Modern Military Jacket

Modern Military Jacket is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Great! I got a size larger because it was the only one left when it was on sale, so it was obvious that it'd be a bit big. But I love the clean design, the pockets, the longer length, the color, and the padding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb construction. Lovely rugged look. I've been looking for several years for the perfect replacement of a military-inspired jacket I bought in South Africa. This one is as close as I'll ever find and, in fact, sports far superior construction. I now have something to live in during Milwaukee's cool, damp Springs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Spring Jacket! I love this jacket! I recently discovered Madewell and this was one of my first purchases. The jacket is great quality and perfect for transitioning from my heavy winter coat as the weather warms up a little.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the cold! I bought this for the warmer winter days in NYC. Its a great jacket, well made and a great in between from casual to going somewhere nice. Looks great over turtlenecks or a scarf inside, the collar pops and looks awesome. So many pockets too! Four snap close pockets and the lower pockets have an inner side pocket to put your hands into.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like I’ve had it for years So happy I grabbed this on sale. It’s the perfect weight/length for colder spring/fall days, feels really soft, cozy, relaxed and as promised, not bulky. Styling is simple, sleek and smart (no pocket flaps sticking out) beautiful grey/green, not as olive as other military styles. I’m TTS M (5.5, 128-ish lbs) and I’m lucky - MW arm length is perfect on me. The collar detail is great too - buttons to create a kind of tube neck that works great over a turtleneck. I’ll be wearing this for years, thank you MW!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cozy! This coat is pretty sturdy, so it's great for the weather where a sleeping bag parka coat is too hot but a little jacket won't cut it. I'm 5'4 and 115 and an XS fits like a dream. I would recommend going up a size if you want to wear bulky sweaters underneath, but if not I would go for your normal Madewell size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Casual Jacket I'm usually between sizes and picked this up in an XS instead of a Small to fit my shoulders and relatively short arms (I'm 5'2"). It fits pretty good, but is a little tight around my hips--double zipper solves this problem since I can just unzip a little from the bottom. The jacket is a little long and the side entry pockets are a little hard to get into. There's also no interior drawstring or pockets. It's also not quite as warm as I thought it would be, and the collar has some trouble staying up. However, overall, I still like the jacket a lot and the amount of pockets is great so that I can wear it without carrying a bag if I want to. I also really love the inner ribbed cuff to help keep you warm. The color is a very grey-green, which should be versatile. It's probably not warm enough for a warmer winter day for me, but fall and cool spring days, it will be great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute mid-season jacket This jacket wasn't really what I was expecting—the sleeves are quilted inside, so it's very cozy. However, the thicker sleeves looked pretty big on me. I'm normally an XS in Madewell items, but I could have sized down to the XXS in this. Too bad it's sold out!
