Roland Sands Mission Leather Jacket
Not only the RSD Mission Jacket is perfect!...
Just got my RSD Mission Jacket today. First of all revzilla - I love your perfect made youtube chanel - you made it very easy to get the perfect view on the jacket and this made it very easy for me to decide which jacket to choose. The postal service to Switzerland was fair and very, very fast! 2 days to Switzerland - just amazing. And revzilla manages the customs just perfect! I love that kind of service! The Jacket is how I expected - high Roland Sands quallity! Looking forward to order again from revzilla! I Like :)

I love that this jacket has a very distinct look and accommodates the RSD armor.
As has been said the arms are a little tight, even more so with the armor installed... and even MORE so if you try to layer up with even just a flannel underneath. This takes some getting used to, but I personally feel better that it's snug. I use elkskin roper gloves and it's way too much effort to try and zip the sleeves completely shut and buttoned over them so I don't bother, just zip as far as I can and let the button flap open.
The padded accents on the shoulders and arms seem more pronounced since I've been using the armor. I went to a meet-up and someone had the jacket without the armor and his padded accents didn't pop as much as mine.
Airflow is surprisingly good (almost too good on cold mornings).
The inner lining is tearing where the back meets the shoulders so that's kind of a bummer. The jacket doesn't fit super tight on me, but I do have broad shoulders. Riding with clip-ons in a tuck position may have contributed to this.
I'm more than satisfied with how soft this jacket is right out the gate. It wasn't nearly as stiff as others I'd tried on and had that already broken in feeling.
PLENTY of pockets. Just like Anthony says, the net pocket is perfect for a hat (snap back, fitted, beanie... I've used them all!). The iPod pocket is a little tight if you're actually trying to run a wire and connect it, the grommet is on the opposite side I would expect it to be on for the iPod classic/iPhone 4G. Better to use bluetooth. One of the front pockets has a clip for your keys which I've found is a nice detail to keep a small garage opener in place.
Overall it's a great jacket. I'll definitely be sticking with the RSD line in the future.

Really stylish, but don't forget to order a size up!
Once again, I was saved bu Revzilla's reviews. I was instructed to order one size up, and I'm glad I did.
The jacket is really good looking, the build quality is superb, the access to the pockets is excellent, and the air flow is better than I expected.
Unfortunately, I found using the shoulder protection extremely uncomfortable, what can't be said about the other two (elbow and back armors).
I would definitely recomend this item. It looks good, offers a good protection, and it's a bang for the buck.
And prepare to have a leather smelling wardrobe!

The jacket has a nice snug fit which I like. The jacket is made beautifully and the quality is excellent.

Very cool jacket, like a second skin...
Product has a very high manufacture quality.
The functions are well designed/ engineered.
E.g. the pockets location and size for the armor aver well designed and implemented. Only the Velcro used for the armor pockets easily stick on the inner lining when you try to insert the armor. Potential for improvement...

Very stylish, weirdly shaped, arms too snug.
Arms are SO snug in fact it feels like a straight jacket. I like it! Ordered the armor which made it worse, so I swapped out the flat RSD armor for articulated D30 in the elbows and shoulders. Huge improvement. It's a very cool piece. Old school.
But it's shaped kinda odd. Hard to describe. The shoulders hunch s bit, and the neck closes off pretty abruptly. My extra girth doesn't help matters and I feel like the collar is squeezing my neck, but not to the point of discomfort really. The snug fit avtually translates to a feeling of security on the bike. Kinda nice. But it's still being broken in as we speak.

Very happy with the Mission jacket from RSD. Cannot fit any better. I purchased xl, im 6'3 190#. Good air flow coming in from the inner elbow area. Have not purchased the armor for it yet. Great Jacket. Thanks RSD and Revzilla.

Great jacket the fit is as described on the video on the site. I received the Jacket within 4 days of ordering. Have gotten many compliliments on the style of the jacket. My only complaint is I wish the jacket came with the armor. Even buying it separately I'm still happy with the purchase.
