Rated 3 out of 5 by sunshine107 average coat
I ordered the small (usually wear an 8) and it fits good except the length could be a little longer. The fit isn't as tailored as I would have liked but it is warm. I miss not having a hood.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LongTimeNYCustomer Not as Well Made as My Old One
I ordered a new Barn Coat to replace my old one that was beginning to look tired around the edges. I was most unhappy to see that some of the details that made the prior version so sturdy appeared to be missing from the latest model. It didn't seem as well insulated nor were the hand warmer pockets reinforced on the outside with a double band of material. My first inkling that this was not the same coat was when I saw that the model numbers had changed. So, I guess I should have known that there would be differences and, as usual, not for the better. Sadly, I had to return the new coat and go back to my old one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CTGirl1962 Beautiful jacket!
I had my old barn coat for over 30 years and sadly, I had to donate to Goodwill due to wear. This barn coat is very similar, but not as soft and cozy as my old, worn one!! I'm sure, after 30 years of wear, this one will be just as soft!!! After reading many of the reviews, I did order a size down and it fits perfect! I am a size 12-14 (large), but I ordered the medium. The arms are a little long, but this is a plus...I'd rather they be too long than too short. I highly recommend this jacket for casual wear. And, by the way, it arrived at my doorstep in less than 3 days!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kathy2crows Quality and perfect fit as usual!
I was hesitant to order this coat as I have long been an avid fan of the field coat. But now that the FC is no longer an option in womens sizes I had to find an alternative. I ordered the coat in 2x with trepidation because I usually wear a 3x to accommodate my large breasts. This coat fit perfectly. The sleeves were not too long which is the case when I have to order such a large size. I am 5'5" and the coat hung a bit below my buttocks-perfect. The one thing I miss from the field coat is the zippered chest pocket and the hidden pockets but I love the hand warmer pockets in this model. All in all I am thrilled with this coat. It will shed the dog, cat and horse hair nicely.
If you need a great looking functional coat, buy it, you won't regret it.

I have same coat - an old lavender barn coat size small and wanted a second for another location. WOW what a difference! Had to return Small for an XS. Sleeves need to be longer. With cuff turned up to see trim the sleeve is too short. 5' 7" and 125#. The small was HUGE. The coat is very boxy. Returned for a XS which is much better. I do use this as a work coat and want roomy shoulders for movement. I like the coat but LLB has really messed up the sizing!
Pro: Washable, durable, large pockets, handwarmer pockets, warm, nice work coat, can use as an everyday coat.
Con: sizing off, no inside pocket for cell phone, sleeves too short when cuff turned up.
Would still recommend but buy a size smaller unless you like REALLY large coats.

I bought this coat at the beginning of the worst winter I've experienced since I was kid. Live in upstate New York. I took the advice of other reviewers and bought a size down. (Am a large and bought a medium). Perfect! Now the winter. With temperatures at 20 below wind chill, the jacket kept me entirely warm (couple of shirts underneath). How did I live without it so long?

Rated 2 out of 5 by ScoutFinch sizing is WAAAY off
I am 5'3", 117 lbs, and usually wear a size 4, but sometimes need to size up because shoulders are sometimes too tight for me. I ordered an xs-petite and paid extra for overnight shipping because I needed a new coat, pronto. This coat arrived very quickly and I was thrilled that the shoulders were plenty roomy, and the sleeve length was perfect. But, wait, the body of the coat was ENORMOUS! measured flat, the coat is 21" across the chest. That's right, a 42 INCH chest on an xs-petite coat. I looked like Burl Ives! Total waste of the money I paid for expedited shipping.
Two stars because I guess it's a great, well-made coat if the sizing works for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mammoo glad I kept it
Initially, I was disappointed with this jacket. But then I realized I was comparing it to the Bean field coat that I have worn for over 30 years. I would call this coat a city coat, not really a barn coat. Not heavy duty enough. It would benefit from easement in the shoulders for more active wear users. And larger and more pockets. But for a
grab and run coat it's suitable and very warm. The sleeves a bit short. I bought a medium after reading all the reviews about how large it it was. I'm 5ft. 7 and 135 pounds. It's snug, but ok for casual wear. I will still count on my field coat for hiking and all around really
cold winter wear. It's a beauty--still!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ohiobuckeye1964 great value
This particular coast was to big.............it was the only one left in stock. I could kick myself for not ordering it sooner, I was really looking forward to it. It would have been my 3rd Adirondack Coat.
I'll be the first one to order when they reappear. I highly recommend this coat to everyone......looks great, fits great, goes with everything.
Just remember it runs true to fit.
