Great work coat

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Iggy from Western WA state on Monday, February 21, 2011
I got this coat for my son who is a college student but works part time in an iron fabricating shop and also does construction. The iron work is extremely hard on clothes, so he needed a very durable coat. He's 6'0 and 170 lbs, & wears a size medium. He wanted a coat that would keep his back covered when kneeling and bending but wasn't too long to get in his way. The front hits very top of thigh, low hip area, back just covers the rear. The fit is relaxed enough for layering, & he's able to wear a long sleeved thermal shirt & hooded sweatshirt underneath & is still able to move comfortably. Sleeve length is just right, they don't ride up the arms when raised and have an inner knitted cuff and are quilted nylon lined for easy on/off. The zippers are very heavy and smooth operating. The main zipper is 2-way. The lining makes it warm without weight. The only negative is that it didn't come with a hood, but the collar has snaps for one. I've washed this coat about 3 times so far on the heaviest, longest cycle and nothing has fallen off, unravelled, etc. Dry time about an hour and no shrinkage. Good value, I would highly recommend it.
