I've got two deposits for two jackets from Langlitz at present.   Great people to work with and waaaaaaaaaaaay more options than you'd imagine from looking at their site.   Their Japan site is the a lot easier to navigate and you can get some good info off the blog at that site: http://langlitzjapan.com/index.html

Well it came this morning, 2 days early, all gloriously wrapped in blue.  How the hell it got to Texas from NY in 24 hours is a mystery to me.

Dead on fit for my size.  No room for layering but actually prefer this fit over what I had in mind.  It's the ultimate windbreaker...if you into that sort of thing.  But the fit and feel is much more of a garage type jacket which I really like. I rarely look like I haven't just left a garage somewhere anyways.  I'd actually like to get an XL for layering but that would be extravagant for what these cost. 

If anyone's on the fence with colors my advice is to go with the grey, absolutely.  It's a very dark grey, completely simple and the logo is very subtle.  In many web pics the grey appears lighter than it actually is.  As was noted, very tough material.  I'll post pics shortly.

So is that you 7tacos?

Yeah, that's me, I'm new here...Hello.   

I ordered a large in grey a few days ago.  It's due tentatively here on the 5th.  I'm a little concerned about sleeve length since I'm 5'11 but I take a long in a few brands so It'll probably be close enough.   At 205 Lbs I think it will work with a layer.   I'm in Texas and can usually get buy with a good shell and a fleece most of the winter and this design gives me a lot of room that I like. 

Off the top of my head, without seeing it, the only thing I suspect that would make it better is the liner.  The liner will wear out before the condura--that stuff is really tough stuff and heavy.  I have a full riding suit in grey condura and that stuff is insanely tough stuff.  It's hard to understand this unless you've actually felt the material. I think the IH condura would be ideal with a cotton drill or something similar that you'd get in a leather jacket.   

I'm guessing I'll love it.  I'm very basic and functional with what I wear so IH's line appeals to me a lot.   I think this jacket's just plain tough looking and super understated.  Good for a tumble or two if required.

Just sold one of these to a new customer, this is what he said in the accompanying email:

"btw, i have a grey condura riding suit, high end, from aerostitch usa.  last night when i was debating over black or grey, i took an old swatch of the material and put, peanut butter, olive oil, and some beet juice on it, let it set for an hour and then hosed it with some stain remover and agitated it in the sink.  came out completely like new.  this is good stuff for a daily jacket...  "

...that's my email.   I'm looking forward to the new addition.  The jacket's just leaving the hub from across the pond so it'll be a week or so and I will post pics.
