Roland Sands RSD Ronin Leather Jacket The Roland Sands Design Ronin Leather Jacket is an exercise in nostalgic design blended with modern functionality. The RSD Limited Set hand finished and waxed 0.9mm-1mm thick cowhide construction gives the Ronin a tough yet supple feel that ages as you wear it. Pre-curved arms and pockets for RSD x Forcefield armor turn the Ronin from just another leather jacket to a motorcycle jacket you can trust when things go wrong. Just like Roland's many custom bikes, the Ronin gives you everything you love about the days of yesteryear along with the convenience of modern functionality. Features Detailed caf style, with shorty snap collar and front zip pockets RSD Limited Set hand finished washed and waxed cowhide (Main body leather thickness 1.2mm) Performance riding fit, with rotated, pre-curved sleeves, dropped back length, and relaxed collar opening Perforated leather interior trims Perforated sleeve venting Sleeve zip pocket Side zipper waist adjust Zip close cuffs Satin poly lining with custom RSD repeat numbers heat emboss Soft lined electronics security pocket Stretch mesh cargo stuff pockets Zip close interior chest pocket Armor ready shoulder, elbow, and back protector pockets

I am 5'9" 164-167lbs. Athletic build. Suit size 40, waste size 32.
The jacket is beautiful however I have had trouble getting the right size. I believe I am of average height and build. I first got the medium and it fit perfect in the body; the chest and waist. But the arms are too flappy in the elbow area and much too long.
I ordered another one in small and the arms were perfect, not flappy but super tight either allowing just enough space for a thin under layer and/or elbow protection. Alas, the chest and waist were too tight, and the arm holes at the arm pits are too tight.
I love this jacket and for a good 15 minutes contemplated having it tailored in the arms on the medium but felt that it would compromise the seams too much, and deciding to return both items. If only I could mix the Medium chest/body portion with the length and snugness of the Small sleeves.
Not sure what RSD was thinking or maybe I have strange proportions.
