Buffalo Nickel Vest - Great Value 2007-03-19

by from Sandy Creek, New York

57 of 62 people found this review helpful.

I have always been cautious about ordering clothing without having the ability to see what I'm buying, however in this case I found the Buffalo Nickel Vest to be all it was advertised to be and more.

The quality is excellent, workmanship first rate and sizing was right on the money.

I took delivery as published and when I opened up the box I was overjoyed.

I would not hesitate to order from Fox Creek Leather again and will certainly recommend them to my fellow club members. Thanks for being every bit as good as I had hoped for. And its made in the good ole USA!!!

How did I find Fox Creek Leather?

I had been wanting a vest for about seven years to wear when I rode my Kawasaki 1500 Drifter. In September '06 I purchased a Harley-Davidson Streetglide FLHX-I.

I became a member of the local chapter of H.O.G. ''Harley Owners Group''. So I really needed the vest for chapter patches and also ride pins. The problem? Size. All the places I looked ,their products didn't have enough X's. You see I needed seven x's. All the shops I had been in only went to 6X.

I went on line. There were many online shops, so which one do I try? There was a cool attraction to the name Fox Creek. So I called the number that was on their website. The person on the other end was Tammy. Nice lady. I explained the situation of not enough X's and ask if they would make me a vest. She said she would have to check to see if possible and put me on hold. Shortly she returned to tell me yes. It would cost me (the cost of the vest plus alteration charges). I said I would have to think about it and would get back to her.

The search continued. Next I tried a company for the big, the tall, and the portly. They had a vest just like i had been looking for. The price was one hundred forty three plus shipping. I ordered the vest and received my package in four days. I noticed it didn't weigh very much, which was a bad sign. After opening the package, it looked good, but very thin. Made in China.

Just would not work. The fit was right, so I took total measurements and called Fox Creek. Again I was talking to Tammy, nice lady. Told her about the vest I had ordered and that I needed a quality product to wear proudly and made in the U.S.A. I told her the measurements of the vest and said ''what can you do''? she replied ''let me call the factory and ask the plant manager''. Few minutes later she came back and said, ''we can do that!''. Instantly I said, ''do it''. Total excitement took over and told Tammy thank you very much! She took all the credit information she would need and told me I would receive my quality vest in four to five weeks.

Now the hard part, the wait. Tammy had told me that she would call me when they were ready to ship. I lasted four weeks and called. Tammy was on another line so the lady on the phone said it should not be very much longer. Four days later, Tammy called with good news. Vest was ready to ship and would be delivered in four to five days! Got it in three. Picked up the package, weight was good. Opened the package the smell was real leather. The nose knows. Held the vest up,heavy, put it on, fantastic, felt good and it fit!

This vest will go as many miles as I can take it, and when I die it will go on that journey also. I will wear it proudly and Fox Creek leathers is what made it possible. Also one of the most important things to me is that this vest was made in America, by Americans for Americans and I have the only one like it in the world!

Thank you Fox Creek Leather, Tammy and the people who created my vest.

Don't buy your leather anywhere else! 2003-11-26

I've previously bought two set of chaps and gloves for my wife and myself, so I ordered this vest and was expecting a top quality vest, and I was not disappointed. In fact, I was impressed again with the quality of Fox Creek merchandise. It was comfortable right out of the box like I had been wearing it for years. No break in or stiffness to this leather. That spoke to the proper curing of the leather, the perfect cut of the garment, and the quality of the assembly. The quality control at Fox Creek is the highest you can get. The buffalo nickel snaps are all exactly right side up, not haphazardly installed in any manner. They pay attention to every detail. I don't see how the product could be any better. And just like the previous leather products I bought, I am happy with the leather quality, value for my money, and the service and quick shipping from these folks.

"I was blown away..." 2007-06-12

I just ordered the buffalo nickel leather vest and was not sure how good the leather quality would be but after reading the reviews thought this sounds good I'll try it and they have a great return policy if its no good. Anyhow, I was blown away when I opened the box and saw it. The leather was top notch and heavy quality. It was exactly what I was looking for and more in a motorbike vest. The price was unbeatable for this kind of quality and the shipping was very fast. even to Canada.

This is the first time rating any company I have ordered from. I'm that impressed with Fox Creek. The vest I received was better than I've seen else where for much more. I did have one problem so I called the 800# and they said I could send it back to be fixed/replaced free of charge. The problem was one of the snaps started coming off. I said I could fix if they would send me a snap. They said we'll send you two. That way they're getting my business next time. Made in USA

Buffalo Nickel Vest Top Rate 2012-03-12

Paul Thornton in his Buffalo Nickel Vest

Following a great deal of research, I purchased the Buffalo Nickel Vest from Fox Creek Leather. I couldn't have made a better choice. The quality, fit, and appearance are absolutely first rate. My wife likes my vest so much that we are going to purchase one for her once she decides which vest she like best. I'll say this in all sincerity, the minute you take this vest out of the box, you know that you've made the right choice.

I did experience a small problem when I received the wrong vest extender. I sent an e-mail to Fox Creek in the morning and Fox Creek customer service folks responded and got a replacement in process a few hours later. This kind of service will keep these great people in business for many years to come. And not only is the buffalo nickel vest top rate, it arrived only 2 days after I submitted the order.

Great company with great products.

Buffalo Nickel Vest 2005-10-25

I recently bought a Buffalo Nickel vest through your company. I was very impressed with your customer service and was guided by your helpful staff on sizing. I never would have guessed that I would wear a mens extra small, but helpful hints on sizing helped me get the size right the first time.

The vest arrived on time and I put it on immediately. The quality is very good and is as durable as it is stylish! It\'s difficult to meet the requirements of good quality riding gear yet still maintain clothing that fits in with a general non riding public.

I would recommend your clothing to anyone looking for quality leather wear.

Unbelievable Quality 2004-05-04

by from Charlotte, NC

35 of 38 people found this review helpful.

I looked at a lot of vests and took a chance ordering by phone from Fox Creek. For some reason, I believed what I read. Ordered Monday morning and package at my door Tuesday morning. Let me tell ya...this is one fine garment. Unbelievable fit and finish. The thing is perfect, and true size. I have never had a garment on...especially leather...that fit this comfortably. The leather is soft....the likes of which I have never seen or felt. I cannot say enough about this article. I will purchase all leather items from Fox Creek in the future, and highly recommend to all.

P.S. I have never written a testimonial like this in my life. But this product and service merits comment.

Buffalo Vest - the Best 2006-07-30

Jim wearing his Buffalo Nickle Vest
The one word to describe the Buffalo Head Vest is Quality.

I had been searching several months for a vest. Frankly, I had seen the Buffalo Head Vest on Fox Creeks website but did not want to spend that much. I visited local leather shops, and true their vest were a third of the price, but not the quality that I wanted. I searched websites, and there are a bunch, but they did not promise the quality of Fox Creek. Finally, after months of not finding what I wanted in a vest, I returned to Fox Creeks website, bit the bullet, and ordered the Buffalo Nickel Vest. Now I am sorry it took so many months to decide. Fox Creeks vest is true American quality at its best. Compared to other vests that I looked at, you can see, feel, and yes, even smell the quality of this vest. Lifetime guarantee says it all. You want quality - buy from Fox Creek.

Nicest Vest I Have Ever Owned 2007-01-09

by from Shingletown, CA

I just wanted to make a few comments on the Buffalo Nickel Vest I received today via UPS. To sum it all up I would have to say WOW!!! To be honest I ordered this vest as a backup because a vest that I ordered from another vendor at double the price months ago never showed up well surprise surprise both showed at the same time.

Fox Creek in about ten days including Thanksgiving holiday. [The other] in four months. Anyhow the Fox Creek Vest has surpassed any expectations I had not just for its price but at any price. The Fox Creek leather is every bit as nice as the [other vest]. The Fox Creek fits much better to top it off.

This is my sixth vest in over twenty years of riding, and it is by far the nicest I have ever seen or owned.
