Built to work from sunup to sundown, our new Iron Forge Hemp® Canvas Chore Coat is made from a strong and supple 12.9-oz 55% industrial hemp/27% recycled polyester/18% organic cotton blend that’s 25% more abrasion resistant than conventional cotton duck canvas and needs no break-in. One of the world’s strongest natural fibers, the hemp content provides superior toughness and durability; the recycled polyester and organic cotton provide a soft hand and allow a tighter weave for increased abrasion resistance. Buttoning up with 4-hole metal shank buttons on the center-front placket, the coat features a bi-swing back that provides excellent freedom of motion for swinging a hammer or working above shoulder height. The generous collar can be flipped up for additional protection from sun or wind, and a longer, button-closure sleeve placket allows easy roll-up past the elbow. Three front drop-in pockets provide ample carry capacity; two hidden side-entry handwarmer pockets are set behind the lower front pockets; a zippered security pocket on the inside gives you a place to stash your phone, wallet and keys. Adjustable tab at the waist for custom fit. Webbing hang loop included. Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.

Patagonia workwear jackets have a roomy fit compared to many of our other styles. Jackets are cut bigger than standard for ease over body and to leave ample room for layering. Men who have a leaner build or don’t wear bulky layers may want to order workwear jackets one size smaller than usual.


Hemp is an alternative natural fiber that’s cultivated with low impact on the environment. It requires no irrigation, uses no pesticides or synthetic fertilizers, and is harvested and processed by hand. It’s one of the most durable natural fibers on the planet, and results in a fabric with a wonderful drape, comparable to linen.

Unfortunately, industrial hemp is illegal to grow in most parts of the world because government agencies continue to associate it with marijuana. We currently import our high-quality hemp from China, and continue to hope that it might someday grow freely again.

Patagonia makes garments with hemp alone or blended with other fibers like recycled polyester, organic cotton and spandex.

Men's Iron Forge Hemp® Canvas Chore Coat is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I altered it before I even removed the tags I ordered this coat online from and was eager to try it on when it arrived. I live in the mountains of western North Carolina, and as the workwear is only available from Patagonia directly, I had nowhere to buy local or to try on before ordering. I've been buying Patagonia clothing since the 90's and have always worn either a men's small or a women's medium (until recently when the women's cut changed). When the Chore Coat arrived, I tried it on, and the fit was huge. I felt like I was swimming in it. I'm 5'4" and 155 pounds, muscular build. But I was going to deal with the fit. Everything was good until I put my hands in the handwarmer pockets. The handwarmer pockets are lined with microfiber that sticks to rough skin. I decided that it had to go because I can't abide pockets lined with that stuff. Before I even took the tags off of the jacket, I had taken a seam ripper to both pockets-I cut the pockets off, drilled out the rivets, removed all of the microfiber, stitched on some soft webbing to cover the bare edge of the pockets, and stitched the pockets back on. Once I took care of the pocket issues, I removed the tags, washed it hot to make it shrink a little (sure enough, it did) and now I've got a customized Chore Coat. Please, Patagonia designers, for the love of everyone that works with their hands (that tend to be rough from carpentry, welding, masonry, farm work, sewing, shaping surfboards, or whatever), please provide an unlined pocket on this coat, or at the very least, don't use microfiber. your pal, Matt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect multi-function coat I have to lead off with a gripe: The last couple of years has seen a shift to skinny jeans and slim fit clothing. I’m 6’3” 260lbs, athletic shape. I have big thighs from skiing and rugby, and a wide upper body with the muscle you’d expect from someone thats done a lot of strenuous activity. I love Patagonia but the clothes are being made for little people. Finally the work line comes along. To the reviewers that complained that this is too big, its made for someone who does a lot of manual labor. It’s made to do manual labor. The size is perfect and its a great looking jacket out and about or wherever you labor.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fit is so massive Two stars for fit and not offering in XS. 5 stars everywhere else! I’m not a small dude. I’m fit, but I’m also 6’ tall and 170lbs. The small is absolutely swimming. Seriously 6” of overlap on both lapels and it’d still be loose. I understand it should fit loose and free and easily move with whatever you’re doing, and of course layering is important to stay warm as it’s unlined. I just feel like a small child when wearing it. Maybe I’ll get it altered but that seems kinda over the top.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this. I rarely write reviews, but I'm so satisfied with this coat that I feel compelled to do so. It does run big, so heed the advice of the previous reviews and order a size down, seriously. I didn't. Ordered my normal size, L, and lo and behold had to exchange for a medium, which fits me perfectly (5'8" 180 lbs, bit of a stocky build). We'll see how it endures the test of time and wear, but the fabric and design are beautiful and it feels/appears to be of the quality construction you'd expect from Patagonia.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great chore coat Looking for something tougher to layer over my light weight down jacket that is already getting snagged full of holes and this worked great. As with other reviews I ordered a size down and can still layer underneath with no issue. Jacket is much heavier then anticipated and I look forward to seeing how it stands the test of time. I look hope to try a pair of the work wear pants in the near future but am concerned due to the vast difference in sizing needed versus sizing sold.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs a hood I love this coat. My wife and I live on a small farm in New Jersey, but one thing I would love to see is a hood, with the varying weather conditions a hood is something that is necessary for the elements.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Size down! This thing is, as other reviewers of Iron Forge apparel have commented, oversized: I'm 5'11", 159 pounds and normally wear a Medium; but having read those other reviewers' sizing comments, I ordered a Small - and, since I hate returning stuff, was relieved to learn it fits perfectly, even still allowing room for layering (e.g., NanoAir hoody). Some other reviewer complaints concern the 'pilly' hemp/cotton/polyester material - but I figure this is perhaps semi-intentional: this jacket is heavy duty WORK gear, not technical apparel. The hemp blend has a soft, friendly feel to it - doesn't require break in, nor does it shrink in the dryer. I dinged the coat 1 star for its button front. My feeling is that Patagonia designers chose to cave to tradition (think 'trucker jacket') rather than the more user friendly option of a zipper. Overall, this thing is a modern, sophisticated take rugged work gear.
