Much as Indiana Jones travelled the globe in search of The Ark of the Covenant, many a budding adventurer has been tirelessly seeking the most authentic version of the original Raiders of the Lost Ark leather jacket... And here it is.

After 30 years we go back to our original Hero jacket pattern available to yours truly.

Made to order using the original patterns created by Wested Leather Co Ltd for Harrison Ford back in 1980.

The Wested Leather HERO Jacket is as close as you can come to the real thing... unless you steal one from the Smithsonian Museum or the Lucasfilm Archive, neither of which we recommend.

The jacket carries the original Leather Concessionaires label and differs in fit from the modern easy fit Wested Leather Raiders jacket that we sell today and does not fit like a regular jacket.

The jacket has no inside facings enabling the nickel zip to go right to the bottom of the jacket but may result in a wavering effect.

The collar is cut so it hangs off the back neck.

The oversize shoulder width means the sleeves are set off the shoulder and are narrower and tapered.

The inside pocket is a leather finished type with a single antique brass buckle for the side straps.

It’s an amazing high quality leather jacket !

Thanks for the great review.

Aaron Kent

Damn! The smell and look of the pre-distressed lamb skin leather is unbelievable to start with. The authentic fit and retro label only improve the quality of the jacket immeasurably. This should be the only choice for Indy fans who want a jacket JUST like the one in Raiders. End of story. End of review.

Customer Review

Dark brown, textured, soft, but thick enough, this leather is a dream and resembles the movie jacket immensely, so much so I find myself rubbing my chin, wondering the weight of imaginary golden idols.

Wested delivers again! Having assembled the perfect LC outfit, I decided to return to my roots as an Indy fan and put together the Raiders outfit. I chose the Hero in dark brown novapelle, and it is absolutely flawless: smooth-grained, buttery soft cowhide, dark brown lining, silver nickel zip, gorgeous scalloped pockets and generous slouch collar. The armholes are higher than the standard Indy jacket, but the fit is perfect and I couldn't be happier. Wested forever!
