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
excellent product By husband absolutely loves it! Prompt shipping and Hassel free! December 17, 2013
Awesome jacket! I was looking for a leather jacket to wear casually when I'm out to dinner or out with friends. After looking at the box stores and at the mall, I was disappointed in the options, they either seemed cheap, with very thin "leather" or were very expensive. The Barfly has thick, soft leather and a heft that gives it a quality feel. I feel like the Barfly is a less flashy version of the Ronin and looks GREAT in the tobacco finish. I haven't ordered the armor so I can't comment on that, but as the casual jacket I was looking for, it's perfect and I have ZERO regrets. I ordered a size large and am happy with the fit. I'm 5'8", 180 lbs, with a normal build. November 18, 2013
Excellent I am 5' 10" 175# with a 42-43 inch chest. The large fits me like its tailored. The sleeves are a little long just wearing it but on a bike with your arms out in front of you they are perfect. I think it fits a little small especially in the foreams with the cuffs zipped but I didn't get the jacket to be worn over a lot of layers. I don't think I would be comfortable putting this jacket on over a sweatshirt the way it fits me. Beautiful, heavy leather, excellent simple styling. great jacket. October 21, 2013
FireFly jacket... I have been looking at the RSD jackets online since they became available. I have followed his career over the decades and always like to support an American designer. Since his product is new to the market, it is hard to buy without seeing how well the construct and fitment are. Here is my assessment after viewing in person for the first time. I was in Philadelphia this past weekend and paid a visit to the new Revzilla retail/warehouse store. I initially was not over-ally impressed with any of the RSD jackets at first glance, although the leather felt nice to touch. I am always looking for riding gear and actually had found a nice casual leather Dainese jacket, however they did not have it in a size 50. I have used Dainese tracksuits in my racing days and had nothing but great results in field testing their durability. So I started to look harder at the RSD Barfly jacket. I liked the waxed aged leather feel and it really does work as a casual jacket whether it be on a motorbike or a night on the town. They only come in standard T-shirt sizes and that always bothers me. I tried on a Medium in Tobacco brown and it fit pretty well. It did not have the armor install as that is a separate purchase. I was not sold on the brown colour and asked a sales associate for a medium in black. I have a 41" chest, 32" waist, 5"7" in statue & 165lbs. I was very surprised that when they brought out the jacket in black it did not fit like the brown jacket did in Medium. The forearms were so tight I could only pinch about .5" which would leave no room for armor. They brought out a 2nd jacket and it had just a little bit more room in the forearms, but not much. I really wanted it in black, but this would not work once armor was installed. I was going to give up since brown just wasn't my thing, but one of my dear friends saw the name barfly & mentioned to me, well they should of named this jacket Firefly, and at that very moment brown became more than acceptable. I had them bring out the armor, installed it, then gave it another test fit. With the armor it fit as snug in the forearms as the black did without armor. Overall, the jacket just has a wonderful casual style sans collar and doubles as a decent riding jacket. The airflow is non-existent, but I purchased this jacket based 99% on style and for casual wear and riding. The other note of interest is the label, which states it is finely made in India as to try and curb that fact that is was made in a 3rd world country that may or may not believe in the sanctity of leather.

Excellent leather, but Iwish it came with armor at this price point. I bought this and all the armor for it. It fits me well with all armor added. It does not look bulky with the armor installed and it is a slim fitting almost euro cut, which I like. I bought a medium, I am about 5'7 with a 41 inch chest and 32 waist. It fits a bit snug around my forearms and biceps because I work out, but I like that. It doesn't impede movement when riding and I love the zippers to loosen and tighten the cuffs. Vent wise, I rode with it when the temps hit 85-90f and still was fine at highway speeds. It vents pretty well and although I was a bit warm when rolling around in the city or stopped at traffic lights. This is definitely a good spring/fall jacket. Leather is thick and durable. The color is great, I picked up the tobacco color and it looks so vintage. I hope never to test out it's abrasion or impact resistance, but I feel much safer with it on. August 19, 2013

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

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!

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
