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 25 25
Pleasantly surprised I recently purchased the River Road Scout leather jacket and am pleasantly surprised with the product. I typically prefer jacket with a slimmer European cut but this one is more streamlined than I thought it would be. Leather feels durable without being too stiff. And the style is great. When you get off the bike it doesn’t look like you have on a hefty motorcycle jacket. It features venting to help keep cool but I haven’t had the opportunity to test it out in the warmer temperatures. Overall, I like the jacket and it cost me approximately $200 less than some of its competitors. March 2, 2015
Good bang for your buck Designed to fit over a t shirt or thin shirt. Good protection. February 3, 2015
Daily commuter Fit: I'm 6'-1" at 185lbs. Usually a size 44 so that is what i ordered. Arm length is perfect. With the elasticized leather from the armpit to waist, the jacket will expand or contract some for you waistline. As another review mentioned, I too wish it were an inch longer in the torso. Two inches would even be better. Armor: Shoulders and elbows are good. Back is just thin foam. I have a backpack 95% of the time, otherwise I would upgrade. The leather is thick and would hold up well in a slide, yet it is finished well and soft to the touch. Comfort: Ribbing on shoulders allows for a great range of arm movement. Comfortable in both warm and chilly riding temps. Below 45deg out and I will likely switch to my textile. Haven't been in temps above 80deg, but at 80, with the vents all open, i was comfortable as long as I wasn't stuck at a long red light. Dampness from fog or very light rain had beaded off. Not planning to test heavy rain. Pockets: Darn near perfect. The "hand warming" pockets on the outside are small. I keep meter change in one and a bridge toll reader in the other. Empty, you can just fit your fist in. But, they are small to accommodate the giant full chest pockets. Pens, keys, tire gauge, etc. They are each 12" deep and 6" wide. Inside the jacket, on each side, is a small elastic dump pocket. There is also one vertical zip pocket on the inside left chest. Style: A nice blend of classic and modern. My favorite thing about this jacket, and the main reason I bought it, is the lack of advertising. Not a single name or logo can be found on the outside of this jacket. Who wants to pay more to be a rolling billboard? It is now my go to jacket for all but two scenarios. Rain and road trips. February 2, 2015
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

Bahaa K: The many reviews, the best bang for the buck including the armors. Many features. Jan 21, 2015

Cesar G: Looks great, seems to be of great quality, and has many useful features. Dec 27, 2013
Frank M: I was previously looking at Harley brand jackets. RR Scout seems as good, but 3/4 the price. We'll find out. Also, staff at Revzilla was awesome when I called today to ask about jackets. I wish I had the guy's name; I was impressed with the service.

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
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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

Kevin M asked: The reviews say that the back protector that comes standard in this jacket is pretty worthless. Question is, what are people switching it out with? I would rather not cut or modify other protectors Jan 23, 2015

Brett M: Hi Kevin

I have not had a problem with the back protection. When the jacket is on you don't notice it there.

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
