Absolutely great. The leather is truly 100% real (I was surprised but very pleased). I got the medium and it's a little big, but far from too long or loose; the armpit opening's a little too big for me. I'll wear something puffy under there. Overall though, it's a great piece of work, durable, and comfortable to wear. I'd recommend this to anyone.
ALSO - the leather straps doesn't give me any problems. I believe they added new anchors that hold them down?

This jerkin is absolutely beautiful. When I opened the package, the strong smell of leather assaulted my nostrils. I can't say enough about this jerkin. It is well made, with a satin interior. It would go well with many different period costumes. The only drawback is the straps. They should have placed a loop on the jerkin to thread the excess straps through. I know Brian said that the brass trim has enough room to thread the excess through, but my jerkin doesn't. However, I just loop the excess strap length over/under itself just past the buckle and it is fine. If you are on the fence considering buying this jerkin, you should just order it before they stop making it. It is well worth the price. You will not be disappointed.

I love it, its a lot more comfortable then I originally thought it would be. my only issue with it is there isn't an effective way to keep the belt straps laying flat. otherwise amazing piece and very comfortable
