HUF Mountain Coat - Received this in the mail on Tuesday. Ordered from Flatspot.com.
I had been eyeing this coat up for a while but i’m always weary about buying online as you do not get to try it on. Although you can return it, this is normally a very a stressful task.
I’m a long time fan of the mountain style parka, and this one really caught my eye, now it cost £150 which isn’t too bad, But the coat is reasonably minimal for the price. More of a jacket than a coat as it is quite short, total length comes in at around 27” which is unusual for a coat of this style.
Overall i’m won over, the cut is great and although short still looks good. The Chest pockets won’t get much usage but the waist pockets are just right for storing your wallet, keys or phone. The best pockets are the hand warmers behind the waist pockets. These are a must have for me on any jacket as i have a habit of always walking around with my hands in my pockets.
The cuffs are adjustable which is also nice to see, nothing worse than baggy cuffs.
The lining of the jacket is olive green, with black draw strings that have “HUF Quality Garments” sewn in. These are on the hood and waist which are both adjustable, they can be worn inside or outside the jacket.
This coat is not waterproof and i would say although being called a mountain coat, it is best worn in summer.
