The One of a kind Kestrel
I have worn this 24/7 ever since I got it, This will be great with the sleeveless feature for my workouts and will be great for summer use, I was expecting a bit of a tighter fit, but this worked as well, did have to shrink the hood so I could see, still 10/10 product
Amazing jacket both for style and practicality
I've had my Kestrel for a few years now. It has never let me down. The seams are still holding up great and this material does not tear easily. I've used it in the fall to keep warm and I regularly use it as a motorbike jacket. The Kestrel is probably the best general purpose jacket I have right now. I get occasional compliments and questions about it because of it's unique look. Most of all, however, I enjoy just how durable this thing is. The custom sizing was a good choice for me because I don't quite fit into the normal size chart. The person coordinating with me on the measurements was friendly and helpful. I have nothing bad to say about this jacket. Great purchase.
I had received a custom Kestrel a few years back. Thanks to them they were really responsive to my messages and concerns about sizing and options. Volante pushes out quality products and they seem to treat their customers well so the get the most **** out of their buck. It may had taken a while for them to do the cutsew and options that you ask for but if you are in the range of budget I also recommend their regular items ghat they push. I believe every product that they have ever placed was mean to have a really long sustainability and resistant to elements and wear and tear. Although it may be pricy its worth every penny that they manufacture their products for you. Thanks you guys for the awesome gear and great craftmanship. You are one of my most favored artisans cant wait for you to push out my next request!! ~ Genji
Great with some critical faults.
I've been a fan of Volante ever since I first ran into them at a convention many years back now. This Jacket was fantastic out of the box, everything fit perfect, colors and stitching were good, was awesome and exactly what I wanted. Maybe a month in I ran into my first issue, the middle button of my jacket fell off, needless to say I wasn't thrilled about it and I had ordered it around Christmas so I figured it an oversight possibly do to the hectic time of year. I contacted them and shipped it back and they re attached the button on a timely manner and sent it back my way. Everything seemed fine and I was back to being happy with the jacket once again. After continued use of about one to two months time, the bottom button then fell off. Again needless to say I wasn't the happiest about this, but didn't send it back this time as if I just left the bottom unbuttoned with the top two being buttoned it wasn't noticable. Another month passes, the middle button slides on off just like before. That was sort of my last hope gone right there and for the price I paid I was officially disappointed and have yet to wear it since. TLDR: The jacket was awesome but the buttons were a constant issue making it long term unwearable. While I still love the designs over at Volante this purchase has certainly made me wary, while there are designs I'd love to own I worry that a similar issue may strike again. I'd personally wait for a sale if you wanted to get one and opt for a zipper. I may still send it in again to be fixed one day but all in all my advice is don't worry too much but do proceed with caution before making a purchase.
I'm sorry to hear you had issues with the buttons! The reality of button is that they can come loose especially when they're large shiny ones like we often use. If you send us an email, we can replace those buttons or see what can be done to make it more wearable. Thanks for your honest review!
I love my jacket but the hoodie was a little to big. Every time I put it on it covers my sight.
