I rather fancy this - but have not bought from Sea Salt before. Does anyone know what the quality is like for the price? And what do you think of this parka?! I don't trust my own judgement any more!

I have two sea salt waterproof coats. They are very well made and very waterproof.

I've not heard of them before but really like the look of the parka. It's very neat, unfussy and I think you'd get really good wear out of it. It's classic without being boring.

Seasalt stuff is generally good quality. Haven't bought a coat from the though.

Seasalt is lovely, great quality, natural fibres and washes well. My friend has this coat and it's fab.

Rats, I hoped you'd disagree! Might have to try & save up, I rarely see things that I like! Does anyone know how the sizing comes up?

I've just bought a fleece and bought in my usual size and one up just in case. My usual size is spot on and if anything a tad roomy.

Lovely coat. envy

I don't like the shape to be honest

I agree that they are usually true to size. I think you should get it. wink

LOL Lexies - I still like it but I know what sue means about the shape. Also fancy a trench and I can't afford both! Am going to post some of my trench findings later. Struck by indecision, don't have much cash to spare for clothes generally so want to make sure I go for the right choice!

I doesn't really look like a parka though, does it? On the Sea Salt website it describes it as a mac - more pictures of it too.

It looks a little shapeless to me, although maybe that's just because I'm short and I know it would look awful on me!
