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.

This jacket is a classic design especially in the iconic black and red check. It's smart looking and warm and toasty on chilly days and nights. I keep mine hanging on the coat rack and throw it on when walking the dog or stepping outside for something. The jacket is easily functional from fall to early spring. It's roomy so on bitter days I wore it over a wool crew and it was perfect. It's well made and the Windblocker lining is a great feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MuddyMutt Great Jacket!!
I had to wait for this jacket because it was back ordered. Totally worth it. Warm, easy to slide your arms in out, stylish, good pockets.
Great for bringing in firewood, walking the dog, and working in the yard.

Fit is true to size, provides excellent warmth, receive lots of positive feedback from potential customers and am very satisfied with purchase. However, would have liked some inside pockets for my electronic gadgets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MCG1776 Great Jac-Shirt
This is a really nice looking jac-shirt. As many have said already, the sizes run a bit large. I'm 5'10", 170 and a consistent medium at L.L. Bean, but for this item, I had to exchange the medium for a small--the sleeves were just too long. The small fits me perfectly. That said, it's otherwise a great jacket.The windstopper does make a bit of noise but it's not a deal-breaker. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Allfieldnohit Forget Jacket, This is a Coat
This is heavyweight, you'll feel it as soon as you put it on. It's a coat, no doubt. Forget Jacket or shirt, not even close.
Love the wool, although 85% not as good as 100%, just saying.
Two front 'shirt' pockets and two front 'jacket' pockets, haha. Game pocket in the back zippered on wearer's left side.
Speaking of zippers, the main one in the front is formidable and durable. It won't break soon.
Wool is doubled over the shoulders which is part of it's weightiness.
No inside pockets, shame about that.
Collar can be turned up to the wind. Like that.
The windstopper is noisy and hunters will not like it, but it's fine for anyone else that doesn't need stealth capabilities.
Quality stitching, just what you'd expect from Bean.
As with most Bean stuff, it runs large. I got a medium which is a large by anyone else. Still a little big for me, I'm 5'11'" 175 lbs.
Actually perfect because you can layer beneath it.
For a hundred and a half this is an excellent value, also.
Don't give it another thought, just buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SalemMikeAgain Exactly What I Wanted
I bought this jacket as a daily wear jacket for the winter. It is comfortable with room for layering. I am 6' 210 lbs and the XL is perfect. The sleeves are a tad long, which I like. If you are buying one of these for hunting, the Windstopper lining is a bit noisy. Especially if you are bow hunting. It looks great with jeans or my business casual work clothes. I bought the Malone plaid and have had numerous compliments already. I love wool. I think I'll be wearing this for a long time. I recommend this jacket.
