After getting drenched this weekend, I wondered if this was the way forward! I have a gorgeous Boden hooded mac, but it's a bit stiff and not the sort of thing you can shove under a pushchair when the rain stops.
However, is the North Face one just an overpriced pac-a-mac, or is it so much more...!?
I'm not sure whether it is the Resolve one or not, but I have a short black North Face waterproof jacket. I love it. It is light, warm enough to wear without a fleece on all but the bitterest of days, very very very waterproof and doesn't look as 'sad mum' as the longer ones with multicoloured bits. I wear it to push the pushchair in the rain, did Buggyfit in it and before DS it went up various mountains including Snowdon. It's only disadvantage is that on a day like today, it can get a bit warm. But then it can be shoved under my tiny Maclaren.
I have resolve and a pack a mac, I stupidly wore pac a mac the other day and I felt horrible and sticky. The north face one can be worn with a t shirt under and it never feels like it is sticky, and it is very waterproof.
I have the resolve in the cream colour - goes with anything! (apart from skirts!). I have a largish handbag and just toss it in there whenever the weather looks iffy. Has saved me on many an occasion. Dh has it in the chocolate brown. We bought them from Blacks when they had one of their deals on - buy one get one half price.
