This should accept jacke
had ne use Mantel instead.
Then I'm guessing you used dein Jacke, as if Jacke were masculine or neuter instead of feminine.
Duolingo corrects from left to right, so since dein Jacke don't fit together but dein is part of the possible combination dein Mantel, it thinks you got the second word wrong rather than the first.
Jacke is feminine and so it would have to be deine Jacke.
That said, "coat" is generally best translated by Mantel.
