Help please I want a lightweight but warm and waterproof coat. If you know about Cotton Traders raincoats please help as buying from t'Internet is hard and delivery costs/ returns is expensive if not in the UK. My options are : Windermere Conwy Lakeside coats. Which is best please ?
I haven’t owned any of those specific coats, but I did have a Cotton Traders one ( one of the zip in flleece types), which one day just decided not to be waterproof anymore. In the middle of a week camping / hiking trip. I haven’t bought from them again.
Cotton Traders? I thought this section was "Style and Beauty" There is not the remotest possibility of looking half way acceptable in any item of clothing from Cotton Traders - have you looked at the Seasalt rainwear, much nicer.
I like these, but it very much depends on the design they're using for each year. Very lightweight but fully lined (including sleeves) with teddy bear fur so warm. It only last me for one year but it's not especially expensive and stays waterproof for that time.
(One year the designs were particularly hideous and I went without. But I've also had compliments on others I've had.The secret is to get one in the size that fits, don't go up one thinking that you can wear thick jumpers underneath.)
