Paul E. from STEVENSVILLE, MT:
Like many others, I originally bought my regular size (XL), which didn't fit,due to the Manufacturer skimping on the amount of leather used to make the Vest. Jowever, after returning it for size 3XL, the Vest did fit me well enough. As to the Concealed Carry pocket, my FNH 5.7X28mm, with a 30 round mag. didn't allow it yo be closed inside the holster Pocket, and closed either. But changing it out for a 20 round Mag, did allow it to be totally concealed, and the pocket buttoned closed! As to lasting qualities, and durability, those remain to be determined?

Scott D. from HERRIMAN, UT:
The vest is awesome. It really is a great vest for the price. Heavy leather, nice construction, The buttons and pocket zippers seem heavy duty. It truly is a great buy for the money. BUT! The sizing chart is RIDICULOUS! The chest seems to be the proper size. The waist.. forget about it. I read through all the reviews before buying it. I stuck with the Large based on my chest size being a 45. The chest fit perfect! A little room to put on a flannel shirt or a hoodie. I wanted that fit as I already have a looser vest that fits over a riding jacket and other layers. The waist...... It fit perfect! I have a 33" waist.... NOT a 46" waist. I'm 6'-1", 195 lbs and have a slim/athletic build with the already mentioned 45" chest and 33" waist, and this vest perfect! But I know not all of us are built the same and this vest leaves NO room for a beer gut. On top of that, I really wanted a vest that has the hand pockets in lieu of the chest pockets. Well, this vest has them, but I think to accommodate the hand pockets, the vest is long in the torso. I have a long torso, and this went down low on my waist, which causes the vest to push up when you sit on the motorcycle. I can't stand that. So... I sent the vest back to get the same one I already have patched up which sits high and doesn't push up, but it has chest pockets. Can't win them all. I have no complaints about the vests construction or look. It really is a NICE vest. Wish I could have kept it, but if you are very tall and thin this might be a great vest for you. If your shorter and wider... this one will not be for you unless you go up considerably in size.

Robert G. from TUCSON, AZ:
Can't say enough about this transaction, the vest is first rate almost to heavy for the warm, monsoon summer weather here in Tucson Az but will be perfect for winter. I am 5'10' 190 lb with a 46" chest and I bought the 2XL so it's a tad bit big but fits perfect worn over a denim jacket I wear for riding in the winter. The shipping was incredibly fast, ordered on 6/27 and found it in front of my door on the morning of 7/1. Now just have to purchase a vest that will be more comfortable in the summer.

Mike C. from MEADVIEW, AZ:
I normally wear a 2X in everything. So, I ordered a 3X just to be sure it fit. Received it fast but was way too small. Sent it back at my expense ordered a 5X it fit perfect. This vest runs very small. The leather is good quality & the price was right, But people need to know that they are from a foreign country & run SMALL

Michael S. from Waynesboro, GA:
First of all, I ordered this vest and got it 4 days later. Excellent service. The vest is well-made. Nice leather and really well constructed. The sizing is a little bit crazy. I am 5' 11" and weigh 205. I ordered and XL and it is snug, but not so snug that I want to go up a size. The cut of this vest is tighter around the mid-section that at the chest and shoulders, so if I had any more gut, I would have to go up a size or break out the extenders.

Andrew K. from FREEHOLD, NJ:
The leather on this vest is excellent. I am 5-11 and weigh 202. The XL is a bit snug when I am riding but otherwise it fits good. The snaps are not the best. They are a bit loose and come undone easily. For the money this is a great buy.

Robert P. from MOUNT VERNON, NY:
ROBERT PATTERSON From Mount Vernon, NY I originally ordered this vest in 3x and when I tried it on it was a little snug. So I returned it for a 4x and it fits perfect. I love the quality of the leather in this vest, very heavy and strong. I've looked at other so call leather MC vests but none compare.

Great vest! Quality leather. The fit was perfect. The gun pocket allows me to ride with peace of mind knowing that my weapon is secure. As always, the delivering time was very fast and the service was fantastic. I've never been disappointed with Leather Up. Frank S. from Scotts Valley, CA

Lee C. from GREENCASTLE, PA:
Love the vest (XL) I'm 6' around 205 but its a little tight around my stomach (if I would lose that it would be fine) I well need to buy some extenders and that should take of the problem or lose the weight. I have carried my 9mm S and W with no problem. It's also great to sew your patches on as well. Leather up is a great company and I will continue to order from them and shipping was fast!

It looks great, just as advertised. Fits very well. Was going to use it as a club vest, but thought it was too nice to put patches on it and ruin it. Shipped and arrived in a very timely manner.

Guy Wyne from ROANOKE, VA:
This is an excellent vest at an incredible price. It's made of high quality leather and has many nice features. I especially like the inside gun pocket with a sturdy loop that retains the gun in a vertical position for easy access. I highly recommend this vest.

Although the vest runs on the small side, I love it. Well made, heavy leather, robust snaps. Getting my HOG patch sewn on Saturday at the dealer. Now if the snow would end...

Roscoe S. from Channelview, TX:
My vest came in today and I loved the fit! I can put my Kel-Tec PF9 and an extra magazine in the gun pocket with ease. I had to order a 3XL as some on here had warned it runs a little tight. I do believe it will stretch out a little with wear in but fits fine now with a sweat shirt under it. This will go nicely with the #680 leather pants I ordered also. Leather up has gotten my attention with quality merchandise at an affordable price!

First impression is it is exactly what I was wanting. Had to wait awhile for them to be available again. Finally got one! Got it in and it fits good. Seems to be well made and it looks great. Time will tell how it holds up and such. I liked it so much I purchased a second one as a gift. Would recommend this vest to anyone if you're wanting one. Fast shipping as usual with LeatherUp.

I priced a generic vest at D and B, was about $100 with tax and not near the quality. Just ordered a jacket and vest for the girl friend. leatherup.com has my vote for price and quality.

Bruce S. from BALL GROUND, GA:
I like this vest but really have not worn it much as my club has it for patching. The fit is a little snug so order accordingly. I ordered extenders as I knew I would need them, especially when worn over anything other than a shirt. I like the design and quality of the leather and overall am very pleased. The gun pocket worked fine for my .38 but not for my 9mm. It is a larger gun with a 16 shot clip. I think it will work fine for smaller semi-automatics.

Great vest but I wear a med and order a x-lg and it fits snug. I really like the feel and look but beware it runs VERY SMALL make sure you order it large, make that very large to make it fit. the gun pocket is very good weather you use the holster or just drop it in

I never received the item. Received a e-mail that it was sent then three days later received another e-mail stating it was out of stock. Most items I received from LeatherUP have been good material, strong leather and well constructed.

Faustino P. from CRP CHRISTI, TX:
Outstanding quality in a leather vest. Gun pocket fits my 9mm Smith&Wesson perfect. Good heavy durable leather. 2 pockets on outside left and right sides, one inner pocket on right side and gun pocket in left inner. I usually wear XL in all my shirts, bought the XXL but was too snug. So ordered the XXXXL for comfortable loose fit. I give this vest 5 stars.
