Rated 4 out of 5áby RIwalker2 Classic Coat With Caveats
I bought this coat to replace an old canvas barn coat that was literally falling apart. I'm very happy with the fit and the looks of the new coat. I also love the waxed cotton outer material. Just a few small tweaks could make this a great coat:
- The doubled hip pockets are too fiddly; a single large pocket on each hip would be better
- The breast pocket is too small for my phone or wallet
- The lining, while great looking, could be a bit thicker and warmer
- Lastly, an inside vest pocket, like a sport coat, would be brilliant.
Even with those caveats, it's a good coat and a good value.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Md1Outdoorsman Awesome Jacket!!
Sleeves are silky smooth and the whole jacket is warmer then you would think for being as thin as it is but excellent for fall weather!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby cordoroy1 Great Coat / Excellent Value
This is a great all purpose coat!! Well made, excellent quality and easy fit. I looked at a lot of similar items from other manufacturers, but when you include the great customer service, free shipping and quality guarantee offered by LL Bean, there was really no other choice.

Rated 4 out of 5áby mrchuck Great jacket.... strange pockets
This is the 4th wax cotton jacket I have owned, and I like this one very much. The fabric is an excellent weight for the jacket and the color is right on. The cotton lining extends the temperature range of the jacket, there is room for layering. The bi-swing back is great the jacket doesn't bind at all. Makes it very comfortable.
The pockets are short of perfect. The zip chest pocket is a mystery. Too small for a phone. Too small for glasses. Too small for an index card. If it was inside and deeper it could be quite useful.
The hand-warmer pockets are unlined. Not very warm.
The lower pockets are shallow and the hand-warmer pocket flaps don't snap or button, so what ever you put in there is not very secure. You would think you could put gloves in them but I don't think I would try it. The pockets on the women,s model seem more useful.
Still I'm glad to have it.

Rated 4 out of 5áby LKirk Wax Lines
This is a well designed, heavy field coat that blocks the wind and is reasonably waterproof. The wax treatment results in lines appearing wherever the coat is folded. This is a bit odd but not a particular problem since this coat is not intended to be a fashion item. My guess is this will be a durable coat, one I will have for some time.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Katyfarm So much nicer than nylon!
My son goes to college in Colorado, and while he has lightweight wool jackets for cool days, and heavier coats for cold weather, he had nothing waterproof to wear during the recent heavy rains.
He doesn't like the feel of nylon, and really doesn't care for the jellybean-like colors most rain gear comes in, so this waxed cotton coat was just the thing. I had it shipped to him, and he LOVES it. It's great for cool, WET weather, yet not so long or so heavy that he can't wear it to class.
Thanks, L.L. Bean, for coming through with the perfect garment yet again!

Rated 5 out of 5áby cdcoleman A very fine coat
This is really a very fine coat. I love the waxed cotton fabric and the fit is perfect for me. Because I have broad shoulders but stand at 5'6" I have to get a large size. This coat not only fits me well, but allows me to layer clothes underneath. I have had the original field coat before but I sent it back because I was not impressed with the fabric. This coat is totally different and I plan to keep it forever (at least as long as I can). Even though the cut is the original field coat, it is a much more quality wear and looks really nice. People really notice it when I wear it. I personally feel that LL Bean should make all field coats with the waxed cotton, but I am sure people like the others as well. I would give it 10 stars but you only allow 5.

Rated 5 out of 5áby VermontDad The Real Deal
This field coat exceeded my expectations. The large fits perfect - I'm 5' 11" 200 pounds, athletic/muscular build. There is room to wear a sweater/sweatshirt or flannel shirt underneath which is how ,I think, it is supposed to be worn. It looks fantastic and the pictures on the site don't do it justice. Something about the waxed cotton makes it look much better than the original (not waxed) field coat. If you're looking for a field coat put this one high on the list.

Rated 2 out of 5áby McCool Loved the coat, hated the sizing.
I really liked the fabric and the style of this coat, but the medium size (my usual) was HUGE! I exchanged it for a small which almost fit, but was a bit too snug in the chest. I'm getting the Upland Field coat today. I hope this one works.
