I wear this jacket all the time, not just when I'm riding. It's not a heavy jacket like other riding jackets, and it worked well too when I rode on a 102 deg day a couple of days ago. I love the large pockets, they let me leave my purse at home! Watch the sizing video carefully to know what size fits you. I'm 5'3, 160 lbs and got a Large.
This shirt feels more like a light weight jacket. It feels protective and high quality plus great looking. I bought the same size as what I normally wear and it fits great. There is still a little room if I want to wear a sweatshirt underneath. Wish I would have bought it sooner.
Ordered, received and already wore my Riveter riding shirt while riding. I have to say it felt so good to get out of my normal leather jacket and feel the breeze a bit! I don't like to take any chances with safety. I'm always wearing full protective gear when I ride, but with summer fast approaching I was dreading wearing my leather jacket in 90+ degree weather. I felt safe and confident with my Riveter Riding Shirt! I even purchased the elbow pads, and while yes you do feel them in the arm sleeve, I was never annoyed about them. 100% rather be safe than sorry! My ONLY complaint with the shirt is that I feel the sleeves are a little shorter than I'd like, literally maybe just 1/2 inch longer would be perfect! When I reach my arms out I always like my sleeves to still cover my wrists a little bit, but that's just my personal preference maybe. I think for someone petite like me, 5' 3", ordering a Large just to get the longer sleeve length would leave me feeling like the shirt is too baggy. I got the Medium :D
This shirt is so stylish and comfortable. The inside pockets are HUGE. I can fit everything I need and then some, so I'm not worried about extra storage. I pair this shirt with the Tobacco riding jeans and I feel so safe and stylish. I know it's a splurge but it is so so worth it, in my opinion! Nothing else has me feeling quite as stylish while still being protected. And if it doesn't work out, customer service is fantastic. Tobacco really is a people-oriented company and they have a customer for life!
This is a great shirt, all around fantastic! I LOVE the inside print (it literally was the feature that made me decide to get this) and the fit is great. It's a little shorter than I like, but - to be real - as I'm sitting on my bike, I don't need nor want a ton of bulk bunched up around my waist and lap, so it really is perfect. Love the arm length, lightweight (but durable) seams, great fit even with armor, and the style. For reference: I I purchased a 2XL; I'm 5'6 / Arm: 31/25 / Chest: 45 / Waist: 47 (Jacket waist 46).
I am usually a 2 or 3x in clothing and the 3x sadly like the jeans i ordered too small on me. I am 5'10 and the jacket is shorter than I would have liked and with shorter sleeves than I would like but I would be willing to compromise it if it fit otherwise as I love the style snd material. I really hope to see some extended sizing or custom options down the line!
I loved the jacket, the seams are perfect its not too heavy, while riding it doesn't get super hot- vented enough where if I stop at a red light I'm not dying. Over all its what I wanted, looks good and casual but still makes me feel a little safer if the worst happens. The ONE thing I wish it would have would be a curve for the waist for female bodies. It is straight on the sides which is fine but it would definitely be perfect if it had that curve to make it seem a little more feminine. I did follow the chart for size and its true to size. I was between the Large and XL, and went with the Large and there is enough space left.
I absolutely love this riding shirt. I was wearing a bulky, not wonderful looking and ill fitting jacket before. With my confidence gaining in riding I wanted to honestly look as good as I now felt. I gave this a try after reading other reviews about how comfortable it was. It is amazing! I love the details I wouldn't even think about, like the scoop shape in the back to cover that ass crack that might show during a sweaty ride. It feels great to finally feel wind on my ride as opposed to that heavy riding jacket that just felt like a weighted blanket. I feel confident that if/when I do go down I'll be okay. The Kevlar and elbow d30 pads put my mind at ease. You also can't even tell the armor is in the sleeves! Which adds to the great look. Im 5'8 and weight more than 190 and got an XL. It would be okay to go up and get a XXL so the sleeves would hit right before your wrist when on the handlebars and my boobs wouldn't be so squished. But I have hopes and dreams of losing weight so I'm too stubborn to exchange it.
The fit is perfect, the weight is ideal and the look is sleek on the outside. The inside is this hokey bandana print that is, in my opinion, terrible. Its only part on this shirt I really don't like. I enjoy keeping my sleeves unbuttoned because it feels more comfortable when I am not riding but I will keep this shirt nice and buttoned up always.
This shirt is exactly what i was looking for to ride in many different weather situations. I can add a layer under or over it or wear it on its own. The stitching is strong and beautifully worked, the material is not too stiff. The color works well with all my riding gear. I love this thing!
