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
Perfect for the changing weather Liner and Pads are easily removable Not to bulky Can put on a sweatshirt or hoodie underneath for when it gets colder and won't feel constricted Vents well Not terribly waterproof (maybe have an hour in light rain before you start feeling wet) October 27, 2014
Good features and a ride in style. As other people have said, probably the only downside is the stubborn zipper. But I expect it to wear in. It's great in style and probably runs on the bigger side. So keep that in mind while buying. Watch out when removing the liner as I already tore one of the buttons off. October 13, 2014
Great all around jacket If your looking for a multi season jacket with built-in protection that doesn't scream "motorcycle" this is it. After wearing it for a month in everything from high 80s to mid 60s temps, I can say it's very comfortable. I've only ridden with the removable liner removed, so I expect it will be quite warm in the much cooler temps of the fall. The venting allows decent air flow in the warmer months, but I would not push it in the hotter months (90+). When buttoned up it feels pretty windproof and keeps warmth in even without the liner. Styling is great for the subtle look. Only drawback is the flimsy zippers. October 4, 2014
Wait for Laughlin 2.0 Let's take this in context... This jacket is at the low end of jacket price choices; still, it is supposed to be a motorcycle jacket. Unfortunately the fabric's weight, comparatively loose weave, and external seam construction, all suggests the Laughlin's abrasion resistance is going to be lower than it should be even at this price. Further, as the other reviews noted, the main zipper's quality is poor to the point of being unusable. The zipper's teeth simply refuse to operate smoothly (especially at the neck bend) even when treated with graphite. So why didn't I send it back? The collar. I wanted a jacket that was cheap, could do cold, was a socially-stealthy Low-Viz; and found that no one else offers a collar like the Laughlin's which zips-up high to protect your neck. So for $20 I had a tailor replace the main zipper; and for the cost of a large bar of fabric wax ($15) I treated the coat to increase the jacket's wind resistance. The elbow and shoulder armor pockets are large, and I found that Icon's regular (not their D3o) replacement armor inserts fit right in and don't move around. Comparing dimensions with available back armor replacements I think Forcefield's # 001 back insert would have been the closest fit in shape and size to the back armor pocket, but I decided to just trim up a Viper ST D3o pad that I already had. In regards to fit, I am 5'11 & 190 lbs and found a size Large fits me perfectly, but only without the removable liner (which proved to be bulkier than my other winter layers that do fit under this jacket). Why am I not recommending it? Although this is a great looking, low-key jacket with some great features, it needs to be constructed with a moto worthy, denier rated fabric. Do that River Road and I may pony-up for another one. September 25, 2014
A good alternative to black I wanted a brown jacket to wear on top of my thermals but under my leather vest. The River Road Laughlin suited my needs style wise. With the armour removed I can happily wear this as a casual jacket off the bike. I'm a big guy (6'7)and I ride with ape hangers so I bought the biggest size. The issue with fit for me is that it's a little to loose in the torso region and way to tight and short in the arms. Given I wear this jacket with longer gloves it isn't a major issue however it probably means it won't come out in summer. Quality is good however the zippers could be a little better. But it is what it is - a cool looking cheap jacket. August 25, 2014
Great 1st Jacket for my 1st bike I had just purchased a new bike (Triumph Bonneville T100) and needed a jacket. The leather jackets were too expensive / too much brain damage after making the bike decision, so I settled for a good "starter" jacket -- 1) protection and 2) low-key. I saw one of the shop guys wearing this jacket (in brown) and decided that should do the trick, so I bought it and crossed "jacket" off my to-do list. I'll probably get something leather (either Roland Sands or Revit) or nice but not alien textile (Revit's Euro-style collection -- Oxford or Concorde) in the near future for use here in San Francisco, but this jacket is doing the trick and not turning heads in the office (I work in Finance) for the wrong reasons right now. Zippers are a bit stiff, but they work and they shouldn't be a dealbreaker for you. August 10, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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
gary h: excellent review of jacket at store web site Sep 17, 2013
William L: It seemed the best after calling your store. The lady who helped me with my fitment questions was top notch and extremely helpful. Aug 30, 2013
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

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
