Bandera in disguise? -
By: fachur from Northern Virginia
I'm certainly not complaining, but I am fairly sure that this Rio Mitre is the same jacket as the Bandera. In any case, this is a great jacket, very well made, nice styling and very versatile. My only issue is that it is quite heavy, but not to the point of being a problem.

Great quality and value, however for a long sized jacket the tail on this coat is just a little short for the style. It would also be nice to have 3 buttons as well.

Super Coat; Super Price -
By: Mowog from Scotch Plains NJ
Well made, fits perfectly with sweater or just a shirt, warm, functional with all the pockets. The style makes this a very versatile coat. What more can I say. This was a super deal on a great coat. Way to go Orvis!
Really great jacket! -
By: Orpheus from Long Island, NY
I bought this coat partly because it was on sale, partly from other customer reviews. It turned out to be as good as I might have hoped for...roomy, relatively light weight (compared to wool,) warm, lots of useful pockets. Color is light but very attractive. Yes, it could use a third button, but will work well for me without...good room in the shoulders, doesn't bind with a sweater underneath, but keeps its size with just a shirt...at this price, get it! What more do you want?
Nice Jacket, A Few Flaws -
By: Paulg from Silver City, New Mexico
Like the heavy leather exterior and the many useful interior pockets. Coat is well made, with good construction and quality. Flaws include neck-strap that is either too tight or too loose, neck button dangles and has no smaller interior button to provide support (as do bottom two buttons), and jacket has no button mid-chest to hold it closed when using the bottom two buttons and neck button. Good for sport jacket use, but not useful when wind blows and you want to button-up.
Love it!! -
By: Doglover6365 from Irwin, PA
I bought this jacket for my husband for Christmas. I let him try it on to make sure I didn't need to return it and it fit like a glove. The quality is superb, like all Orvis products. I got it on sale so the price was great as well. I can't wait until he can wear it!
Pretty good but -
Overall a good jacket but I must say it needs two other features to make it a great jacket. 1. a third button, this is not a 2 button jacket another button would make this jacket close better on colder days. 2. lining at the bottom third of the jacket. The unlined portion leaves pilling from the inside of the jacket onto your pants. Not very nice when removing your jacket. On another note; slightly disappointed not sure if I was responsible because I did not inspect the jacket meticulously found a stain in the back of jacket. Lesson, check out the merchandize!
The jacket fits very well and is superb quality leather. The colour is a little different than the advertised photograph. The actual weight is slightly heavier than a good Harris Tweed jacket. Very comfortable. Buying the jacket on Sale was a bonus.

Soft leather, heavy, wind resistance and will wear forever.
