Nice jacket but short sleeves
I'm a somewhat burly 6'0" man with wide shoulders and slightly long arms. The body of this jacket in size L was perfect for my torso, but the sleeves are laughably short. Going up a size will give me an extra inch on sleeves but increases size everywhere else too much. So I'm stuck with a jacket that doesn't quite fit. Bumm... Read Moreer :( This is unlike Patagonia's other hemp coat they call a "chore coat". In Large, the chore coat fits and looks great and the sleeves are just perfect. Despite being similar--like a non-insulated version of the barn coat--the chore coat is designed to extend the length of the shoulders if need be. You can see special folds and seams on the shoulder blades for this. The barn coat lacks these, making for a very stiff shoulder that pulls the cuffs up the arm. With these relief folds, the Barn Coat would be perfect. Patagonia, update this barn coat with some more shoulder space. I'm gonna see if I can modify this coat or just live with it, or give it to someone else. Also, make the barn coat available in ink black like the chore coat. It's a beautiful and attractive color.
Very durable, warm, so many pockets
Work a farm in MA. Wear this coat in the shoulder season and winter. Can carry all my tools in this thing, they just disappear into the pockets. Brushed it up on all sorts of nails, thorns, rough metal corners/edges, and the coat's no worse for wear. It runs a bit big. Looks like wearing a large feed bag, but it's very functional. Feels l...

A nice insulated coat
I bought this for casual wear more than outside work. Although I believe it would hold up just as well as some of the other iron forge hemp clothing I have, I want to keep one in nice condition. The fit runs large ever so slightly in my opinion, but I wouldnt size down. Also, the materials in this jacket feel very high quality. The zipper and sna... Read Morep buttons seem to be intentionally picked to be as nice as possible, which helps the price point of this jacket seem justified. The details were definitely thought out. The only thing I wish Patagonia offered was a button closure like their chore coat for those who prefer not to use zippers.
Nice coat, tight fit
I like the coat and the material. I wish it was more roomy in the shoulders. There is not a lot of room for layering. The arms are slender and not as roomy as I would want in a work coat. A large double zipper would be an improvement over the small single zipper. You need to zipper up without gloves and the zipper tab is tiny.
Hi Robert, thank you for sharing this feedback on this coat. Our product designers do read these messages, so your thoughts will be seen!
Broken In like it was 10 years old brand new!
Soft, loose, great for layers and the Adirondacks. This is a work issued jacket and keeps me warm and will be a go to during off hours as the full pocket on the back is great for stuffing whatever you don't want to hold. My first hemp garment and love it. I wish the website was a bit easier to locate the jacket though. Not intuitive for me.
Was looking for a work jacket alternative to your typical Carhartt and this fit the bill. The hemp canvas is super soft right out of the package, yet seems every bit as durable as duck canvas.

Heavy, but not bulky and really warm
I was expecting a well made heavier coat based on my other Patagonia Hemp purchases. I was not disappointed.

It is sized for layers, but even without layers it is very toasty. I lov...

I bought this jacket for my husband who works exclusively outside and needed a warm, durable jacket for those harsh winter days in the Appalachian mountains. It fits like a glove. He really enjoys and uses all of the pockets! It's warm, hefty, and in two months of hard use it still looks like new! Highly recommend!
Im 6, 215 and the size L is perfect. Ive worn other brands of work coats prior to this one , and theres no comparison. The Barn Coat is by far the best Ive worn for a cold weather work coat. There is no break in period, no stiffness at all and the abrasion resistance is for real. I live in the App. Mtns if E. Tn and SW. Va and have experienced no p... Read Moreroblems after wearing for nearly 3 months. I own/operate a cattle farm, hay operation and raise pastured pork. Ive built fence, corrals, fed animals, worn to work, out to town, built fence and so on. I wear this coat daily and have yet to have an issue. Its tough, comfortable and warm. The slimmer sleeves are perfect to keep loose materials out of your way, esp when working. The tapered fit eliminates the need for a draw cord style lower hem. It is not extremely cold where I work, but is regularly into the low 20s/high teens F here and Ive had no issues, even with layering. You can move freely with this item on and have no real worries of getting snagged by things due to too much loose fitting material. All pockets are well designed and thought out and are very useful for daily chores. The collar is soft yet rigid enough to stand in wind and cold. Ive not dealt much with rain/snow, so I cannot speak to that but the coat isnt advertised as waterproof or resistant. Overall, this may be the best work coat Ive owned for the money and durability to date. I would normally wear an XL and returned an XL for a L. Size down and this coat is perfect!
Sleeves a bit tight
I'm 6'1", weigh 175, with 32" waist. M fits okay, but sleeves are tighter than I'd like.

Thought about sizing up to the L, but already returned M and L size of the ranch jacket bc M was even tighter than the barn coat, and L swallowed me whole (felt like jumping up 3 sizes instead of just 1).

This is the only review I have ever submitted online for a piece of clothing, I felt like I needed to share.. I'm 5'11 240lb and this jacket fits me great.

Read Morein the woods most of the time and the large pockets allow me to carry everything I need and still be hands free to work. You cannot feel any wind coming through the jacket, it is built heavy and the exterior is very tough. The jacket is more expensive than what I'm used to working in but you get what you pay for. I plan to buy another as a spare incase they stop making them like this. I bought the dark ash green color because where I live you do not wear clothing that resembles the color of a deer if your working in the woods during the cold months. I would like to see a dark gray or dark brown color added to the selection.
Exceeded high expectations
Based on the description and other reviews I was expecting this coat to be great, and indeed it is. Feels very heavy and durable while still being soft and flexible. Its not rigid like some other name brand canvas coats when new. Im looking forward to seeing how it wears over time. Im 510, a stocky 210lbs, and a medium is a perfect relaxed fit.
Heavy duty and versatile
I have had this jacket just for a month but have already gotten a ton of wear out of it. We are having a fairly cold fall here in the Northern Neck of VA. We are on the water just off the Chesapeake.

Also for walks with the grandkids, sitting around the fire outside and generally just hanging out. The jacket is super warm and rugged. No snags in heavy brush. Lining is great as it just slides over whatever you are wearing underneath. Roll up sleeves were super used when I was shucking oysters outside. Love all of the pockets, especially the big back one wear I store my gloves so I can use the front ones to store other stuff. Hand warmer pockets are also a great addition. Thanks as always for the care you all take in design and production. I know I will wear this one for years.
Solid barn coat
I like the hemp fabric, and the look of this jacket. Quality build. Pockets are great. The fit is good for me. Improvements: Sleeves are a little short. Snap cuff are nice but should be a little wider. Maybe a little more cut in the shoulders. More room at the top of the chest. That said, I still find this jacket to be really comfortable and warmer... Read More than I expected. Much more of a jacket than other thin barn coats. Patagonia never disappoints.
Almost, but not quite
The jacket has nice aspects. Sizing: The sizing is good, but it is also quite obscure. Let me be more clear. This jacket can fit in many different ways for many different people (body size), this is a positive aspect in many ways as well. However, I believe it is a bit too obscure to the point where the buyer will never know exactly how this will... Read More fit unless unless try it on. The return process of course makes that not so much of an issue. But still. The sizing is not as straightforward as one might be used to. Materials: The canvas on this jacket feels very tough. And it is. The pockets are all ergonomically placed. The buttons are the best part. Which brings me to the zipper. I believe this zipper not only hinders the design, but it goes against Patagonia's environmental philosophies. This jacket is a work jacket, it is meant to be strong, and last, and be functional. It is almost all of those things. This zipper, if replaced with buttons would extend the life of this jacket. Zippers are prone to breakage and don't hold nearly as strong as a solid button configuration, possibly buttons made of recycled horseshoes. This is a good barn coat, but I think being open to practical and artistic improvements is what the people need.
Perfectly designed - beautifully built
I bought this 2nd hand after discovering Patagonias work wear range.

Great coat if it's what you're looking for
This coat was kind of a pain to buy, but I'm really happy to have it. First of all, the colors are tough to judge online, which I guess is hard to avoid. I went into the store rather than buy both and return one. The fit is also a little unusual. For me (5'9", ~135 lbs.), the arms in a size S fit just fine, layered or not, but the mi... Read Moredsection is kind of loose. That works for what I was looking for (I can work in it, wear it around town, and probably even sleep in it), but the fit on me doesn't seem to line up with what some other reviewers have said. Probably best to try it on first if you can. The coat I ended up buying in-store was great until I noticed the stitching had come undone in the left hand pocket. That surprised me in a burly coat like this, but I like it enough to go exchange it for a new one. The coat will be good for chilly spring days over a light shirt, or I can layer a hoodie or puffy jacket underneath just fine. The material is soft and seems durable, and most reviews online say it's held up well. One thing I'm still curious about is whether the material can be waxed to provide a bit more rain protection.
Zip doesn't work
The biggest issue with this coat is the zipper. Look at a classic M-65 coat and the zipper should end at the natural waist (belly button) because of the movement from your hips down. If it is that wet, you shouldn't be using this or have snaps for cinching down anything past that. You could use a two way zipper, but i've only ever seen th... Read Moree canvas company that starts with a C be able to make a functional two way zipper. I'd rather just use something simple for this. I'm not a fan of the liner for this as it makes it less versatile. I think Patagonia, should look at other field coats/barn coats for this, such as the company that sounds like Hell Hell Dean company. The coats for the workwear line so far use great materials mixing quick drying polyester with durable hemp, but the designs are BY FAR the worst part. Oversize does not make for a comfortable fit using your arms all day, and downsizing makes the upper chest/arms work great at the cost of making your lower body too tight of a fit. Pockets are great.

Bought for my wife
My wife wanted my coat! I own the same one in large size. Im 73in 220lb. Its the perfect work coat for the farm. I run a poultry farm. The coat runs large so its great as a shell in the winter over a thick sweatshirt or some other Patagonia sweater product. This coat is all about the pockets! In the winter I carry a stocking cap, gloves, neck gaite... Read Morer, and baseball cap in the rear pocket. (Doubles as lumbar support when Im in the truck) My iPhone is in my right front pocket, and my flashlight, reading glasses, pen, notepad in left breast pocket. I throw in some hand lotion and a tape measure and Im ready to work. The coat now weighs twice as much. Two suggestions 1) more snaps evenly space on the main zipper cover, sometimes u just need to snap the coat in a pinch. 2) the coat is long and a parka zipper may make crouching down easier. I got my wife the small and it fits her like it fits me on the large side room for a sweater. She is normally a womans medium. I love your clothes namely your cold weather gear.
Super quality and looks
I believe I will be wearing this coat for many years. The coat is very warm and the quality is typical Patagonia. I usually buy a large but after reading the reviews I purchased a medium and it fits perfect. Have only worn it a couple times and have been complemented each time.
This jacket is warm, tough, and great looking. It does run a hair large but I expected that fit for this type of jacket.

Really short sleeves!!!
I am 6,1 and 185. The site stated same as the model that was wearing a Medium. I chose the large because I wanted it to fit. Unfortunately the sleeves barely made it past my elbows. In order for it to fit I would need at least 4added to the sleeve length. I had to return it.
Rugged, warm, dependable.
Runs slightly large as expected from a coat made for this type of work. I feel like I could take a chainsaw to this jacket and not even make a scratch. Its warm and a perfect weight for working outside. They truly tested this product perfectly with the amount of storage and range of different pockets on this jacket.
Best Coat Ever
I can tell that I will have this coat for the rest of my life. Cannot beat the quality. I am 5'9 and roughly 230 LBS with a 38 inch waist.

Actually a 4.78 star rating, however...
I bought this, after reading other happy reviews, to replace my 18 year old Carhartt jacket that's finally circling the drain. And I'm mostly very happy with it (this Patagonia one). Other reviewers stated the jacket runs large, and yes, it does. I normally buy a size large so I can layer underneath it, but I bought a medium version and I... Read More'm glad I did. It's a little roomy--but that's good! I can layer! And, it's comfortable...-ish. (And here's where the "however" in the title comes in). It IS comfortable! As long as the wind isn't blowing. Two things would vastly improve this jacket. First, either a draw cord or some sort of buttoned tabs around the waist section to snug it up around your midriff, because when the wind blows, it goes right up underneath, and even with my three layers under the jacket I get cold. It just doesn't seal at all down there. (Note: I don't do a lot of heavy manual labor in this jacket, so maybe I'd appreciate the ventilation if I worked up more of a sweat, however...). And second, it needs a few more buttons or snaps on the front flap. But on mild days it's a winner! The quality is exactly what you'd expect from this company. It's good looking and has wonderfully roomy pockets for carrying lots of stuff. It's constructed well. I like it. (Note: I haven't thrown the Carhartt out yet because it seals up pretty well, and like the guy in Monty Python's Holy Grail: it's not dead yet.)
I bought this coat for working around my cabin in the forest. The length and fit are perfect for me. (Im 57-58 tall and about 145lbs) Also the loft is perfect as well. As its not too heavy or too light. The fabric outside has the worn broken-in feel as it was described online. Overall its a great casual coat for my cabin.
Fantastic chore coat, hemp fabric is amazing, runs big
IMO this is the best chore coat on the market today. Patagonia once again hit the right balance between style and function.

One minor nit: The front zipper is functional but it feels a bit lightweight for the coat.
Best Everyday Jacket
If you are going to buy one jacket just for general winter use, this is it. Ive had it for 4 years, and it looks as if I bought it yesterday. It is warm enough to where I can use it for fall, but you can also layer. Usually I wear a basic hoodie under this jacket, and it keeps me warm in the CT winters.

I was going to use this for riding horses and associated work. There was inadequate movement in the shoulders. I had to return the jacket because there was no ease built in the shoulders.

Im a relatively active 69 year old male. Im 58, 185 pounds. 45 chest, 20 shoulders, 34 waist. 33 sleeve, 17 neck. Usually, a size large in Patagonia coats fits me very well. First off, I dont farm, ranch, or work outdoors. I just enjoy the comfort and style of a barn coat in casual settings. I have owned a couple prior to the purchase of the Pata... Read Moregonia and, for me, once theyre broken in, they simply cant be beat. I have similar hopes for the Patagonia. I purchased the Patagonia Iron Forge Hemp Canvas Barn Coat in December 2019. I waited several months before offering my views on this coat because I wanted to ensure that my impressions would be consistent over time. Because my shoulders, chest, and neck traditionally have been the critical areas of fit, I tried on both a large and a medium at the Denver Patagonia store. The large was a very comfortable (almost ideal) fit in the shoulders and chest. However, the balance of the torso was blousy; it wasnt bad, but it wasnt a fit that I was accustomed to. The medium, on the other hand, had a more of a fit that I preferred in the lower torso, yet the shoulders and chest were close to being tight. The range-of-motion in the shoulders was not restrictive, but close to it. The closest I come to layering under any coat is a flannel shirt over a t-shirt. So I felt the medium would be an acceptable fit. I ended up ordering a medium from Patagonia to get the color that I wanted (coriander brown). That said, for folks with measurements similar to mine but prefer to layer, the medium probably would not work very well. Admittedly, this past year I have been second-guessing myself as to whether I should have purchased the large. I havent had the need to layer. And I havent had any circumstances or physical activity where my shoulders felt constrained. Its just that Ive missed the comfortable drape of a size large on my shoulders. And Im sure that I would have acclimated to the larges relaxed torso shape as well. Nonetheless, the medium is serving its purpose quite well. But enough about fit. I truly enjoy the hemp construction. It was comfortable right out of the box. And as it continues to break in, it is becoming even more comfortable. Maybe I am naturally warm-natured so quite possibly this next statement may not be true for all folks, but I find this coat comfortably warm for Colorado winters. With gloves and a hat, I find no need for layering or the need for a heavier coat. I find it very effective at wind blocking. The construction is first rate; I havent seen any flaws. And it seems to be quite durable, although Ive not found the need to crawl through any barbed-wire fences lately. With my perception of the quality of the material and components, I feel this coat offers a very good price to performance ratio especially when I consider this coat to last a good number of years. All in all, Im very satisfied with this purchase.
Way to large around the midsection. Im always a large in Patagonia but this item swallowed me. Had to return it unfortunately.

Excellent Barn Coat....Exactly what I have been looking for
I really like this jacket. It is well designed and the quality of materials and construction is excellent. The fabric is tough but relatively soft.

While it does look good as far as work wear goes, you don't buy things like this for fashion, per se. Also, this thing is heavy, so I think Patagonia should have given a more durable hanging loop. I have serious doubts the hanging loop is going to last in the long haul. The hemp absorbs smells more than canvas I've noticed. No huge deal really, but this may bug some people. It is slightly annoying that the jacket doesn't completely relax to the body well if you sit down with it zipped up, but that's what you get if you want a nice, heavy-duty zipper and a jacket that holds its form. Can't have it all I guess. I would still buy it again. I would have made the inside pocket a horizontal zip instead of vertical. Vertical has been awkward for me. I would have put the drop in pocket on the right breast instead of the left, as most people (me included) are right handed. I would have loved to have an option for a detachable hood with utilizing metal buttons hidden under the back of the collar. Lastly, I would have added a third snap button half way up the zipper; a hidden one though so that it doesn't look funny. Now, all the GOOD STUFF: 1. Hemp is way better than canvas. More soft and comfy, yet more durable. I wore Carhartt for years as an electrician and loved it, but this improves upon that. It's softer. The other day I wore my leather tool bags over the coat and it was actually comfortable. I couldn't do that very comfortably with my canvas duck coats. The other day, I was loading a bunch of oak logs into my rig for firewood and caught my barn coat shoulder on a barb wire fence hard enough to pull my shoulder back as I walked and make me lose my balance. Having torn canvas work wear on nails etc many times, I thought for sure I had ripped a hole in my new jacket. However, much to my delight, I searched to find where it had torn, but to no avail. There was literally no sign of the snag. This jacket is SUPER warm and comfy, yet somehow still incredibly durable and hardy. It doesn't look like it would fray and unravel much even if I did tear it. Besides, Patagonia does repairs. 2. This thing has a TON of pockets, yet still looks stylish as far as work wear goes. It's like a jacket that seconds as a small backpack. This and room for layering underneath are the two reasons I thing the large sizing makes sense. I usually wear Medium, but in this I have Small which is perfect. If this jacket were more form fitting, I could not comfortably utilize the many pockets (such as when you try to shove your phone into the pocket of a tight pair of jeans - not comfortable). I have frequently walked around with the following in my pockets all at once and am so comfortable that I literally forget they're in my jacket: full size key ring of keys, car keys, comb, large leather wallet, cell phone, pen, beanie hat, scarf (and sometimes a small book or my small Bible). The lower back pocket struck me as super strange at first, but I've learned to love it for gloves/hats/scarves. Also, the particular style of the pockets is helpful. Having a drop in, a mini cargo, two large cargo pockets, an inner security pocket, hand warmer pockets under the large cargo pockets, and a lower back pocket gives great versatility. 3. The large size also means it's comfortable to work in, which is why it's in their work wear line. I have some other coats which are ostensibly for construction work, but they pull on my elbows, shoulders, and armpits when I'm lifting things or reaching. This coat is practical, so it's roomy for active work days. As I said above, it intentionally has layering room. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it on in the store with a thick cotton sweater underneath. 4. Despite its large size, it keeps its shape well. It doesn't look super misshapen and baggy after use. It holds its form fairly well. Part of this is aided by the adjustable cuffs. 5. The buttons and zipper seem to be really beefy and strong, which hints that they will last a long time. 6. I like the low back. Keeps you warm and dry when you sit on something cold or damp. 7. The jacket keeps me warm with just a T-shirt under it down to the mid-30s Fahrenheit (unless there's a chilling wind - then it's only good into the mid 40s). But surprisingly it still breathes pretty well if I wear it in mid 60 degree weather. Maybe this is an attribute of hemp? Not sure. 8. I like that the style dresses up and down. I can throw on nice jeans and polished boots with my hair done, and this jacket still looks sharp and eye-catching. Conversely, I can wear this thing as I work or camp and it doesn't look out of place at all. A great all-around coat. This is my first Patagonia product, and I am very pleased. I hope Patagonia's work wear line really takes off. Next, I plan on trying the Farrier Shirt and Shop Shirt.
As comfortable as a well worn old friend from the very first wear. Not too stiff, surprisingly soft, but also tough. Just warm enough on its own for cool to moderately cold days while working, loose-fitting enough to layer with a nice warm sweater or flannel for those extra cold days. From the first time I put it on, I knew it was my new favorite c... Read Moreoat. I'm almost sad to think winter will one day be over and I will need to put this jacket away for the season.
It's a BARN coat
I honesty believe this coat deserves a better average rating than is shown. Is it big? Yes. But it is a barn coat and the Pat folks do not hide that in their description. Is it too big? Perhaps. But this depends on the person. For those seeking a sleek and more form-fitting garment, you best look elsewhere. For those seeking a garment that is roomy... Read More and suitable for layering and much outdoor work, this is the ticket. I purchased this coat to replace a similar insulated and reversible flannel coat from Patagonia that had finally gone thread-bare after about 15 years. When I first received that previous garment in Large size (my normal size purchase from Patagonia), I felt it too was a bit large initially. But I grew to appreciate the room it offered and dearly loved it in the end. This new barn coat has about the exact same room in the torso. I am about 175#, 5'11" and I purchased a Large. I am an average build. If I had gone to a Medium on this, I am pretty sure the sleeves would have been too short and possibly a bit restrictive. The feel of the coat fabric is very nice and pliable. I love the slickness of the inner lining as that makes it easy to slip on over sweaters and other similar fabrics. My only wish is that the front draft flap had a third snap in the along the center. I feel that just two snaps (one on the top and one on the bottom) do not offer enough of a secure closure. But this is just me being picky. Great coat! It will last for years, I am certain.
Sizing is weird.
I tried the large and its HUGE in the mid section. I am 5'10" and 185. I could fit an entire pillow inside this jacket. I then tried the medium and felt the mid section was fine however the arms were a bit tight especially if I wore a layer underneath. I wish they put the large arms on the medium body... then it would be correct.
Soft and warm.
Have had this jacket through the winter so far. Working outdoors in the Colorado Rockies,a 30 degree day is relatively warm. This jacket has kept me warm and dry through heavy wind and snow squalls while moving pipe. Plenty of room to layer a vest or a sweater underneath and on the coldest days do. Strenuous activity and I warm up real quick. The... Read More collar is nice and stays up to keep wind out. There is a LOT of room in the Midsection as others have said so you will definitely appear larger than you are. Sleeves are the perfect length too. Highly recommend this coat to anyone who wants a warm coat that stands up to abrasion and water and rust and road salt and anything else that comes your way. Great jacket for working all day or just for looking good with a beer around a fire too
Feels well made,Nice,thick and heavy.
I bought this to replace a my favorite coat that has been repaired a bunch of times. I think I've been wearing it so long,it's in fashion again. About this coat: I wear a size XL in nearly everything. I ordered a size Large for this after reading some reviews. I am marking it as "Runs Large",but that's not entirely true a... Read Mores the shoulders are quite narrow. I can't imagine the shape of the person who fit this jacket perfectly. The mid section is far too large and bellows out a lot. It's just plain HUGE around the middle. I can't possibly wear it this way and must return it.
Awesome coat,but not perfect.
I love all the features of this jacket. Material and construction are all solid and the insulation is good,but you will need additional layers for colder temperatures. The variety of pockets is great,with the coolest being the pocket on the back. I found myself using that much more than I thought I would. I have no complaints about the zipper as it... Read More's larger than what's on most jackets. Sizing- I'm 5'11",180 and I decided on Large. I initially bought a Medium,but the arms were too small so I had to exchange. The fit is true to size for a relaxed fit item. It's big in the body and long,but it was purposely cut that way and still doesn't look bad even though it is large on me. I don't know how anyone comfortably sizes down in this jacket - when I layered under the Medium I could hardly move my arms. Even in Large the sleeves,at the elbow and shoulder,are still restrictive,which is disappointing. I wouldn't consider myself to be broad in the arms or shoulder either. However,the sleeve issue isn't enough for me to give up on this jacket. Still a solid buy if you're in the market for a cool weather work jacket.
Good comfortable coat for work or casual wear
This is a solid coat for moderately cold and dry weather. It's a lot softer than the usual cotton duck canvas. It's still pretty heavy but not as stiff. The fit is true to size in the chest with the sleeves being just a little shorter than the old technical jackets that were available in relaxed fit. Relaxed fit is good for people that la... Read Moreyer a ton,people with broad builds,or overweight people. If you don't fall into one of those categories there are plenty of other regular fit or slim fit options. My only complaint is that there's an area on the back near the neck where there's canvas inside instead of the insulation lining and that causes a cold spot in really cold weather.
I'm 6' 1" and weigh 180 lbs. I work outside on a farm. The size medium fits me. I like the all pockets and the material feels durable. It's easy to move in,but it's not warm at all. I have to wear a down vest under it all the time and add a sweat shirt under that on really cold days. Even with all those layers the medium fi... Read Morets best. The main zipper is small so I'm not sure that will hold up over time
Makes Me Want A Barn.
Longtime Patagonia fan,especially their fly fishing gear. My SST wading jacket just turned 20 years old and still rocks. Ok,the barn coat.. As mentioned in previous reviews,it IS sized big. As long as you know that going in it isn't a problem at all. I'm a rather 'portly' fellow and usually wear a XXL but ordered the XL after r... Read Moreeading the comments. Fits great through the chest,waist,shoulders. The sleeves are XL length and not XXL length. They're actually fine and finding sleeves long enough for me is always a challenge. I could still easily fit a sweater under this thing even as it's one size smaller than I usually buy. The material is crazy comfortable. Not at all like 'the other' workwear brand. I like their stuff too but it's always stiff. This coat feels like it was broken-in right out of the box and wondered if the Fed-Ex guy wore it for a month before I got it.Great pocket s and closures. Stitching is stout and the zipper appears to be strong,something 'the other' workwear brand always seems to have issues with. The collar is nice but wish it were a bit taller in the back. As far as warmth,I guess that's a relative thing. I'm in New England and haven't found it as warm as some have described. Not sure I'd wear it snowblowing w/o layering-up,but in warmer climes it'd likely be fine. Also,wore it out in a really cold rain just before Thanksgiving and the material really seemed to suck up anything that fell on it. Even a bit damp I still looked pretty darn cool wearing it. I'd definitely buy it again and would recommend it to anyone that asked.
Great Coat,but too big
I can tell this coat is really well made and will last,but it's way too big. I'm a wind turbine tech up north and a smaller guy and Patagonia seems to make the only jackets that tend to fit,but relaxed fit might as well just mean 2 sizes too big. Small Patagonia jackets always are the perfect fit for me,but I'm swimming in this. It&#... Read Morex27;s so bagging I have no choice,but to return this and look at better options. I really wish they didn't make it a relaxed fit or at least added different smaller fits.
