Thank you for considering a Creedmoor Hardback Heavy coat. We're sure you'll appreciate the traditional USA craftsmanship of our brand. We've been making competitive shooting coats since 1979 and really know our stuff! Our coats are worn by some of the top competitive shooters including, Dennis DeMille (our General Manager), Ty Cooper and David Tubb. Keep reading and you'll see why you want a Creedmoor on your back.
Why would you choose Creedmoor?
These are some of our design features that cannot be replicated by other manufacturers and set us a bar above the rest.
Shooting offhand in a Creedmoor heavy shooting coat is like leaning against a fencepost for support. Better scores prove it. Our superior design gives emphasis toward supporting the shooters standing position. Look at these shooting features contained in all our heavy coats.
-Raglan Sleeve for an all-important shoulder fit.
-A zippered sleeve (Left sleeve on a right handed coat) permits releasing bulky material in the crook of the arm while shooting standing.
-Large Spandex under-arm gussets permits unrestricted arm movement.
-A heavy quilted, quarter inch felt padded lining for body support.
-Strategically placed added padding creates "low pulse" effect when shooting with the sling on the arm.
-A quick and easy-to-use sling harness is provided to maintain the sling's position on the arm.
-One half inch padding protects the elbows.
-Textured rubber elbow, body and sling/pulse pads provide slip resistant contact while shooting.
-Contoured side-release nylon buckets with adjusting straps secures the coat around the body for maximum support.
-A soft, removable and washable terry cloth collar protects the shooters neck and coat material.
We have carefully prepared a demonstration video to help you get the correct sizing for your Creedmoor coat. Click on this link to get help guiding you through the sizing process:
We do not know how the sizing compares to other manufacturer because we're not like the others. Our design, as discussed above, is offered to you not as an addition to your shooting equipment. It's offered as the one item you must have at the range.
We size by the chest measurement. If you measure a 36" chest, you would order a size 36 coat. We offer a tapered cut if your waist is 4 inches or more than your chest, such as a 36 chest and 32 waist.
Sizes 34 thru 54 (additional $20 for extended sizes 50, 52, 54)
Please specify right handed shooter or left handed shooter.
Colors: We have a full assortment of available colors to choose from. Typically, you will want to choose a light color for the back. For example, blue front with silver back. There are no additional charges for two colors (3 colors or more is an additional $10/color). Please note, if you would like to do some wild combinations, please call to make sure it would be returnable in case of a fitting issue.
We also have added several camouflage color choices (addtl $20).

ALTERATIONS: Since our coats are individually hand made by out staff, we can make alterations such as Sleeve Length and Body Length to the coat. Please note, an altered coat is considered a "Keeper" and cannot be returned or exchanged. We suggest you only make alterations if absolutely necessary. Alterations must be called in to 1-800-273-3366 and the alteration fee is $25.00 .
To help you make a choice of options, we'd say 90% or more coats get the ventilation and all position upgrade. Maybe 35% get the shoulder straps. Maybe 20% get the embroidered emblem and/or patch. And, maybe 10% or less order the shoulder pad or alterations.
