Great Jacket

Reviewed by Horace from Northeast on Saturday, December 2, 2017
This jacket is nicer than it looks in the picture. It’s a high quality item that, like most Filson products, is really too good for its intended purpose. The Mackinaw wool is the best- good weight but not bulky, finely woven, smooth finish, soft. Details like the “action back,” pockets, linings, and heavy duty zippers are very well done. Yes, the hand pockets are high but therefore less likely to snag on stuff if you’re actually working. Filson takes the “work” aesthetic seriously. I’m 5’10”, 175, size 42, & the medium fits just right - sleeves in large would be too long for me. Fit is designed for active wear and a reasonably athletic build. It’s a warm, 3 season jacket, not a big heavy winter coat. USA made quality like this is not cheap but the STP price is a good value. Worth it and be prepared that if the fit is right, people are likely to notice how good it looks, whether you want that kind of attention or not.
