I'm really impressed. After reading the other reviews I was a little worried about what size to order. I went by the instruction and it fit's fine. The only issue I had was a very light spew after the first cold ride. (That's a wax like white buildup on the leather). A quick cleanup and some leather treatment and everything is great. I used mink oil, but I'm a litte ofd school.

I didn't realize the jacket was textured leather, but it was fine except for one minor spot in the leather. I had to order an X-LG because the LGE were sold out. I am glad that I did, the jacket was not too big. I'm 5' 6" 180lbs. Overall I am happy with the coat and the price was really good as well.
I was pleased with the fit of the jacket, but it is very stiff leather. I'm working leather oils on it to try to soften it up some. Nice looking jacket.
i received this jacket yesterday and upon opening it it seemed to be a very well made heavy duty jacket. But last night i was wearing it around the house a little bit to break it in, when i noticed one of the inside pockets had a hole inside it, i figured i'd stitch it up myself no big deal. But then just a little while later i noticed the belt hitting my led and realized one of the belt loops had fallen apart at the stitching. I figure i'll try to fix it myself being it's not worth the pain to send it back and i'd hate to get rid of it overall seems like a great jacket i just think there could be a little more quality control. Thank You Chris.
I couldn't resist the $90 price with free shipping for a classic motorcycle jacket. While I found the quality of leather and construction to be a bit lacking when compared to the jacket I already owned (which cost about $50 more), all things considered, it's a pretty good buy.
I'm 6'1", 180 lbs, I ordered the large. It fits great. My previous jacket I bought oversize for layering in cold weather. I wanted a new one for a closer fit in warm weather. The removable liner and multiple zippered vents are a plus. I didn't like the belt so I cut the belt loops off. The heavy leather makes me feel protected, but it's not so stiff that I can't move freely. I recommend this product.
I received my new Jacket quicker than I had anticipated. It's durability and thickness were quite impressive. I had to wear it around the house for a couple of days to break it in a little. This Spring has been a little out of the norm for Central Virginia, so I've had the opportunity to wear it with the Liner In and the Liner out. The vents are a great added feature that will hopefully allow me to wear it during the summer months too. Again I have to say that this Jacket is the best buy out there!!!!
Great jacket, well worth the money.The belt is a little thin and cheap but still works great. Overall cant believe this jacket is under $100. removable belt, Big Vents, Very thick and heavy very warm & comes with a nice removable thermal insulated liner. Sizing chart is accurate. follow the chart and you'll be fine. some reviews say order a size up I would not recommend that my jacket fits great.
Received this great jacket in great time. Fit was perfect. will buy from Jafrum again!
Considering this is my first leather jacket, I'm very happy with it. I always told myself to get 1 w/armor in it. Though I got this 1 and again I'm happy with it. People ask me does it keep you really warm, when you go to work at 4am? YES It Does! Also it's got good weight to it to. The vents on the front really helps. I just wish the were 2 more pockets on the jacket. Other than that if you want a great leather jacket this is a good for thr your money!
The MJ403-leather jacket is made of a thick grade leather and appears to be well made. It was a little big for me, but I am between sizes. Good jacket for the money.
This is a really solid jacket. Super thick leather I couldnt believe how much thicker and heavier it was than my old jacket. It says Buffalo on the tag of the jacket. Not sure if its Buffalo leather or not. The air vents are nice to have since I live in Florida, and I intend to ride with this jacket all year around. I dont like riding without something protecting me. The zippers are nice and solid metal. The only flaw I can see is that in the description of the jacket on this page it says there is removable CE aproved armor. Well, there is no armor in my jacket, and after inspecting the jacket there is no place to even put armor, so I think that is an error on the description. Theres no way im sending this back now though I love it. I also got Skidmores water repelent wax which made the jacket more supple. Hard to beat for this price.
This jacket is a good deal for the money. Seems to be well made. The fit is a bit tight though. I was reluctant to order an XL but glad I did. The arm length is perfect but tight if I wear something heavy underneath. The lining is a nuisance when trying to put the jacket on and is very thin. Probably best just to leave it out.
Bought this for my husband for Christmas. Went up on a size after reading the reviews but the coat is straight cut and is just as large on the bottom as it is on top. The coat is stiff, heavy, and the mesh liner is flimsy. Bought it for the vents which are pretty large. The only problem I have is that the leather is textured not smooth and the color is grey-white, NOT black. It's as if the leather is moldy. I tried some leather conditioner I bought at the store. It darkens the coat for a short time but the white comes back.
Very heavy leather jacket, looks better than the picture. Leather is stiff but will soften over time. Bought one size up and it just fits. Sleeve's a little too long but should work out perfectly when riding.
Alright, for anyone looking to get the skinny on this jacket, here we go: This baby is thick, heavy and tough. That leather is quality - good stuff. The zippers are hardcore, YKK, at can take a beating. The togs on them are really good, but it feels like the one on the main zipper might give soon, you know, the one that's used the most. Detachable belt, really nice, roomy loops to slide your own belt in. The lining is really nice, and one thing they don't mention is that it has snaps inside the forearms to keep it in. Now, those vents, man. They are the reason I bought this jacket, and I am glad I did so. With the shoulder vents down and the back open, and the wind blowing through, it is cool and breezy. Careful though. When I got this jacket, it does not come with any CE armor or foam padding in the back. As a matter of fact, there's no where to put any, either. Also, the forearms, when zipped, can be a little tight, so possibly order up a size.
First i must say Jafrum is one of the best online companies I've ever done business with. Customer service, quite excellent. Shipping, very fast. Products, outstanding. Leaving me very satisfied. The leather jacket is remarkable. I bought it for my son, even though it will be lil big right now the medium is small enough to keep him warm & protected. I really like this jacket, leather is thick, zippers are very heavy duty all around. The side straps including the leather strings are very good quality. I inspected the entire jacket. The only thing i found that could be a future problem would be the belt eyelets, but if not yanked on or abused they would be ok. Im going to get one for me. After writing this review i have sold myself one. With this price & quality product ,customer wins.. Thanks Jafrum, my son will enjoy his birthday gift!
Great solid jacket. I did the measurements like they said to and followed the chart. My jacket fits as described. My only complaint is that there is no armor as described. There isn't even any place to put the armor.
I was very pleased with price of this jacket. My last jacket (from another vendor) lasted 22 years before I had to replace it. I wanted this one for the vents and removable liner. 1) The liner is nice and kept me warm in 38 degree weather. 2) The leather is quite thick but broke in pretty well after a couple weeks of wearing it. 3) The zippers are true YKK and the snaps are all good. There are two things I count against it though: 1) The sleeves are a bit long. Bought a size up as everyone says and it fits in most places, but the sleeves are long. Even the smallest size would have been a bit too long and I have a 6' wingspan. This did work out for me in a way though. With my arms down it is a bit uncomfortable, but with my arms up on the bars, the length is right in my gloves and keeps any air space covered. No expose at all. 2) The belt has some cheesy rivets in it where the buckle goes through. They are just cheap. If they had backing washers I would have thought better of them, but these are just junk and I will be replacing them. The mesh liner is OK but I can not say it will hold up. Also, the snaps in the sleeves are attached to the mesh, so don't be surprised if you have to do some sewing in the future to fix that design flaw.
The MJ403 is made of premium leather and designed for the rider who values protection and wears their leathers well into the warmer weather months. Ventilation can be found all over the jacket. There are extra-long zippered vents on the chest, grommeted holes in the under arms, and a full width zippered vent across the back. The 403 is available in black with polished silver hardware, and in sizes large thru 5XL. The sizing chart on the listing is accurate, and will help you establish fitment. Just make sure to take in to account any heavy layers you may want to wear beneath your jacket when you take your measurements.
The main closure has a heavy duty YKK zipper with snap down lapels that can be unfastened to allow the jacket to be zipped all the way up, and the shoulders feature these snap style epaulette holders.
Adjustability is found at the waist in the form of this removable leather belt, and at the cuffs, with these expandable zippered gussets for easy on and off. Above the belt you can see the zippered hand warmer pockets and the snap closed watch pocket with cover flap.
On the back of the 403, you can again see the waist belt and the expansion joints in the shoulders for increased mobility. If you lift up the bottom of the jacket, you will find the zippered connection for attaching a pair of riding pants to the jacket for a little extra protection.
Inside the jacket, you will find a removable, full sleeve, quilted thermal liner that is flanked on either side by a snap closed pocket.
