Rated 5 out of 5 by Tinkerbutz Great coat!
Bought this for my son. He loves it. He likes that he can wear it with almost anything. It's not too heavy but very warm. Quality is what I expect from L.L.Bean. With it being waxed he was surprised how water resistant it is. It was a great gift!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JZinnie This should be a staple item at LL Bean!
What a great jacket! I own a number of waxed cotton jackets that are easily double (Some triple) the price of this one, and to be honest this jacket is right up there with the other makes. Perfect for a mid/heavy wool sweater underneath.. the pleated shoulders still allow for excellent movement with heavy layering, unlike my other waxed jackets. My only gripe would be that the jacket isn't very warm, maybe a wool lining instead of the current cotton lining would be better. Other than that, It's a great waterproof jacket for Spring/Fall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by repajo Nice Field Coat
I have owned a field coat for some time. I have been waiting for a weather resistant field coat from Bean and now I have one. I normally wear a large. The large size in this style provides room for other layered clothing. Wish Bean would change design to include inside zip chest pockets, a place to secure cell phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 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 5 by 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 5 by 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 5 by 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 5 by 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 5 by 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!
