Please see the next paragraph for a history on these coats. Unlined. Front wooden button closure. Front pockets. Wikipedia History: "In the North American fur trade, point blankets were one of the main European items sought by native peoples in exchange for beaver pelts, buffalo robes, pemmican, moccasins, and other trade goods. They were desired because of wool's ability to hold heat even when wet, and because they were easier to sew than bison or deer skins. Wool cloth of one kind or another was traded as far back as the French regime in North America (1500-1765), but HBC point blankets were introduced in 1780 to compete with similar blankets offered by the Montreal-based private traders.The blankets were often produced with a green stripe, red stripe, yellow stripe and indigo stripe on a white background; the four stripe colors were popular and easily produced using good colorfast dyes at that time. From the early days of the fur trade, point blankets were made into hooded coats called capotes by both natives and French Canadian voyageurs which were perfectly suited to Canada's cold winters."
