The main zipper is a TALON brand zipper. Overall conditon is very very good, no tears, rips, holes, the lining is intact, the pockets are intact, all zippers and snaps intact and working.However the belt has been removed. If you are a purist you can actually send the jacket to schott and they can put a new belt on it. Although the belt was removed because its actually very unusual that you ever use the belt. Zipping the jacket is more than sufficient and the belt does not really get used often and sometimes can get in the way. In fact a lot of modern schott leathers now have a feature added to keep your belt "out of the way" rather than it hanging down because the buckle often damages the paint on the gas tanks of motorcycles. So getting rid of the belt is sometimes done since it serves no purpose and tends to get in the way. The patina on this is perfect, its an even vintage patina all over the jacket. The kind of patina you can only get from age and use.
