    Wield it with pride.

    When you're splitting up cords of ash for the winter or throwing back some potato vodka to keep warm because you forgot to split wood last fall, the Roark Revival Axeman Men's Jacket is there. Made of heavy-duty cotton canvas and lined with warm sherpa fleece, it's warm enough for winter wear, but with plenty of style for your trips downtown.

    This is the truth.

    For too long now, I've been having to throw on multiple layers just to keep warm during the winter seasons. Getting this jacket completely changes that. With just a t shirt underneath my upper body is warm and cozy in this jacket. I really dig all the sherpa fleece especially in the hand pockets. I got the "indigo" style and the classic denim look really makes one stand out when everyone else is looking like marshmellows. Overall, the only thing I wish was different about this jacket, was if they added a hood, but a beanie looks fine, and there is plenty of room to throw a hoodie on underneath.

    Definitely my new favorite jacket!

    Where do I start? It's fully lined with Sherpa, so it's undoubtedly warm. The pockets are lined as well, so your hands stay nice and toasty on even the most gelid days. The outer material (canvas) is heavy and though, but the jacket is still lightweight. Also, the ribbed cuffs ensure wind doesn't travel up your sleeves. The fireman clasps are nifty, though they seem less than functional (still cool though). It feels really well made; it will probably last me a very long time/lifetime with good care. The only real downside I can find is that the pockets aren't deep, but your hands will fit in them perfectly.
    I first wore this on a 19 degree day, and it kept me perfectly comfortable. All in all, I would say it's worth the price and will easily become a favorite for anyone who buys it.

    Excellent Jacket

    Tried this on in a surf shop prior to grabbing it elsewhere for a little cheaper. I can't speak to the overall build quality over years of use, but it's the perfect combination of functionality and looks. It does the same thing as a puffy down vest, but instead of looking like a sleeping bag, you look like an awesome lumberjack (though actual lumberjacks undoubtably wear Carhartts).

    I wasn't thoroughly sold until I felt the sherpa pockets. They're a little small, not for storing stuff really, but they're so soft and warm I never want to take my hands out of them. I don't know why all pockets aren't like this. My hands are perpetually cold, and after just a little while in these pockets they're warm, and stay that way.

    The best part is despite how warm it is, it's pretty light and thin. I have a Spiewak bomber that's about as warm, but it's thick and wooly, where as the canvas on this guy is soft and thin; it's actually pretty packable.

    I can't think of another jacket that's as functional and good looking for camping, hiking, traveling, or going out in. The clasps at the top aren't exactly practical but.. they do look extremely cool.

    Like everyone else who's reviewed it, I'm a tall skinny guy. This is one of the best fit jackets I've ever owned, in a medium. The sleeves are a little short, and if you wanted to fit other layers under it you could get a large, but the medium is pretty much perfect.

    Honestly my only complaint is my watch clicks against the snap button in the pocket, and I dunno why you'd ever want to shut off those glorious sherpa pockets. In short, it's perfect. It's versatile, warm, light, and looks awesome.

    Bury me with it.

    I had been looking for a durable, warm, & thick jacket for sometime. I stumbled upon this website & came across Roark's clothing line.

    This jacket is solid through & through. The Sherpa lining is softer than most I've come across. Sherpa lined pockets are a huge plus! The external fabric ensures you won't be bothered by wind, rain, & light snow.

    I live in southern CA, so my climate is much different from the rest of the reviewers, but I can assure you the wind can really cut through you at times.

    I'm 6'1" & my arms a bit longer than average. I purchased the M in camel & the fit is nearly perfect. A little snug around the lats when I cross my arms but that's a minor issue.

    Overall, I'm thoroughly satisfied with this jacket & will be for years to come. Hell, I'll pass it down a generation after I'm ashes.

    Great Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    • Size Bought: Large

    This is an awesome jacket. My first thought when I got it was that the outer canvas felt softer than I had expected, yet still pretty durable. The fleece lining is soft and super warm. It would be nice if it went down into the sleeves as well, but I guess it's easier to take on and off this way.

    On the closure system: I was a little disappointed that it had both a zipper and the buttons. I generally prefer just buttons, although the zipper does help keep in the warmth and is of pretty good quality. The buttons are also really good. They don't feel like they'll pop off any time soon. The fasteners are also a really cool touch, although they can be finicky at times. One thing I really like about this jacket is that the collar can be worn well either up or folded down, which is a feature I find flawed in most other jackets I've worn.

    All in all, the only thing I kind of didn't like about this jacket was the ribbed cuffs. They seem a little too big and they only seem to function as a lining for the outer cuffs rather than a feature to keep the warmth in. I would say that I should have gotten a medium instead of a large, but then the sleeves would be way too tight on my arms. Either way, this is a great jacket and I'm happy with my purchase.

    Appease your inner lumberjack.

    Pros: I needed to order a new jacket for a 3 day trip to Glacier National Park this last October. Weather was looking to be about 50 during the day and 30's in the early morning; found this gem and was immediately hooked on first sight. For 125 bucks I didn't feel that bad about my semi-spontaneous buy, and I don't regret it at all to this day. The outside material is very durable, which comes with canvas, and yet is so soft and allows for great mobility. The sherpa lining was the cherry on top; the 30 degree mornings didn't stand a chance against it. Never felt a hint of cold. The pockets are also sherpa lined and are pretty much the best pockets i've used to this day. I hiked 27 miles in it and I did tend to get warm pretty quickly, but hey, i'll take that over never getting me warm in the first place. Once I returned home, i got to show it off at school; COMPLIMENTS GALORE. I've never been one to be approached by random strangers walking the halls, admiring my "style". So many people wondering where I got it. everyone loves this jacket. I'd love to have the other colorways as well, and once my olive green one wears out, i'll be sure to grab another without hesitation.

    Cons: I ran into one problem while relaxing at cracker lake, 6 1/5 miles into the glacier wilderness. As I was closing the very top clasp, it just finagled itself out of the little hinge system and fell to the ground. There's an easy fix though because the clasps are just made of what seems like brass, which is a very soft metal. Once you put the clasp back into the hinge, you can easily close the gap in the hinge with some pliers, boom problem solved.

    Basically, just get this jacket if you like it even in the slightest.
    I'm 6'4 170 lbs. Which is pretty skinny i guess. Ordered a medium and surprisingly, the sleeves are pretty much just long enough. As for overall length, i guess it's a little short, but I don't mind my flannels sticking out underneath. It has buttons on the sides to make it more snug, so if you are tall and skinny and want longer sleeves but not a wider body, then you don't really have to worry about sizing up one.

    Haven't taken it off yet...

      This is by far one of the best deals I have gotten on a casual jacket. Price to quality ratio is terrific. As described, perfect for a hike or heading to a casual night out with my lady. Fit is great. Color is dark army green - not brown - which is what I thought given picture.

      Work Wear with a Touch of Exoticism

        A classic work wear jacket in heavy cotton canvas lined with cozy Sherpa fleece, the Axeman has been with Roark on backwater adventures ranging from Icelandic Fjords to the rutted back roads of the Himalaya. For me, on a nomadic goat-packing journey in the High Uinta range, it offered a perfect blend of warmth and hardwearing durability. While wayward sparks from the fire melted gaping holes in the lightweight down jackets of my companions, the Axeman’s canvas exterior brushed them off like a pesky fly. Two other features that make this jacket unique are the soft, ribbed cuffs which fit snugly around the wrists and the fireman clasps in place of the top two buttons. The clasps add a hint of exoticism, as if a western farm boy lost two buttons on his pilgrimage through the orient and replaced them with fasteners found at a sprawling bazaar.

Work Wear with a Touch of Exoticism

        So far, so good.

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        Honestly, it's hasn't been lower than 40 degrees (Fahrenheit, if that helps) where I live so I haven't needed to use it at all. But I've put it on twice since I've bought it and the fit is really nice. January and February are fairly brutal where I'm from so I'll have to return and edit my review once winter's come.

        Roark Revival "Himalayan Halfway House"

        We find Roark in Nepal in search of spiritual ruin so to speak. He’s guided to a halfway house high in the Himalayas that is run by a wayward Sadhu. It’s a base camp for drifters, degenerates, lost trekkers and criminals in search of whiskey, women & motorcycles. Will enlightenment be fast enough to chase Roark down? The Fall 2015 collection fits the climate of the temperate Kathmandu valley and the rugged cold of the Himalayas. Mysticism permeates the goods and Nepalese textile prints adorn the garments as karma guides the way.

        can someone clarify exactly what colour the camel is? is it the brownish as pictured, or the olive drab depicted in some of the photos?

        How warm is this jacket? Is it comfortable to wear at 50-30 Fahrenheit or does the sherpa fleece make it too heavy?
