    Hello guys

    Can someone please tell me how rare this jacket is?

    I live in New Zealand where leather jackets are not in high demand so from time to time you can have a real bargain. I recently bought a Vanson raid in 42R made of 1.6mm cowhide. Almost brand new condition. The price was $175NZD which is around $130 USD. Just could not miss this opportunity.

    Thanks

    You got a great deal. Less than half what it was new.

    I thought Vanson replaced this model with the Arrow (Thurston bros Gambler). There are some differences between the Raid and Arrow, mainly the back config. I’ve had both and both were nice. Very nice jacket you have there and for that price it’s essentially free.

    Thanks for your replies guys

    NZ is a pretty good country, if you love leather. Last year I bought two Aero highwayman jackets in HH and steerhide. 100$ USD each.

    I got a Vanson Raid too. It's basically the Vanson Arrow jacket but made from Vanson's heavy competition hide and with a one piece back. I like it a lot, quite a good "do it all" jacket.

    You got a great deal, congrats!
