Quit Looking Elsewhere
Posted by The Hogster on Oct 8th 2008
I am serious, quit looking elsewhere for a quality leather vest. You won't find one of better quality at a better price. I did the research for you and you can not beat Fox Creek Leather. The Motor Company sells a nice vest but at almost twice the price. Motorcycle accessory stores...poor quality. I bought the Fox Creek Braided Buffalo Nickel Vest online, received it in a couple of days, and took it for a 1400 mile test ride through California. When I got home, I wiped off the bugs and it looks like it just came out of the box. The fit, the detail of construction, the lining, the quality of the leather...all first class. Very simply, you can't beat Fox Creek Leather, period, so quit looking.

I bought the vest and it was too small. I called and had NO PROBLEMS or misunderstandings on the phone "we'll just get you out a bigger size" That's it, I said, yep...This is a GREAT company to do business with. Before I could send the smaller vest back someone seen it and bought it from me. Service was so good I will be shopping here often.
And on the plus side, these items are "MADE IN THE U.S.A."
One VERY happy customer
Buffallo Braided Laced Vest
Posted by Dave A on Aug 3rd 2007
At long last!! I have found it `Fox Creek Leather` the Holy Grail in leather craft. It`s only taken me three score years plus two and the recent acquaintance with the Internet to finally find what I`m looking for.
After visiting a few sites I tried `Fox Creek` and straight-away I new I was in the right place. Your website is very refreshing and what attracted me most was the fact you can zoom in and inspect the detail and workmanship of the product. There is also a wealth of information on the manufacturing process as well as care and maintenance which is important.
It did not take me long to make up my mind. I fired off an e-mail order for a `Buffalo Braided Laced vest(we call `em waistcoats over here)and after a brief message from Tammy to suggest a long fit the order was winging its way across the pond. There was no fear of disappointment as your web-site justifies confidence. On delivery the vest proved to be all that I expected in every department and fits a treat.
Fox Creek Leathers may be a small company but they sure know how to look after their customers, they work hard to ensure 100% satisfaction and create a superlative range of leathers they deserve all the accolades that come their way.
Thanks again for your kind and friendly service, I won`t hesitate to promote your products.
As Arnie said.....I`ll be back.
All the best for the future Dave Folkestone Great Britain.

Braided Nickel Vest

I have had my braided buffalo nickel vest for several months now. Excellent quality, top notch vest. Simply the best quality vest I have found anywhere. The sizing help offered by your customer service was perfect. I love the vest - the look, the feel, the quality, and the protection are exactly what I was looking for in a motorcycle vest. Thank you again Fox Creek for a truly superb product. You will not find a better vest for any price anywhere. The leather and the feel are amazing.
Best Leather Products I've Ever Found
Posted by Casey on Aug 21st 2006
Attached you'll find a picture of me on my 2005 Yamaha Road Star wearing my Fox Creek chaps, vest and packing my Fox Creek leather travel bag strapped to my backrest. I was on a road trip to a management meeting for my company riding up Highway 95 in Idaho, northwest of Boise.
You guys make the best leather products I've ever found. It is awesome. Very comfortable. It was in the mid-90s that day and all the gear was actually pretty comfortable, given the conditions. I'm impressed with the quality and workmanship and will continue to buy my gear from you guys whenever I need something new.
Keep up the good work.

Have had the Braided Buffalo Nickel Vest for a few months now and couldn\'t be more pleased with it. The quality and the workmanship are first rate, and the fit is great. Customer service is second to none, they called me the next day to inform me that my vest was not available at time of purchase and gave me a new approximate time of arrival; arrival was as promised. Have had a number of remarks about my vest and don\'t hesitate to drop your name. Was so pleased that I just purchased a pair of chaps and am looking forward to receiving those. I am sure that this won\'t be last purchase with you, thanks for a great product.
Love my Braided Buffalo Nickel Vest

My purchase of the Braided Buffalo Nickel Vest was my first purchase from Fox Creek, but will certainly not my last. The vest met my high expectations and fits perfectly. The customer service was excellent, the delivery was fast and the price was excellent. All the ingredients for a very happy customer. I am so pleased with your vest that I have already come back to your web site and purchased your travel bag, and I have requested a sample swatch of the leather overpant. Not only that, but you have a very easy to use web site.

For a Florida boy that is an oxymoron. But a leather vest can be used for all occasions, especially when the sun has dipped below the horizon hours earlier and you are riding down US1 from Daytona towards Cocoa Beach. Brrrr.
I ordered a braided buffalo nickel vest from Fox Creek Leather this past April, 2005. I promptly received the product, tried it on and found out it was too large. So I called Fox Creek on a Wednesday and spoke to Melinda who took the time to ensure the replacement I was to be sent was the correct size. Melinda sent me a replacement that I received on Friday!
What I received was a beautiful 3.25-4.5oz leather vest, that fit perfectly. The leathers Paul Trachy sells are drum dyed, naked leather. Not the leather-dust swept off the floor and glued together. The braided buffalo nickel vest has laced sides that I laced to “just closed”. (I can see me having to loosen up the sides this coming October when the wife and I do our annual Fall Colour Run to Kentucky though!) The genuine buffalo nickels add that old school touch to the vest. The braiding complements my wife’s leather and the pockets do hold paper currency at slab speeds!
I wore this vest for a 3100 mile ride this past May 2005, right after having received it. My travels from Florida during that trip included the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Skyline Drive. Upstate Maryland, the District, and loads of rural roads in-between. The only time I thought about not wearing the vest was when I was hiking up to Linville Falls! Full leathers and a 2 mile hike will warm ya up!
So I do recommend this vest! The word is spreading about Fox Creek. My friends at bonnevilleamerica.com are bragging about a certain homegrown America company in Independence VA: Fox Creek Leathers!
In closing I would like to use the words of brother Jaeger, “Seriously, folks -- if you're in the market for new leathers, check em out. Their products are worth twice what you'll pay for em, their service is fast and efficient, and theyre really nice people.”
