Warm, comfortable, durable, and was a very good price. I like the rugged work coat look that it has. Came with some kind of foul smelling oil saturating it. After numerous washes the harsh chemical smell is mostly gone. Would have gotten five stars if it didn't come with a persistent stench.

I really do like the way this coat looks and fits but I can't get past the smell. It smells like a wet canvas tent. I spoke with customer service about suggestions for remedying the smell issue and they suggested that I wash it. So I have washed it twice and it still is unwearable. Not sure what i can do with it.

I purchased this coat for my dad as a gift, to be a working in the garage-to-running errands coat. It's really very nice and heavy, very durable. The bonus is that it looks really nice, not like a work coat at all! The lining was nice and soft too. My dad really liked this coat! I only gave this 4 stars, however, because of the fit. My dad is a pretty standard L, but this coat in a size L was a little too small everywhere and the sleeves were extremely short. I exchanged for an XL, and while it looked a little boxy on him, he said it was more comfortable than the L. The sleeves were still a little on the short side in the XL, but were long enough to warrant keeping this nice coat. Bottom line is, I would recommend this coat to anyone....as long as you don't have longer arms!

I always like to have reviews to go off of before I purchase an item so I thought I would add.
So, I just received the jacket today and let me tell you this is everything Ive been looking for in a coated canvass jacket, Minus the Smell of the coating.
I bought the Java, which I thought was black but its more like a super, super dark brown, close enough to black that Ill keep it because I like the jacket so much, and I'm a picky person.
Its pretty heavy so I can imagine that it will be toasty as a bear in the winter months. Heavy duty canvass with a nice wax coating, zippers and snaps are heavy duty. A nice fluffy Flannel lining inside.
It just has a rugged look to it but no so much that if you wore it out around town that youd look like a construction worker.
It no like a carharrt jacket or anything.
The fit is nice, not very baggy, more form fitting which I love.
Im 5,10, 180lbs and I went with the large, fits perfectly.
All in all, if youre in the market for a canvass jacket this is a top choice.
FOLLOW UP: Ive had this jacket for 4 or 5 days now and the only major problem I have with this jacket is this: Whatever this jacket is coated with, wax or oil, smells very very strong and it is not a great smell. Ive had it hanging out for days and I have even washed it in cold water and hung it to dry. I am hoping that this smell will fade away or I WILL be returning it. Other than that I like the jacket.

Really nice jacket with a nice pockets. It's very warm, my first week with the jacket I went camping in the snow, with night temps in the high 20's I stayed warm with just the jacket and a flannel shirt on.

I want to love this jacket but it STINKS like OIL! It's OILED and not "WAXED". I've washed it (so can't return it) and it stills smells bad. This is THE jacket that I've been looking for, but I am so disappointed. The oil smell is so bad that I can't hang it in the closet or on the coat hook next to me at the office. I really like the jacket, but will have to keep washing it until one day it stops to reek!

The jacket is a slim cut, if you want to wear a fleece under the jacket, make sure it is a thin fleecy, or up size the jacket. I'm a size US large and for the winters we have in Australia, I don't need to wear an extra thermal layer, just a long sleeve tee, making the cut of the jacket ideal.Be aware, a waxed cotton jacket is heavier (and what I was after) than a synthetic constructed jacket. I've worn it out in 32F and its warm...bargain!
