The leather is of good quality and good weight along with comfort. The fit is good but if you are lengthy in arm length you should order accordingly. The zipper I wish was heavier duty.

All the reviews are right on, great jacket, affordable, great looking, quality jacket. Order a size larger and you have yourself a good looking well made jacket.
For the money, you can't beat River Road fit and finish. This jacket is very heavy for cooler weather riding, but with the liner out and the vents open, it appears to be a good option for warmer weather up to low 90's if you're moving.
First time customer and am very pleased. The jacket fits great! The caliber jacket is everything that I was looking for in a motorcycle jacket.Very pleased !Jafrum you have a new customer!
Originally purchased a size 50, and it was too big. Returned it and bought a 48, and it was perfect. Still can't believe the quality and features for a sub $300 leather jacket. Would highly recommend to anyone considering a cruiser style jacket with armor.
First, I couldn't believe how fast it arrived. The jacket is heavy and seems very durable, but still flexible. I took the advice of others who posted reviews and order one size larger than the sizing chart suggested. It fits perfect. Now all I need is for the weather to cool off so I can wear it.
Shopped around and place my order with this jacket. NO REGRETS! Top quality and very tough yet comfortable. I wear a jacket size 44 and I ordered a size 46. Glad I did. Fits perfect. I did take the padding out on the shoulders, elbows, and back. It fits allot better without them. To top it all, I received my jacket only two days after placing my order! The exact leather motorcycle jacket I was looking for. Love my HD Street Bob, love my new jacket!
It seems to fit well. Have not worn it because it's been to hot, so I cannot coment on over all warmeth and durability. The zippers are stiff and bind, they should be a lot better.
WOULD RECOMMEND ONE SIZE LARGER THAN THE CHART SHOWS. ALSO RECOMMEND REMOVING THE ARMOR PADS SO THE JACKET DOESN'T FEEL RESTRICTIVE. FITS WELL WITHOUT THE ARMOR, VERY COMFORTABLE, DURABLE. I FEEL IT IS A QUALITY PRODUCT.
After riding a ZX6R Ninja and a BMW R1150R Rockster, I purchased a H-D Softail Deluxe. So my next step was to purchase a Leather Jacket to match the bike. I'm extremely pleased with my decision to go with the River Road Caliber. The Jacket has the classic look, but much more. The leather is extremely thick, and still maintains a very soft feel. The zip-out liner provides great versatility for all weather. And there are plenty of pockets for cell phones, wallets, etc. I've owned many leather jackets, and this is certainly at the top of my list of favorites. I am extremely pleased with my purchase. This is a quality product.
I got this jacket as a Christmas gift and I've gotta tell ya it fits like a glove and doesn't constrict with movement unlike lots of others. Very heavy & duty good quality leather & hardware, extremely comfortable. It's good and warm with the liner in for colder use, and nice & ventilated for warmer use. A jacket of this quality usually runs about $600-$800, the armoring is very well placed & functional aswell. I am still extremely pleased with this jacket. It looks & feels great and is about as functional as it gets...all I can say is Superb Jacket Jafrum!!!
I bought this jacket for my son for Christmas. Although I got the size wrong, I did not make a mistake about the product. It appears to be well made and sturdy. It's quite heavy and I feel confident it will offer extra protection for him out on the road. My son loves the jacket and I can't wait to give him the correct sized version!

What is the Weight/Thickness of the leather for your River Road Caliber Leather Jacket?
Best Answer:Hi Tony D, I have a few different leathers, different styles also. But this one is a nice jacket, soft leather yet strong, Id say its on the heavier side. If you like this style its a good buy.
