- Reaction score
Prior to a few days ago, I'd never heard of loden coats, but I've been reading a little about them and they sound great. I may have a chance to look at some in a couple of weeks, but in the meantime, I'm trying to understand why they're not more popular, at least here in the U.S. They're warm (albeit not tremendously so) and water-resistant, so they would seem to be quite functional. Is there some objection to how they look? Are there any other disadvantages that I'm not thinking of?
