    • Beowulf,

      First, thank you for visiting Best Glide ASE at

      Sorry for the delay, I had to get the expert to help me answer this one.

      The back is all one piece. Of course, there are separate pieces in the jacket but these begin under the arms. The lining is made of cotton and the cuffs and waistband are knit. The jacket is not insulated except for the insulation provided by the leather itself and the cotton lining.

      Because this is a military jacket, its sizing is pretty true to size. Therefore, we recommend going up one size if you are going to wear anything heavy underneath. I have a similar jacket and I went up a size and it fits very well.

      I will forward you a picture in a separate email.

    • Hi, good day!

      Can you pls. advice me how do I know what size of the jackets fits me?
      I'm a 5'10" tall, fairly build guy, what size do you suggest? Thanks.
    • Hello,

      I do apologize for the delay in sending this message.

      The best way to measure for our jackets is around the chest with arms down. These jackets are made to fit, meaning that if you are planning on wearing a sweater or thicker shirt under it you will need to go up a size.

      Then you will need to decide if you need a regular or long. These jackets have a short waist. This means that it will sit at the belt line. If you are long waisted you will want to go with a long.

      Our return policy is simple: If you are not happy with it you can return it (with the tags still attached) and we can refund or exchange.

      Please let me know if I can assist you further.

      Thank you, Best Glide Customer Service
