This is that coat — the one you find yourself reaching for the minute you feel a chill in the air.
Mackinaw cloth is a heavy and dense water-repellent woollen cloth. It was first used to make these coats in November 1811, when they were commissioned for the British Army at Ft. St. Joseph, Ontario (near Mackinac). They were later made famous by American loggers in the upper midwest as workwear during the mid-19th century logging boom. Today, they remain a firm favourite by many people as an outer layer in cold weather environments.
The Stormy Kromer Mackinaw Wool Coat is made from 26 oz. 100% virgin wool, making it the heaviest and warmest Mackinaw Wool Coat available. It is extremely durable, water repellent and very warm. The six pockets are utterly convenient. And the five-button front offers flexibility for layering.
This is the olive green version.
Very impressed with this coat. It's a great fit, leaving plenty of room to put layers on underneath, very well made, comfortable and although I've only been able to try it outside on a few occasions so far it's been ideal.
What a fantastic coat! I’ve held off writing this review until late spring, as I like to thoroughly test any product I review, so this coat has been my primary coat throughout the winter. This coat is amazing. I’ve literally been in the worst of the UK weather with this coat (for context, I’m an avid wild camper), and wet or dry this coat has kept me warm. Pair this with a Stormy Kromer wool waistcoat and there’s no longer any such thing as “bad weather”. The build is exceptional and oozes quality. It’s rugged enough for serious outdoor tasks, yet stylish enough to wear in the city. In fact, I’ve actually had compliments from strangers about this coat. I’ve not once regretted buying one of these, and am seriously considering a second in the other colour.
I ordered a Stormy Kromer Mackinaw coat on Tuesday afternoon. It arrived first thing Thursday morning. Before ordering I contacted Natural Man to ask about the sizing. Mark rang me back and explained that he had contacted some of his customers who had the same coat and recommended a size for me. When the coat arrived it was the perfect size and the quality of the jacket is brilliant. I would have no hesitation in ordering from Natural Man again. Thank you.
