Love this jacket. My wife originally bought me the XL size because thats what I wear in other Patagonia styles (down sweater, nano puff), but I was swimming in it.

I bought this jacket at the start of 2020. Wore it into the early spring and then brought it back out during the last month or so. It has been nothing but an absolute work horse.

Fantastic all around jacket
Granted, I'm not using it for real work in the field, but this jacket is everything I've been looking for. It's warm when it's cold, but not to the point where you sweat in the jacket and if it's warmer out it doesn't keep you too hot either.
Well made and attractive
I purchased both a medium and a small and will keep the medium. I am about 5'11", 180lbs with a muscular build and a fairly slim waist and normally wear a medium.

This outshines any of the Carhartt jackets around. It's warmer and more flexible. The length keeps the wind from riding up the back.

Solid however flawed
This is a well made, thoughtfully designed coat. The lining is a nice touch. The exterior fabric feels like its going to last a few winters of log splitting.

Great style but wearing out to fast
Im a huge Patty workwear fan. The style, and warmth are there but the jacket is coming apart way too fast on me for how much I paid for it. The inside of the pockets are coming undone and seems on the jacket are coming undone that's why I gave it only three stars.
We are sorry to hear this and we appreciate the feedback on this. We expect much more out of our product and hope you can [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) this back to us under our warranty.
Good work jacket
I am 6'0" 210lbs and ordered this jacket as a medium. Even so, I usually wear a t-shirt and a micro-fleece vest underneath comfortably. It is not very warm in the chest area but has a comfortable cut. I have been wearing it through some serious chores and found it durable and comfortable.
Pocket seam tore out in first season
So Ill start off by saying I truly love this coat!! Ive worn it primarily around our farm and while working in the shop.

Great jacket made better with beeswax
I love this coat. It’s simply the most durable piece of clothing I’ve ever owned, and the seams and cut make moving around and doing real work easy.

My new favorite jacket
I wanted to try something non-fleece for a change, and this is my new favorite jacket for everyday use.

Read Morece mountain jacket (and it isn't), but it is sufficiently warm and wind-breaking that (with a fleece under it) I've been comfortable motorcycle commuting in 40 Farenheit mornings (sometimes with heavy fog or brief soft rain) which is impressive to me, given the windchill effect from sustained highway riding. I would reiterate, however, that this jacket is ideal for common everyday uses, not for outdoor activities more strenuous than walking. It is heavy, bulky, and does not breathe well (hiking with only a t-shirt under it resulted in the inner sleeves sticking to my arms, which was uncomfortable). Also note I live at ~1,500 ft. elevation in the central Sierra, so when I say the warmth is appropriate, I mean for being outside in ~30 to 60 Farenheit.
Worth the price
I used to work in Alaska where Carhartts' rule, but this jacket beats any of my Carhartts coats hands down. It is far more comfortable and has way more attention to details that make it a pleasure to wear, not just 'work clothing'; and it is warmer. The fit may be a bit tricky, but once dialed in correctly, it is damn near perfect.
I ordered this jacket on 11/4 and it arrived 11/6 -- which funnily enough was my birthday (thanks for that @Patagonia!) Things I like about this jacket: * Warm with layers, warm without. * Made from Hemp -- I really liked the fact that it's made of a more sustainable material. * Blocks wind -- Even when it's incredibly windy out, I don&... Read More#x27;t feel a thing. * Sleeves are tapered on the inside similar to a sweater, keeping the wind out. * Excellent for layering. Things I don't really like (that are honestly pretty minor): * Pills a little bit, but it's honestly really minor. * I wear a watch, and the friction between my watch and the sleeve opening creates a bit of pilling. This can easily be fixed with a disposable razor, but it's overall a minor annoyance. * Some loose threads, but I was able to remove/fix them. In regard to the pilling of the outside, this (apparently) is something normal for this jacket. I chatted with a customer service rep and they went and looked at an actual jacket to confirm this -- and I really appreciated that they did that instead of reading from a script. In regard to the fit and finish, it's listed as "relaxed fit" which I think is a very accurate description of this jacket. I normally wear a medium sized jacket and I was looking for something I'd be able to layer with. If you're not looking for something to layer with, maybe go a size down if you want it to look less "relaxed" and more form fitting. Overall, I've been wearing this jacket almost every day since I got it and it looks and feels great -- 10/10 would recommend!
Amazingly light, flexible yet warm
Size S fits my 5'10" 147 lb husband well. He can still wear a medium layer underneath for when our Montana winter gets chillier. The outer canvas is nubbly, yet flexible, not like the duck canvas on similar-looking coats from that other company. This is also lighter weight than those other coats which he also appreciates.

Since I read the reviews
Since I read the reviews before buying, it’s worth chiming in for the next person. I’m a broad shouldered male, pretty much a medium always, but the medium for this jacket was generously cut. Baggy and the trunk was like a bell. Good for layering a lot of things underneath, but without a waist cinch it was too big. More like a carhartt jacket, comf... Read Moreortable but designed for someone...big boned. The small is much more trim and means less layering options underneath, but it looks good and the arm movement doesn’t diminish. Wrist opening, as others have mentioned, is a little snug. Shirt plus base layer plus this works fine. Otherwise, the other reviewers are spot on., Well made, heavy, good zippers and fabric. It’ll age well and serve as a three season layer barring the cold days. Still seems a little too new and nice to do mucky work in. As our planet drowns in plastic, it’s nice to wear real materials-this jacket plus a wool mid layer keeps the conscience clean(er!).
I don't normally write reviews, but I really like this jacket. It feels sturdy, and the fit is great.

I Love This Jacket
Despite Patagonia's poor marketing message with this jacket (you've surely read the comments across social from working men and women.) this is an awesome piece of gear. My career doesn't involve working outside or using my hands, but I do love spending my free time outdoors, camping and hiking. For me this jacket is: • Warm - I... Read More can wear this stand alone easily down to 20 without any physical exertion • Functional - 5 Large Pockets (I would have liked a 2nd chest pocket) • Very Comfortable (cuffs feel great, body length is nice, fabric comes super soft and supple, not stiff) • Stylish - It just looks good! I'm happy to wear it into the office, around town, while camping, and any other activity that calls me outside The only 'Cons' I can possibly think others may have are the following: • Price (many are sensitive to this for a 'workers' jacket) • Weight - while I enjoy the heft of the jacket, there are far more functional pieces just as warm, but this one's built for work and to be durable. Your puff jacket doesn't serve as a 'working' jacket. • Poor Marketing Communication - Patagonia got a lot of flack for poor safety and general work demonstration while advertising this line of product. If you can get past that this is an amazing piece of gear! Also worth mentioning, I bought this as a stand alone jacket, not to be layered with several other articles of clothing. Order DOWN 1 full size if you want it to fit like a normal jacket. I'm a Large normally, but a Medium fits perfectly. 5'8" 178lbs 44" Chest Hope that helps!
Love the jacket. Nice fit and look. Bought it for the field cruising rough terrain with lots of bramble. Only issue so far is the interior cuffs were sewn in asymmetrically so the right one is way out compared to the left which bugs me a bit and also gets snagged on thorns. We'll see how it holds up over the winter.
The material is really sturdy, yet soft. The arm length and length to waist is perfect (XS) but the shoulders sit too wide and the opening for the neck is still a bit big. However, excellent range of motion in my arms. I bought this for work. Wish there were snap button adjustments at the waist to keep out the draft.

I am 21 years old, about 5' 11" and just under 160 lbs. I typically wear this jacket for casual wear. When I first saw this jacket online, I really wasn't enthused about it. The pictures make it look somewhat boxy and unflattering and don't do the jacket justice in terms of its fit, style, durability, and warmth. I wasn'... Read Moret planning to purchase until I went in to a store, tried it on and instantly fell in love with it. It's stylish, extremely durable, and all you need on a frigid Seattle day to protect you from wind and weather. The sales rep in the Seattle workwear store told me he wears it nearly every day in the winter months and doesn't feel the need to add any other jacket. Pros: Looks great! It is a simple and stylish jacket that keeps you warm and dry at the same time. It's durable! The outer layer is thick and tough, and the hemp material provides that extra durability. It's warm! The multiple layers serve as a wall to keep the cold out and the warm in. It's comfortable! The inside is lined with a cozy material that feels good against your skin. The sleeves have a snug hem at your wrist that is soft and resides under the hemp outer liner. This keeps the cold out of your sleeves. It's not constricting! The flaps in the back allow you to move your arms freely and not feel like you are wearing a straitjacket. The hemp is pretty tough and not very stretchable so the flaps give you some much-needed mobility. Cons: Runs a little big for me. I usually always wear a Small in Patagonia jackets and shirts, I sized down to an XS for this jacket. The XS fits perfectly for me. Not fully waterproof. The outer layer definitely holds up to a little drizzle but at the end of the day, you might get a lil' wet. I am thinking of adding a wax to the outside to make it more waterproof, I just have to talk to Patagonia customer service to figure out the best way to do that. To be continued... Not a whole lot of color selections. Definitely a small point but would have LOVED an olive green colorway in this jacket. Who this jacket is for: People doing construction or labor outside. In the winter it will definitely stand up to the weather and the work. People looking for a stylish winter jacket. Looks great with a hoodie underneath or just solo! Who this jacket is not for: People who run very warm. Some people might find that the jacket runs a little too warm when fully zipped, but they can always unzip a little or unbutton a button or two. I would definitely recommend to a friend! Hope this helps!
Sizing- I’m 6’0, 200lb, and I normally go in between sizes for Patagonia, M and L. I took a M in this jacket, and I think it was the right way to go. The jacket feels solid. It’s got a good weight to it. Not extremely heavy, but definitely heavier than it looks in pictures. I like the sewn in elastic wrist covers, they keep the draft out. I was... Read More pleasantly surprised with the fit of this jacket- not as boxy as the description made it sound. At my size, I can still maybe layer a flannel shirt or extra long sleeve shirt underneath, but thats about it.

The cuffs on this jacket should be buttoned or snap. It is a tight squeeze trying to get my hands through that snug opening. Otherwise an excellent comfortable work jacket. But there is not a time I put this jacket on with out wishing for a buttoned cuff.
We are sorry to hear about the cuffs on your jacket, this sounds frustrating for sure! We will reach out to you privately to give you all you need to return, just in case.

Though I don't have huge forearms, as a climber it would be nice to have a better ratio where things didn't feel so tight. I even considered cutting out the internal cuffs. I hope that in future iterations of this jacket, Patagonia will make the wrist/cuff area a little larger. Overall though, I do love this jacket, those damn cuffs though...
I've had this jacket for over a year now and I'm very satisfied. The canvas exterior is very, very strong and fits comfortably over a hoodie or other lighter jacket. The front hand pockets are very deep but don't bulge out like other jackets. The buttons and zipper on this thing are insanely sturdy. Still looks like when I bought it ...

Great Farm Jacket
I'm so impressed with this jacket. I love the quality and broken-in feeling. After reading all the reviews, I too purchased one size smaller and took a chance (usually a SM in this brand) and it fits perfectly. Even in the smaller size, I can still wear a shirt and hoodie underneath (layering is important over here in WA). I'm so impresse... Read Mored, I'm now thinking about getting the work wear vest.
I purchased this about 4 months ago and waited to write about it until I’ve put it through the ringer. First off, I’m 6’4” but really lean and ended up with the L as a perfect fit. Based on other reviews I started with the M and had to swap it out (without any trouble) because the length in the arms wasn’t quite there. I live on a farm and work in ... Read Morea wood / steel shop. I’ve worn this jacket pretty much every day since purchasing and it’s held up better than anything I’ve had in the past. It’s super comfortable, good looking and rugged as hell. The generous pockets let you keep a pair of gloves in there all the time and a carpenters pencil in the chest is great for me. My only real beef with it (and it really isn’t a big deal at all) is that my hands are always pretty torn up and there’s something about the inside lining of the pockets that catches on all my scrapes and callouses. Overall I can’t say enough good things about this coat. It’s become like a wallet to me: I just never leave home without it.
My Favorite Jacket
My parents got this for me as an incredibly considerate xmas gift, and I've worn it nearly ever day for the three months since then.

I wear a size Large, and at 6' 200lbs it may be just slightly big on me, but more by puffy-ness and not... Read More length. The hand pockets are lined and keep bare hands protected from the elements well, and the coat holds up very well in the rain and snow that I've been caught in. I'd highly recommend it for any surveyor/outdoorsmen or anyone looking for something to wear while doing simple outdoor chores in the colder months.
Can't Say Enough (A++)
As great of a purchase I've made to date through Patagonia (big statement there). This jacket is fairly loose fitting (I prefer size L), so those of you who may prefer something more form fitting, I'd consider sizing down yet bear in mind that while this jacket is highly fashionable, the intention is more work related. That said, the extr... Read Morea goes a long way with range of motion plus affords the opportunity for painless layering underneath.

Thoroughly recommended.
Best coat I have for ranch work
I am considering stockpiling. This is hands down the best coat I have. Feeding horses, fixing fences, putting up hay, clearing brush, harrowing pastures, this is my go to coat. Yesterday filling water troughs I got a lot of mud on me, this coat barely gets dirty and wet mud just beaded off. Love it.
A true "ranch jacket" only has pocket that have a flap over them to keep such things as hay and dirt from filling them up. Great looking jacket but not for a working ranch, or yard for that matter...close but no cigar...This is a comment only, I do not own this jacket but just noticed the pockets. Every item made by Patagonia that I have ... Read Moreever owned has been extremely well made. I am sure this is a great coat, just not "ranch ready"....
Long Lost Jacket
I was skeptical about buying this jacket as it is fairly expenisive. I read every review about 2-3 times to get an idea of what others thought about it and to help me decide. This was one of the best jackets I have owned in my life. The fit is larger, I usually wear a medium in patagonia but a small in this style fits me almost too perfect. For ref... Read Morerernece I an 5'10 147ish pound with an athletic climber build. My wingspan is also 5'10 and the sleeves fit perfect even as I raise my arms over head. The jacket does not really need to broken in but the longer you wear it the softer the material gets which is very nice. The mobility is great as I have never felt very restricted wearing it, shoulder rotation is nice. The only things I wish were different are the pockets and length. I wish there more inner pockets and that the inner zip pocket had a larger opening. It would also be nice if they made a hoody version. I would also like if the jacket was an inch longer at the bottom but that's just me being picky. All and all this is a great jacket. About everytime I wear it out I get a compliment on it which is usually by a female if that matters to you.

I have always done well with Patagonia's XL jacket sizing in the past. I am 6'4", 240lbs. and athletically built. So I was surprised when I had to return my XL and request a XXL.

I live in a very windy area and drafty coats are useless, so this fit is a problem. I am writing to make readers aware of the size changes, and encourage Patagonia's new line to follow after Dickies.com and offer a Tall and Big option. I rated this product at 3 stars only because of the fit. The exterior is durable and heavy (weight) which is similar to other outer workwear, though more stylish, durable, and environmentally friendly (thank you Patagonia). The interior is very warm and well constructed (typical Patagonia). Overall the jacket is awesome and i would still recommend this to someone, as long as it is a good fit. I would give it an easy 5 stars if it was a better fit for me. Patagonia, PLEASE offer a XLT (tall) options like some of the other work wear competitors! I love your products and would keep this shirt if the fit was better!!! thanks.
I'm 6'3", 180 and am routinely in-between an M an an L, so I ordered both (and kept the better-fitting one).

Went through many jackets from Carhartt and Walls but was never satisfied. Finally landed on this one and I'm blown away. I build wooden furniture outside year round in Louisiana.

Its durable as hell, looks beautiful, lifetime warranty, has excellent movement, keeps me extremely warm with just a thin shirt on underneath, and i don't get that freezing "wet cold" that i got from other jackets. Super soft as well. The ONLY things I may have an issue with is that the for arms are tight and the bottom is about 2 inches too large in circumference, which is for layering i assume. Forearms are a personal problem with everything though because i'm an active person who climbs/boulders 3-5 times a week and does CrossFit in 4 times a week at least so I have more mass there. I bought a medium and i'm a 5' 11 175lb athletic build. 10/10 would buy this sexy thing again. This will be my companion for the next 15 years.
Classic Look with the Toughness to back it up. Needs better design for warming pockets.
Cons first: Zipper needs to be upgraded and fleece lining needs to be removed from pockets. Hay likes fleece more than a magnet needs steel. The "Hand warming" pockets are pretty much useless until each piece of hay is plucked from them. Sleeves need to be widened for layering and the elastic cuffs don't fit with a watch. Suggestion ...

Tough as hell and plenty warm for Wyoming winters.
I went to my local retail store to try this jacket on as I’m usually between a medium and a large. I’m 6’1 175lbs.

I own a few carhartt jackets that have all been retired for now as this jacket is my new go to. As with all Patagonia goods - you won’t be disappointed.

A Perfect Winter Jacket!
I have one of the older Patagonia canvas barn coats (uninsulated), so I got this one for winter wear. I need a durable bomb-proof warm jacket as getting firewood is a daily chore.

I have bought a lot of Patagonia stuff over the years but this jacket is as close to perfection as it comes.
I love this coat... BUT... As this line is aimed at the construction industry, it would be good to widen the forearm area. My forearms are sausaged into the sleeves when I'm only wearing a T-shirt.

Ranching involves ... Read Morea lot of wrestling of heavy equipment and occasional animals. The jackets are beautiful, the fabric has held up just fine and will likely last a long time. But whoever specified a narrow gauge plastic zipper on the front of a jacket that is expected to do actual manual work probably has never been to a ranch before. So now the jackets are effectively useless and no longer worn. My friends otherwise like the jackets, and one talked about trying to have a metal zipper sewn in the next time they go to Bismarck. Being the company you are I wouldn't be surprised if an offer to replace the zipper were offered. If you are willing to with a proper heavy gauge metal zipper like all most all other work wear have it would be much appreciated. Regards

Excellent Work Coat
I purchased this coat to replace an old Carhartt work coat. I am a carpenter and work outdoors during the cold Northeast months. The ease of movement with the hemp fabric has been a huge upgrade over the stiffness of the Carhartt duck canvas. Based on the fit of the Farrier shirt I ordered a large which is a size down from my usual XL

You can put you hands literally above your head and the this jacket wont move its position on the waist! amazing fit,and freedom. I haven't tested it in the cold as of yet but iam confident it will be as warm or warmer than anything comparable.

Great coat, Iron Forged indeed
Once I received the coat, it was much heavier than I anticipated which was a good thing. I really like the ribbed elastic wrist feature which allows for easy hand movement and keeps the cold out.

I really like canvas workwear jackets, they're stylish and they last a long time. The problem is I'm a thin guy. I'm 6 ft and weigh 150 or so.

Great working and looking jacket
I bought this jacket and have been thoroughly impressed with its fit and warmth. I'm big across the shoulders and usually wear an XL in Patagonia coats and jackets,but the large was good in this model. The jacket is a lot better looking work casually than I expected too in the black.
Received this for a Christmas present to replace a Carhart that I gave to my son because I hated it. The fabric has a wonderful hand to it and has none of the stiff abrasiveness of the Carhart.

Other than that,this jacket is perfect for the way I use it.
Dig it. Only 2 suggestions..
First Ill start off by saying I dig the jacket. I have put it through the ringer these past 5 months or so and it has held up quite well. I work on a Vineyard on the western slope of CO and it has handled the cold and all Mother Nature has thrown its way. I only have two suggestions that would improve the design of the coat.. 1. The two hand pocket... Read Mores need a zipper. The way the opening is angled it allows everything to fall right in the pocket. If you are working with a chainsaw forget about it. Your pockets will be full of saw dust in a hot minute. 2. The Collar is a bit loose and allows heat to escape. It would be awesome If the collar went up a little higher on the neck and were a little snug fitting when zipped up all the way so the heat would stay in. Kind of like the collar on all the Puff Jackets (not exactly but you know what I mean.) Those two things aside this is a great work jacket. Excited to test out the other Work Wear products.
Better watch out Carhartt
I have owned the the most popular brand of work jackets for almost 40 years. I was skeptical at first but I decided to take a chance with this jacket. When I received it I was happy that I did.

It's softer and more comfortable than the other work jackets that I own. They are 10 to 30 years old and have been washed countless times. The double reinforced elbows are a great added feature.

The insulation is the bomb... extremely warm and windproof. The internal cuffs in the sleeves are a welcome addition. The zipper is excellent quality. The full-length placket that snaps is a plus. This jacket definitely has some weight to it but so does a concrete block. This jacket is sizing is very similar to the major competitors jacket. I ordered my regular XXL size. I'm 6'4" 250 lbs. Because of the relaxed fit I have plenty of room to move or add layers if necessary. Great job with this jacket Patagonia! It's nice to see you guys making burly stuff again! I now own two of these jackets.... one of each color. I'm quite certain that they are going to outlast me.
Excellent work jacket worth the price.
I'm glad I picked this up. It's going to be my new daily work jacket in the colder months. The material is softer than it looks but you can tell it's strong. All the stitching is rock solid and it feels broken in right out of the box. The zipper is substantial and I like being able to button up the front as well. The collar is one of... Read More my favorite features because it stands up solidly and really keeps the wind off your neck. The insulation seems fine. I haven't had it out in heavy wind so I can't speak to that,but it has held up well enough in freezing temps. There is room to layer if needed. Sizing- I' 5'11" 180 and I bought a Large (my size in all Patagonia jackets). Despite recommendations in the reviews,I opted to not size down,and I'm glad I made that choice. The jacket is slightly large on me (or at least larger than I would usually wear),but it doesn't look goofy by any means. The sleeve and body length is perfect and I have no trouble in the arms or across the shoulders while bending or stretching. It's the internal volume that is the large part of this jacket. I don't mind this at all,as it leaves room to layer. If I sized down,the sleeve length would no longer be optimal and it would be tighter across the shoulders as I've experienced before when sizing down in relaxed fit items. Obviously it would fit everyone differently,but if you're buying this jacket for work purposes,I'd recommend not sizing down. If you want to wear it as a casual jacket,you'd be fine going one smaller.
This jacket is a rare miss from Patagonia for me. I'm 6'2" / 185 lbs and the large was very ill fitting.
