Roland Sands Ronin 2-Tone Leather Jacket
First of all the quality of the leather is excellent. Much thicker and heavier than other leather jackets I've had. I thought this would make the jacket too warm considering the lack of perforations in the chest. I was wrong. Roland Sands has engineered this jacket to breath very well through the underside of the arms. I really can't figure out how it works so well. I wouldn't, however, wear this jacket in weather above 80-90 °F depending on humidity. Overall the build quality is excellent and paired with the armor makes me feel well protected. It's hard to justify the price, but If you're willing to put down the money this jacket is highly recommended.

Great Café / Bobber Jacket
I love this jacket the leather feels completely different from anything else you’re used to. From the first time trying it on it feels like a broken in jacket you've had. The jacket is pretty heavy so when you get off the bike on hot day it might be kind of drag to carry around. However even on hot day while you’re on the road surprisingly enough the jacket stays cool. Kind of pricey and wish it came with removable liner but all in all great jacket.

Exactly what I wanted!
I saw this jacket as a perfect cosmetic match for my Moto Guzzi Griso, it's just a bonus that it happens to be the best jacket I have ever owned. I am around 6 foot, 210 pounds and I ordered an XL. Fits perfectly, sleeves are perfect length, and it still has that sporty, against your skin feel. The Leather is incredible and smells like the inside of a brand new Ferrari (I am guessing). I particularly like the attention to detail, like the fact that there is a tether with a metal clasp in the side pockets so you can secure things in there and leave them unzipped. 100% satisfaction from this guy, and a tip of the hat to Roland. I was also quite happy to see that it is crafted in India, and not made in China!

Ronin leather jacket
Its pricey. The jacket runs small, definitely go a size larger than what you wear but I'm not saying anything that hasn't been repeated a dozen times. With those things listed, I fn love this jacket. It looks clean... so if you have the cash available Id 100% recommend it.

as always excellent
The jacket is perfect, just as the review said, it was shipped out promptly and arrived in perfect condition, its a bit more dirty now though after a couple of off road journeys, looking forward to many years ahead with this on my back. THanks

When I bought this jacket, I immediately fell in love. The style, and comfort were fantastic. I loved the smell, and felt the leather was of quality and pretty heavy. I had the jacket for 2 weeks before I had a minor wreck at 10 mph. I took a low side fall landing legs first. My regular denim jeans were unscathed but the Ronin was destroyed. The leather stayed intact, but the seams in the left arm literally burst apart opening me up to serious road rash on the elbow. I had just ordered the armor, and had not received it before the accident and thought for the price, the armor should have been included.

A really nice jacket!
I was pleasantly surprised when I received this jacket. It was obvious to me from the moment I put my hands on it that it is very well made. The leather is thick and heavy, but soft enough to make the jacket comfortable. The inner liner is really nice and durable and has great pockets for holding your cell phone and whatever else. The zippers are heavy with a leather straps that make it easy to zip.
The jacket fits really well. I am 6'oo and 200 pounds. I bought the large and it is a perfect fit. Since this jacket is mainly for riding my Harley Street Bob I wanted it to fit like a motorcycle jacket should. Though this jacket looks so good it is now my go to whenever I go out.

Awesome product...Awesome review!
Thanks for the great review of the jacket. It made my decision easy to purchase it. Great feel and fit for an XL riding jacket. I am 6'2", 195lbs, 34" waist, 44" chest and XL is perfect. I was very disappointed with more expensive brands for fit and function (other brands were very expensive, too small, and leather was too thin). This is a medium priced jacket and is easily better than high end brands I've tried. I returned the high end ones; I'm keeping this one. Leather is a good thickness, sleeves are well designed and cut well for riding. Pockets are well placed for fit and function. Colors are right on based on review photos.
