Kent Chore Coat

Rated 4.6 out of 5
Based on 14 reviews

Regular price $159

Get it on.

Don't do it. Don't go outside in that janky old parka even if it's just for a quick jaunt. The Kent Chore Coat has got your back—and front. Because chattering teeth won't help you get the job done. Named for our co-founder Sara Kent DeLuca, this coat is inspired by her farm childhood winters, when a short midnight walk to the barn to check on the lambs felt like a mile.

Packed with purpose. Toasty but never roasty. This coat answers all questions, including What is the meaning of life? A clever pocketing system means hidden ones, deep handwarmers, zip ones, snap ones. And that all-important hood stays on, adjusts to fit, and comes off when it warms up. Just how warm? We built Kent for work. Which means warm without being too hot, and roomy enough for layers. Kent also features the world's first plant-based water- and stain-repellent.

True Blue partner: Big props to our partner in production, Anubha. A young and forward-thinking mill in India, Anubha is recognized for its edge-of-the-cutting-edge sustainable and fair-trade manufacturing practices.

It's perfect

You know when it's freezing and you are wearing layers and you move one bucket and your coat becomes a jacuzzi? This coat does not. It's just the right amount of coat for moving and getting things done in cold weather without feeling smothering. I love it. Fit is true to size and pockets, deep pockets! I put my hammer in one to fix the gate just this morning. I think I need another one for off the farm!

My Go-To Coat this year

5 stars for this category of chore coat —I purchased the XS and there is still room for a thick sweater or puffer (or both), which is great. During the recent Portland Oregon snow and ice, it is the coat I reach for doing anything outside. It’s so comfortable that I also sometimes just keep wearing it inside too (lol). I like the soft, thin flannel inside, the deep pockets and removable hood.

The only negative is that the brand Teflon is used for the “eco” repellent and I didn’t know that until the coat arrived. Currently none of these are totally 100% eco but industry tests for that will provide for it soon (I hope Dovetail is first in line for brands other than Teflon when safer water repellents are 100% really eco, not just “plant-based” as a percentage. Thank you!

Love this coat

I run a little warmer so when I first bought this coat it was too warm to wear it but when it finally started dipping into freezing temps I could walk the dog with just a t shirt on and be perfectly warm. It’s been a great coat for shoveling snow now too! I wasn’t sure how waterproof it would be but it’s held up well for my snow chores. The morning after a late evening snowy adventure I grabbed my coat and a puddle of water fell out of the hood but the hood wasn’t soaked! I was pleasantly surprised. My only wish was that the sleeves were a little bit longer. I have broad shoulders so I often have this problem with women’s coats. I can still move through the shoulders great, just need a touch more length so the coat actually goes over my gloves when working and I don’t have that odd gap for a snow/dirt to get in my gloves when working.

Love it!

Living in the Northeast, I needed a coat that I could use across several seasons. I'm so happy to have found this warm coat that allows me to wear the layers I need and still fits well, that is longer in the back than in the front, and that also keeps me dry. It's lighter weight-wise than my old multi-season work coat, and it looks really good. I am proud to wear it. Thank you to all those involved in creating this wonderful coat.
