Just like Roland's many custom bikes, the Ronin gives you everything you love about the days of yesteryear along with the convenience of modern functionality. 

Features:

  • Detailed café style, with shorty snap collar and front zip pockets
  • RSD Limited Set hand finished washed and waxed cowhide (Main body leather thickness 1.2mm)
  • Performance riding fit, with rotated, pre-curved sleeves, dropped back length, and relaxed collar opening
  • Perforated leather interior trims
  • Perforated sleeve venting
  • Sleeve zip pocket
  • Side zipper waist adjust
  • Zip close cuffs
  • Satin poly lining with custom RSD repeat “numbers” heat emboss
  • Soft lined electronics security pocket

Review for Smaller Guys
I recently purchased the RSD Ronin Jacket in Black. I couldn't decide between the Tobacco or Black but decided to go with the Black and am happy I did. The quality of the jacket is very nice.

I didn't see a lot of reviews for smaller guys and wanted to share my experience. I'm 5'8" 130lbs, 36" chest and have a slim athletic build. I have a Dainese Racing jacket and Rev'it jacket and wear a size 46 euro in those brands. I initially thought the Ronin in small would be too big for me and that I would need an extra small (which doesn't exist).

The shoulders and chest area fit great but I found the midsection to be just a little large (wide). It does leave room for armour and layering which is great for me because I plan to use this as a Spring / Fall jacket. Unlike my Dainese and Rev'it jackets which are sport jackets this is meant to be a more relaxed fit jacket for on and off the bike and I knew it wouldn't be as fitted as my others. Also, the length is perfect for me and the jacket falls right below and covers my belt.

Based on other reviews I ordered D3O shoulder, elbow and back armour. For the back armour I ordered the women's size and it fit into the small Ronin jacket without any trimming. It's just a little wide but fits in no problem. The D3O shoulder and elbow armour fit perfectly in the armour pockets. Before putting in the elbow armour I thought the arms were also a bit loose but once fitted with the armour and a sweater it fits just right. I would definitely recommend this armour upgrade and with the armour in, you can barely even notice it's in the jacket.

Another feature I really like about the jacket is all the pockets especially the large cargo pockets on the inside. The snap back collar and perforated leather touches are awesome too.

The downside of this jacket is the price and that it doesn't come with armour. The jacket was 620 plus another $65 for the armour. Although the small fits well it would have been nice to have an option for extra small. I wish more manufacturers would make stuff for smaller guys, I always notice that you can buy things xxxl but it's so hard to find any x-small gear.

Finally, the smell of the jacket is so nice, you can tell you have a quality product! Jacket was quite stiff when I got it but has since broken in a bit and I'm looking forward to riding for many years in the Ronin!

6 months later...
I've owned this jacket now for 6 months, having ridden 5,000 miles through all kinds of weather here in Seattle. This is my first bike and this my first bike jacket so I didn't have any experience with gear before hand so please keep that in mind. A few points:

1/ If you're not sure which color to get THEN GET THE BLACK ONE. I bought the brown, and, though I will never sell it, I realized soon enough that I'm a black leather jacket guy. Interpret that how ever you wish. Regardless, pretty jacket. You will not look like a squid if you wear this on a Saturday night. This jacket is classy and people line up to complement it.

2/ This jacket will not keep you dry, and road spray pushes the tanning chemicals out of the leather leaving an off-white crust that must be wiped off. Is this normal?

3/ As long as it's dry, add a hoodie and you'll be fine down to 40*F. I do this regularly at highway speeds with no discomfort.

4/ Remember to buy the pads.

5/ I gave this jacket 3 stars because at this price point you should be comparing this jacket to a Dainese or the equivalent. Perhaps that's harsh but I'm trying to make a point: Everybody gives this jacket 5 stars simply because it's beautiful. But bikes are inherently dangerous and car drivers often distracted. It's far prettier then any Schott or Vanson but not built to their safety level. Put another way, as someone who really likes to ride fast and can do 400 - 500 miles a week I just don't think this jacket would pull it's $620 weight if I ever hit the pavement.

But is she sexy? O my yes. I don't mean to discourage anyone but, rather, am trying to be responsible and guide any other new riders out there. The decision is ultimately yours and I do ride in this jacket regularly.

Other then that Revzilla will always be getting my motorcycle money.

Very stylish, but not worth the money
I bought this jacket intending it for daily wear and loving the look of it. Once I received it and wore it around the house a bit, I immediately noticed the stitching on the collar coming loose, with the leather underneath only held together with what looked like weak adhesive. For a $600+ piece of gear, this is absolutely unacceptable. Stitching along the cuffs and back were also poor.

The jacket also comes without armor, so that's another $90 on top of that. The armor itself, while CE rated, still felt like the bare minimum they could do to get it through the inspection process. I wouldn't trust this jacket in a crash, and for the high price, why bother? A normal leather jacket will do just as well if you only want to look cool.

Venting in the jacket was actually more than adequate, the arms of the jacket are heavily perforated and after borrowing a friend of mine's jacket to try it on the road, actually found myself getting cold while riding at night. I live in southern California and am a very warm blooded person, so this was... surprising. There's not a way to zip these closed, so I would not recommend this if you live in a colder climate. The ventilation might make for decent summer gear, although there is much better equipment at lower prices designed specifically for that.

Overall, this is absolutely not worth your money. I don't know why anyone would honestly keep this, aside from the style aspect. I didn't even know my friend owned this same jacket until I brought up my concerns over it, he regrets buying it from a company without a good return policy. I don't think I'll be purchasing any Roland Sands gear in the future, the shoddy workmanship of this jacket was insulting. What a huge overall disappointment.

A stylish casual jacket. A terrible motorcycle Jacket.
Seriously do your research on this jacket before you purchase for riding. It's a very stylish piece but it seems like safety was hardly a concern in it's design. The panels on the elbows started to split with minimal use; and guess what's under those panels..just a liner aka your bare skin. Not okay at all. And that's not the only issue. The lack of coverage on the Forcefield armor you buy separately is scary for larger riders. I'm 6'3. 220lbs.

If your going to spend over $500 on a stylish jacket to ride in I suggest getting a Dianese/ Rev-it.

Roland Sands is on of the best when it come to style and cool pockets but his Jackets seriously lack in the safety department; which should be your first concern with a motorcycle jacket. I own four Roland Sands Jackets and I really can't recommend any of them for riding except: The Clash & The Rocker. The rest of them are stitched together in a way that is seriously lacking in the event that you actual go down. Weak seams don't belong on high-impact areas. Again please do your research. At this price point safety should have been more of a concern.

However, if you just enjoy looking cool off the bike look no further. The Ronin is gorgeous and has inspired many knock-offs; which are safer ironically.

Looks Great, Definitely not all weather
I love this Jacket!
I bought this jacket (tobacco) basically as a nice jacket to take on trips, with the option of putting in the armor and renting a bike. I am 6'1" 215 42" chest 35" belly at the navel. I bought a large. The fit is a bit snug, specifically under the arms, but it's not any snugger with the armor in. I like it a bit snug as a riding jacket so that it doesn't blow around and the armor doesn't shift.
I rode this jacket for 7 days in Ireland on a 1200GS in may. It is definitely not made for cold weather or rain haha. I was expecting some light rain since it is Ireland, but I was not expecting downpours and hail.
In 7 days in Ireland I experienced rain, hail, wind, and sun so I put the jacket through a good test.
Temps ran between 40-70. In moderate temps50-60 and dry the jacket was warm and provided good wind protection and I wore a short sleeve compression shirt underneath.
Cold temps 40-50 dry, still good with long sleeve compression and a thin long sleeve shirt.
In light rain the jacket does well at keeping you dry and warm, but with heavy rain the jacket will get soaked all the way through, but that still takes about an hour.
60-70s no problems short sleeve base layer and good ventilation. I probably wouldn't wear it much over 75-80
After the trip the jacket looked worse for wear, but I rubbed it down with some good leather treatment and now it looks even better than new.
Overall I love this Jacket! it looks great stand alone or out for a cruise. It is not made for touring, but functions well enough with the right base layers, and next time I will be taking a rain suit. I couldn't be happier with this purchase.

A classic look with modern features
I was looking for a classic leather jacket with an understated look (no bling, buckles, stripes, etc.) while providing a good amount of protection if I ever shake hands with Mr. Asphalt. After looking at less expensive jackets, I finally caved to the Ronin.

The Ronin is a European athletic fitting jacket. If you are in good shape, the Ronin will feel like it's tailor-made. When I first put it on, it felt a bit tight, but after it warmed up it felt snug, but not restrictive like a riding leather should. After a few days of riding and wearing, it has broken feels more spacious. I'm an athletic build 5' 6" 150 - 160lb, depending upon how much I am working out, and the S fits perfectly with a t-shirt and thermal shirt underneath. If I add a sweater it's a bit tight, but still not restrictive. My chest size was on the cusp of S and M, and I almost went up a size. But I am glad I didn't. I think the sizing for the Ronin is accurate for the tighter athletic fitted look. If you don't have a slim body type, then you may want to go up a size.

The armor pockets are great and accept the recommended Forcefield armor perfectly, although the elbow armor was tough to get in place. I wear the armor in all the time, both on and off the bike, and you can barely tell the elbow or shoulder pads are there. The back pad shows a little bit as a slightly raised outline.

The quality of the leather and construction is superb. I went with the black and I was not disappointed. It's a dynamic black with a lot of depth and texture on account of the dyeing process. My only complaint is some of the perf'd leather venting that makes up the underpart of the sleeves seems a little thin and it looks like the die used to cut the perfs wasn't very sharp as there are a lot of hanging chads of leather in the perf holes. I just hope that part of the jacket holds up to wear.

Overall, this is an expensive jacket, but you are getting a superbly crafted vintage jacket with modern features. A hard to find combo in this category of jacket.

An impartial amateur's opinion
I have read of few of these but never written one so please forgive me if I leave anything out. Feel free to ask me any questions if there is a way to do so. I have been riding for a couple of years but this past spring I made my first investment in a serious jacket. I had a long West Coast circuit planned this summer and I wanted to be safe and look good.
Let me be blunt and say that this jacket was not cheap and the RSD armor seemed a necessary addition for non-bulky protection. So the high score I gave on "Bang for the Buck" tells you a lot about my opinion of this jacket. It was best money I've spent since buying the KTM 990 adventure last summer.
In part, the reason for my excellent opinion is the "Style." I have tried a couple of highly rated textile adventure jackets and the Ronin is head and shoulders above anything I have owned or seen. The leather molds to the body in a way that textile never will and the shoulders and arms fit better than I could have hoped. The "Comfort" closely follows the style. The jacket is heavy but hangs so well that it does not feel bulky on the body and moves well on and off the bike. I am 5’ 8” and 172lbs and usually wear a 42 in a sports coat. As I mentioned it fit perfectly in the shoulders and arms but there was a little extra girth in the stomach (cut for a more typical American belly?) and I did have it taken in a bit in the middle. It is a cliché but it is true that it looks good enough, even with the armor, to wear into the bar or the restaurant at the end of the day.
Over the 6000 miles and 40 days the jacket tackled cold in Colorado, heat in Arizona and rain in British Columbia. When the jacket wasn’t on me it was strapped to the top of the roll bag and, at the end of the trip, the thick tobacco-colored leather looks better than it did at the start. Over mountains, deserts, beaches and the best curves of the coast from Mexico to Canada the salt, sands, winds and bugs bounced off, leaving nothing more than a little character in a slight lightening of the brown. “Durability” seems assured after the trip and I am excited to wear this jacket for many more. I was fortunate to never have any true tests of the protection but I felt safe at any speed due to the thickness of the leather and the consistent placement of the armor.
Why would I ever take it off you might ask? Actually, I would have preferred to always be cocooned in its comforting safety, but it is a solid and serious jacket and when the temperatures in Arizona, Mexico and California rose above 100 degrees I would change to a super thin mesh jacket that basically was a shell for the armor. So in assessing “Comfort” and “Air Flow” I gave top scores to the Ronin, because I assume that the buyer knows that its protection and durability will make it too significant for the highest heat. I loved it though, up to 90+ degrees on the bike, and the airflow can be controlled at the neck, wrists and waist at the top end of temperatures.
I also appreciated the “Features,” especially the soft satin lining and neck snap which buttons on the outside or the inside depending on comfort. The zippers are hardcore and easily used with gloves and the inner pockets allow you to hide stuff without making the jacket seem chunky. The high quality of the workmanship is a good way to conclude my rather glowing endorsement of the Roland Sands Ronin Leather Jacket. It is with great confidence that, after these past four months, I can say that I am very happy with this purchase. It will be a pleasure to put this jacket on in the years to come.

Buy quality, cry once.
I know... A fairly expensive jacket. But I assure you it's worth it. The leather is extremely thick and coupled with the armor inserts (which it doesn't come with, downgrading the features to "good" instead of "excellent") it provides great protection as well as piece of mind. It was a little stiff at first but after a few days it wore in nicely.

There's pockets everywhere. Even on the outside of the forearm sleeves. The pockets for the armor are a mesh material which the velcro (that seals the pockets) will stick to, making it slightly frustrating to put the armor in. But the armor fits nicely and stays put, flexing as needed.

HIghly recommend. I'm 6'0" 195lbs and the Large is perfectly sized, but if you're going to gain weight or layer up, go a size up. I'm about as big as the Large will fit comfortably.

Stylish and very well-made
Size & fit:
I'm 6 feet tall and weigh 200 pounds. I wear a 42-long suit and have a 34" waist. The large size of this jacket fits me fine. It's not too tight in the shoulders, the arms are plenty long and it fits great through the chest and waist. It's definitely a trim, sporty fit and won't work with much bulk underneath. I haven't used (and don't own) the armor so I can't speak to how adding that may effect the fit. The length is a smidge short, but, as expected, this is only noticeable whilst riding and has plenty to do with me being somewhat long in the waist. It's no shorter than other cafe-type jackets I've seen or worn.

Style & comfort:
This is where this piece really shines. It's a great-looking jacket that can be dressed up or down and is perfectly suited for a leisurely ride and then a nice dinner/drinks. Its very well ventilated, almost to the point of being too brisk for that after-sunset ride home. The leather and stitch work is extremely high quality. The tobacco brown has a terrific patina and odor. There's plenty of pocket space (a big plus since my previous daily-wear jacket had only a Napoleon pocket) and the liner's quite nice too.

Summary: I'm completely satisfied with this jacket. I'm looking forward to years of use.

Stay protected and look &%$*ing cool while doing it.
I'm 5'-11" and about 170lbs. I bought the medium, and concur with the other reviews that it fits like a glove. I might have liked it to be a bit roomier but not enough to warrant a larger size (probably would have been too much). The jacket is already soft and feels slighlty broken-in, but I am sure it will go further and be absolutely perfect.

Style-wise this jacket is 2nd to none. It was exaclty what I wanted: vintage cool. I bought the Smoke color and it is awesome. Revzilla's photo of the back of the jacket is really close to the actual color (the front view photo makes it look a shade darker). This may not help some since the smoke color is discontinued now, sucks. Quality is Top-Notch.

The price may be a bit high compared to other jackets with a bit more features. Personally I wasn't looking to spend as much, but as I looked and looked, I wasn't seeing jackets I liked as much until I was in this price range anyway. For the price, I think the shoulder and elbow armor should have been included.

Definitely not a track jacket, but great for regular riding, and if you want to wear it when you're not on your bike, hey, I wont judge.

Have not purchased any additional amor. For longer trips, or more aggressive riding, I wear a different jacket. This thing oozes style and can be worn on or off the bike.

I'm 5'10" 175lbs with a 40.5" chest, so I'm in between medium and large. Should I go with the large?
David M on Apr 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have a 40" chest but am lighter and shorter and think the medium fits perfect. In your case I'd be more confident ordering a large, unless you have really narrow shoulders.
I recently purchased the Ronin in medium after reading the reviews and previous questions. I love the jacket but I find that contrary to opinion, it seems to be quite a bit generous for a medium. I'm 5'11, 150lb with a 30" waist and 39" chest. I like things a lot more snug and the medium is a bit too baggy for my taste (i can easily wear a thick hoodie underneath as well as armor). I was looking for an opinion on anyone who has purchased the small, and how much of a size difference there is between the medium and small?. I live in Canada so unfortunatly I cannot easily try the small one on and return it if needed. I just don't want to purchase another jacket, wait for shipping, and find that I can't even fit in it haha.
A shopper on Aug 25, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Hey, I just received my size small Ronin in 2tone-Red and was in the same predicament being a fella Canadian. I'm 5'10, 158lbs, 31" waist and 38" chest. I prefer wearing slim fitted clothing (think Zara-M/L and Levi's 511's-31x32)

The sleeves are not baggy (without armour), the armpits are cut high just as I like it and the cuffs end at my wrist area. My jacket fitment are as follows:

Without any armour + t-shirt + waist zipper in OPEN position = perfect in chest / perfect in waist.
Without any armour + t-shirt + waist zipper in CLOSE position = perfect in chest / about perfect in waist
WITH all armour + t-shirt + waist zipper in OPEN position = about perfect in chest / perfect in waist

Without any armour + thick hoody + waist zipper in OPEN position = Ok in chest and snug in waist
WITH all armour + thick hoody + waist zipper in OPEN position = uncomfortably tight in chest / lay-off-the-timbits-tight at the waist

So.. what size? It all depends on many factors:
Majority of Use; off or on bike - If off, get SMALL (unless you prefer 24/7 baggy et al.)
Cold Tolerance - If warm blooded, get MEDIUM (sweaty is tolerable but freezing mentally paralyzes ability to ride safely)
Hoodie Materials - If hoodie is of high tech, thin and lightweight get SMALL (check out the selection at MEC, pricey but so was the Ronin)

Note: I just got mine and has yet to "break-in", any snuginess now should disappear.

With that being said, your comment of being "a bit too baggy", considerations of our fitment / body measurements and most importantly because the number one reason for buying our Ronins are for it's sexiness, our priority is based on looks.

I think you would be happier with the small. Hope this helps.
Hey guys, I am almost 6'4" and quite slim at 190lbs. I am concerned about the sizing of the jacket, mainly getting the correct length in the sleeves while still keeping a slim fit. What would you recommend? Also if I was to grab an XL to ensure enough length, could I then take it to a tailor to have the rest of the jacket slimmed down, or would this weaken the seams? Thanks
A shopper on Sep 10, 2013
BEST ANSWER: All jackets are different. as far as leather goes you could definitely get it tailored. I understand your concern for length as I too am 6'4". As a rule of thumb for jackets I usually order a size bigger then my shirt size (XL) so I start by ordering a XXL as revzilla offers One Free exchange per order. Being tall, be more concerned with arm length then body. as a motorcycle jacket should be short and sit right at your belt line.
Can anyone compare the sizing of the Ronin to the Scorpion 1909? I fit well in a medium, would the same size work or does it run bigger/smaller?
S C on Mar 1, 2016
The ring on the back of the jacket attached to the yoke, what is that used for?
A shopper on Aug 16, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Since it's hard to imagine Roland thinking that we would hang up a $600 jacket by this grommet, really, one has to see this as a design element, more then anything else.

The Ring creates a point of visual focus on the back of the jacket, echoing the lines of the leather back panels and doing exactly what happened in your case; drawing ones attention inward to the rider wearing the jacket.

Personally, I see no practical purpose. Imagine the jacket without it. Then with it. Which do you prefer?
Hello. Is the RSD Tracker jacket sized the same as the RSD Ronin? I own the Tracker but intend on buying the Ronin in a few days, just need to get sizing right. I don't want the jacket to be too bulky.
A shopper on Mar 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I recommend to size up. I have the Ronin in Gray and Brown. I love these jackets but definitely go one size up from whatever you would "normally" wear. Keep in mind I workout and have an athletic build. Im 6'0" 210 lbs, with very broad shoulders, and big arms. With that said the sleeve length was a little long, however I like having the extra reach while I ride.
Has anyone done any medium-long distance road touring with this jacket? Say 12 days, 250 miles per day.
Thanks.
Gustavo O on Jul 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Gustavo,

I have not made any rides this long. I can tell you that I am very happy with this jacket. Considering there weight of the leather and the amount of protection it gives you with armor installed, it is remarkably comfortable. The ventilation is good and i Have found it comfortable up to about 75 degrees. Hope this helps. By the way it has been my experience that the sizes run small
Howdy, where is the Ronin SD jacket made? Please don't tell me China...
Thanks, chris
Christopher G on Sep 25, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I believe they're made in India.
I/m 5' 9' tall, 180lbs., 41" chest. Wondering if a Medium or Large will fit better with the armor??
A shopper on Mar 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm 5' 11" 180 with a 41" chest and I'm quite content with the L with armor. I've tried on the medium and it would work, but it's a bit snug, even without the armor.
Looking to get this jacket for my husband who is 6'1" and 165 lbs. I am concerned about the length of the jacket itself. Would this be long enough to go past the top of the waist band of jeans (not old man jeans, but not sagging either)?
A shopper on Nov 19, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I can't necessarily answer yes or no, but details on my sizing might help. I am 6'3", 205lbs. My inseam on jeans is always 34". I bought an XL and it fits perfectly. It's bit on the snug side which I think is appropriate for a motorcycle jacket, but not so tight that I can't wear it as a casual jacket. And I still think there is enough room if I decided to put armor in it. I keep the side zips closed and girth is about right for me like that. Length in front comes down a couple inches below my belt (wearing regular rise jeans). It's certainly cut longer in the torso than a Dainese jacket I have (which is a much sportier cut). Quality is solid and it's good looking jacket. I would imagine that too much girth rather than not enough length will be the sizing issue for a tall lean guy.
