    Well, I did send this one back. It's a quality garment, but I just wasn't comfortable with it. It is stiff (yes, that's generally a good thing for this type of garment) but to the point of not feeling comfy. Plus, it was difficult getting the garment on and off over a simple sweatshirt. It is not lined. It would be perfect if you were wearing just a light base layer, but anything else sticks just a bit too much. Also, I really wish it had a two-way zipper. And--this sounds silly--but I wish it had the "Filson" label or logo on the outside of it more prominently. I am proud of my Filsons and like to flaunt them...what can I say? This jacket was just a bit too plain. So it went back. I did order a Medium, which fit quite well. I am 5'9" and 150 pounds and generally wear a size 6-8.

    I ride my bike to get around in the Pacific Northwest, and was looking for something waterproof, reasonably nice-looking and not made in a sweat shop. I don't think this is actually waterproof, but I wasn't expecting that. So far it's kept me dry in a light drizzle, and it otherwise completely fits the bill (which is not an easy one to fill. My plan is to waterproof this further with home-made beeswax/oil mix). Well made, not the most stylish ever, but I actually like how it looks on me more than the I was expecting from the picture. I'm 5'4'' 145 lbs and the medium fits fine with plenty of room for layers underneath.

    The creases (mentioned in someone else's review) are not an issue for me. Went away. I wouldn't consider myself a slob, but not a neat-freak either. This is a functional, attractive outerwear garment that I expect to wear well. I just wish it had a hood.

    Filson. Plain, durable, old-fashioned, no bells or whistles. Will be handed down to the next generation. Filson goods, at full retail, are on the pricey side, so Sierra provides a great deal.

    Very nicely made with great detail. Looks nice on and is comfortable to wear. No lining so would have to layer if very cold outside.

    Comment on previous reviewer's experience with fold lines. She doesn't own a hair dryer?
    This fabric is proofed, which means that over time it gets both a characteristic patina and use wrinkles appear. It is readily re-proofed using Filson supplied wax. U-tube has examples from other waxed garmets.
    I have a Filson shelter cloth hunting jacket (and several tin verions) and wear it around town sometimes.
    My wife has a waxed coat that I asked her to retire after many (factory) patchings and rebuilds and 20 years of service.
    Wish Filson made this in a men's version.

    A very cool rugged windbreaker, and IT'S MADE IN THE U.S.A.! I was looking for alternative to a Barbour, and this fits the bill. It's a very basic design. No liner, no inside pockets. Filson make's hunting clothes, so if you are looking for luxury, try Barbour, or Belstaff. Think of this as more of an alternative to a denim trucker jacket...

    This is a well-made jacket, but it came folded and the wrinkles have not hung out. It is paraffin-soaked cotton and CANNOT BE IRONED! (I checked with STP and they checked with the mfr.) This is going back. Otherwise it was just what I wanted. So sad.
