I’ve been looking for a few months for something nice but casual to wear in the rain whilst on walks or at the park with my toddler that could stand to get a little muddy, and I finally decided on this jacket. It’s been too cold for me to wear it out yet, but it really has everything you need and I have no doubt it will be waterproof.
The slide through pockets on the front are lovely, and the two hidden pockets in the interior were a nice touch. I also like that the toggles to tighten around the waist were inside as well, which is one of the reasons I bought it because I don’t like them on the outside. The hood is generous enough to cover your head even with your hair up, and is adjustable. The coat has a lot of corduroy, which is nice and soft and the navy colour is lovely and quite dark.
I’m 5’6”, 56kg and and bought a size 8, which was still a bit generous, but the sleeves are the perfect length for me and there is a snap to make them tighter if you want to keep the rain and wind out, or you can roll them up to show off the corduroy detail. Looks good with or without the hood, which snaps off.
The only thing I would change about this jacket is making it a tiny bit longer. It covers my bum perfectly, but you wouldn’t want to be out for hours in the pouring rain. If they made a “tall” version of this jacket with the waist and inseam an inch or two lower, or a longer length version, I would be all over it. Overall, very happy with my purchase, especially at this price!
