Arthur G. from MOUNTAIN CITY, TN:
Love this jacket! Im 6'1 (185cm) I also weigh 185lbs. I always have a hard time finding a jacket that fits right and has long enough arms for when i stretch for the handlebars. I measured myself just like in the picture with a tailors tape. The size chart is spot on perfect. I ordered a size medium. Now to the jacket itself. Great quality nice and heavy. The liner does not move when you pull your arms out or in. If you want to wear a hoodie or a heavier long sleeve you need to take liner out for sure. In the 15 years of riding has to be the best jacket i have had. And i didnt break the bank. Very happy

Mark H. from CINCINNATI, OH:
Jacket was more than I expected for the cost. The jacket is a heavy leather jacket which is what you need and want for riding, this is not a fashion jacket although it looks nice enough to be. It fits snug and comfortable and I imagine it will only get more comfortable with wear and conditioning. I'm 6'2" and 260 pounds. I bought a 2XL which fits great but would probably advise others of the same size to get a 3XL if they want a little more room to feel less restrictive. 5 STARS!!!!

John S. from glenolden, PA:
Really nice jacket. I'm 6'0" 215lbs. I normally fit into XL shirts, jackets, etc. However after reading the reviews for this jacket and after previously getting a 2XL vest from Leatherup, I ordered the 2XL and it fits perfect; with and without the liner. When I received it, I tried it on, then tried to remove the liner. As soon as I tried to unsnap the sleeve of the liner from the sleeve of the jacket, the extremely thin piece of leather they used to attach the snap to the inside of the jacket sleeve tore right off. I did not want to go thru the hassle of exchanging it only to receive an identical item with the identical problem, I decided to sew a piece of velcro to replace the snap. All is well now. The manufacturer should consider this simple and effective solution. Other than that small issue, it seems like a great jacket and a great deal.

stephen f. from ST JOHNSBURY, VT:
The first jacket I ordered which was a different style and brand of this one was way to small by going according to their charts. it cost me $28 to ship back for a jacket that I went by their sizing chart. so when I ordered this jacket which is completely different BRAND AND STYLE than the first one and I ordered 2 sizes bigger and it fit perfect. the jacket is an awesome one that will last me the rest of my life. The jacket is real heavy duty and massively strong with elbow and shoulder thick pads to protect you if you go down. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a terrific jacket that will last you forever.

Noel D. from Killara, New South Wales:
Great jacket! I am 188cm, 100kg and bought the 2XL Perfect fit. Great quality. I'm not sure about the armour under stress but it is certainly comfortable and well positioned. The only niggle for me was the removable liner zip came away on first test but LeatherUp customer service came up trumps and I still own the jacket. The vents are well placed and functional.

Lee H. from NEW BADEN, IL:
Excellent purchase for my hubby. He is 6ft 270lbs so I got him a 4x and it fits perfectly with just a tiny bit of extra room for comfort. Just remember, you don't ride a motorcycle standing up! People buy jackets based on standing up not sitting down. He has a belly on him, that's why I went with the bigger sixe. Normally he wears a 2x with everything else, but if I had ordered a 2x for the jacket, I would have had to send it back in. He looks awesome in it and he LOVES it!!!! Great buy, great value! We're new customers, but customer's for life!!!

Martin C. from PLEASANT HILL, MO:
Was very surprised at the quality and fit. The only way to miss with this,is to not order from the chart.measure and check the chart for idem you are buying Not all charts size the same. I bought a vest and this jacket. The vest was 5x and fit great,this jacket is 4x and fits great. Both true to the chart measurements. Wasn't sure of the armor,but,after seeing it,it will be a benefit to have extra protection without giving up comfort. The liner sleeves snap in place,which is nice. Well worth the money

James H. from Clermont, GA:
Great jacket! I was looking for a motor jacket that didn't have the total motor look, that I could also wear when not riding. This one fit the bill perfectly. Being the spring of the year I took out the lining for the warmer weather. It was 80 degrees today, and with the vents open it was very comfortable. I don't think I'll be wearing my 'real' motorcycle jacket after getting this one. I think Leatherup hit a home run with this one!

David F. from FAIRVIEW, UT:
Got mine off clearance page and it's a super nice jacket for the price. Too early to tell about durability but quality looks reasonably good. Fit was fine in spite of all the "warnings" about needing to order bigger. Probably people not understanding that motorcycle jackets are SUPPOSED to fit close. I'm a 6ft tall slim fellow of 160 lbs and a medium even has room for a light sweater underneath on extra cool days. It's kinda stiff, but that's to be expected given the armor and heavy leather protection I bought it for. Leatherup.com is bookmarked on my browser!

Awesome Jacket. I thought he woulnt be comfortable being hes a big guy. 6'2 at 295 pds. I think they run small so i ordered 6L , hes a 3x usually. I had to make an exchange and they were great with helping me to get it right. The leather is of good quality for the price. Hubby says its so comfortable. Looks good on him as well. Warm and not a suficating kind of jacket, Moves well and falls well on the body. Will send friends here. Thank you for all my bike needs.

Ethan B. from MOORESVILLE, NC:
Purchased my first leather jacket from leatherup, been riding in it for 3 weeks now and it has worn in well. A bit stiff like all new leather. I am 5'11 and 160 lbs with an athletic build and the small actually fits me quite well. I am normally a medium in other brand/street jackets, but i followed the sizing charts provided, my only complaint is that it is a bit short. Quality made besides the zipper pull tabs which are thin as paper; i broke 2 in the first day, but the zippers still function well. The inside sleeve snap broke off literally the first time i tried it on, but this shouldnt be too big of an issue. This jacket is great for the bipolar NC spring weather; i have ridden nights in the mid 40's with no liner and been plenty warm at speeds of around 60, also rode in 85 degree afternoons without too much heat due to the vents in the biceps, back, and chest. sleeves are a bit tight, but overall this is a great jacket and i expect it to last for a long time (i can see alot of replacement snaps and zipper tabs however). For the price you cannot beat this jacket

Charles M. from SUGAR HILL, GA:
I am 6'0 and 195. I ordered a Large and it is a perfect fit for me. Great quality, I feel like it is a 400 dollar jacket that I stole for under 150. All together great jacket. I believe if this one ever wears out (which I do not think will happen) I will buy another one. I only had one issue, the little tabs that are attached to the zippers are connected by metal round impressions. Some of the "round impressions" were deformed. Other than that, a much needed 5 stars!

Jeff C. from TYLER, TX:
Very heavy leather jacket. I'm 5'9" 185lbs, and bought the Large. It fits snug in belly area (my fault) but otherwise it is perfect. The sleeves are long but they should be for a motorcycle jacket. It is warm. I've ridden with the temperatures in the low 30's and it was fine for my 20 minute commute with a full fairing. I rated the finish as 4 because the first day that I wore it was a very moist day. When I got to work the leather had turned gray in some areas. I emailed customer service and they were very helpful. They were willing to take it back on return but they wanted me to try one thing first. They said to wipe the whole jacket down with a damp cloth. That worked good and I haven't had any other issues. One of the tassles on the front vent zipper fell off after the first ride, but I didn't think that was a big deal. Overall I think that it is an excellent jacket for the money!

dan m. from CHARLOTTE, NC:
Fantastic jacket. I am 6' 180 ibs. I have a 34" long waist for my height with a 32" inseam and a large fits me perfectly. As the other reviewers stated the sleeve length is ample and the overall length is as well which was a concern due to my proportions. I have a number of track leathers I use so I took the armor out of the sleeves which make it more comfortable (as it would with any jacket) for use off the bike. Removable liner is a great feature, you can't beat the jacket for the price.

David K. from SAINT LOUIS, MO:
I've had more expensive leather motorcycle jackets and I think this is good value for the price. It's a little long in front which causes it to ride up when I am on the bike but also will be usable as a general purpose jacket. If it had a two way zipper that would be perfect. I am 6'1" and about 230 and typically wear an XL but went to the 2XL on this and it fits well- not at all tight and sleeves are plenty long. I took the lining out but can wear another layer under it when required. Shipping was very fast- ordered Wednesday afternoon and got it Saturday in Missouri.

Dan M. from Mohegan Lake, NY:
An excellement jacket. Made with heavy leather that has removable shoulder & elbow armor. Good zippers, snaps & very well made. It has a full polyester liner that zips & snaps out. 3 inner pockets & 2 slash hand pockets outside. 2 each chest, sleeve & back vents. For reference: I'm 5'10", 225lbs. & my shoulders are wide, the 2XL fits snug with good sleeve & back length. I might get another in 3XL or I might lose some weight. Overall this is a well made jacket that I highly recommend & can't wait to ride in, sometimes I hate winter.

Got a great price on jacket a few weeks ago so I bought it and I am not disappointed. Looks and feels as good as jackets that cost 4 times as much. Very soft leather and very heavy duty. I am 6'-0" tall and 205 lbs. Ordered a 2XL and it is the right fit. Not too tight and leaves room for a sweatshirt underneath. Very happy with Leaatherup.com. Always good service and good prices.

Frank G. from LAKEWOOD, CO:
I purchased this jacket for the cooler Colorado riding. I'm 6' and 195 lbs, I ordered a large. It fits snug with the liner in but I like the tight fit, I'm sure it will be great in the warmer weather without the lining. The sleeve length is perfect when on the bike. It's very warm and wind proof. I ride a BMW RT and am very satisfied with the jacket.

Marshall D. from ADKINS, TX:
This jacket looks great. It's comfortable, soft, it moves well with me, and it fits perfect. I'm 6'3", 255lbs, and I'm carrying some extra weight in the middle so I ordered the 3XL. Zippers are high quality and zip easy. Jacket isn't tight and doesn't feel like it's choking me. I have full range of motion in the arms and waist. I really like the hefty weight of the jacket but it doesn't weigh you down. I don't ride, I bought the jacket for the style, so I took out the armor. It helps the jackets fit and flexibilityl. Front pockets are small and won't carry much but who cares? Very happy with the purchase.

Kurt B. from clearwater, FL:
I'm an average 6' 180 lbs and the arms are tight (with the armor out), and the body is a little baggy, (with the armor out). It came with a very strong horsey smell which seems to be fading. That's the bad, here's the good: this is a beautiful jacket without graphics or manufacturer advertising that vents well, has good zippered features and includes elbow and shoulder armor ( but no back protector). Oustanding jacket for the money. Sure, I'd rather have a Vanson, but those are what? $700 or so and this is $100.

Jason M. from DELAWARE, AR:
Great jacket! I am 6'1, 215 lbs. and I ordered the Large. It fits great but it is a little smug (that is how I prefer it). The sleeves were a little long until I got on my motorcycle and gripped the handlebars. The sleeves were then a perfect length to extend just over the edge of my gloves. The jacket is high quality and the armor is not too bulky. The jacket keeps me warm in cold weather. I have not worn it yet in hot weather so I do not know how well the vents work.

5 Stars all the way. Took a gamble on the comments by previous raters. Stupid idea. I'm 5' 9" 175 lbs but ordered a large. Sleeves were too long - to the middle knuckle of middle finger - so ordered a medium. Like Michael in UT, I wear mine daily as it's cold her in Florida, believe it or not! On my bike, no wind passes through and the liner keeps me warm even on windy days. Look out Stugis!!

Don A. from PLEASANT PLN, OH:
I've purchased several other and more expensive jackets from LeatherUp only to have to return them for one reason or another, mostly fit. The jackets on here typically just don't fit the US man's body. So, I took a gamble on this one based on the two reviews but mainly the fact the one guys review said if you're skinny that it would be a tent. I'm 5'11" and weigh about 225 with a 44 chest and 38 waist. I bought the XL and after removing the armor it fits pretty good. The armor is just too restrictive in my opinion. This jacket has just enough room in the waist and stomach area such that it actually feels comfortable. Zippers and snaps are good. It's warm enough but the zippered vents do leak a little and the front zipper does not go all the way to the top such that it is covered by the collar flap and snap. It leaves a little hole there for air to get right to your neck. I'll probably have some piece of leather added to this area as well as add somthing more on the inside with velcro to block the vents from leaking during cold weather riding months. This jacket does have the removable lining which I left in. So overall for the price it looks good, feels good and will do the job. The price was definitely right so I'll keep this one. :-)

Geoff S. from EAST CANTON, OH:
For the money this jacket is great. I just got it and it fits well. Maybe not perfectly but without going to a store to try on a ton of different jackets, I wouldn't expect it to have a tailored feel to it. Regardless it will work great and I love that it has a zip out lining. Similar jackets I was seeing at motorcycle shops in my area were easily running $200 so I feel this was a great buy! And the shipping was nice and quick. Although I don't care for the smell of the jacket... that should hopefully fade over time. Would definitely order again.
