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 Note The handwarmer pocket zippers are shown unzipping from the top down. They actually unzip from the bottom up.

I ordered the Ronin because I did not want a sporty, flashy, perfect looking leather jacket like what is being sold today. It's got the modern cafe, but vintage inspired look that I was going for. The leather is soft, matte in color, and even smells wonderful. Perfect amount of pockets, nice zippers, and it performed well enough in the 90*F heat. It fits close to the body with just enough room to wear a hoody underneath (around 65*F for me). I had the jacket for only a month before my accident and my upperbody was unharmed.
The only thing I want to note is that I thought these were limited jackets, but it appears not. I've seen pictures of the early "batch" of Ronin's and each jacket was numbered with a small leather patch as seen in the photo I've included. My jacket does not have any RS limited set number.
