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). Please call us at 800-766-4165 or 276-773-3131 if you would like to order a Closeout style in a size not available to order online.

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.

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.

My wife just bought me the buffalo nickel braided vest. That thing is incredible. The leather is everything the rest of the reviews say it is. The vest looks just like it did in the pictures. Thanks Fox Creek you now have a lifetime customer.

I bought this vest for my husband. When he open the box, he was so surprised at the weight, the softness, the look, and the fit. It was perfect. Now, I think I will buy myself one.

I’m really impressed with my new Buffalo Nickel Braided Vest – looks, feels, sounds and smells the part x 100%.
Took it to my local stitcher to have some club patches sewn on and she was very complimentary and took extra care with her work saying that she felt a bit intimidated by the superb quality and weight of the leather.
This really has the feel of a heritage piece that I’ll be handing off when I’m past it myself!

Fits very well over my leather jacket (essential over here in Northern Ireland), but equally comfortable over a shirt when indoors. Built in holster will not be used for its intended purpose, but is ideal for odds and ends that I like to keep to hand when riding.
Shipped really quickly to UK, and the laced sides will give a really tailor made fit.
I’ll certainly be recommending your service to my brothers (but wearing it around will probably advertise it well enough!)
Will be doing business with you again – but will never need a replacement for my vest!
Best wishes, Rev Gary D Millar – Northern Ireland.

We live in a fairly small, rural town in Northern Arizona. After my husband bought his first Harley - an 06 Ultra Classic, we set about to outfit him in requisite leathers. I already had leathers from a previous lifetime of riding, so I had good stuff and knew the difference between good and junk. There was NOTHING at the local dealership (just high priced crap)nor at the other bike stores around. We were going to have to drive to Phoenix (a 200+ mile roundtrip) just to find some other stores to shop. I stumbled upon the Fox Creek website, read the reviews and descriptions and it looked great, so took a flyer and ordered a men\'s classic jacket, buffalo nickel vest, chaps, and 2 pairs of gloves. When the box arrived I laughed at the packing box (meat and pork products) but got serious when I opened it up and found GORGEOUS leather products! Heavy! Soft! Excellent zippers and hardware! Stylish! I mean, first class, high quality, beautiful!! When my husband tried on the chaps - they were a perfect fit. No cutting necessary, no sagging, no bagging - just a perfect fit. He loved the Buffalo nickels on the vest - too cool! The jacket was everything I wanted him to be wearing and more. We could not be more pleased in your products - from the leather to the fit, to the incredibly LOW prices, we are thrilled and will definitely be spreading the word around town where to buy the best - Fox Creek Leathers. Thanks a bunch!!
This is a very well made vest that I feel is a bargain

I called and placed my order on a Monday, the vest arrived to me at work on Thursday.
It is exactly like the picture on-line. As soon as I opened the box, I was
impressed with the look of the leather. As I took it out of the box, I noticed the
weight, this is heavy leather. I began to examine the seams and they are all neat.
The inside pocket is finished with leather. This is a very well made vest that I
feel is a bargain. I love this vest so much, I may order a jacket next!
Thank you for showing your quality products on-line!
The Best Leather Vest. Ever!

I ordered the Braided Buffalo Nickel Vest and was delighted to be opening the package just 3 days later! The grain of the leather, the fit and the overall look is simply fantastic! I rarely go overboard praising a product (that's because quality is becoming extinct) but Fox Creek Leather have created a product that has won my admiration. My friend saw it as I got it out of the package and was asking me how much it cost and I have a feeling he has already visited the website! I will be recommending all my friends to choose Fox Creek Leather products. I am keenly considering ordering a Motorcycle Jacket once I choose the style.
