by littleossippeguy I wrote a review back in December
Just wanted to update with a photo of the bomber jacket purchased at L.L.Bean in Dec 2013. It took about a month to wear the jacket in etc..
But, Its a great jacket, fine quality craftsmanship. I expect to have this jacket for many many years. I wear it most every single day. I get may comments on how good the jacket looks. You can still smell the leather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBEAN4MIKE GREAT FIT AND DURABLE. BETTER THAN EXPECTED.
I bought this jacket in 1986 and still wear it almost daily until summer gets here. I live in an air force town and many of my military friends say it is much better quality than anything they can get through the military. I plan to buy another in black.

I had to replace a leather jacket that I grew out of after 30 yrs and this was just the ticket. fits well over a sweater, good quality leather and is already breaking in nicely. Exactly what I expected from LL. Bean ~

Rated 4 out of 5 by USMC0311 Flying Tiger Jacket
Received the jacket in a timely manner, even during inclement weather. I am 6'2", 220 lbs and the XL Reg fits perfectly in sleeve length, shoulders and chest but the length falls at least 6" below my waist. I would be a proper fit for someone 6' 5" or more. Although the jacket isn't as soft as I had hoped, I still consider it a very good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CASJr Comfortable, stylish, great fit
I've always wanted a leather bomber jacket and this fits the bill very nicely. I bought the dark brown version thinking I would "distress" the leather myself eventually. If I had to make the purchase over again, I'd have bought the distressed version. That's no fault of the manufacturer or the vendor though. What I have is very useful and as advertised. The fit is perfect. The sleeves and design allow for easy arm movement without the cuffs riding up and exposing the wrist. The front zipper is very robust. All in all this is a quality jacket.

I have owned and loved the unlined Flying Tigers jacket since the early seventies. I got it when I was still in highschool, wore it till I out grew it, my son then wore it till he outgrew it (he's now 24) and now saving it for a future grandchild. Even after all these years the jacket still looks great, just now beginning to get a little "worn in" around the edges. nothing else I have ever owned has exhibited this level of craftsmanship, quality and longevity. The material and workmanship on this jacket is absolutely top notch! Would I recommend it to a friend? Absolutely without reservation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tailgunner1944 Great Fit!!!
I am very pleased with my new Flying Tiger Leather Jacket. I owned a similar leather jacket several years ago, made by another company, and it was not as near as nice as this one. I am impressed with the overall workmanship of my new jacket, and the outstanding service of L.L. Bean. I feel like I have purchased a quality product that will give me many years of useful service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Arie427 Very nice leather jacket
Very nice leather jacket. Construction is excellent. Very high quality leather and the fit is perfect. I have a 42-44 chest and a large fits just right. Very warm when I wear a sweater underneath.

A really nice jacket that would be improved if they replaced the one way YK zipper with a two way zipper as there are on other jackets I have from LL Bean. It would make it much more comfortable when driving.
