River Road Scout Jacket

Made of premium, heavy-weight leather, the Scout jacket is perfectly suited for warm weather riding. Unzip the 2 front ports to reveal perforated leather that lets air into the jacket to circulate around the body and exit the rear exhaust vents. With a removable fully-sleeved, snap out liner that reflects body heat inward and permits humidity to escape providing maximum warmth with minimal bulk.


  • Sleeve cuffs have a 2 way zipper to regulate air through the mesh gussets
  • Multiple compartments concealed under the front pockets make it easy to carry the necessities of the road
  • Includes a metal clip on a bungee lanyard for keys
  • Power stretch panels on the side and under the arms provide freedom of movement and a flexible fit
  • Reflective tape on the front and back increases night time visibility
  • Protection includes CE-rated armor in the shoulders and elbows plus EVA foam back pad
  • A Thermal Neck Wrap extends up the neck and chin and stows back into the jacket when not in use
  • The inside pockets on both the jacket and liner have a phone pocket on the left side, and a map/cargo pocket on the right side
  • Additional internal storage is located just inside the left placket, chest high. Perfect for a wallet!
  • For comfort, the collar is finished with a soft, smooth padded tipping
  • Includes 2-year manufacturer's warranty

River Road Scout Jacket 4.7 5 22 22
Scout jacket I have only had this jacket for about a week or so, but I absolutely love it. I drive a Harley sportster Forty Eight and the style of this jacket is exactly what I was looking for. Armor, warmth, ventalation, practicality, style and all for under the $300 price mark. It still has not broken in yet, but the quality feels like it will last for several years of riding.

Great leather jacket for the money! I was impressed by the style and quality of this jacket. Definitely worth the investment. October 6, 2014
Perfect Commuter Jacket I ride everywhere. One day I may be dressing formally, sometimes I'm in the rain, sometimes in the searing sun. I carry everything I need to survive on my person or on my bike. I need a jacket that is durable, flexible and stylish enough to meet these needs. This jacket fits the bill. This is my review after over a year of daily use. I always needed a jacket with heavy leather, lots of pockets, and no garish logos emblazoned over every last inch. Something you can wear to the girlfriend's parents place for dinner that doesn't look like you just came from a Moto GP race. Something you go from dinner to the track and not feel under protected. I had a chance to try a size 40 before buying. Revzilla was out of stock, so I found another retailer selling the jacket for cheaper, so I called up Revzilla and, awesome as always, they matched the price. The jacket is quite heavy but the pockets allow plenty of ventilation. It has oodles or pockets; I carry a dozen keys, couple sets of ear buds, bags for shopping, eye drops, scarf, pain relief spray, knife and other tools and it all fits comfortably. The armor is decent on the shoulders and elbows, but the back protector is a joke. Toss that junk out and get the Klim D30 insert. Requires some cutting to fit but offers far better protection. After a year the zipper teeth started to disintegrate. I contacted River Road customer service and they offered to replace it at no cost. Having worn the jacket in, I was attached to it, so they agreed to take it in and repair the zippers with better ones at no charge. So 1+ for their customer service too. Overall I love this jacket and all its features, and expect it will offer many more years of heavy use, at which time I hope it is still in stock so I can get another of the same. September 1, 2014
Great Sleeve cuffs are a little large. Can take jacket on and off with out up zipping sleeve. When adjust to second snap clip it is bunched up. July 14, 2014
Thick and heavy I ordered this jacket in a size 44 per the Geeks recommendation. Im 5'10" 190, 45 in chest, 33 pant size , athletic build. It was so tight I could not bend my arms to put on my helmet. After removing all of the liners and armor (which is thick and chunky feeling) It fit nice. I cant imagine riding this in the summer... it is crazy heavy and would be terribly hot. The perf is hardly noticeable and would do next to nothing. The styling is great however and I really dug the right breast pocket. Great jacket for the Nords. I returned the jacket. May 29, 2014
Fits small which is opposite from the video. The jacket fits slightly small. I am 6' - 180 lb's thin with athletic build. In suit jacket I am 42L. Returned the very small 42 for a 44. The 44 fit in the waist and was / is very snug in the shoulders. I ordered and tried a 46 which fit great in the shoulders but was way to loose in the waist. I did keep the 44 which several people have commented looks a bit too small on me but is a good looking jacket. The style and features are perfect. Hopefully it breaks in a loosens up a bit. May 6, 2014
Fits to size I'm 6' 200lbs 44in chest, about the same size as the guy in the video review, got a size 44 and it fits great. I think a 42 would've been too tight. Love this jacket, got it as a christmas gift and couldn't be happier. I've worn it in temps down around 38F with the liner in and was comfortable at 60mph for my 45min commute. Without the liner and with all the vents open I think it'd be comfortable into the 80s, much above that it'd be pretty warm. The little foam backpad it comes with is kinda worthless but I usually wear a backpack anyway so no big deal. The rest of the armor seems like it would be very protective it you ever needed it to be. Only complaint is that the collar has to be snapped while riding or it flaps around, wish they would add an extra snap to keep the collar open when riding in hot weather. Overall you'd be hard pressed to find a better jacket at this price. April 12, 2014
Great so far! Got this jacket in November, and so far I love it! As others have said, the leather is pretty stiff out of the box, but it softens up (especially once the weather warms up). I like the sort of "swiss army" approach they took on this one. The vast array of pockets inside of pockets inside of pockets means I can use this without a backpack for the commute most of the time. It seems to handle the lowest temperature I'm willing to ride in ~40F. At that point other body parts start to get too cold, so I haven't gone below that. Points off would be 1) not a huge fan of the reflective strips on the front. I very rarely night ride, and would rather be able to take a vest or my backpack with reflective parts instead of it being forced on the jacket. 2) The front air vents only work if you line up the velcro on the "big pockets correctly. If you are prone to opening and closing those often to grab stuff out of the 10 pockets inside, you have to make sure the velcro is lined up or it cuts off your vents. Anyway, great jacket for a very middle of the road price. Time will tell how hot it can handle but thus far its been tolerable (if you aren't a nancy) in 85F. April 10, 2014

Kenneth R asked: I ordered this jacket in a 40 and the sleeves are so tight I can't bend my arms.I normally where a 40R in a suit jacket and a med jacket. I am 5' 8" and 156 lbs. I have a 38" chest, 32.5" waist.I am returning for an exchange but I am not sure on getting the 42 or the 44. After watching the video on the jacket there is no way I am near Buzz-saw's size and he is in a 44. Could anyone help in this decision? Aug 8, 2014

michael y: Hey Ken, i got this jacket last fall and really like it. But i bought and sent it back 3 times before i got the right size due to availability and my impatience. I ended up with my normal jacket size of 42. You are right about the sleeves they are tight. i found the jacket does break in a fair amount....but a jacket size smaller like the video say??? No way. Unless this thing stretches a lot more there is no way i could be comfortable in a 40...i bought that size first and it was TIGHT.

If i use the liner i can't have the elbow armor in the shell...its just too tight. Without the liner I'm ok 9 months later with moderate use. Im about 5'11' and 180, 33 waist 42 chest.

Joel D: I found this jacket to be ill fitting as well the arms were really tight so I found myself wearing the jacket without the elbow protection also the arms are not quite long enough. The waist is way to loose as well and lets wind blow up the jacket. I am 6"2 and I bought a 44 so I wouldn't go any larger than 42 bud .Also I found the pocket system at the front of the jacket to be a bit bulky across the chest and not really use full on a good note the air ventilation seems to work well Aug 8, 2014

KAMRAN B: I'm 5'8", 170 lbs, 41" chest with athletic body & I ordered size 42" which fits fine to me.
it looks like Kenneth size is close to mine so I think 42" should be better , I can imagine size 44 without liner would be lose for me so I think 42" should fit better

Brett M: Hi Kenneth

I got a size 56 jacket. Not a bad fit a little big around the waist and the end of the sleeves . But unless you get it tailor made its hard to get a perfect fit.

A shopper asked: Can this jacket be used for cold weather? say 40 F Dec 5, 2013

michael y: To answer your question I believe it all depends on your base layer. I use a base layer from hot chillys top and bottom long sleeve a thermal long sleeve top layer and levis jeans and am fine at 50. Hot Chillys I use for skiing and road cycling as my base layer and are great to about 20ish degrees. But at 50mph or so for a few hours its a different story. I purchased a 1 piece weather proof suit for colder weather and rainy riding and can ride at 30 degrees all day in a sweat shirt and jeans. Dec 5, 2013

Thomas K: I would think so. I live in New England, and with the liner in, and a warm sweater as an added later, the leather zipped with the included cowl should be fine...might need to order a size up if you plan to use it regularly in cold weather... Dec 5, 2013

Mohamed M asked: if i want to make combine between this jacket and (Alpinestars Track Protection Vest) to wear the vest under this jacket for more protection, so does they fit correctly together, because iam new biker and i have harley davidson street bob 2013 thats why i want to buy curiser classic jacket with more protection for me?

marco k: Hi Mohamed, i dont know the Alpine Track Pritection Vest, but this jacket is very comfortable, the size is a bit large so you have room inside if you want dress something extra. You also can buy a exta size, this jacket has a good protection on the back, shoulders and elbows, I think that's enough. ( just if in your plan is test the ground on each corner get an armor... LoL) Sep 18, 2013

A shopper asked: If yes, is it CE rated? How many pockets are inside? Is the liner quilted? Is the liner padding polyester or some other textile? Feb 17, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Roxrider: CE rated. I believe this information is included in the description of the item. I will probably replace the back protecter in the near future, as it is less than adequate, but this is common for back armor in a jacket at this price point. Apr 27, 2013
Reply to Roxrider Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
jpavlick: The elbow and shoulder armor are CE rated. The back protector, is not. There is 1 pocket inside the jacket, as well as 2 pockets on the outside. The liner is quilted. I do not know what it's made of. Feb 18, 2013

DrTK: Ce1 armor in elbows and shoulders...3 internal pockets in both the liner and the jacket...liner is quilted and I believe sort polyester material, though I am not sure about that. Apr 1, 2013

Thomas K: The jacket, for me, was a bit small, so I ordered a size up to accommodate clothing beyond a T shirt. With a sweatshirt under, and the liner in, it fits comfortably. It is a touch roomy in warmer weather, but I am not the "skin tight leather" kind of guy anyway.... Jan 22, 2015

A shopper asked: Hello Zilla's
I am wondering if this is the latest model scout jacket that, RicerRoad calls as "MEN'S NEW SCOUT JACKET". I like to buy the latest one. So my question to you: Is this product same as the new scout?

The part number listed here"11/J/3382" (for size 40) doesn't match with the MFR part number on RiverRoad website "09-3550."

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Christopher E: By all description it is the same jacket. Maybe Revzilla attached an inventory number to it. When ordering it may be smart to call customer service, just to be safe...but from what I can tell, it's one in the same. I love this jacket...! I haven't ridden in °90 heat yet. But think it will perform just as well as it has so far. Great quality and fit. Feb 12, 2014
