Danny DeCoteau from Pleasantville, Somewhere:
I read all the reviews about the size problems with this vest being too small. I wear an XL jacket, vest, shirt with a 48" chest and 38" waist. Everyone said order two or 3 sizes up sizes up. One guy said he ordered a 3XL and it measured to be a 46" while the chart says a 3XL is a 53" so I ordered a 4XL based on the comments here. The vest arrived very fast, I took it out of the package and it was a 54" just as the chart says so the size reviews are wrong. I bought the vest on a free shipping deal. I just sent it back to L.A. at an expense of $11.00, so much for my free shipping. I will have to wait now that I ordered a 2XL to see if this one fits allowing 2 inches for movement. The vest is a quality made vest but it is really irritating that people can't measure properly or just don't know what they are talking about

Jerome M. from PALMYRA, NY:
Great vest at an unbelievable price. The quality is there and the look is so stylish and different. It is just like wearing one of my fly fishing vests. I'm sure what everyone else said about the size is true, if your belly is larger than your chest, but mine isn't. I ordered a 3X and I am 6'2", 245 lbs, 53" chest and size 38 waist. I am wearing the vest over a light flannel shirt and it makes me look great! It is just a touch snug at the third button down. Get a size larger than your normal if you plan on wearing a heavy sweat shirt or hoodie under it, or plan on packing a lot of bulky items in the many pockets.

Herbert R. from AUBURN, AL:
I had my eye on this vest for a long time, and once I got it, it did not disappoint. What kept me from ordering was an ongoing size uncertainty. I always fit a medium in this type of item. I wear a 42 regular jacket, which can be be medium plus depending on the cut, the size chart shows negligible difference between small medium and large, so I looked at the comments. I am 70.5 inches tall, 165 pounds, 33 inch waist and 40-41 chest. The medium is my near perfect fit, though it is a bit looser at armpits than at waist, and unlike the size chart, it kind of tapers from chest to waist. Bottom line is the best size for me is the medium I get in shirts and jackets and other vests. I noticed that a couple guys my height but weighing more found a large perfect, and another said his size is a medium and it worked for me. And the people who said it was too small, or multiple sizes off were all purchasers of degrees of XL. Maybe there is a degree of inter-item variation on size and I got lucky. Or, with the size problems seeming to increase the higher up the chart you go, maybe the smaller your size the closer the fit to what you might be used to buying for other products. If you're around a medium or large, look to the other comments by people who are in those size ranges. And as I said, I wanted a vest just like this for a long time. Several times I nearly bought one costing several times this price, though they were lighter weight leather or not of this exact style. I'm glad I waited till I felt confident to buy this one.

Eric J. from YUMA, AZ:
What a great value in a great looking vest. High quality thick yet soft and supple leather. Inside on the left is a pocket that fits my Ruger LCR revolver, or my Bond Arms .45LC derringer. Inside on the right is a pocket that fits a wallet, passport, or something that size. Plenty of pockets outside too. You can carry a gun and lots of other junk in this vest and it doesn't show through or bulge because the leather is so nice and thick. All the pockets inside and out are lined in a nice soft but thick black felt-like material. If you carry a piece in one of those pocket holsters that's supposed to not come out of your jeans pocket with the gun, that same holster works in the pockets of this vest the same way. The material that lines the pockets of this vest hold on to the outside "grippy" part of a pocket holster just fine. It runs small, just like most of the jackets here. I wear a size XL shirt or jacket most other places. I ordered a 3XL vest for myself. It fits perfectly, albiet with no room for me "to grow". I'll either have to stay in shape, or buy a larger vest! With a 3XL size vest, it's comfortable over a Tee-shirt, or a long sleeve flannel shirt, or both a Tee-shirt and long sleeve flannel shirt. But if I wear anything else under this size 3Xl vest, it's too tight to comfortably button. So I normally wear an XL in shirts, vests, jackets, but this vest in 3XL is a small as I'd dare order for myself to wear! But I just love it. And it's at least 1/4 the price of a similar article at the Harley shop!

Gerald J. from STOCKTON, CA:
I ordered this vest in the large size and it was too small. I used the size chart and measured myself at 45inches for the chest, but I had to send it back..of course it was out of stock so I had to wait 60 days! I learned that these vest are manufactured in Pakistan and run small. So, I re-ordered in 2XL. The 2XL is a little roomy for my tastes but I don't want to go through that long return process again..With a thick shirt it's fine...The quality and workmanship is remarkable for the price. I'll quit while I'm still ahead..

Jay from SAVAGE, MN:
I had a previous vest from Leather-Up for a couple of years and wanted another vest. I had it narrowed down between this vest and another (out of stock). I am 5'10', 180, 36-38w. My belly a bit bigger than my chest. I wear L or XL depending on the clothing. I ordered a L but it was too tight around the belly. Exchanged for XL, and that works. The leather is very heavy but supple. The abundance of pockets (8) is unreal. Love this vest.

Chuck C. from Morgantown, WV:
I do like this vest. But be warned that the sizes are all screwed up. I am a XXL type guy. All shirts and jackets are XXL. However, after three tries, I have to settle for a tight fitting 5XL. I can not use the vest over anything but a light weight T-shirt. LeatherUp.com was good to work with but I am disappointed that I do not have a vest for all the reasons I wanted.

I was very impressed by this vest. The quality far exceeds the price. The leather is soft but tough, and the finish is top rate! I've spent twice as much for half as nice. The comments on size ring true by the way. I am normally a 2X, and the 5X is a little snug after lunch

Mark R G. from CLOVERDALE, CA:
A great vest! I wear vests partly for the pockets, and this vest has plenty. Very sturdy, heavy leather, without being too stiff. Very comfortable right out of the shipping box; will get better after being worn a while. I'm writing mostly to help with choosing the correct size. Reviews from other customers were very helpful to me in choosing a size, so I'd like to build on that. As others have noted, this vest needs to be ordered several sizes larger than one might think. I ordered this vest in "2XL", which fits me perfectly, worn over a T-shirt and denim work shirt. I am 6'0", 200 lbs; I wear "large" work shirts, size 48 sports jacket, 34W jeans. I'm a "mature" guy, but my chest is still larger than my gut. If the reverse is true for you, then go with even larger sizes. LeatherUp service was amazing! I'm wearing this vest three days after I placed my order.

Travis S. from LOUISVILLE, KY:
Recently had this shipped and the vest itself is awesome, but the size chart is ridiculously off. I have about a 46-47" chest so i figured that the 2XL would have room to spare, but it was still tight enough that I could almost pop a snap when I took a deep breath. Waiting on a 3XL not, but they are out of stock...almost tempted to say heck with it and take the 4XL if they have it (only an inch bigger than the 3XL). Either way, it is an incredible vest and I hope to actually get to wear it someday, but make sure to add at least 2 to 3 sizes larger than what you usually wear when ordering.

Douglas E. from RIVERSIDE, CA:
A hell of a nice leather vest at this price. It is of both robust weight leather as well as having a nice grain to it. No doubt we Americans eat a much more calorie rich diet than the Pakistanis who manufactured these vests. I'm a 46-48 chest (jacket); but my waist(belly) is more like a 50-52. The clever zippers on the vest's sides for tailoring the vest don't afford enough leeway for my 2x-larg vest to be buttoned closed; but around my chest and arms it fits very nicely. Rather than returning it for a 3x-large(or larger) I'm simply going to have a local leather tailor 'expand' on the "clever zippers". That way I can button it closed when desired; but tailor it down so it doesn't flap in the breeze like a flag when UN-buttoned. As far as LeatherUp's service is concerned it is First Rate! I ordered late on a Monday afternoon and the FED-X truck was at my door Wednesday morning!

I agree with most of the comments on size. I ordered this for my husband and we ordered the 4X which is the normal size he wears and it is not even close to fitting him. We ordered this vest and another. We loved the vests but will be returning them because most do not come in a 6X. Too bad though because they are very nice looking and a great price.

John H. from Oradell, NJ:
I must admit at this inexpensive price I was half expecting that 'cheap shiny cardboard-like' kind of leather- but this vest is the real deal, great weight & feel with a nice flannel like lining in ALL the pockets. The sizing, as often mentioned here can be tricky though... I'm 5'10" & 185 lbs. 45" chest / 34" waist and the XL fits fine over a tee shirt- however if I were wearing it over a sweatshirt or wearing a lot of stuff on my belt (phone, knife, flashlight etc.) I'd definitely need to bump up a size...

Colin T. from WEST ALLIS, WI:
As seems to be the case with all Leatherup products the sizing runs on the small side. I had to send the first one back in exchange for a bigger size. The exchange was painless and smooth. I sent the initial vest back and just over a week later I received another one. That being said this vest is great. The machine stitched seems are straight and tight with no puckering of the leather. The pockets are deep and roomy and very easy to access while wearing it. The leather is soft and pliant and strong. I have no doubts that this vest will last me a very very long time. I have a 52 inch chest and had to order a 5XL for it to fit well over a jacket I liked this vest for the straight seem across the back versus the others that come down in a V. The straight seem is more conducive to my club patch. Great quality of product, hassle free exchange, great price, fast processing, cheap shipping. It's hard to find a vendor that provides all of that these days. But Leatherup does, so they've just acquired a life long customer.

Anthony B. from WHITTIER, CA:
I agree with the previous guy that made a review on this item. The item is great looking but big problem in size. I am size 49 chest 46 waist measured with a seamstress tape measure and ordered the 3xl which should be sizd 2xl easily but decided to go 3xl. I did receive a 3xl but when I measured the vest laying flat it measured 23 accross x 2 = 46. I am hoping the 5xl will do the trick because it is a great price. I think by me calling and telling the customer service they had a problem with the chart he wasn't very interested and asked me to measure myself! So when buying the item ask them to measure the arm pit to arm pit size of their item to see if it really matches what their chart shows.
