Good luck. Like you, I wish your their sizing were more consistent. Right now it is still a little bit of a hit and miss. My Tin Clock jacket (now discontinued model called the Timberline) is size Small, and it is still larger around the body then the Alaska Fit Med size Mike Marker, and about as big as my older (26-oz) size 40 wool Mackinaw Cruiser.
In my case, the Seattle Fit Med was "exactly" my size - meaning if I sat down, there was no room/material to allow me to extend the arms forward (like for example driving a car, typing on a computer, etc.). And that was without an inner layer. It was just too tight to allow for movement doing normal stuff. It fitted more like a fitted, tight suit jacket, than an outdoor jacket (which is what I wanted). The Alaska Fit Med was cut more generously in the back and in the...
I got this one in Seattle Fit (Med), and it was too tight. I exchanged it for the Alaska fit (also Med), and it was a perfect size.http://www.filson.com/products/cover-cloth-mile-marker-coat-sf.10409.html?fromCat=true&fvalsProduct=mens/coats-jackets&fmetaProduct=1011/I have exchange with them a couple of times, and if you tell them exactly where it too big/small, they can recommend the right size based on that.
I just ordered one of them - thanks
I was able to visit Filson again during another business trip. This time I also visited their new HQ offices: Really, not much to do, since all you can do is take a couple of pictures from within the main lobby in the main floor/reception. Second floor is restricted - corporate offices: Not that I would recommend food that is not healthy, but if you arrive too early, there is a nearby (and very large) KK shop about 1/2 a block away: Since I was so...
Looks fantastic - great job man!
+1And congratulations on getting the replacement zipper, even after initially you were told No. Way to go - it pays to be both polite "and" persistent

I checked it as you suggested, and you were right - thin indeed. But I still have to try it, so I went ahead and gave it 2 heavy coats of the Greenland Wax all over the cap, and additional 2 heavy coats just on the seams on top - it noticeably darkened the material, and now when held against the light, there is less light through it. I am back in Texas (so don't have the daily rain as I had in Seattle), but I will report later how well (or not) it holds up.
