Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this coat! This is a great coat for cold weather! It's so nice you almost want two! One for the barn and one to wear into town. I originally bought the small based on the measurements given but I found it a little tight through the shoulders for me. SmartPak was great about taking it back and sending me a size up right away at no additional charge in shipping. I love that about SmartPak!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So warm! This coat is amazing! So many great features, very well designed. Definitely the warmest coat I have ever owned. The sizing is a little weird, small if you go by the number (6, 8 etc) but normal if you go by the s, m, l sizing.Very comfortable in the saddle and also great for ground work. A great find!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great to ride in! This coat has a flattering fit, I bought a 12, fits perfectly! Lots of great benefits, 2 way zip, washable, hood, back zippers open to allow to wear while riding, very warm! It is a 10!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very warm but poor zipper design I was looking for a warm coat that would cover more than just my upper body and after reading all the great reviews I purchased this one!The Pros:- it is very warm, granted I live in Texas but it can get into the occasional 30s and to us that feels cold! :-)- I like the design of the skirt, the leg straps and the material in general!- It definitely covers more than my torso, which on a 5'3 vertically-challenged-frame can look a bit overwhelming, but I am definitely warm from head-to-toe (literally!).The Cons:- I cant believe no one else mentioned it (or maybe it's just my particular coat) but the front zipper sucks!!! Two issues: it's a pain to align the 2-part zipper, took me literally 5 min to get it to zip up the first time around! The other issue is that once you get it to zip up, the zipper gets caught into the inside lining! You have to be quite careful zipping up and down! So that's a bit too "high maintenance" for me coming from a riding piece of apparel...The zipper issue was not enough of a deal breaker to return it, but definitely enough to knock a star out! No one likes to wrestle with a zipper! :-) But other than that it's great and I now look forward to cold days at the barn!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexpectedly WARM! I bought a Large, as that was the largest size still available. When I ordered, I thought I would have preferred an XL, to give me more room for layers, but it turned out it was a moot point. I can fit a sweater and "padded" vest underneath the coat without losing ease of movement. We have had nights lately in the sub-zero range (Fahrenheit scale) and there have been times where I almost get too warm while doing my basic barn chores (feeding and checking on 3 horses). It also is very comfortable for riding in (generally limited to times when temperatures are at least in the high teens). No more frozen thighs and butt. The only negative is that the coat doesn't come in sizes for "fluffy" ladies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great winter riding / teaching coat! I bought this coat about a month ago and have been pretty impressed with it! It does not require a ton of layers underneath to keep me warm! I love how long it is when riding or standing! I am a Riding instructor and wanted a longer coat for when I am standing and teaching lessons and this coat does the job. I am also the manager of a boarding facility and use this coat when feeding and turning horses out. The only thing I would say is for other barn chores (such as cleaning stalls) the coat may be a bit bulky. Other then that it's the best winter riding coat I've ever owned!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very High Quality! I love the quality of this coat - the construction is superior to many products today - with seam backing, double stitching in many places, and high quality fabric. The sizing is accurate - I ordered a small and it fits me well if I don't wear a big sweater under it. I'm 5'4", 115', and have broad shoulders for my frame. I highly recommend this ELT brand and hope SmartPak continues to carry their high quality line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth it! I am obsessed with jackets. But I didn't have this one. When this was on sale and I realized I "needed" a warm LONG winter jacket, I thought I'd try it. Then we were hit with a major rain storm here in Northern CA (yay!!) and when I had no choice but to do ranch chores in the pouring rain, I reached for this coat. I wore it for over 2 hours outside (raining the whole time, in the low 30s) and combined with my Hunter wellies, I was dry and warm almost all over. The only part that got a little wet was behind my knees because I was walking around a lot. The coat covers the tops of my wellies when I'm standing or sauntering, but not when I'm doing the barn-chore-power-walk. You know the one. The back unzips in two spots with a generous skirt that will be perfect for riding and is nice when you're moving around a lot (The Hubs said I looked like Evie from Assassin's Creed... gamers, anyone?) The hood has fill also so is nice and warm. The downsides: the hood is almost too shallow, but I find that with a lot of coats. I just wear a headband/ear warmer and it's fine. The drawstring helps size it so it stays on. Also, the elastic cuff inside the sleeves isn't super comfortable, but it keeps the water and wind out. The snaps on the lower part of the coat won't stay closed unless you're just standing, but the cut is generous enough (esp with the back zippers undone) it didn't bother me. Fit: I am 5'7", 128# and got the small (my usual size). According to the size chart, I should have been in a M but went with my gut and I'm glad I did. the M would have been huge. I do wish the sleeves were a tad longer but I always have that problem. I like the way it fits; it is snug and I don't have a lot of layering room, but all I needed was a fleece top underneath. Overall, I would get this coat again and I am glad to have an option for riding when it's raining.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Function and style I bought this coat right after Christmas when temps in TX were starting to drop and my other barn jackets weren't cutting it. The second I tried it on after delivery I was a fan. It's very warm and the two back zippers that allow the coat to be worn in the saddle put it over the top. I like the blue. I bought the medium. It's generous on my frame, but I figured the small might have been tight in the shoulders if i needed to layer and freedom of movement in the arms is more important to me. The hood lays flat and doesn't interfere with your helmet which is great. All in all a great buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great coat!! This coat has really come in handy now that it has gotten much colder all of a sudden. It has many features and is very warm and comfortable. I especially love how the leg flaps keep my legs warm while riding and how the cuffs have the inserts that keep the wind out. The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because I keep having trouble with the long zipper that zips up the front. I keep having trouble getting it to zip. I am not sure why it is so hard to get it to do that as I have several jackets with the same kind of double ended zipper and have never had a problem. It worries me that the bottom of the zipper might not last and I will need a costly replacement. Other than that, I absolutely love the coat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warmer than expected I hesitated buying this, and only gave it 4 stars because I think it should be a little bit roomier around the arms/shoulders, there is not room to layer a puffy down vest underneath, and if I went up a size I would be swimming in it. But, it was surprisingly warm enough. I'm 5'1", size small. I love the insulated front over the thighs, and the drape did not bother the horses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My "MAGIC" Coat I bought this as a Christmas present to myself knowing that winter had to show up sooner or later. I'm so thrilled I did!! I've been able to teach lessons after dark and not freeze!! When you combine this coat with smartpaks winter over breech and the mountain horse high rider boots, there's no way you'll get cold even in below freezing temps!!I bought a L, 5'7" and 28 in breeches. fits perfect even over another short coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for clinic wear I have had it for two weeks and love it. true to size lots of pockets and stays closed around your legs when walking at a clinics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm!!!! I received this coat for Christmas. It is nice and warm - I am almost never warm enough in Denver, CO and this was definitely warm! I like all the features, with the exception of the zipper - it is hard to start the zipper because of the way the lining is cut. Other than that this is a great coat! As I have only had it a few weeks, I cannot address durability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I purchased this a month ago since our weather out West has been cold. It is beautifully made and tailored. Very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quick shipping, great jacket I'm not a rider but I needed a really warm, polyester- (non-feather) filled jacket and this ones great! it's stylish to wear as an every day winter coat and its functional with all its pockets. id say it runs true to size (I'm 5'3, 120lbs and I fit a Small perfectly), but the back unzips for a fanned effect and allows for layering. the zippers are a bit stiff, but I think it'll go away as its worn in.I also wanted to say customer service at smaet pak equine is fantastic. I placed my order and then a day later needed to adjust it, and the customer service rep took care of it immediately without any hassle. thank you! highly recommended!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a terrific coat, seems very well made and I was very warm in a thin shirt while standing outside in 19deg to test warmth. I ordered a Small which I was told is a sz 8, but is too snug at my hips and definitely too small for layers. Am exchanging it for a Medium and look forward to being warm while teaching for hours.
Date published: 2016-01-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect. Absolutely perfect. This is exactly what I wanted and nobody else seems to make. It covers my legs, fits over a saddle, is very well made and flattering, and has all the right features. Oh, and it is warm. :) Two thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! Got it, love it, buy it!! Nice and warm, stops the wind and love the long length. I ride out all winter in the western burbs of Chicago. I ordered the XL, I'm 5'7 and wear a size 12. It fits perfectly over my layers. The other barn girls approve of it too!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat! Warm, love the length and the bottom unzips to lay over the back of saddle and on my horses back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Find!!! We r in the deep freeze of winter and wanted a warm coat for the barn. This coat is not only warm but is so well made and flattering that it is my goto coat every time I walk out the door. So comfortable and there is such attention to detail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! This coat is very warm and very flattering, I love it and have gotten so many compliments on it! I wear it in the barn, riding, and then into town as well, perfect for every occasion in the cold Indiana weather. Water slides right off and heat stays in, very functional coat especially love all the zippers and pockets. Extra small fit perfectly my 5'5 110lb frame, sleeve length is great and I can still fit a fleece underneath if needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too nice to ride in! This is the warmest coat I have ever owned. It is very stylish and doesn't look at all like a "barn" coat. It is comfortable for riding and stays in place across my thighs. My biggest decision is whether or not I should purchase another one for wearing outside of the horse world!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this jacket! This jacket manages to have a great, feminine shape, is warm and comfortable. I wear it to teach and on really cold days ride in it (which works well). The only couple things I might change (though not a deal-breaker) is that the inner-cuff has a thick, elastic band that is not the most functional or comfortable, and that the buttons below the zipper pop apart when I lean down to do something, but stay together well enough if I am just standing or walking. Overall, very pleased with styling, comfort and warmth of jacket and look forward to enjoying it over the winter months!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought it for my wife. Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but it fits well and she likes it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and wonderful I bought this product on a friend's recommendation. I am glad I did. It is warm and very funtional on and off the horse. The zippers allow you to sit comfortably in the saddle, there are lots of pockets, it's washable and very warm. My biggest complaint is our weather has been warm so I'm not wearing the coat much.
