Here in northern Virginia the winters can get pretty cold. I was looking for a coat to provide the comfort and warmth needed during these cold winter days from anything to going to the store, the office or to go hunting. The Yukon looks is perfect for all those things. I am 61, and weigh 185 pounds and the large fits pretty close to perfect. The coat is roomy enough so that I can layer it with a sweater or fleece, and the drawstring waist helps keep the wind out. The 24-oz. wool is a really nice weight, and I like it that the material is softer and not as stiff as some other wool jackets I have had in the past.

I like this jacket very much: It fits very well. It has a modest and functional design. It also keeps me warm with 2 cotton layers beneath on my minnesota winter night saunters. I am 5' 11" and 155 pounds and the small fits me perfectly. It is not too tight nor too loose around my chest. The jacket extends below my waist, which I like very much. With my arm extended the end of the jacket sleeves rests just before my wrist. The front pockets are large enough to carry an average sized paperback book without any inconvenience. The hand warmer pockets are very nice. I especially like the zipper breast pocket. It is very easy to access, and I am comfortable storing my keys and so forth in it. After shoveling during a wet snowfall a few weeks ago, I was still dry and warm. I was impressed.

I have finally found a wool jacket that sits below the waist, allows me to have full range of motion in my arms without the jacket creeping up on me and being too tight in the chest. I'm 6 ft and 200 lbs. The quality of this jacket is evident in the stitching and perfectly lined up seams. It is well thought out and is quickly becoming my favorite jacket. I also like the snaps on the pockets instead of buttons. I definitely recommend this jacket!

Nice and warm
I was pleasantly surprised by how warm this jacket was in the cold weather. Nice and comfortable. Can wear to work or going out. Very versatile. Thank you Filson.

Very nice coat
Filson makes a very good coat. It technically runs true to size, however if you are wearing heavy clothes underneath like a sweatshirt, its a little tight. Also, while this coat is warm, it won't handle the weather by itself. However, the coat is very nice looking, and the pockets are great. I expect to have this coat for a while.
