My new favorite coat -
By: Mthunter from Lolo, Montana
The coat is worth every penny. We had a streak of below zero weather and I never got cold. The coat fits to size and feels good. I have had more people complement me on this coat than anything else I have ever owned.
Expensive but worth every penny. -
By: Roestalker from Hampshire. UK
I've been looking for ages to find a replacement for a Loden coat I bought 15 - 20 years ago (it's still going strong but no longer waterproof). This coat is just what I was after and looks as though I'm going to get similar service from it (maybe not so good for Orvis as I won't be purchasing another coat from them for quite some time). I prefer Loden coats for deer stalking as they are extremely warm in the winter months and completely noise free. Thoroughly recommend this product!
Excellent winter jacket -
By: Grandveneur from Rockville, Maryland
This is a warm (but breathable), comfortable and elegant winter jacket. Even non-hunters will appreciate it. It is supposed to be rainproof (not tested under downpours yet). Also, the combination of inner sleeves, sleeve straps and high collar provides good protection from cold air, including around the neck (no need for a scarf). It runs true to size (XL).
Outstanding for driven birds -
This is a beautiful jacket with many thoughtful details. Very warm, much more comfortable than, say, a comparable Barbour or Beretta field coat. Sleeves and body nice and long for me in size L, and I am 6'2" with 35" sleeves, body long enough to cover shooting suit jacket worn underneath. Only quibble: hood is flimsy and somewhat cheesy thin nylon, not up to overall quality.
Loved everything except the velcro closures. I knew that before i bought it but when i saw it, it didn't fit with the look and feel of this high a priced coat. Other than that it was a very nicely designed coat and very warm.
Good value -

I picked this up on sale and am pretty impressed with the quality. My first thought when I picked up the box was that the coat would be too light, but when putting it on I started to appreciate the clever engineering. It is puzzling why a coat at even the discounted price point couldn't have the same quality zipper as on my Beaufort, but I suppose that can be swapped out for something sturdier by my tailor if it really becomes a problem. All in all I am expecting good things from this jacket once the temperature really starts to drop, will have to wait and see how it performs under tougher conditions.
Warm and functional -
Great light weight jacket that keeps out wind and rain. I have found this jacket ideal when I am on the move because of its breathable wool qualities, the comfort factor is deluxe.
Luxury shooting coat -

Boy is this coat warm! I was nervous about getting this because of the cost, and I got it at the discounted price. But I have to say that it is worth it. The finish is superb, and the fit is great for me. I an a slim build at 6' and 168lbs, and I got the Medium. The neck is comfortable for me when zipped up at this size and so i don't think that i'd go to the large. I think that if you are on the larger size that you'd need to go one up on sizing for comfort. The velcro cuffs are useful but spoil the look of the coat a little for wearing outside the shooting situation. I haven't had the opportunity to wear it in wet weather yet and if I find problems with that then I'll update this review. Overall a lovely coat.
Loden Coat -
By: GlennM from Wolfeboro NH
Excellent fit , warm and appears durable. However, previous reviews are correct in saying that the zipper should be a larger size YKK zipper that would be easier thread and get engaged. As is the zipper thread and dongle at end are too small to engage while wearing gloves and even difficult to do with bare hands.
stylish and nice -
I wear this jacket shooting and it is comfortable, warm and actually quite attractive. Plenty of room for moving the gun around even when bound up for the cold. Jacket actually runs a little big. Comments about the zipper are true - but probably because I am neither european or left handed - nor for that matter very coordinated. All in all, every nice.
