Rain mac similar to Seasalt Janelle coat but longer length...?

My mum has announced she would like a new rain mac for Christmas- preferably full length. I've looked on the department store websites and haven't found much- maybe because rain macs are more for spring/ autumn...? I love the Seasalt Janelle coat but I think Mum wants a longer length one. Any ideas where I can look?! Thank you!

How tall is your mum?

Maybe 5 feet 2... she has osteoporosis so has shrunk a bit. Don't want a coat that will swamp her.

I'm 5'2 and the Janelle comes to mid-calf on me.

The Janelle is a great length, I'm 5ft4" and it's just past my knees. Rohan do great "proper" waterproofs too.

Check out John Lewis website.

Hmm, her last mac which she'd had for about 20 years was probably about mid-calf on her, so maybe the Janelle would do the trick. Will check out Rohan too. Thanks!
