    Nice fit. Can't believe it retails for $325 though.

    Wears like a shirt but fully lined...even the sleeves...which are plenty long and easy entry. It's not oil-able and is not shelter cloth..it's dry. Fits snug like an old levi or Eisenhower jacket but moves better. I'm 6' and 215lbs with a 36 waist and the Large is a tiny bit snug. I got the XL in Tan too for extra $. Still waiting on that one. Now I have 3...2 to give as presents. The Large seems like my old size 40 filson wool twill cruiser now out of production too. Both are snug but ok under a light shirt. Both would probably be fine for 200 lbs and a 34. I wear an unlined 42 Double Mac wool cruiser and it feels a bit bulky under heavy moleskin shirts but it's double thick wool already. Compared it to Cabela's roughneck cotton XL workshirt which I love...the Filson L is way more snug and there is a bit of arm restriction but OK. The buttons pull just a tiny bit for me now but is "untucked" so it's comfortable even bending down. There are actually hand warmer type pockets under the lower two patch pockets. All the snaps are solid filson...the main buttons are like the old Army fatigue shirt buttons...raised on a stem but they are some kind of PVC, not metal. The Filson just might be tougher because its got a "harder" hand. The poplin shell is very fine but dense, almost like Ventile cloth the RAF used in WWII...it's quiet when you walk. That's why it probably cost $$$. It's a dry finish and the liner is smooth not flannel so it moves with you over a shirt...even a flannel one. It definitely feels heavier than even a heavy work shirt and is Made in USA all the way! It may be light but it should be great for hot woods. Can't tell how much brush it will take but more than your typical work shirt.

    At the time of this writing, the jacket description indicates that it is made of tin cloth but it is not. It is made of a cotton/nylon blend and fairly light. It seems well made like all Filson garments but if you are looking for a tin cloth jacket, look elsewhere. I would say that the material weight is equivalent to a flannel shirt. I may return my purchase as this item is more light weight than what I was expecting.

    This is not a 15oz tin cloth jacket. It is lightweight and discontinued by Filson. I called Filson and Sierra Trading post and advised them of the inaccurate description when I first received it, and it remains unchanged. I like this product, but buyer beware. If you are looking for a lined heavyweight Tin Cloth jacket, this is not it. It is light weight, more like a windbreaker for Filson, it will be nice in the spring and early/late summer. It is not a jacket to work in. The photo is accurate.

    This is not tin cloth, but some kind of dry-wax material, I think. Much thinner and more flexible than tin, more like a shirt fabric and it is lined with an even thinner material. Color is more green than photo, think old Army coat color. Tag says don't machine wash or dry clean, just brush or wipe off. It wrinkles and has some color variation. If I was going to work in it, I would get a size larger for freedom of movement and layering. Would probably work for light weight wind and rain protection.
