Rated 4 out of 5 by Fawcetti Pockets
I have worn this coat 4 or 5 times since I purchased it about a mounth ago. It is a great coat; however the pockets were not designed for keeping your hands warm. They should be set at a angle so you get your hands in same and they should be lined with wool and be deeper. Also the coat should have a pocket on the inside. I'm not happy about this design; pocket wise. Live and Learn.

I bought this coat for my husband who works construction. He really enjoys the pockets. He said between the coat pockets and his carpenter pants, he no longer needs his work pouches. Great every day coat. All purpose, holds up to work days and sharp enough to wear out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Malinaccier Like a Carhartt
Just like a Carhartt jacket. Wish the liner fit more tightly inside. The sleeves were a little longer than the fitting guide said...All in all a good coat--Primaloft is warm and it's decent looking.

My son loves this coat. So warm that he can wear a light shirt underneath so as not to be to hot in school. Great for his winter campouts as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rxdrug4u Superior Field Coat
This has to be the most Superior Field Coat in the market. If you want warmth and water resistant, this is the Jacket you have been looking for.
Iam completely satisfied with this purchase and would recommend it to everyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JDMash This is not a "warm to -25 degrees" coat
Nice jacket, comfortable, good cut & sizing (layering is easy - big arms, roomy body). Sleeve lining is a cold polyester material - wish it was flannel/cotton & thicker. Nice enough jacket, but I would not call this a winter coat - not by a long shot. I bought this when I lived in VA and it's barely warm enough for VA's moderate winters. I live in CT now & it definitely is not warm enough for CT cold. The jacket itself is very lightweight. The pockets are not lined & are quite cold - they don't even block the wind. There is no "storm flap" - the wind & cold come right through the openings between the buttons. I would say cold to about 35 degrees is about all this coat is good for if true comfort is what you're looking for. Tolerable comfort - meaning it's cold out & you'll feel it, but it'll be tolerable while leaving you wishing for a more protective, warmer coat - can be expected to about 25 degrees tops. Lined outer pockets, storm flap, a more wind-resistant shell, stand up collar, possibility for a lined hood attachment, larger interior pockets for storing hood, gloves, scarf, PDAs - then this coat might serve more purpose & be a 3-season coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gillyb Comfortable, colorful, warm
I had the original field coat with the cotten lining for 18 years!. It was warm, durable and comfortable. So, after 18 years, I decided to replace this coat with a coat I know I could rely on-so I went back to LL Bean to search for the same coat. This time I ordered the field coat with the primaloft lining because it is warmer and instead of the original tan color I ordered the red wine this time-a little more style. It is exactly as described. Warm, roomy and comfortable. On really cold days I can wear a hoodie under the coat for extra warmth and there is still plenty of room to move-not confining at all. I am soc security age and figured I need a warmer coat and based on how long the last LL Bean fieldcoat lasted this will be probably be the last one I buy. Also, when my adult son saw me wearing my new field coat he asked if he have the old one - he is enjoying it now. I was happy to hand it down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gipper011LLBeanShopper Original field coat a winner
I received this coat on Friday, 11/7/14 and immediately fell in love with it. It was exactly as advertised and very well made. I read through many of the reviews submitted by others and found most complaints to be nit picky or completely off base. Some complained that the liner attachment buttons were too small, at 3/4" I think they're more than adequate. Another complained that the buttons weren't sewn on well enough and would eventually pull through the fabric, and maybe a backing button would solve the problem, time will tell. Still another griped about the inner liner being cut too long and it protruded beyond the end of the sleeves, which on mine is not the case. Liner is very well attached and very warm. Another said the sizing wasn't right and mine was perfect for a 35" sleeve and a 44" chest.
When received it was pretty wrinkled up from packing and shipping but a few minutes time with a steam iron and a pressing cloth made it look perfect! And, BTW, I did the ironing, not my wife, so it couldn't have been too tough. My only complaint, chest pocket is worthless, way too small. I would rate the coat 4.5 overall and would buy again.
