River Road Buying Guide

By Glenn Zetterquist (Zee331)

River Road came to market many years ago with a very basic line-up of leather jackets, vests, chaps, and gloves. Over the years, the quality of the product and the breadth of the line has increased dramatically. Now, River Road is a staple brand for Harley and Metric cruiser riders alike. In fact, you may have seen American Legend Sonny Barger and his crew sporting the River Road line of products in a recent movie titled Dead in 5 Heartbeats.


While the overall line of products has not changed much from the 2012 offering, there are a couple neat techie aspects new for 2013. TouchTec allows you to use your phone while wearing gloves and the TFL Cool System drastically reduces leather jacket and pant temperatures. Learn more below:

  1. TouchTec: When your gloves are made with TouchTec enabled leathers, you can text, call, tweet, or surf any touch screen device without taking them off. TouchTec leather is all natural, quality leather that has been uniquely processed to mimic what touch screens respond to... the touch of a human hand.
  2. TFL Cool System: Select leather jackets and pants for 2013 are available with TFL Cool System technology. What is it? It’s a technology infused leather which reflects 80% of solar radiation which significantly reduces surface and internal temperatures of dark garments.

River Road Apparel and Luggage is a diverse line in 2013 with key product lines in the following categories for both men and women:

  1. Graphics Collection
