Brilliant jacket well made comfortable even with back protector inside. great value for moneyRead more
Excellent jacket, really happy with it
Tried a few jackets on in the shop, all the others were quite stiff and felt restrictive, as soon as I put it on my wife said it looked a better more comfortable and better fit, I managed to pick it up while on special offer but I would have taken this one even if it wasn'tRead more
Fits well and is very comfy. Nice soft leather and well put together, bought to use with my RST trousers.Read more
Being an odd shape, even for an ectomorph, trying to get a leather jacket to fit well around a shape like a melon (without looking like a bell on legs) has always been a futile exercise. Until now, that is. This jacket is a perfect fit, made possible by the clever locations of the stretch panels. Even the built in protection doesn't affect the fit in this respect. It's comfortable, not at all movement restricting and looks the part as well. A word of caution on the fit, though. Try a few on to find one that's perfect for you. My normal jacket size is XL, but this jacket is 3XL to get a good fit. The neoprene cuffs compensate for the additional arm length if you have short arms like me, which is a big plus for this product for me. My bike is in Australia, so most of my riding is done down there. The perforated leather works like a charm to keep you cool when you're moving, and the removable liner makes the jacket much less like a sauna when stationary than many of the much more expensive competitor's products. I'm very pleased with it. A lot of jacket for the money. Well made from quality leather. Highly recommended.Read more
Big fan of RST kit generally and this is a perfect example. Very comfortable on & off the bike, Heavy gauge leather makes it feel like it would survive a bomb blast, excellent fit, 10 /10.Read more
Very sturdy and fit well also look great!Read more
Excellent quality and fit. I'm a 44 so ordered a 44 and the fit is perfect. really comfortable.Read more
I ordered a size 40 and was a bit concerned upon seeing the 'S' label inside. However, although snug it fits absolutely fine, looks good and has enough pockets for all those bits and pieces we tend to carry i.e. phone, wallet, keys, earplugs etc. I haven't worn it on the 'bike yet so can't comment on riding comfort but am fairly confident it will be absolutely fine.Read more
I ordered this jacket after wishing to have a leather riding jacket in my collection. I already owned 2 other styles of jackets. I was blown away by the price, styling, quality of look, and further impressed by reviews. Before ordering I sent an email to confirm the fit. I ordered 1 size larger (I got a 46). I have a 38" waist and approximately a 43" chest. I ordered this from Canada and couldn't believe the price, I had my doubts due to the lower price. The jacket arrived and when I tried it on it fit like a dream. I was very impressed with the quality and look of the jacket. I would definitely buy this again.Read more

RST have used the same block with many upgraded areas, including a full length side stretch panel to the jacket, this gives more flexibility and helps with the fit of the jacket. RST have also added panel-in-panel ventilation for improved seam strength and inspired by their racing leathers they have built in TPU shoulder sliders to aid with collarbone protection. This truly is a perfect all-rounder if you are after a good looking leather jacket for summer.

It's no wonder that the RST motorcycle clothing range is now one of the most popular ranges of bike kit in the UK. Their continued investment in racing, with a particular focus on BSB, has meant a constant development of product, which has translated directly to their road range. With the help of some of the biggest names in the BSB paddock, such as Tommy Hill, John Kirkham and Stuart Easton, RST have pushed the boundaries of what can be delivered through a brand that remains amazingly good value for money.
It also helps that the Derbyshire based design team are passionate about what they do; rigorously testing all RST clothing themselves. The team insist on riding all year round, despite the British weather, in order to put the RST textile range through its paces, and the fact that the team are keen track day enthusiasts, provides helpful real world testing of the RST leather range too. Their continued passion for design and innovation is highly apparent in this year's range and when you add to the mix the constant stream of positive feedback from our customers, it's easy to see why we have always covered the entire range of RST motorcycle clothing, and will continue to do so.
Questions and Answers
do all rst trousers and jackets zip together i.e can you mix and match a 2 piece suite? thanks, Kevin.September 26, 2018
RST do use the same connecting zips across all their range.
hi im looking at the a RST Blade 2 Leather Jacket but i dont under stand the sizes. if i was to get a 54 what would the chest size be.September 12, 2017
The number in the drop down menu is UK chest size in inches. Most people find going up one size from their actual measurement works well.
I'm a 40 inch chest, is it better to buy a size or two sizes up with this jacket- have wide shoulders- I have an ARMR 42 inch textile summer short jacket which is very snug and my 42 inch winter textile jacket is a little more roomier. Never had leather previously....advice welcomeMarch 15, 2017
I would recommend the 42" jacket if you are a 40" chest.
Are the sizes for this jacket in euro or uk? Because if you have UK 56 available I will order one asap!February 6, 2017
The sizes which can be selected from the 'please select size' drop down menu are UK sizes.
