Rated 1 out of 5 by spiritsman Nice jacket but to heavy and bulky
Liked the jacket but it was to bulky and heavy for me> Also the collar was to rigid. I returned it

I bought this jacket to replace the Flying Tiger Jacket that I bought 20 years ago and have worn continuously in all kinds of weather. Prior to my retirement, I worked as a systems engineering consultant. Then and I suspect now standard engineer dress (unless giving a presentation or meeting a client) was a polo shirt and a leather jacket. My LL Bean Leather Jacket was the envy of the different engineering teams that I worked with both for its style (yes even engineers care about style) and wonderful utility.

My husband had to return a custom made leather jacket because of poor fit. He decided to order this more reasonably priced jacket. He is impressed with this jacket for leather quality and fit. He was so happy that he had to return his custom made jacket because this is superior. The cost of the other jacket was almost double.

Rated 3 out of 5 by abcdgoldberg Mostly good leather jacket
I bought this bomber style jacket for riding on my scooter. I needed something thick to fight the wind, and it does a great job of that. However, the slip-in pockets are too far back and up to be completely comfortable. An extra lining in the pocket might have helped the pockets as well, because when there is something thing in the flap pockets, you can feel them easily. The collar is very stiff, but I suspect, as with a lot of leather products, that it will soften over time. For the moment, the neck area is not that comfortable. Let's hope it improves.

He finally dropped a hint for something he always wanted that I could easily order. The tall fits right and looks great on him. LLBean is giving this old retired guy a little style finally and he is actually enjoying it and not resisting as is his usual behavior..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jimisham fulfills leather jacket dreams for reasonable pric
This jacket is very well made, I think. It fits great, too, and the zipper works every time. I ordered a size larger so I can get it on comfortably over a heavy sweater. The zipper goes all the way up to the top, so at times it rubs my neck uncomfortably when I drive. This might not be a problem if I hadn't ordered the oversize. If I had to do it over, I'd get the solid brown. The faded leather looks actually worn, even close up, which is what I wanted. But it feels a little crispy. Jim

I did not want the distressed brown color but there were no other colors available either online or in the stores. The stretchy wrist cuff is too restrictive but maybe it will loosen up a bit over time. I am a bigger guy and I don't think the lines of the jacket look very good on me, maybe the black version will help, who knows? I expected more from an LL Bean product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rick4398764 Why didn't I buy this jacket 40 years ago?
After uncounted years of looking at this jacket in the catalog I finally broke down and bought it. It is everything it's claimed to be. It fits well and looks great. I was surprised at how heavy the jacket is, but that's just the nature of the beast. The patch pockets are not very roomy and the handwarmers are inconveniently far back, but that is the only thing approaching a gripe I have.
It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JSamuelD Very comfortable, fits me perfect
I really like the fit. Recently I've ordered shirts and jackets in a 2xl tall and they fit like a XL. This jacket is a more of a traditional fit long enough and roomy. I wish the sleeve cuffs were tighter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MGoeHiking Great Jacket
Just wanted to say that this jacket is the best. I live in AZ, so it is cold and dry in the winter and this coat has come in handy. The goatskin is soft and comfortable, but at the same time thick and has a very good quality feel to it. I chose to get the unlined version of the coat because I could layer what was under it myself and it has worked out really well. Great Jacket, I would buy another!!!
