Rated 5 out of 5 by DCBTwo from Great Travel Jacket! I bought this jacket in anticipation of a spring business trip to the East Coast and Europe, for which I needed "one coat" for a combination of business and touring purposes. The coat was fantastic! The temperatures varied from the mid 40's to the mid 60's (F). We walked for miles on end during the trip, and I always was comfortable. Sometimes I wore a light sweater underneath, but often I wore just the coat with a light shirt. The multiple and secure pockets made traveling easy. The coat could be packed quickly in my carry on, and never looked wrinkled when I took it out. I highly recommend this coat!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rmat from Travel Jacket? Not a travel jacket: Too bulky and heavy for me to consider this a travel jacket. The fabric is heavy cotton and takes a lot of space in luggage. It does have reasonable water "repellency" but not rain wear. The fit is great--I'm 5'9" 175# and the medium fits well--there are nice gussets on the back shoulder area, the pockets are well placed and numerous. It is well made but pay attention to what others have said about the snaps. They are awkward. If this were a lighter weight fabric--one of the many breathable water repellent varieties--it would be hard to find a better travel coat. As it is, I regretfully returned it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Metroman from Questionable form, fit, and function Just received the jacket this afternoon. Since Bean outerwear tends to be generously cut, I ordered the Bean Travel Jacket a size down from my normal medium (I am 5'7", 150 lbs) and purchased a size small. Even by sizing down, I found the jacket to be hyper-boxy and ill fitting to say the least. The outer shell uses the same fabric as in the LL Bean Nor-Easter product line of outerwear. As such, this travel jacket is very stiff and feels like you are wearing a garment made corrugated cardboard with a micro-sueded finish. The zippers are a bit cheesy and the button-snaps are poorly designed (they can be difficult to snap and unsnap). I have sent the jacket back to LL Bean for a refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Railwalker from Best jacket ever With a fleece jacket underneath, you can wear this coat in a blizzard. Without a similar lining, it is perfect for fall and spring excursions. Pockets are ample for gloves, dog leash, and any other items carried on daily jaunts. The double zipper is ideal for sitting in a vehicle, making it easy to cool off, or to zip up as soon as you're outside. The collar contains a light hood, ample to protect you from wind, even with a broad hat, yet is thin enough not to be bulky when rolled and zipped. Nice enough to wear "out" for social events, long enough to cover a sport jacket for those still so obligated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Websterguy from Classic Military Field Jacket An enduring classic, similar to the armed forces field jacket I was issued in the 1960s, with rugged snaps and other military-grade construction details. Personally I'd prefer a snap-on hood of the same silky-tough water-resistant fabric; the hideaway hood thickens the collar so that when stood up--as shown on website and in catalog--it presses against my neck. Still, it looks great, is extremely functional and versatile, and will be the jacket I'll be likely to grab on the way out the door--whether in Paris, St. Louis, or New York--for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Newrider44 from Search is over I've been searching for a jacket like this for years to replace a long worn out military field coat. I photograph horse shows and this coat has all the on person storage I could ever need. From chilly early morning rounds to evening the coat is perfect. First ordered a large based on reviews but i was swimming in it (5'-7" 165 lbs usually wear a short). Reordered in a medium and it fits fine. Love the dual metal zipper feature but could do without the hood and will probably cut it out as I usually wear a large brimmed hat in the field anyway. Overall very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MilesSmiles from Hey Now! I haven't worn it outside yet (it's' Feb. 17, 2016#, however, I tried it on as soon as I received it and it's a great fit #Large - I'm 5'9 about 175 to 180 lbs# the draw strings assure that as well, but it's the color I chose. I chose the Kelp Green and it's beautiful. It's the color of the old Army Field Jacket which I hoped it was and it is. Would 'Olive Green' be a better description to use by LL Bean, Probably. Whatever, it works for me. Man o Man I'm a happy camper and I have no doubt that if I wear it with the appropriate layer#s# the jacket will do it's job and keep me comfortable or warm and dry #especially this time of the year#. Wepa!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mik3e from This is one Darn Good Jacket The fabric weight is about the same as my cotton work shirts, and good for this purpose. The hood was rolled into the collar pocket at the factory and is quite a lump. The solution is to roll it out, fold it, and put it back in flat. The snaps are tight and need a little graphite on a Q-tip, the zipper needs it too. If the snaps are still tight, insert the business end of long nose pliers, open the pliers against the snap ring to expand it (CAUTION: it doesn't take much). My only quibble is unnecessary Velcro on the inside patch pockets, which is easily removed. The only modification will be something I often do, add eyelets to the tops of several pockets so I can tie in important stuff, like spare keys, compass, and mini flashlight. Thanks, Bean, for the jacket.
