To think winter coats that are not waterproof are utterly pointless?

And why are there so many of them around? We want a parka style coat but about half of them are not waterproof. Do people really spend £35 + on a coat and have to buy another, just as warm, for rainy/snowy days??

And why do so many, otherwise very warm-seeming, boys' coats end at the bottom, thereby being more of a jacket? I don't see as many girls' coats like that. Do boys have freeze-proof bottoms?

I am getting the rage with coat-shopping, can you tell? smile

AIBU?

I can easily spend 3 hours a day walking in the rain/horrible freezing sideways wind/hail pushing buggy, so would love a really nice waterproof, warm coat.

Woolen duffels are actually pretty good, unless it's really torrential. But my waterproofs don't stand up to torrential either.
