Rated 3 out of 5 by tjpx Sleeves so long I couldn't see my fingers
I returned this for an exchange in a medium. Going by the chest size on the item, I ordered a large. It's so oversized and the sleeves so long that I couldn't see my fingers. It fit like a Big and Tall instead of normal sizing. Way too long and way too big in the chest and waist. I understand the need for a coat to be on the large side so that you can wear layers, but I could strap another person underneath this with me.
I otherwise like the styling, material, and weight. It seems a suitable winter coat for Tennessee.
I'm waiting for the medium to come in, but I'm very concerned that it will also be too large. And if it is, that will be another return shipping fee.

We bought this coat because my husband said his last one was showing a bit of wear. Can you imagine? After 25 years it showed a "bit" of wear!! If he gets the same service from this one then some grand child will inherit a very nice coat that will give him the same terrific service that we received from the last one.
We love you LL Bean!!

I've worn this jacket for 15 years ago and it still looks and feels great! The color is fading which only adds to its overall great look. There are a few worn areas across the shoulder from carrying a padded camera backpack but otherwise, it looks great. My lone regret is that there isn't an inside pocket for a wallet or phone. The chest pocket is small and not ideal for carrying most items but the double side pockets are more than adequate. I recommend this jacket for use in the fall over a sweater or a heavy shirt. Would recommend this jacket to anyone looking for a good fall coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by maynardS Fits well on Small Frame!
First off, was incredibly pleased to discover that the item came in a full day earlier than expected. Upon opening I was immediately in love with the Original Field Coat. Fits well on a small frame (slight "Oversized" look) 145lb/5'8''. Looks exactly as depicted in the images, got exactly what I was hoping for.
Only qualm would be lack of inside pocket; however, I imagine the 5-6 outside pockets will do me well.
Looking forward to many long years with this coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by deescott Excellent fit, fine quality
It's a lovely jacket, just what my husband wanted. He is broad through the shoulders, and there is plenty of room, and the sleeves are nice and long. Very well made.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sfcharlie Odd sizing
For maybe the last 35 years, the size, shirt, jacket, or coat that fit me were either Medium or Large--as is the case with everything else I've purchased this year.. I had to return this jacket in medium because it was much too large. Small was out of stock -- not surprised, since it seems likely to actually be the size of most brand's mediums. But if you end up with one that fits you well, then it is a decent value for the price.

This is the latest of many LLB Field Coats I've owned over the years and I keep buying them which is in itself a testimonial of sorts....I like the light weight (compared to the zip out lined version) which makes it great for doing yard work in early Spring as you won't overheat easily......I do wish the zippered breast pocket was a little bigger as it barely accommodates my credit card sized wallet. I also think an inside zippered security pocket that would fit a smart phone would be a good addition. Overall I'm pleased and I'm sure I'll buy another sometime in the future.

I ordered this jacket in a large and it was shipped as a large. Apparently the sizes run larger than normal so it was returned for an exchange [size "M"].
I received an update informing me it had been received but nothing about an exchange.
To date I have not received an exchange replacement. Apparently know one read the instructions on the return sheet which clearly indicated the return was for an exchange as well as the reason for the exchange.
Looks like this one fell thru the cracks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by worsehorseplayerever Fine field coat
Still trying to adjust to the no inside pocket and the odd outer pockets. Other than that the coat looks and feels just fine, and is also great in cold to moderate temperatures.
