Fatface hooded jackets (or other recs?)

The eternal quest for a relatively stylishly hooded jacket continues...I have a Didriksons Taylor for winter, which I LOVE, but am after something lightweight and versatile for Spring. Not too keen on any of the Seasalt ones (and v expensive). I like the look of the Boden Sussex jacket but they don't have my size left in the navy and am not keen on the other prints.

Does anyone have either the Cribbar jacket, the Lymington jacket or the Maisie mac from Fatface? Or any advice for fairly stylish, not too mumsy (I know....) options elsewhere? I'm not looking for a hooded trenchcoat type - more like a hooded, slightly fitted, fairly slimline jacket.

Many thanks.

Ive just got the Roxanne from Fat Face...I tried the other Fat Face ones on and preferred that one as it was more fitted and shorter.

Not yet but I do like the Lymington,I just can't decide.Love it in yellow and it certainly doesn't look mumsy in that colour!

Failing tgat,my alternative is a duffle style from matalan with a coated fabric and adjustable waist so it can nip in.It's quite cute in real life in the blue!

Ooh TripTrap I'm not too far from a Matalan - I could pop in and have a look. Does it seem waterproof? If you've seen the Lymington in real life what kind of fabric did it look like?

Heart I like the look of the Roxanne but I thought it didn't seem that waterproof - have you been out in the rain in it yet?!

It does seem it,it has that kinda coating on it.

The Lymington in real life,the fabric looked 'softer' than I expected and it looks quite nice tbh.

I'm thinking about this one here but can get it for £38 elsewhere. It looks quite similar to fatface ones but shorter.

I tried on the maisie one at fatface today, i didn't like any of the others for one reason or another. The only reason i didn't buy it was that there wasn't a 16 in store to try on, i tried a 14 which was perfect all over on me except the shoulder width, i have broad shoulders and it felt a bit narrow. I have a suspicion that the 16 would be too big on arms/rest of body, but just right on the shoulders sad
