Well made and durable (2023-09-09)
I made a comment in 2009 when I received my jerkin; I've had it now for 14 years and it's a three season garment, I wear it constantly. It's been a handy and adaptable part of my wardrobe.

Great piece of kit (2021-11-30)
Very pleased with the Leather Jerkin. My only wish was that it had hand warmer pockets similar to some of the WW1 Jerkins I have seen. However it is nice soft supple leather and the fit is just fine.

Top Quality 9 years and still looks great (2018-11-27)
I wrote a review -Great Work (9/10/2009)- when I bought this, nine years ago. I wear this jerkin through three seasons, almost daily. It has held up wonderfully, I still get people asking where I got it.

Roger - Maryland
Top Quality (2018-11-01)
I wrote a review some years ago when I first bought this jerkin. I wanted to be sure what year I bought it; '08 I think. I've worn this jerkin daily, eight months of the year, for maybe the last ten years. Its stood up well, and I still get compliments and questions on it.

Roger - Maryland
excellent service w/quick delivery (2018-04-29)
Some how I thought the vest was shorter and compatable with a kilt. Was still pretty sharp and will be easy to convert.

Ralston - US
Great delivery time especially over the xmas period. (2018-01-04)
Bought for son who is Kiwi HRS member. Good fit and quality. He is extremely happy with his new jerkin.

Herlihy - NZ
Very nice (2017-10-12)
Excellent product. Good delivery time. Very good at giving updated info re delivery date. Asked for help re sizing and got very good advice. Recommend going down a size from your normal chest size as the product is sized somewhat large. I take a 44"in a jacket and, per recommendation, went with a medium which fits perfect.

Very happy (2017-09-19)
Very happy with the quality and fit! Jerkins are oversized so my advise is: order your normal size. Fast shipment and outstanding customerservice.

Boekestijn - NL
Great quality, supersonic delivery. (2017-09-18)
Great quality and attention to detail. Yes, the button holes are stiff at first, but leather dressing will soften the new leather. The quick and accurate advice re sizing was spot on and appreciated. Mine will be used as intended, keeping me warm and clothing catch protected around the garage and working outdoors.

R U KIDDING!?! (2017-08-15)
Second purchase of this item in two weeks! (second one for back-up as I couldn't believe after years of browsing/searching I could find anything CLOSE to this pattern Jerkin!).

Stiff Leather. Well made. Period style. Incredibly FAST delivery!

Why didn't I know about this company before!?!

(BTW... this one's for normal day-to-day clothing... as are the other 20th century "miracles" found here... I'm an 18th century "buff")


Charles Redmond - US
WOW!!! (2017-08-01)
Been looking for a leather jerkin for years...
This item MORE than "fits the bill"!

Thank you (and I'm ordering another as a back-up!)

Charlie - USA
British jerkin (2017-06-01)
Beautiful reproduction looks exactly like the picture of an original I have right down to the olive drab wool liner. Buttons are a little stiff but I'm sure they'll loosen up with a little wear.
All in all I'm delighted with it.

Good quality and excellent service (2017-01-10)
Ordered a leather jerkin XXL and upon arrival found it to be too big I returned for an exchange to a XL which arrived rapidly , both items are of very good quality and make.
Unfortunately for me I should have just got a large but now feel too embarrassed to return again .
My fault not WPG

Fast delivery (2016-11-25)
Exceptional, 5 days UAE to the south of the south of New Zealand and in the same week that inter island freight etc was severely disrupted by earthquake.
Great product, just have to change the WW2 buttons for some leather football type buttons for WW1, but otherwise 5/5

Fast delivery (2016-11-02)
I confess, I was afraid that it was not the right fit. I wrote to WPG giving my measurements and they have told me that the one I ordered was too big. They have sent the smaller one and I must confirm that it is perfect.

Rev. (2014-10-20)
Very good garment for price. Wool lining a little lighter weight than I remember from the originals, but much tighter woven (and probably better quality). Buttons plastic but functional. Purists may have to change to wooden ones. Quick delivery, outstanding service.

Leather Jerkin (2014-10-06)
Very well made, looks spot on comparing with wartime pictures of issue kit. Excellent delivery service on this item, especially considering it came from an overseas warehouse. The other item I ordered at the same time, which was to ship from a U.S. Warehouse, has still not been delivered despite the fact that it was ordered over 2 weeks ago.

repro de cierta calidad el problema es el olor huele a cuero magrebí

casariego - ES
Leather Jerkin (2014-08-08)
Fully satisfactory - four panel construction, however the buttonholes are extremely tight. With use they loosen up. The leather is of surprisingly good quality, as often the WPG products use substandard leather, the most jarring examples being Pattern 1914 belts and the Service Dress cap chinstraps. The button type is perhaps not suitable for WWI (large brown plastic) but perfectly satisfactory for other use. Wool lining of high quality. Would recommend ordering based on true size, as the manufacturing run my item is from appears to be sized based on chest size with jacket etc already taken into account for total size: no need to upsize to fit a jacket underneath.

Arrived very quickly and I'm quite impressed with both the fit and the quality. Excellent. Thank you.

Leather Jerkin (2014-07-19)
Sizes on the latest production are slightly large. Based on true chest measurements, rather than chest + service dress/battle dress jacket, the jerkin provides enough room and bulk that I cannot wear it buttoned with web equipment over the top. I wrap it about myself as a robe and then put my web equipment over the top. This is a satisfactory solution and the jerkin will be used as designed in winter months with thicker undergarments. The buttons are appropriate for WWII Canadian use, can't comment on their suitability for other eras, perhaps not the First World War. In such case, wearing it as I must with the Service Dress and Pattern 1908 web, it is perfectly satisfactory.

Leather quality is good. Wool liner very good. Multiple panel construction on my example, others from same vendor (WPG) have four-panel construction. Both instances are accurate for both World Wars.

I've wanted a jerkin like this since I first saw one in a history book in the elementary school library. I look forward to using it in the woods as a work garment also, where I suspect it'll be a perfect medium weight cold weather solution that leaves the arms free and has good ventilation.
