This jacket is without any doubt the best I've ever seen from Schott - Better than mostly anything else I've had, for that matter. Heavy black Italian horsehide. Vanson grade hide. Really tough and weatherproof. Best pattern on the market. Hourglass shaped, very trim fitting. Nothing Schott ever did or does is nearly as trim fitting and tapered. Long sleeves, shoulder gussets, two chest and one inside pockets, super heavy YKK main zipper, etc., etc. So, if you're interested, let me know. If not, that's fine, too.
