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 4 out of 5 by BmoreOs Runs big
LOVE the green color of this coat. It looks like a Barbour jacket but for 1/4 of the price. Unfortunately, the other reviewers were right. I took their advice and ordered a Medium instead of my usual Large, and it was still huge. Luckily, LLBean is super easy to deal with in terms of returns and I just called the quick exchange number and I will be trying the small.

Just love this coat. It's much nicer than I even expected. The quality of LL Bean is always great. Will order from them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tibbets Love this coat
I have had two barn coats in the past and worn both out. The comfort is like a broken in pair of jeans--washes well and fits my lifestyle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HARLEEBB So here is the story. A love, hate story...
Let me start by saying that I absolutely love this coat. It's great. I have one that I bought about 5 years ago and wear it all the time. I decided to get another one for an upcoming vacation. The old coat is a size XL and fits like a loose glove, perfect really. I ordered and XL. Received the XL a few days ago. I swam and I mean swam in it, like 2 of me could fit in it (ok, maybe not two). No problem. I re-ordered a large. Just got it today. Again, I am swimming in it. Now comes the HATE part. What happened to this coat? Did they redesign it? It seems longer, the arms are huge, chest huge etc. etc. I am not re-ordering a medium. If my neighbors see another truck pull up to my house they will have a shopping intervention. I'll have to see if I can find these coats in the store so I can try them on because, they have changed the style. Again, I love this coat but I feel deflated with it and HATE that the same size is oh, so big, BIG, LARGE, REALLY FREAKING HUGE!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Wanderlust2012 Beautiful, but still too big
I have had my eye on this coat for awhile. I finally ordered it because I am going to grad school in the mountains. I am 5'7'' and 115 Ibs. I ordered the XS and it is still quite large on me, but I am too in love to send it back! Hopefully once I add some bulkier layers under it, it won't seem so large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanGirl105 Fantastic for Fall Weather
I absolutely love this jacket. It was everything that I wanted. It does very well in Fall weather and it protects you against rain and wind. All of the pockets in the jacket are very convenient as well because you can hold many things in the jacket if you need to. Does well against stains. Great Fall jacket.

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.
