Review: Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Finn Replica Jacket

A great item for cosplaying, but not for everyday wear

We don’t normally review clothing on Roobla, but when we were contacted by USA Jacket and offered one of their products to review, we couldn’t say no. USA Jacket are an online store that specialise in selling replica jackets worn by film and comic book characters with a wide variety to choose from.

We were sent the replica Star Wars jacket worn by John Boyega’s Finn in The Force Awakens (2015). Made from real leather with a viscose lining, the jacket is an impressive recreation of the one seen in the film. Analysing every inch it’s clear careful consideration has been put into ensuring every detail is correct from the ribbing down the sleeve to the strapping around the back. With three external pockets and two internal it gives the item a more practical feel meaning when worn out you’ll have storage for phones and wallets.

Expertly crafted, the stitching is clean and strong and feels like a product that would stand the test of time, surviving most weather types. I opted for a medium size, but upon wearing I found it a little baggy around the shoulders and waist with too much length in the sleeve, so would probably feel more comfortable with a smaller size, but would no doubt be a decent fit providing the correct size is chosen. USA Jacket do have a size guide so it definitely pays to make sure the jacket you select is as close to your measurements as possible. There are also adjustable straps around the sleeve cuffs allowing for an improved fit.

The jacket is obviously made to a high standard, but although it would be perfect for a Star Wars fan or someone who is planning on cosplaying or attending a fancy dress party, as an everyday jacket I did find it a little disappointing. I understand the lack of a front zip is to make it authentic to the original, but it would be beneficial for those cold days, even if it was hidden behind the material to maintain its appearance.

Overall the Star Wars Finn replica jacket from USA Jacket is a well crafted item that would satisfy most Star Wars fans, but if you’re looking for a new jacket to wear day to day it may be better to look elsewhere.

USA Jacket have a range of Star Wars Jackets available and can be found here.
