FLUOROCARBON-FREE - WE PROMISED. WE DELIVERED.
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.
Great colour and very comfortable to wear
Glad I decided to buy this. Well made, FC free (thank you, Finisterre!) and pretty stylish as far as a practical waterproof goes. I've worn it in heavy rain and stayed dry. I had a bit of a 'mare with the delivery as it went AWOL for a few days. I did eventually get hold of it about a week after ordering. In terms of improvements to the coat, I'd echo others' comments about preferring a draw-cord tightening hood rather than elastic. Fairly roomy. I'm 5ft 9, size 8/10. Ordered a 10. Fits with room for layers & sleeves reach base of thumb.
Been splashing about in the rain in this and wellies quite happily. It's padded but not hugely warm, so jumpers and layers needed. Fits big, so that's no problem. I love it.
My new jacket arrived promptly and has had it's first outing- walking the seven sisters in a howling gale and pouring rain! I stayed dry and warm, all the way down to my knees. The very generous hood with a large peak is perfect for keeping out the rain. Deep pockets for stowing stuff and a handy zipped inside pocket for keeping phone etc dry. I love it!
Coat is lovely, I’m a large 10 but found the 10 too big so went for the 8. Fab colour. The only slight criticism I have is the zip is a little chafey on your chin when wearing for a long time so could benefit from a flap protecting the face from the zip.
Apart from that it’s a lovely length, nice & warm & completely waterproof! The holy grail of coats! Customer service was first class too.
