Jacket feels like it will take quite awhile to break in because of the high quality thick leather it is made of. I can't wait until it's softens up and sits more relaxed on my body. Very high quality jacket
IM AGE 67 HEIGHT 5.7" WEIGHT 170 POUNDS I LIKE A FAIRLY SNUG FIT THE SIZE GUIDE SUGGESTED A SIZE 44 BUT I OPTED FOR A 42 I ONLY WEAR A TEE SHIRT UNDER WITH THE ZIP OUT LINER BUT FITS AND FEELS GREAT . I LOVE SCHOTT JACKETS LONG MAY THEY MAKE THEM !
Before I review I am 5’9” 160-165lbs with chest size of 42.5” (measured without a shirt on) with a pant waist size of 32”…This jacket is awesome and Jerri on the customer support side helped answer all of my questions.. It has a modern sporty style and an athletic fit. It’s heavy duty and when they say stiff, it does come stiff but it will break it just fine. The warmth this jacket provides is incredible and I believe when they say it’ll last 10 + years! Zippers are of very high quality and the length that the sleeves of the jacket come down are just below the wrist. In other words it doesn’t come close to the knuckles but it’s not too short to where your wrists are exposed. If you’re debating on this jacket, don’t, just buy it! The measurement tool provided by the site is accurate, so long as your measurement for chest size is accurate. It’s deff worth the money and their customer service will fix any issues or answer and questions you have promptly!
This jacket rocks, thought it would be stiffer from other reviews, but its pretty soft and looks great. I'm a 46 chest and went with a size fifty, could have gone smaller easily but like loose clothing plus like layering option. money well spent, don't see any negatives about this jacket.
This is my second Single Rider Steerhide Leather Motorcycle Jacket first one lasted 30 years, hope this one does as well.
It is as they say stiff right out of the box. Perfect quality, perfect fit. Absolutely the best.
175cm, 74kg, size 40 is nice to me.
Very High quality hard leather. Will probably last at least a lifetime. Tight in the wrist when zipped which is what I wanted for motorcycling.
This jacket is literally the best and is definitely worth it. I got mine 18 years ago with my first motorcycle and have completely loved it. I’m doing the review now because I’m shopping for a Schott for my wife and I saw all these reviews and realized people need to know the quality they are getting when they buy one of these. It comes a bit stiff in the beginning but then breaks in over time to feel like second skin. I bought mine a little bigger and long in the sleeve because I’m 6’6” tall and wanted some room while riding. I’m a 44L in a suit. I got a 46L in the jacket and it’s just right for what I was looking to achieve. In hindsight, my correct size would also have fit great, but I just wanted a little extra room while riding. You’ll love it!
I had wanted this jackets for years but had trouble spending the money. I didn't have access to a retail outlet to see the jacket up close. Trusting what you see on the internet and believe the reviews can be difficult.
My jacket arrived yesterday. It is perfect. The workmanship is unbelievable. The leather quality is uniform and without defect. I feel like I should have paid more. I'm certain it will take some time to soften the leather so that it conforms to my shape.
I was bouncing between a 42 and 44 because of the size recommendations on the site. I wear a 42 for suits, etc and sometimes so can be larger than I like. I bought a 44 for this jacket. Glad I did. You should follow the recommendations on the site and probably size up from your normal unless you want it to be tighter than a glove.
