Made for a beer belly
Ordered the XL based on the size chart (45" chest).

Sure enough, it fit great through the chest and shoulders, and the sleeves were actually long enough (My dream come true). Unfortunately, it was comically large in the stomach, I only kept it for about 20 minutes before sending it back. See my attached picture

Looked and smelled like a nice leather jacket but unless you have a huge beer belly this thing won't fit well or look good.

Fine Jacket
Cool looking jacket. Fit is very good. I'm 6'0" 205 lbs 43" chest. XL fits great. Longish arms, which I like. Not a lot of fluff with this jacket - what you see is what you get. Simple, clean styling, nice leather, nothing in bold letters. It's made in India which, for $500+ you'd think wouldn't rely on 3rd world stuff, but the craftsmanship doesn't suffer. They either get higher profits, the consumer gets better value, or we split it. But, I will acknowledge I prefer to avoid the labor outsourcing. Small complaint. It's a good jacket - you'll like it.

I absolutely love this jacket. Out of the box, the smell of the freshly waxed and oiled leather hit my nostrils like a freight train leisurely cruising at 200mph... Mmm, thats the stuff!

Once I put it on, it fit perfectly. I am 5'8" with a 44" chest & large fit just right.

This jacket oozes style with its clean design and quality material.

Bar Fly is the way to go
Love the jacket!! Fits a little tight but is starting to loosen up nicely.
I’m 6 feet tall, 186 with a 42” chest. The arms on the large would have been too long and
the jacket as a whole would have started to blouse over time so I’m glad I went with the medium. So size up.
If you can get your hands on one buy it. Worth every penny. Women love this jacket. I walked into
Whole foods with this on and I could have walked out with a lot more than groceries.

Cheers and safe riding.

Great Jacket to use on and off the bike!
I purchased this jacket because besides the long weekend rides I often commute, so I need a nice Jacket to ride and to look formal enough at the job, this jacket accomplish both really well, the leather is very nice, it's really comfortable and looks great!

Be careful on the sizing it's a bit big (and I'm a big guy).

I definetely recommend this product!

Absolutely awesome jacket!
I've always been a "good enough" kind of guy when it come to riding gear, usually buying lower-end to mid level stuff, but the first time I saw this jacket I knew it had to be mine, especially since RSD offers it in something other than basic black. In my case the brown/tobacco color immediately struck me as classy/classic.

I can't stress how amazing this jacket looks. The styling is much more understated than the Enzo, and even the Ronin, which for me was what drew me to it.

Physical construction on this jacket is A+. The leather is absolutely flawless and RSD's hand oiled/waxed process (*more on that later) really shows as the jacket has a broken-in feel right from the get-go.

Fit wise, it seems to run true to size. I'm 5'11" and run 165lbs with a 38" chest. The medium fit me perfectly, even after adding all the RSD armor (*more on that later). (You DO run an armored jacket, right?)

I bought this jacket specifically for a ~1,000 mile trip I just took. Weather ran from hot and windy to cool and windy. The venting on this jacket is top notch. At first I was a bit concerned that the jacket didn't offer any zipper vents. However, once I wore it on a ride, my concerns were alleviated. The perforated panels at the underarms do a great job wicking away pit sweat and add a cooling effect.

Now, down to the nitty gritty. There a few, and only a few, small faults I find with this jacket.

First off is the leather itself. I don't know if it's RSD's process or vendor or what but this jacket has a definite, strong odor. It's not unpleasant, but not like your typical leather smell. It WILL "stink" up your closet.

Secondly are the sleeves: they run a little tight, which makes adding the elbow armor a bit of a pain. Speaking of which, the pockets for the elbow armor seem a bit low and end up being more of a forearm armor. This also places the upper end of the elbow armor in a spot that seemed to rub my elbows a little raw. The small/tight sleeves also make it difficult to zip up all the way over a pair of gloves.

Again, these are just small complaints I have. Overall this is a great jacket. In my opinion, it looks far better than just about any jacket I've seen, especially in the tobacco color.

Is it cheap? No, but I'd be willing to bet this is a jacket that will last you a lifetime. Add to that the ability to add shoulder, elbow and back armor, along with all the pockets and it adds up to a jacket that can't be beat.

Too small and too large at the same time
It was on closeout, so I didn't pay full price. That's the good thing. At the closeout price point, it's reasonably priced. Full price seems very high for what you're getting.

Going by other reviews, I opted for the large beings I'm 5'9" 200lbs, wear a size 44 suit jacket. Yeah, not tall, rather stocky. For size comparison, I have a size Large Shift jacket [no longer made] that fits perfect. But it's 10 years old is a little long in the tooth. I also have a size XL [brand carried by a competitor] adventure jacket that fits loose for layers underneath. So, Large seemed like the right option for sizing.

So, I order the Large along with the Roland Sands pad set to go with it. The jacket is slick. It's a good looking jacket. Try it on and that's where the problem comes in. the torso of the jacket is just about perfect. The shoulders are too narrow. The arms are so tight around I can't get my forearms past the elbow, without having even put the pads in yet.

So, I do an return on the jacket, have to ship it back to Revzilla at my expense. Hate having to do returns, let alone drive to a UPS store and ship them. So, I do that the same day I get it. Then order the XL. Another week later and that shows up. I try it on and the arms are still too tight to use the elbow pads, about an inch too long, but the real problem is the torso. This thing is HUGE. Like I think I could probably fit 2 basketballs in there. How the size jumps that much from a L to XL, I have no idea. The shoulders are just right with the shoulder pads in place, but arms that are that tight and a torso that huge? This is a terrible cut that I can't see working for many people at all.

So, now I'm faced with having to return another jacket, and be out shipping again. Not to mention the matching pad set that I can not use, and can not return due to the packaging being torn up. Incredibly disappointed with this purchase and will not buy anything Roland Sands again -- or any jackets online again unless I can first try them on in store.

Great summer jacket
A lot of discussion around sizing, I tried on a XL Ronin at a local shop to get a starting point as they didn't have a Barfly. I'm 6'5" 235 48 inch chest and the XL RONIN was just too snug all around and would have gone XXL. That said most reviews suggested a looser fit with the Barfly and I agree. It should also be noted that the Barfly is boxier than the Ronin which has a more tapered cut.

I got the jacket on sale knowing that I would just take it to be tailored if needed. I wear a 34" waist in pants and while it is a nice looking jacket, looks better when tailored to one's body. It is just snug enough across the top of my back and shoulders that is should break in really nice. If you want a tighter cut off the rack go with the Ronin, also a nice jacket.

Timeless jacket that ouses style
The jacket fits better than most of the other jackets I tried on. I looked at the ronin and the clash but off the bike the cut was too aggressive for me, this could be worn to a party and would still look great.

Could recommend a classier jacket that's on the market right now.

Have any BIG guys tried this jacket? Im 6' 3" and 290. Usually a 3x will fit me fine, but I'm wondering if it is an athletic cut (around the waist) or if it is more roomy.
RichFo on Aug 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm 6.1 275. I have a beer gut and it fit me fine except it was not long enough. I have a long torso.
This is a 3x. I will have to send back. I wish it would have fit, nice jacket.
I am 5'9, 145 lbs, slim build, is the small about the right size for me?
A shopper on Feb 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Depends on the fit you want but you'll likely want the small. I'm 5'11 and 155lbs and I got the medium. At 42 inch chest or so I think I could have gotten away with the small. I sometimes wish I had if only to get a smaller waist. The only issue might be the sleeves which with armor can be tight in the forearms but I don't think you'd see much if any wider sleeves from size small to medium anyway. Without the armor the sleeves have plenty of room.
How heavy is this jacket?
I live in Singapore, and the weather here is hot and humid year round.
But I’m more concerned about the weight. :)
A shopper on Apr 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hard for me to answer this one because this is my first leather jacket and I have nothing to compare it to. I have a scale that I left at work. I can weigh it at a later time to get you a specific weight. It feels heavy. I'm 5'9" and 195 lbs. I got a large. It fits slim but comfortable. I've rode it twice now. Once today with long sleeves underneath in the mid 40s. No problem there and was warm. Also had a ride with a tee shirt in the high 60s and was comfortable. I'm pretty sure I'll still be comfortable in the 80s and possibly the 90s. I too am in a hot and humid location for the summers. I plan on wearing it all year. Another perk about this jacket is it's great both on and off the bike. A lot of style points.
What size would Buzzsaw wear in the Barfly? Thanks.
Shawn H on Jan 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I think he is a little thicker than me. He would probably need a large I guess.
I am 5'10" 175lbs. I wear a 38 sport coat, large roland sands tshirt, medium buttondown, 32in waist.
I bought a medium barfly. It fits perfectly, high quality, and looks great.
Gotta love RSD!
Any thoughts on this jacket compared to thelp Joe Rocket 92??? Thanks!
A C on Aug 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Just got this jacket so can't speak to how it holds up, but do have initial impressions. I'm 5'11" and 165 lbs. Bought a Medium and it is a perfect fit so if you are trying to decide size, go smaller as they run big. Quality appears to be excellent. One gripe (and I often have this with jackets of all types): If you have an athletic build the waist is too big when zipped. Medium probably has a 42" inch chest with a ?? 35" waist. Makes for extra material if your waist is 30".
is this too warm for summer riding?
A shopper on Mar 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This is definitely a summer jacket. It's really breathable. I live in victoria, Australia and wear this jacket. When it's really hot there is no escaping the heat But as long as you're not standing still the airflow keeps you nice and cool. The breathability could be a minus when temperature drops at night. You could get a little chilled.

It's a great jacket. Beautifully made. You should get it.
Is the barfly cut similar to the tracker? My sizing falls under the medium category but when I got the tracker in medium it was too tight around the shoulder and arm area. I ended up exchanging it for a large. Everything fits good except with the large the length on the arm is a little too long and the length on the torso is long as well for me. I'm 5,7, 160 lbs. 41" chest.
Roberto A on Aug 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have not tried the tracker but I am 5'11", 175 ibs.42" chest and although the barfly is a little tight in the arms it fits great and feels good, Should get better with age. I think the large would be too big for you.This is a great jacket at the sale price and worth trying.

Will the d3o evo pro protection work with this jacket?
michael k on Aug 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I asked Revzilla this about alternate protection. Here is their response.

Good question, as an alternative we find that Klim D3O fits will in most jackets:

Barfly or Ronin?
A shopper on Oct 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I never tried on the ronin, but I have 2 friends that have them. They fit a lot slimmer than the barfly. I think they both bought their ronin's a size larger than they would usually wear and took it to a Talior to have it adjusted from there. The barfly is a little boxy, it breathes decently for a leather jacket. The sleeves can feel a little tight, but overall I like it. I can get it on with a sweatshirt too, even though the sleeves can be tight.
Any provision for attaching the jacket to pants?
A shopper on Nov 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No there were not.
