Fantastic coat

Have been looking for ages for a warm, wind and waterproof coat - it is thin but super warm and looks great (am not a fan of faux fur) this ticks all the boxes - pricey but worth it

Great garment - Very satisfied

Very impressed with this jacket. Very comfortable fit and so well made. It's hard to believe (but good to know) it's made from mostly recycled polyester. Just need a proper winter to really appreciate it!

The warmest coat I've ever owned

Was unsure about this coat as it was right at the top of my price range! But I am so pleased I went for it. To start with the collar is a little stiff, but it soon softens up and the colour and hidden drawer string make it a practical choice for cold day commuting or country walks. The longer cuffs are really useful because they keep your wrists warm without the need for gloves and the fluffy hood lining means you don't need a scarf. The zip is a little stiff but I'm sure that will get easier with use. I really love this coat and would recommend it. I will wear it every day this winter.

Warm, Waterproof and Smart

I wanted a coat that had it all - warmth, waterproofness, comfort and a smart appearance, and this coat seemed like it would meet all the criteria. It did not disappoint! The coat's special filling certainly makes it the warmest coat I have ever owned, without bulk or overheating. I can wear it on long walks or for commuting and not feel sweaty. The waterproof fabric holds up well, in rain showers, downpours, or when spilling from my water bottle! The coat is also the perfect length for keeping the tops of my legs dry in the rain. Comfort is a real plus with this garment, from the cosy hood to the soft pockets and the inner cuff which enhances warmth and waterproofness. The one downside to this coat (hence 4 stars rather than 5) is that the side pockets are quite far round, making using them to warm your hands somewhat awkward with the angle. The front pockets are roomy for storing gloves, phone, etc but again feel slightly uncomfortable to use for hands. Overall this is an excellent coat which I'm glad I invested in. My favourite ever! I trust that it will last for a number of winters since it is made from such high-quality materials.

Sustainably made, warm, waterproof and looks great

Super warm and I can wear it with peace of mind knowing it was made using sustainable fabrics. I'm usually an 8 in Finisterre garments but sized up to a 10 as the 8 was a little too snug for my liking around my hips.
