totally amazed

This is my third riding jacket and it's the best by far in design and quality. The fit is also second to none. I'm an athletic build 5-9" 145, with broad shoulders and it seems to fit perfectly, the waist area is probably the only area that has a slight excess. The racing hump makes riding comfortable as well. I slid in the jacket and didn't feel anything with just minor scuff on the side of the leather almost unnoticeable. The only thing that may peeve some is just below the collar is a velcro flap. All in all, totally amazed with the style, fit and comfort of this item.

RC-1 Blue LEATHER jacket

The product was great it fits nice a snug with room to breathe it feels very safe when you first put it on because of all the padding it has. Definitely worth the money very safe!

RC-1

love this jacket beautiful fit 5'11'' athletic (140) and surprisingly it fits snug except the waist but for some one who is lanky and has wide shoulders as well as long arms the fit couldn't be better not to mention the hump has a perforated top so it shoots a cool breeze down your back with the insulated vest removed.

RC-1 Jacket Review

Jacket is very nice, first time I put it on I just felt extremely secure, but weird. But once I rode on my bike the feel was great! The jacket is contoured to fit you comfortably while you’re riding. Also the insignias on the jacket are cool.

Rc 1 leather jacket

Got a size 54 euro. I'm a 44 us. 5'8 175 lbs. Fit is spot on. Highest quality leather you can expect from astars. Only wear alpinestars. Quality is second 2 none. Very heavy leather but extremely cool. Lots of vents and air flow is awesome. Wish the price was cheaper, but you get what you pay for. Motorcycle super store is fantastic for 3 day shipping! cuddo's to them..

Awesome jacket!

Just picked one of these jackets up and it was definitely a good choice. I'm 6'-0”, 180lbs, muscular build and went with a black size 54 Euro (44 US) and the fit is spot on. The fit is great, especially once you get on the bike, which is what the jacket is more designed for. As with all leathers, it takes a few long rides to wear it in, after which the jacket loosens up a bit, so don't decide on a larger size if it's tight and somewhat constricting when you first try it on. Amazing protection and very high quality leather. Before purchasing, I was concerned the leather and heaviness of the jacket would be too hot in anything above 70 degrees, but it vents extremely well even in 80+ weather (never gets too warm here in Seattle). I also questioned the race hump, but it simply adds to the already aggressive look of the jacket and definitely does not interfere with wearing a backpack as some reviews suggest. This was definitely worth the money, especially with the awesome service by Motorcycle Superstore!

RC-1 Jacket

I have had this jacket for about a month, and it is now starting to break in. This jacket seems to be meant to fit snug - maybe because of the extra armor and ventilation features, it is more confining than the Astars Stage jacket I own in the same size. I am kind of in-between sizes, 6'1" 200ish with decent sized upper body and biceps. I ordered a size that seemed too small, but the size up felt too big with too long of sleeves, so I went back to the smaller one, and believe it was the right choice. I was able to do an exchange without hassle thanks to the excellent policies here. It will take some more breaking in to really feel perfect, but I have no doubt it will be fine. The jacket is built beautifully and looks excellent. The jacket is also quite heavy, warm even without the liner. To sum up, the fit takes some getting used to for someone not used to a jacket of this caliber - but it will work in. It is well made and seems indestructible, but carries a price. If you can justify the expense, go for it, you will be pleased.

Awesome

This is a awesome jacket! My size, 6’1 @ 225 wearing a size 48 US suit. I originally ordered the 58 EURO. I had to return the 58 EURO in exchange for the largest size they have (for a color jacket), a size 60 EURO. Black has larger sizes available. Initially this jacket was very tight in the bicep area. The 60 fits a little better however the sleeves are a bit longer which does not work so well with my S-1 gloves. The GP gloves would work best with this jacket allowing the gloves to go over the jacket sleeves. I also purchased the optional/additional front and back armor which also influenced my upsizing. The 60 was still a bit tight in the arms however after several rides I can tell that the fit is becoming more and more relaxed. DO NOT judge the fit alone by just standing in your living room, it’s not a T-shirt. This jacket feels great once you get on your sport/super bike and it encourages proper riding position. All the CE padding lines up in the right places. The ventilation is pretty good and surprisingly there is a lot of cooling through the stretch panels all the way up the arms. Currently due to sizing, I am not using the liner and I can only wear a t-shirt under the jacket. The hump in the back does not interfere with my helmet and I can wear a loaded backpack with laptop, clothes, whatever…. To do this I have to loosen the b-pack straps to get it on and off. Plenty of pockets for your phone, wallet, keys…. This jacket looks awesome with aggressive styling and the protection is exactly what I was looking for. This jacket is quality and very well built. No regrets. The only complication is that I am not the average size European man. I also have to add that the Motorcycle Superstore has a great and painless return process. I even received an email conformation that they received my returned item and my account had been credited.
