I'd second the Weekender coat. I had a Field Jacket, but didn't like the arms (a bit too short for me; I wear a 35" shirt sleeve) and the lack of handwarmer type pockets. They are all well made.
Not sure where you're getting the lack of handwarmer pockets. The Field Jacket (1441n) definitely has them. I don't find the arms too short (34-35 here) but to each his own on that one. I think you can't go wrong with anything traditionally made by Filson, but the Field Jacket is I believe the closest thing to a Barbour you're going to find from them.

The Beaufort is 33" long I think, and the field coat is a short jacket, so in that sense they're quite different. The Weekender coat is surely closer in length. That said, I think that the Filson and Barbour coats are actually quite different in feel and appearance.
Totally agree on this last part (and you're right, field jacket is closer to the Bedale probably). Filson's to me seem more rugged and less dressy. Both are quality products so it depends more on what you're looking for.

dont skimp, this is the one purchase where I can guarantee its worth it. having worked with filson's customer service as a retailer, and owned multiple products of filson's, either dont buy and save, or stretch for the filson coat. you won't regret it.
