Rated 4 out of 5 by silva great jacket if you are short
Very handsome jacket except for the torso length. Sleeve length is fine (I have long arms too). It is also bulky, not flattering at all. I was looking for function, not form, so the bulk didn't bother me- but if you are looking for a fitted jacket, keep looking. That said, if you are looking for a warm, attractive jacket and you don't mind the short length, this is a great choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EmFin Comfortable, Stylish, and So Warm !
After going back and forth trying to decide between traditional down (which is very warm but the usual nylon outer is not that durable and not really waterproof) and a heavier canvas type jacket, I was pleasantly surprised to find this coat! I immediately liked the style and the color options- I got dark brown. I love the fact that it has the warmth of down and also the waterproof qualities of the waxed cotton. It is a bit heavier than a normal down jacket, however. It's my new favorite coat! The Best of both worlds!

Rated 4 out of 5 by HikesforHounds Please make a longer version of this coat
I do like this coat/jacket. It's hard to find a waterproof/resistant, waxed jacket that is down filled and doesn't snag briars or get damaged in the woods. I like that it is not form fitting so I can use the pockets and put my hands in underneath. However, it does need to be longer. The cold air billows underneath and makes my stomach cold as I walk. Enough length to cover the posterior would do the trick. I have cinched it in as far as I can along the bottom edge (I have an athletic build) but it's still drafty. Ideally this coat would come in a posterior covering length plus a mid thigh or knee length and have a detachable hood to keep the weather off my neck, since it is meant for wet winter days. I would love a detachable faux fur edging on the hood to keep my face protected too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VtGirlinMA Super Warm Hunting Coat-love the Lodin Green!
I have owned the wax cotton vest for over 5 years now (in Navy-love it!) and within the last year purchased the waxed cotton jacket. Like the vest, the jacket is super warm, I have worn only a light shirt under this is sub freezing weather and stayed toasty! Like any waxed cotton product, it does collect lint, but this has decreased over time. I love that the sleeves are long. As an FYI-the sleeves are long so that when you hold a hunting bow or a rifle, your wrists still stay warm! I don't hunt but wear this when training dogs-the longer sleeves are helpful as they keep my wrists covered when giving hand signals in freezing weather. The soft fleece lining in the hand warmer pockets is a plus! I have found that this jacket fits true to size. I also wear this when running errands and just cuff up the sleeves. I have also recieved many compliments from more fashionable folks. It beats the price of Barbour, too!

Love this coat, it's super warm and really comfortable. And nice looking to boot. I am 5'4", 117 pounds and the small fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3Shepherds Warmth AND good looks
This jacket is a winner in my opinion. The 650-fill down insulation makes it warm. The supple waxed layer is a huge help in combatting rain/snow. FYI, I am 5'9" and about 148 lbs. the women's large is a perfect fit. Jacket fits well over a sweater without being boxy. The slightly longer sleeve length is perfect for someone as tall as I am. Little touches such as the contrasting binding at the cuffs, and the tone-on-tone embroidered LL Bean logo at the bottom of the left pocket lend an overall "touch of class." This jacket has helped take the sting out of winter in NJ.

Rated 3 out of 5 Too Long in Torso for this Coat
I love the look of this coat and its warmth. Unfortunately I had to return it because it was not long enough. I am very long in the torso and although I like the bomber look, it is just not practical for this very practical coat.
Hope Bean will make a slightly longer version, mid bum at least!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chaunteh Great coat
I love this coat! Very well made,looks like it would be very warm. But had to send it back because it was too short. I am only 5'5" and short waisted. The arm length was great though. Wish you would make it longer !
