This jacket is a little too narrow in the shoulders, while the rest is still the same XL, which I normally wear. And honestly it is very-very simple jacket. I'd say it should cost a $150 max.
Perfect for its purpose -
By: Smithers35 from Texas
I purchased this lightweight coat to shield my torso and arms from mosquitoes while in the woods, yet light enough to wear even in the hottest months. This coat is perfect for my intended use. It also has plenty of pockets to stash gear. Great lightweight coat.
The classic fishing jacket -
By: BambooMIke from The Midwest
I saw this jacket in the 2012 catalog and by the time I tried to order it, Orvis was already sold out. I did not make the same mistake in 2013. The jacket reminds me of the classic fishing jackets worn during the golden age of fly-fishing in America. As a matter of fact, this jacket looks almost identical to the one worn by my fishing hero, George LaBranche, during the early 1900's It is the perfect weight for spring, summer and fall. Just a great jacket!
Is it not a fake? -

Color does not match the image. Missing zip. Is it not a fake?
Practical stylish summer Jacket -
By: Vogel from London UK
I am a keen Orvis fan. This jacket met a need for a stylish but casual, practical jacket that was suitable for what passes as a British summer.
handsome coat -
what a wonderful coat,, works in many different venues
Reserve judgement -
By: Balmain from Belfast
I was slightly taken aback by the lack of lining, creating a somewhat unfinished look on the inside. Once I got my head around that, and reminded myself that I trust Orvis, I felt reassured. Although I've given four stars, I will reserve final judgement until the summer comes and I'm wearing the coat regularly.
Not Summerweight -
By: JoelS from Philadelphia, PA
I found the jacket way to heavy, stiff and canvas like. I wouldn't want a jacket that requires a break in period. This one does, and it does not have enough pockets
Good quality -
By: zentao from Toronto, ON
This jacket has very good quality in both material and stitching. No signs that buttons will fall off. The canvas is definitely intended for rough use and is much heavier than many "fashion" coats - it is probably the same weight as Barbour's original line. In fact, this jacket might work well coated with Barbour's wax. The fit is a bit funny in that the arms and shoulders fit me quite well while the body of the jacket is very large. I guess when (if) I grow a huge beer belly then it will still fit. I think it would be good if it had an inner pocket that closed with a zipper for storing things like my wallet while I'm out.
Not a must buy - pity -
Nice fabric and great colour but heavy for a summerweight jacket even in an English summer. Snapflap pockets excellent , but styling at the back over fussy and combined with boxy cut does not make for a "must buy me" look
