Jackets of 2015 have wicked style according to Back to the Future 2. First, jackets can change their form in order to fit the wearer, but very few people take advantage of that. Why is that you ask? Because the coolest kids wear their jacket sleeves baggy to match the hip look of having their pockets inside out. But what really makes 2015 jackets amazing is their ability to power dry once wet. This one comes straight from the year 2015 and while this officially licensed jacket can't actually self dry, we're still holding out hope that some wild-eyed scientist will take up the cause so such a thing can finally come to us in the future. See, Back to the Future is still inspiring our hopes and dreams for a better tomorrow.

It definitely does it's job of having the look of the jacket from BTTFII and most people will recognize it as such easily. A more diehard fan/collector might not be enthused with its liberties that were taken, but I for one am!
The jacket is packaged with a printed "Sports Almanac" that when I removed it from the front area of the jacket where it was placed the "almanac" left part of its printing on the jacket. I remedied this easily enough with a damp towel although some slight traces of ink are still there. Maybe add a sheet of tissue inbetween the two during packaging?(took away 1 star for this)
Yet, having the replica "Sports Almanac" (which actually has 4 interior pages printed!) and the "You're Fired" fax with the jacket is a cool bonus.
The jacket fits great and is actually comfortable and warm! There are no functional pockets and yet I'm okay with that.
Overall it's perfect for the price and will definitely recommend this for the casual BTTF Fan!!
...now where did I leave my Hoverboard?
-Received as a gift from my awesome wife
-Fairly accurate jacket for cosplay without having to spend $900 for custom fabrication of material
-Paper Cosplay items are fun additions
-Sports almanac stuck to coat and left white marks on it (glad that I read previous review that prepared me for it), cleaned with damp paper towel
+As soon as I made my order I received confirmation, a few hours later the item was already packaged and I received it exactly the date they told me.
+Great quality, brand new stuff exactly as described.
I'm gonna have the best halloween party ever...THANKS !!!
+Sports Almanac & "You're Fired" fax props are nice bonuses.
-Collar, Sleeves and Waist are not elastic so a little tight for a MEDIUM size jacket.
Monster Responds...Thank you for this review, I'm happy to hear you're satisfied with the jacket! Now all you need is a DeLorean....
My jacket of future arrived! He is magnificent! Very well reproduced as the one that wears Marty in the BTTF 2 movie, even if he has no pockets (some improvements has to make) ;) he is well enough reproduced, a good jacket for a cosplay BTTF, and for 21.10. 2015.
Btw for those that try to compare BTTF II's 2015 future with our 2015 keep in mind Marty left his timeline from the start and his 2015 is an alternate time line not our 2015 at all! Also they arrive on Oct 21st 2015.
The best part is that it came with a replica copy of the "Sports Almanac" and a copy of the Future McFly print out sheet telling Marty "Your Fired". Just like the one shown in the movie. These were clever ad ons which didn't increase the price of the Jacket.
I also like that this an official licensed costume. It was worth the low cost!
+ The jacket looks exactly like the movie version
+ The sleeves are perfect
+ Perfect fit
- No pockets
- Many other reviews said that it came with the "FIRED" fax paper and the "Sports Almanac", but mine did not come with those things. I looked all through the packaging and the box, but didn't see them...
- A minor note, the box was very poorly packaged and a but beaten up, although the items inside were fine.
