Baleno Chelsea Women's mid-length 4-Season Waterproof Coat With Detachable Hood

Chelsea raincoat

Short Description
The Baleno Chelsea is a shorter version of the best-selling Kensington long raincoat. Same coat just a little shorter. 

In an ideal world we would have one of each (Kensington and Chelsea) and we would be very happy if all of our customers agreed with this sentiment. As with the Kensington, do not get taken in by the Chelsea's chic appearance. Like all Baleno coats the Chelsea is fully waterproof and created from a hard-wearing material. The Chelsea is tapered for fit. Material is soft to the touch and the coat benefits from full inner-lining and a moleskin-lined collar.

Details Accordian
Material: "Feels like smooth cotton/canvas". The outer fabric is a textured Dobby weave in 85% polyester 15% polyamide, with a waterproof PU laminate backing. Faux moleskin-lined collar and cuffs.
Warmth: The Chelsea is medium-weight ensuring you do not overheat during milder conditions. Fully lined - not quilted or padded.
Layering: You will likely need to layer up for winter weather (zip-in fleeces do NOT zip into the Chelsea).
Breathability: 3.000 gr/m².
Waterproof rating: 8,000mm hydrostatic pressure test.
Weight: 0.9kg

Length: Medium length.

Hood: Yes, with drawstring. Detachable via press studs. Also adjustable via strap and velcro on hood top.

Cuffs:Edged with faux-moleskin and adjustable via two press studs.

Seams: Taped.

Main Zips: One "chunky" zip (we like) for closing against the weather (protected by a material flap) and a second, smaller zip, for adding an optional fleece or gilet. The main zip ends approx. 29cm from the hem.

Pockets: Outer pockets have covering flaps and press studs to keep contents dry and secure. Inside the coat there is a single mesh open-pocket - handy for your phone or keys.

Press studs: Strong studs, spaced 11cm apart, that continue the length of the coat until about 17cm>from the hem. 


Baleno Kensington is 120cm from base of collar to hem.

Baleno Chelsea is 98cm from base of collar to hem.


Sizing is reasonably true on the Chelsea we feel.

Why not grab a tape measure and compare to a coat that fits you well from your wardrobe. With your coat laid flat measure across the front a couple of inches below the armpit to the same place on the other side.

Size 8: 49cm
Size 10: 52cm
Size 12: 55cm
Size 14: 58cm
Size 16: 61cm

We will always swap a coat for a different size. Why not order two coats and return one? We really do not mind.

Other information

Handy tip: I ordered my first Baleno from abroad as it was £20 cheaper. I did not even realise I was buying from abroad and was fooled by a small Union Jack! This turned out not to be such a great idea. The site suggested 7-8 days for delivery and this turned out to be around 20 days. And then i needed to change it for a new size as it came up small for me. So another couple of weeks to get it back and and more to get the next size up. Not only that, I lost more than £20 having to pay cross-border return costs. The whole adventure was around six weeks and was rather stressful.

This is a swift and intense test for presenting as a swift video. I have sprayed Baleno Kensington, Livingstone and Chelsea coats for over 5 minutes with a hose and all have remained dry. Julian Patrick, Longcoats.

Can I wash my coat and will it stay waterproof? The honest answer courtesy of Thomas from Baleno!?

"Yes, if the care instructions are followed. The care label can be found on the left lower inside of the coat. NO fabric softener and NO tumble drying as they can dissolve the taping and dry out the laminations. The lamination will become brittle and porous and will start leaking.

Same story with other taped and laminated coats all over the world.

Best is to brush dirt off rather than washing the coat.

People are much too-clean you know. It’s all in the head.

We never wash our dogs with soap, yet their fur is healthy, shiny and not smelly.

But they love a good brush from time to time".

Well said Thomas!

Great coat

Love it!

The Chelsea mid-length coat is lovely. It has a very classy looks as well as being functional. I got the size 12 knowing that I would need to be able to layer underneath and it was perfect. The 3/4 length is great for someone short as well - it comes close to my knees so with boots on I am almost totally covered. I'm 5'3".

Smart waterproof coat

Been looking for a long waterproof coat for a while, and just happened to find your website.Thankfully! The coat is everything it says it is. Long to cover skirts/trousers coming to just below my knee, lightweight, waterproof/windproof, the hood comes well over my face to protect from the rain, stylish, and arrived in record time. Size was perfect fit with room to wear a thick jumper/fleece in the colder months. Although expensive I would definitely recommend and think it is value for money.

Gorgeous Baleno Chelsea Coat

Lovely well made coat. As I am only 5ft 3ins the Chelsea is a great length falling several inches below my knees. True to size with enough room to wear a fleece when the weather is very cold. I have not worn in the rain yet but I’m sure it will be waterproof. I’m very happy with my purchase.

Really beautifull coat.
