Salt Farm Chore Coat - 25th Anniversary Edition




A COAT FOR ALL SEASONS – If you can only have one Atlantic Rancher coat, this is the one to have. Its ¾ length makes it wearable for just about any occasion. Uninsulated, works just as well over a t-shirt as it does stuffed to the collar with sweaters, vests and flannels.

FUNCTIONAL, DURABLE & PRACTICAL – Built with our proprietary DryHandle®, 100% weatherproof fabric in 12oz. weight. It’s lightweight, and because it has no waxes or oils, you won’t be dealing with that funky odor or messy bleeding onto other garments or upholstery. 

ABUNDANT UTILITY– In all, the Salt Farm Coat has 7 pockets not counting the two interior pockets. The dump pockets are huge, gusseted for expansion and have a fold over flaps with double button closures. 

LIVE THE PART…DON’T JUST LOOK GOOD DOING IT– Our products are all built to perform in weather-rich environments and to excel at the task for which they were intended…whether that has you saddled to a John Deere® in the Sandhills of Nebraska or to a Thule® all-terrain stroller in Central Park. 

LIMITED EDITION – Our 25th Anniversary Salt Farm Coat is a limited production run, each is marked with a unique serial number identifier. 

From Maine to Alaska, heavy weight cotton tarps are perhaps one of the most appreciated and commonly found “tools” on working farms and ranches. There's a reason. From covering equipment to rescuing livestock from a mud hole, its durability and versatility are irreplaceable and legendary. We think of our Salt Farm Coat in similar terms. 


The Salt Farm Coat Story

                                                                  Excerpt from our original 1995 catalog:

"The Ram Island Salt Farm, just south of Portland, Maine on Cape Elizabeth, sits on the east side of the tiny inlet at the top end of Higgin's Beach. Among other things, they make hay here, May through October. From the brow of the hill, the fields drop in a deliberate free-fall right down to the Atlantic. No beach there. Just rock and salt spray make the transition. In the barns above, Phineas Sprague, Jr. still restores wooden lobster boats. Every winter, for as long as anyone can recall, his father Phineas Sr., has rowed out past the point in his Barnegat Bay Sneakbox to gun for eiders. God willing, this year won't be any different."

From Maine to Alaska, heavy weight cotton tarps are perhaps one of the most appreciated and commonly found “tools” on working farms and ranches. There's a reason. From covering equipment to rescuing livestock from a mud hole, it's durability and versatility are irreplaceable and legendary.

We think of our Salt Farm Coat in similar terms. We're bringing back this workhorse of a coat, made identical to the original save sizing adjustments and a 100% cotton shirting fabric lining. Full, boxy, sturdy...practical. Large, functional dump pockets and a collar that feels right, up, because it serves its purpose. The 100% cotton, 12oz DryHandle® fabric is weatherproof and keeps it dry and clean. Spot clean by hand using mild soap if necessary.

The 25th Anniversary Salt Farm Coat is a limited production run, and each garment is marked with a unique serial number identifier.

Unmatched Versatility & Build

As a long-known jacket enthusiast (amongst my peers) and having grown up in Syracuse and Canada around A LOT of workwear, I have to say that this is THE most handsome and impressive piece I've ever owned. The cut, construction (inside and out), wear, fold, and texture are all just beautiful. I am not exaggerating when I say that I have yet to meet up with anyone who hasn't almost immediately complimented me the first time they see it (even waiters at restaurants). If I had to make one small gripe, I would say the flannel on the interior could be slightly thicker (similar to the LL Bean's scotch plaids), but I suppose this is better for layering, making the jacket more versatile in different temps.

I've worn it on long cold outdoor kiln firings, wood splitting, etc., and even on dates (women go crazy for this thing) haha. Not to sound too dramatic, but this coat is unlike anything I've ever come across in true quality. Your product feels like something I pulled out of a vacuum-sealed bag from the mid-century (in the best way possible).

Keep up the great work, design, and unmatched quality!

Comments: This is the only product I've bought from Atlantic Rancher. Shipping was fast to our rural area. Web site is excelllent. More information about what DryHandle fabric is would be useful and how to maintain its water repellency.
Salt Farm Chore Coat kept me dry in hours of Northern California rain

I live on the Mendocino Coast in Northern California. We have a cool Mediterranean climate meaning all of our rain for the year comes in the winter and the temperature all year long is between 35 and 65 degrees. If you want or need to get outside during the winter months, you need to be comfortable with the rain. And if you do get out, it's nice to wear something that can manage the epic overgrowth of blackberry brambles and also keep you dry. I can put this jacket on and go for a three-hour hike in the redwoods or birding along the coast, and not worry about the rain. The lack of insulation in this jacket is ideal for our climate. I just add as much insulation underneath the jacket as I need for that day, and walk out the door. I used to carry a backpack for some food, coffee, gloves, field guides, etc when I would go on long day hikes. With the large and numerous pockets, I skip the backpack and just fill my pockets.

I held off on this review until I got caught in a proper sustained rain. During the annual Christmas Bird Count in our area, I spent several hours in steady rain with camera batteries and some food in my pockets, but my shirt, batteries, etc were bone dry when the sun finally came out. Is the coat waterproof? No. Is it weather resistant enough to handle several hours of blowing rain. Yes.

Before buying the coat, I seriously questioned whether the coat would be worth the cost. However, the tailoring, design details, durability and utility in all kinds of situations means that I now use it instead of the other 4 coats sitting in my closet.

I'm a small general contractor and I have no doubt this coat would handle the rigors of my work day, but frankly, the coat looks too good to be covered in caulk, paint drips, wood sap and concrete splatter. I'll keep my junk coat for work and use the Salt Farm Chore Coat for everything else.

I only write an online review every few years. But the Chore Coat is excellent and deserving of high praise. Thanks for a stellar product.

Comments: Thank you for calling me to discuss fit! I have such a hard time buying clothes in stores, much less online. Your call was greatly appreciated to ensure the fit would be good. And it is. I am so very glad and happy the AR brand has been revived and seems to be growing strong!
This in not a coat... It's armor against the elements!

First, I'd like to just say that I placed an order for this coat and not even 15 minutes later, Engle - yes, the owner - called me personally to inquire about size and fit to be sure I had ordered the correct size. AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE! I couldn't be happier with this coat. I've been looking for something to wear for upland bird and duck hunting that could also handle a night out on the town with the Mrs. or a Friday night high school football game. There are just too many features to list in a brief review. But suffice it to say, you will NOT be disappointed by this coat. I am 6' 0" weighing 225 lbs with 36/37 arms. The XL size coat fits perfectly. It fits well on its own, yet has room enough to place a couple of layers underneath which I am a huge proponent of being an outdoors kinda guy. No shortage of storage and I absolutely love the huge bellow pockets for shotgun shells and gloves and keys and the kitchen sink. I have owned many similar-styled coats from Orvis, Barbour, LL Bean... This coat puts all the rest to shame. No lie... This coat and the quality contained within will last me the rest of my life. I can't wait to pair it with some blaze orange and head out into the Maine backwoods for grouse or drape it with my olive drab duck-vest and call lanyard in the Maine swamps, bogs and salt marshes. I know it sounds odd, but I simply cant wait to get this coat dirty and put it to the proverbial test. I'm sure it will perform flawlessly. Like other products from AR, this one feels like it works for you and with you with stellar freedom of movement, fit, form and function. Another well thought out product from Engle and the rest of the AR crew. Kudos!!!!

Comments: Great experience when I had questions about ordering my coat. Engle was super helpful and I enjoyed talking to him.
The Atlantic Farm Chore Coat is a great coat for sea or land farms.

Purchased my Atlantic Farm Chore coat several weeks ago. Fortunately, the weather changed in Missouri this week and I was able to wear the jacket on a cool and rainy day. Stayed dry and enjoyed the coat very much. The jacket looks good and fits very well. I was able to move around in it comfortably while finishing my chores. I have number of coats and jackets, but I really like this chore coat the best. Spoke to Engle on the phone while trying to decide on my purchase. He was very friendly and helpful. Also, my coat arrived very quickly and well packaged. I'm sure I'll be an ongoing customer of Engle and Victoria at the Atlantic Rancher Company. Highly recommend the company and its products. Give Engle a call.

Salt Farm chore coat review

All I can say is it’s a a very good coat. I was expecting something good, but after wearing and breaking it in a bit, it’s better than I thought it’d be. Very pleased and will be buying another.
