The coat itself is made of waxed cotton canvas. It is heavy, but not so heavy that it feels stiff. Honestly I’ve owned jackets made of heavier stuff, but they cost way way more. Mine had no odor of mineral spirits or oils.
The liner seems fairly warm, and I have room for layers.
Zipper is sturdy, buttons are good especially the riding flap on the back. The leather collar is nice and large and can be flipped up to keep the wind off my neck. Pockets are in good location.
Style is pretty much western. I don’t think it would be out of place anywhere, but definitely western. The Bronze is a dark brown that I’m sure will change with age. Looks great in my opinion.
Most importantly is warmth. I don’t think it is quite as warm as my Carhartt arctic extremes jacket, but is more waterproof and feature rich.
Think I might have to get the black one too.
I've had it for about 6 weeks now and I can say the odor is almost entirely gone. It will probably be completely gone in another few weeks, but it's not objectionable now. 2 weeks or even 4 weeks is not long enough to air it out to dissipate the odor... at least not in the winter. Since so many people object to the odor, I don't know why the manufacturer doesn't air them out before packaging and shipping. It's a shame, because the jacket is probably the best one I've ever owned. But I wouldn't call it a jacket, it's more like a coat. It's heavy (which doesn't bother me) and very warm. I've worn it in zero degree weather and was not cold at all. But if it's 40 degrees and sunny you have to open the front or else it gets too hot. It's not for mild weather.
The top closes well around the neck, and with the collar up and a bomber hat on, it's almost like having a full hood. However, I also ordered the hood from this company which is made for their dusters. Outback doesn't say the hood also goes with the Pathfinder, but I contacted them and they said it can be attached if a tailor or cleaner inserts snaps into the collar. Why they don't sell it with pre-installed snaps and promote it as having an optional hood, I don't know. It's a marketing error as far as I'm concerned. I took it to a cobbler who attached the hood, and now I love this coat even more. The hood is light and almost unnoticeable, but when up it works great to keep out wind, rain or snow. The hood's storm flap works well, and there's a small visor built into the hood which is also a nice feature. And it fits around a winter hat, so you can keep your head and ears warm and well as dry and out of the wind.
I also had the cobbler sew in a new zipper. The zipper it comes with is not adequate. At least mine wasn't. No matter how I tried to zip it up, it would take a number of attempts before I could get it to work. A double zipper is a great feature, and along with the side snaps it makes driving with this coat comfortable. But they should spend a few dollars more and put in a full metal zipper instead of zipper with metal teeth in a plastic base. The cobbler put in a brass YKK #10 zipper, which is a bit large but works and looks great. It did add to the cost of the coat, though. To me, it was worth it rather than returning the coat or getting an exchange, which might have the same zipper problem.
The cobbler was so impressed with this coat that he spent many minutes with me talking about it and examining it. He used to be a policeman and was impressed with the concealed carry pocket, but also with the overall quality and design. He said he was going to get one for himself.
If I was thin, I would wear a large coat or shirt, but since I'm a bit overweight in the abdomen I usually get extra large so it's not too tight. Based on reviews that say the size runs large, I got this coat in a large and it fits perfectly. It's not too tight or too loose, it doesn't bind anywhere, the sleeves are just the right length... perfect. I'm 5'10, weight 180 lbs., 38 waist, 30" sleeve... if that helps anyone.
This coat sheds water completely, is warm, and is tough. I wear it when walking the dogs, feeding hay to horses, carrying firewood, and doing other chores of country living, as well as when driving to town, shopping and going to work. It looks great, better than the pictures. Other people like the way it looks, also. With this coat you can have a sophisticated town coat, rain coat and work coat, all in one. If you don't like the smell, hang it up somewhere with air circulation, and wait a couple of months.
