It is a 3-star item produced by Grizzco and comes with a random primary ability generated when it is received. It is only available as a reward from Salmon Run as the monthly gear or in a Pink Capsule. It cannot be ordered from another player.
In Splatoon, the then-unnamed SRL Coat was used by members of the Squid Research Lab in the Splatoon Global Testfire, along with a set of dark sunglasses with Ink Recovery Up, and a pair of black dress shoes with white socks and Special Saver. The gear was never made available for regular players.
In Splatoon, it resembles a standard lab coat worn by scientists carrying out experiments. Two green backpack-style straps connect a large flag, which corresponds with the player's ink color, with what is presumably the Squid Research Lab's logo equivalent in Splatoon. A name tag is on the left side of the coat and a tie is tucked behind the coat, with their colors changing depending on what color ink is used.
In Splatoon 2, the buttons are now undone, on the left side, and it contains the Splatoon version of the Basic Tee underneath. The name tag has been replaced with a blue patch with an orange squid on it and a pink badge underneath with the same Squid Research Lab logo on it. The banner is no longer present.
The SRL Coat comes with a random primary ability that can also appear as secondary abilities, which prevents the wearer from having Ability Doubler, Haunt, Ninja Squid, Respawn Punisher, or Thermal Ink as they are exclusive to Clothing and cannot appear as secondary abilities. This primary ability is assigned randomly when the item is received. As a 3-star item, the SRL Coat comes with three additional slots for secondary abilities. Since it is made by the Grizzco gear brand, it has equal chances to roll any secondary ability.
