    This is a fabulous jacket. I have never used the word "fabulous" before regarding any leather jacket I own (5). This jacket is pre-eminent! Schott has really knocked this one out of the ballpark.
    It looks awesome, and is a joy to wear. It is a bit heavy, and that takes some getting used to, just like many other things in life - single-malt scotch whisky, chilis, and marriage (!) But, like all of these, it is just wonderful!

    This is, quite simply, the finest leather jacket I have ever owned. (I own four.) Good-looking, insanely well-made and comfortable. It is a bit heavy, but one gets used to that through frequently wearing it. As others have said, if you are considering it, pull the trigger and get it. A gift from the gods of leather!

    Naked cowhide has a beautiful matte finish. Schott heirloom quality. Size medium was perfect (5’8” 180lbs 42” chest) if you want the fitted look. Sleeve length and back length was perfect for someone my height. Cut slightly below belt line without making you look short. Leather jacket search is over!

    This jacket is amazing! Absolutely flawless in every way! This jacket feels like something made back in the days when stuff was designed to last forever. This is my second Schott jacket and I'm eyeing more! Bravo!

    Soft but heavy weight leather in superior Schott quality made in the U.S.A.. Excellent design - works on and off the motorcycle ;-) I am 6'3", 220lbs, chest 46", and broad shoulders: A 2XL was the right choice for me, as I like to wear a sweatshirt underneath. With a length of 28 + 3/8 inches it works well for tall people. I highly recommend this jacket and would buy it again: It's something else - don't hesitate.

    Like all Schott products the cowhides are superbly tanned, cut, and sewn. And you definitely can tell the hides were matched and drum tanned and dyed not sprayed like those prepared in China. This jacket will definitely out-live me.

    I would not hesitate to tell anyone to first look at a Schott coat or jacket before purchasing any other brand... period!

    I'm very impressed with the quality and style of this jacket. I've been wanting a high-quality leather jacket for years now and have been disappointed by all the inexpensive, low-quality "genuine leather" jackets I've bought. Just taking this jacket out of the box and seeing and feeling the quality of the leather was enough to put a smile on my face. The leather is incredibly soft and smooth to the touch but has just enough body/stiffness (I guess the term is "hand" ?) to it that it holds its iconic shape well. You can really tell that a lot of careful work went into the creation and design. Everything is top-notch quality. The pockets are big, easily accessible, and lined with the same awesome fabric as the inside of the jacket. I did have to exchange for a size down, but I know this is only because I'm oddly proportioned and nothing to do with the cut of the jacket. I have a very wide chest but I'm also incredibly short. A small was too long on me (in the arms in particular), but fit great in the chest area. The XS was perfect in length, but it's tight in the chest when zipped. Ultimately, I kept the XS because I don't generally wear my jackets zipped anyway. Overall, I'm incredibly pleased with the fit and quality of this jacket. I feel good buying a made in USA product.

    Super supple, but tough leather. Feels like it will take almost no time to break in the leather. A good Fall and early Spring jacket. Love that the hardware is a gunmetal color instead of silver. Huge inside pocket that could easily make this a CWP jacket. Absolute perfect fit.
