Having done extensive research into this over the years, I think you will find that any waterproof coat will state that it's waterproof. If the product info does not mention rain or water, its definitely not going to be waterproof. To get a fully waterproof coat you'll need to look at 'outdoor' shops / brands such as northface, berghaus etc etc (Blacks / Millets / Cotswold outdoor etc). All high street shop parkas will not be waterproof. I recently bought a coat from the Didrikson brand. 100% waterproof and windproof and very very warm (I'm a rugby and football mum so spend every weekend standing in the freezing cold and wet!). Mine was about £180 and is worth every penny!
