I received the vest and couldn't be happier with the quality and craftsmanship. I have a 43.75" chest and a 32" waist and ordered a XL based on the recommendations of reviewers and the video. The vest fit great while standing so I ripped off the tags and took it out for a spin while wearing a t-shirt. While seated on the bike the vest bunches up and feels very baggy. Keep in mind I ordered a size up to go over a leather jacket. I would like to have seen how a L fit. I might have to get a "summer vest" in large. This is my first vest purchase and am happy overall with the Jafrum team and products.

This vest is perfect. Size is right on. The leather is of excellent quality. I would definitely recommend this vest to anyone. If you look around you will NOT find a better vest, especially not for less than $100.
This is a very nice vest! Excellent quality and fit. I am certain that I could not have found a better vest for the same price that I paid. I have a 42 inch chest and I ordered a large. It fits great and I have room to put my coat on underneath this vest. and I have enough room to button the vest up. I would highly recommend this vest.
The fit and finish is really good. Great quality stitching and leather is thick but soft. I'm a 41 chest and got the large. Fits perfect. My only complaint is they used two different grains of leather. The two front panels have a rough texture while the rest of the jacket is smooth. Didn't feel like going through the hassle of returning it. Hope time will wear the vest evenly.
Once again another happy customer. I purchase all my bike relates stuff from Jafrum. Great prices and they quickest shipping you could ask for. The vest is great quality and a fraction of the price you woul pay anywhere else. It's thick leather but not uncomfortable. I'm 6'4" around 225lbs and I got a 2xl which fits perfectly. I can wear a sweatshirt or flannel underneath with no prob an it also fits with just a tshirt.
The vest is my favorite to wear, but the liner is too big and hangs outside the leather which can make it look cheap. When I called they said I could send it back but it would be a few weeks until i got my new vest. Not enough time to use it to patch in. Jafrum love the vest not the liner... top grade outside that.
Got my vest quick. it is an awesome quality and fits perfect. very soft right out of the box. highly recommended
The MV911VL motorcycle vest is one of the nicest value priced leather vests you'll find anywhere. The 911 is made of naked top grain cowhide leather, which is one of the highest grades of leather you can get. It's very soft, and the full aniline treatment of the leather keeps it breathable.
The 911VL comes in black, and in sizes small thru 4XL. The fit is very accurate per the size chart on the listing, so make sure you take into account any heavy layers you may want to wear underneath the vest by going up a size.
The main closure on the 911 is a hidden snap style with a mandarin collar. The snap style closure lends itself to the use of vest extenders, for a very versatile fit.
You may recognize the style of this vest from a very popular t.v. series involving a certain California Motorcycle Club. It has two snap style breast pockets that are perfect for lining up your nickname and rank patches, and the left one has a slit for carrying your riding glasses when you're off the bike. There are also snap style hand warmer pockets for extra storage.
Inside the vest you will find two additional snap style pockets. Both are equipped with a stretchy band for securing a pistol. You can also see the nylon liner in the front panels of the vest and the polyester liner in the rear for added mobility and comfort.
The back of the vest is made of a single panel of leather with no encroaching stitching or panels, making it a perfect choice for clubs with bylaws that forbid any seams or panel edges behind their rocker patches.
