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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mtbjane This coat rocks!!
There is not enough words that can describe how much I love this jacket. I purchased an xs petite in stone and wear it almost daily.
First the jacket is warm. Second, it is very stylish. You can dress it up to reflect a "city" look or dress it down for more of an outdoors look. It looks great with dark, skinny jeans and black moto boots or skinny jeans, a plaid shirt and suede boots for a rustic look. I also wear this jacket with a mini skirt, tights and boots. You can do a lot with this jacket. Versatile and fashionable at a fabulous price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by fey22 Sizing is way off...
I ordered this coat as well as the Adirondack Insulated Barn Coat and will be returning both of them. I ordered mediums, thinking that at my size they would fit but no, they were HUGE and boxy. The coat is beautifully made and the red color is gorgeous but the size, OY!

Rated 4 out of 5 by whatAhoot Great coat, odd sizing
I rarely review, but the sizing is so weird on this I wanted to help a sister out. I am 6'0" tall, and around 133 pounds. I am usually a size 2 or 4 TALL pant, a small B cup, medium in shirts because I need long sleeves. I ordered a small and it was way, way too big. The sleeves covered half my hands, and I could have fit two of me inside it. I returned and got an extra small. It fits much better but is still roomy, I can wear two sweaters and a shirt underneath. I got the rustic red and I find it goes well with my blonde hair/fair skin. This is a great fall coat, but not meant for winter if you live up north. I'd wear in temps 40 deg F and up. Not warm enough for snow. Slightly water repellant (water beads, but eventually soaks if it's down pouring). I would have given 5 stars, but seriously, I am not an extra small anywhere else and never will be. Not sure why they sized it like a man's coat. Good luck!

Rated 2 out of 5 by GinD Seems to be 'revised' style of original barn coat
Beyond me why L L Bean continues to change 'tried and true' styles that people love. I had the original barn coat (size small) but now needed a size XS. The flagship store did not have XS size (per usual) so they ordered one for me to be delivered. Arrived quickly, but to my disappointment, I did not care for the new styling at all plus the XS is still too big on me and unflattering! Seems like they make their sizes for 'larger' people, no offense. So sadly, this coat will be returned and I will have to search for a barn coat from another company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cattitude64 Love this jacket!
Originally ordered this jacket as a petite medium. It was too large for me so shipped it back and got the petite small. I am 4 ft 11.5 inches tall and the small fits perfectly. The color is rustic red and it is a rich, deep red- exactly what I was looking for. It is well made and warm for cooler New England weather. L.L. Bean's response to my first order return, which was months old, was positive and prompt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mariposa58 I love this jacket!
I was looking for "a between season" jacket so to speak. A jacket to wear in the fall and in late winter/early spring when it is not too cold.
I ordered my jacket on a Friday and it arrived on Monday!
This jacket looks exactly as it appears on the computer ( I read some reviews that said the color was not accurate).
I love the design, a little boxy but does not present a problem for me. In the reviews I read that the jacket runs a little large, and it does.
This jacket is very comfortable and roomy. The sleeves are just the right length so you can roll them up.
This jacket is great because you can comfortably wear a sweater underneath.
The quality and workmanship are excellent.
Thank you llbean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SassyGal Wanted longer sleeves
I had been looking to replace my old men's barn jacket for a while and when I saw this one with princess seams and in plus size, I thought I would try it. Overall, I am pleased. I really love the on-seam pockets and it fits me in the hips and bust with room to spare. Though I was disappointed that the sleeve length quoted is for when the cuffs are not turned up, and when your arms are not bent at the elbow. So while this is not designed to have three-quarter length sleeves, on me, that's the effect. There are even elbow darts in the sleeves - but they hit me above the elbow. I realize that garment specs are typically two inches shorter than my actual arm length, but the measurement quoted on the size chart for this jacket appeared as if I wouldn't have the three-quarter length sleeve issue. It's that very reason I've returned winter-weight coats to LL Bean in the past and why the barn jacket I was replacing was a Men's jacket - for the sleeve length. (I'd even looked into sewing my own at one point!) Luckily, this is a fall jacket, so my bare forearms aren't going to get too chilly when I wear this. I needed a new barn jacket, and this one was in my size, at a good price, and arrived promptly at my door. If the sleeves were longer, I would be rating it as 5 stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by giabellasmommie Horrible!
I have to start by saying I am a long time customer of LL Bean and this is the first time I'll be returning an item.
I just received this coat and I am very displeased.
I ordered the Loden Green. It's more of a celery color. The jacket is very thin too. I have heavier shirts. The fit is horrible ~ big and boxy. I have a Chocolate Brown Barn Coat that I've had for about 12 years and it's still in great condition. This one looks as if it will fall apart the first time it's washed.
I seriously cannot believe the poor quality of this jacket from a store like LL Bean. .

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hello7 Great work coat
This coat fills a need if you work outdoors and require something warm and a bit heavier duty than a normal coat. The canvas is a nice thickness and seems like it will clean up nice. There's plenty of room for sweaters underneath or if not, room for movement while you're working. The plaid flannel lining is nice. The styling is very simple and work-like, including the colors, so you'll be wearing the coat, it won't be wearing you! Great for hikes as well as work. I like the under-stated quality, and the good materials.
