Waterproof smart coat with hood?

9 replies

Has anyone seen or can recommend a good waterproof coat with a hood that is smart enough for work and meetings etc? I've got drop offs in two different directions to school and nursery starting next week and really dislike pushing a buggy and trying to hold an umbrella at the same time. From there I go straight to work and often have meetings out and about so needs to be fairly smart. Thanks

I bought this recently for walking with the pram but not looking like I was going for a hike:

Fairly expensive but proper waterproof and I am hoping it will last me a long time!!

Thanks, that does look nice but think I need something knee length as otherwise the rain runs onto my thighs and drives me nuts!

Really rate this from Seasalt. The belt can be fastened behind your back and it looks better that way I think. Material feels lovely, hood great, waterproof and breatheable and the navy one is reduced!

any thoughts on the uniqlo blocktech ones?

the seasalt ones dont look right on me (or enough for me to justify the price/commit to one) so wondered about these instead.

I live in the land of horizontal rain (Scotland) and my Didrikson is invaluable.

I wore it during the Beast of the East winter and didn't get wet once!
