I bought the RSD Ronin jacket in smoke as my first moto jacket and I don't ride anywhere without it. With it's old-school styling that points to cafe racer culture, its perfect pocket placement for a balance of utility and streamlined looks, the thick full-grain leather, and the armor option (a no brainer), this jacket will have you dressed for the ride as much as the slide. The cowhide used has such a unique quality to it: like it was distressed by life, not by some designer in a studio. Scratches only make it look better.
What I love:
The full-grain leather protects while the perfs allow for effective airflow. One of the inner pockets is the exact size of my iPhone. The "smoke" color looks like a cream colored jacket would after rolling in some coal - really beautiful. Fits snug with just enough room for a base layer for cooler days.
Removable armor means you can still get use from the jacket after riding season is over. Armor is pretty comfortable, considering that it's armor.
What I don't love:
The armor seems to shift around in its pockets slightly; not sure if they will "set in" over time. The sleeves are a great length for arms-forward riding, but a bit long when off the bike. Also, the zippers on the sleeves don't want to stay shut all the way.
