Mass Effect fans have been wishing for the N7 Leather Jacket to be real ever since it was introduced in Mass Effect 3. Well, the wait is finally over!
That gorgeous moto-style jacket with a beautifully “subdued” N7 style colorway has finally hit the BioWare Store.
Treehouse Brand Stores was gracious enough to allow us to borrow the prototype to bring you this review. SPOILER ALERT: It’s gorgeous.
As I stated in the video, I am extremely excited about this jacket. I am even more excited about the fact that it was replicated with quality and accuracy in mind. The N7 leather jacket will be a limited run of 600 and is made of soft high quality lambskin leather. It honestly feels softer than my own lambskin leather jacket. I’m not sure how I feel about that…ANYways. The lambskin leather also makes this jacket quite a bit lighter than expected, which makes it that much more comfortable during everyday use. I should know, I wore it for days and may or may not have slept in it.
The N7 leather jacket was designed through a partnership between Treehouse Brands Stores, The BioWare Development Team, and a North American manufacturer that makes high quality apparel (Ex: Ferrari). The jacket has two pockets, left and right, on the exterior and one inside pocket on the left, perfect for your “deal with it” shades. The jacket sports a heavy duty metal zipper with a custom N7 zipper pull. It comes with a certificate of authenticity and a garment bag with the N7 logo embroidered on the front. I have included a photo of the certificate, but please note that the certificates that come with the jackets will most likely be on a different high quality card stock.
As expected, a leather jacket of this quality will always come with a price to reflect. The N7 leather jacket will cost $475 and come with a voucher for $58 to spend in the BioWare store, which happens to be the exact price of the N7 Armour Stripe Mk-II hoodie. You know, the OTHER item that just happens to be available in-game in Mass Effect 3.
When it comes to a high quality leather jacket (not to mention a very limited run), this price may be deep but it’s not unjustified. The N7 leather jacket is designed to impress and built to last. We here at The Game Fanatics are extremely excited for those of you who get your hands on this exclusive item. I personally, hope to be one of you.
