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.
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.
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.
