this coat

It's in that fashionable sort of technical fabric. V waterproof. Very warm (nearly passed out in the shop trying it on). Bum covering. Has those sporty cuffs you can put a thumb through. Also side zips so it fits over bums without being huge round the waist.

Now just need winter weather.

It doesn't say it's waterproof. Otherwise it would be great.

Backingvocals Sun 08-Oct-17 17:40:56

Ooh you are right. I'm saying waterproof but I haven't tested that. I'm assuming from the fabric texture that it is but perhaps not. Tsk at my unreliable reporting.

It's got "Stormwear™ technology"....

AuntPol Sun 08-Oct-17 17:45:55

It does say it's their stormwear fabric/finish though. So it should keep you dry in some rain, but not necessarily in a massive downpour. Good find, OP!

X post with multivac !

That is unbelievably ugly

You'd look like you were wearing a sleeping bag

Didn't expect to see you around these parts, Arsene Wegner grin

Backingvocals Sun 08-Oct-17 17:57:53

Ok maybe 'style and beauty' is not quite right grin. But effective and decent maybe?

I saw that coat in M&S , really liked it , the zipped sides and the thumbholes.
I don't need another coat and I certainly don't need a warm coat (flushes)

'Really nice' is subjective.

Bombardier25966 Sun 08-Oct-17 19:01:32

It's not for me, but I could see how it might appeal if outdoor watching sports and the like.

This is a little more stylish?

Really nice? Nope, hideous.
Practical? I can't imagine wearing a duvet to do things is ever practical!

I really like it OP. Looks lovely and cosy. I don't think it is ugly at all.

OlennasWimple Sun 08-Oct-17 19:35:17

Those of us who have spent many hours stood on wet, muddy touchlines would appreciate a coat like this, OP

AgentProvocateur Sun 08-Oct-17 19:35:55

I saw this in store and I'm swithering. Last winter wasn't particularly cold here (Glasgow) but previous ones have been, and I commute by public transport. I'm small and dumpy, so it's not very flattering on me. But it looks so warm.. (I have waterproof covered already)

HLBug Sun 08-Oct-17 19:48:28

Ahh swithering. Now that's a word I've not heard in a good wee while @AgentProvocateur - thanks for that smile I used to swither all the time, but now I think I just faff.

I like the coat OP, and hope it serves you well.

I've got this in my basket at the minute (along with a couple of others). Just need to decide which one to go for.

Scabbersley Sun 08-Oct-17 20:43:43

I would buy one if it was waterproof. Storm wear technology is meaningless

If I had to draw a " mum coat " that would be it 😷.

Aderyn17 Mon 09-Oct-17 15:32:56

For me a mum coat would be one of those waterproof jackets from mountain warehouse with a detachable fleece!

Kitee Mon 09-Oct-17 15:34:32

The arms look really long...

DaisyBD Mon 09-Oct-17 17:09:23

nothing says 'mum coat' to me like a parka with a furry hood. ideally worn with skinny jeans and a breton top.

imjessie Mon 09-Oct-17 17:30:02

Ooh I tried this on and loved it . I do think it’s a lot of money for padding though . It’s not feather and it’s not waterproof .. shame because I really liked it .

Shockers Mon 09-Oct-17 20:15:53

My warm parka style touchline coat is from Seasalt and is still 100% waterproof after 4 years.
It's not the prettiest, but I'd still choose it over the M&S one.
