Vegan leather jackets (formerly called “pleather” or “faux leather” jackets) are now often cooler than the real thing. This rise of vegan leather comes in the wake of fashionistas and designers alike making efforts to end animal cruelty in the clothing industry.

Because of this movement, brands are upping their vegan leather game by offering high-quality jackets that look and feel just like the real deal. Plus, the vegan leather trend means much more affordable prices. To help find the perfect one, here are 10 of the best cruelty-free, eco-friendly “leather” jackets for men and women.


1. H&M Biker Jacket

H&M’s classic, straight-forward biker jacket is one of our favorites. For only $35, you get the quintessential leather jacket look, complete with a diagonal zip front, lapels, and moto-inspired accents.
