: Being most of us have Raiders jackets, i was curious to know how long every body had theirs and how are they holding up. I have had the jacket a little over a year and its holding up great! I wear it just about every day and I'm looking to buy one in hide for the more colder weather although the lambskin holds up well. Take care,

I've had mine now for almost eight years (my jacket has the label "Leather Concessionaires" inside-the previous name of Wested Leather)-Ive had it so long, that when the name Wested became known to me, I immediately contacted them and made sure it was the same jacket and company-Peter Botwright confirmed this. It made me feel better. Actually, this is what they were called when they made them for each of the films since they were made before I got this one. It is holding up quite nicely-not ripped or pulling stitching,and yes, the lambskin is quite durable. I have gotten this thing filthy with mud and it cleans up nicely. It has a nice assortment of scratches and scrapes-all of which I did myself through natural wear and tear. I may think about getting a distressed LC version in the future, but I am glad I got the undistressed Raiders version first.
