Mil-Spec Adventure Gear Fully Lined Wool Capote

The original capote was the winter coat of choice used by mountain men and trappers. It was first designed in the early 19th century using old wool blankets. This product is a modernized version of the early capotes and still proves to be an amazingly effective winter coat.

Wool is known to be one of the best natural insulators on the market. This capote consists of 75% wool which balances the benefits of comfort, durability and insulation. The inner lining displays a unique quilted pattern and features reinforced stitching along with hemmed edges.

The sleeves are meant to be long to help cover and protect the hands, one of the most vulnerable body parts to frost bite. A rain cape covers the back and shoulders for a water resistant layer. The draw string hood easily fits over any head caps and hats which further enhances functionality.

Slash pockets provide a storage unit for small, easy-access items and the wool belt doubles as another insulation component, as well as adding a flare of style.

The capote comes in 2 colors and 2 sizes. The fingertip length provides a degree of mobility while the long coat provides more protection.

The brown coat features a red stripe at the end of the sleeves and bottom area, while the gray coat features a yellow stripe.

Long Capote Weight: 4.81 lbs

Size Spec: The long capote is 46' in length

Dry clean only - It's recommended to dry clean before first use.

Q: What is the temperature range for the suggested use. The PNW winters where I am vary from 25 to 60 throughout the season. I want to make sure that I won't be too warm in the capote during warmer days because I will likely still need it for rain protection during those warmer days.
Asked by:  - 11/30/2014 (Submit an answer)
A: I have a full length one and I have a friend that has one. My friend was used to walk to work in the full length version at -20 degrees F and said he was always warm in it.

Mountain Capote Review

I initially purchased the "M" size of the Ranch Coat" (the shorter version of the Capote but found that even though my chest measurement is 41", the coat itself was a bit on the small side when overlapped, even though the shoulder width was dead on for a medium. Jasmine in Customer Service was VERY helpful in my decision to upgrade to a "Large" AND in helping me to get the exchange done expediently. The coat is very comfortable and warm even in icy winds up here at 9200'.There was a bit of 'processing odor' but nothing that a few days hanging outside didn't take care of. This is my first purchase with these folks and I will be back again.
