Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanEverything Great Jacket
I'm really excited to see LL Bean offer a jacket like this. I live in North Carolina and purchased this jacket to use for "light duty" winter sporting (shooting/hunting) activities. Winters in the Carolinas are fairly mild with daytime temps. in the 30's to low 50's. So, I'm hoping that this piece will be a longtime and favorite staple for sporting activities here. The construction of this jacket is very nice. The waxed cotton has a nice hand but still feels strong enough to withstand limbs and thorns. The cotton flannel lining, I think, is very well done considering my geographic locale. It seems worm enough to knock off the chill but not too worm that you couldn't wear a sweater underneath on a colder day. The light weight cotton lining produces a fit that is not bulky or cumbersome, and, in my opinion, offers good flexibility and range of motion for any type of wear. The burnished brass hardware feels high quality also; the zipper functions smoothly and the buttons are not aggravating to snap or unsnap. The soft corduroy appointments on the collar, undersides of the cuff and pocket flaps produce a nice finished look to the overall construction of this jacket. The loden color combined with all other aspects of this piece, in my opinion, produces a look which captures the classic function and heritage of waxed cotton field sport jackets. The only change I might suggest is a double zipper to offer a more custom fit around the bottom of the jacket. The price point compared to the quality of this piece is outstanding. If I can, I will write a follow-up review at the end of hunting season. I'm excited about this jacket and look forward putting it to the test!
