Got my Vandal in the mail yesterday, a note on Revzilla: Ordered on a Tuesday morning, arrived by Wednesday morning without even asking for one-day delivery. Explemary service, guys!
The jacket is very nicely packaged with its own RSD branded coat-hanger. The material reminds me of oiled cotton, and feels awesome. It's obvious that it's a design and style jacket first, and that rider safety in a get-off situation is a (very close) second. But that's to be expected with a piece like this.
Construction is top-notch all around, and the color is indeed darker than the pictures show, the video is much truer. Pleasant surprises were to be had that were not covered in the video: there is an interior zippered pocket on the left side that would be great for a phone, and the left hand pocket features a key clip, a great feature as I can never remember where my house keys are!
I wear a 40 suit jacket, but the medium feels just slightly tight across my chest. Might be I need to lose a few pounds if I'm completely honest with myself. It's definitely what I could consider an "athletic medium". On the bike, zipped up, it's quite comfortable, but I walk around with it unzipped for comfort.
Definitely love it, looks great, already have gotten compliments. Goes well with my Gringo helmet and tan leather gloves. A great option if you're looking for a stylish moto jacket that's not black. Or if you'd prefer not to have a large logo spread over your chest.

I am 5'10" and 170 and I went with the large and it fits perfectly. The color is true to the Revzilla video review. If you happened to look at the Roland Sands website, the picture they have makes the jacket appear to be a lighter color, not true! I prefer the waxed cotton to leather. I am always worried that I will ruin my leather jacket, I think I will be much more comfortable with the Vandal.

Smells like waxed cotton..
I'm 5'10, 175 lbs with a slim-average build, and normally wear a medium or size 38. I ordered the Vandal in a medium and the fit is "perfect", if not a tad small. There is plenty of room for elbow armor and a enough room for back armor, but the shoulders are already a bit too snug. Wearing this over a thin shirt would be best, and ordering a size up may throw the proportions off.
It's waxed cotton, so you should not compare it to leather or mesh in terms of durability, adding armor is a a definite must.
On the other hand, the entire jacket breathes and there is no inner liner so I would feel that it's suitable to moderately cooler to warmer temperatures. An excellent jacket for the 'in-between' seasons.
Other than that, it looks great.

A shopper asked:I live in Las Vegas and I am wondering if this jacket would be good for summer or any other RSD jacket. I currently have the Ronin jacket and I wanted to know if the fit is about the same?Apr 23, 2013
boomgoesthe2into1:Having lived in Vegas for a few years ( I moved back to LA now ), I would say that the jacket may not work too well in the heat, compared to a mesh jacket anyway. The jacket is breathable but there are no venting slits. I would say that It's definitely more suited to spring/fall jacket since the jacket lacks insulation. Your mileage may vary.
Size wise, I usually wear a Medium (38-40) and this jacket seems to fit a bit more snug than the rest of the jackets I own, but otherwise proportionally perfect for me with a little room for armor.Apr 25, 2013
