    American Bison Leather

    Our American Bison Garment Leather

    What better leather to use for vests and jackets than Genuine American Bison leather, maybe the finest leather available today. America’s original leather and a quintessential part of America’s history, the American Bison represents the unbridled freedom of our great country.

    Our Bison Garment Leather is a 1.2-1.4mm (3.5-4oz.) full-grain, chrome-tanned leather with a little oil to give it a full hand. The hides are slightly shrunken to give a natural, pronounced pebble-grain finish. It has a nice drape while remaining extremely tough and bold.

    Bison Hides & Characteristics

    Please note that these hides are a natural, naked tannage. This along with the fact that scarring and markings are much more prevalent on Bison hides gives the leather true character. This is part of what makes Bison products truly unique, no two hides are alike. Most Bison hides will have some visible scarring and/or other natural range markings. Please consider this when ordering Bison products.

    Great. I'm glad I found CoronadoLeather and the many fine products. You don't need to live on a ranch. This vest will fit in with all but the most dressy occasions. It will serve in place of a sweater, plus the added bonus or many pockets. Bison(buffalo) skin is tough. It served the Native Americans and the early white settlers in many ways. I like mine because of the pockets but more is the fact that I can snap the snaps and that puts the end to a bitting wind. I can only recommend this, no hesitation.

    Five stars for a quality garment.
    Three stars for concealment.
    Concealment is limited to a small frame pistol such as my S&W airweight 38 2" barrel. Compact semi-auto Sig P250 9mm 3" barrel prints too much to conceal with vest closed. There may be some smaller caliber sub-compact semi autos that would work.

    Simply the best!

    The quality is undeniably the best I have ever seen in a vest, much less one designed for concealment. This is an outstanding product!

    I special ordered my Bison Lapel Vest without the conceal carry pockets. The salesperson advised the vest would deliver in six weeks. I had my vest in my hands in four weeks. The vest is absolutely perfect. I have owned over nine Coronado Leather Products and knew that I would be getting a quality product. I was not disappointed. The Bison leather is soft with a beautiful leather grain. All stitching, metal snaps, zipper, pockets, rear adjustment belt - all perfect. I could not be more happier with this vest. These folks really know what they are doing when it comes to leather and leather products. To the individuals who actually made the vest, you are the absolute best in the industry. I purchase a lot of leather products, i.e. boots, jackets, vests, holsters, wallets, belts, etc., I have never seen any better quality than what you produce. Thanks for producing quality Made in the USA and Made in North America products.

    I like this vest very well. The bison leather is very nicely grained and a wonderful color. The wife thinks it looks good, as do some of my work friends! Seems like it will be durable for many years. I do a fair amount of walking in this vest, and it's a bit heavy in terms of the total weight of the garment - but interestingly enough it doesn't lead to overheating easily.

    I don't carry a weapon, but those big pockets can be quite handy for all sorts of items that wouldn't fit in a standard pocket. The rest of the pockets are handy also, with a nice variety where you can store things, such as glasses & phone.
