Just a quick review of a jacket i picked up in the classifieds last week. This is basically a toned down modern interpretation of the J-24 made by Vanson. I'm a sucker for a D-Pocket, and a big Vanson fan, the second i saw this i knew i had to have it. Left Field says this jacket uses Comp Weight leather, Vanson says it uses X150, i couldn't tell you who is right or wrong. The leather is indeed thinner than my other 3 Vansons, but it weighs the same as a Comp Weight jacket i own... This jacket is made from a denser leather than my other Vanson, it is thinner, but heavier proportionally. Either way, it is nice leather. It's not life changing by any means, but it has a nice weight, it molds to the body very well, it's a bit like a hybrid between CXL and Comp Weight to me. It has the rigid waxy/crunchy vibe of fresh CXL, but with the touch of a classic smooth leather. Construction is the best of all my 4 Vansons, i can't really spot anything dodgy. It's not as perfect as other brands, but there are no obvious flaws either. Fit is very good. It has the classic amazing Vanson range of motion whilst still being very fitted. These guys have really nailed the motorcycle riding position better than any other brand i have tried. The jacket is longer both in body and arms than a traditional Vanson, it works for the arms, as i usually find Vanson arms on the short side, but the body is IMO too long even for me at 6'2". They used a double way main zipper to try to fix the length issue, i would rather they had removed 1" from the body. I also really like having a Vanson with finished sleeves, ie stitched at the wrist end rather than just folded over like they do on their regular jackets. The thing that this jacket does best IMO is style. I think they really nailed the design cues, they got rid of the unnecessary things (belt loops, chest pocket, shoulder tabs...) kept the oldschool cool (the D pocket, top sleeve zippers and the big italianish style collar) and added a more modern streamlined back. They went "less is more", and did a great job. IMO this altogether gives this jacket a very badass look, it has an edge that a regular J-24 doesn't have. This is the first black leather jacket i have that makes me feel "Bad", I feel a bit like Negan wearing it... Here are the pics: And fit pics: Edit: i bought the jacket from @Captain Sensible , he was a pleasure to do business with.
