I have two versions of the Else coat. Sleeves are long. I'm 5'8" and on a significantly shorter friend the proportions were not as good as on me. Sizing - true to size or even snug. I'm 10-12 and wear a M. Perfect for pears as the coat is A-line. But sorry, have no experience of the Terry.

DonaAna I seem to remember you mentioning these coats before - and for some reason I think you said the sleeves are long? Am I dreaming? I am 5ft 3, size 8-10. Want something warm & waterproof and knee length
I like the blue red minidot the OP mentioned, but I think the Terry would suit me more - do you know this coat at all? thanks
Shrew I spend some of my winters further north (somewhere fur coats worn with woolen layers underneath are a necessity in midwinter - it got down to windy -20 C last year), so I really needed the winter Danefae and have used it a lot during spring and fall. It's brilliant for near-zero weather when wet snow is falling. But yes, my Aigle Fetching is about the same weight and thickness than the midseason Danefae. The winter coat is not bulky like down coats, but it keeps you snug and warm. And unlike proper raincoats, it's not sweaty - you don't even notice that it's waterproof, but when it starts raining, you stay dry and warm.
That's the beauty of living in the UK - we can get away with a trenchcoat style coat with warm layers underneath! Although I too prefer to have one of each and have done exactly this with a different brand (Didriksons)...
I have both. Midseason is good for summer, fall and spring. Winter is for winter proper, temperatures +5C....-5 C; much too warm for above +10C temperatures.
The difference is the padding. The winter coat is padded inside - not very bulky, but warm enough. The midseason coat is just the outer coat material plus lining material. Watertight and windproof, but not as warm as a wool coat - more like a trench. You can make the midseason coat warmer by wearing a close-fitting knit sweater underneath.
