Rated 5 out of 5 Great coat; just what I was looking for.
This is a great coat. Warm, comfortable, good fit. I only wish it had been available in tan but only green was available in my size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BonTempsRoule Great jacket except for the pockets
Got mine last winter, this is a one year review. Love this jacket, warm enough for most days, if too cold I layer and it is fine. My only criticism are the pockets which are not very functional. I don't know if this is the original design (supposed to be a hunting jacket) but the jacket would improve if it had hand warming pockets underneath larger square pockets, and a functional chest pocket - the current one is mostly cosmetic. Inside pocket in the liner would also help.
LL Bean - please consider redesigning the pockets OR manufacturing another jacket in same material with modern pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by adamslc3 comfortable and warm
Very comfortable and keeps you nice and warm on a cold day. Also you can remove the liner for when its not so cold. Overall a very nice, comfortable, warm and versatile jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jurgen Excellent Jacket
It is a very good jacket; good cloth, great color and well made. However, it doesn't fit me well and the style is not what I thought it would be so I sent it back. I rated it as excellent. It's just not excellent for me. Since years we enjoy LLBean and it's quality. Now for the first time as far as I can remember we had to send something back. Now I greatly appreciate LLBean's return policy also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Edgerton Back to an Old Favorite
I have two of these coats for the last 20, years, still wearing one of them and gave the older one to homeless recently. I decided to get another one in a different color from the others, hinted around and my bride got me a new one for Christmas. I had ordered a size smaller first with a different lining and realized it was too small and I still needed to get an Extra Large and liked the wool lining better. The folks at L.L. Bean took great care of me again and made the swap. Plan to wear my new coat for the first time tonight at our Church's CHRISTMAS EVE service. Merry Christmas to the folks at L.L. Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RareRater6 What I Wanted
This coat is exactly what I wanted - plenty warmth with lots of room to reach and move. I'm 6' so I got the tall, and it was the correct choice for me. The button-out wool liner is great. It has the "old world" feel I was looking for. I rarely rate anything, but this coat is superb so I felt I should.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nmhokie1 Too Many Changes
I bought this same jacket about twenty years ago but lost the liner. I finally got tired of waiting for the jacket to go on sale so I bought another one. The jacket is great but the changes have not been for the best... The exterior pockets are different and my Mini-iPad won't stay in the outside pockets anymore. The smaller "handwarmer pockets" barely hold my sunglasses.
Being resourceful, I have solved my problems by removing the liner from the new jacket sand buttoning it into the old, faded, and frayed jacket. Now I have a winter coat that is warm but looks like the horses used it for tug-of-war and a brand new jacket that will probably be great for late spring and early fall.
By the way, they won't sell just a liner or I would have gone in that direction.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JohnDeere55 I've owned this Field Cost for years now ...
... so I consider myself to have a qualified opinion about it. It's pretty good overall but it could be better.
1# Three buttons in the front #four if you count the neck) is not enough; there needs to be four available for everyday use in order to keep the chill at bay.
2) The front outside buttons need to be of better quality; all of these buttons on my coat have begun to chip and crack.
3) The backside of the buttons on the inside of the coat need to be secured with more than a small piece of fabric. Normal use of the buttons on my coat caused one of them to eventually pull through, creating a hole in the coat material. I just spent an hour replacing the buttons and secured them with small buttons on the inside so that further damage to the fabric won't occur.
4) The button holes that hold the liner in place need more reinforcement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GJD1142 Was looking for a "new" old coat...
Have been looking at the Field Coat for about a year. I have had one for 20+ years that is beginning to show a little age! Was concerned that the replacement would not be of the same quality and standards of the original.
New coat arrived in FOUR shipping days. I have been wearing it since; very pleasantly surprised. All of the original features have been retained PLUS PrimaLoft lining in the sleeves.
Very satisfied with this coat; warmth, fit and comfort. It is reassuring that some things that really work are kept available-with LL BEAN this seems to be more common than most.
