Roland Sands Design Sonoma Jacket
The Roland Sands Sonoma Jacket is a fully armored performance leather jacket with modern cafe style and the heart of a road racer. The dropped-length tail, articulated sleeves with nylon stretch panels and accordion stretch panels behind the elbows and shoulders are optimized for a sport-oriented riding position. CE approved armor is standard in the arms and upgradeable in the back (CE back protector sold separately). The buffalo leather construction is both soft and highly protective, making the RSD Sonoma Leather jacket the pinnacle of style, comfort and protection.

I'm 5'8" at 172 lbs with athletic build and it fits me perfectly. It seems small but when they say it's aggressive, it is just that. Once it's on it's what I would expect in a performance jacket with a bit more sex appeal. The torso seems a tad short but so am I which means it's not a problem at all. The armor is better than I expected and the jacket has good weight. The tight but comfortable feel gives me a bit more confidence in my ride and for that I'm thankful. It feels well vented as of right now in the cooler months but we will see how the Texas summer is. In the winter I could still fit many different base layers, slim fleece, wind breaker shirts, etc. They would need to be on the lighter side due to material thickness but that's not an issue.
My scores are based on my demo unit but I would buy this jacket over and over again. I am extremely picky and after looking again and again, it turns out that this was exactly what I was looking for the whole time.
Thanks to the team at Cycle Gear for the fast shipping and quality product. I still have no idea where the so called blemish is.
