Rated 5 out of 5 by Birdwatch Beware of the sizes
I have a worn -out 15 year old khaki field coat and decided to purchase another one in the color of "Olive". I ordered the same size, which is "large". Large is now extra-large as we knew it several years ago.. The coat was far too big. The sleeves were hanging beyond my outstretched fingertips.
This size change represents a microcosm of obese American society. Obesity is truly a national problem and it now is reflected in the purchase of clothing.
My local LL Bean store graciously accepted my return and ordered a medium. LL Bean is always a pleasure to do business with and a great place to shop for top quality clothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greg60563 Even the buttons!
I'd worn it for 8 or 10 years and when I'd already exhausted the one replacement button for the front placket, Bean was nice enough to send me two replacement buttons so I would have a spare again. No cost, no shipping charge. I AM A CUSTOMER FOR LIFE, thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ardenmare Great Coat, almost perfect
Got it for my husband. Excellent Coat, he loves it. I'd have given 5 stars except that I had to sew all the buttons back on in the first two months he wore it. Every time he turned around another one fell off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by moonsie43 Field Jacket problem
Coat is great and even warm and heavy in cold weather. I don't like it because left sleeve lining comes out beyond jacket and I can't pull it back inside the coat. This makes the jacket look poorly made .Right sleeve is normal and I do not have a prroblem with it. Good coat for price but expected better from LL Beam

Great coat, quality and style. Classic style and my husband loves it. Great fit for a sweater or sweatshirt underneath. Can wear anywhere dress up or dress down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dktg Christmas gift
Purchased for Christmas gift for my retired husband. As we live in the Lowcountry. (close to Charleston, SC) we don't need heavy coats/sweaters very often. He loves it and it looks/fits true to size. I love the look of it especially cause it's casual and he can wear it around the house and yard! Haven't washed it yet but will update when we do to let you know about durability. He likes all the pockets available. We both like the color (deep wine)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hels Wanted heavier field coat but on back order so...
Settled for this one. Just as nice in appearance but not as warm.

Quite pleased with the coat. Fits perfectly and is comfortable to wear and move my arms. Doesn't feel bulky or stiff. The coat was back ordered but it was delivered a week earlier than promised.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mommatomase Nice coat
This is a great spring and fall coat. However, not thick enough for the winter months. I thought it would be heavier than it is, but I can always return it.
