I haven't had a chance to use this jacket in the field yet but really like the layout and initial quality. Great fit, true to size. For the quality and design I think this jacket is a real value.

Rated 5 out of 5 Best Dad Coat Ever!
If you have kids or are planning on having kids soon, this review is for you. I am a father of two small children, but I really do not like carrying a diaper bag or having my hands full with kids? stuff. Herein lies the genius of the shooting coat turned into the Dad coat. I wore my last shooting coat to playground outings because it was the right weight for fall, but I soon found out that I could get a packet of wipes, a few diapers, a portable changing pad, assorted snacks and other sundry items into the coat?s large billow pockets designed to hold a full box of shells, yet no one was the wiser looking at me at the playground. This kept my hands free and me more mobile than a bag-toting man, which freed me up for a variety of Dad-related things, such as playing with my kids. Then I realized what I needed was a full on upland hunting coat with a front loading game pocket for all that extra stuff kids are always giving you to ?hold?. It adds up: a sippy cup here, a milk bottle there, a hat when your kid get hot from playing, a toy or two, not to mention your own coffee cup (if you are smart).
So, the ?kids? bought me this L.L. Bean coat at my request in the solid brown color. On the coat?s first outing, we all went to a lantern parade where the kids had their own handmade lanterns from milk jugs. After the parade part was over and it was time for playing with the other kids, the boys gave my wife their lanterns to hold. I took those lanterns and put them into the front loading game pocket with no problem. They just disappeared and were saved for later retrieval, but I wasn?t left ?holding the bag? so to speak. I was also able to carry our stainless steel coffee cups, diapers, wipes and changing pad, not to mention my own personal effects. The small zipper pockets are great for my wallet and keys, while the inside pocket keeps my phone safe. Plus, there are two sets of lined hand-warming pockets always available for my use even with a ton of stuff in the coat. The coat is comfortable, easy to clean, rugged and looks great. The best part is you can basically put whatever you need to in the game pocket. Because the pocket is designed to carry dead, bloody birds, you can easily clean it out after you put something dirty inside or something leaks (like that sippy cup). The whole time, you have both hands free and the coat basically looks and feels the same as if it were empty, yet it is surprisingly easy to ?magically? retrieve individual items as requested or needed. If you are a mother reading this, get this coat for Dad and tell him how to use it. He will thank you! If you are a Dad reading this, get this coat for yourself and employ it in the way described. L.L. Bean should be marketing the coat as a dual purpose hunting/Dad coat.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NJHunter1234 Sizing Off
I have been wearing LLBean XXL Tall clothing for years and the fit is perfect for me. So when I was looking for a new jacket I ordered the Upland Hunter Field Coat in XXL Tall. It definitely runs on the small size, I would say the XXL fit more like an XL so I sent it back.

This is a great coat. I purchased a similar one 10+ years ago and loved it. I didn't store it correctly and had an issue with mold so I needed a new one. I like the changes with the pockets. The only issue I have is that the sleeves seem a little tight as they are lined. Once the coat is on it's great but getting it on and off over a loose shirt is a little difficult.

Going from Arizona to Maine is a 180 degree change. Today's Arizona temperature was 97F and the high for our final Maine destination was 42F. The choice of the Upland hunter field coat was " best' option". As important , the high level of service is what makes L.L. Bean an a outstanding company .

Rated 3 out of 5 by vikingo Nice go to jacket for 25 years. Yep, the same one!
Husband said "I just wish that it had a zipper instead of buttons."
Someone changed the design ?
I am a woman and I bought this many years ago and it has a zipper and snaps.
Still using it daily in 2015.
Kids can't believe it! lol
Go back to your old design please

Got myself a Christmas present.. Love the way it looks and feels. With a fleece jacket under it, it is great for the cold Georgia hunts and hikes (understand that temperature can be relative).. Great pockets and lots of room to store things.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MikeinSC Great coat for the field
Perfect coat for some of my walk-in duck spots. with a little layering you can make this coat fit any condition. The shell loops in the pockets are a little big but that's the only problem I've found. Can't wait to see how many years of use I get out of this coat. So far it seems it will last a lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RPShadySide Great Jacket
I absolutely love this jacket. My wife got this for me last year for Christmas and I finally got a chance to use it. I hunt in Northern WV AND Southwestern PA where the weather is snowy, rainy, and sunny all in the same day. This jacket keeps me dry, warm, and is very comfortable. I like that I can button and unbutton the coat with gloves on. It has plenty of room for shells, water, crackers and anything else I need. I don't normally write reviews but if you are looking for a great hunting coat LLBean has the history and the knowledge to make the best. I promise you will not be disappointed.
