Wow. Seriously, right on the money.
I was going back and forth between this and the (also awesome) Roland Sands Ronin for a good 2 months or so. But when it came down to it, this jacket just simply offers more for less (all style preferences aside).

For one, this jacket includes (removable) elbow and shoulder Sas-tec armor. It isn't super bulky or noticeable, but for comfort's sake, I like to keep mine out, except for longer rides (mainly because I find myself wearing this jacket daily, even off the bike).

Secondly, it's over a hundred dollars cheaper than the Ronin. And after you factor in the included armor, the jackets are relatively the same (zip-out thermal liner, quality construction, same general cafe style, good venting, etc). However, I've heard some concerns re: the stitching durability on the Ronin, and I've been nothing but impressed by the overall solid feel of all the seams and materials on this jacket. Nothing about it makes me nervous at the thought of sliding down a bit of pavement with it on.

That being said- the $120 price difference would only be for the style and looks of the Ronin. And let me just say, not sure why Scorpion went with the photos they did, but this thing looks LEAPS AND BOUNDS better than the goofy promo photos they have for it online. Be sure and watch RevZilla's awesome overview video to get a better sense of color and finish on this guy. It looks and feels FANTASTIC. Heavy duty, a great broken in look and feel, all while retaining the bullet-proof build quality I mentioned.

And finally, the fit. This thing fits like a custom-tailored piece. Bear in mind, I prefer a more fitted look and feel. I bought a size M, and I am 6'0", 32 waist, 155 lbs, and I usually wear a size 38 or 40 suit jacket. But even though it's a great, snug fit, it also gives enough room to fit a normal weight hoodie underneath, making this jacket awesome from spring all the way to winter (no joke). Sizing chart was SPOT on, use it!

As if that's not enough, like I said earlier, I find myself wearing this jacket every single day, through a wide range of temperatures (on AND off the bike), because of how good it looks.

Absolutely zero complaints. The price is steep for a jacket in some respects, but without a doubt, this is right on the money, considering all the quality and features you get with it. Couldn't recommend it enough.

I look forward to aging this jacket over the years and someday passing it down to my son in a decade, should it hold up til then. (It's that freakin' cool).

Cheers guys! Ride safe.

Timeless style and protection!
I knew I wanted this jacket from the first video review I saw. I immediately went into a store to see it for myself. I fell in love at first touch, This jacket has an amazing feel to the leather, and you can tell there was a lot of time spent on the details. Keep in mind that the jacket you see online and in a store will look slightly different than the one you get due to the way they distress the leather. That is unless you are fortunate enough to find your size in the store and walk out with the one you try on.

The Jacket does fit as advertised as an "American" cut, so there is room in the gut area. Everywhere else fits true to size except the sleeves. This is the only negative about the jacket in my opinion. It seemed there was less than 1.5 inch difference between the large and small as far as sleeve length was concerned. I am 5'5" 155, athletic build, and the sleeves are about an inch too long. If I leave the sleeve un-zipped and let my arm hang, it covers my knuckles. Even in riding position they are too long.

If you have never had SAS-TEC armor before, it slowly conforms to you as it gets hot from the sun. The pockets for the armor are sized perfectly and there is no sliding around like in some other jackets I have had in the past. If you regularly travel with a clear or tinted visor to swap on your helmet, there is no inside pocket for it like some other jackets offer. Also, at this price point, it should come with a back protector.

Regardless of my sizing issue, no other jacket comes close to the look and feel of this jacket I my opinion. As long as you're not built like me, I HIGHLY recommend this jacket.

Good looking leather jacket with armor
I've only worn this jacket a few times in temperature ranges from the upper 40s to about 70 degrees, but so far, I think it's really solid. First and foremost, I was looking for a leather jacket that looked good and had built-in armor and this jacket hit the mark on both. To give you some idea of fit, I'm about 6'1", weigh around 200lbs and am in decent shape. I first ordered a large and while it fit, it was very snug. So, I ended returning it and went with the XL, which fit much better, especially when wearing another layer of clothing underneath. The armor is flexible and doesn't feel bulky at all. It's well hidden and it doesn't even appear that you've got it on.
The sleeves at the forearm are vented, which is nice when the temperature is higher, but as things cool off into the 60s, you'll want to have sleeves on or your arms will get cold. While the exterior zipper is excellent, I do question the quality of the zipper used for zip-out vest liner. So far so good, but this looks like a potential weak point in the jacket.
At the end of the day, this is an excellent jacket that provides quality armor and fantastic aesthetics that I would absolutely recommend. I searched extensively for weeks for a leather jacket that gave me the qualities I was after, and I'm happy I landed on the Scorpion 1909.

excellent buy
I'm 6' and about 180, so I bought a large. I usually need to have suit jackets tailored, since I've got fairly wide shoulders and long arms, but this fit me almost perfectly. It has good space across the shoulders and arms, though has an enormous amount of extra room for the beer gut I will undoubtedly gain now that I have a jacket to accommodate it.

I've worn it on 90 degree days and its extremely well vented. Even when sitting still at a light or in traffic I don't get too uncomfortable. I suppose anything leather/armored is going to be toasty, but the 1909 does a great job of minimizing this. And with vents closed, long sleeve undershirt, and thermal vest in you stay cozy down to temps in the 40s for quite awhile. Keep in mind, though, that the perforated sleeves still bring in a lot of air at speed and so this jacket probably won't do for long haul trips in the winters.

Plenty of easy-to-zip pockets, including a ridiculously handy one for keys/toll money on the right sleeve. And my girlfriend loves it.

My first jacket
This is my first jacket, and I wanted a leather jacket that was simple and good looking, with armor. This fits the bill.

I'm 6'1", 215lb and I wear a size 42 suit jacket. The large fits well, not too tight, but it's very fitted on me in the belly area. I wanted to see if the XL would give me a little more room to offer more venting around my body, but it was a little too large, especially in the sleeve length for me. My sleeve length on dress shirts is 33. I'm sticking with the large.

I would recommend this to others.

Excellent Jacket
Okay, after researching for months, trying on numerous jackets and purchasing and returning three jackets by other manufacturers, this is the one I have chosen as the best for me. And now, after owning it for 6 months, I feel I can give honest feedback.

For the price, this is an excellent jacket which, in the event of an accident, I feel that it will protect me quite well due to the Sas-Tec shoulder and elbow armor that is included with it.

Although the leather isn't very thick, measuring approximately 1.2 millimeters (I measured the leather folded and then divided that measurement as there was no single thickness of leather on this jacket). But that's one of the reasons that it's so comfortable to wear after being broken in.

Regarding the fit, I bought this in a large and it fits great. When purchased, I was 5'8, 195 lbs with a chest measurement of 41" and although it was snug, I could still wear a hoodie with the inner liner on underneath the jacket. Now, 6 months later, I am 5'-8, 155 lbs with a chest of 39" and it still fits fantastic. Even better now after the 40 lb weight loss. And it doesn't feel too big or baggy without the inner liner and hoodie.

I will say that this jacket does fit a size large in my opinion though as I wore a small in the Tourmaster brand and medium in Fox Creek Leather brand back when I was 195 lbs.

Now the color is stated as being black, but it's much more of a weathered grey. Which still looks awesome. And it has all the pockets I could ever need and the zippers are easy enough to use while wearing gloves.

Speaking of wearing gloves, the only drawback I can find on this jacket are, the zippers on the wrists don't stay zipped up very well. If I'm wearing thick winter gloves, this isn't a problem so much as with no gloves on, or thinner gloves, as they come unzipped almost immediately.

I've worn this jacket on a bike in the mid 30's, all zipped up with the liner, a couple layers and a hoodie and it was fine. My body was comfortable and the only place cold air got in was around the neck area. Had I worn a scarf, I would have been quite comfortable if my thumbs and toes weren't frozen.

I've also worn this jacket in the upper 90's without the liner, all the zipped up panels unzipped, with just a t-shirt on underneath and it was very comfortable. Only getting a bit warm while stopped at a light.

This is easily the best jacket I've ever owned, the workmanship is excellent even though it was manufactured in China and I'm constantly getting compliments on it.

Sorry for the lengthy review, I guess I could have just summed it up as, if you have the means, I highly suggest you purchase this jacket.

And for some reason, RevZilla still says I ride a Honda Rebel. Which I did, 4 bikes ago.

Great looking jacket, great armor
So the first thing that struck me about this jacket was definitely the look of it, which I am really happy about. I like Scorpion's stuff, but always hated how billboard-esque their branding is. So a supple leather jacket with a minimum amount of logo was a huge factor in my choosing to look at the jacket.

The armor is super flexible, and very comfortable. There is much more airflow than I expected, the perforated sleeves are great for Los Angeles riding.

The only issues I had were with figuring out a fit. On my body (5'8", 190lbs, 44in chest, 33 sleeve) I had to choose between the large and the extra large. The large fit snugly on my chest and body, but the armpits were too snug to be comfortable on a large ride, and the jacket was just snug enough overall that getting decent layers under it would be an issue. The XL was better fit on the body, with room for a layer or too under it, and the arms fit better at the chest. The downside now is the sleeves are just a bit longer than ideal, but that was a totally acceptable trade off for me for a jacket I really dug and fit well everywhere else.

So in short, I dig the jacket. A lot. The fitment is to each person, and I'm happy with that as well.

I have a small midsection...
Great Jacket, has held up well after 1.5 years of use. I ride everyday, so it has faded a bit in the Sun, turning a slightly (very light) reddish brown on the shoulders.

The zippers are still doing well, and its liner is great for fall travel, just be sure to close the vents.

It fits great in the arms, however even using the buttons on the back, it is still a bit wide on my mid section.

Overall, great jacket, looks good, and the seams are holding up well.

Awesome jacket; looks great, feels great
The minute I saw the RevZilla review for this jacket, despite the fact that it was about $200 more than I wanted to pay for a jacket, I knew I was buying it. It has a great, classic style, fits me great, and feels very comfortable. I've taken to wearing it around all the time, even when I'm not riding. It's a tough jacket, and I feel confident in the protection it provides. The Sas-tec armor molds well to my shoulders and arms. The zippers are high quality, and the pockets are very convenient.

This is definitely a warmer weather jacket. The liner helps a little, but I frequently wear it with a sweatshirt underneath in the very mild Seattle winter. It breaths well.

Overall, I regret nothing. I'd buy this jacket again for sure.

Great jacket
Everything is awesome. You can't even tell the armor is there when your riding. I was out in 77 heat yesterday only going 20-30 mph and it kept me cool.
Not something you could wear in cold weather.
It's very stylish.
I'm 6'2 and 180lbs and got a size M. It's very tight and form fitting the way I like it. The sleeves are long enough even when I'm riding.

Looking for a classy looking jacket that wasn't to aggressive looking off the bike. Plus the no logo was ultimately the key note for me. Scorpion let there product do the talking for them and didn't try to blast their name out there on it. Also it was one of the few jackets in its price range that came with protection. A+

Doesn't look like you were at the track, which is cool, just not for me. Just wanted the classic look with new aged protection.

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!

i was wondering how your tall sizes work an if you have tall sizes on this particular jacket. I'm 6'4'' 170 lb with a 38'' chest, a 31'' waist, and a 74 inch wing span. what size would fit me best?
A shopper on Jul 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I am 170, 38 R, and I don't know my wingspan but a medium did it for me. I like it more form fitting, while I wouldn't call it a slim fit, I really like the way the medium size for me.
What size SAS-TEC back protector works with this jacket?
A shopper on Aug 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I got the SC-1/12 and trimmed it to fit. It works well but when you put it on, you can see the outline of the back protector because it's 3/4inch thick.
What armor comes with the jacket in the shoulder and elbows? if it is SAS-TEC, what is the number imprinted on the armor regarding size? thanks
Lewis S on Dec 26, 2015
Is the armor in the shoulders and elbows permanent or removable?
Robert O on Feb 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Robert, I checked out the jacket last night. Actually I wasn't aware of it, but the armor on the shoulders and elbows are removable. All you need to do is undo the velcro and remove the armor.
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?
Brandon C on Sep 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
I am 6'4", and was wondering how long down the back (from nape to base) the jacket is in it's various sizes, probably L or XL?
A shopper on Sep 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm only 5'4" and I got a small and it fits perfectly. Their size chart is very accurate. The back goes just below my waist.
What is the thickness of the leather on this jacket?
Isaac S on Apr 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Has anyone worn this in the summer? How is it in 85 degree weather and up?
adam527 on Aug 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It breaths pretty well and has a removable liner so not too bad in warm weather. Like any leather though when you're not moving it gets warm. I wear mine in weather up to 85 and it's comfortable. Anything over that it can be a little uncomfortable.
I wear a 44 size jacket. I'm 200 lbs and 5'11" Can you commend a size? Oh Waist size is 36.
LeoWiz on Mar 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I"m 6'1", 185 and wear a 42 jacket normally and I have a bit of extra room. I wear a large. I would say if you wanted a slim fit get the large, if you want a little room and comfort get the XL
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?
A shopper on Mar 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
