Rated 5 out of 5 by WaldenPond Wonderful jacket
This is a beautiful jacket. I ordered it in anticipation of spring and when it arrived I was impressed by the quality and the gorgeous colour. It's extremely well made, and the British Millerain fabric is as heavy and beautiful as on a similar, hooded LL Bean jacket I bought many years ago and still have and wear. The plaid lining is lovely, as are the buttons and corduroy on the collar and cuffs. Excellent quality. I haven't worn it in the rain but the fabric seems very resilient. As other reviewers have noted, it's a roomy cut. I went down one size and it fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BuffaloLLBeanFan waxed cotton adirondack barn coat
I love this coat! The waxed cotton does initially hold a little lint but the lint does wear off quickly. The quality it very nice and the fabric is sturdy. It does not allow any wind to get through and is quite warm for a barn coat. I live in Buffalo NY and wear this in the winter when my down jacket is too warm. I normally order a large but returned it for a medium and it fit beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CAMom43679 Great student jacket
I bought two jackets as Christmas gifts for my two college students - one for city wear and one for the cold and windy suburbs. They both love their jackets and appreciate the traditional and classic design and durable materials knowing the waxed cotton will weather nicely over time - a testament to its classic design. The cut of the jacket is ample and roomy without looking completely shapeless. The jackets are very nicely lined and there are nice touches that set this jacket apart -- the brown corduroy cuffs and collar, the high waist hand warmer pockets, the deep button tab pockets, plaid lining. Classic through and through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cinnymutt warm & roomy with extra pockets
I'm 5'3" and weigh 180 lbs. I usually wear an XL, 1X or 2X. I bought this coat in an XL and it fits great. Pleanty of room for medium weight shirts. Plus there are two side-slit pockets just above the button-flap pockets. My only regret is that I didn't buy a lighter color because the hunter green shows a lot of lint. It's my go-to coat for running errands, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NonnaRoma Perfect weight, plenty of pockets
Great all around jacket, city or country. Great fit and not too bulky. The waxed finish is very nice.

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.
