Hardback Heavy Cordura Nylon Shooting Coat
Our most famous and popular coat bar none. The outer shell is made of 1000 denier Cordura Nylon. This design makes it an ideal coat for either Smallbore or high-power rifle shooting. A stiff interior center back panel made of heavy cotton canvas (not plastic) designed into the coat provides maximum back support for the standing position. The additional support typically does not impede other positions.

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, 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 the 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 fence post 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 permit unrestricted arm movement.
  • A heavy quilted, quarter-inch felt padded lining for body support.
  • Strategically placed added padding creates a "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 secure the coat around the body for maximum support.
  • A soft, removable and washable terry cloth collar protects the shooter's neck and coat material.

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, a blue front with a silverback. 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 (an additional $20).

ALTERATIONS: Since our coats are individually hand-made by our 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 into 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.

Great coat
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Jan 7, 2019
I received my coat recently. It arrived much sooner than expected. I wanted to use it in some matches before submitting a review. This coat did require some acclimation after my old shooting coat. I had to get used to zipping and unzipping the sides and sleeve for the positions, but some practice before the first match had me quite comfortable. I do recommend the all position and ventilation upgrades. This coat gives me great support in the standing position. It's like you have a structure built around you. The quality is excellent and the Creedmoor staff is quite helpful. I am quite comfortable shooting both M1A and AR rifles with this coat. The padding and traction pads are excellent. If you have difficulty latching up, cross your legs while standing and start at the bottom. My scores are up and I'm a happy camper. Well worth the investment. Hope this helps. Be blessed.

Money well spent

I received my coat yesterday. I was promted by a friend that has had one for years. I chose Creedmoor for numerous reasons. I trust my friends advice, everything else I've purchased from them has been quality and whenever possible, I will always support an American made product. Especially from a company with a reputation such as theirs. I ordered a custom coat and unfortunately had a minor issue with the first delivery. This is exactly why I chose Creedmoor though. I didn't get any runaround. They sent me a return shipping label and made it right with ZERO hassle. This one fits perfect. I'm looking forward to Getting to the range. Thanks to everyone involved in getting this done and a Special Thanks to Michele Arrington! These are great folks making great products and standing behind them. Something you don't see too much of these days.

Cordura Hardback Coat
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Apr 6, 2017
Received my cordura hardback coat on 4/5/17 after ordering on 3/3/17 (much shorter than the anticipated wait time). This is my first shooting coat, so I don't have much to compare to, but he description that Creedmoor gives of "like resting against a fencepost" is pretty accurate. From just trying it out in the basement, it seems like it requires you to get a more solid NPOA, because it will hold you in position much more than just a regular shirt. You can't "muscle" your way into the black with the coat on, but that means you can't "muscle" your way out, either. It seemed to cut the best part of my hold in half. The coat seemed to fit well (snug across the shoulders, chest, and hips), and REALLY stabilizes my standing position. Everything seems to be very well made and stout. I can't imagine wearing it out for a long while. I can't wait to try it out this weekend at a course match.

Picked my coat up Saturday while at the D-Day + 72 Match. Fit was great and support was way better than my old Basic Shooting Coat. Hopefully after a little break in time it will help my scores improve.

Further tailoring options
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Dec 28, 2015
I have a 40" chest and a 30" waist. I called to inquire about further tailoring than a "tapered" cut. I was told this is not an option and I am dubious that the fit will be right. I wish for a few bucks custom tailoring was available. Also, when ordering color combinations, it would be nice to see it on a jacket, even if just simulated. I ordered black and silver, I have no idea what parts will show up black, and what silver at this point. Turn around time is a little lenghthy, but for quality, I understand. Thank you for inquiring. I've ordered several smaller orders, some from family as gifts, and sincerely thank you for your products and service. With the exception of a creedmore shooting glove that has the palm trashed after on a few matches, I recommend you to all new shooters. (Any chance of taking a look at that glove?)

Owner Response: Joel, Thank you for your comments. Yes, we'll be happy to take a look at your glove if you can email a couple of photos to shoot@creedmoorsports.com .

Just received my coat and it's a beauty! It appears well made and ready for years of service. Fast service also. Just 6 weeks from placing my order to delivery and that's during the Christmas rush! Can't wait for the next High Power rifle match.
