I looked in a number of biker shops for a ladies leather riding vest and did not find one that met my needs. I had a couple of requirements - one of which was functional pockets on the inside and outside. This vest has 3 great inside pockets for camera, cell phone, tissues, things you need to be able to access easily when riding. The outside pockets are deep as well. The leather is of great quality and the price was fantastic compared to other retailers.
