Side-Zip Bomber Jacket

Side-Zip Bomber Jacket is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Bomb Bomber!!! I bought this bomber 2 weeks ago and have worn it at least 5+ times. Looks great with leggings, joggers, or jeans. I’ve worn it with cutie booties and sneakers. I bought mine to go well with fitted shirts and bought it in my regular size. It is a little cropped and I wear it with the zippers on the sides open. If you want to wear a little longer bomber, I would definitely size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This bomber jacket's the bomb! I'm in love with my new bomber jacket! Perfect to layover over a t-shirt and jeans or a flowy dress. I'm 5'8'' and about 135lbs and ordered a size small. I was worried the length of the sleeves would be too short for my arms but it's actually perfect. The color of the jacket matches the picture shown on here too. Overall I am very happy with my purchase :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Cute and adorable! I was really on the fence about this jacket. I am long torsoed and crop jackets generally look horrible on me. I took a chance and ordered the xs (usually I wear XS/S/2/26) and its great! Its surprisingly flattering and cute, and fits really nicely. it is slightly cropped on me but is cute over a button down top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I've been on the hunt for a cute bomber jacket for spring/fall. This one far exceeded my expectations! Chic details - I love the side zippers and the stretchy fabric on the sleeves, bottom and collar. Great fit - I'm 5'2" and the small hits right at my hips, where other jackets would normally be a bit too long. And can we talk about the color? It's a beautiful light green - much lighter than those popular field jackets. I wore it with black jeans and a white T and got so many compliments. Love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty green! The color green is quite beautiful- not an olive green but more light sage/celery. I ordered a small but may have preferred a medium. I am 5’8 128 and a little more length would’ve been nice. I was concerned a larger size would be too wide, so kept the small. Looks cute styled with the yellow gold whisper cotton tee and a Madewell bandana.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Bomb Bomber! Love this bomber. It's a cool color and I love the style. It does fit large and more in a cocoon shape than a slim fit. However, it is a good shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best silhouette ever I purchased the quilted bomber jacket from a few years ago, but haven't been able to wear it because it was too tight in the arms (my body imperfection, not a Madewell design flaw). So naturally I was so pumped to see a newer version in an updated fabric hit the scene. I snagged this one up instantly! The material is dreamy, the fit is true-to-size with the perfect amount of slouch, and the side zip detail allows me to wear a heavier sweater underneath or showoff a fun printed shirt. I adore this jacket and can't wait to live in it during the fall season!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transitional Jacket This bomber is lightweight perfect for the summer weather now and to transition into fall - I'll even wear it in winter with a hoodie layered underneath. I'm usually S, but took a XS in this jacket and still had room in the arms to layer. It's very sporty and goes with everything - dresses, jeans, and sweats. I LOVE the side slits and the overall look of this jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Jacket This jacket is high quality. I love the zippers on the sides. I usually wear a medium, occasionally a small, but the medium fit perfectly. I like the fabric--it is not shiny which I don't like. I will definitely get a lot of use out of this jacket in the fall. I already bought a light gray pair of sweatpants to wear with it as shown in the photo. With a white t-shirt this will look so cute. I highly recommend this jacket. If you prefer your jackets looser and/or want to wear a really heavy sweater with this I might go up a size but for me the size was perfect.
