The leather feels SO soft!

Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size

I loved wearing this for early fall, as it has a nice fuzzy lining that is sure to keep you warm (including the pockets!). The leather feels UNREAL, like butter. It runs true to size/a little small, so if you're in doubt, order up. Needless to say, this jacket is super bad booty.

I rented this from RTR Unlimited! It was my top choice and I was so excited to get it! I felt very luxurious wearing this around for the last week. I got endless compliments. I wore it out, to client meetings, to a Marathon party brunch- it worked with everything and was actually super warm. I was sad to send it back!

Cute! Narrow in the shoulders.

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
This was a great-looking jacket! Fun to wear something that is not in my normal wheelhouse. It did run a touch small in the shoulders--I typically wear a small in jackets, sometimes a medium. This one, I got the medium and it was still snug in the shoulders. Hard to wear much underneath it, which is no good when the weather is cold.

This jacket runs very small, even though I ordered a size large it still didn't fit across my chest when I tried to zip it up. Not for women with full busts!

Great jacket

Size worn: L

Definitely runs a bit small so can't wear heavy sweaters underneath. However, I love that it was lined with fleece as it definitely was much warmer than my other leather jacket. Great piece and can be worn with almost anything!

This jacket is well cut, soft, flattering and although simple still very much a statement piece. True to size, it's really soft and light and I really like the fleece lining. I got this as a backup and I ended up wearing my first choice but I plan on renting it again to wear with some skinny jeans and heels for a night out.

So Comfortable and Chic!

Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small

This jacket is so soft. I literally received my package from Rent the Runway and when I saw this jacket, started petting the fabric. It feels incredible. The jacket does run small so you can't layer underneath it very well but its super warm. Like most Helmut Lang jackets, this one is shorter in the back than it is in the front (something to keep in mind for low-rise jeans.

Great winter jacket - warm lining

Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
Ordered this in a Large because it was the only size available, but it actually works well for the winter as I can wear layers / a sweater underneath in the brutal cold. This jacket is also lined with something warm (I think fleece), which is an added bonus for winter months. That said, probably wouldn't work well on a warmer fall or spring day. Very cute fit, amazing quality leather, loving this piece I don't want to return it!

Soft Rocker Leather Jacket

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This leather jacket is very soft and has fleece lined pockets. It is lined and is quite warm, as leather often can be. The style is very flattering, in my opinion. It definitely has the tough girl "leather jacket" look which is a little different than my usual style, but that makes it fun! Got Lots of compliments when I wore it!

I didn't want to send it back. Jacket has butter soft leather and smooth lining. Was a great jacket for spring transition dressing. Looks great with jeans or a feminine dress. Pockets keep it casual and convenient. Every time I wore it, I received compliments. I'll probably rent again.

I need it!

Size worn: L
Rented for: Other
Cannot begin to describe how perfect this jacket was, nor how many compliments I got! I've tried leather jackets many times and they never fit well- not the case with this one. Like butter, it's so soft. It's also lined with fleece so warm, but actually not too hot - I wore it to a concert and was comfortable. Stylistically, it's a great mix - rugged but not over the top and cute with both jeans and dresses.

Beautiful but not cut for the short waisted

Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This jacket is gorgeous and supple. It looked just OK on me. I'm short waisted so it hung a bit weird. My daughter who is 5'7" and a size 8 also had the same issue because although she is tall she is all leg. Although I will admit it did look better on her. The arms are snug, so if you have bigger arms consider something thin underneath

You won't regret renting it!

Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I rented a size up (L instead of M) because that's what was available and I was dying for a leather jacket, so it was definitely a little big on me (sleeves especially). However, I got some compliments on the bigger fit so I would not recommend against going up a size if you really want it! The leather is beautiful and the lining is warm, but I think it can be worn well into spring.

This jacket was fabulous. Perfect size, perfect fit, perfect weight. I'm debating renting again and then purchasing in the fall because I doubt I'll find a better piece. I wore it mostly with jeans just running around town but felt like it definitely could be work to a hipper office or work function.

Great edgy look

Size worn: P
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
The jacket was incredibly warm because it was lined in fleece, which kept me warm in temperatures as low as 30 degrees. The fleece lining was thin enough to not add much bulk, and I could still wear a thin sweater underneath. I also loved the side pockets, which aren't apparent in the picture. The look is the perfect balance of edgy and polished, with faded gold hardware and a very boxy silhouette. However, I should note that the leather itself, while incredibly soft and high quality, was much thinner than I expected. This is because, as other reviewers have mentioned, it's from their diffusion line.

Size worn: P
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Everyday
I first got the size Small in my unlimited order, but it was a tad big. So I went for the P and it fit perfectly. It's a great fitting leather jacket and it doesn't add as bulk as I thought it would. Looks better in heels, but what doesn't. Highly recommend for a everyday spring/fall jacket.

The everyday event was always pleasurable due to the style and softness of this Jacket!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Everyday
The fit was good, just a bit tight, but not uncomfortable. I've always loved 'lambskin' leather on handbags as well as jackets so this Jacket really appeal to me. I wear it almost everyday, if the weather permits and am able to wear a light cardigan under it for stability, but it's very warm and can go alone if not too cool weather continues. I love the style as well, being a 'biker' jacket and all. Cons are: just the tightness, even being medium other then that, it is a Great Jacket and anyone that rents i'm sure will fall in love with the comfort of it as well as the style. Rent with confidence and you will Not be disappointed! GBU! Until my Next Review!

Great leather jacket

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size

This was the perfect leather jacket! I wore this jacket with everything from pencil skirts, to running tights. It is lightweight and warm, the perfect combination for spring weather. The leather was extremely soft and the jacket itself was comfortable and allowed for movement. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a casual leather jacket.
