F.A.Q.

Is it a real winter coat?

Do bears sh*t in the woods? Short answer – heck yea Wildcoats are real winter coats.

Weatherproof and designed to shred the mountains (plus maximum snack-storing-ability across seven pockets) — this bear is made to be your go-to winter coat.

What's up with the coat pre-sale?

We are currently actively shipping all bears!

Occasionally we run pre-sales when new products or re-stocks are en route to wildcoat hq. 

global shipping times are unpredictable with the current state of the supply chain, but we do our best to predict arrival and ship out times.

 

What's your return and exchange policy?

Returns – we want you to be 100% ecstatic with your Wildcoat! If you aren’t, you can return it for a full refund (we’ll cover the shipping on both ends). We just ask that all returns be in NEW condition with all tags attached within 30 days of delivery. 

Exchanges – we understand that all clothes fit differently, so if you aren’t totally satisfied with the fit of your Wildcoat… exchange it within 30 days of delivery! We’ll cover the shipping on both ends. Please hit us up if you’re unsure about sizing – we specialize in bear-on-human apparel (and I guess human-on-bear apparel… see Shreddy Teddy).

Is the fur real?

For the love of Berenstain, no! We love bears and use synthetic fur in all of our coats.

Are Wildcoats warm?

We are not exaggerating when we say each Wildcoat has the temperature rating of an actual bear.

If you tend to run hot (especially while skiing) we recommend simply wearing a long-sleeve tee under your bear (probably this one). Adjust accordingly for those springtime turns, and maybe ditch the ski pants for some short-shorts.

How do I clean / maintain my Wildcoat?

Dry clean only for a deep clean, otherwise you can easily wipe-down the inner liner with any gentle cleaning wipe (as you would your traditional ski coat!).

We also recommend a soft brush to keep your fur looking fresh. Don’t be afraid to ask someone to brush you, it’s a great way to make friends.

Does the fur get wet? How do I dry the coat after a day on the slopes?

Wildcoat fur repels snow quite well, and our 2-layer waterproofing will keep you warm and dry on the inside, but the fur can get a bit frosty on a powder day or in a big storm.

Fear not, knock off any frost and hang-dry overnight (we recommend draping it on a chair over a warm vent) and your Wildcoat will be dry and ready to rip on back-to-back days.

Is it really made for skiing/snowboarding?

We are ski bums at heart, so we prioritized FUNCTION while creating Wildcoat.

The hood stays up even when you’re ripping down a groomer, and the active fit combined with the 2-way zip allows for free flowin’ movement on any terrain.

What are the sizes?

All Wildcoats are unisex with sizes ranging from XXS to XXL.

Our coats are designed to be on the roomy side to allow for layers on the mountain on those bitter cold days.

The sleeves are also slightly extended to allow for winter gloves to be worn under the mittens.

Check our Size Guide to determine your perfect fit.

Are Wildcoats only for skiing/snowboarding?

Wildcoats were designed with snow sports in mind, but you can rock this beautiful, beastly coat anywhere.

Camping? Yes, just don’t forget to double stack your s’mores.

Out on the town? Pics or did didn’t happen.

Cuddled up with boo on the couch? Obviously, bear cuddles > all.

Can the hood be worn with/without a helmet?

Yes! Designed to be worn with a brain-bucket on the slopes (smart bears protect their noggin) or sans-helmet out on the town.

Our three-point hood cord system allows for 360˚ of free-flowin’ comfort no matter the occasion — all discreetly hidden within low profile fur pockets.

Where are you based?

Wildcoat was born, designed, and heavily tested in the mountains surrounding Boulder, CO.

If you’ve seen a bear skiing the Colorado slopes between 2017-2021, that was most likely our founder, Carlo!

Where do you ship? Is shipping really free?

We currently ship within the USA, and YES – we believe certain things in life should be free; mimosa refills, luggage on flights, and bear-coat-shipping.

What's the warranty on my bear?

These aren’t your average show-bears! Our coats are designed to be used on the mountain, and are built to withstand the regular demands of a ski season. Wear and tear will happen, especially around frequently used areas of the coat. However we’re happy to assist with any extraneous craftsmanship or material failures. 

Please email Teddy@wildcoat.com with a lil description + pics of your coat should your Wildcoat have any issues!
