Roland Sands Barfly 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.

Love this jacket. Great style but runs a bit small. Collar is a bit weird, but a fleece or hoodie fix it fine

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
