Roland Sands Enzo Jacket
I only received the jacket today so will update in the future. Initial impression is WOW! Very well put together with high quality leather and hardware. It is a real looker! Much better looking in your hands than on the computer. I ordered a large and I am 6'2" 195lbs 43" chest and a 34" waist. It has a very European fit (snug). Arm articulation is cramped when raising your arm up to shoulder height but seems sufficient for riding. After putting a full complement of armor in the jacket I did not notice much change in the fit so will keep this jacket and break it in. There is no room for any winter layering, other than silk, so this will likely be a 3 season jacket for me.

So this jacket feels like it's made from Godzilla hide. VERY THICK. Feels expensive. Smells expensive. Is expensive! There's no hiding this jacket's true nature, it's purpose. Everything about it screams style and protection with almost no consideration to anything else. It's heavy. It feels likes a cardboard box the first time you put it on. Makes you wanna roll on the ground to break it in. I've had mine for about two weeks and already it's changing color by picking up dirt and muck. Makes it look cool. Like some heirloom jacket your long lost cafe racing grandfather left you in the attic. I went to a boutique store to try it on before I bought it so I wore all the RSD jackets. This one is the heavier one. It's also the one with most extreme styling. When I first saw it on the site I was unsure about it to be honest. It seemed sorta lame compared to the Ronin and other jackets but in real life, I'M TELLING YOU IT'S AWESOME. Without the armor it fits great a little loose but you don't really notice cause the fit makes the jackets weight fall on the tops of your shoulders. With the armor IT FEELS GOOD. The weight gets distributed to the sides of your shoulders too and it feels like some sort of ancient but somehow futuristic exoskeleton. Ok suffice to say that if you are considering Roland Sands jackets you can't go wrong. They are more expensive than other jackets especially when you consider that you have to buy the armor separate. But if you have trouble deciding between two RSD jackets you can always move the armor from one jacket to the other. It's easy. So get the one that's right for the season now and buy the other in the fall. Then buy another for the winter and so on. I can't wait for the Summer cause I'm getting a Waxed cotton RSD jacket. Cause those look way cool.

Great leather jacket.
This is my first leather jacket and I love it. Revzilla does a great job with the sizing chart. The only chance I took was with the color. Sometimes it's hard to judge on a computer screen. But the brown is perfect. The quilted part on the shoulders give it a slight vintage style which I love and the big pockets inside are the best feature so far. I've only been riding with it on in the winter time so far since I got it and have been wearing a sweater underneath. I can't wait to wear it throughout the rest of the year though.

Great jacket, looks great too.
Fits great and seems very durable.
When inserting the pads, it didn't feel different or too tight.
It is a great jacket.

Enzo is everything you want in a leather jacket. The leather is treated differently so it gives you a wonderful worn leather finished look. Sort of a matte brown. Such rich, heavy cowhide.
May not be protective as is, but armor slots are easily accessible.
Only gripe is that the arms a tad big around the bicep area. Its not noticeable, and from the back you can't even tell, but it only have a tapered arm look.
Im sure this will change once I put armor into the elbows.
Detailing is super nice. I love the jacket. I even wear it around casually.

When i got my jacket it looked like some one else may have tried it on and returned it to revzilla but not enough to bother me. The fit is excellent although with elbow armor in it rides low when off of the bike but when in the ridding position it seems ok. I would recommend this Jacket to anyone

I've been looking at this and the RSD Ronin for 6 months. I purchased the Maven in Oxblood for my wife and it is beautiful. I wanted something different from the Maven so the Enzo was a logical choice. The Enzo has a flatter finish as the Maven/Ronin has a brighter sheen to it. The Enzo in brown is beautiful. You can see the quilting, tailoring and details better in the brown than the darker coal color. The fit is right although it is quite snug on the initial use. The leather loosens up after just a half hour so I expect it to feel better and better over time and use. This is a great jacket, good protection, nice on the bike and great in social settings. You can't go wrong with any of the RSD jackets.

Roland Sands NAILS it
I ride a modern classic Thruxton model from Triumph, and I wanted a Cafe inspired jacket to compliment the bike. I went with the brown color in a Large, and I am SO thankful I did....The price is worth it (go to a Fashion leather store and see how much THOSE cost...). The value is in the design and the fabrication. This jacket will definitely take the abuse of the road, and still look great for a date in the city.
This jacket is spectacular, I'm 5'11, 190 LBS, fairly broad shouldered and muscular, 42R in chest, and this jacket fits perfectly without the padding inserted, with the pads its snug, but still a perfect fit.
The only qualm i have with the Enzo versus something like Ronin is that the underarms and the sides, so its a little warm on those sunny 80+ degree days...otherwise, its awesome. Riding my Thruxton at highway speeds though, the jacket did cool down some, but I only had a T-shirt on underneath...bring cologne...
The pads are well made, and offer protection exactly where I want it, the elbow pads were a little tricky to get in, but hit right at my elbow and protect the forearm a little as well.
As most of these other reviews say this jacket is worth every penny. I love it, and I hope to be able to wear it for many, many years...a big incentive to keep myself in shape!
