Overcoat Peak (7,432 feet (2,265 m)) is in Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest in the U.S. state of Washington.[3] Overcoat Peak is less than .40 mi (0.64 km) northwest of Chimney Rock and both are within the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. Overcoat Glacier is on the east slopes of Overcoat Peak.

Overcoat Peak was named by Albert Hale Sylvester after he left his coat on the mountain on a surveying trip in 1897, which was also the first ascent.[4]
