The Vented Racing Jacket
Posted by Jimmy Leonard on Mar 19th 2015
Just like so many people have previously stated, I was amazed by the heft of this jacket and I was truly impressed that this jacket could be so soft and the leather be this thick.
When I first put this jacket on I thought that it was actually too small and that there was no way that I could wear my normal insulated flannel shirt, that I always wear, under it. How wrong I was! I wore this jacket around for half a day and it was like it was made just for me no matter whether I had layers on under it OR just a T-shirt.
My first ride after receiving this jacket was a 40º and cloudy day, and i was only wearing a T-shirt and a very thin hoodie, under the jacket. When the temp. reached 48º I took the hoodie off and I was still very comfortable while riding on my Harley Street Glide. Since then, I have ridden in 80º and sunny. I did take the quilted liner out, opened the vents and was again very comfortable.
Not only am I very happy with this jacket but the friendliness and level of professionalism that I received from Terri as she helped me with all my questions and making sure that I got my measurements right. Even after I placed my order I had numerous emails back and forth with both Terri and Melinda and again with the same professionalism and friendly manner.
If I have a need for any other leather wear I will look to Fox Creek for all my needs. My hat's off to Fox Creek, thanks for the great jacket and excellent service. Also my girlfriend is equally impressed with the insulated chaps that she received.
Vented Racing Jacket....Heirloom Quality Leather Wear!
Posted by Joe B. on Jan 4th 2015
I recently bought a Vented Racing Jacket for riding my Honda F6B. I've always wanted a really nice leather jacket and now I have one. I'm in Florida so the liner is out of it and it might never go back in... but this jacket is awesome and, as long as I don't tear it up, it's the sort of thing you can pass down to a friend or relative when you croak.
I also bought a "build your own Classic Vest" for myself and a Monarch purse for my girlfriend. Everything that we have from Fox Creek is the best I've ever owned and the customer service is the best. All of the folks there are interested in only one thing and that is customer satisfaction. I ordered the wrong size jacket and they sent me a new one before they even got the small one back.
I have a $900+ "Remy" jacket that is not for motorcycle riding and is really a superb jacket. The Fox Creek jacket, vest and purse are all equal to or better than the Remy in materials, workmanship and fit. When it comes to leather, I won't shop anywhere else.

This jacket is worth every penny. I was hesitant on the sizing but the size chart was perfect. It is snug fit but not tight which is how I like my jackets to fit. This is protective gear for my first bike. I did a lot or research prior to going with this great product.
Leather is proven the best abrasion resistant material and this leather is thick but very soft. Very well made thick and heavy out of the box but very comfortable and surprisingly light to wear even in 90 degree GA humidity. I just got back from a two hour ride in the sun and was very comfortable. Highly recommend this over the mesh products available.
And being in the military; I appreciate it is made in the USA!

Amazing Fit & Quality
Posted by David on Jul 21st 2014
After ordering a $250 leather riding jacket from a popular online company (China made), and sending it back---I realized after I received my Fox Creek Leather Vented Racing Jacket, you get what you pay for.
I'm 6'2", 220lbs and ordered a 48 Long. Fit is perfect ---- like a tailor had measured me!!! I measured 44" tight, 47" with a hoodie sweatshirt on .... So I ordered a 48 long which allowed 4 fingers in between my chest and tape. Fit was spot on. Not to tight & not to loose. At 6'2" the Long fit was spot on with sleeve length and kidney pad.
The quality and construction of the jacket are unbelievable. You would swear its made by gods. No lie ! Worth every bit what Fox Creek Leather charges. I would had paid more, and I'm a poor boy. Ordered a pair of the elkskin riding gloves too. Perfect. Will be ordering a pair of custom elkskin chaps as soon as I save enough money.
You can not go wrong with the Fox Creek Leather quality. Top of the line in my book.
An Amazing Jacket!
Posted by Scott on Jul 3rd 2014
After buying a Harley, I just couldn't bring myself to get a "Harley" jacket - I didn't want to be one of those guys that has Harley everything. So I measured twice and even called to talk to one of the helpful customer service reps on the phone who suggested I get a long (I'm 6'3"). I went for the Vented Racing Jacket because I live near Lake Michigan where the temperature can drop 10 degrees along the lake shore but then heat up 15 degrees 30 miles in the other direction. I wanted versatility. But I was a bit skeptical because I've never paid this much for a jacket before and I was ordering online.
The jacket arrived in two days and I was a bit startled at first by the weight of the jacket. This is one thick jacket. The leather is definitely quality. The next thing I noticed was the heavy duty zippers. I pulled the jacket out of the box and even though it was 75 degrees out, I zipped it up and hit the road. I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to find the zippers for the vents extremely easy while riding. This jacket is built to be used on the fly, literally.
Another thing I like about this jacket is that the zippers can be somewhat hidden, tucked away inside the seams- meaning I can wear this jacket around town when I'm not riding and not appear to be wearing a Vented Racing Jacket. Even the interior pockets are roomy and are constructed of the same thick leather that the rest of the jacket is. I don't have a concealed carry, but the interior pocket is heavy duty, it almost seems built to carry a handgun. Or, in my case, a garage door opener! Good job Fox Creek Leather, thanks for a great jacket.
Hard Pressed to Find Better Quality
Posted by Scott on Jun 12th 2014
I was shopping for a few accessories and thought I'd drop a review of my jacket. I've had this jacket for nearly ten years now. Still good as new. The quality is beyond compare. You'll know it the first time you put it on. This is the type of product you purchase and have for the rest of your life. Rare to find that in this day and age.
Absolutely Oustanding Quality
Posted by Scott on Apr 21st 2014
I discovered this company via online searching and eventually ordered this jacket over the phone after getting some measurements taken by my tailor.
The moment I opened the box and felt the jacket you could tell it is a top notch product. The leather felt amazing. This jacket is built impeccably well, the quality shows in every stitch. In addition to that, with the measurements provided and the help of the girl on the phone, it fits PERFECTLY.
I haven't used it yet but I cannot imagine what could go wrong. From everything I can see and feel, it is worth every penny and is by far the best jacket I've ever owned.
I will be recommending your products to everyone, thank you!

Super fast delivery. This jacket is SWEEEEET!!
Much nicer than I expected. Truly well made,(IN AMERICA!)
Not a big fan of ordering clothing online. I was surprised how well this jacket fit. Ordered the Fitted Classic Jacket for my wife. She's going to love it.
Better Than A Poke In The Eye
Posted by Lars on Dec 4th 2013
I've ridden 6000 miles in the Vented Racing Jacket I purchased this year. It's one size larger than my chest measurement.
As it turns out, I can ride wearing just a T-shirt under this jacket with all vents open in 90ºF without it acting like a boat sail, then turn around and layer myself like a pastrami grinder with the quilted liner, a vest, sweater, neck warmer or what-all under the jacket when it's getting frosty, and be happy as a moose in a lily pond either way. YES!
All zippers and snaps still work easily. The jacket hasn't cracked, ripped, puckered, bled dye onto anything or spontaneously dropped pieces of itself onto the roadway. It has shed rain effectively for an hour or so then dried out quickly. Its pockets can securely hold everything I might think of putting in them—from vehicle documents, maps and phones to billiard balls, sock puppets, and Berettas.
This well-built, American-made riding jacket far exceeds my better-than-a-poke-in-the-eye-with-a-sharp-stick quality standard so I'm happy to support Fox Creek Leather and its competent, cheerful staff.
Here's to good riding and happiness for all of us.
