The Retreat reversible anorak jacket has a water resistant Radiance polyester shell on one side and soft plush butter pile fleece on the other. Two jackets for the price of one! Designed with a zip-front and a hidden snap storm placket and hood with adjustable drawstrings and adjustable cuffs. The Retreat is perfect for all seasons. The metallic snap and stitched lined details make this as fashionable as it is functional.
Type of Fit: RELAXED A garment with a relaxed fit sits loosely on the body and can accommodate heavier layers such as a sweatshirt or sweater.
You cannot go wrong with these jackets, whether you get the reversible kind like this, or a softshell jacket lined with the same kind of fleece. I find these to fit me more comfortably than the softshell jackets I’ve tried on, however. Since I bought my first Free Country reversible jacket three years ago, I have found myself coming back to it over and over again when my other, more expensive coats did not keep me warm enough during wintry commute to and from work/school. I am now happy to own my second! These jackets provide great protection from wind, precipitation, and cold (even better with a sweater underneath). The light weight makes them comfortable to wear indoors, as well, and they pack away easily. I only wish Free Country would make LONG coats of a similar style, made of the same materials!

Great jacket!! I bought this jacket a couple years ago and purchased another last year because it is such a great jacket..I wore it all winter..very warm yet does not feel bulky..it is definitely a must if you are looking for something warm, comfortable and cute!!
I bought the exact jacket several years ago and have been trying to get another one since then. I am so excited that I was finally able to locate one and at a very reasonable price. Love everything about it!!!
I bought a similar jacket by Free Country 4 years ago in brown. I wished I would have bought one in black to, so this year I did. I'm a Florida native and this jacket is PERFECT for our unusual, constantly changing weather (rain, wind, cold). I purchased it in large even though I wear a medium so I could layer underneath it, if I needed to. This is my FAVORITE winter jacket
I really liked this jacket. Since my favorite color is red, I ordered a large. However, when it arrived, the color is closer to burgundy red than the red I was expecting. It was tight for me in the sleeves. You can't beat the price for a nice jacket like this. I would definitely recommend this to a friend. Working with Free Country is a pleasure. I sent this jacket back and had no problems. Of course, I chose a different jacket and am very pleased.
I bought this coat for winter and the fleece lining keeps me warm. I like the way it looks , but do not love the thin purple tie that is on the fleece side of the coat. Looks a little silly if I tie it. The zipper has given me a hard time on occasion, but I am pretty happy with my purchase.
I really like this coat! I bought one about 7 years ago and have worn it out, even sewn a couple of things I accidentally tore to keep using it. I finally had to give in and get another one. I was glad to find this one - it's almost identical to my old one. I do think it's a tad lighter though. I'm in Maine and I wear this coat most of the spring & fall - I can wear it in warmer days in the middle of winter. Dressy enough to look nice, but not too over the top for jeans either :)
