I bought this jacket without trying it on. I know that Backcountry has a great return policy so I went for it... and am glad I did.
I have been looking for a canvas style jacket for a while, but haven't been too impressed. It seems that there's always some funky pocket, lame elastic waist band, a bad color or weird collar, or something I didn't like about everything I saw.
This jacket is the answer to my quest for a cool canvas style jacket. It is equally useful for sitting around the campfire, to a casual night out in the city. VERY comfortable and stylish. I got the brown. There was a fellow on this site that complained about the brightness of the stitching, but I don't see any problems with it. In fact, it only adds to the coolness of the jacket.
Note: i am a fairly slim guy, 5"10" around 170. I got size large and it fits perfectly. However, if you are a bit larger in the mid section, this jacket may be tight.
Overall: very cool jacket... fit's great, you'll get compliments wearing it, nice fabric and workmanship, by far my favorite casual jacket. you can't go wrong with this piece.
