Our reviewer liked this coat overall, which proved useful in cooler temperatures, but decided that it perhaps isn't suitable for all occasions
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.
