Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect staple leather jacket Leather is good quality, softens with wear. Size up if you want to wear sweaters underneath. Best investment ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What You've Heard Is True This jacket has nothing but excellent reviews and I have to say - they're well deserved. I ordered it online and as soon as I picked it up out of the box, still wrapped in tissue paper, I was delighted by the heaviness of it. This jacket is serious. As I unveiled it from its tissue paper, the perfume of leather filled the room, and as my fingers grazed across the front lapel, the sensation on my skin was soft and buttery. I threw it on immediately and felt like I could die in all of its perfect-ness. The jacket held me snugly - not too tightly, but not too loosely - and its thickness made me feel like I could brave a storm in the Antarctic. Buy. This. Jacket. Save up your money, steal from your Grandma, use your financial aid - whatever you have to do. It will be worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING: Better than the Washed Leather Jacket! I was contemplating the Washed Leather Jacket online and decided to go in store to try it on. However, I wasn't blown away by it and decided to try on the Ultimate Leather Jacket as well. I was a little scared of the belt as I initially thought it didn't look as clean, but it looks amazing on, both zipped and unzipped! The Ultimate is a little longer than the Washed and is heavier and more structured, all of which makes more of a statement! It's a beautiful piece and worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate compared to Washed Leather jacket When I received this jacket and put it on, initial impressions were: Heavy and Thick (in a good way) Fabulous quality Hit at the top of my hip I got a M and an 5'4'' 120 lbs. I wanted to wear sweaters underneath and I heard this will stretch with wear. Not too snug. I can tell it will loosen up though. I was on the fence though because I had tried on the Washed Leather Jacket in the store and loved it. So I took back the ultimate to compare both jackets. I tried on the M again in the washed leather version and my impressions were: This was a lot lighter in weight compared to the ultimate. Could be worn for spring/summer whereas the ultimate is for fall/winter. The leather is suppper soft! Loved it! Already broken in and weathered looking. No belt. I settled on keeping the Ultimate! I wanted a heavier leather jacket in a classic silhouette with the belt.It's an amazing jacket though. Dont let the price scare you! You will never buy another leather jacket again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best leather jacket I looked, no joke, for nearly 5 years for a perfect leather jacket. Across different counties and different styles. This is by far, the beat leather jacket I've seen and tried on. The sizing is spot on, the leather amazing quality and the price point is amazing for the quality and fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality jacket I ordered this jacket months ago and waited because it was back ordered. Worth the wait! I bought the jacket in a large because other reviews stated that it ran small. I'm generally a medium. The large ended up being way too big, both in the length of the sleeves and in the general fit. I exchanged for a medium. It's a little tight when zipped up, especially in my bust, but it looks far more polished and sleek. This jacket is heavy and I think looks way better than the other leather jacket Madewell offers. I find the belt a bit cumbersome so I took it off and it still looks gorgeous. Buy this jacket if you're looking for a high quality statement piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please bring this back! Bring back this jacket in black! It's better than any other Moto jacket Madewell has released... I'm ready for another but it's always tauntingly sold out. BRING IT BACK!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate really does mean ultimate, in this case! A great investment piece. Amazing quality! I'm 5'3, 105 lbs with narrow shoulders—a petite frame overall. I ordered XS but ended up exchanging it for a Small at the store. I'm an XS/0 in tops and a 24 in Madewell jeans. The XS fit a little too perfectly, albeit a bit small. I could move my arms freely when the jacket was unzipped; not as easily when zipped. It worked with just a t-shirt on. With a lightweight sweater, it was a very close fit. The reason why I went with a Small: a more comfortable, much cooler, effortless, throw-on-and-go vibe. When I think of a motorcycle jacket, I want one I can just casually throw on and not shimmy into. The leather will soften over time/mold to your body, but since it's lined in non-stretch fabric, I don't think it will stretch out too much. The leather on each jacket varies a bit (from very smooth and stiffer to slightly textured and softer). The jangle-y sound the belt makes and the length aren't bothersome at all. Will wear it for years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Jacket I have been on the hunt for a great, everyday leather biker jacket - specifically belted - but didn't want to spend a grand like most cost. I fell in love with this when I saw it and the price was definitely more reasonable than most; although still an investment. I ordered the small after reading the reviews - I'm 5'5, 115 lbs, 34B, 26 waist. I immediately doubted my decision because the sleeves were quite long and the fit was more boxy than I wanted. I went to the store and they happened to have an xs. The xs felt a little snug in the arms but looked much better all around so I ended up exchanging. I'm SO glad I did. After wearing just once, the jacket already feels like it is breaking in and fitting perfect. The quality is amazing and I like the simplicity-not too many snaps or hardware-so I feel like this will be a timeless piece for seasons to come. HIGHLY recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The jacket you've been looking for I've been keeping an eye out for a quality, stylish motorcycle jacket for a few years now. I'm so thankful I found this one. It is very heavy, thick leather and feels solid. It seems to be made very well. I'm 5'8" and 125lbs. and originally ordered a small. I wear a small in everything I don't want to be oversized. I put it on and immediately doubted my size choice. I ended up exchanging the small for a medium which was really only slightly bigger and did not result in the jacket looking oversized at all. Would highly recommend but would suggest you size up unless your normal size sometimes runs big. This jacket is a keeper!
