The Hac Tac long ladies jacket is great for those frosty mornings and chilly evenings. The parka style coat features a cosy faux fur trim around the hood and a buttoned storm flap to help keep out the cold. I love the faux fur trim – it looks very luxurious. The jacket also has a double zip fastening, two zipped front pockets that are great for keeping your valuables safe, a soft brushed lining on the neck and reflective Hac Tac branding and piping. This makes it a good coat to wear throughout winter, especially on the roads or when you need to be seen.

The coat is very good value and is warm and comfortable. I have worn it on the coldest of days and it’s like taking your duvet out with you, as it’s so snug. I especially like the elasticated cuffs as you can pull them over your thumbs to keep the cold out. The coat is a good length and comes to just above the knees, so I am truly well wrapped up.

I feel that the coat is a bit too nice to wear at the yard and the length may restrict movement when you’re trying to bend down and fill your haynets etc. I think the coat is better suited for dog walks etc. The reflective strips and branding gives the coat a sporty look and the coat has a subtle shine that adds to this. This puts me off wearing it out to smarter non-sporting events, however it’s perfect to take to a horse show when I’m stuck standing around watching. My only criticism is that this doesn’t look the most expensive of materials, but then it is a great value coat so I can’t complain.

The coat comes up true to size, if not a little bit on the larger size. I am a UK size 10-12 and have this coat in a size 10. It fits me well, however it is a little tight around the chest, but I have this problem with most clothing!

One thing to watch out for is feathers poking out of the seams. This has happened with all down filled coats that I have owned, but I’d recommend keeping an eye open for it and pulling them out so that it doesn’t look untidy. If I were to recommend any feedback it would be nice to see the jacket in a matte-finish and perhaps an option without the white branding if preferred.

Overall I would recommend this jacket to a friend looking for a great value, snug coat to keep them toasty when battling the elements.
