Probably because I washed it and have removed any small protection it had against the rain.
I need to replace it .
Problem is I'm six feet tall and getting coats to fit is a nightmare.
I'd like knee length, not belted, with a detachable hood. Budget about £200.

Wash it with nikwax. You can still buy a new one.

And don't buy Seasalt. Tin cloth my arse.

Try Diriksons - I'm 6' and the Thelma I have fits brilliantly and keeps all the elements out. It's going into its third winter so worth the £
