The bestest of the bestest I love this jacket. I'm a husky guy on top, but pretty average at the waist. I usually have to buy XXL just to get the arms and chest to fit, but those are always too big at the waist and I don't get the pleasure of a little extra support from a good fit. Not so with the Barfly, XL works great for my 47-48 inch chest and fits nicely at the waist when zipped up front and on the sides -- gives me that little extra lower back support for my Monster 1200S riding position. Overall it's a 10 in my book -- great looks, excellent workmanship and pretty reasonably priced compared to the rest of the pack. October 23, 2014
Classic Cool & Modern Protection 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. Roland Sands, you know what you are doing. October 2, 2014
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.

Great jacket! Love this jacket. Great style but runs a bit small. Collar is a bit weird, but a fleece or hoodie fix it fine May 19, 2014
very nice leather jacket- Roland Sands Barfly Jacket I'm 5'10", 165 lbs. Got the size large and am happy with the fit. Can wear a fleece shirt and T underneat on cold days without being overly tight. Very nice look, and quality leather feels protective. Well made. Downside: Outer handwarmer pockets seem too small, and overall I'd have preferred a second inside zipped pocked. Overall I'm quite happy with it May 12, 2014
Very Solid Jacket The Barfly Jacket has been great thus far. I've been using it for about a year now. Initially it was quite stiff and tight fitting, but as the leather eases in it has loosened up quite a bit and has brome formed by usage. The leather seems to be very good quality and hasn't had any tears, rips, or blemishes as of yet. My only two gripes with the jacket is that the elbow armor is very difficult to secure properly and ends up being closer to forearm armor on me. I chose to leave them out. I'm also not a huge fan of the interior satin, but it's comfortable and has given me no problems yet. Pockets and small details are great, very high level of craftsmanship. For anyone worried about sizing, if it fits a bit snug, it'll probably be perfect after a few months use. February 12, 2014
Classic jacket I'm 5'9", 175...ordered a large and medium to test fit. The large was way too big. Medium is great, I definitely could not have worn the bigger size. Also got the armor and the jacket still fits well. I've read complaints about the forearms being narrow...and they are, but it has a long zip cuff if you need to adjust. I'm a big fan of the clean lines and classic styling. I wear it on and off the bike. January 27, 2014
G.D.S. Tyrannosaurus Rex Don't buy this jacket....Unless you want to ooze manliness, drip with stylish appeal, cause woman's underwear to spontaneously combust, and feel like your wrapped in the protection of a golden grizzly bear. Great jacket, excellent fit and design. I can wear it off and on the bike. Goes really well with the Icon Truant boot (brown), I'm 6'1 185 42 Chest and Large is perfect. January 9, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Daniel H: I own a BMG Montana leather jacket and I love it, but it's brown and I wanted a black leather jacket that wouldn't make me look like Brando in The Wild One. I like how simple this jacket looks. Oct 21, 2014

Nicolas M: Quality and look Mar 15, 2014

A shopper asked: I am 5'9, 145 lbs, slim build, is the small about the right size for me? Feb 12, 2014

Michael P: 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. Feb 12, 2014

Justin S: I'm about 5'10 and 169 lbs, slim build and I find the Medium a good fit, I am (going on your weight) a bit bulkyier through the shoulder and chest, however I wanted to be able to fit a hoodie underneath if need be in the winter. Hope that helps. Feb 12, 2014
Reply to Justin Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Jonathan M: I am the exact same build. I own a small. It fits perfectly with just a t-shirt, but is too small to layer a heavyweight hooded sweatshirt underneath. not sure about armor, since i do not own any. Feb 12, 2014

Jason L: I think you might find the arms tight if you are trying to put armour in the elbows everything else will fit correctly Feb 12, 2014

A shopper asked: 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. :)

Jeremy W: 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. Apr 17, 2014

Brian C: I have this jacket in size large. It weighs 67.5 ounces in this size. They are coming out with the same jacket in perforated leather it should be cooler but I don't know about the weight of it Apr 18, 2014

David G: Not a heavy leather, but not thin either, if I had to wear a leather in that weather it would be ok, but I might look at textile jackets instead Apr 17, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Ron S: 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!

A shopper asked: is this too warm for summer riding? Mar 10, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Marcin S: 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.

Brian C: Haven't ridden with it in weather more than mid 60's temps with nothing more than a long sleeved t shirt under it but was comfortable with that. There is no insulating liner but it is only perforated under the armpits and it is great at blocking the wind. Mar 11, 2014
