This is a great buy at the DK price. I have a similar style leather vest from Harley-Davidson....paid about $100 for it. The Milwaukee vest is the best quality vest I've seen. I bought one for my dad and brother. I will be ordering one for myself soon.
The leather is great quality...not the cheap, grainy leather you will get on the other vests that are listed on the DK website.
The inner liner is a nice mesh material that breathes well.
The construction of the vest is the best part, obviously starting with good leather helps. The seams are well sewn. The snaps are made well and look as if they will last as long as the vest. The adjustments are in the right place and allow for room to size the vest to the individual. The pockets are also really well constructed which is a place most vests tend to skimp on.
I am 6'4" and 200 lbs. I'm in good shape (no beer gut) and the size L vest fit me perfectly. The adjustments should allow for a most builds.
Overall I am extremely pleased with this product and would recommend it over all the other vests you see on the website. You should be able to try on the "cheaper" vests at you local motorcycle shop. I found the cheap ones at all the shops I went too. You will see what I'm talking about when you try them on. I doubt you will find a quality vest like this when you go shopping in person. Get this one!
Ordered the large and it is a perfect fit. I am tall and thin and the vest fits the way it is supposed to fit. If you are waistline challenged then choose the next size up or you will be buying vest extensions. The quality is the best I have seen. And Dennis Kirk's price on this item was FAR better than any other seller. Shipping on this item is very reasonable. Another high quality item from DK!
My chest measures 46 I ordered the XL which according to the sizing chart is good for chest size up to 48". Got the vest and put it on, it is at least 3" too small at the chest! I am a little pissed that I have to pay return shipping because of the supplier's gross error. Also, the vest looked like it had been returned before at least once. no surprise.
All helmets and apparel are free returns. You are never charged for return shipping

Old School Real Vest! With a bonus feature
This is a heavy old school vest. If offers the best protection a OS 'vest' can offer. I like the feel of a real vest! It also holds a 1911 and 4 extra mags nice, if you do this I would add an extra X to your 'vest' size. I have to go 2 sizes up from my shirt size if I'm not concealed carrying and like stated above I go 3 sizes up if concealed carrying a full size pistol.
