It seems these are the ones for reasonably stylish waterproof bum coverage. Can anyone tell me about the fit? I'm 5ft 2 and slightly worried that the sleeves will be too long, and can't see any local stockists or online retailers with free returns. The Thelma looks like the one I fancy for decent length..

I'm 5ft2 as well and the sleeves are fine. Not hanging over my hands or anything. Mine has a sort of sweatshirt fabric cuff inside the sleeve which I suppose keeps it in place more.

Thank you! Which style do you have?

I've got this one which is Ronja which was replaced with Covert.

On me it's arse covering but not long which is what I wanted.

The sleeves are quite long on mine (I'm 5' 3") but I love it and don't really care. I just roll them under inside and they sort of stay that way. Because of the adjustable wrists, I guess.

@jetjungle: wow! Thank you.

Uh oh. Out of stock in my preferred size / colour. What is the sizing like? I'm a 10, or 8 if vanity sizing (i.e. Marks and spencer and Tesco).

@savoy, that's lovely, looks perfect for winter, looking for an un- lined one for spring / summer rain.

I'm 5 foot and my Thelma was just too big on me . The sleeves are really long . I eBay ed it in the end because I saw a tall woman wearing it and it looked amazing . I realised it looked shit on me !! confused
