River Road Scout Jacket
Solid Jacket with Excellent Style & confort
I have four other motorcycle jackets & this jacket by far is the best jacket I have in terms of comfort , style & protection , I specially like the neck wind protection as most of my other jackets don't provide proper wind protection on the neck specially on those cold days.
I'm 5'8", 170 lbs, 41" chest with athletic body & I ordered size 42" which was a good fit so for me it was a true size.

solid, quality jacket for a good price
Like the other reviews said the jacket runs a little on the large side. I have a 47 inch chest and the 46 fits perfect. This is a quality jacket with good styling and huge pockets. It's warm but not too hot without the liner, and with the liner it is a perfectly reasonable winter jacket. I've ridden below freezing with just the jacket and it kept me warm.
This probably is not something you are going to want to wear in the summer. In warmer weather I commute with a mesh jacket and drive around town in a t-shirt (I know, I know). I don't think I could pull this off on a hotter day. The ventilitation is good and works fine on the warmer fall days, but it's no summer jacket.
It's a good looking jacket that will serve you well in fall, winter, and spring. You could also wear it as a fall/winter jacket as it's a quality piece.

First Leather Coat
I purchased coat on line after trying it on for size at a motor cycle shop. Wanted enough room to that I could wear a layer or two underneath. I went with 48 inch. I am a 42 inch chest and 6 ft with 210lbs. Fits great. Has enough stretch in the side panels to move around. Fleece neck wrap is a great touch. Found it really warm in the late summer even with the vents open and zipper half undone, but in the fall it was great. Was warm and blocked wind. The front pockets are very useful and keep all the items you need within reach. A few friends commented very favorably on features of coat. Recommended if looking in this price range.

Good jacket for the money
I looked at a lot of jackets before I settled on this one. I am very happy with it. The jacket is heavy leather and well made. It fit pretty true to size for me. I like the having the removable armor but wish the back pad was CE. Overall I love this jacket. It looks great and fits well too. For this price I don't think I could have found a better jacket.

Excellent Style and Protection
Got this jacket a few weeks ago and I am living it. Sizing is a little larger than average so get a size smaller than you usually wear or just using the measuring chart provided. I gave received several compliments and can't wait to see how it holds up in the winter!

just excellent, I have chest 41 but after watching the video I decided to order a size 40, good fit, good ventilation, protections are not uncomfortable. the jacket looks good..., very good.

Great traditional looking cruiser jacket w modern features
First off, I recommend ordering to your size. I'm 5'8", 165 lbs, 41" chest, 32" waste, so an athletic build; the 42 is spot on. I doubt if I could have zipped up the 40, which was the next smaller size. To me the guy in the video looks like he's about to burst out of the jacket by going down one size, plus the sleeves on him look too short for a riding position. That should give you an idea.
Quality, features and comfort are great. The front hand warmer pockets are smaller than expected, but still functional, and considering that there are so many other areas to store stuff on this jacket, it isn't really worth mentioning.
