River Road Ruffian Perforated Leather Vest
a tad big
It runs a little large, but it is definitely a nice vest for the price.

Quality leather, looks great.
Very nice vest, finish is excellent. It's a little lighter than I thought, but still very nice. Great with a t-shirt on a warm day or to layer on a cool day.

great for the price
Very stylish and leather is on par with my other river road products. The liner being sewn in is annoying but not that big of a deal. Great price. Got my new mc to all buy one.

Didn't really expect to be satisfied the the fit & style of this vest but must admit it far exceeded my expectations.
It's a keeper!

The River Road Ruffian Perforated Leather Vest has exceeded my expectations in a variety of ways. First off, the picture is a good representation of the vest you will order. The style is excellent whether your using this for your cut or just want to augment your riding gear. The perforations are clean and go right through the center area of the vest allowing some ventilation, but probably better for letting out heat than cool air coming in. This is NOT a garment to get for protection during an "unscheduled dismount" since the side panels are made of think -stretchy material and there's no armor. The sizes run BIG. I normally order a large or a XL, but ordered a Medium and it fits nicely -- OVER another jacket. For the money, the River Road Ruffian Perforated Leather Vest is an excellent value.

Good buy. Definitely larger than size chart.
Overall average. Slightly poor bang for the buck from a purely functional standpoint because you pay for styling. Quality is average to good. Leather is light for the price, but again you pay for styling. Great compromise between a cheap plain vest & the $179.95 and $265 debadged and stripped models from (can't mention competitor) with straps.
Oversized if you go by the chart. It says S is 36-38 chest. I'm 37" and it billows. It's Med compared to the rest of my small gear too. I'd EXPECT it to fit loosened for a hoodie & armored jacket & carrying, or straps tightened without those... but it takes all of that to make it fit fully tightened, and with straps at the normal position it's ENORMOUS. I think I'll have the side panels removed to bring it to true sizing.
Good styling. Pockets are roomy, and it looks like it will flow a LOT of air out the back withing cooling your chest too much. You can see light through the perf on the back, not on the front. Zippers rattle. Could use the type where the pulls firm up and hold as you fold them flat. Could use strap or snap to affix the bottom waist like good jackets have. Could use zipper or opening in the liner for patching.

Nice vest for the price!
Good overall vest, great deal because it was on sale. Getting colours on today. I'm 6'4" 240lbs and the LX fits perfect. Can still get my leather jacket on under it for those cold days.
