    Early 80's LL Bean goatskin bomber from the original owner who wore it for a couple seasons before putting it in storage. It's hard to find one in this condition regardless of price, but the starting bid is much more reasonable than the prices I've seen lately for the Made In USA LL Bean jackets.
    Seller notes a 21" p2p but that's only from one seam to another, it's probably more like 23 or 24 inches.

    Unfortunately has a couple issues, but this is a pretty cool Appalachian bomber for less than $100. Seller sent an offer for just over $50 so they're definitely looking to sell.

    $215 is an excellent price for this jacket. This being a "pre 2000" jacket has true "old school" Vanson Competition weight leather, which softens up very nicely when worn, and after broken in (as this jacket appears to be) is truly a unique experience to wear. Sure, the jacket itself is a SportRider model (Mark II Cobra) so it is purposely cut for riding on a motorcycle (short torso, longer back.) It's not perhaps one you'll feel comfortable with off a bike. I own one, and really like it. Look for the lining that this has (a cotton-drill type of lining) and no mid-zips in the sleeves to confirm it's a Pre 2000 model.
