Rated 5 out of 5 by Nessmuck3 Warm, well-made and sensible.
Great hunting or woods jacket for cool & cold weather. Roomy, with thick wool/synthetic (mostly wool) fabric. Scratchy on bare skin, so wear a long-sleeved shirt or layers under, but fabric is quiet and warm in the woods. Zipper is high-quality, and the extra cape over shoulders & chest holds in body heat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PeteinME I just bought this jacket
I agree with other reviewers.. it's a great quality jacket that's 1/2 size too large. Just curious.. has anyone tried to wash the jacket in a washing machine versus going to the dry cleaners? How did you do it, and how did it turn out?

My maternal granddad ALWAYS wore his wool shirt when we picked up pecans from our grove as a boy. I loved tha shirt I wore it after his passing till I could not fit into it . I looked for years,and then I saw the shirt @ LLBean's;and that was that. We have had a very harsh winter as the nation as a whole. Thank goodness I chose LLBean's shirt jac . If you want QUALITY, you have to pay...end of story. Sincerely Yours, M.L.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wilton Needs a liner
This is a handsome jacket. However, because it is wool, it really needs a lining. Too scratchy. Disappointed that I had to return it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by watchhunter Could have been
Would have been acceptable if it had a metal zipper and if the wool was thicker. Instead a $120 jacket was supplied with a cheap plastic zipper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by busymomthreeboys Great fit
Purchased this jacket for my 17 year old son who likes to spend a lot of time in the woods. He has worn this on rainy days and nights below 10 degrees, and now this is his favorite jacket. I love the fit and length, he is very pleased!

Gift for husband. Although this looked great on, it was unwearable. ITCHY wool, like a brillo pad around the neck and wrists. They should have lined the neck and cuffs with fleece, then it would have been nice. Too bad.

Rated 4 out of 5 Well made, could use a nylon liner
Well constructed. Would be nice if they added a nylon liner to the inside. I had to decide between this one or the one with windshear lining. I would just like one with a nylon liner. Wool is very nice and tailoring is good.

Merry Christmas to me! I have wanted wool camo clothing for years but it's typically super expensive and hard to find. I received the Maine Guide Zip-front Jac-shirt for Christmas and I am very impressed. Good camo pattern. Good quality wool. Great fit (I ordered a large after trying the XL which was too big). Very high quality for the price! I can't wait to get to the woods in it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by oldwindknot sweet wool shirt/jacket
To begin, I am 5'6" tall 145 lbs. I bought the small.
After a lot of research, I bought the jack-shirt in the Malone style at my wife's insistance. The red lines are subdued and so it looks very nice and conservative. I agree with other reviewers that the sizing is off. I expected it to be cut fulll in the body which it is allowing for layering, but the sleeve length is more for an orangutan. I have taken it to a tailor to have the sleeves shortened. $20. I presume Bean cuts the sleeves long so that the user can shorten them to suit the size. The wool weight is perfect for my intended use which is general and deer hunting in Northern California. In October the weather in the woods is cool in the morning and a wool jacket allows for quiet movement as well as adequate warmth. The liners in the hand pockets are obscenely soft on the back of the hands, which is good.
I would recommend that they put a two way zipper on the jacket so when I sit on a tree stump, I do not have to unzip it.
