Scorpion 1909 Leather Jacket This is a super cool Jacket. Great vintage style. The armor is also a great addition to this jacket. fit is true to the sizing chart. September 24, 2015
nice jacket but a little over distressed I like this jacket but was a little disappointed with the distressing that was done to it. It doesn't really show in the video or the pictures but the distressing is a little overdone. I know it is done in a controlled way but think maybe they should offer a waxed leather version without the distressing. Normally, I stay away from pre-aged clothing but this looked cool in the pictures and video so I bought it. I don't want to look like a storm trooper wanabe racer or a biker while riding so the overall style of the jacket suits me. It may grow on me as it ages for real but I may end up re-dieing it or oiling it to get rid of some of the distressing. I really like the armor in the jacket and I also got the back protector which I also like. I was also dissapointed to see that the jacket is made in China. Too bad. I would have been willing to pay a little more if it was made in the US. I can't imagine they are really saving that much money getting them made in China. September 23, 2015
Well made and great styling This is a well made and heavy duty made jacket that would offer some solid protection in a spill. September 21, 2015
Very cool, comfortable jacket I received this jacket about 3 months ago. Ever since I received it, I can't stop looking at it. It is badass, and the pics do not do it justice at all. The leather itself is very thick. The armor is comfortable and doesn't hinder movement in any way. Plenty of pockets for storing multiple items. My only nitpick about it would be the zipper for the liner... a little cheap. All of the other zippers are heavy duty and will give years of service I am sure. August 3, 2015
Solid jacket choice Bought this jacket mostly for the looks. I've been riding with it now for a few months and decided to share my thoughts. Negatives first: the armor in the jacket is incredibly stiff when cold. I received the jacket in the late winter and upon trying it on was sure I'd have to return it because the armor was so stiff. Turns out the armor softens and conforms to your body as it gets warmer. Body heat is sufficient to soften the armor. Second negative is one of the liner retaining buttons ripped off the jacket the first time I removed the liner. This isn't a huge deal as I'd rather throw on extra layers of clothes vs using the liner anyway but it does speak to the quality. Best part of this jacket is the looks. I get constant compliments on how good the jacket looks to point people recommend I wear it casually even if not riding. That level of style and construction quality combined with the price makes the jacket an absolute steal. June 22, 2015
Beautiful piece on and off the bike There is not much more to say about jacket other than it's one of the best jackets I've ever owned. The leather is nice, thick, heavy, but supple enough to not restrict any of your movements on or off the bike, and if you are off the bike, you'll have a hard time noticing the armor; if anything you'll notice the elbow pads if you bend your arm and the SAS Tec needs to take a few seconds to form into place. The SAS Tec is by far my favorite "liquid" armor, super soft, super breathable but I'm not interested in finding out if it works or not..I'll trust that the Germans have manufactured it properly and that's good enough for me. I haven't purchased the back protector yet, but plenty of other people have reviewed it. You don't really need to take the armor out if you're going to wear the jacket as a style piece, you can if you find the jacket to heavy, but again it's really tough to notice the armor. The worn in look is amazing, the jacket doesn't look that black to me, I felt like it was a darker grey or charcoal color, and the brown accents really pop. It'll look and feel like a jacket that's been passed down from your grandpa, no break in necessary. Perforation in the inner arms and under the armpits is great for airflow, open the rear vents up and even on 90+ days you're sitting cool at the lights. On slightly colder days the thermal vest is great, and if you need a little bit more warmth just pop on a long sleeve flannel or thermal and worry no more. Have not tried it out in the rain, and as long as I can help it I probably never will. Plenty of pockets on this thing for everything you'd need to carry, and they're deep pockets too, fits a 6+ in the hand pockets with no problem, I would like to mention that the liner of the pockets MIGHT be the only thing that leaves you wanting a bit more quality, but that's just based on the tactile feel of the material compared to how amazing everything else is on the jacket. Overall, this is a great jacket, I would recommend it for any style of rider. I've worn it every day since I've purchased it and I get compliments on it daily. Expensive but worth every bills are always going to be more than your safety gear, just sayin... June 21, 2015
My first riding jacket... ...and what an awesome way to start off! Ok, truth time - I rode around with a fashion jacket for the first few months I started riding, and as soon as I could afford a nice jacket, this one caught my eye. The more and more I checked it out, the more I saw myself in this jacket, not just for its style, but for the protection leather offers, and the sweet SAS-TEC armor. Riding confidence shot up just for graduating to an actual riding jacket, which is a huge plus. I had to mark down comfort a little because Scorpion has an opportunity to make this a 4-weather (cool, not cold) jacket, and they didn't seize it. The jacket comes with a vest-style thermal liner, which could easily be a full-sleeve liner as either an option, or accessory. Riding down the mountain side in the early morning or late evening can be a little too cool with the perforated underarms of this jacket. A full-sleeve liner would prevent that perfectly. But hold your Harleys, though - so far, even in nearly 90ºF weather, riding across the desert with the liner out and the back vents open, this thing breathes like a beast. It's NICE. I commute 50 miles a day, and this thing truly exceeds my expectations. This was definetly a great purchase, though there is a little disappointment that it does not include the SAS-TEC back armor at this price point. June 16, 2015
Perfect in just about every way The 1909 is a fantastic jacket. The video review does not show how great the leather really is, soft and perfectly distressed but with modern safety features. I upgraded to the Sas-Tec back armor and I'm loving the jacket. Once the Sas-Tec armor warms up, it "molds" to your back, shoulders and elblows and you don't get the stiff feeling from traditional armor. Two considerations, this is probably not a jacket for a Southern California summer and Scorpion has made other jackets with the option for a chest protector, I wish this one had that option as well. All things considered, I love the jacket! June 8, 2015

T O: It was time for me to finally upgrade from the fashion jacket I had been using, so after days of comparing, contrasting, and watching the ZLA videos, the vintage styling, perforated underarms, and armored back, shoulders and elbows finally convinced me to go with this jacket. After only a few hundred miles, I can certainly tell you this jacket rocks! Jun 10, 2015
Alexander Z: A jacket that's dual use, can be worn when not biking, and does not make me look strange when going into a store, is what I want. I ordered Small, my chest is 37 inch, and it fits perfectly. Love it. May 21, 2015

Christopher A: Hey Robert!
I bought this jacket not too long ago, it's amazing! The armour in the shoulders and elbows is not removable. However there is a zippered back slot that you can insert back armour if you want to. The armour is really good, top quality.

Brandon C asked: Having a hard time deciding if this would be a good look for my style of bike. I ride the 2014 brutale 675, a naked sport bike. In your opinion would this be a good match, or should I go with something more sporty? Sep 16, 2015

Derek M: It's a badass jacket and imho would look good on either a cruiser or sportbike, but ultimately it's all a matter of personal preference. If you like the style and are in the market for a leather jacket you can't go wrong with this one. It's not too loud off the bike either, meaning you can wear it into the local bar and not stand out like your some kind of super-biker or something. If you want something sportier AND leather, scorpion offers a track-grade jacket with the back pad insert included for roughly the same price. Best of luck with your decision, ride safe. Sep 16, 2015

Joshua H: I ride a 2015 Harley Sportster and it goes great with my bike. For you I would go with something more aerodynamic. The jacket is big and heavy so unless you're going to be cruising I wouldn't get it. Sep 16, 2015

Daniel P: I have got nothing but compliments on this jacket. It's clean and understated and would work well with anything but the flashiest sport bikes. Sep 16, 2015

A shopper asked: I have a 38 inch chest and a 32 inch sleeve. This puts me right at the top end of the small size jacket and the low end of the medium. Which jacket would be best? Small or medium? Mar 21, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Mark B: I have a 42 Chest and found the large fit perfect. For a 38 I would recommend the medium or large. The sleaves are a bit long but the back has no gusset so you will need the extra length for full coverage of your arm and wrist. Mar 26, 2015
Reply to Mark Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
ion l: I'm 44 and I ordered XL and it fits just right. And I usually get XL on jackets and L in tshirts. So it's like a normal size jacket. If you usually wear S on jackets than order S. Mar 21, 2015

James M: I have a 40" chest and bought the medium. It is a fairly snug fit. I would say go with the medium unless you wear small size t-shirts comfortably. Mar 21, 2015

HERMAN B: I have not measured the thickness of the leather but eyeballing it it appears to be 2mm. The overall feel of the jacket is that it is substantial, tough and rugged. The jacket with all the protection pieces installed is quite hefty and I do feel protected when wearing it. Apr 30, 2015

Jason M: It's not very thick, I'm banking on the sas-tech armor in the event I go down.

But based on my mesurments, I would say 1.2 millimeters thickness at best.

Everywhere I could measure on the jacket, was double the thickness of leather, plus some liner material. And my measurments ranged from 2.3 to 2.6 milimeters. I have pictures, but can't post them here.
