I am off to Scotland soon and would like a coat to take along that is wind and rain proof. My everyday coats are neither of these! Not too heavy or padded as would rather wear a cardigan underneath if cold.
Has anyone seen anything that shields from wind and rain but that also looks nice?
For additional info I'm 5"6, size 16, large norks.
They are quite nice aren't they. This is why I like MN, had never heard of Penfield before! Definitely an option thanks ToastedTeacakes. I like the bright green and yellow but would probably be too shy to wear them and end up playing it safe with navy. :-D
Danefae is the business if you are in a seriously wet place. I love mine and used the Danish e-shop, but you can find some models like this on Amazon.co.uk. I also have an Aigle and that's also a great coat.
Well, it might be slightly heavier-duty than what you're looking for, but if it's Scotland, then...maybe not! Didrikson's Cathlyn. It's light but very warm and totally waterproof. Fine to carry over your arm if you must.
I live in Ireland, and it's done me almost every day since September. For me this is a year-round coat.
Marking my place for future use. After getting a thorough soaking in Dorset last year I am looking for something longer than my Regatta waterproof jacket. My top half was fine, but my jeans and feet were soaking wet. When it rains that hard a short jacket simply doesn't do the job.
