It’s 9 p.m. in Charbonneau, North Dakota and a snow storm has formed from the Rockies bringing wind and stinging snow to your 2000 acre farm. Your ranch hand Jake comes in from the squall to tell you that the herd of prized highland cattle has punched through the southeastern paddock and are running wild. Temps are dropping and the snow intensifying as you grab your Great Plains Field coat and head for the stables to saddle your Apaloosa Gelding and head out to round up the prized cattle. The Great Plains Field Coat craves winter; it eats if for breakfast. Made with tough weather-proof waxed cotton, it boasts a robust quilted prima-loft insulation under a sturdy Herringbone flannel interior. Sleeves are lined with prima-loft insulation and smooth taffeta for easy on and off. The front offers 2 patched pockets with side entry warming pockets, a vertical chest pocket for quick access, a two way zipper runs the opening and a high stand up collar with soft flannel for warmth. Articulated shoulder hinges make it easy to move your arms. Your cattle have safely been herded back to the paddock and the hole in the fence has been mended. All is right in the world. You de-frock your steed, thank him for his services and head back to the main house for a fine single malt. Your Great Plains Field Coat gets another notch in the hard oak mantle for a job well done. It’s dry, you’re dry. Now that is a nice ending.
This is a fantastic winter coat tough as nails and wears well plenty of pockets thoughtfully placed well stitched and reinforced its built to handle serious weather and comfortable to wear.

I Love this coat Lightweight warm easy-on-easy-off. Cuts the wind cold. Only thing missing is an interior pocket.

This is a very comfortable jacket. I was concerned that it might not be warm enough but I was wrong. Looks good on. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that the sleeves feel a little narrow. But this might change the more I wear it.
