Roland Sands Barfly Jacket
I absolutely love this jacket.
Fits like it was taylor made for me. (I am the same dimensions as the guy modelling in the video) Medium.
Pros: Understated, minimal branding, looks fantastic, outstanding quality, makes you feel awesome, a biker jacket that will pass as casual wear, handy internal pouches, accepts armour.
Cons: A bit tight across the back if reaching for the bars (no armour) but should break in over time. Note: I desired a snug fit anyway. No phone/ipod pocket as featured on the Ronin.
Very, very satisfied overall, it is an excellent product.

Nice jacket, athletic fit
I am 6' 3", 210 lbs, and got the XL in tobacco. It's hard to find standard sizes that fit my frame, and I was concerned that the XL might be too wide in the midsection but the L would be too short in the arms. The XL fits very nicely. The cut is relatively slim, so I'm happy with the fit around the torso, and the arm length is a bit more generous than some other brands in this size.
The quality of construction is very good, and the styling is simple and classic. The leather is thick enough, but it's not stiff.
The armor (not included) is a nice addition. It's made of three layers of material, and each layer is able to move mostly independently, so it's comfortable and not bulky. The elbow pad placement puts them mostly in the forearm, so it does tighten up the already slim sleeves in the forearm area. Range of motion is still good because, while the forearms are tight, the upper arm is fairly loose.

Great modern jacket with a vintage style
Jacket is very comfortable and fits perfectly. Great looking jacket that you could definately wear out without feeling like you are wearing a bike jacket.

Beauty and Comfort
This jacket is absolutely gorgeous. Worth every penny and fits true to the given size charts. It's purpose built for riding with high quality leather and easy to install armour. It breaks in very nicely and looks good anywhere you take it. I highly recommend purchasing the Barfly Jacket or any other Roland Sands jacket from Revzilla.com
You won't be disappointed!

Very happy with purchase
I'm 150lbs 5'11 41" chest and the medium fits very well. Even with the armor it's snug but not too tight in the shoulders. I wish it were a little smaller in other areas but I can't count that as a fault since I have a slight build. This will already be close-fitting (perfect) for what most people are looking for in the size. Armor, though not perfect, fits pretty well once you kind of work it in and even the back protection isn't really noticeable unless you're looking.
I'm glad I chose this over the Ronin.. I was worried the simpler styling would be boring in comparison but now that I have the jacket, I wouldn't trade if offered. There are plenty of cool features and the quality is very evident in person.

Great looking jacket, very good quality
Very comfortable, good looking jacket. I'm 5'11, 180lbs with a 40 inch chest and the medium fits me well, if not a little tight. I'm not sure how it will fit with the armour. The only bad thing is the armour isn't included.

Excellent finish, little tight across the chest and shoulders
I found it to be one of the best jackets I have ever purchased in my 25yrs of riding. It is comfortable to ride in, and has just enough pockets and features without being too plain, or too many and trying too hard to be a swiss army knife of jackets with a million features.
