My review of the Vanson Stadium style. I have owned this jacket for a while now, however it hasn't seen much wear yet, maybe a few weeks. I recently picked it up again and remembered I had wanted to review it here, because first, I think it is a great bargain of a jacket despite a few things I dislike (later more about that) and second, when I researched it before buying it, I couldn't find anything about it, no pictures at all. So maybe this here will help a future buyer. General: It is a short jacket, roughly 24" length in a size 40 and it rolls up at the back as most knit bottom jackets do when new, so it's real short. I am 5'9" and I wouldn't want it any shorter. It has 2 handwarmer pockets, two wallet pockets inside and raglan sleeves. It is a very relaxed, "bomber"-style fit. In the fit pictures you will see it fits me very baggy and it is a size 40 while I have a 40" chest and 180 pounds on me. So I am not exactly the most skinny 40" person and it's still baggy. What I like about the jacket: -the competition weight cowhide; it promises to break in beautifully, just look at the close up of the grain at the collar which i took. http://s722.photobucket.com/user/jacketjunkie/media/Vanson%20Stadium/IMG_1882_zps1mgp092q.jpg.html][/URL] -the thought-through positioning of the pockets; the outer handwarmer pockets are at the perfect height to be comfortable to use (something which many manufacturers mess up terribly) and the internal pockets are at the right height too. Not at chest height, but much lower, so you can grab into them comfortably. Also, they are very wide, so you have no difficulties getting your sausage fingers in there when trying to grab your wallet or phone. Again, I point this out, because I have made different experiences with most other big players represented and liked here. It's a minor detail but this pocket positioning is actually the reason why I pick this one over my Aeros and even Johnsons when I am in a hurry and want a comfortably usable casual jacket. The one thing that slightly bother me with the jacket: -the sleeves are long and I mean, real long. I actually consider having them shortened by an inch. Summary: For less than 500 USD it is a real bargain if you like short jackets and if you like baggy jackets. If you want a tight fit, you have to size down. Also, it helps to have arms the length of a gorilla to achieve the best off the rack fit. Because I am fairly sure the jacket was modeled on a bodybuilding gorilla. Fit pictures: The back shot is with the jacket opened, it doesn't look as messy when it's zipped up. Generally, I didn't try to pull and put this jacket in the perfect position and look for the pics. I couldve pulled up the sleeves a bit by repeatedly wrinkling my elbows and I could've pulled it straight down in the back but I didn't. This is how the jacket fits if you put it on completly un-selfaware and careless. I included a pic with raised arms to show off the great mobility you have in this jacket. The shoulders and collar don't move up at all, it's very well designed. http://s722.photobucket.com/user/jacketjunkie/media/Vanson%20Stadium/IMG_1871_zpsp42agath.jpg.html][/URL] http://s722.photobucket.com/user/jacketjunkie/media/Vanson%20Stadium/IMG_1874_zpsfbgyjv6p.jpg.html][/URL] http://s722.photobucket.com/user/jacketjunkie/media/Vanson%20Stadium/IMG_1872_zpshkba3kwj.jpg.html][/URL] http://s722.photobucket.com/user/jacketjunkie/media/Vanson%20Stadium/IMG_1876_zpsrjz9kan8.jpg.html][/URL] http://s722.photobucket.com/user/jacketjunkie/media/Vanson%20Stadium/IMG_1878_zpsk4vgw9qt.jpg.html][/URL] Hope it helps someone for future purchases. As I said, great bang for the buck and nice utility jacket.
