About the Baleno Kensington

The Kensington never needs reproofing to be waterproof.

Short Description
The Livingstone long coat is based on the classic full-length Drover's coat - updated with the latest comfortable, hard-wearing, breathable, waterproof materials.

If you experience British weather and have to go out in it, whether you like it or not, then you need a Livingstone coat. We took the Livingstone coat out in storms Dennis and Ciara and stayed dry from tip to toe. The Livingstone is the ideal long coat for walking the dog, no faffing around with over-trousers. The material the Livingstone is made from is soft to the touch. The coat has a moleskin-lined collar and is fully-lined internally. Once you have owned a long coat you will never look back. You go out in the wind and the rain and you stay dry - that's it.

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 Livingstone is medium-weight ensuring you do not overheat during milder conditions and means the bottom half of the coat does not blow open in the wind. Fully lined - not quilted or padded.
Layering: You will likely need to layer up for winter weather or you can purchase an optional zip-in fleece.
Breathability: 3.000 gr/m².
Waterproof rating: 8,000mm hydrostatic pressure test.
Weight: 1.6kg

Length: Full, over the boot.

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. 64cm from the hem.

Pockets: Outer pockets have covering flaps and press studs to keep contents dry and secure. Inside the coat there is a separate mesh pocket and a zipped pocket (15x15cm) - handy for your phone or keys.

Press studs: Strong studs, spaced 16cm apart, that continue the length of the coat until about 24cm from the hem. 


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

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



Fit: If not buying the szip-in fleece we recommend dropping a size as the coats are oversize for adding a fleece (if you are normally a 14 then buy a 12). These coats are VERY generous to cope with the optional zip-in fleece and even dropping a size will usually allow you to layer up underneath. If adding a zip-in fleece choose usual size is best bet. Even better - buy two and send one back!

Height: We believe the Kensington to be suitable for women 5'0" or taller. If shorter than this we recommend the Baleno Chelsea. The Kensington measures 127cm from the top of the collar to the hem (120cm from base of neck) and the Chelsea 105cm (98cm from base of neck)

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.

Zip-in fleece (optional extra purchase)

The Baleno Sarah fleece is an elegant zipped garment made from high quality Sherpa fleece (100% polyester). It has a stylish faux leather trim around the zip and collar and two outer pockets.

It's a perfect fleece to wear on its own but it is primarily designed to be zipped into the Baleno Kensington long raincoat for extra winter-warmth and a truly cosy feel.

The body shape is flattering and slim fitting so that it doesn't add bulk when zipped into your coat.

The high quality fabric is super soft to touch, breathable and anti-pilling.

Machine washable, can be ironed but no tumble dry.

We recommend that you order exactly the same size as your coat. The zips are designed to perfectly match between sizes.

Useful information

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!

Waterproof Long Coat

Quality Exactly what was needed. Good quick service.

Lois Fenn
Navy Baleno Kensington Size 12

Efficient delivery and very pleased with coat. It’s very well made and looks it. I am a large 12 and it fits perfectly. So far in the rain and hail I have stayed completely dry. It covers the top of my wellies so no more wet legs. If I were to be picky I would have a soft material chin guard to stop chaffing when fully zipped up under chin, an additional hood adjustment to hold it comfortably in place and finally zip up hand warmer side pockets. That is being picky, it’s a great coat and does the job for dog walking in any weather.

Thanks for this Lois :-) I wear a scarf sometimes and tuck it around the neck of the coat. Also I have a bandana for same purpose. Stay dry!

Great dog walking coat.

I have been looking for a coat like this for dog walking through the seasons . Keeps me warm and dry . The leg straps are ideal for wet and windy coastal walks.

Susan Fowler-Johnson
