Buying a winter coat after the winter sales have finished....
I've just bought the Seasalt Northstar. Slightly padded, good hood and about knee-length on 5'2" me. I got cactus green for a change but it comes in a brightish blue and a charcoal/navy too. Even better it was almost half-price.
No idea how warm it is yet as it only arrived yesterday, sorry. It's not overly padded and has plenty of room to wear layers underneath. I was more interested in getting something long enough to keep my legs dry that wasn't as bulky and too warm like the Lands End coat i have. It is the winter version of another coat they do so it should be warm.
I tried on the Janelle in our local Co-op which has a small Seasalt concession. It's a lovely coat but at just under 5' 4'' it was way too long on me especially at the back. The North Star was a much better length but they didn't have my size. I'd be going for that one if I had the spare cash. Instead I got a nice parka half price from Fat Face.
