Rated 5 out of 5 by BillInMA Love the jacket
Love this jacket! Love how rugged it is. I have worn it in our cooler fall weather, from 50 down to about 25 or so. I have NOT worn this is the rain or any precipitation yet. Looking forward to trying this out this winter.
I purchased the jacket as a general outdoors jacket-something I can take my walks in town in, or take it into the woods hiking, birding, etc.
As to those who complained about buttons and pocket locations:
First, buttons simply work. I prefer buttons over zippers. Buttons vent a little better (layering under this jacket will definitely be used in bitter cold), and they dont freeze. I will agree that the buttons do seem to be sewn on a little too flimsy, but I can reinforce those myself.
As to the pockets-they arent really meant for handwarmer pockets. They DO, however, hold a lot of stuff. The breast pocket is too small for almost anything (I put my keys in there), but the other 4 work well for gloves, snacks, etc.
Overall, I highly recommend this jacket. The liner, though thin, works surprisingly well. And, the quality is there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jsd52Dmd My old coat
I don?t normally take time to write reviews on products, but this coat has been the best garment that I have ever owned.
My wife purchased it for my birthday in 1986 and it is now 30 yers old.
It is still the coat I pull out when I feel a chill I ware it often.
The quality shows in the wearing, washing and use over the years, still looks great.
Last year my wife decided to buy me a new coat for Christmas, but purchased another brand similar in looks, (mistake) it is not quality and very hard on the skin, not like my good old LLbean. Well I am now 64 and I will never need to buy any other coat, as my old coat is the best ever coat. I don?t believe that any one would go wrong with the purchase of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WSM73 My bad
I ordered this jacket for a light weight go to, for the milder times of a Tennessee Fall and Winter. Unfortunately, it wasn't what I was expecting ... my bad. I called LLBean and as always the staff was so easy to get along with and more than willing to help me return the jacket while ordering something that better suited my needs. The quality of the coat was more than expected, just not what I wanted and considering the outstanding customer service I still give this coat and LLBean 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ljoe Just what I needed
As usual with my LL Bean purchases, received exactly as advertised. Great weight coat and with removable lining, makes it a 3 season coat. The length is long enough to help keep your back pockets warm in cold weather. Flapped pockets make a great place to carry winter gloves or you can use the slash pockets as hand warmers. The material is sturdy enough to last many, many years yet allows freedom of movement.
Had a pair of hiking boots from Bean that finally wore out after 17 years and still had the original boot strings. That is what I call quality. If the coat lasts that long I won't be surprised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SAAM Great work coat
I ordered this coat for my husband. It will work very well to keep him warm once it gets cold down here in south Texas. The coat is a nice weight - not too heavy. The wool liner is nice and easily removable. I am happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KeepinItSimple Timeless field coat is the perfect gift!
Ordered this field coat for a friend. Just what he was looking for! Warm, durable and comfortable. He says he is now ready for another Ohio winter. I am so happy that I got such a great deal by using my accumulated "reward coupons" earned with my LLBean credit card. Ordering experience was great. Coat arrived quickly and in perfect condition.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TimNY Off color
I purchased this coat thinking it was the color displayed on the website but when it came in the mail today I opened up the package to find the coat wasn't olive but grey with a SLIGHT hint of green. I was excited to wear this coat all the time but now I'm having second thoughts. Very well made otherwise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LoboImages Not As Good As My Old One
Weather here in Texas has a while before it turns cold enough for my new coat.When it does, Fits well and I'm certain it will keep me warm. It is made well and I'm sure it will will last me for many years. The only negative I have is the coarseness of the material. I wish the material was a little more refined and fitting for casual use as well as work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NorthGAcustomer Great overall everyday jacket
Great overall everyday jacket running in/out of cold weather, picking up kids, etc. Multiple pockets handy for all sorts of items the task at hand demands. Only wish breast pocket was deep and more secure for smartphone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by owlmonitor Great jacket, but...
This jacket is well made, warm, and just what I was looking for, but I'm a woman and it's too large. However since I couldn't find anything else that I liked as well (fabric, color, removable wool liner) I altered it by shortening the sleeves 3 inches. I wish they made a women's version or a men's extra small. A hood would be great too. In spite of those shortcomings I find that I am using the jacket for just about everything. It's warmer than I would have thought, and roomy enough for a vest underneath on really cold days.
