Rated 4 out of 5 by Railroaderretired from Great Jacket if the Zipper works, I had problems Update: It was raining today and the jacket worked like a champ! It is light weight, quite flexible material I stayed dry and warm. The Zipper worked perfectly so I am giving the overall rating 4 stars. I am holding back one star because of the problems with the other two and the fact that the zipper could be better. This last coat seems better overall than the other two. I do not know why the zipper wouldn't work very well the first time but as I said, Today it worked quite well. I hope that it stays that way. I like the Jacket a lot. I tried uploading a couple of photo's of the coat after I returned from my walk but for some reason they wouldn't post.

Rated 4 out of 5 by frostysno7 from High end without the sticker shock This jacket is very reminiscent of the high-end Very expensive (>$500) designer wax cotton jackets. Made with British Millerain fabric (wish there was an authenticity patch) this jacket is unbeatable! I agree with previous reviews the front zipper oddly malfunctioned at first. Now it seems to work fine and I would recommend a small leather pull tab to help. Truly for the price I wouldn't hesitate. Great fall, winter, and first week of spring jacket. Fit is good with enough room in the chest to move and to layer one hoodie. Arm length is perfect so raising the arms don't expose inches of wrist. Cuffs are good size to accommodate gloves. Stop reading and just buy the jacket it's a winner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EasyAces from I REALLY like the jacket, BUT.. I REALLY like the jacket, BUT.. I have a small fitting issue also, as many others here do. I'm, 5'10 1/2, 160 lbs. and I wear a medium jacket. I can wear this but it is just a bit snug. I'm afraid if I got a large it would be too big for me. The designers of this jacket seem to have taken a medium shell and built all the insulation and lining onto the inside of that rather than taking a medium lining and added everything on the outside of it. I am keeping it.. looks like it's going to be just the ticket for the cold, damp days ahead, and it is a handsome, well-made jacket! I'm just going to have to pay attention to my diet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TheFamousMockingbird from Comfortable, great features, minor drawbacks This is definitely a stylish jacket that fits me (5'8, 180lbs., size M) quite nicely, with room for a midweight layer underneath. I agree with many of the other reviews in that the main zipper simply needs some improvement, but I've almost gotten used to it. The only other negative is that it is a lint / dust magnet (I have it in the brown). With regard to temperature range, i've definitely found its limit. With a midweight layer underneath, the coldest I would try to wear this would be mid-thirties. All in all great product that I love wearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MAOutsider from Down with style and durability First impression was that I was sent the wrong color, the dark khaki is a very dark brown, almost black. From what I read in other reviews, someone should be adjusting the pictures shown online and in the catalog. I was outdoors before I could tell it was a very dark brown, not black. The jacket is well made, I ordered the large tall to get a little extra length and very glad I did, the tall seems like it should be average length. I am 5'11" and 200lbs, and this fits me very well. Overall, very comfortable and warm, out all day and late evening with temperatures below 20 and no cold gets in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RandallWinsorFarm from Made my son very happy! My son was looking for a jacket he could wear in cold and drizzly conditions and that could dress up his college kid wardrobe a bit. I ordered this jacket for him to try out and he loves it. Warm, waterproof, very nice looking for the utility of it. The fleece lined hand warmer pockets were what cinched the deal for him! Sturdy construction and many great features. I was able to buy his during a 25% off sale, but certainly represents a good value. He is 6’1” and 170 lbs, 32 waist, 35 sleeve, 39 tall suit coat. We got him a large, because he usually needs the sleeve length, and it fits him nicely, with room inside for a bulky layer underneath, but the body is not way too loose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Captain784 from Cold weather test Received your mail yesterday asking if I would like to review my new jacket. This morning seemed like it would be a good day for a cold weather test. The temperature was 16.5 degrees when I left the house. The wind was gusting between 5 & 15 MPH. I was dressed in my Upcountry Down Jacket with a cotton sweatshirt underneath. I walked for one and a half miles which took about 1 hour. When I got home my digital thermometer read 18.2. The jacket kept me warm every inch of the way. The waxed cotton shell easily deflected the wind and the corduroy lined collar kept the breeze from blowing down my neck. It is hard to find a coat with a real collar these days. This jacket is well designed and made. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys being outdoors in the winter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CTGARDENER from Disappointment Purchased this jacket to replace a waxed coat that simply worn out. Big disappointment with this waxed jacket. First of all, the sizing is drastically off. My husband is always a size large but this was too big across the shoulders, arms were hanging past his hands and it was snug around the middle. It's also too short. We were very disappointed by the jacket offerings this year from Bean which has been our go to place for years. The barn coat's pockets are just too strange for us. Have to wait for next year's crop I'm afraid.
