The Story

Water-repellent and wind-resistant, the River Road Waxed Cotton Jacket is the one to wear when you're cheering on the sidelines, poking around at the farmers' market, walking the dog, or just enjoying yourself outdoors. Lined with our cozy and warm plaid, the soft and supple waxed cotton is from Halley Stevensons, one of the original Scottish makers of this rugged fabric. Layer it with a sweater, fleece, or other midlayer to adapt to changing temps. When a storm's really brewing, zip it up, snap the storm flap, and pull up the hood. Stormproof pockets and interior stash pockets will keep your cell phone, car keys, or wallet safe and dry. An internal drawstring waist helps seal out chilly drafts and defines your figure. And if you spill your coffee? Not a problem, this classic resists stains too for years of stylish protection.

Polyester/cotton lining in body. Nylon lining in sleeves. Hand wash. Imported.

Sizes XS(4), S(6-8), M(10-12), L(14-16), XL(18-20); about 29" long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite jacket This is a super cute very light jacket. I bought a large to be able to layer in the fall. For now I cinch the waist and it’s just right for spring. Normally I would buy a medium as I wear a size 10. This is water resistant because of the waxing and would be ok with a little rain but it’s not a raincoat. It has lots of pockets which are lined with super soft flannel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Jacket! My wife liked her River Road Waxed Cotton Jacket so much, I've bought her another one for her birthday. It's her go-to jacket and just about every time she puts it on she says it's the best jacket she's ever had! It layers great, repels water nicely, and looks terrific. The inside drawstrings make for a more tailored look and a flattering fit. It's the perfect jacket for a taking walk or shopping in town. Orvis is always great but the sale price made purchasing it a no-brainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect daily jacket Absolute Orvis quality and the perfect weight for spring or layering underneath. And soft as can be! Not stiff or hard like typically waxed fabric. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection I received the burgundy medium. I am 5'6" 138 pounds and fits great with enough room for a sweater to wear on extra chilly days. I love the weight as is for 80% of the time, not needing a heavier lining. It blocks most if the wind nicely. So exceptionally sewn and put together. Love the design and thankful for the front zipper

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket I was looking for a 2-3 season jacket to replace one that has a broken zipper. This jacket is far superior to the one it is replacing. It looks great, fits true to size, has a lightweight lining, a hood and is rain resistant. Perfect for cool fall and spring days and will be great for summer’s cooler evenings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this coat I absolutely love this coat!! Glad I did not wait to order it because my niece wanted one and I couldn't find any left. We still have snow here so I have been using this with alot of layers underneath. It's nice because it's windproof. Perfect to layer capilene with fleece underneath. Thank you orvis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Jacket I love this jacket so much I ended up buying 3 of them. I bought the Large olive green, and an Extea Large Olive green, because I wasn’t sure about the size. I’m 5’ 1” and 150 lbs. Both jackets fit me, but I can layer more under the extra large. Its such a beautiful jacket, I ordered a Navy in Large, and I am in heaven. These jackets are extremely well made, and they fit beautifully. I highly recommend them. And they arrived in 3 days; very speedy shipping.
