"I live up in the Pennine Hills and we get a lot of wet weather, I have never had a better waterproof coat. Bought for dog walking in all weathers and for my walk when i wild swim, no mater how much rain has been thrown at me i stay totally dry. Cant recommend enough" H Reid (see reviews)

The very reason I started this company was when I found this coat and you can read the full story here.

Influenced by the classic Drover's coat the Kensington is manufactured from a tough and hard-wearing, breathable fabric making it ideal for those who get stuck in when the weather takes a turn for the worse. Don't be fooled, by its "lifestyle" good looks, into thinking this is for light showers only - this long coat is fully waterproof and will look after to you in the biggest storms the UK weather can conjure up. We tested it in storms Ciara and Dennis and it passed with full marks.

The Kensington is perfect for dog walkers. No more messing around with waterproof overtrousers - just take from the coat stand and go. Those who love horses also respect this coat for many of the same reasons - they stay dry and they know that the coat is durable enough to cope with a yard environment. Should you wish to ride in the coat it opens at the rear via a series of press studs.

Unlike many of its competitors the Baleno Kensington long coat is tapered for the feminine form. Fabric is soft to the touch and the coat is fully lined and has a moleskin-lined collar.

Outer pockets have press studs to keep contents secure and inside there is a mesh pocket. There is also a zip fastened inside pocket handy for your phone etc.

Baleno Kensington is 120cm from base of collar to hem
Baleno Chelsea is 98cm from base of collar to hem

 

I spent 5-years and far too much money trying to find the perfect full-length raincoat. I eventually found perfection with a brand called Baleno. Following my search, I started this website.

I am so confident you will be happy with your Baleno full-length coat I offer a "28-day full refund even if worn guarantee". Julian Patrick, Managing Director.

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.

Sizing

Sizing is "very generous to allow for the optional zip-in fleece" and coats are most likely to be returned as "too large" than for any other reason.

If on the cusp, or unsure, or looking for a "slim fit" (light layers underneath) go one size smaller. If buying the zip-in fleece advice is to stick with usual size.

"I am usually size 12 but in a Baleno I am a 10", says Teresa. "but I would likely have to go up one size with a zip-in or chunky fleece".

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

Size 18: 64cm

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

"Love this coat. Perfect for muddy and rainy dog walks! I am 5’6 and comes down to just above my ankles. Great customer service too as I swapped coats twice to get the right size. Def size down - I did and still had room for a thick jumper :)" PP

Zip-in fleece (optional)

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

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.

Waveinn Trustpilot reviews

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!

Baleno Kensington coat

My wife loves it, a very good coat. Great at keeping the wearer dry. Her only gripe would be that the hood isn't deep enough to stop the fringe of her hair getting wet.

Super coat for those wet dog walks

Husband bought me same brand and style coat he’d bought himself, these really are excellent at keeping you dry, warm and importantly protect your lower legs also. Comfortable, easy to clean and stylish.
