish I've got one size down. Revile service is awesome as usual!

For the price, you can't beat its style, I bought this jacket with knowing this brand runs huge with the intention of having it tailored. I just love the look of it.

Great looking jacket, do something about the smell
Been riding with it for 3 weeks now. Looks good and fits a little small. I wear size 42 and size 44 fits me just right. It's a little stiff to start with and has not broken in a whole lot to my shape yet.. but its beginning to..
The smell of new leather is kind of pungent at times.. but I don't notice it while riding. My closet is full of it though :(

Great jacket,Great customer service, Great shipping
I recently purchased the river road hoodlum jacket size 40..i weight around 150, waist 34, and sleeve lenth about 33 long...i was a little unsure about what size to get so i called revzilla and the customer experience was great and he told me size 40 would be perfect for me..He has definitely right and there is even room for a hoody if i ever need to wear one underneath..The jacket is amazing style because you can wear it to ride but also whwn your not riding and wanna go out..i would definitely recommend it to anybody who wants a thick leather jacket.super fast shipping less then 2 days and it was on my front door step...wore it that day and i already got a bunch of compliments...nice and warm too..

Good For all but a few areas
The from pockets are a bit hard to get into (have to bend your wrist) so I use the inside pockets which are good but I cut the Velcro off the inside pockets for more convince for myself and thats it.

Great Jacket - front zipper issues
I bought this jacket and still am extremely pleased with the quality and function of the jacket. i wear it all the time. ONE issue - my front zipper broke!!! - after a year of wear. I contacted the manufacturer and the website where I purchased the jacket (m-superstore). That website had horrible customer service: they wanted me to write a letter explaining what was wrong and then they would make a consideration/recommendation.
River Road was awesome. They sent me a new jacket immediately no questions!!! They just wanted the damaged jacket back. All that said, if you have a defective product (don't know how revzilla deals with issues) just talk to them directly and they will

Not very protective, but looks good
I wear this jacket on days that are too cold for my perforated leather jacket. there is no armor, and the leather feels a tad thin. This jacket gets used mostly as a general winter jacket when I'm driving my car or just out walking around.
I repeat... THERE IS NO ARMOR. There are a ton of jackets that will protect you better.
