EXCELLENT 3 SEASONS JACKET! This jacket is awesome. The fabric looks old school and a bit weathered; exactly like I was hoping. Size is excellent, waist and cuffs can be adjusted if needed. Quality is better than I expected for the price point. Feels like a solid, long lasting build. Inner lining is vented for air flow. Collar can be snapped down or worn up in colder temps. The sleeved liner makes the jacket realistic for colder weather and without it I can wear it in any weather. Vents are very functional the way they are placed and designed. Can't speak for rain repel...haven't worn it in rain. Tons of pockets, armor and reflective piping. For the price this jacket is really tough to beat. Get one. July 1, 2015
Comfortable jacket, laid back style I've used the jacket in just about all weather from 50 to 90 degrees and it works quite well, it isn't the most water proof jacket you will find but for light rain it's fine. The inner liner makes a huge difference in warmth. It might feel kinda tight at first but the inner liner is pretty thick and gets broken in after wearing it for a bit. I'm 5'11 and 180 lbs and the medium fits me perfectly. The style of the jacket is cool because you can wear it around without shouting to everyone that you ride a motorcycle. My only complaint is the same as others, in that the zippers kinda do suck just because its hard to zip with one hand, but its what you get for the price and I wouldn't tell you not to get the jacket just because of that.

Great Retro Styled Fully Functional Textile Jacket...Love It !! Greetings from Sydney, Australia...I'm 5'11" 105kg (230 lbs I think that is) with a 48" chest & the River Road Laughlin Jacket is excellent value at this price. Going off the sizing chart I went for the XL & it fits true to size....maybe a little snug with the armour & full sleeve vest installed but nothing a lost kilo won't sort out. The next size up would have been too large. I chose this jacket to cover a variety of different roles as I have a variety of different bikes (ya have have just one) & settled on this one after a lot of browsing at Revzilla. I do enjoy the process....but for single bike owners this Jacket has plenty to offer & won't break the bank. I think for most folks, a decent carefully chosen heavier leather jacket & this Laughlin & your good to go....well at least to start with anyways. Good comfort & wind protection & the fold up collar is a bonus in cooler weather. We're moving from Autums into Winter here now & it works a treat. This jacket looks better in the flesh than the pictures show. It's also a nice cut. Other reviewers tend to say the main zip is a bit fiddly to use, being a bit small & may fail & I agree, it should be a heavier gauge with a larger pull & I would have liked to see a couple of belt loops at the back but seriously, at this price point, I'm nit picking. I wore it on one of my bikes the day after it arrived & did around 200kms & it works extremely well. I ordered the black which looks fantastic but would have ordered a second Laughlin in the brown but they ran out of stock. The style is cool retro & you can even wear it to go out on the town & not feel like an idiot. Just remove the armour & the vest if its not cold out & you have a fashion item, so it has a multi function. It also suits a variety of biking styles too. The feel of the thing is really nice....a bit of an old school tent canvas/oiled material sort of feel to it. Its loaded with good features for multiple versatility & looks good on me thats gotta be a bonus :))....well done River Road & thanks Revzilla for your usual prompt service. Cheers Nik May 25, 2015
Excellent summer jacket, great value The best thing about this jacket is that it doesn´t look like a motorcycle jacket, it´s great for summer or warm temperatures, not too hot and still you feel enough protected. I bought the brown one, it´s a little darker than shown in the pictures, I think chocolate is the right color. Size chart is ok, according to my chest measure I was between medium and large, and according to my waist I was a large (got the large), also, I recommend taking advise about other buyers experiences, which is what I did and resulted fine. I´m 182 cm and 94 kg, my chest measure was 109 cm and I bought a large one and fit was fine, maybe just a bit snug on the shoulders with the liner but still comfortable. Back pad although, is a little uncomfortable at first when the jacket is used without the liner and when I move my arms to the front, but after a few minutes I got used to it, probable it is a good idea to upgrade the back pad to a CE-approved armor when you buy this jacket, I think that´s what I´ll do, other buyer recommended the Knox CE back protector, I have not tried this protector yet but I think I´ll end up getting it. I have not had any problems with the zippers as others have experienced. Sleeve length is ok, for me it´s just a bit short but I have long arms and always have to buy longer sleeve shirts and jackets. Overall I´m very happy with this jacket, great style, not too hot, and enough protection for normal riding. Recommend it. May 19, 2015
very well made I'm 5'8 175. I wear a large t-shirt, used the size chart and went with a medium. Fits perfect. Quality is excellent, Very comfortable, light weight. Looks more like a casual jacket than a motorcycle jacket. May 7, 2015
Nice jacket, Size Chart is off I studied the size chart up and down to try to get it right, i know my sleeve length to a T, and this jacket being a XXL is tiny. Im 6'4" and the sleeves are sitting well below my wrists making it kinda awkward for riding in the cold ride now, but I dont care enough to do anything about it. The waist is also short but makes it very comfortable while riding. I think a Tall size for this jacket would be beneficial because the sleeves just dont make for practical riding. May 4, 2015
Great jacket that can be worn casually If you're looking for a textile jacket you can wear just about anywhere, this is it. I've had fellow riders seeing me in the jacket tell me that I should get a jacket with armor, but surprise, it does. I upgraded the Knox CE back protector, so it would have been perfect if it came with a CE back piece in the first place. That's probably the only thing lacking with this jacket. The fit is more relaxed, so there is room to comfortably fit a baseball cap or small package against your body if you're of average build. I love the collar on it, which can be flipped up and buttoned should the weather turn cold on you or if you want to cover your neck. I wouldn't want to wear this on a hot day, so a mesh jacket is next on my list... and based on this jacket, it will definitely be another River Road. May 2, 2015
Great Jacket, Cheap Zipper I am happy so far with this jacket except for the zipper. It is impossible to work with gloves on and very difficult to get started with bare hands. I hopefully wont get to test the armor but it isn't bulky or awkward while riding. I am 6'2" 225lbs and the xl is a comfortably snug fit. April 29, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
David C: Style, and apparent value. I'll comment further on the value after I've run the zipper a few times. I really like the zip up collar and the simple design. Sep 29, 2015
Bob T: Good reviews, good price, doesn't look like a "biker jacket" Sep 22, 2015
Nikolas H: I chose the Laughlin after viewing on Revzilla & it ticked all the boxes especially at this price brainer. Jun 8, 2015
Steve S: Sent it back and went for the Joe Rocket Atomic 4.0 Mar 7, 2015
Hilliard C: Wanted a nice jacket that looks good off the bike also, and this one fits the bill. Oct 26, 2014
james m: low-key style with a collar that that zips all the way up to protect your neck Oct 21, 2014
keith b: I picked it for the price, the style, the fact that it had at least minimal armor, and last but not at all least, I picked it for the collar. Oct 18, 2014
Wyatt N: it looks like a jacket I could get off my bike and still wear without looking like a complete douche. Oct 6, 2014
Michael M: I like the Trucker style jackets from Levis and this is the closest thing I could find to match. I don't wear leather which makes it hard to find a nice simple jacket that has protection. The fit is a little big once I took the liner out but I usually layer anyways which helps. Oct 1, 2014
Michael S: Good price for features. Not too motorcycle - y looking. Can wear into a store without advertising I just got off a bike. Low key. Looks durable. Sep 12, 2014
James H: I needed a cool weather jacket and liked the fact that this one doesn't scream MOTORCYCLE jacket. It should serve nicely as a casual jacket when I step off the bike and go into a store or other place of business. Also, it appears to be well built with thoughtful features - numerous pockets, secure collar - up or down, removable lining, impact protection, etc. Apr 3, 2014
David P: Needed a warmer jacket for cooler weather, but didn't want to look like a power ranger. Oct 23, 2013
Clint B: Good style (looks good off and on the bike), water resistance, ce armor, and a great price. Oct 12, 2013
gary h: excellent review of jacket at store web site Sep 17, 2013

Thomas B: Sorry, My question is a little confusing. I want to get the jacket in medium. What upgradable armor do I get? (specifically the forcefield armor, they don't have a size type B also they are now numerically sized.) Thanks Jan 22, 2015
A shopper asked: I was wondering if you can upgrade the armor that comes stock in the jacket. Can you recommend the armor that best fits? Mar 25, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The back protector compartment is the standard Knox shape, so you could upgrade the pad to the Knox TP2 Advance X CE Back Protector, Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro (Type B, Size Small), or the REV'IT! Seesoft Back Protector Insert (Type KN, Size 65). This jacket already includes CE-rated elbow so River Road does not offer any direct-fit upgrade kits. Should you decide that you want to upgrade the elbow and shoulders, we recommend looking into Forcefield replacement protectors or D30 products from Klim. Mar 28, 2013
