The Story

Detail-rich, foul-weather-ready, ultra-comfortable, and great-looking—our River Road Jacket is purpose-built, designed, and constructed for decades of use. Borrowing design cues from early 20th century field wear, the River Road reflects our passion for jackets without parallel. Halley Stevensons' Scottish waxed cotton comprises the jacket's shell, keeping rain and wind at bay, but with a slight twist. The new welterweight Hybrid Aero wax fabric (built from premium long-staple cotton for density, durability, and supreme hand feel looks and performs like a traditional waxed finish, without the unwanted residue. The plaid cotton twill lining ensures comfort and warmth, as does the brushed twill at the hand pockets. Corduroy is employed for additional durability at the collar and cuffs. Equipped with a snap storm flap, protecting a solid brass zipper with leather pull. Two generously sized exterior bellows waist pockets are complemented by side-entry pockets, handwarmer pockets, and a zip welt pocket at the chest. Inside are two corduroy patch pockets with corozo nut buttons. Reinforced shoulder patches and double-needle stitching throughout.

Pure cotton. Hand wash. Imported.

Sizes M(38-40), L(42-44), XL(46-48), XXL(50-52).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from got it right This is a great jacket. It has the right kinds of pockets, in the right places, unlike LLBean, Carhartt and the others, which have some but not others and not always in the right places. You can turn the cord cuffs up to look cool and you can turn them down when it turns too cool. Done up it is completely windproof and, with a layer or two, it is very warm. 40 inch chest, I went for the Large and it's perfect. The zip on mine is fine in both directions. A cord or drawstring on the bottom hem might help with the overall line and the updrafts but I can’t think of anything else that would improve this coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coat First of all I'm a coat guy. I love different styles and really fell in love with the River Road Coat. I went through several Orvis coats before I settled on this one, couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Looking, Great Fitting Jacket I recently purchased the River Road Jacket and am extremely pleased with the fit and looks. I live just outside of St. Louis and wanted a jacket that would stand up to the wide range of cool to cold weather for the Fall thru Spring, I am just over 6'1" tall and 205 lbs. Recently we had temps below 20 deg. and I paired the jacket with the Orvis RT Quilted vest. Worked great. Depending on the temperature you can wear by itself or pair with a sweater and or the vest. Thanks Orvis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Water runs right off! I really like the weight for the moderate temperatures we have in Virginia. If someone is cparing with Heritage Field jacket there is none. Different animal altogether. Cheked water ristanxe by running under facet. Not a drop left behind, completely ran off.
