I just want something that looks reasonable and keeps the water out, is that too much to ask smile
Any suggestions gratefully received. Thank you.

Hi Klaw, it's just too hard isn't it [sobs]

I have PMT tho, so could all change tomorrow.

Boden have a nice raincoat.

Not a jacket tho. And I don't know if it's waterproof.

I got quite a nice raincoat jacket in M&S earlier this year. There's not enough of it tho (IMO now!) to really keep you dry in the rain.

Hi Clary, which one is it. Can I admit to loving the red patent jacket...unfortunately would only have the confidence to wear it in the back garden grin

That's the one isn't it. Just read the details, sorry.

very, umm, touristy

Flower one is cute though!

Not really a jacket either but I've been dying to show someone it for a few days now! grin

Hawkshead are pretty good

ooh yes that patent jacket is rather fine

The raincoat I meant is this one but of course you can't actually buy it unless you like the colour I have (purple pattern) oh and I see they have orange back in stock in larger sizes!

If I had the money I would be tempted with some of these Gekko

That urban mac isn't waterproof, I remember people on mumsnet saying that last year. No comments to that effect on their website though.

I bought a Kirsten rain mac. It looks like it would be water proof but it's not. can't believe i was conned.

What about lands end: women's coats here

I have a boring North Face parka from Blacks though.

MaggieLeo Tue 01-Sep-09 22:56:46

this is nice actually

maggie the Boden urban mac says it's showerproof.

Not sure what that means but if it lets in the rain then mine's going back grin

There is a comment about it in one of the reviews I noticed.

Can't get pic of landsend one to appear but it sounds nice!

Not cheap tho are they that's almost Boden prices wink

Thanks for all the suggestions! I am going to spend some hours trawling through tonight and will let you know if I find anything marvellous smile

God, yes, post if you find anything. I really like the lands end one, Maggie, but I want something with a hood. I'm not sure it is possible to find a nice coat with a hood, but I'm going to try. Ideally, I also wanted dark grey. Do you think I am asking for too much?!

\maybe if you're stylish, you're supposed to wear one of those jaunty little mac hats. not sure i could pull that off myself, wihtout looking a bit..... cutesy-pie faux francais.

I think I'd look like Paddington.
