Sandanona Wax Cloth Jacket

Named after our historic shooting grounds in upstate New York, our wax cloth jacket embodies the sporting lifestyle in a handsome, functional piece of outerwear engineered for damp, chilly conditions. Crafted from our water-resistant wax cloth, it's trimmed with a corduroy collar and tailored with underarm gussets (not traditional side seams), which offer increased range of motion when reaching or shooting. A center front placket snaps securely over the full zip to keep wind and rain out. Other features include a removable hood, two upper handwarmer pockets, and two lower cargo pockets. Inside, there's one zip-close pocket, one snap-close pocket, and a larger pocket that easily accommodates a hat, gloves, or an electronic tablet. Lined with soft brushed twill, our jacket also features a zip system, which accepts our Sandanona Quilted Vest(shown zipped in above, item #8T8H is sold separately). Taffeta-lined sleeves provide easy on-and-off. Water-resistant waxed cotton/nylon shell. Polyester/rayon/spandex upper body lining. Nylon lower body lining, sleeve lining. Washable. Imported. Sizes: M(38-40), L(42-44), XL(46-48), XXL(50-52); about 32" long in size medium.

another classic jacket,
June 5, 2014
By: olderguysrule
from Minnesota
"Got the jacket a few weeks back. It is perfect for spring and fall days and or the camping trip as it is lightly insulated. Quality is excellent and the size seems to as other Orvis jackets. That is if you got another jacket from Orvis, the size on this one should be similar. It may be a bit warm for the summer rain day, but I figured this to be the case when I purchased it so this is not a problem for me. Hey Orvis, where's the non insulated version?"

Favorite coat,

"This is a great looking and practical coat for travel and every day. It is long enough to cover a sport coat. It has nice pockets. Warm enough for to be useful for every season, with a warm sweater and sport coat in northern winters and open in the summer. It keeps you dry with a nice hood too."

Great Light Jacket,
May 15, 2014
By: KansasPete
from Lenexa, KS
"I've been coveting this jacket for a while after having seen it in a retail store, so when it went on sale I jumped on it.
First, the good:
It fits really well. I'm usually between XL & XXL and the XL is about the right fit.
The jacket is unlined, so it's lightweight. It's ideal for overcast, spring/fall days where it's windy, might rain and/or the high temperature is under 65. The hood is nice, as is the option to add some additional warmth with a zip-in vest.
The jacket provides decent protection from the elements, but when wearing it in a light, steady rain I did get wet, so don't plan on this serving as your rain jacket (as I had hoped to).
The materials and build quality seem to be top-notch. The cotton linings are soft and the wax cloth is sumptuous and gives a nice tactile experience.
So, overall this is a good looking jacket that is comfortable to wear & will serve you well in transitioning between more extreme temperatures."

"I typically wear a large but the cut of this jacket is too small so I'm exchanging it for an XL. Otherwise, this is a great product."
