The rain rolls off this coat and it is warm but light in weight... just the right warmth for those in-between dates (10-16 C). Great value in the sale. The sizing is not over-generous but there's just room to add warmth with an extra layer underneath for cooler days. I rally like the fact that the sleeves are lined with silky material that means they slip easily over a jumper. Only drawback? The hood is ridiculously large and flops right over one's eyes.
