Great product for the money. Very good quality Great product for the money. Very good quality!!!! October 12, 2015
1 major flaw I bought this jacket less than a year ago. I have loved it the entire time I've had it. It's gone through winter, rain and hot days. It adapts to all weather conditions. That's why I was so disappointed when I noticed about a month ago that it was tearing. The fabric material has torn open on both sides of the back at my shoulder blade area. I take care of this jacket, it gets hung up when not being worn. The rest is in good shape but there seems to be a material or design flaw that causes the back shoulder areas to degrade. I've seen other reviews where people have the same problem. Its an awesome jacket but I think a jacket should last more than 9-10 months. June 23, 2015
A good jacket for the money. I am pleased with the jacket. I like how it is longer so that the back of your waistline does not get cold. It's a nice looking jacket. The only con I can think of is the top strap should be a little longer, it's a little tight. March 26, 2015
Survived a fall very well. I just fell in this thing today, so I finally feel like I can give a fair review. This thing held up amazingly well, all things considered. I fell at about 30mph, and slid entirely on the left side of the jacket. No major damage other than a couple small seam splits. I'm very impressed. This jacket is VERY warm, hot summers are very warm even with all the vents open and moving. However, it's not unbearable and it does very well in the winter. There are small design flaws, things like the liner buttons ripping easily and the velcro wearing out the vents quickly, but all of this can be overlooked considering the price and featureset of this jacket. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a dependable and cost-effective jacket. March 17, 2015
Great jacket for the money The jacket is great, good for summer and fall (only seasons I've had it so far), and it has served well. My only complaint is that the buttons the fasten the sleeves of the inner liner to the outer shell broke the first time I took the jacket off. Other than that everything has been good.

Taos river road jacket is poor quality My partner and I bought Taos motorcycle jackets (men's and women's) from Revzilla in April and had them shipped to New Zealand. We've had issues with them ever since they arrived. We only ride motorcycles on the road and only on weekends with no crashes so I have no idea why these jacket would rip so easily. Both jacket have ripped at the upper sleeve seem and my parters jacket has also had the velcro fastenings pull off. We bought these jackets online especially so we could get a better deal on good quality jackets. I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced such poor quality from the Taos jacket and if so, why are you selling them?? We've only had them a few months, only ride weekends, never fall, and hardly ever ride in bad weather. It's really sad to see a jacket that's supposedly designed to protect you rip for absolutely no reason. We took them into the local motorcycle shop to see if we could get them repaired somehow and the guy behind the counter told us not to bother and to just buy new jackets! We're very disappointed.

Great "modern classic" jacket at a good price I bought this jacket as a cold weather solution for use on my Goldwing, so I use it in conjunction with a heated jacket liner. My review will be with those conditions in mind. I was glad that Revzilla included a product review video and a revised sizing chart for the Taos, otherwise I would have ordered a jacket that was far too big. I have a 43" chest, and the medium jacket fit me nearly perfectly. The Taos runs larger than you'd expect it to, so be sure to look at the Revzilla sizing chart before you buy, and don't rely solely on what sizes of gear you've bought in the past. I've had a number of rides with the jacket now, in temperatures ranging from the high 30's to the low-mid 70's. I've found that I can wear this jacket with nothing but a polo shirt or T-shirt and be comfortable down to about 50-55 degrees. With my heated jacket liner in place, I can wear a single shirt, run the liner on 50% power, and be comfortable down to the low 40's. With the liner at 75% power (and a single shirt, mind you), I'm comfortable into the low 30's. I imagine that on 100% power and with a sweatshirt included, I'd be comfortable into the teens or lower. I've not yet removed the jacket's insulated liner to see how comfortable it is without, but I imagine that I could wear the jacket into the 80's with no insulating liner and the vents all opened. Keeping in mind that I'm riding a Goldwing, I don't think I'll be able to evaluate the airflow characteristics of the Taos very well, as I have quite a large fairing blocking air that would otherwise be flowing through the jacket. I like the "modern classic" look of the Taos. It has a very contemporary design that's mercifully unadorned with boy-racer company logos. In fact, I've received a number of compliments from coworkers about the flattering cut of the jacket, and many of those co-workers don't even ride motorcycles. I think many years from now, the style of this jacket will still look good. If there were one thing that I wish could be changed, it would be to add a way to cinch in around the chest just a little bit. The adjustment straps around the waist did a good job, but when I sit down on the bike the jacket rides up just a hair and the chest area balloons out a small amount. If there were some sort of adjustment strap that could cinch in the chest by about an inch, I think the jacket would fit perfectly when seated. At least on a Goldwing. Stylish, comfortable, warm, and doesn't break the bank. For what I need, the Taos does a great job. October 27, 2014
Good value for the price. The jacket works very well for an entry level jacket. I think it is an excellent value for the money. The fit is slightly large; I usually wear an XL and I ordered this in L and it fits perfectly. The velcro side straps could be made better, but overall the jacket is very functional. July 21, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Shawn K: Understated, classic style (I hate feeling like a walking advertisement). I like that it has very usable features (interior pockets, multiple outside pockets, good ventilation) without being dominated by zippers, flaps, buttons, and all sorts of other clutter. Basically, I wanted a jacket that was timelessly styled, solidly functional, and competitively priced. I've been impressed by other River Road products that I've purchased, so this seemed like an easy choice. We'll see how it goes. Oct 5, 2014
Paul E: got it to replace the med one that i just returned. the sizing is not as large as he says on the product review video! Aug 19, 2014
Paul E: i like the look and all the qualities. unfortunately it got to me today, and it was too small. I will be sending it back to exchange it for a lg. i disagree with your review video: if the guy in the video is wearing a med jacket the jacket must be mismarked. Aug 8, 2014
kosal s: I like the style, and price is not too high. customer rating is good. Jul 6, 2014
brent b: I wanted a good jacket that didn't kill the bank. This one also doesn't scream biker to the uninformed. I like all the pockets and the armor is the biggest reason I wanted a jacket. This one seems like it will keep me warm on the way to work and not overheat me on the way home. Mar 22, 2014
E B: Maryland gets pretty cold, and my husband looks at the weather everyday to see if it will be cool enough for him to ride. His bike has just been sitting and he's itching to take it out. Hopefully with this new 4-season riding jacket he can go out and ride like he does in the warmer months! Dec 17, 2013
A shopper asked: I've become very interested in this jacket, and am ready to spend some money. I'm a little concerned about which size to get, though, because I'm in between sizes on the chart. I'm 5'10", 200 lbs., with a 43 in. chest. Anthony mentions that the River Road jackets tend to run larger than the stated size indicates, and he recommends that if you're in between, then you're probably okay to go to the lower size. However, I also plan on using this River Road Taos jacket with a heated liner, so I'm not sure if that will bump me up into the large. I'm inclined to stick with the medium - does anyone else have any insight? Oct 4, 2014

Shawn K: I'm the guy who originally asked the question above (not sure why it didn't display my name, but there you go). I purchased the medium size jacket as suggested by Anthony in the video, and it turned out to be a great choice. I have just enough room to put a heated liner and maybe a sweatshirt underneath the jacket without issue. With the cinch straps on the waist adjusted to my personal dimensions (read: growing gut), the jacket looks almost tailor-made for me. My wife commented that I look "even more imposing than normal", which I'm not sure if that's a compliment or not, but the moral of the story is that the medium was the right choice. Thanks for the replies! Oct 8, 2014

steve b: I'm 6'3 180 with a 40 / 42" chest. I usually wear large but bought the medium based on the video advice and probably should have gotten the large although it works great for summer riding. It's a little tight for colder temperatures if I have the liner plus a couple layers on underneath but still keeps me warm. I'm a little disappointed with the velcro closing on the pockets as they are starting to tear after one year of riding.. Other than that I've been very happy with the jacket and would recommend if you're not interested in buying something more expensive it's great for the price point. Oct 7, 2014

David M: I have a medium and I can wear it over a sweatshirt with the liner, without any problems. I'm about 30 lbs lighter than you, but the height and chest is about the same. If the heated liner is very thick, go with the large. Oct 6, 2014

Tim B: I am 5'11" and I weigh 250. I have the XL and it fits fine for me. I am larger in the mid-section and that area doesn't have any extra room, but the chest area does have a little extra room. I hope this helps. Oct 7, 2014

A shopper asked: About what temperature range can this jacket be worn in? More specifically how deep into the summer could it be worn.We commonly get temperatures in the 90s and 100s in Northern California. Sep 18, 2015

Shawn K: I think it would depend on the type of bike you ride. The chest vents aren't enormous (but the back vents are a pretty good size), so if you're on a naked bike with good airflow to your torso, I think you'd be okay if you removed the jacket liner and wore a cooling garment underneath.

I ride a Gold Wing, and as such don't have nearly as much airflow to my torso. When it gets to about 75 degrees, I'm switching to one of my mesh jackets.

Josh G: I purchased this jacket to wear on a trip from East Texas to the Grand Canyon and then into southern Utah and Colorado in June. The jacket worked great with decent venting while moving. Like any other jacket it would get warm while sitting still in high 90's temperatures but was comfortable riding. Sep 18, 2015

kosal s: I worn this jacket twice in the summer, it's too hot I try to opened all vent for air flow , but help little. I used this jacket for fall, and spring only. I don't know about winter, because I didn't ride in the winter. Sep 18, 2015

Thomas J asked: trying to decide on this RR Taos or FG Jaunt T2. I like the look of both. What to do? Dec 26, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
David M: Never tried the jaunt. I've had the river road for over a year. Not to good for really cold temps, still trying to find the right layering, but no complaints for the other 3 seasons. I would buy it again. Dec 26, 2014

Thomas J: thanks, I have a heated jacket liner and found with that here in the NW I can get buy with a little lighter jacket.. and I've had river road gear and like it fine. thanks Dec 26, 2014
Stan D: Hi, I'm very pleases with the Taos jacket. I like how it looks and feels. It's pretty versatile between the liner and opening vents. I've tested it at least once in a descent shower and didn't get wet. The only thing I would have liked is an auxuiliary snap to snap to the top crossover strp down when unsnapped. THis would allow me to open the top with the fabric and snap flapping in the wind. I can tuck it inside the jacket but it's not secure. But, not complaining, very pleased. Dec 26, 2014

Tim B: I have been very pleased with the Taos jacket. I have had it for almost two years and everything still works and looks great. You can go wrong with this jacket.
Hope this helps!
