Are you into greatcoats? Even if you aren't, this newer version of the Swiss army greatcoat will make you see the light. Firstly, although being "newer", these aren't exactly new, decades old at least. These are less "military" in appearance than the old greatcoats, making them more suitable for street use. Being Swiss, they're crafted with love and skill of high-quality materials. Available with or without a wool lining.

Features

In the early 20th century, a greatcoat was a de-facto combat clothing article of just about any soldier in any army. A few decades later, most armies had adopted lighter, better alternatives, and greatcoats were mainly used in non-combat duties. These are made in those times, which means the general outlook is less war-like.

These are available in two options. One without a detachable lining and the other with a detachable wool frieze lining. The latter is a thick and heavy coat for those really cold winters. The ones we checked didn't have any info on materials. So these can be pure wool or a blend of some sort.

Care

There are two things that make cleaning these a bit tricky. A) This is a great big bulky coat that might not fit well into a washing machine. B) It's wool, meaning it hates hot water and if washed with such and dried at a high temperature, it might shrink, the fabric transmogrifying into cat's hairballs. Fortunately wool also resists soiling very well - you're usually well off with just brushing any dirt off, or cleaning the specific spot with water, soap, a brush, and some vigorous scrubbing.

Size info

First you have the recommended user height, then the recommended chest circumference. The original Swiss size is in the brackets. Since you’re supposed to fit a lot of thick stuff underneath, the width of the midsection is pretty generous. So, if you don’t plan on storing the whole world underneath, you can easily take a smaller size. These feature French cuffs that can be freely rolled up or down for a custom fit even for an orangutan. The waist can be adjusted from the back with the appropriate tab.

Condition

These are in excellent condition, so they have either never seen any use or they have been used in a very neutral fashion.

High quality and quite warm from previous experience with one in thoroughly unpleasant weather in the Canadian Rockies on a horse riding excursion (I foolishly got rid of that one though) and with the liner that this one has should be even warmer still. The one I had previously also did a better job of keeping me dry than my waterproof coat and dried out quicker too once we'd escaped the torrential downpour and hung everything up in the drying room.

The ones offered here, asides from having the elusive liner inside, might even have badges and/or ranks on compared with most I've come across in other places that come devoid of anything other than the buttons, the one I received (I went for the with a liner option) has a rank badge on it.

Yet another great milsurp greatcloak.

Not as formal/military/combloc looking as the Polish greatcloak, which I also have. It's a great, more everyday option.

Isn't new, but the only sign of use is the usual milsurp funk and some wrinkles. Going to get it dry cleaned and see how that helps.

Side note: Of all the random crap I've bought from Varusteleka, I've only hever had issues with US Customs when I've ordered greatcloaks...

Excellent coat. Very heavy wool, I could probably be butt naked under this and still be warm in 32° F weather, and that's without the liner. Mine is in unissued condition as stated, even had a tag still. For the money I'd say this is a wonderful coat and you'd be hard pressed to find anything as nicely made or as warm at this price.

Ehtaa ylijäämää, kaupanpäällisinä edellisen käyttäjän pikkusikarit ja sytkäri taskussa. Sytkäri ei tosin toiminut, ja pikkusikaritkin olivat polttokelvottomiksi kuivuneet. Mutta mantteli on priimaa.

Great coat at a great price. The bottom of the coat has traces of the sacred Swiss earth, but I think that dry cleaning will solve this problem. The parcel reached the center of Eurasia in 24 days - and this is very fast. Thank you Varusteleka!

Very nice quality coat but came with what appears to be 3 rust stains on the back and one long one on the front of the collar. I haven't been able to get them out yet. Not really what I'd call "excellent condition". If it weren't for it being advertised as excellent condition I'd find this to be otherwise acceptable.

Absolutely bloody fantastic! Robust, heavy, wool. Obviously used but in great condition. Mine came with a troop tag (cheers, Josef Felder!!). Slightly wrinkled, lovely tang of mothballs, and WARM AF!! Couldn’t be happier.

Fantastic. Extremely warm, mine didn't have any odd smells or stains. Much more modest than the Eastern Bloc ones. Looks amazing with a waist belt (it even has a couple loops for one).

Really amazing quality of the wool, and didn't look or feel used at all. You can definitely go a size lower with this. I'm 169cm and have a chest cfm of 92 and got the 46BB, and it still has a bit of tentiness going, like I'm a boy wearing grandpas coat. I'm just cursed being at the lower end of the bell curve of male sizes and that was the smallest one. It still looks pretty sharp if you tighten it up with a waist belt, maybe I'll have to build some muscles as well. I'm definitely keeping it though, with the liner I expect to comfortably wear this in whatever winter scandinavia can throw at me.

Mine came with a unit marking on the epaulet, a small sewed-on insignia on the sleeve, completely clean and had basically no wrinkles.
