Jacket material and construction is just fine for Ireland's blustery spring and fall days. The problem with it is poor design and proportions. I'm 6' tall and regularly wear XL shirts and jackets very comfortably. This jacket fits fine in the shoulders, chest and arms -- but is 4" too long in overall length. I have other Land's End jackets and shirts that fit just right in XL. Unfortunately, not this one. The company needs to go back to its Chinese supplier and adjust its pattern to conform to standard sizing for its customers. I'm going to keep it -- but only because I got it on sale. Disappointed.
