A good looking rugged yet stylish coat is hard to find. If they are stylish, then they often lack warmth or durability. A high quality midweight jacket or coat is a prize to be treasured. I found mine at LL Bean, outdoor clothing specialists since 1912. It has morphed into a 1.5 billion dollar company located in Freeport Maine.
When I spotted this Legacy riding coat, I was impressed by the detailing. From its quilted moleskin outer shell, and ultrasuede collar and cuffs, including a shoulder "gun" patch, it is a handsome piece of clothing. The inner lining is plaid wool flannel over a layer of Gore-tex for warmth without weight. It is specially treated to waterproof the shell, and offers two inside pockets, plus 4 outer pockets to carry all your needed items.
LL Bean offers this coat in British Khaki, Coal and Mountain Pine. It is on sale for an unbelievable $99.00, until they run out. Since they offer a 100% guarantee on everything they sell, you can't go wrong with this sturdy attractive coat. They also offer this as a jacket for $89.00. If you love the outdoors and need a good midweight durable coat give this Legacy Riding Coat or the jacket a try. It will quickly become the most grabbed item in your wardrobe for those blustery Fall days.
