Yeah, this is THE jacket. The "Raiders of the Lost Ark" Indiana Jones jacket the world fell in love with, myself included!
Coyle's Clothing has produced this awesome replica of the original "Raiders" jacket. Cut from soft lambskin leather, the jacket features two flight jacket style cargo pockets, side entry hand warmer pockets, single panel bi-swing back, side adjustment straps, side vents, inside chest pocket, and measurements and details taken from actual filming jackets. The leather is dark brown, with a finish that will age to give it a natural, broken-in look. This jacket is the product of years of painstaking research to make it as much like the one you saw on the big screen as possible. We think it is without equal.
Make no mistake, these jackets are far from "costume" fare. They are department store quality, suitable for everyday use. Many of Coyle's jacket owners find that our jacket has quickly become their favorite!

More detailed information:
Although this jacket has been copied by many people, including the man who made them for the movies, I have never copied anyone's work. I always felt that no one made exactly what I saw on screen. The original UK tailor, Peter Botwright, was the only one in a position to make an exact duplicate, but even he had trouble doing it, instead deferring to fans for direction. My research has been ongoing to this day.
My main references have been the film (the only version I have concerned myself with is Raiders of the Lost Ark), rare reference photos of screen-used jackets, jackets on exhibit, measurements of jackets in private collections, and Tony Nowak's "Raiders" replica of an original of mysterious origin. But recently I acquired what I believe to be the most definitive reference of all.
A few years ago I stumbled across a UK eBay listing for an odd leather jacket dating back to the 1980s made by the original Indy jacket maker. It was a long, biker/bomber style jacket with sleeve cuffs. Although clearly not an "Indy Jacket" clone, I thought the wrinkly lambskin it was made of was interesting (in light of Tony Nowak's experience), so I bought it. When it arrived I looked it over quickly and went "huh!" and stored it away. Several years later, I took it out to give it a second look. I slowly realized that the jacket's pattern I had so quickly dismissed was, fundamentally, the Raiders jacket. Ignoring the half dozen small details that differed, I could see the original pattern in all it's funky glory. There were several revelations in construction and cut, but now when I watch the jacket in the film (yes, I "watch" costumes!) I can't "un-see" the DNA of this jacket in the original on screen.
Based on this, I believe that my jacket is the closest in cut to the original "hero" jacket that has been offered. Try it and let me know if you don't agree!

Indiana jones jacket
Upon arrival, from first wear, I knew instantly this was my new favourite Indy jacket, without a doubt. I own many Indy jackets, including some from the original makers, but for me, this is the perfect raiders jacket, from the high end leather quality to the colour and fit, this jacket is perfect, thank you Todd ! I couldn’t recommend it more ! Fantastic !
Coyles Raiders jacket
Absolutely blown away by this jacket, the age on the leather is incredible and the attention to detail is amazing. I think it might be my favourite Indy jacket that I currently own, I really hope the jackets come back in stock because they are a great option for a Raiders style jacket.
Great comfortable fit, correct dimensions, fantastic accurate colouring, both inside and out, ...probably the best Indy jacket out there. The only annoying thing for me is that this lot had a very wrinkly pebbly skin, I personally prefer a smoother hide. Otherwise phenomenal all 'round! Get one!
Just received my jacket! (Two days early at that). I loved this jacket the second I put it on. Perfect fit, the leather looks, feels and smells great. It’s also very soft and supple too. I had a Todd’s jacket many years ago and it unfortunately was stolen. So happy to have one again.
I was hesitant to order the jacket at first due to the price and the shipping, but is was worth every penny. The quality of the jacket is superb and it fits perfectly. If your looking for either a great replica or just a nice jacket to wear on the day-to-day, you'll be absolutely satisfied with this
Indiana Jones Jacket
This is the second Indy jacket I have bought from Todd´s website over several years since it first appeared here. Both were gorgeous replicas of the on-screen version, but this latest one is my favorite! The display images are very true to the one purchased. Thanks again, Todd!
I got the jacket not just for the Indy cosplay but for everyday use. It's a very nice jacket! Goes well with almost any clothing. The leather is very nice and soft. I love it.
