This jacket appears to be well made. It is true to size. I wear a large shirt, large coats, etc, and this jacket fits nicely, plenty of room to move in, and the sleeves are long enough to stay inside my welding gloves in all positions. There is one inside pocket that is quite large. The snaps appear to be strong enough to last. If the jacket falls apart, i will post an update. I stick, MIG, and TIG weld. Lately been doing a lot of stick welding. The jack is also thick enough to protect from slag while stick welding. It weighs exactly 3 pounds (I weighed it with a very accurate scale). It has a liner on the inside that is only covering the shoulder/upper back area, otherwise there is no liner. The liner makes it easer to slide on and off.
P.S. Nothing against the people who live in China, just their communist government that enslaves those who differ politically. Had i known this jacket was made in China, i would not have purchased it! I will keep it, and be grateful...
dont use the snaps on the back. dont use the snaps on the cuffs. besides that you should be set. the leather is tough but not tear resistant on the edges. its a great light coat to use... it is a coat so it will be warm when you weld or cut but it will not burn you up... being how thin the leather is and the various vents for air. I am a men's small and the medium size coat meets my arms perfectly with 3 or so inches overhang over my belt line to boot. to keep them hot ones out. the collar is alright... but I like to wear an extra collared work shirt under the coat anyway...
I bought this Jacket for welding and I absolutely love it. In fact, I love it so much that I don't use it for welding, I'm wearing it for everyday use. I am very happy with the material. It is well sewed, fits perfectly to the size, and if you wear this jacket out in the cold or the wind, you can't feel the harsh weather against your skin. The Boarhide is the best Jacket I have ever purchased. I am so happy I made this purchase, I would highly recommend it to anyone.
