This versatile jacket, inspired by a 1958 uniform issued to the French Foreign Legion, performs equally well on the street or in the field and has been designed for optimum comfort and convenience. Multiple pockets keep every necessity securely stored and within easy reach. Four front bellows pockets have hook-and-loop flap closures on the outside for safe transport of contents, even when the pockets are overstuffed, and on the inside to keep flaps out of the way when not needed. Interior elastic webbing keeps your gear secure. Additionally, there is a vertical zippered security chest pocket on each side. The left sleeve holds a zippered pocket and penholder. Four internal pockets feature elastic loops. All of this is engineered from garment-washed all-cotton twill fabric that's been treated with DuPont™ Teflon® Fabric Protector for a breathable, durable finish that repels both water- and oil-based stains. Underarm vents, cordlock drawstring bottom, and adjustable elastic cuffs all enhance comfort. Machine wash.

Far exceeded expectations.

When I first saw this jacket I thought it looked amazing and practical. When I saw the price tag I cringed. I had never owned anything made by Woolrich before. The more I looked at it, the more I liked it's design, it looks tough but doesn't fit the strictly BDU look.
After it arrived I was surprised the jacket didn't cost more. The jacket allows for complete mobility and is fairly lightweight. I would recommend this to anyone. Just note that this jacket works best with layers if you are looking for warmth, it works very well on warm days when you wish to conceal carry.
With a few changes it would be a five.

I understand the half zipper, but a full length double zipper would make it a much better item. It handles a J frame very well, but that it about it. Needs a larger lower inside pocket and the inside upper pocket is placed too high.
The jacket is well made, true to size and comfortable, with the exception of the collar.
This is warm weather jacket only.
And, it looks pretty good.
This Jacket Rocks!

Okay, Here's the straight skinny on this jacket, that I purchased in spite of the bad reviews. Yes, the velcro could be better, it's kinda weak, but not bad, probably will replace it... cheap fix. The jacket runs a little large unless you plan on wearing something under it, like say a sweater when it's pretty cold or maybe a ballistic vest if your situation requires it. Don't misunderstand it's not a tent or anything like that, it is a really good looking jacket. The jacket has pockets everywhere, four inside with loops for mags, one in sleeve, four visible outside in front and two hidden breast zipper pockets that are just right for carrying something the size of a ppk, makarov, just about any smallish auto without printing. My FNP-9 is just a bit big but anything smaller...no problem. If you buy the correct size the jacket is plenty long to cover what you have on your hip. The sleeves are a little longer than most, but the cuffs are adjustable, don't see a problem there but I guess some folks do. My jacket is black and it is really really black, seems like it is dyed darker than usual which is nice. This is a light weight jacket, I start wearing mine around the time that I would put on a heavy sweat shirt, say around 45F to 50F. Plenty warm down to around freezing with just normal shirt underneath. Would I recommend this jacket to a friend? You bet, already have.
hmmmmm very odd

Just got this. The fit is .... odd. The sleeves are abnormally long but even worse the length is very short. I'm used to a field jacket cover my bottom. This will barely cover a weapon and not if I stretch or move the wrong way. Rain, snow, bad weather, this isn't a jacket for the field. It barely covers your torso.
It's also kinda tight. There's no way I could layer under this and that's important for this northern boy. I even order my jackets a size larger just to ENSURE I can layer under them but this is still too tight.
