Roland Sands Tracker Jacket
great style slim fit
i love this jacket, the style is great and it fits close to the body. not a lot of protection or airflow, but it's a great commuter jacket and it's extremely durable and should last a long time

Great jacket, a little pricey
I picked up the RSD Ronin jacket a while back, and love it. However, with multiple bikes in different styles, I felt like I needed something else. The Tracker jacket really stuck out to me; it evokes the history of motorcycles, but still has modern features.
The jacket fits like others in the RSD lineup, which is a little on the small side. I'm 6'1", 180 lbs and normally wear medium shirts; the large is snug in a good way. It's well made, comfortable, and looks great on or off the bike. In fact, I haven't been able to ride recently, so I've been wearing it around tome without armor.
I gave it a 3 on protection, because like the rest of RSD's line, it doesn't come with armor. You can purchase armor made for it from Revzilla though, which I highly recommend. It's by no means meant for racing, but it'll help in a slow street crash. If it concerns you, you might want to order a size up and fit some D30 armor or something. It's largely a style thing, with actual protection being secondary, so if protection is your priority, you might want to look elsewhere. For riding around town though, it's good enough for me.
All in all, this is a great jacket. It looks and feels great, and it works for a motorcycle too.

Very stylish - runs small!
Very attractive and well made jacket. First quality all around, IMO. I was shocked by the sizing and that more people had not mentioned that it ran on the small side.
I wear a medium in most all jackets, tees and dress shirts. A 40 suitcoat is my size. I couldn't even get the zipper to meet on a medium. Returned for a large.
Just be careful, I think they run small, especially if you are putting armor in there. Which, by the way, seemed excellent and fit nicely.

Great Textile Type Jacket as an alternative to leather
Loving the jacket. The arm length could be 1/2" longer for me, but overall it fits well. I normally wear a medium in a tighter jacket like this, but this one fit the medium was tiny on me so I opted for large and it fits well other than the issue with the arm length.
The zippers are strong and everything is really comfortable. My only wish is that they'd make the main side pockets zipperless so that they didn't scruff your hands when you're just a stoplight.

Awesome Jacket , love the fit!
I just ordered this RSD Tracker jacket and received it in 4 days! Kudos to the Revzilla team. Jacket fits great and looks even better. Arm length is great on and off the bike. Great video demo of jacket and that put me over the line to buy from you. Great customer service and I will be a customer for a long time. Keep up the great work.

Great looking jacket
I bought this to have a simple, nicely styled jacket to beat sround the city in that doesn't look too robo-cop. The purchased armor fits discretely. No airflow...the waxed canvas doesn't vent. I'll use it for spring/fall and cooler summer evenings. I'm 6'1 210lbs and needed an XL. Still feels fitted, not loose at all. Overall a nice addition to my closet full of jackets.

I love this jacket
I've had this jacket about a week now. It has a distinct smell to it. It's not a bad smell. It took me awhile to figure out what it smelled like, but I've determined it smells like gear oil that you would put in a differential. Some people might be turned off by this, but I like it.
The styling of this jacket is it's best feature. I also bought the back, shoulder, and elbow armor.
My only disappointment with this jacket are the arms. I'm 6'4" and I bought the extra large. The sleeves are slightly shorter than I'd like, but not bad. The real problem is the circumference of the arms. I work out, but I'm not huge. The arms are just too small. If I put the elbow armor in I can barely bend my arms. Without the armor it's MUCH better, but still too small. Not so small, however, that I don't still love the jacket and plan on wearing it as much as possible.
The other good thing about this jacket is, even with the armor in it's very stylish on and off the bike. Most people probably have no idea it's a motorcycle jacket.

Exactly what you expect,High Style & Great Detail
Jacket is great looking. lots of attention to detail. no neon color, no big logo's, just an old school look riding jacket. fits true to size and I have the armor in the shoulders and elbows. 3 season jacket, will be to hot for summer. pricey but I knew that going in.
