Excellent product!

5 5
I have been interested in purchasing an Overland Bomber style jacket for many years. The cost was a concern and the fact is that while it gets cold where we live, it doesn't get so cold as to warrant purchasing an Overland Bomber B-3 jacket. I kept an eye on your product and was hesitant to purchase it until I visited your store in Napa andI tried on the jacket for myself. The Classic Sheepskin B-3 Bomber Jacket simply exudes quality. It is extremely comfortable and just wearing it gives me a sense of security and confidence that I made an exceptional investment. I am not a clothing type person. In fact, I rarely make expensive purchases for any parts of my wardrobe. However, I made an exception with my Overland B-3 Bomber jacket and have zero regrets. I would highly recommend this product to anyone and everyone. It is a product that will last me a lifetime.

A must purchase! It might appear to be a lot of money; however after a couple of years worth of wear this jacket is the best purchase ever! My wife insisted I get something warm and she swears by Overland. I wear this jacket 7-8 months out of the year and am never disappointed. Best made - seams are still perfect, the zipper is perfect, the hood can be taken off for a lighter jacket in spring or fall. You will not regret it.

Nice but not perfect

4 5
Over all a nice jacket and great that it is available in short. The only things not so good are the pocket lining, I wish were a warmer fabric like flannel. Also the hood is so big it's unusable it comes half way down my face. I would need a 6" longer neck or head for it to fit. Haven't worn it outside yet but seems like it would be very warm. Still debating if I should keep or return?

This bomber jacket is THE BOMB! Love the color, ruggedness of the leather and warmth of the shearling lining. Smells great too.

Best ever jacket

5 5
Bought this as a birthday gift to myself (just turned 74). I always wanted a really warm bomber jacket - something for the cooler weather up here in rural New York and a jacket to make my motorcycling more comfortable when the temperatures drop. It fits really well - I am 5'7" and 140 lbs. got the small/short version. Perfect. It is a beautiful jacket, very high quality and very warm. Cosmetically it is a perfect match with my royal enfield classic 500 bike. Very impressive and worth the money (too bad it took me this long to invest in this) my wife thinks it is the best purchase I have made (I have several motorcycle jackets).

Very happy

The recipient was very pleased with the fit, quality, and overall appearance of the item. We tried a previous company called Merino Mood and we were unhappy with the quality, authenticity, and size measurements, and as such were ready to give up on buying a real leather jacket online. I'm so glad Overland came through for us.

There were more products catered to my size. I wear MedSH. Also, my wife wears petite sizes and would be a fan as well if the petite sizes are available.
