Great looking jacket and functional!
Purchased the oxblood, color is much richer and deeper than pictured. Fit is snug w armor but comfortable. Beautiful jacket, would recommend to others. As always the Revzilla customer service is awesome if have any fit issues.

Great Fashion Functional Jacket!
I have lots of jackets and 6 bikes: 3 modern and 3 vintage. I bought this jacket primarily to go with my vintage bikes. It is perfect - great, soft leather and beautiful. I am 5'8", 160 lbs and normally wear a EU 48 or 50. The medium fit perfectly. If you like fashionable gear that's very high quality this jacket is worth a look. The separate armor fits perfectly and doesn't make the jacket bulky in any way.

Great looking jacket + protective
This is the first leather motorcycle jacket that I've gotten (in 40 years of riding) that looks attractive and comfortable enough to wear as 'normal' clothing sans bike. Medium happens to fit me perfectly which is a big plus (the ICON Hypersport Prime in Medium, for example is just a hint 'baggy' on me but not enough to go down a size). The add-on armor is lightweight and does not add a lot of heft, still I skipped on the back protector and instead wear an ICON Stryker vest w/back protector under it.
The actual OX BLOOD color is darker than in the video. The color in the video looks like fresh oxygenated blood whereas the actual color is more like dried blood (note I also would have been happy with an oxygenated blood color). I'm really happy with the jacket. I be stylin' it fo sho... (I don't really talk like that, but those words suggest the correct emotion).

Fit is true to size - caveat!
Like everyone else, I agree this jacket is incredible. Everything about it just seems like perfect quality. It's beautiful.
I usually find most American destined/designed MC gear are not true to size. So, since the XL oxblood Clash was out of stuck, I pulled the trigger on the large. I have a 46" chest, and often can get away with it. I justify it as many XL products are designed for men with guts, and I like a trim look.
This one was too tight, even a bit tough to button the collar.
I ordered a large in black, as the red is perhaps a bit too loud for me anyway. I will have them both side by side for a few days, and will decide which to keep!
Anyway, measure yourself, and choose the size that accurately corresponds.

I bought this to use when riding my harley. Love the thing even on a hot if you have it on and just leave it unzipped you still stay cool. Even when it cold out its still pretty warm if it not enough I ware a hoodie under it and then I'm great.

Style & Quality for Slim Folks
*Big note up front* Roland Sands swapped the Shoulder and Elbow armour in this jacket without telling anyone. You need shoulders for the elbows and elbows for the shoulders! I didn't believe it at first, but the size of the pockets is clear. I even had Revzilla check three jackets and they were surprised to confirm my suspicions. So...swap em!
Frankly, I think this is my favourite jacket in the world. It oozes quality and style, fits me well, and will last me a long time. This jacket is meant to be stylish, to be worn slim, and make a statement.
I did a lot of research before picking the single most "me" jacket available out there today. I actually bought a Roland Sands Ronin as well, and I was really torn between the two for some time. The Ronin's a little classier and easier to wear open because it's not double breasted, but finally I decided that the lapels on the clash will fold open like a suit jacket if I train them to.
Now, my ADV Sports track jacket is way more technical and far better for what it does, but I walk into a place looking like a Power Ranger in it. I walk in somewhere in this Clash jacket and people get a very different impression. There's a good chance it's not "you" but I have a feeling you already know one way or the other.
Everything else is pretty much just how it's described in the video.

Outstanding leather jacket with a lot of style
I am 5' 11" 165 lbs and ordered a large, which fits perfectly (medium would be too small), with and without the D3O armor for shoulders, elbows and back. The oxblood is darker than in the video and is spot on. Very well made and the leather is the best. Highly recommend if you like a more edgy style. You will not go unnoticed or be disappointed. Very pleased with this jacket.

The Bee's Knees
An outstanding quality jacket. Looks are stunning. Got it in red and it has a nice dark crimson color that's not too outlandish. Fits perfectly with a medium (165 lbs, 5'8", wingspan longer than height) and armor with in. I wear this during the Texas summer (90-100 degrees) with no issue as long as I am moving. The only downside is that the jacket is relatively pricey, especially when you factor in buying armor.
