It fits great. 70 degrees, without the liner it was very comfortable, 50 degrees with liner it kept me warm. I would buy it agin, but will not have to, I see this one lasting for years to come.

Rockford, MI

Great Jacket

Comment: Received this jacket as a birthday present and LOVED it from the first minute I put it on. Right out of the box it has a nice worn-in feeling to it. High quality leather that you can smell right away. You can't fake that smell. It keeps you nice and warm with the liner in for cold weather riding and has a lot of vents to keep you cool for warm weather riding. Highly recommend.

River Road Hoodlum Jacket Review

Comment: I'm a big guy. 220, and 5'8. I got a 46 and it fit great. It has an old broken in look and feel that usually takes a couple years to get. I have also been told by several women I work with.., it smells great.. in Practical terms, it is vented near your pits, on your chest, and both left and Rt along the back. It was 86 yesterday, and had it on and while riding, the coat was vented just fine. I was nervous about getting it online, but I am 100% happy. Well worth it.

River Road's Hoodlum jacket is one of my favorites from this brand. I really like vintage looking motorcycle apparel and this jacket is obviously just that. The Hoodlum is made of soft, matte finished buffalo leather which is perfect for a vintage looking jacket because of the large grain. The seams edges are distressed, and the white stripes have been antiqued, giving them an egg shell color.
River Road uses numbered sizing on their vintage models that corresponds to your chest size, and the fit is accurate. Billy, here, is 5'10'' 160 with a 42 inch chest. We went with a size 40 on him because the typically wears his clothes very tailored; and on the street this will work great, this jacket looks spot on, but on the bike, the jacket might bind a little in the shoulders, especially on a café style bike with clip on handlebars, or a cruiser with ape hangers, basically any handlebar setup that requires a fully extended reach.
For these types of bikes, you may also want to consider a jacket model with expandable shoulder gussets, like the MJ535, as this Hooligan model doesn't have that feature. On bikes with more relaxed seating positions, though, using your exact chest measurement to establish your jacket size will work perfectly.
Vintage style jackets are designed to be fairly form fitting, so there isn't a ton of adjustability. There is some, though. These two position snap adjusters allow you to adjust the circumference of the waist, and are helpful in manipulating airflow through the jacket.
This Hoodlum jacket can be worn throughout most of the year due to its versatile ventilation and liner setup. There are zippered vents on the chest and on the biceps for directing cool air into the jacket, and there are additional zippered vents on the back that do a good job of moving hot air out of the jacket during the warmer months.
Unfastening the main closure and Euro style collar, reveals the removable, full sleeve, quilted thermal liner that can be installed in colder weather to help to hold in that body heat.
While we're looking at the liner, you can see the Velcro pockets on either side for electronics and other small items. Removing the thermal liner, exposes the same pocket arrangement on the mesh liner on the inside of the shell. On the exterior, on the front, the vents on the chest that we just looked at double as pockets, and there are two zippered hand warmer pockets as well.
