here with free delivery and a free gift.

Good contender for school run/work coat?

It's not at all shiny like in the picture, and the free gift was a pashmina.

ooh - does it come up big or small? How warm is it? Is there a hood?

Pretty true to size. I got my normal size and there's room for a warm jumper.

Has a hood, don't know how warm yet, but the blurb does say that wind is the greatest factor in being cold and that as it's windproof it will be warm.

I got the noir, which is a lovely blue-black. I tried on the red about a year ago, but didn't buy because if the price, and it was a lovely colour too.

I think it is reasonably bargainous for a proper waterproof coat especially considering the original price.

It was sternly tested at a local car show today, it is at a high up exposed show ground and it was blowing a gale and bucketing down. I was very warm and dry, although it definitely needed another layer under it. It goes right diwn to my knees. I also felt far more stylish than I normally do at these things.

That is lovely although I've already bought two new coats this season so couldn't justify another. smile
