Quality Manifested -
By: NOTW from Texas
When my two daughters asked me what I wanted for my birthday my first response was this jacket. Mind you, I had read the mixed reviews. Most notably the ones regarding the supposed lack of substance regarding the zipper, so I decided to take a chance. After all, if the zipper or any other issue was not to my liking, I would simply return it. Am I glad I took the risk! This jacket exudes quality. It's weight is significant, and easily twice as heavy as the leather jacket it is replacing. The feel, the construction, all make the price well worth it. The fit? I am 6 ft. tall, and weigh 185lbs. My waist size is 34. This jacket is "slightly" larger around the waist than I would have preferred, but I still do not feel like being in a tent. The fit, I would say, is true to size. My previous leather jacket, not an Orvis product, was still going strong after 15 years. This one, with the much higher quality Bison Leather, will probably outlive me. A quality heirloom that I will in all likelihood pass down to my Grandchildren. So, do I recommend this product? A wholehearted and resounding YES! Please, if you are considering this product do yourself a favor and order it. It's that good.

Bison Leather Jacket -
I replaced my 30 year old lambskin jacket with the Coronado American Bison jacket I'am sure that I will get the same amount of use from this one. the fit is great, and my son will get another great jacket in 30 years.
Outstanding jacket -
By: jduane from Peoria, IL
LOVE this jacket. Everything you would expect from Orvis - very good quality. After reading the reviews I had some reservations given the cost. This jacket fits well and is true to size. I am 6' 1" and 210 pounds - the 42 was a little snug across the shoulders/back so I returned it for a 44 that fits perfectly. The return process worked flawlessly and service people were excellent. The reports about zipper, collar an styling issues stood out in other reviews. These issues were not a problem for me - the zipper is just fine, the collar is no problem, it is not 'boxy'. This 'bad boy' will be perfect for riding the old motorcycle when I haul it out in the spring. Ive also worn it to church and to business functions - in short…everywhere you go. I love the styling and weight of the jacket. I am wearing this 'beauty' everywhere I go with a smile on my face - it is now my new favorite.
High Qaulity Leather Coat -
By: MCK40 from Northern Virginia
I read all of the reviews before making this purchase and I had very high hopes for this coat in spite of some of its short comings. Like others have noted, it is very high quality leather and I can see me wearing it for many decades to come. I have no doubts that it will look better and better over the years as it develops a nice patina. I will say though that I was surprised at just how heavy the coat is. I don't say that as a good or bad quality, I was just not expecting it as my old leather coat was much lighter. For the first week I had the coat I was still not completely sold on it. the coat is very "boxy" as others have pointed out and I thought it fit a bit "snug", especially compared to my old coat. However, as I have worn it more and more and started to slowly break it in, it is getting better. As far as all of the comments regarding the zipper go, I don't consider it to be inferior or cheap, but it is a little cumbersome and awkward trying to get zipped up. I have just used the buttons and they have worked just fine. I also love the tartan linking the four inside pockets. The bottom line for me is that the coat is very warm and looks great and I have not doubts that once I have it completely broken in, I will consider the best coat I have every owned!
Great Quality Leather Jacket -
By: davidLeikam from Palo Alto, CA
I've been wanting a good leather jacket for years but not your run of the mill motorcycle or other jacket style. I have been wearing Orvis for awhile so when I saw this jacket, I was excited though a bit expensive for my planned budget so after a few months I decided to make the investment. Great, unique grain, and heavy duty though the zipper could of been a little more. This is the best leather jacket I've worn with a great fit and three medium sized breast pockets.

Choice Jacket that will Last 4-Ever -
By: RobTheKayaker from Chicago, Illinois
This Bison jacket is one of the finest leather jackets I have ever seen. The bison is soft yet robust and you know as soon as you try it on that it is an heirloom product that will last for fifty to a hundred years. I found that the 48 size was just a tad too small and all but cried when I had to send it back. There's something about bison that is iconic and a "had to have" item; sadly there is no size 50. For all you who can fit in it, consider yourself lucky!

I was not sure about this jacket from the beginning. Having difficulty of finding a suitable alternative I decided to order it; even paid for the quick delivery. First, about good things: very nice brown color of good quality leather. But, as some other reviews pointed it out, the collar was not most comfortable and the zipper indeed, flimsy. And on addition, the snap button fell off after only few days of wear ("conveniently" they provided "extra buttons" , so I hope, it will be fixed for now. At this point I don't have too much confidence in this jacket
Very large!!! -
I found this to be very large around the middle. From the chest up & the arms I loved it, but then it just went straight down or maybe even out from the chest down. I literally swam in it. I ordered the 40 hoping, (I usually wear a 40 or 42 depending on the cut) and I easily wear 32" waist. I think that this was cut for someone with a LOT more midsection than me. Sent it back within hours of receipt.
