Best Leather jacket ever.....
Though it's pricey, the Clash is probably the nicest leather motorcycle jacket I've ever owned. I would suggest going up one size - I typically wear a size large jacket or shirt (6'2" 190lbs, 34" waist#, and the XL Clash fits me perfectly - like it was custom made for me. Looks great on the bike, and looks great off the bike with boots and t-shirt.

The day I received it, I took it down to NYC with my wife to visit friends. We went to our favorite bars from our past life together in the Big Apple, and you would have thought some weird science experiment had turned me into Brad Pitt or Ryan Gosling. Absolute perfect strangers kept asking what brand my jacket was. After a few college girls declared that I was a "DILF", my wife amusingly announced the jacket could NEVER be worn out to bars again unless she was with me. I have since taken the jacket out on cold days on the bike without complaint - it cuts the wind and does the job it's supposed to. The liner is warm enough for wearing only a long sleeve underneath in cold weather, yet cool enough on hotter days with a t-shirt. The collar was stiff at first when buttoned up in the cold, but it's breaking in nicely. Make sure to get both the elbow and shoulder pads - both will be needed if you go down, and they do make you feel a little more "bullet proof" when riding.

Sadly, my other leather jackets are all collecting dust right now in the garage/big boy toy closet. I caught my 17 year old son walking back into the house after wearing my Clash to school last week, so now I have to hide it. "Wear one of my other ones, but not this one!" I told him. You know you've got something special when a teenage boy is "borrowing" his dad's jacket. Think back to your own teenage years....now can you remember a time when you actually WANTED to wear the old man's jacket?? My dad's jackets all looked like something from the movie Fargo. I wouldn't have been caught dead in anything the old man wore. And yet, there was my fashion-snob teenage son, be-bopping into the house wearing my Clash, then smiling sheepishly when he saw me staring at him. "Oh...I thought you were on a business trip..." he said. "Caught an early flight," I replied. He's now begging me for one of his own #it seems that the girls loved the jacket#. I told him I'm going to wait to see how much taller he grows in the next years....then we'll talk.

So if you want the last leather jacket you'll ever wear, buy the Clash. You will love it. Just take my advice and don't wear it out with your wife or girlfriend, because you WILL get a lot of compliments from random women.

And hide it from your teenage son.

Premium jacket, premium price, but great value!
The jacket is very, VERY high quality, and even though the price tag is higher than most jackets (especially without armor), it's a definite head-turner and looks great. I would say that this jacket is a bit like Apple computers compared to PCs...they're more expensive compared to other brands and competitors, but the build quality and design aesthetics are on point which equates to a far better value down the line.

I'm 5'8" at 150lbs and the SM that I ordered fits perfectly. I was able to wear a hoodie underneath, but was definitely snug (not in a too constricting way).

DON'T BUY THIS JACKET! ;-)
Don't buy this jacket! You and I will inevitably cross paths at some point. You will see me. I will see you. You will feel bad for not looking as good as I do in this jacket. (see pic.). I will see you not looking as good as I do and think "poor guy". And then what? You can hand it over to me and be on your merry way.
Seriously though, this is one very cool jacket. It just arrived today and it fits perfectly. If it helps- I am 5' 11.5", 176 lbs, 33" waist, with an athletic build- by athletic, I mean having a runners build. Slim waist, large chest, muscle and sinew etc. Not a gym-rat, body builders body. If you are the later, get the Ronin tough guy (I did consider that at first but when I saw the Clash, I had to see it in the flesh). The fit is snug but I like it. You don't want baggy in this jacket.
I am British but live the American Dream and it really speaks to me on both counts. The quality and style is fantastic. It smells so good. The leather is flawless. Even the lining detail says "up yours". I struggled more being a vegetarian with a leather jacket than I did with the price. This is heritage stuff. Never gonna take it from me. Not without a fight. This is as stylish as a Belstaff, but a fraction of the price.
Sure, it doesn't have armor, but I will get that with my earned Zilla Cash- Duh!
Go on. Treat yourself. You deserve it. But I did warn you about not looking as good as me.

AWESOME
Got the jacket ultra fast from Revzilla, kudos to them for the great service. The Clash looks incredible and fits really really well. I got the oxblood and - contrary to Anthony's review - it really does not look that over-the-top, the red is deeper and more muted than in the photos. Everything is fantastic, my only gripe is the arm lining is a bit flimsy and pulls/tears very easily if you have velcro-type gloves inserted in the sleeves. Other than that, amazing!

Oxblood for an edgier look
I'll begin with saying that I have gotten plenty of looks and compliments on this jacket - I went with the oxblood red.
It may seem edgier than the black option, and it is, but I agree with a previous reviewer: I wouldn't describe it as 'over the top" like Anthony did, but I get his point.
The pics on the product page make it seem like it's got a sheen or slight shine and brightness to it - not exactly the case. Rest assured, it is a little more subdued than it appears in the images, and not as bright. To give you an idea of the color, Google "oxblood" and see an image of the color - imagine that color with a slightly matte leather surface. Personally, I dig it; and so do the random strangers that check you out wearing it. Be warned, not for the faint of heart - make sure you have the personality to pull it off as you mingle with others - total rock star status for sure, haha (think James Dean meets Steve McQueen, rolled into Slash from GnR).
Fun aside, into the rest:
As you'd expect from any leather product, it'll be a little stiff out of the box but will absolutely break in with a couple of wears and conform itself to your individual fit. I went with the armor package additionally when I got this. It's kind of annoying to have to get it separately when the jacket already has a high price tag, but oh well (contrast to the Rokker jacket, which already comes with the armor - look for that review later). Either way, you can't overlook the value of added protection. I strongly recommend the armor as well, if your budget can swing it. With that in mind, it's easy to insert into the jacket, and I highly recommend your break in period begins with the armor inserted because it will feel totally different with or without the pads. Understand that the pads may make it appear to feel awkward, or tighter than you bargained for; but once it's nicely broken in with the armor, the fit will be spot on. RSD doesn't skimp on the quality of the leather so keep that in mind: RSD = premium leather.
Ventilation and airflow are appropriate for Spring and maybe early fall - totally depending on your location's climate. Prob not the best option for the peak of Summer - you will heat up real good in this. Again, it will depend on your individual temp tolerance. This is a leather jacket with some perforation and under arm vents, so you can make up your own mind from there.
The zippers on the sleeves are easy to feel with gloves on and I love the gussets on them. The offset front zipper is totally killer and adds to the edgy look, but also easy to reach for and zip/unzip with the right hand. The internal pockets are excellent for a cell phone or items of that size. The outside pockets on the sides are kind of small, so prob a better place for things like keys, lighters, etc. Other than that, it's made to last - a must have, in my opinion. I really wish they offered it in Tobacco brown, but love this nonetheless.
One little bone to pick:
As another reviewer noted, the lining can easily be frayed with Velcro from your gloves or other abrasive surfaces, so be careful with that.

The price tag may weed some would-be buyers out, but if you can save up for this, I'd say swallow that one-time lump sum because this one is made to last for sure.

The total look I went with, in case you're interested: Oxblood Clash jacket, Rokker Original Raw jeans, brown Icon El Bajo boots, Tobacco Mission RSD gloves, Flying Tigers Bell Vortex with tinted shield. Never fails to get double-take looks on the road, in the city streets, anywhere; and excellent protection in my opinion. My reviews for the above items will be coming soon.

Beautiful Jacket w/ Awkward Fit
Note: Revzilla did not have the jacket in my size in stock, so I (regrettably) purchased it elsewhere.

First, to compare... I'm 5'9, 175lbs and typically wear a EU50/US40 in most jackets (Dainese/Revit/A*). I fit the RSD Rocker & Ronin in Medium perfectly. I prefer a snug, close-to-the-body fit.

I had a Roland Sands "Rocker" jacket in size Medium that fit perfectly, constructed very well, and was clearly a high-quality jacket. After seeing the Clash, I preferred it's more-'70s-era styling over the Rocker's '50/'60s inspired feel. Both jackets have the asymmetrical zipper and upon viewing just photos of the jackets, they appear to be fraternal twins separated at birth. Looks and quality are one thing, FIT was an entirely different issue. Whereas the Rocker fit near-perfect, the Clash felt tighter in the chest area and the neck opening was simply too small and I could not snap the neck (on the Rocker, I could - comfortably). Note both jackets were marked Medium, but clearly every jacket fits differently even when they look similar and come from the same designer. The Clash was disappointingly ill-fitting. I could not even settle for wearing it without the neck button snap closed as there is no provision built in to allow the wearer to fold the neck flap and snap it down for comfort and stability when on the bike (like the Ronin and Tracker from RSD). I wore both the Rocker and Clash without the armor. Fit may be "too tight" with the armor in, but any larger in size, the sleeves would be too long for me.

Leather quality and construction of the Clash, on the other hand, was top notch! Not the wonderfully and perfectly distressed look of the Rocker's leather, but the Clash had a soft feel and a nice sheen to it's black leather. The YKK zippers throughout and all the snaps worked perfectly and the interior was beautiful. I desperately wanted to LOVE the Clash, especially since I regrettably and prematurely sold the Rocker for it, but c'est la vie... Additionally, as a result of my impatience and procuring the jacket elsewhere, I was facing a 15% restocking fee if I decided to return it (not so if I had just bought it from the good folks at Revzilla!!) - aaaaaaagh. I ended up exchanging it for the Ronin - another wonderful jacket from RSD and one that fit very well for me. So in the end, I'm happy. Although I did not buy it from Revzilla, I wanted to share my experience with the RSD Clash. My take-away from all this: 1) Not every jacket fits the same even in the same size from the same manufacturer 2) Patience is a virtue 3) Buy from Revzilla because return and exchanges are no hassle and thus lowers your stress level.

Good luck. Happy shopping.

Awesome jacket!!!!
I absolutely love my Clash jacket, Roland Sands hit a home run with this one. It's my first Roland Sands jacket and it likely won't be my last.

First things first, like a few other reviewers have noted, if you go oxblood, don't worry that it is going to be bright red like the video shows, it's much more subdued without Anthony's crazy studio lights and cameras. I almost didn't order it because I thought it was going to be WAY too red, but it absolutely isn't. I'll put a pic up with this review so you can see what I mean. Sorry if the orientation is off, I swear it's correct on my side of the interwebz.

Another item of note that might be helpful to anyone on the cusp between sizes... That was me as well, I'm a 44" chest, 6' tall, 200 lbs guy and I'm right at the top end of the size chart for this jacket in size L. I emailed and called to get opinions from the RevZ team and both guys I talked to were very helpful and encouraged me to try the size L first. I did and it fits like a glove. If you are my size and want to rock a hoodie under it (even a thin one) you may want to size up, but if you're like me and like to wear a t-shirt under it or a short sleeve button down, then it will fit perfectly. If you are my size and have ye 'ol beer gut you may also want to try an XL as it is snug on me with my midsection being somewhere between average & athletic but we all know that is the cut of this jacket anyways.

Highly recommend the product and that you order it from RevZ. The 30$ in Rev bucks I had from my last order paid for expedited shipping essentially. That coupled with the great web site and customer service. I couldn't be happier.

Big fan
** the color of this jacket is closer to a burgundy than it appears to be in the video (the video looks more red)

This jacket is awesome, period. It looks awesome, first perfectly (I'm 5'8" and 155lbs and I purchased a medium), and it looks pretty different than most of the jackets out there. It's appearance is loud, especially off-bike, so you need to be okay with that.

It exudes quality, both the leather and the construction. I've read that the inside can pull apart a little when taking the armor in and out but I haven't done that, so I can't comment. The pockets for your hands are a little on the small side, but it doesn't bother me. Sleeve length is great, zippered cuffs are great. Zipper on the front of the jacket is solid and smooth.

I can't comment on rain resistance but I imagine it's like any other leather jacket. I also haven't yet ridden in temps above 65 degrees, so I can't comment on breath ability. But, in the cooler temps, with just a wind breaker under it, this thing is great. Not cheap, but definitely very cool. I'm thrilled with it.

1-year review - very high quality jacket
This has been my only riding jacket for just over a year, during which time I've done about 7000 miles. I'm 6'1 with a fairly lean build at 170lb and the medium fits me perfectly.

The leather is thick yet very supple and the stitching is very high quality - no loose threads whatsoever during the time I've had it. The interior liner is nice, though I wish they had added a different material near the cuffs so that velcro glove fasteners don't snag on it.

I got it in black, and after a year the leather is very slightly fading in the shoulder area. I got the shoulder and elbow armor (statistically, back armor doesn't seem to be worth it unless it's the full track-style "hump") which fits well, though the shoulder armor doesn't go "over" your shoulder per se, just covers the outside of your arm up to the shoulder.

I feel well-protected in this jacket, but what you're paying the premium for is the style. This remains the best looking motorcycle jacket I have ever seen, on anyone. I get compliments on it nearly every time I wear it.

Great Jacket but issues with the stitching.
Comfy, looks great, smells great!

The style is awesome, and the airflow is good enough to wear the jacket despite humid 35C temperatures in the cooking pot of SouthWest China (As long as you're not pushing your bike..).

It has many, many pockets to keep keys, wallet, license, cables, spare batteries for action-cams etc.
There are a mixture of secure zips, as well as convenient pouches on the inside, and a hook-thing for attaching to a wallet/spare keys.

I opted for the official RSD CE armour inserts. These give the jacket quite a bit of weight in total, but I like it and it inspires confidence. (And it's always a laugh to watch the face of my friends/girlfriend when I let them hold the jacket and feel the weight.)

One slight issue is that after 4 months, the stitching has come loose on one of the chest-pockets.. I managed to fix it myself, with a needle and thread, but was a little disappointed since I didn't expect this issue in such a pricey jacket.

The inner lining on the jacket is smooth and luxurious, if a little bit loud, (gold, with a black skeletal rib-cage pattern) but then again if you're a rider who is considering the oxblood version of this jacket, you're probably cool with that!

The Jacket has some small grille air vents at the back, and it's also quite pleasant to open the jacket up whilst riding to cool yourself off.

If you're expecting serious rain or any sweaty activity, I'd advise against wearing white under the jacket, since the colour from the jacket leaked into my t-shirt. (4 months after buying the jacket)

Looks great with the Brown RSD Ace gloves and blue jeans.

Been using my Clash daily for the last 6 months and it still looks brand new. Roland Sands makes awesome gear using only the highest quality material. I'm always getting compliments on the jacket. I'm 5'9" 165 lbs and I wear a Medium. I use the Roland Sand Armor as well, and it is very comfortable. It's a very pricey jacket, but worth every penny.

I previously purchased this in XL and it wasn't right. I have been riding in a Scorpoion 1909 and while it is ok, I am not in love with it. I am going to sell it to a friend and get what I should have gotten in the first place: the Clash in LG. My riding habits have changed a bit since and the Hoodlux is a great base for colder temps.

Sexy and Functional had a lovechild with the RSD Clash jacket. I wanted the full shoulder/elbow/spine protection capability, but I don't care much for the loud sport biker jackets that abound. I also knew I wanted leather vs any other material. There were a number of contenders out there but, when I saw this one, I was really taken by it. It passed my safety requirements but it really took the cake with it's insanely stunning looks.

Great looking jacket!!!

Decided to go with the "buy the best gear you can when you start riding" argument and sprung for this jacket. No regrets at all! Only complaint is that $650 won't get you the matching CE armor inserts...Also, I'm 6", 180lbs and I bought a large and it fits perfectly.

Been using my Clash daily for the last 6 months and it still looks brand new. Roland Sands makes awesome gear using only the highest quality material. I'm always getting compliments on the jacket. I'm 5'9" 165 lbs and I wear a Medium. I use the Roland Sand Armor as well, and it is very comfortable. It's a very pricey jacket, but worth every penny.

i keep forgetting his name but when he reviewed it he said he doesnt recommend getting it wet.... why? i think anthony said it was dyed in a way where the leather wasnt really painted it was more like "stained" all the way through so if so... why the recommendation i live in south florida so the weather is as bipolar as a pregnant girl pms-ing one second its 150 degrees bright sun next thing you know we have a hurricane coming through.... btw the only reason i even come on this website is because of the raw reviews and the professionalism and quality in the videos... puts other websites to shame.

Do you need to apply any kind of leather protector to the coat? If so, any particular recommendation? Does RSD have a recommended protector?

So I have the jacket in Oxblood and love it. How is it recommended to clean the jacket without messing up the leather/color? The last ride produced some bugs that are stuck pretty well on the leather and I dont want to destroy it.

BEST ANSWER: RSD Responded:
"Yes, the Oxblood or any red color tends to be a bit unstable. We would recommend gently trying to clean the bugs off with a leather conditioner. We use Lexol here at the shop."

I asked what protector they would recommend using and have not had a reply. I hope this helps others with the Oxblood. Epic jacket
I have about a 38 in. chest, I'm slightly over 6 ft and I weigh about 174 lbs. What would be a good size with pads to purchase?
A shopper on Aug 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend a large. I am 5'10" and weigh 185. I tried the medium and it was pretty tight, which looked great but there is no way I was getting armor into it. The medium I also found to be short and if you're over 6' it would probably be pretty short. I went with the large and am glad.
Anybody have a picture of a female (preferably size small) wearing this jacket so I can see the fit before ordering one? Thanks!

BEST ANSWER: Oh wow sorry didn't see your response til now. I'm fairly slim athletic, about a US womens size 2 or 4. Has your wife tried on your jacket? Thank you :)
some reviews say to upsize, others say to buy snug and expect the leather to stretch. So just wondering if anyone who's had this jacket for a while now can give some feedback on how much this jacket stretches and over what period of time / how many rides? Cheers.

BEST ANSWER: I'm 5'11" 180 lbs. Ordered the large. I'm happy with it. The leather has stretched around the wrist a little but I'm certain that a medium would be too small, even if the large is a little loose on the arms. I never got the pads in so that may solve the looseness factor. It's a solid fit and I'm very close to buying the new blue one. The length is fine all around. I wear large shirts normally if that helps.
Hello. I am thinking about buying the Clash jacket but I am confused about the size. I don't know if I should get the SM size or the MD size. I like a tight fit. I am 5.8ft and I weigh 155lbs, on the thin side. Could you please give me some advice?
JungSoon C on Feb 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I think I would go with the medium, I am 6 feet tall and weigh 175. The large is a comfortably snug fit. It really depends on your body type, and you may just have to order both sizes and plan on sending one back. I love the jacket, it is well designed, uses great quality materials and is different from most motorcycle jackets. My only complaint is that the velcro on my gloves made the sleeve lining pile a bit.
What would be the best armour to get for this jacket? Forcefield armor was mentioned in the video review, but they have a lot of products available.

Thanks.

BEST ANSWER: Hey Marc-

I love this jacket, but don't have any armor in it currently. Love the look and how it fits w/o it. BUT I do have the Roland Sands "Rocker" jacket as well (last years version of the Clash) and it has Forcefield armor in it. I really like how light weight and flexible Forcefield is.

Not sure if this helps, but there you go...

Hello. I'm looking to purchase this sexy beast, I might have an issue with sizing though. Hopefully someone can help me out!
I'm 6'4", 195lbs, with a 33 inch waist, 35 inch inseam and usually wear between 42-44, or a size Large - Tall in jackets. I have long arms and a long torso, broad shoulders. I have the RSD Ronin in a Large, and it is a snug fit with no layers or armor in the jacket. How similar are the sizing between the Ronin and the Clash? I love the sculpted look of the clash, but think the XL might be too loose and big in the belly.
A shopper on Dec 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have the Clash jacket in a large. I am 6', 185 and the jacket fits snugly, but am able to get a layer or electric vest underneath. The sleeves are a good length too. Having said that my guess is that an XL might work better for you since your size large Ronin is snug. You can always exchange it. FWIW, I love my Clash jacket and it has served me well in a variety of temperatures. Even though it isn't vented I get decent ventilation with zipper half way up and sleeves open for hot days. A fit that isn't too snug offers the ability to layer in the cold and better ventilation in the warm. My 2 cents.
I'm about 5'10 and 172lbs. I normally wear a medium in shirts, soif I get the medium would it fit me or should I get a large?
kevin n on May 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am 6 feet tall and weigh 175, so we are pretty close to the same size. I bought a large and it fits well. It is big enough to fit my electric vest (a thin one, not puffy insulated) under the jacket. The sleeves are cut long and work perfectly when riding, but are a bit long when just wearing the jacket. If i zip the wrist zippers while just wearing the jacket it is fine though. If you plan to only wear the jacket with a t shirt and you like a snugger fit you might want the medium, otherwise I would go with the large. By the way, I LOVE this jacket. One of my favorites in 40 years of riding.
