Waterproof, warm and lightweight, the Solus represents our signature blend of function, style and sustainability.

Top it off with our British Lambswool Beanie to keep warm on the coldest adventures.

For the majority of waterproof clothing, water repellency is achieved by treating fabrics with fluorocarbon-based Durable Water Repellents (DWRs). However, the fluorocarbons they contain leach slowly from the fabrics and enter the water system. Over time they bioaccumulate in the environment and into the food chain, with the potential to disrupt the immune system and fertility of both wildlife and human beings.

Traditional DWRs are made up of C6 or C8 long-chain chemicals. We had been using C6 for the past five years, which is comparatively better than C8 due to its ability to break down over time, making it slower to bioaccumulate. As a business we are by no means perfect, nor do we have all the answers, but in the face of an ever changing landscape, we always seek and commit to the best and most sustainable way of making our product. Last year we announced our commitment as a business towards eliminating fluorocarbons from our waterproof range by the end of 2017. We believed it was attainable and we're proud to have made it a reality.

Issue of hood

I love the shape of my new coat - the quilting qualifying it’s price

I’d worn it a couple of times before using the hood

Totally waterproof & beautifully wind proof but unfortunately the hood is a total let down

It comes too far over my head , really limiting my vision; it’s a real shame in an otherwise perfect coat - I should’ve checked before wearing it out

For an expensive raincoat it’s a disappointment

I want to say I’d still recommend as perhaps the hood suits some with bigger heads/hair !

Perfect parka

Really nice parka, a nice tone of green and a really good quality. Big inside pocket where nothing can fall out and a good length. I would recommend a smaller size. Even then you can wear a thick sweater or even a down jacket under when its really cold. Otherwise is has a perfect insulation for changing seasons.

Lovely coat, but fit is slightly odd

This coat is really nice on. Can be used all year round but I think I will use it mainly as a spring/autumn coat as I am a size 14-16 and it looks chunky with a big jumper underneath on me. I haven’t tried it out in terms of waterproofing yet but I had it recommended by friends who say it is a very practical coat. Only reason for 4 stars is the drawstrings which when pulled in give it an odd look. I’ve loosened them off and it looks better.
