Very Nice Jacket. I have to say that I am impressed with the jacket at this point. I haven't had a chance to ride with it yet, so this review will be limited to first impressions. Very stylish. If you're looking for a light jacket that doesn't look like a motorcycle jacket, this is for you. I ordered brown, and the color is several shades darker than it looks in the pics, more of a tobacco color. The zippers are fairly robust and the flaps completely cover the main zipper when shut, so much less chance of inadvertently scratching the tank of your bike. The material is rather unusual. At first it appears thinner than expected, and I wondered if it would give adequate protection. On closer examination it is about the thickness of 600 cordura, however it is much softer. Again, it lays (and feels) more like a light canvas jacket than a motorcycle jacket. Even the weave of the fabric looks like cotton. Snaps hold down the collar, although the tab looks like it might flap a bit, and if you snap it to the collar's snap, that side might lift at speed. (Something I need to check) The liner is, again, very nice. A heavy zipper, and buttons to secure it to the sleeves; as well as two velcro pockets (and two on the shell if the liner is removed). I'm 5' 9 1/2" and 155lbs, and a medium fits perfect. it is a smidge tight with the liner in, but not noticeably so. And besides, if it's cold enough to warrant a liner, I'll wear a leather jacket. Downsides? The armor, in the elbows, doesn't really sit well for me. it seems to want to slide around to the front rather lay where I'd like. And the armor in the shoulders seems a little smaller than I'm used to (possibly to maintain the great lines of the jacket?). But that is really nitpicking. Honestly, this is a VERY nice jacket for the money. Outstanding style, comfort, and (at least initially) quality. April 15, 2015
Bang I was incredibly skeptical about ordering a jacket online, but this jacket nails it. Nice retro styled jacket with modern features. The padding does leave a little more to be desired but for what it is, it will suit my needs. The jacket overall isn't bulky, or too heavy. I'm 6'1, 140 lbs and I ordered a medium. The sleeves are the perfect length for my tall, lanky build, but the chest and waist are a little big. Buts that's to be expected for my height and weight. I love the ventilation on the jacket so far. In Iowa the weather can change pretty quick and this jacket has kept up so far. The true test is going to be this summer with the humidity. If your on the fence about this jacket, I say pull the trigger. April 14, 2015
Great Jacket This jacket is a no brainer. Looks great, fits great, seems to be built well and is a steal at the asking price. March 14, 2015
The jacket fits and is comfortable but smells like rubber. Its a good jacket. I bought it for a motorcycle trip in India. The only problem was the intense rubber/chemical smell that I couldn't get out of the jacket. It seems to be coming from the foam and rubber armor. Its really pungent and almost made me return the jacket if I didn't need it for my trip. February 10, 2015
If you're looking for an inexpensive jacket that looks good, then this is it. This jacket fits well. I'm 6'4" and 240 lbs. I ordered a 2 XL and it fits really well. I have enough (barely) to fit a hoodie underneath for some extra warmth. However, the jacket is pretty warm on its own, as it has a built in removable liner. The sleeves are about a 1/4 inch to short but I have really long arms, so I expected this. It's made in Pakistan, which I think is a draw back, but for the price I knew it wasn't going to be made in the USA. I looked at the "Off the Chain 2.0" jacket by Speed and Strength but went with this one. I'm glad I did. February 10, 2015
Great Value This is my first dedicated jacket after 35 years of denim jackets for riding. My OCD nature had me looking at jackets and reading reviews for about 2 months. I am very happy with this purchase. I wanted a jacket that did not shout "motorcycle". This one fits the bill. The liner certainly ups the comfort quotient in cooler temps - down to about 45 or 50 degrees for me. I originally ordered at small, per the sizing chart. It did not fit well. The Medium is perfect with room for an extra layer if needed and room to move around and breathe, liner in or out. The ventilation is modest at best, but that is remedied by allowing more flow through the main zipper in front and opening up the sleeve zippers with the snaps closed up. The jacket initially has an odd, petroleum fragrance about it: this went away after the first ride, and subsequently smelled like suede, which is what the brown one looks and feels like. The elbow and shoulder pads are perfect placed for me and not obtrusive. The back pad is nominal, but better than nothing. About the only aspect of this jacket that is not perfect for its intended purpose, are the zippers. The zippers are not very robust and the main front zipper - the one you will use the most - is rather fiddley in its engagement. The ends don't slide together easily, especially if gloves are on. The liner has a same low-rent zipper. I suspect that it will fail if used frequently. The buttons for the liner sleeves and back are not robust and will likely need re-sewing with use. When and if the zippers fail, I will have a tailor put in some high quality zippers. The price allows you to this easily as the other jackets I looked at were much more expensive, although they did have higher quality zippers. The rest of the jacket has a nice quality about it; the seams feel strong and the metal snaps are stamped with the River Road logo. The company River Road seems to take pride in the product as it came with a simple plastic bag and a branded hanger. I am very stoked about this jacket and would buy another one should this one get stolen. By way of background, I ride mostly on weekends, occasionally to and from work, and for 1-3 hour rides for fun on a 1973 Honda Scrambler without any windscreen. January 1, 2015
Happy customer Great look and function, Good range of airflow and light weight. November 20, 2014
Big Bang for the Buck This is a stylish jacket that packs a lot of features for the money. You get a liner with pockets, armor in the back and arms, and pockets in the jacket also if you decide to remove the liner. Has zippered vents for air flow also. I am 6 foot 195 and I purchased a large. It fits me pretty tight, especially with the liner in so I cannot wear say a thick sweater or shirt under it, but I'm getting used to it. Perhaps it will break in over time. The jacket is well made and rugged. I am very impressed so far with River Road, they seem to make very good products for the rider. Overall it's a good jacket, just remember it may fit a bit small and you might need to go one size up if you like a little wiggle room. November 17, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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: I've heard that besides the neck, nostalgia is man's greatest weakness... And this zips all the way up to protect the 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

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
