Everything I was expecting and more,
April 4, 2014
By: Jage
from Houston, TX
"My wife bought me the vest version of this full munitions leather jacket six years ago and it has been the best. I love it.
Well, I've been waiting six years now to buy this jacket and the cold weather finally arrived in Houston to justify it. Well, it is absolutely everything I was expecting from Orvis and more. Same great quality, fit, and the always friendly and efficient customer service. I called the store, spoke with Ms. K Mitchell and did she get the ball rolling as my dad use to say. She located the product, called the Vermont or Virginia store, placed my order, and just made the process seamless. PERFECT. It arrived about 10 days later in a nice green Eco friendly coat protector. This isn't the first time that Orvis has gone out of there way for customers.
Houston, Tx."

one day out!,
February 25, 2014
By: gpmdownunder
from Western Australia
"I have the vest which made it an obvious choice for the jacket. The leather is soft and the jacket is generally very good will do what i want it too. Appreciate that it is not too heavy making it more useful in mediterranean climate. My one concern is the bad luck I have with timing at Orvis. Bought the vest and days later the leather sale featured the vest! That was two years ago. Bought the jacket and the next day the President's sale included the jacket with 20o/o off! Having no luck with my online shopping - fortunately the items are good as is the service, though some prior notice of sales could be good?"

Top quality in every regard,
December 6, 2013
By: malvolio
from Meadville, PA
"I researched leather jackets for months before deciding on a replacement for my old bomber jacket. I wanted something a bit more stylish, long enough to fit comfortably over a sweater, and of sufficient quality to last for years as I advance into old age. The Lambskin Munitions jacket seemed the ideal choice; and indeed, it has been even better than I'd expected. A large fits my frame perfectly; the sleeve length is just right for my long arms; the leather is wonderfully soft and supple; and though the jacket isn't heavy, it's perfect for late fall and milder winter days in western Pennsylvania. It is also the most beautiful jacked I've ever owned.
Just as impressive, though, has been Orvis's Customer Service. A month after I bought the jacket, an accident resulted a small patch of discoloration on the front. I contacted Customer Service to ask how the leather might best be treated; they told me that I should seek a leather specialist, but that if I couldn't find one to tackle the problem locally, they would replace the jacket with a new one. That is eventually what happened. I was astonished by the courtesy, the promptness, and the generosity of such service. I've never had anything quite like it before, and it's certainly earned my customer loyalty. Like the leather products it sells, Orvis's service has been impeccable.

Pleasantly Surprised,
November 20, 2013
By: BCcrow43
from Vancouver BC Canada
"I had some reservations about ordering such an expensive piece of clothing online. Quality issues; sizing; the inconvenience of returning goods etc.
Sizing for me was an issue, I seemed to be in-between a large and a medium. I ordered the large because of chest size and waist size. However, I was concerned about sleeve length and fit in the shoulders.
The coat arrived: The quality was excellent (pleasantly surprised) but there were issues with sleeves too long and shoulder fit.
Fortunately I knew a tailor who specialized in leather alterations, and $55.00 later (well worth the investment) the coat was a perfect fit.
I am totally satisfied and expect many years of wear. It was worth the effort as no stores in my area sold leather coats of this quality.

Polyester lining?,

User submitted photo
"According to the description online and in catalog, the jacket is lined "with our 100% soft cotton moleskin". The one I received has a polyester lining.
"Snap-adjustable cuff for secure fit & Stowaway throat latch" were not on my jacket.
I'm a little disappointed in the accuracy of the description.

Fine Leather Jacket,
May 11, 2013
By: Kered
from Greece
"After much research I chose this jacket for its design and style, which I felt would suit my taste and lifestyle. It does and is! I appreciate the help given by Orvis regarding size as in most clothing I am a large. The precise details given led me to order a medium and it is a good fit. The quality of the leather and construction of the jacket are both excellent. I have been waring it now for 4 months and have no complaints."

"Soft, strong and sensuous. If you want to fancy your man all over again, buy him this wonderfully tactile jacket. You'll want to stroke it and smell it constantly, and see your rugged, handsome man in a whole new light."

Nice,but ......,
February 7, 2013
By: miles66
from Lichfield UK
"A really nice jacket, the chest sizing was correct and the materials and finish superb.
But......its a bit short and shows your butt.
This jacket is a bit of a strange length, longer than a bomber and shorter than you might imagine, as a result it can look a bit like a lamp shade as it stands off the hips.
Its a very subjective view, I have returned it and will exchange for a longer style."

Less than excited,
January 28, 2013
from Anchorage AK
"Had been watching this coat for quiet some time ... waiting to see it on sale. The time came, the jacket arrived, but I was just not satisfied with it's cut and fit ... too big at the waist and tended to "hang" on me. It really is a beautiful coat, but unfortunately I felt the need to return it."

Comfortable, classy jacket,
January 13, 2013
By: 271Saxman
from Iowa
"I enjoy the supple finish of the leather. The fit is generous but good for use with sweaters.
My only complaint is the clumsy design of the stand-up collar. First step was to remove the collar fastening strap which is always in the way when not in use.
Agree with other reviewers that the lining materials could be higher quality.

"Very happy with the quality of the jacket. Fits good just wish the straps on the sleeve were a little tighter or adjustable so the sleeve won't keep falling on my hands."

Incredible leather,
December 24, 2012
By: DouginAZ
from Arizona.
"I agree with earlier reviewers. This is not a coat to be worn for work. The incredibly supple leather would not stand up to it. This is a dress leather coat. It can be worn in polite company without embarrassment. It is perfect for the mild winters here in AZ."

Inconsistent sizing,

By: golffnut
from USA
"The quality is fine but the sizing is difficult at best. I first ordered a large for my son as a gift. It fit me perfectly and I'm an xlarge. I sent it back for a medium. I will know after Christmas but I don't think this one will fit him either. The sheeves are really short."

Beautiful leather munitions jacket,
December 6, 2012
By: Nickraw
from Lancashire
"The quality & finish of this jacket is outstanding, although not cheap it represents excellent value for money. I am sure this jacket would last several lifetimes.
My only criticism is, I feel that for such an expensive quality item as this, perhaps Orvis should offer some different sleeve lengths, or an alteration service.
