Once a size is sold out, we cannot offer it at the sale price but most styles can be ordered in your size at the regular price (delivery time up to 10 weeks).

The motorcycle vest also has an interior breast pocket on the right side and two 6" x 6" open exterior pockets. Please note that pocket depth may vary depending on the size.
The Men's Braided Buffalo Nickel Vest is made with laced sides that allow you to fit the motorcycle vest to your body, let it out to accommodate layering, or wear the vest over your motorcycle jacket. The workmanship is impeccable and this leather vest has a lifetime guarantee.

Quality through and through
Posted by Marlin Overton on Sep 17th 2015
Recently received my new vest from Fox Creek. After being amazed at the quality of previous purchases, I determined that I needed a new vest. When it arrived my confidence in getting a top quality product from Fox was reinforced 100%. The vest is top shelf. Quality components, constructed with craftsmanship second to none. Immediately I determined that I needed chaps as well. "Build your Own' chaps were ordered yesterday, and I have the reassurance that when they arrive I will be equally impressed. I have been riding for over 45 years, and have never seen better products from anyone. MADE IN AMERICA, with pride by craftsmen and women, who take pride in what they do. A refreshing change from the outsourced crap that is out there. Thank You, Fox Creek for living up to the elevated standard of USA made products. I salute you. Marlin in MT

My wife gave me the Buffalo Nickel Braided Vest. The quality of workmanship is outstanding. It has fit itself to me and is so comfortable that I often forget I'm wearing it, until I look down. I could not be more satisfied with it. Whatever the price is on this, IT'S A DEAL!!!
Another beautiful FCL product!

I already expected this Braided Buffalo Nickel Vest to be good because I previously purchased a leather jacket and gloves from Fox Creek Leather and was very pleased. My only "mistake" was that when I first got the vest it was a size too small and I had to return/exchange it up, no problem except I had to wait a bit to actually wear the "right" vest.
The vest itself is prime quality, HEAVY gauge leather (made extra great quality by the lining), and looks and feels exactly like it should have the lifetime guarantee it comes with. I like that "substantial" feeling in my leather goods, how else will they do the job of protecting besides just "looking good"? I am already planning a first ride with this vest, and will be 100% ready to recommend Fox Creek Leather to anyone who asks (as I am certain they will...), "Where did you get that great looking vest?"
I am really grateful I was introduced to Fox Creek Leather by the Riding Course instructor in a Major Motor Company store who guided me away from the products his own store was selling to Fox Creek Leather when I was looking for a pair of gloves, my first purchase.
Since then I have been back to Fox Creek Leather for all my leather needs. The Braided Buffalo Nickel Vest is just the latest, but will definitely not be my last purchase from Fox Creek Leather.
I am a now dedicated customer and will happily recommend them to anyone; word of mouth just as I found Fox Creek Leather. Oh, and did I mention the extremely consumer-friendly prices???
Good riding to all!
The Best I Have Owned

I wanted to let you know that, over the last 30+ years of riding motorcycles the Buffalo snap vest I received from Fox Creek is by far the best I have owned. It has the best feel and weight. Thank you for a superior USA made product. I wish I found your company years ago.
I will make Fox Creek my 1st choice for leather from now on.
Gear That Goes Everywhere I Go

Dear Friends at FOX CREEK,
I recently did a 4000 mile ride from Nashville to the Sea-of-Cortez in MEXICO. I traveled every mile in my FOX CREEK braided laced vest, chaps, & classic jacket. The trip included everything from Texas drought & torrential rain to desert heat in excess of 100. My faithful leathers never let my down. Here's a picture in the Sonoran Desert of Mexico at sunrise near the USA border. Thank you for making gear that goes everywhere I go!!

If you're thinking of purchasing a product from Fox Creek Leather, do not hesitate. I received my vest in 2 days from ordering it, when it arrived I noticed a minor flaw, called customer service and was told they would send me a replacement vest that day, and when i get a chance to send the other back. Who else does that? The customer service is top notch.
Now onto the vest, I have purchased leather jackets, chaps and other leather products from other companies. Fox Creek Leather is by far the best one yet. In one day I got more compliments and questions about this vest, than I ever did about other things I've worn.
If you want a great vest get it from Fox Creek Leather!

I bought this vest and I think it is made very well and is super comfortable. I ordered it in a smaller size originally and didn't like the fit so I called and requested a larger size. And they actually shipped me a larger one before I even returned the smaller size. It was kinda like the honor system. It really impressed me how they do business.
I will definitely be ordering many other goods with this Company. Again, very pleased with my purchase and the customer service was great!

The quality and features make the Braided Buffalo Nickel Vest everything you said it would be. I've been looking for months for quality leather goods made in the U.S.A. I've been spreading the word about Fox Creek Leather. A special thanks to your Customer Service and for your extremely quick delivery.

I was referred to Fox Creek Leather by a very satisfied customer on a bikers forum. I wanted something that stood out from all the typical cheap imported stuff and found it in this braided buffalo nickel vest.
Received it quickly and spent the next hour smelling it and scrutinizing all the quality workmanship. My wife had to tell me to take it off to come to bed that night.
A week later I wore it to the CO State H.O.G. Rally and had about a dozen people ask me where I got it. I had a patch sewn on, and the guy sewing said he's never seen such a good quality vest before. This is the nicest motorcycle accessory I own.
