    Now I have already posted same/similar questions in the "What jackets have you got coming" thread so apologies if that irks anyone ! Same seller photos in both that thread and this.

    This was an "impulse" ebay buy this afternoon, out of Jackson Wyoming ( cowboy country methinks !). Coming to Perth Western Australia.

    Listed as this "Genuine leather Insulated Jacket Size 44" it was ( I think) a screaming bargain and could not resist. I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE "FINISHED"...

    "Cordovan"/ "Oxblood" in colour. Olive padded lining. No manufacturer's name tag.

    It does look very similar to my brown Fidelity that came via the forum out of the UK , and that had been declared by "those in the know" to be a Fidelity by the Talon zippers etc.

    Main obvious difference this one has the "side zippers" at the waist level I presume to make it easier to sit on a motorcycle whilst zipped up on the main (one way) zipper.

    SAME photos

    I agree with you...Fidelity. For reasons mentioned in your other post. The stitch pattern in the lining is theirs too. Nice jacket. Fidelity (and Lesco) made cool brown and burgundy jackets that are inexpensive today.

    Thanks JMax mate it was indeed "inexpensive" and will be under $100 AUD delivered via "global shipping" to Australia.

    Once it gets here, if needed it will get the cool water Eucalyptus woolwash on "gentle" then the "Full Monty" RM Williams.

    Yep, Jackson/Jackson Hole, WY is in the heart of cowboy country. Your jacket will be right at home in Western Australia.

    Did any other makers use that type of “locker loop” chain I see in yours and on eBay ?
