Understanding it's "modified," that is kinda the classic Type III look--short enough to be able to ride a horse or a bike without it getting caught up in your legs, which means even a T shirt will poke out below it. I think you have to be careful lengthening the pattern cos it can ruin the aesthetic if it is too long.

Right, but like @Paul9221  mentioned, for whatever reason this modified type III is significantly shorter than any other IH modified type III made by IH by a good 1-1.5"....at least in an XL anyways.  So to me this one has the classic standard type III length and really shouldn't be classified as a modified.

I'd have to disagree. The "modified" designation is not strictly about length. A true type III would not have hand warmers. The 2526J has them.

Of course...handwarmer pockets obviously make it modified as well so maybe I should have worded that differently to be more specific.   What I'm saying is the length is more along the lines of a classic type III and not that of an IH modified type III.

I get where you are coming from. Often, the additional length goes hand-in-hand with the addition of the hand warmers. Which makes the length of the 2526J a bit of an outlier. An odd "duck", if you will.

It's obviously a great jacket.  But, as stupid as it may sound,  I would buy it again if they lengthened it -- that extra length would mean I would wear it more frequently.

Like I mentioned to in the original post, at this length, it works fine over a T-shirt but looks like a little kid's jacket over a UHF or any normal length sweater.  And that's what I love about type IIIs, you can wear them over a T or layer them with almost anything; so practical!

I’d like a re-run of the hooded deck jacket. Not the long coat, the regular length. In black, navy, or indigo. Or really any color but khaki, lol

What about a re-run of that jacket with the pocket design of the IHV-31 vest?  That means handwarmers without pocket flaps and vertical chest pockets.  Also with a zippered front.

Nope. It’s a nice idea, as long as it was something other than indigo. But the IHJ-69/70’s fill that gap I think. Especially now the one is in continuous production.

I'd love to see a UHF in this gold/black colourway:

Moleskin jeans in a 888 cut,using a substantial fabric that seems to be missing in the market.
R.M.Williams once did a decent pair of “Riders” in a heavy stiff Moleskin,but now only offer a lightweight cotton drill.

How much of that beige/black denim is there laying around?  How about a rider's jacket made with that denim, lined with dark grey ripstop, stuffed with Primaloft?  Or a tanker jacket with that denim?

Apart from  that, I'd love to see the next gen Primaloft vests come with vertical chest pockets, similar to the one's found on the IHJ-79.  The technical tops from Iron Heart are my most used jackets in the colder seasons, as they're lightweight and practical.  Minus the vest, which needs more pockets.

I'd settle for the 888 cut in that denim, but a well conceived jacket would be the tits. I was bang up for the type II idea until "lack of retailer interest" put the knockers on it. "Lack of retailer interest" is like the "musical differences" of the IH world. A phrase that brings with it the pain of never getting to experience what might have been...

Type III's and to some extent Type I's and II's have been done one way or another.  But rider's jackets in some form or another haven't been done in different iterations for the past few years?  Correct me if I'm wrong?

At least not in 21oz weights.
