How to use "Greatcoats" in context?

A greatcoat is a type of heavy coat, typically made of wool, used to protect soldiers from the cold weather during the European Middle Ages, the Early Modern period, and the American Civil War. In the 16th century, hats and other headwear were generally not worn in cold weather, so greatcoats were essential for soldiers. They are typically full-length, with a hood, and a swallowtail coat.

Greatcoats had a profound effect on military strategy and tactics.
