Yes and No -
I actually love the jacket, however, at the moment I don't recommend it. It is a waxed, red jacket and it cannot be cleaned in this country. If there were a re-wax facility here like Barbour has, I'd recommend it in a heartbeat. But being red (a gorgeous red), it will pick up grime like crazy and then what do you do? But until it gets too grimy, I'll wear it with pleasure. And it's a great weight and extremely handsome.
Exactly What I Was Looking For -

It fits perfectly and it arrived within a week and a half. It's the perfect jacket if you're looking for that kind of style in a lower price bracket than usual. I've used it on my motorcycle already and it kept me the perfect temperature. I wasn't too warm, but I wasn't too cold from the wind either.

The jacket quality was excellant but the jacket was too tight around the shoulders and arm pits . I tried both a large and extra large and had the same problem with both jackets. It reminded me of an Italian shirt that is tapered and manufactured for a smaller bodied person. I am 5'6" and weigh 180 pounds.
Poor Design / Cut By Maker -
This jacket was not properly sized . 'Cut way too small in the larger sizes . Very poor design !
A Btitish winner -
By: Article from Canada
A very classy but cool jacket. Unique style and design . Very British which is my ancestory and red is my favorite color . I know in my part of the world there won't be any one else likely wearing this jacket. but I will await spring before wearing it as right now we are in the grip of a cold Canadian winter.
Fit problem -
I bought this for my husband to replace a beloved Irish red waxed barn coat that he can now really only wear in the barn! The Orvis jacket seems like a nice piece but was not long enough or wide enough in the shoulder, even in XX Large. He usually takes an X large, so I suggest going up a size or two.
a surprise find. -

I have been looking for a riding jacket like this for sometime. A well made summer weight riding jacket. It's well waxed for protection from rain and longer sleeves to accomodate riding in a crouch as well as lots of pockets. All in all a well priced answer to my needs.
Excellent Value, Highly stylish yet practical -
By: Punchbuggy from San Francisco, CA
I fell in love with this jacket from just the catalog picture. It looks even better in person. Excellent value for dollar, I get the sense this will be my favorite piece of outerwear for years to come. Distinctly stylish yet practical, fits like a dream, distinctive color, cut, unique style. My girlfriend describes it as 'ruggedly practical yet with eye-catching flair and style'. Very happy with this purchase, the detail in the stitching, in the hatch-pattern elbows to the back... I am rarely this pleased with an online purchase, highly recommended for any man who wants to add some flair and pizzaz to their everyday wardrobe.
snappy jacket -
Loved the retro styling on this jacket. Quality construction and good fit. My only complaint is that the bottom pockets weren't the handwarmer style.
