People tend to use “classic” rather loosely these days. That’s not the case for the Woolrich Classic Wool Hunt Coat, which was first manufactured back in the 1800s and continues to be one of the outdoor wear company’s most popular pieces to date.
A style that looks good whether you’re an actual hunter who can handle a rifle or a guy who’s only ever fired a Nerf gun in his life should explain much of that longevity. I mean, carrying a crossbow while wearing this thing will surely help the overall aesthetic, but you can rock it to the local coffee shop with a laptop in tow and still look suitably nice.
Beyond its looks, the Woolrich Classic Wool Hunt Coat is rightfully a classic for its function. Not only will the thick material and tight weave let you stay warm in the face of single-digit wind chills, the darn thing can shed water with the best of them, too. It features a traditional relaxed fit, a two-piece sleeve that leaves you plenty of room, knitted storm cuffs, a collar that stays up to keep out cold and breezes, vintage-style six-pocket front (four outer snap pockets and two hand-warmer pockets), an internal security pocket, and a back stowage pocket for holding any small game you manage to hunt along the trail (or a spare muffin you’ll eat later in the day). Construction is 18.5-oz wool for the shell and twill for the liner, which runs through the entire body and sleeves.
The Woolrich Classic Wool Hunt Coat is priced at $249.
