Comfortable good looking -

I wanted this jacket for sometime but could never find my size anywhere. Finally found one and bought it immediately. Upon arrival it was very stiff could almost stand up but now a few months latter and wearing it 10 times its soft feels great and looks good with Jeans to dress pants. Its more of a Taupe color the fir is True to sizing.

I've hesitate to write reviews but always read them; been looking at this jacket for a long time; price went up; then I got a sale and coupon and ordered; everything about the jacket is perfect; styling, warmth and fit. I have to say I just wore it out this week on a cold day and it was very comfortable and warm and again attractive and stylish......I hate cold weather but almost look forward to cooler days when I can wear this jacket....looks like orvis has discontinued this jacket......I hope not.....thanks for a great jacket.
The jacket I dreamed of. -

When some appeared in the sale I couldn't resist. I'm a 44 chest, but long arms and getting a bit stout round the middle so I bought a 46. It fits comfortably leaving room to wear a sweater under in winter. I'm looking forward years of service from this practical, well pocketted Jacket.
Very nice jacket -
By: RedBug from Seattle, WA
Cons: The jacket arrived quite wrinkled. The catlog picture displays the jacket as very casual when in fact it looks quite tailored. I immediately removed the shoulder pads to give a more casual apperarance. Pros: The classic styling and color will provide me many years of wear. Reviews stasted that the color was not true to the catalog picture. However, I found the color to be accurate. I was concerned that the leather would be too thin becuase it was described as being the weight of a flannel shirt. To my surprise the leather is quite robust as well as being very soft and supple. I have wanted the Bandera Jacket for over 5 years but never took the initiative to place it on order. The day I bought the coat, it appeared that Orvis was closing the style out, as there were only two sizes left. Fortunately one of those two sizes was my size, so I decided that ownership of this fine jacket , was meant to be. In my opinion, it is one of the best outerware purchases made in my life. Chances are, it will last me a life time.

After chatting with customer service I got the size right. Shipping was faster that I expected and very nicely presented in the package. Fits perfeclty and gets better for each day. I want lots of pockets which is why I looked to the Bandera. Now I have a pocket for everything. Best are the large side pockets that easily swallow lots. Even my Kindle... It's nice and heavy and surprisingly warm. Love it!
Great Coat -
I love the extended sizes offered for this jacket, it is easier to find an exact fit. I wish Orvis offered more extended sizing in their other products. The coat itself is heavier than I expected, but it has a great look and style.
Not for me - sadly -

I had wanted one of these for years and tried them on a number of times. I finally took the plunge. However when it was delivered I had to accept that it just did not fit me that well, even though it was the correct size. I have therefore returned it, using the superb Orvis guarantee. Speedily dealt with, as always, by customer service. Just disappointed that it did not live up to my own expectations and hopes.
the best money can buy -
i wish i knew about this coat before its the best its comfortable. you put it on you never want to take it off,
The Truth -

Excellent quality, really well made, perfect fit. Service was top notch. Unfortunately I found it just too heavy a garment to be comfortable. Maybe if I was 40 years younger it would not have been a problem !!

impresive presentation but stiff, choose size 1 number up from your size for a perfect fit.
