Rated 5 out of 5 by SFox Great, Versatile Jac-Shirt
Selected the XL green jac-shirt. The jacket is not "scratchy", the wind proof liner is welcomed and not excessively "noisy", and the fit will accommodate layering beneath. I was particularly pleased the piece came with a metal zipper. The predicted plastic zipper was going to be the deal breaker if true.
My only complaint is minor - the sleeve lengths are too long yet will close nicely over gloves.
Great add for fall and winter wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RedlegShopper well made coat but sleeves are too long
Outstanding quality and finish but the sleeves are much too long. I did not want to risk alterations given the cuff design and decided to return the coat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rpage Love this Jacket
I asked my family for this red checkered jacket as a replacement for a light ski jacket that has seen its day. Right out of the package I loved the feel and nostalgic look (when I was a kid it's all we wore). The cut and feel are great I absolutely love it. The only reason I give 4 stars and not 5 is I 've only owned it a week. I'll raise it up as I wear it a while.

I love this coat for windy days. Within a week, it was my favorite jacket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MinnesotaRover Wool Jac Shirt Smell
I really like the cut and feel of the lined Jac-Shirt.
But!! I really DON'T LIKE the offensive odor of the wool. Smells like some chemical was imparted to finish the fabric or kill insects at the manufacturing/storage site. Can't seem to air the smell out either. If stored in a hall closet the smell overpowers the person who opens the closet door.
This needs to be fixed ASAP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChesterOutdoorsman Comfortable great fit
Good construction, no itch, wind stop definitely a plus. Tried the Maine Guide Zip front Jak-shirt without the lining but even the slightest breeze made it cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by slik14u Great short coat!
More of a coat than a shirt. The camo that I got is 15 oz wool where as the other colors are 10 oz. That weight coupled with the wind block membrain makes for one warm jacket. Fit is fine and the wind block is not really noisy as some polymer shields are so it make for a quiet jacket in the woods. I'm partial to wool anyway; keeps you warm even if wet and doesn't rustle and rattle like synthetics. Old school I guess!

Rated 3 out of 5 by TennesseeFarmer Decent but lacks important touches
This is a decent car coat, but I am disappointed with the cheap plastic zipper, lack of an inner pocket, and no tab at the collar for hanging. The zipper especially. For this price just a bit of extra care with the detail and heft would be appreciated. I would have been happy to pay five or ten more dollars. Slightly bulkier might also be nice as this is an outer coat for layering. I wouldn't want it to rip. Best worn with a heavy sweater for the coldest days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by drumbum Almost Perfect!
I bought the red/black plaid. Was skeptical after reading other reviews but glad I ordered it. I'm about 6'1" and the XL is a perfect fit. Sleeves are just the right length. Not too long. Not too short. Plenty of room for layering underneath. The 'noise' of the Windstopper lining is not a big deal. It serves its purpose by stopping the wind. Wore this in windy, near 0° temps and was completely comfortable. Don't know why they use shirt in the description. It is definitely a coat. My only complaint is there are no inside pockets and no loop for hanging on a coat hook. Other than that I?m 100% pleased.
