Rated 5 out of 5 by kgquilts Everything I expected in a barn coat
I love my new barn coat! I ordered the red color and it is great. I first ordered a medium and it was a little snug in my shoulders. I returned it and ordered a large. It is perfect. I can wear layers and bulky sweaters under it and still feel like I can move around in it. It will be my every day jacket for running errands, buying groceries, etc. I love the pockets for my keys and lists. I am really happy w/my new barn coat.

I love the waxed barn jacket from LL Bean. I have always been very pleased with LL Bean for many years and will continue to shop with you! Excellent products from an excellent company!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MTOD Great coat.
I bought this as a spring/fall coat, and it certainly fits the bill. I'd say that I wear it when it's between about 30 and 60 degrees out. I love that it's long enough that when I'm wearing a tunic shirt it won't hang out the bottom of my coat like most light jackets I've ever had. The sleeves are a bit long, but they can be folded back so it's not a big deal. The Deep Mallard color is really cute, not flashy but not boring either. Definitely go for a smaller size as others have said. I'm 5'6", 140 lbs, 36D, and I usually end up getting large coats to fit my chest. I was shocked to find that a small fit me with room to spare, even in the chest area. I can even fit a thin down sweater or a lined chamois shirt under it with no problem at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by geriNP very disappointing
I bought this coat, size medium, as I had read reviews that it normally runs large. I usually buy a size large, as that is usually what fits. The medium barn coat they sent was so big I can not keep it. I wore it once and I had to roll up the sleeves to use my hands. It fits my husband, who is a men's shirt size 16 1/2-34. Now, I have to send it back, and it is going to cost me money to return it. I am extremely disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by valene Barn Coat Shrinks when washed -not expecting this!
I was excited when I got my barn coat, as I had always wanted one.
However, when I finally had to wash it, I was very disappointed. Even though I followed the directions to the letter, my coat shrank quite a bit and was too tight to wear. I was going to replace it but this version and size wasn't on sale, so it would cost me much more to replace it. If you buy this coat you may want to get it larger than you think you will need.

Poor fitting. Fits good around the bottom area but huge around chest and arm area. And I'm pretty proportional. Was unsure on sizing since this was my first purchase from L.L Bean, and from reading reviews ordered a XL, too big. Sent back and ordered a L. Sure the med would be to small around bottom, so I will just settle for what it is. Like someone else said, it's too boxy of a fit.

This coat is just what I hoped it would be, it fits true to size and is just the right weight for the changing seasons.
The light flannel lining allows me to wear a sweater or sweatshirt without feeling restricted when moving around.
The color green is rich looking, also the deep brown corduroy collar & cuffs.

This is the perfect in between weather extremes coat. It I warm but light. Roomy enough for sweater under neath. It is what I wear when down coat is too warm and quilted jacket is not warm enough.

My jacket was my birthday gift from my husband. I really enjoy it. Our last trip we took a windbreaker was too light and my coat was too warm. This coat with the flannel lining is great and yet dressy with all slacks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HelpfulShopper2 Looks great
This is the second barn coat I've owned and I love it. I can wear it almost anywhere and it looks great. Very flattering. I bought the petite small and it is still roomy enough to accommodate layering.
