Rated 1 out of 5 by Rebushka Not quite what I had in mind
I'm sure that this is a "good" jacket. It is shown with a little more style than what it looks like in reality. It's shapeless and large as indicated by other purchasers. Despite the nice seams in the picture, it just hangs. And catches lint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sollas Good buy.
Fit is comfortable and attractive. Waxed cotton functional in damp/wet weather (and less expensive than Barbour), and flannel lining keeps the chill away.

Rated 3 out of 5 by missh Nice and warm, but...
I never had a waxed coat before so I did not know what to expect.
It's a nice coat but I would say it's strictly for "around the house" wear. It picks up lint which is impossible to remove. The fit is large and not really fitted which I like, but it loses the crisp look of a new coat very quickly. I generally wear a medium but had to reorder a small and it's still roomy. You cannot wash or dry clean the coat so any stains have to be rubbed off with a damp sponge or "professionally cleaned" whatever that means. Hopefully, the coat will look better after years of wear if it can stay clean that long!

Rated 5 out of 5 by katmandu Love my waxed coats!
This is my third waxed coat, the first I got in Ireland and it's fifteen years old and I still wear it. My second waxed coat came from LL Bean and it is from the exact same material, I've had it several years so I know it wears well. I love my new coat, it's basically a barn coat with waxed cotton. I read the reviews ahead of time and wished I had paid attention, I got it in medium and had to return it for a small and it fits great. You won't regret spending the money on this coat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by reagan22 LOVE IT
The coat fits perfect. I wasn't sure which size to order so I tried on my daughter in law's barn jacket which was too tight for me so I knew I needed to order the next size up. The sleeve length is also perfect for me (5' 3"). I think this fabric will pick up lint, which I read several other reviewers stated, but so far I have not experienced that problem. I really hate to wear a coat, especially when I drive, and so far no problems. I don't think I would wear a fuzzy type sweater with coat because I think the lint from the sweater would be a problem. But with a LLBean turtleneck or mock under it, makes a nice, comfortable look, and so far as been warm enough for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by sophiepearl it is what it is
no one said this would be a pretty coat or glamorous, but really, it is so boring. And stiff, although I thought it might be, waxed cotton being stiff. If you could just make it fit nice, perhaps a pricess seam or two, or give us a choice; totally barn mucking out style and choice number 2 something a bit more flattering to wear to the feed store, perhaps. Sent it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tripp Great coat! Good value!
Love the fabric. Coat is lighter weight than traditional canvas type field coat. Coat is true to size. Great value for the british Millerain fabric.

Rated 3 out of 5 by roxanne57 It's ok, but......
I would recommend this coat because I like it. However, keep in mind that the coat does attract lint. In fact, I'm thinking of sending it back and exchanging it for the canvas non-wax barn coat so I won't have to fuss with keeping it lint free.. Also, I ordered my usual size Medium. It is roomier than I had anticipated, but doesn't look sloppy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MarissaCO Runs large!
Love the quality of this coat. It is really sturdy and made well. I ended up returning it though because even the extra small was huge! It really is an item to look at buying in petite if you are shorter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cer53 Great barn coat
I love this barn coat. I recently bought it when looking at much more expensive ones. This one is a beautiful color, nice fabric and fits well. However, I do feel it ran a bit large. I originally ordered a XL but felt it was a bit too large. I re-ordered it in a Large and the fit was perfect. I have worn it a few times already and am looking forward to many years service. I own a canvas barn coat from LL Bean that is quite a few years old and it still looks great, but is just too large now that I have lost weight. This one is quite an upgrade from the original one. The fabric is a beautiful color of dark olive green and I love the waxed cotton. I think it will be very durable and sturdy and the color will lend itself to the wearability. It says to wipe off mud and dirt after it dries, so I'm hoping that everything else will just slide off.
