RDS Ronin Jacket

The RSD Ronin Jacket is a stylish leather jacket, a perfect choice both for riding and off-bike wearing. Although the Roland Sands design name might suggest an extravagant brand, there are little visual markers of the manufacturers name, having the logos only on the button snaps and a patch sewed into the interior that fits the clean lines and stressed leather look of the jacket.

The Ronin definitely offers an outstanding look, and it doesn’t disappoint when it comes to performance either. It is tailored to fit a riding stance with long arms and articulated elbows, but it could use a bit more coverage for the lower-back in order to suit any riding stance. The comfort is great, the interior satin poly liner feels welcoming and the ventilation is offered by perforated panels in the underarm. On hot days, you can zip it only halfway up to increase airflow.

The jacket’s leather material is not very thick, but you can buy an 90$ CE-rated armor kit which contains a back protector and a pair of shoulder and elbow inserts that are required for use in order to assure actual protection. The armor inserts can be easily taken off making the Ronin comparable to a high-end jacket when wearing it off-bike.

There are a couple of disadvantages to the RSDRoninjacket . Firstly, this jacket is not suitable for all types of weather as it will deteriorate if you are caught by a rain and you don’t treat it with a good quality leather conditioner.The huge drawback, however, is the outrageous 620$ price tag, making it a costly choice for any rider.
