How many coats do you own? We need them for Winter, Spring and Fall. I don’t have the closet space for a million coats so, I love the 3-in-1 coats and jackets. The problem I found with these, when buying them from most chain retailers, is the sleeves are not easy to slip in and out of. The boys always have problems with these. They come loose, they ride up your arm or the just don’t feel comfortable when attached.
I finally found a comfortable 3-in-1 that actually stays put! Its the Switchback jacket from Free Country. The inner part of this jacket stays in place with snaps. Normally it is Velcro and it doesn’t stay. There is a snap on each cuff and one behind the collar. It’s easy to slip in and out of without the parts shifting.
The Switchback coat is 3 jackets in 1, combining an insulated, outer shell in signature Free Country Radiance fabric with a detachable hood and a separate, polyfil inner jacket. Two jackets zip together for the ultimate in winter function, and each jacket can be worn separately as weather dictates. Switchback may be a bit of a misnomer since the coat is a straightforward look with graceful, active lines and understated detail in a single off-axis pocket zipper.
You can wear the outer shell, the inner liner or wear them both together. I normally like longer jackets that cover my butt however, this one goes about half way so it wasn’t to bad. This one is also a great fall/spring jacket because you have the multiple pieces. The outer shell has a pocket on each side and then an upper chest pocket. The inner jacket has two pockets. There are two things I would change about this style. First, I would love an inside pocket on the outer shell and second, when you remove the inside jacket, the snap behind the collar is very annoying on the back of your neck. Unless you are wearing a hoodie or something to cushion it, then it’s okay. They are a little snug with the inner jacket connected so, I would recommend ordering a size up.
Some great features are: Machine Washable, Adjustable Velcro Cuffs, Detachable Hood with Adjustable Drawcord, Length from Center Back (on a M) is 27.5″ and the 3 Jackets in 1 Wind Resistant. I wore this out playing in the snow and the only thing that was cold was my butt
This is a great time of the year to pick one of these 3-in-1 jackets up because most of them are 50% OR MORE off!
