Handsome Jacket - needs styling updates -
By: TexasRailroader from Arlington, TX
Purchased the jacket in Peat - rich dark chocolate - in a large and it fits well. I like that the length is a bit longer than a true WWII bomber jacket. Styling is simple and not overworked. Handsome interior fabric and easy on/off lining in the sleeves. I very much appreciated the thoughtful shipping: it is virtually impossible to pack and ship suede without wrinkling the leather. The jacket was folded only once and comes with its own garment bag and hanger, a very nice touch. CONS: my complaints are the same as other reviewers. The jacket has a history of a finicky zipper and mine is no different. Can be difficult to zip/unzip. The rib knit fabric is very attractive but is a bit too loose, especially around the waist. My concern is that over time it will loosen even more and will hang loosely instead of being nicely bunched around the waist/hip area. Orvis has a generous return policy so I will keep the jacket and hope that the rib knit waist area doesn't stretch out too far.
suede jacket -

I wish it had better pocket openings for warming my hands, other than that, its a fine jacket, great suede at a great price. And it was packaged so nicely when shipped, a nice little surprise!
nice, but a disappointment -
By: howakahau from Chelsea, MI
My own fault for too much anticipation. This coat in the cognac color (phased out?!?) had caught my eye for a long time. Trying on the XL felt great and since I have a x-swimmer build - good shoulder room. The negatives include the useless pocket flaps as I am a "hands in the jacket pockets for comfort" guy and the hem and sleeves lack a reassuring elastic strength. So nice coat but a bit of a let-down.
Always wanted one! -

My recent purchase (suede bomber jacket) arrived and to my delight everything about it is great. I initially ordered the lighter tan color, but my girlfriend suggested the darker color might be more versatile and serviceable. I think she is right. I really like the dark color and the quality and feel of the suede is luxurious. In addition the jacket is a perfect fit in every way. Sleeve length is perfect and the chest and arm holes are comfortable. I'm a pretty big guy with a thick chest and big arms which has been problematic with some manufacturers' jackets...not Orvis. I've wanted a nice suede jacket for years. I'm glad to have discovered this one.
Doesn't fit many people -

I'm 42in at the shoulders. The medium (40in) was too small, and the large (44in) was much too big. As this is such a popular jacket for Orvis, you'd think that they would have more sizes, like the popular Barbour lines. Unfortunately, they have not done this yet and buyers like me have to buy a similar jacket elsewhere.
My First Time -
By: Speake from Toronto, ON
This is the first product I have bought from Orvis after been a lurker for a decade. When I placed my order and received the shipping notice I saw that the size I ordered was a medium. I haven't been a medium since I was 12 so I was puzzled how I could have ordered one. (It may have been my mistake, but I blame the Interweb.) Anyway, I emailed customer service that night and got a response within 30 minutes. The rep provided a solution and the problem was fixed in minutes. I reordered the right size and it arrived on time—return shipping for the wrong size was prepaid. Since then, I have worn it almost every day. It is well-made and perfectly proportioned. The feel of the suede is kitten-soft (I checked), the pockets are solidly stitched, and the garment bag that was included was a nice touch. And after my first full Orvis experience, I can say that the quality of its customer service department matches that of the jacket: top notch. The only problem I have is what to buy next.
This jacket makes me feel good -
As soon as I put this suede jacket on I felt like I had owned it forever. Now after a few weeks I can say It continues to look and feel great. it is soft as butter and prompts complements.

This is a nice casual light weight jacket that is perfect for Spring/Fall Mtn living and cool nights. I ordered Large Peat and the color and size was a perfect match.Looks very good with jeans. Like it !
One of my best buys -
By: Oysti from Norway
I got the tan one. Cool enough for parties and clubs/pubs, tough enough for camping, construction and outdoors in the summer. Goes good with dark blue and burgundy red knitwear/polos. Took me 14 days to get it to a small town in Norway from i ordered it. Very happy with the product, and have gotten good feedback from it.
Wonderfully done Orvis -
By: JohnnymacII from Denver, CO
Sizing is perfect, wears well with a sweater and shirt underneath. Sleeve length is right for me. The quality is superburb. Oh the delivery timely and I wore it on a date the day I received.
