Rated 5 out of 5 by Smackwater Excellent Fit
At six feet, 155 pounds, getting a coat to fit is often a problem: I need the shoulder room and sleeve length (34/35 inch), but not room for chest or belly. The medium, regular in this coat proved a perfect fit, even over a wool sweater. Hand warmer pockets are at a perfect angle. An inside pocket would have been welcome. The large storage pocket at the back--not visible on web pictures--is accessed by an unobtrusive side zipper, thereby enhancing appearance for everyday wear. The metal zipper works smoothly. As soon as I slipped it on, my apprehensions vanished!

I own this in the Malone plaid. I ordered a Small and it fits perfectly. I weigh 180 lbs. and 5'9" tall. Tried fitting into a Medium, but it was too roomy, and sleeves were way too long. The Small is very nice even with layering! I hope this helps others wondering how it fits! JUST ORDERED the Camouflage. Love those morning walks in the cold with this jacket. By the way, the Windstopper is very effective!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LeotheTrumpetPlayer Great, Rugged, 3 1/2 Season Jacket
I received this jacket in dark green as a birthday present from my mother-in-law six weeks ago. It is, quite possibly the best jacket I have every owned. At first glance, it seems too light to be for anything but spring and fall wear, but I have found that to be untrue. The jacket is surprisingly warm, probably due to the windstopper lining. The fit is loose and comfortable, with plenty of room for layering. Not only does the windstopper ease the breeze, but it also acts as a liner, preventing sweaters and flannel shirts from getting caught in the sleeves. The pockets are roomy and lined with soft fleece. The cape-like double layer of wool on the shoulders, keeps me dry in all but the heaviest rain. I have no doubt that this jacket will be a close friend for many years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FrancisC very nice
True to size, I am a large regular, and I can fit a nice size layer under this jacket. It has many uses, a great layer under a hunting or ski jacket. I have already cleaned out my closet and this will be my new every day jacket. LLBean again has given us a great product. The only thing that it is missing is a hook loop to hang it on.

Rated 3 out of 5 by pluran Needs Taffeta Lining
I love many things about the jacket, but I rarely wear it. The lining pulls on the layer you're wearing underneath the jacket. I hate that. Such an easy fix with a light layer of taffeta. Hard to believe it hasn't already been done.

Being tall and lanky always presents problems when buying clothes. I first bought the large/tall version of this jacket but it was way too big in the chest and even arms. I generally wear a 15 x 35 or 36 shirt if I can find it! Customer service suggested I try the regular, medium in the Maine Guide jacket and it fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 wind stopper
I bought this coat to wear to outdoor events, football games etc., and have found it to be a perfect cold weather cover. It blocks chill new england winds, fits great and looks good too. I chose the red version. (I still wear my 30 year old LL Bean field jacket when it rains.)
