Rated 3 out of 5 by sfcharlie Odd sizing
For maybe the last 35 years, the size, shirt, jacket, or coat that fit me were either Medium or Large--as is the case with everything else I've purchased this year.. I had to return this jacket in medium because it was much too large. Small was out of stock -- not surprised, since it seems likely to actually be the size of most brand's mediums. But if you end up with one that fits you well, then it is a decent value for the price.

This is the latest of many LLB Field Coats I've owned over the years and I keep buying them which is in itself a testimonial of sorts....I like the light weight (compared to the zip out lined version) which makes it great for doing yard work in early Spring as you won't overheat easily......I do wish the zippered breast pocket was a little bigger as it barely accommodates my credit card sized wallet. I also think an inside zippered security pocket that would fit a smart phone would be a good addition. Overall I'm pleased and I'm sure I'll buy another sometime in the future.

I ordered this jacket in a large and it was shipped as a large. Apparently the sizes run larger than normal so it was returned for an exchange [size "M"].
I received an update informing me it had been received but nothing about an exchange.
To date I have not received an exchange replacement. Apparently know one read the instructions on the return sheet which clearly indicated the return was for an exchange as well as the reason for the exchange.
Looks like this one fell thru the cracks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by worsehorseplayerever Fine field coat
Still trying to adjust to the no inside pocket and the odd outer pockets. Other than that the coat looks and feels just fine, and is also great in cold to moderate temperatures.

This is my 3rd cotton-lined field coat from LL Bean purchased over the last 18 years. I have always been pleased with them. I wear a size Large (44 chest) and it fits me perfectly. The fit also allows for a sweater to be worn as a base layer on colder days.
I have always ordered the Saddle colored coat, but wish it was just a shade darker. I agree with other customers that the small chest pocket is almost useless. The coat needs to be updated with interior secured pockets which could be used to hold a cell phone or keys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CodeGuySanDiego Such a great coat!
This is such a perfect, all-weather coat!
I bought The Original Field Coat, Cotton-Lined in men's large (L).
Fits loosely enough to wear a hoodie or fleece underneath in really cold weather, or just a t-shirt most days...with a little extra room.
I'm no small guy. I'm 6'2" and 265lbs on a good day. I have big shoulders and big arms and a little wide around the middle, but not disproportionate. More of a square-torso, than a pear, I guess.
Love, love, love it! Thank you for another great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jockman Absolutely Great Light Coat!
It's everything I would expect from L.L. Bean. It's made very well, inside as well as outside. The nylon lining in the sleeves is very much appreciated. The cotton lining inside of the coat is great and adds a little more protection from the cold. The large exterior pockets are very nice. I was taught at an early age to "Layer" my clothing, so this is just what I was wanting. This light jacket fits very well for this "Long Armed" old boy. Couldn't like anymore than I do.

I previously owned the barn coat with the wool liner and after 15+ years it was thread bare. I then purchased the waxed barn coat with thinsulate liner 15 years ago and still wear it in cold weather. Needing a lighter weight coat for milder temperatures I purchased the cotton lined version. Perfect fit right our of the box, comfortable and high quality workmanship. Great purchase!
