I'm in love with Patagonia's hemp canvas workwear jackets
The Barn Coat's form and function come together very well as a lightweight, but very layer-able, all purpose jacket. I simply love the comfort and durability of the hemp blend canvas, that if I need to, is washable. I likewise have the Rancher jacket(s) in addition to these Barn Coats. I am seriously considering purchasing the Vests and Hoode... Read Mored Jackets in this canvas, it is that good. Although, if a may here advocate to Patagonia that the hooded jacket in this canvas has very much a Bomber overtone. And so, I would likewise welcome other silhouettes of jackets in this canvas, especially a full on strict Bomber (no hood). And keep going, from a some sort of Moto to even say try an Overcoat. I know, we are talking workwear here, but again it is so durable and comfortable, keep going. The current colors are great. Maybe through in a dark brown too? Thanks for reading.
The Best Hemp Jacket
To date this is the best hemp blend material I have come across for a jacket. And the overall design functionality is superb. It is a close tie with the likewise rancher jacket Patagonia has. While this does not look as good, it looks well enough and is roomier. In any case, you con't go wrong with either and if you want more room for the slee... Read Moreves, cuffs, and torso, go with this barn coat. While not cold-coldest weather capable, it does pack plenty of heat for it light weight which can be augmented with plenty of layers. At my body specs a Small is on the order of 23.25" - 23.50" chest, which gives room for a thick warm pullover hoodie. It is the kind of coat that makes you wish you had a barn, or at least worked at a place that has a barn. Both colors have a nice neutral hue and it is very soft but tuff comfortable fit-feel.
The best work jacket
I have worn this work jacket for 4 seasons now. Its warm and durable with a relaxed fit that is roomy enough to layer under if necessary. It washes up great and beyond its durable hemp material it is soft and cozy. I will say the sizing is very roomy in the body while being smaller in the shoulders and shorter in the arms.

An Excellent Purchase
Honestly, this is one of the best coats I've ever owned. It's extremely well made; the materials are topnotch; and it's warmer than I expected it to be (a pleasant surprise). My intention was to wear the coat while working in the garage or in the backyard, but I've taken to wearing it whenever I go out (errands, dinner, whatever... Read More). Highly recommended.
My favorite coat!!
On the suggestion from reviews I watched on this coat, I order down a size. Turns out, it was too small so for me, their coats are true to size. Exchange was totally hassle free.

Best coat ever. I love it so much I bought another one 3 years later in a dark ash instead of brown. You absolutely want to size down with this coat unless you do plan to layer heavily with it.

I’ll also add that it’s warmer than I expected.

The only downside I can think of is that due to the bottom of the coat being so wide and baggy it does let wind in making you feel colder on those already cold and windy winter days unless you later the right way.

Great Work Jacket

A great coat
I do t be have all that much to say other than I love this coat. Its super warm, comfortable and I dont look like a puffball. Its got a classic look and feel. All the pockets are great as well. I think I might have all workwear jackets/coats now. I sure wish I was on their pro care program again. Id even have more .
warm and comfortable
this is an insulated coat, so has some extra R factor to it... this will be great for colder climates and as winter barn coat. fit is a bit roomy i could have gone down a size for a closer fit, but chose to keep the room for bulkier layers. quality is great.... expecting this to last for many years.

Nice jacket but short sleeves
I'm a somewhat burly 6'0" man with wide shoulders and slightly long arms. The body of this jacket in size L was perfect for my torso, but the sleeves are laughably short. Going up a size will give me an extra inch on sleeves but increases size everywhere else too much. So I'm stuck with a jacket that doesn't quite fit. Bumm... Read Moreer :( This is unlike Patagonia's other hemp coat they call a "chore coat". In Large, the chore coat fits and looks great and the sleeves are just perfect. Despite being similar--like a non-insulated version of the barn coat--the chore coat is designed to extend the length of the shoulders if need be. You can see special folds and seams on the shoulder blades for this. The barn coat lacks these, making for a very stiff shoulder that pulls the cuffs up the arm. With these relief folds, the Barn Coat would be perfect. Patagonia, update this barn coat with some more shoulder space. I'm gonna see if I can modify this coat or just live with it, or give it to someone else. Also, make the barn coat available in ink black like the chore coat. It's a beautiful and attractive color.
Very durable, warm, so many pockets
Work a farm in MA. Wear this coat in the shoulder season and winter. Can carry all my tools in this thing, they just disappear into the pockets.

A nice insulated coat
I bought this for casual wear more than outside work. Although I believe it would hold up just as well as some of the other iron forge hemp clothing I have, I want to keep one in nice condition.

Read Morep buttons seem to be intentionally picked to be as nice as possible, which helps the price point of this jacket seem justified. The details were definitely thought out. The only thing I wish Patagonia offered was a button closure like their chore coat for those who prefer not to use zippers.
Nice coat, tight fit
I like the coat and the material. I wish it was more roomy in the shoulders. There is not a lot of room for layering. The arms are slender and not as roomy as I would want in a work coat. A large double zipper would be an improvement over the small single zipper. You need to zipper up without gloves and the zipper tab is tiny.
Hi Robert, thank you for sharing this feedback on this coat. Our product designers do read these messages, so your thoughts will be seen!
Broken In like it was 10 years old brand new!
Soft, loose, great for layers and the Adirondacks. This is a work issued jacket and keeps me warm and will be a go to during off hours as the full pocket on the back is great for stuffing whatever you don't want to hold. My first hemp garment and love it. I wish the website was a bit easier to locate the jacket though. Not intuitive for me.
Was looking for a work jacket alternative to your typical Carhartt and this fit the bill. The hemp canvas is super soft right out of the package, yet seems every bit as durable as duck canvas.

Heavy, but not bulky and really warm
I was expecting a well made heavier coat based on my other Patagonia Hemp purchases. I was not disappointed.

The functionality is great and it looks great too. Im so glad the jacket works as good as it looks. Hoping to have it for a long time and I am very happy with my first Patagonia experience.
Solidly built work jacket!
I bought this jacket to use strictly as a work jacket. I received it today and after seeing it in person it seems a bit crazy to use it as a work jacket but that’s what it was designed for. I’m 5’11” and 160lbs with an athletic build and ordered the medium. It fits me exactly how I would expect for a work jacket and every other jacket I own are a... Read Morelso medium. I wore it today for the first time with a light sweater and it fits great. I’m glad I didn’t get persuaded by the many reviews recommended to downsize. I tried the jacket on with only a t-shirt, a t-shirt with a mid weight sweater and also my a t-shirt paired with a mid weight hoodie and it fit great with all those combinations. As a work jacket, I absolutely love the fact that it doesn’t feel or look oversized wearing only a t-shirt and yet I can layer easily as the jacket has lots of space. I work outdoors in all weather conditions as I’m in HVAC and it’s absolutely essential for me to layer. Before this jacket I just wore my old winter jacket with a t-shirt daily as it’s extremely warm and when experiencing huge swings in the temperature -15 today then -1 tomorrow I would often overheat while working on many days. With this jacket, I’ll be able to leave home with my layers and make adjustments as I go through the work day. I’m a bit of a jacket and hoodie collector so I have quite a large collection. This is by far the heaviest jacket I’ve ever owned but as I’m only 160lbs I actually prefer heavier jackets. The two front pockets are also massive which is perfect for me when working, I can put lots of stuff in there and leave them unbuttoned for quick access when working. This is my first Patagonia jacket and will experience it’s first day out in the field working tomorrow so now I’ll see how well it stands up overtime.
Excellent fit / workmanship!
I'm 5'10, 170 pounds, broad shoulders and stuck right between sizes M and L on Patagonia clothing. In general, Medium is almost a very close fit and Large being a very loose fit for me.

I bought this jacket for my husband who works exclusively outside and needed a warm, durable jacket for those harsh winter days in the Appalachian mountains. It fits like a glove. He really enjoys and uses all of the pockets! It's warm, hefty, and in two months of hard use it still looks like new! Highly recommend!
Im 6, 215 and the size L is perfect. Ive worn other brands of work coats prior to this one , and theres no comparison. The Barn Coat is by far the best Ive worn for a cold weather work coat. There is no break in period, no stiffness at all and the abrasion resistance is for real. I live in the App. Mtns if E. Tn and SW. Va and have experienced no p... Read Moreroblems after wearing for nearly 3 months. I own/operate a cattle farm, hay operation and raise pastured pork. Ive built fence, corrals, fed animals, worn to work, out to town, built fence and so on. I wear this coat daily and have yet to have an issue. Its tough, comfortable and warm. The slimmer sleeves are perfect to keep loose materials out of your way, esp when working. The tapered fit eliminates the need for a draw cord style lower hem. It is not extremely cold where I work, but is regularly into the low 20s/high teens F here and Ive had no issues, even with layering. You can move freely with this item on and have no real worries of getting snagged by things due to too much loose fitting material. All pockets are well designed and thought out and are very useful for daily chores. The collar is soft yet rigid enough to stand in wind and cold. Ive not dealt much with rain/snow, so I cannot speak to that but the coat isnt advertised as waterproof or resistant. Overall, this may be the best work coat Ive owned for the money and durability to date. I would normally wear an XL and returned an XL for a L. Size down and this coat is perfect!
Sleeves a bit tight
I'm 6'1", weigh 175, with 32" waist. M fits okay, but sleeves are tighter than I'd like. To be fair, I am fairly muscly and have long arms, but I feel like most people who do manual labor are going to fit in that category, and a workwear jacket should be built to accommodate that. Otherwise the fit is perfect, but the restr... Read Moreiction in the sleeves is a huge drawback. Thought about sizing up to the L, but already returned M and L size of the ranch jacket bc M was even tighter than the barn coat, and L swallowed me whole (felt like jumping up 3 sizes instead of just 1).

This is the only review I have ever submitted online for a piece of clothing, I felt like I needed to share.. I'm 5'11 240lb and this jacket fits me great.

Read Morein the woods most of the time and the large pockets allow me to carry everything I need and still be hands free to work. You cannot feel any wind coming through the jacket, it is built heavy and the exterior is very tough. The jacket is more expensive than what I'm used to working in but you get what you pay for. I plan to buy another as a spare incase they stop making them like this. I bought the dark ash green color because where I live you do not wear clothing that resembles the color of a deer if your working in the woods during the cold months. I would like to see a dark gray or dark brown color added to the selection.
Exceeded high expectations
Based on the description and other reviews I was expecting this coat to be great, and indeed it is. Feels very heavy and durable while still being soft and flexible. Its not rigid like some other name brand canvas coats when new. Im looking forward to seeing how it wears over time. Im 510, a stocky 210lbs, and a medium is a perfect relaxed fit.
Heavy duty and versatile
I have had this jacket just for a month but have already gotten a ton of wear out of it. We are having a fairly cold fall here in the Northern Neck of VA. We are on the water just off the Chesapeake.

Also for walks with the grandkids, sitting around the fire outside and generally just hanging out. The jacket is super warm and rugged. No snags in heavy brush.

Love all of the pockets, especially the big back one wear I store my gloves so I can use the front ones to store other stuff. Hand warmer pockets are also a great addition. Thanks as always for the care you all take in design and production. I know I will wear this one for years.
Solid barn coat
I like the hemp fabric, and the look of this jacket. Quality build. Pockets are great. The fit is good for me. Improvements: Sleeves are a little short. Snap cuff are nice but should be a little wider. Maybe a little more cut in the shoulders. More room at the top of the chest. That said, I still find this jacket to be really comfortable and warmer... Read More than I expected. Much more of a jacket than other thin barn coats. Patagonia never disappoints.
Almost, but not quite
The jacket has nice aspects. Sizing: The sizing is good, but it is also quite obscure. Let me be more clear. This jacket can fit in many different ways for many different people (body size), this is a positive aspect in many ways as well. However, I believe it is a bit too obscure to the point where the buyer will never know exactly how this will... Read More fit unless unless try it on. The return process of course makes that not so much of an issue. But still. The sizing is not as straightforward as one might be used to. Materials: The canvas on this jacket feels very tough. And it is. The pockets are all ergonomically placed. The buttons are the best part. Which brings me to the zipper. I believe this zipper not only hinders the design, but it goes against Patagonia's environmental philosophies. This jacket is a work jacket, it is meant to be strong, and last, and be functional. It is almost all of those things. This zipper, if replaced with buttons would extend the life of this jacket. Zippers are prone to breakage and don't hold nearly as strong as a solid button configuration, possibly buttons made of recycled horseshoes. This is a good barn coat, but I think being open to practical and artistic improvements is what the people need.
Perfectly designed - beautifully built
I bought this 2nd hand after discovering Patagonias work wear range.

Great coat if it's what you're looking for
This coat was kind of a pain to buy, but I'm really happy to have it. First of all, the colors are tough to judge online, which I guess is hard to avoid. I went into the store rather than buy both and return one. The fit is also a little unusual. For me (5'9", ~135 lbs.), the arms in a size S fit just fine, layered or not, but the mi... Read Moredsection is kind of loose. That works for what I was looking for (I can work in it, wear it around town, and probably even sleep in it), but the fit on me doesn't seem to line up with what some other reviewers have said. Probably best to try it on first if you can. The coat I ended up buying in-store was great until I noticed the stitching had come undone in the left hand pocket. That surprised me in a burly coat like this, but I like it enough to go exchange it for a new one. The coat will be good for chilly spring days over a light shirt, or I can layer a hoodie or puffy jacket underneath just fine. The material is soft and seems durable, and most reviews online say it's held up well. One thing I'm still curious about is whether the material can be waxed to provide a bit more rain protection.
Great coat, but fit could be improved
I like this coat. That's why I bought it. It's tough, and it should last for a long time. Patagonia is going to repair it if it gets damaged. It's warm. The pockets are good, and I love having the back pocket for maps. The collar goes to my ears, and offers good protection. The zipper is of seemingly good quality, and functions smoot... Read Morehly. The cuffs are nice and adjustable, and easy to pull back to about mid forearm. The outside fabric is soft. Aesthetically, it looks good. The colour (coriander brown) is pleasing. The texture looks great, too. The only thing that could be better for me? The fit. I had the hardest time deciding on the size. I still don't know whether it is kinda small or kinda large. The small size was better in terms of how low the bottom of the coat went, but the arms were too short and the shoulders too tight. The medium offered better shoulder and arm mobility, but still not quite enough, while making the waist a bit bulky and a tad too low, just at the limit of what I feel like is still acceptable. Rather than drastically changing the sizing and cut of the coat, I think that adding pleats behind the shoulders and at the elbows would make the fit a heck of a lot better. The Ranch has shoulder pleats. This one should, too. And either making the sleeves a tad bigger, or adding elbow pleats, would help a ton in improving how one can move their arms around. With the pleats, it would still look nice on people with narrower shoulders, while allowing extra room for those with wider shoulders. I think. For reference, I'm 5'5"/165 lbs. Chest is 44", waist 30". And I'm still confused about the sizing. Some of it is too small. Some of it is too large.
I've received so many compliments on this coat! It keeps me warm with just a t-shirt down to about 35 degrees. Very comfortable and heavy. Like the other reviewers have said, it runs large.

Bought for my wife
My wife wanted my coat! I own the same one in large size. Im 73in 220lb. Its the perfect work coat for the farm. I run a poultry farm. The coat runs large so its great as a shell in the winter over a thick sweatshirt or some other Patagonia sweater product. This coat is all about the pockets!

(Doubles as lumbar support when Im in the truck) My iPhone is in my right front pocket, and my flashlight, reading glasses, pen, notepad in left breast pocket. I throw in some hand lotion and a tape measure and Im ready to work. The coat now weighs twice as much. Two suggestions 1) more snaps evenly space on the main zipper cover, sometimes u just need to snap the coat in a pinch. 2) the coat is long and a parka zipper may make crouching down easier. I got my wife the small and it fits her like it fits me on the large side room for a sweater. She is normally a womans medium. I love your clothes namely your cold weather gear.
Super quality and looks
I believe I will be wearing this coat for many years. The coat is very warm and the quality is typical Patagonia. I usually buy a large but after reading the reviews I purchased a medium and it fits perfect. Have only worn it a couple times and have been complemented each time.

I bought this coat for working around my cabin in the forest. The length and fit are perfect for me. (Im 57-58 tall and about 145lbs) Also the loft is perfect as well.

One minor nit: The front zipper is functional but it feels a bit lightweight for the coat.

If you are going to buy one jacket just for general winter use, this is it. Ive had it for 4 years, and it looks as if I bought it yesterday.

I was going to use this for riding horses and associated work. There was inadequate movement in the shoulders. I had to return the jacket because there was no ease built in the shoulders.

Im a relatively active 69 year old male. Im 58, 185 pounds. 45 chest, 20 shoulders, 34 waist. 33 sleeve, 17 neck. Usually, a size large in Patagonia coats fits me very well. First off, I dont farm, ranch, or work outdoors. I just enjoy the comfort and style of a barn coat in casual settings. I have owned a couple prior to the purchase of the Pata... Read Moregonia and, for me, once theyre broken in, they simply cant be beat. I have similar hopes for the Patagonia. I purchased the Patagonia Iron Forge Hemp Canvas Barn Coat in December 2019. I waited several months before offering my views on this coat because I wanted to ensure that my impressions would be consistent over time. Because my shoulders, chest, and neck traditionally have been the critical areas of fit, I tried on both a large and a medium at the Denver Patagonia store. The large was a very comfortable (almost ideal) fit in the shoulders and chest. However, the balance of the torso was blousy; it wasnt bad, but it wasnt a fit that I was accustomed to. The medium, on the other hand, had a more of a fit that I preferred in the lower torso, yet the shoulders and chest were close to being tight. The range-of-motion in the shoulders was not restrictive, but close to it. The closest I come to layering under any coat is a flannel shirt over a t-shirt. So I felt the medium would be an acceptable fit. I ended up ordering a medium from Patagonia to get the color that I wanted (coriander brown). That said, for folks with measurements similar to mine but prefer to layer, the medium probably would not work very well. Admittedly, this past year I have been second-guessing myself as to whether I should have purchased the large. I havent had the need to layer. And I havent had any circumstances or physical activity where my shoulders felt constrained. Its just that Ive missed the comfortable drape of a size large on my shoulders. And Im sure that I would have acclimated to the larges relaxed torso shape as well. Nonetheless, the medium is serving its purpose quite well. But enough about fit. I truly enjoy the hemp construction. It was comfortable right out of the box. And as it continues to break in, it is becoming even more comfortable. Maybe I am naturally warm-natured so quite possibly this next statement may not be true for all folks, but I find this coat comfortably warm for Colorado winters. With gloves and a hat, I find no need for layering or the need for a heavier coat. I find it very effective at wind blocking. The construction is first rate; I havent seen any flaws. And it seems to be quite durable, although Ive not found the need to crawl through any barbed-wire fences lately. With my perception of the quality of the material and components, I feel this coat offers a very good price to performance ratio especially when I consider this coat to last a good number of years. All in all, Im very satisfied with this purchase.
Way to large around the midsection. Im always a large in Patagonia but this item swallowed me. Had to return it unfortunately.

I work in a warehouse refrigerator environment driving a forklift and the last coat I got was a Berne brand. It wore out in the sleeves fairly fast.

Rugged and warm
I got this to replace a much-loved denim chore coat that had lasted near 30 years. I suspect that this coat will outlast me; it's very tough. The pockets are roomy and easily usable even with gloves on. The cut is roomy enough for a bulky layer underneath, but it's warm enough that that would be needed only on very cold days (I just came ...

I'm 6'1" 185# and the medium fits well; I've got long arms (I usually need to buy a tall) and the sleeves are just long enough for me.
BEST COAT EVER
I will say that I am completely on board with Patagonia and have no problem paying the higher prices for it, being that it is an amazing product. I have NEVER written a review on anything, and this goes to show how much I really enjoy this jacket. It can be worn in literally any way, and I often wear it to school in the winter as I am walking aroun... Read Mored campus. Its big enough to layer underneath it, and when you do it keeps you extremely warm. Not only do I wear it in a casual setting, I often cut firewood in it as well. I am about 5'9 and weigh 165, and have ordered a medium and it fits me perfectly. It is just big enough I can stuff a sweatshirt, and my pat vest underneath it to keep me perfectly warm. I can't say enough about this jacket and it has been my favorite I have ever ordered.
Nice coat but only 2 snaps down front and no two way zipper? Big omissions in my book.

Excellent Barn Coat....Exactly what I have been looking for
I really like this jacket. It is well designed and the quality of materials and construction is excellent. The fabric is tough but relatively soft. As per other reviews, this is a roomy jacket and especially in the mid section. This is basically a Carhartt jacket that probably isn't as tough but with more style. I am 6'1, 225lbs with a 4...

Looking forward to layering this with a nice flannel or fleece. For the price I think this is an excellent value from Patagonia.
As comfortable as a well worn old friend from the very first wear. Not too stiff, surprisingly soft, but also tough. Just warm enough on its own for cool to moderately cold days while working, loose-fitting enough to layer with a nice warm sweater or flannel for those extra cold days.

Best jacket I own
Really amazing coat for the outdoors, It's very durable, warm but not windproof so you have to bundle and wear something warm and close to form because the wind blowing underneath can be chilling. Lots of pocket space all over. During the winter it can be warm as long as you layer properly. I use it for hiking, fishing and everyday casual. I w... Read Moreouldn't recommend it for backpacking because it is heavy and not very packable. Overall very happy with this thing.
It's a BARN coat
I honesty believe this coat deserves a better average rating than is shown. Is it big? Yes. But it is a barn coat and the Pat folks do not hide that in their description. Is it too big? Perhaps. But this depends on the person. For those seeking a sleek and more form-fitting garment, you best look elsewhere. For those seeking a garment that is roomy... Read More and suitable for layering and much outdoor work, this is the ticket. I purchased this coat to replace a similar insulated and reversible flannel coat from Patagonia that had finally gone thread-bare after about 15 years. When I first received that previous garment in Large size (my normal size purchase from Patagonia), I felt it too was a bit large initially. But I grew to appreciate the room it offered and dearly loved it in the end. This new barn coat has about the exact same room in the torso. I am about 175#, 5'11" and I purchased a Large. I am an average build. If I had gone to a Medium on this, I am pretty sure the sleeves would have been too short and possibly a bit restrictive. The feel of the coat fabric is very nice and pliable. I love the slickness of the inner lining as that makes it easy to slip on over sweaters and other similar fabrics. My only wish is that the front draft flap had a third snap in the along the center. I feel that just two snaps (one on the top and one on the bottom) do not offer enough of a secure closure. But this is just me being picky. Great coat! It will last for years, I am certain.
Sizing is weird.
I tried the large and its HUGE in the mid section. I am 5'10" and 185. I could fit an entire pillow inside this jacket. I then tried the medium and felt the mid section was fine however the arms were a bit tight especially if I wore a layer underneath. I wish they put the large arms on the medium body... then it would be correct.
Feels well made,Nice,thick and heavy.
I bought this to replace a my favorite coat that has been repaired a bunch of times. I think I've been wearing it so long,it's in fashion again.

Read Mores the shoulders are quite narrow. I can't imagine the shape of the person who fit this jacket perfectly. The mid section is far too large and bellows out a lot.

Awesome coat,but not perfect.
I love all the features of this jacket. Material and construction are all solid and the insulation is good,but you will need additional layers for colder temperatures. The variety of pockets is great,with the coolest being the pocket on the back. I found myself using that much more than I thought I would. I have no complaints about the zipper as it... Read More's larger than what's on most jackets. Sizing- I'm 5'11",180 and I decided on Large. I initially bought a Medium,but the arms were too small so I had to exchange. The fit is true to size for a relaxed fit item. It's big in the body and long,but it was purposely cut that way and still doesn't look bad even though it is large on me. I don't know how anyone comfortably sizes down in this jacket - when I layered under the Medium I could hardly move my arms. Even in Large the sleeves,at the elbow and shoulder,are still restrictive,which is disappointing. I wouldn't consider myself to be broad in the arms or shoulder either. However,the sleeve issue isn't enough for me to give up on this jacket. Still a solid buy if you're in the market for a cool weather work jacket.
Good comfortable coat for work or casual wear
This is a solid coat for moderately cold and dry weather. It's a lot softer than the usual cotton duck canvas. It's still pretty heavy but not as stiff.

I'm 6' 1" and weigh 180 lbs. I work outside on a farm. The size medium fits me. I like the all pockets and the material feels durable. It's easy to move in,but it's not warm at all.

Great Coat,but too big
I can tell this coat is really well made and will last,but it's way too big.
