Jacket was a perfect fit! I would love to add to my personal collection! Soft leather and hung perfectly across the shoulders and the collar draped well. Will definitely have to rent again!

I signed up for rtr unlimited ... I had this leather jacket in my queue and I got it in July. Luckily I was heading on vacation where it was the perfect temp to wear this light leather jacket. The leather is SO soft and this jacket is beautiful!

Odd proportions

Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I normally wear an 8 or 10, 36C, and the large was huge in the shoulders but so small in the waist (bottom) that I could barely zip it up--b/c if this snug bottom, it bunched in the middle. Yuk. Just weird. But i does has a great fleece lining, which would be awesome for winter.

Unlimited Review

Size worn: P
Overall fit: True to Size

Please note that this is from Helmut, Helmut Lang's slightly cheaper line. With that said, I own a few Helmut Lang leather jackets and this is by far the softest. It actually feels as smooth as butter! However, one of my favorite things about the main line is the signature slim, long arms that, at least for me, create an ultra sleek silhouette. The arms on this one, especially the upper arm, were much larger and more like a traditional jacket. These can be more forgiving, but take away from the postmodern aesthetic. Also of note if you're unfamiliar with the brand, size P does not necessarily mean petite and is actually more like an XS. Unless you're 5'8" or above, the sleeves should fit like normal.

It was... fine.

Size worn: P
Overall fit: True to Size

I thought I'd wear it more than I did. It looked better open vs. closed - perhaps it was cut for someone with a longer torso. It wasn't bad but it wasn't amazing and I wasn't excited to wear it. Leather is very soft though and it is lightly lined with a soft material. Not bad but not good enough to rent again (or to want to buy).

I love this jacket so much!!!! The leather is amazing quality and it looks so nice on. The shape fits really well. It's not too biker chick too which I like because it's more mature/dressed up. In love. Wish I could keep forever. I went with a size S. I'm usually XS/S and the S fit perfectly.

Unlimited item

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I received this as an unlimited item, and wore it a couple times with casual outfits. The leather is the most soft, luxurious leather I've ever had the chance to wear. It was worth it just for that. I personally didn't find the moto fit super flattering (I'm busty). I think it would look best on someone with a thin, boyish figure.

The jacket is so cute but the over all fit was a little awkward - the middle was a little bunched and unflattering so I had to return

Disappointed, Unflattering and Too Big

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
Overall this jacket was way too large and an unflattering cut/fit. The sleeves were too long and the body part of the jacket was boxy and also ill fitting. I recieved a size small and the porportions didn't look right at all. I wished it had worked, the jacket looked so great online and would've been a great Fall wardrobe addition.

Easy returns as always

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
Perfect for tall/lanky, straight/slim hip gals. I have a small upper body frame/waist, but some shape to my hips/butt and the small was too tight to wear comfortably with a top under it without bunching the top and fabric. Typically wear size 4 dress pants and boyfriend type jeans and then 6 in super skinny jeans (don't like then to be "painted on"), small tops, size 4 flowy dresses and then size 6 if fitted on the booty - if that helps compare to your size and body shape. Order up a size if you have more of an hour glass figure/hips and a butt. Probably fits true to size for people who are taller/lanky with very straight/slim hips! Good material and over-all jacket!! Just didn't love the style and look once I got it on. I go for more straight and traditional clean cut lines so this was branching out for me anyway with the angles.

This jacket is a great completer piece and can be worn with just about anything. I rented it throgh the Unlimited program and kept it for two weeks, wearing it just about every other day. I will say the cut is a bit smaller than normal Helmet jackets, but not by much. How can I own this?!

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.

Really flattering cut--it falls beautifully. This is a perfect autumn jacket. As with all leather coats, though, limited arm mobility. That's to be expected.

loved the jacket. A little tight in the arms - could barely wear a long sleeve shirt under it. Also, the jacket is meant to be work open - looked awful zipped up. Not the most pratical coat. But opened and with a tshirt it looked awsome.

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!

Stylish but not form fitting. I'm not a big fan of the trend in leather jackets to have this big panel across the front of the jacket that zips over everything -- it's not clear in the picture, but that's there. Just not a fan.

It isn't very warm and I would have liked to wear it more, but in the Northeast in December this just wasn't warm enough. It would have been great for the Spring, or over a dress to give it an edgy look.

Got this in my Unlimited shipment and enjoyed wearing it--it's lined and warm with beautiful leather. I am tallish and broad-shouldered, though, and the large was too small in the shoulders for me to wear it comfortably zipped and a little on the cropped side for my long torso.

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small

top quality leather and tailoring. asymmetrical design and zippered pocket on sleeve add stylish detail. only minor quibbles: the fit is small especially across the bust. the remedy is to not zip it up all the way. it looks great at various degrees of being zipped with the collar folded. the fleece lining is soft and warm in the body and pockets. the sleeve lining is an odd fabric: thin and not smooth.

Cute! Narrow in the shoulders.

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small

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.

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.

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

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!
