At the recommendation of a Revzilla salesperson, I ordered two jackets with the purpose of choosing one and returning the other. A great way to try both on since I was undecided on which I might like. This created my only negative in terms of experience. More on that later.
The 1000 Chapter is a superb jacket. Fit and finish are top notch, the sizing excellent only because the salesman recommended I go down a size even though my measurements indicated otherwise. A perfect fit. This is a testament to the knowledge of RZA staff.
This is a heavy jacket! Lots of well thought out appointments such as venting, pockets and more. The leather is soft and supple, and the D30 is bodacious. Living in Colorado I will be able to use year round, especially when going over high mountain passes. Two thumbs up. And besides, my wife says when I wear it I'm a chick magnet- her way of saying I made a good decision on the purchase.
My negative? I was advised the jacket I did not choose could be returned and would only cost me $7.50. In fact I repeated the number to the salesman and he confirmed it. I remember saying to him "what a great way to decide which jacket I want- it is well worth the $7.50." Trouble is, the cost was over $17 (so far) as I had to pay for shipping. Next time I'll remember to look at the return policy, as I would have seen what I was being repeatedly told was totally bogus. May not sound like much, but when you are spending as much as the Chapter costs, every little bit, even $10 helps.
Yes, I recommend this product.
